A letter containing details of the Dr Pritchards hanging.
20 August 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

For those that may be interested, I have a letter written by my great grandfather, who was an eye witness to the hanging of Dr. Pritchard in Galsgow. Fascinating to think that the hanging was "open to the public" at the time.

Here is a piece of the letter:

Glasgow 31st July 1865

My dear Mother,

You will be surprised when I tell you that I was down to see the end of Dr Pritchard, he faced his doom like as if he was going to a platform to speak, he never moved the whole time even when the Executioner adjusted the rope around his neck, it was an awful scene, the drop fell, he was in eternity, but he died penitent acknowledging the justice of his sentence.

I remain dear Mother,

Your affectionate son,


Amazing stuff!!!
