3rd January 1813: The Treasury Solicitor, Henry Hobhouse, has concerns that prisoners at York may try to escape


Sunday Eveng [3rd January 1813]

Dear Sir,

Ld Sidmouth may depend on having his Wishes complied with in respect to Advices from hence.

We propose trying the Murder first, but from what I hear from the Gaol, I am rather apprehensive an Attempt will be made by the Prisoners to alter this Course.

I am sorry to tell you that Le Blanc is ill to day. But he is nursing himself, & I hope will be able to sit Tuesday if not tomorrow.

I am
Yrs most faithfully
H. Hobhouse

[To] J Beckett Esq

This letter can be found at HO 42/132.
