A sentence.

--Lord Campbell said he himself heard a Judge at Stafford thus sentence a prisoner to death for forgery: "And I trust, through the merits and mediation of our blessed redeemer, you may experience that mercy in another world which a due regard to the credit of the paper currency of the country forbids you to hope for here."
