During this interval, one of the servants, happening to examine the apparel she had worn on the night of the murder, had discovered in her pocket the picture of my mother, which had been judged to be the temptation of the murderer.
This was a strange tale, but it did not shake my faith; and I replied earnestly, "You are all mistaken; I know the murderer.
Victor says that he knows who was the murderer of poor William.
No time was lost in committing the murderer to Newgate; then a new building, recently completed at a vast expense, and considered to be of enormous strength.
