Sir, we are hoping you will see
the folly of granting so many re-
prieves to murderers, after so many
murders day after day. We think
it is time you or your friends
were killed in one way or another
so that you will not be so ready
to let them off with 20 years which
quickly passes so they can come
out, and do their slaughter again
Hanging is much too good for mur-
derers. What they deserve is their
heads chopped off as in the old
days, and no silly blubbering at
losing their lives. It is the victim
and their friends who should get
the sympathy, and not the murderer
sane or insane. Hoping for a saner
