WHILE imprisoned in Newgate, though thoroughly persuaded I should never be tried, I yet thought it a very serious duty to prepare for my Defence. It was accordingly written during my

detention and being first ready was first sent to the press. In point of order however it was necessary to be placed the last : this is the reason that the paging recommences with the Defence. It is likewise necessary to add, that it must be read under the supposition that the trial had proceeded, the witnesses had been heard, and that the pleadings of my counsel were finished; for under this supposition it was written.
