Book Description

The Reverend Samuel Smith was the Ordinary (Chaplain) of Newgate Prison from 1676 until 1698. He produced many fascinating accounts of the last days of condemned criminals, usually in pamphlet form but also in booklets like this one.

In 1679 when the booklet was published, anti-Catholic sentiment was at a height in England. All the condemned belong to the Roman Catholic faith. The Anglican Smith attempts with little success to bring them to see the error of their ways before their final hour.

Editorial comments by historian Stephen Hart aid the modern reader with some of the more obscure contemporary details.
