Mary Ella Brigham's memoirs?
on August 20, 2017
From the introduction: "The account presented in these pages of 19th Century America's most famous murder case is excerpted and adapted from the unpublished memoirs of a (thus far) unknown lady of Fall River, Massachusetts. Since the typewritten, unedited manuscript came to light at a 1990 estate sale, its provenance has been established to a satisfying degree. As part of the contents of an unopened trunk, it resided since the turn of the century in the basement of a private archive in Boston."
No page numbers in the book; on a page with a drawing of Andrew J. Borden, near the back of the book, a newspaper article from The Fall River Herald - has a statement from the servant, Bridget Sullivan, to the police that she was in the attic washing windows at the time of Andrew Borden's murder and that she didn't see anyone enter or leave the house. Emphasis on LEAVE! Her bedroom window overlooks the back yard and she has a view of the barn door! So much for Lizzie's alibi! Remember, Bridget was said to have been laying on her bed resting before starting the noon meal on the day of the murders. All kinds of gems in this well done book; very glad I bought and read.
