Broadside entitled ‘Awful Judgment’

This broadside story begins: ‘A Full and Particular Account of the Dreadful Punishment inflicted on Mr JOHN SYM, a Respectable Gentleman in Hampstead, who was in a moment struck Blind by Lightning, for giving False Evidence against his own Servant Maid, by which she was condemned to Death, but was afterwards providentially saved by his voluntary Confession at the place of Execution.’ The sheet was published in 1834 and cost one penny. for more click here
