William Harrison Ainsworth : Jack Sheppard

Statement of a juvenile offender: "I have been twice in prison. I was only in Liverpool two days. I came from Manchester to the races; I had no work. I have been at all the theatres... I have robbed my parents to satisfy my desire to go to the theatres; ...I have seen 'Jack Sheppard' performed; I think it will be the means of inducing boys to copy his tricks. I have read his life; many boys have it."

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: H.T.      Print: Book, Serial / periodical, read as numbers or volume?
