William Harrison Ainsworth : Jack Sheppard

Statement of juvenile offender: "I have been six times in prison and four times discharged, and am now waiting trial... I have been to all the theatres... I never saw 'Jack Sheppard' performed. I have often heard and read about him: they all seem to say he was a great man and a great prison breaker; and when he was at liberty like a gentleman."

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: M.F.      Print: Book
