Fatal Effects of Gambling Exemplified in the Murder of William
Weare. London: Thos. Kelly, 1824.
The message of this treatise about the murder of the gambler William
Weare is all too clear: “A comment on the extraordinary circumstances
developed in the narrative, in which gambling is proved to be the
source of forgery, robbery, murder and general demoralization.”
