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.”

Bequest of Benno Loewy
