Professor Webster

The best report of Webster’s trial is that edited by Bemis. The following tracts in the British Museum have been consulted by the writer: “Appendix to the Webster Trial,” Boston, 1850: “Thoughts on the Conviction of Webster”; “The Boston Tragedy,” by W. E. Bigelow.


The Mysterious Mr. Holmes

“The Holmes-Pitezel Case,” by F. B. Geyer, 1896; “Holmes’ Own Story,” Philadelphia, 1895; and “Celebrated Criminal Cases of America,” by T. S. Duke, San Francisco, are the authorities for this account of the case.
