Subject: happy? – Dec 16 (O, Cromwell!)
From: Abby Sale
Date: 16 Dec 05 - 08:08 AM

Ollie Cromwell became lord protector of England, Scotland & Ireland on 12/16/1653

        A thief once rode up Holborn-Hill,
         towards Oliver Cromwell's pallace;
        A maid that bore him some good will
         had begged him from the gallows:
        "Oh no" (quoth he) "I'le go to the gibb,
        And not be a slave to my own rib,
         drive on the cart, good fellows!"

                "The Batchelor's Delight" from The Roxburghe Ballads,
                Wm Chappell, 1875, vol III, p426

John F Morgan Horton died 12/16/1897. It was "The Last Public Hanging in West Virginia," by Tom T Hall
