THE NEPHEW OF A BRITISH PEER.

In 1813, the nephew of a British peer was executed at Lisbon. He
had involved himself by gambling, and being detected in robbing
the house of an English friend, by a Portuguese servant, he shot
the latter dead to prevent discovery. This desperate act,
however, did not enable him to escape the hands of justice.
After execution, his head was severed from his body and fixed on
a pole opposite the house in which the murder and robbery were
committed.

The following facts will show the intimate connection between
gambling and Robbery or Forgery.
