dc.description.abstractLetter to Alexander Hamilton, Queenston, from Alexander McLeod, Sherriff’s Office, Niagara. The letter states that he has no doubt the youth will get bail, and he has enclosed a bond. He notes that the prisoners almost killed Wheeler yesterday, and six of the criminals escaped, but were all retaken. The locks in their door, which opens into the debtors ward, were picked by some of the debtors. When the old man was going in, they shoved open the door and made a rush on him, beating him unmercifully with sticks. He was able to defend himself and delayed them in their progress until the alarm was raised and they were eventually secured. He notes that the debtors would not assist Wheeler. He also states that Morrison is at present boarding with Mr. H. Thompson, July 18, 1837. Postmarked Niagara U.C. 18 July 1837 (date handwritten).en_US
