A long poem telling of a man who murdered his wife and four children with an axe because he could not find enough
bread to feed them and then tried to commit suicide by cutting his throat. Neighbors, hearing the screams of the dying
family, came in time to capture the murderer and to bind up the slashes he had made in his throat before he bled to death.
He was removed to the Frederick jail and tried to end his life by tearing off the bandages but he was stopped by the jailor
who tied his hands. In a last desperate effort to end his life he beat his brains out on the stone walls of the jail.
This edition of the poem was not printed in Frederick, but was probably copied from the Frederick edition by a Lancaster
or Philadelphia printer.
