So ingenious was this plan of campaign that the police at first thought that Hume
must be a spy. But they found out that the story was a simple one of imposture,
and he was bound over to come up for judgment after being kept in prison for
some time under medical treatment. While he was jailed he wrote to Mrs. Clare,
who sent him sweets and food. But when he came out he did not go to see her.
He cut himself off from his second chance of a contented home life because it

But when these gases are forced to pass through the interstices of powder, the
resistance offered will considerably diminish the velocity of their expansion : it is
found to vary with the form and size of the grains ; and may be supposed to be
reduced to 33 feet per second. The velocity of combustion, as before stated, is
only .48 inch per second. Although the velocity of inflammation of a train of
powder can afford but an imperfect idea of this velocity in a gun, it may be
interesting to study it.

murder of a Mr Setty, and the discovery of his body off the Essex coast, 'some
distance north of the Thames estuary'. The final essay in A Train of Powder,
treating the case of ...

She titles her report on a lynching trial “Opera in Greenville,” and she remarks
that two of the Nuremberg trials “took off and left the earth, becoming
phantasmagoric, chapters out of The Mysteries of Udolpho, not trials at all” (A
Train of Powder, 239). She describes the main Nuremburg trial also as “a
performance” (A Train of Powder, 247). In “Mr. Setty and Mr. Hume,” she claims
this murder trial in Britain operates as a kind of “morality play” (A Train of Powder,
202). 61. Mark Sanders ...
