Letter Fae the Tolbooth     by: Stuart, Sara

Dear Ma,
How are ye doin? I'm affa disappointed an I'm sorry if I let ye doon. It's horrid doon 'ere, the smell is awfu, as it lingers doon the cells in the Tolbooth. The treatment is diabolical an I dinna think most folk deserve tae be ere.
I wid like tae say everything I hate in this letter as this might be my last letter I write to you cause o my hangin on Sunday at three. I wish nothing had ever happend cause it brocht me such trouble. I'm sorry again, but I must sign off here.

Love ye always

Your son
