Your money, or your life !

Here’s a gruesome historical fact for the Easter weekend. In 1819, Peter Rainer stopped off at The Tumbledown Dick and robbed the carriage (at gun point) that was transporting him saying,
Deliver your money or I will have your life.”

He was found guilt by a jury in Middlesex and sentenced to death for robbery aged only 19.
