THE END OF THE ROPE IN SCOTLAND. DAY 10 August1 1963

331/63. Henry John Burnett, Capital Murder. Death

Extracts from Special Watch Occurance Book.

1.8.1963 Visit from Father and Sister, talked about Margaret (Mrs Guyan). It appears she had wrote a letter to his mother saying that she had no heart called his sisters whores.  Had an argument with his sister, he broke down, went upstairs and had a good cry.  After a considerable amount of reasoning with him he came back to visit.  I allowed him to smoke, it settled him a good bit.  Visit carried on quite normal and conversation changed to his appeal and the petition, seems to think he has more chance with the petition if he does not appeal.  Remarked that if he got a reprieve he would do his time the correct way and authorities would never know he was in jail.
