331/63. Henry John Burnett, Capital Murder. Death
Extracts from Special Watch Occurance Book.
3.8.1963 Visit from Sister and Brother in Law. Conversation was of family matters and how his brother in law was doing at sea. Went on to say why he did not Appeal, said he just didn’t want to Appeal, but would rather wait for the results of his petition.
I asked him for his reasons for not appealing, he said, “This way there is only one in trouble, it’s the better way.”

3.8.1963 Prisoner listened to wireless and spoke of the different recording stars. He was quite cheerful and played dominos till 1.30am. He then asked to write a letter to Mrs Guyan. When he finished writing he said, I will not take any more visits from anyone after next Friday.
Also spoke about his appeal period being finished on Tuesday and about working in a Quarry for a period and the times he had with some of the chaps he worked with.
