Summary
"Bosavern Penlez was a British sailor caught up in three days of riots which followed an unpleasant incident in a London brothel. He was convicted both of rioting and of stealing a bundle of linen, and sentenced to death; a public ourcry arose at the severity of the sentence, but to no avail, and Penlez was duly executed."
