To the Commissioner of Police

Dear Sir,

I hope you will hang Williams in a place where all the school boys of Connors school can have a good view of him. I vote that each boy be allowed to stick a ladies hatpin in his thigh or kerosene him and set fire to him. I think our policemen deserve great praise for bringing the scoundrel to bay. I hope you will give them plenty of money for doing such good work.

Yours truly,
Harry Jones (aged 14)
Victorian Public Record Series 937, Unit 511 †
