Execution broadside printed with an account of the crimes, trial and execution of the prisoners Richard Crick and Josiah Nathan, convicted of burglary and Richard Gifford found guilty of impersonating William Green and, as a result of this deception, being able to obtain money. The broadside blames Gifford's demise on the bad influence of a woman and concludes with a letter of repentance written by the prisoner the day before his execution. Printed by Thomas Birt the broadside includes a generic woodcut engraving of the crowd before the gallows.
