Annual Register... for the Year 1771, 520pp., covers loose, interior VG. Four page report, ".Some Account of the Trial of the Jews, Levi Weil , A flier Weil, Marcus Hartogh , ctherwife AJheburg, Jacob Lazarus , otherwise Hyam Drefden , otherwise Hyam Lazarus , Solomon Porter , otherwisw Mojes , Lazarus Harry , and Abraham Linevil ( not yet taken) indicted for the wilful Murder of Joseph Slew , Servant of Mrs . Hutchins of Chese ; and tried at the Old Bailey , on Friday the 6th of December. ...." This daring murder, which long roused the public indignation against the whole Jewish people, happened in the house of Mrs. Hutchins. In June, 1771, they knocked at the door, which was opened by a female servant, when immediately eight Jews entered the house. They then proceeded to rob the home and brutalize and murder one of the servants. From a second source we learn "As their execution was to take place on the Monday following, one of the rabbis went to them in the press-yard of Newgate and delivered to each of them a Hebrew book; but declined attending them to the place of death, nor even prayed with them at the time of his visit. They were attended to Tyburn, the place of execution, by immense crowds of people, who were anxious to witness the exit of wretches whose crimes had been so much the object of public notice. Having prayed together, and sung a hymn in the Hebrew language, they were launched into eternity, on the 9th of December, 1771."
