This month we continue the drama surrounding fervent Irish patriot Dr. Patrick Cronin who was last seen climbing into a horse-drawn rig in Chicago. Dr. Cronin was a judge at the American Clan-na-Gael (United Irish Brotherhood) trial of Alexander Sullivan, Michael Boland and Dennis Feeley, accused of stealing $250,000 of the Brotherhood’s funds. This Must Remain A Secret, this month’s gripping instalment of A Story Of Irish Betrayal.
To her rural Connecticut neighbours the old recluse was simply known as “the cat woman” due to the unaccountable number of felines around her tumbledown shack. The woman was, in fact, Mrs. Florence Maybrick, convicted of murdering her husband by poisoning him with arsenic. Spared the gallows, this American wife of a Liverpool businessman was considered innocent by many and public unease about the fairness of her trial helped bring about reforms in English criminal law. We conclude our serialisation of My Fifteen Lost Years with Mrs. Maybrick’s own account of her ordeal.
