description "Between nine and ten o'clock on Wednesday night I was in my stable about watering my horse. As I was going from the stable with the horse, I heard three shots. The report came from the Bog. I said to myself, 'There is some fun in the Bog.' . . . I met some men at the corner of Spring street, among whom was James Callaghan. I said to him 'Jim, there is murder in the bog.' " — Testimony of Patrick Hand, Daily Examiner, 16 August 1878, p. 2. "Last night this usually quiet city of ours was startled by the news that one of the most cold blooded and deliberate murders on record had been committed in our midst, and that a young colored boy, who had been a few moments before young and full of spirits playing with his comrades, was, without a moment's warning, hurled into eternity." — Editorial, Patriot, 17 August 1878 (written 15 August).
