description <p>On 13 May 1813, Prince Edward<br />Island's Executive Council<br />received four petitions requesting<br />clemency in the case of John<br />Nicholson and his son Samuel, who<br />had been convicted of the murder of<br />John Ross of Flat River. Three of these<br />four petitions survive; two of them are<br />transcribed below. They do not contest<br />the verdict, for the evidence clearly<br />showed that in the course of an<br />escalating argument, fuelled by quantities<br />of rum, the Nicholsons had administered<br />a brutal beating to Ross, resulting<br />in his death.</p>
