George W. Johnston to Thomas E. Bramlette
The negro woman Caroline now under sentence for poisoning the child of Mr Levy; was Examined in the city ^court^ & she was held over to answer, the Testimony showing probable cause to suspect her guilty- I was not present at the final Trial & did not hear the Testimony given to the Jury. but from the Statement of the Rev. Mr McKee, of the Jailor & Several others who heard the Trial & have had an opportunity to converse with Caroline since she has been sentenced, I have become satisfied that there is to say the least great doubt of her Guilt; and that her case presents strong grounds for Executive Interference.
I. am Dr sir
Geo. W. Johnston.
