The Case of Oscar Slater (2 september 1912)
From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia
The Case of Oscar Slater
Sir, — Since the publication of my brochure on the Oscar Slater case ten days ago I have received numerous letters from correspondents all over the country urging me to use any influence I have in getting the authorities to reconsider the trial.
I trust, therefore, that by pointing out to the British public the possibility and probability of a miscarriage of justice having been perpetrated by the conviction of the man Slater for the murder of Miss Gilchrist I have awakened a more general interest in the case, and, if the British public agree with my views, it is for them to see that the case is reopened.
