Oliver Twist - 8th helping
Just in case you dont know the story. Oliver is arrested for a theft he did not commit. Mr Brownlow is the victim. He is a kind old gentleman and nervous that he may have the wrong theif. The magistrate is used to dealing with low common ignorant and uneducated criminals and when he comes across Mr Brownlow his authority comes into question and he is most put out by Mr Brownlows attitude. Justice was rarely fair in those days and confusion in the courts meant that many innocent people were thrown in prison. Many of them trying to survive by stealing a loaf of bread. This is just a snippet of the book I am writing called, Oliver Twist in Rhyme.Pays one point and 2 member cents.
