Btosy of Family Woes While in
Priaon Brought Pardon
It was a personal appeal from Al
bert T. Patrick, written in hla call
to Sing Sing prison, to Governor Dlx i
of Now York state, tha. finally caused
tbe prison doors to awing open to Pat-
rick last Thanksgiving afternoou. j
The letter was dated Nov. 6. 1912. !
In it Pa'rlck made a strong and earn-
est plea for hla wife and family. He
wrote that his father had died of apo
plexy while he was occupying a dun
geon coll; his mother, then 77 years
old, bad Decode stone deaf. His
daughter, a young girl, had married
and the marriage had turned out bad
ly. She had secured a divorce and
was agalu la fa 'ua ted with a strip
ling, Patrick wrote.
Patrick wrote also that his wife's
fight for his liberty had made seri
ous inroads on her health. His wife
was informed, he wrote, that when
Governor Dlx returned from abroad he
ln'ended to take up the pardon. This
disappointment to Mrs. Patrick was a
sad blow and tt was pointed out that
her life was Imperiled unlets hdr
anxiety was relieved.
"Perhaps I need not tell you how
often we are approached by persons
claiming to have evidence. Influence
or power to sell when we have no
mooey or disposition to buy. Hard
ly a day passes without a fresh at
tempt at this," continued Patrick,
who added that his brother-in-law,
John T. MllUken, because of ill healh
and advancing years and family mis
fortunes, will not be able to continue
the fight as In the past.
The death of his father and the ex
pected dea'h of his aunt are also men
tioned. The plea Is likewise made on
account of his mother, who, be says,
disposed of all of her property to aid
In his defense. Patrick claimed In
bis letter that his enemies had re
sewed a newspaper campaign against
blm and said he feared tha a prema
ture announcement of the renewal of
his application "might '.oad my ene;
dels to bring lnfluenoe to bear upon
the governor which would embarrass
blm to reject." Though he assures
the governor that no reprisal would
follow bis action.
After gorag over the legal conten
tions which he hod made In his previ
ous application he expressed his be
lief that the governor could do no act
of more lasting popularly or public
benefit than to declare his belief In
bis Imiooence. He claimed he did not
harbor any thought of retaliation
against any Individual. In asking for
an "unconditional cominuia'lon" In
stead of a pardon, Patrick said that
It had been held that an acceptance
of a pardon Implied an acknowledg
ment of guilt and would bar proceed
ings to securing a new 'rial or es
tablishing his Innocence.
"I wish to be free to establish ray
Innv.cence In court and afford tbe
state an opportunity to try me agaia
for the murder of Rice," wrote Pat
rick. In his formal application made to
the governor a year before, on which
no action wu taken, Patrick claimed
that Rice died a natural di-ath from
