Description
"In the eighteenth century, by a curious legal anomaly, women were relieved of all debts on their marriage. Women of fashion who had lost heavily at play used often to go to Newgate and marry a condemned criminal just before the cart started for Tyburn. In a recent romance the criminal thus married was suddenly reprieved, and the lady found herself in an unfortunate position, from which she was ultimately released by the discovery that the man was already married."--printed on border.
