“Here I came to finish my journey, troubled by the injustice of which I was a victim.”

– Donald Morrison

With this whole misadventure, I became an outlaw despite myself. On my tomb stone, you will find the date of the beginning of my incarceration, the day my freedom was taken away. I was pardoned and freed on June 19th, 1894 following a petition submitted to the Minister of Justice, the Honorable Sir John Sparrow David Thompson, but 4 hours later, I died at Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal, following a pulmonary illness called consumption.
