Short, sad story

One sentence in a newspaper, dated 10 May 1764, tells a sad tale with several victims.
Ambrose Old, who, a few days ago, was taken up and committed to the Round-house at Deptford, for forging several sailors wills, took a dose of poison while he continued in the cage there, and died within a few hours after.
