412

I have dedicated myself to proving the prisoner innocent.  A Reverend Trask seems intent on finding her guilty of witchcraft.  We went in pursuit of a book, allegedly from the future, that could hold the key to her innocence.  I doubt my actions will be ones I might cite on my examination for the bar, but they are right.  I’ve now hidden the book in my desk, the one place I’m sure Trask will never look.

With so many determined to accuse her of such a medieval crime, I doubt that this book will help, but can any course be ruled out?

Trask’s subsequent visit and his expression upon seeing Victoria was a small victory for common sense.  We need each one possible.

In the balance, I may be found guilty of perjury.  This is not cards, Bradford, old boy.  This is chess.
