      Its also worth noting that Bury although not a big man had supposedly had powerfully built arms and shoulders.

        Thought I’d mention that a letter written by James Berry shortly after his execution of William Bury has come up for auction:

        There’s no JTR talk from Berry in the letter, but of interest is his suggestion that Bury was a strong man, and also of interest is his description of Bury as a man of unusual nerve.

        • According to The Courier, the letter went for £1,300, about two or three times what was estimated.
