The wretched man Fletcher whose downward course may be traced from being a spoilt child, was sent to Warwick for a wicked assault on a poor imbecile girl (Churchill). Son of Mrs Fletcher of Haselor Hall, brought up in every luxury, I remember him a handsome man in hoslet and well mounted; extravagance brought him to ruin; drunkeness and every evil followed; till degraded and a beggar he is a warning both to Mothers and sons; Let all who hae a good mother rejoice and be thankful, for her wisdom under God may save them.
