2 I was put in irons, brought to trial again, and sent for life.
3 The trial came on at once, and, when he was put to the bar, he was seated in a chair.
4 He was committed to take his trial at the next Sessions, which would come on in a month.
5 He lay in prison very ill, during the whole interval between his committal for trial and the coming round of the Sessions.

12 He who had been presented in the worst light at his trial, who had since broken prison and had been tried again, who had returned from transportation under a life sentence, and who had occasioned the death of the man who was the cause of his arrest.
13 The privilege of calling her by her name and hearing her call me by mine became, under the circumstances an aggravation of my trials; and while I think it likely that it almost maddened her other lovers, I know too certainly that it almost maddened me.
