snell case 2 - A JURY Photo by Lowe. These are the twelve...
A JURY Photo by Lowe. These are the twelve men-who tried to decide according to the evidence if Col. Thomas Snell was insane when he made his now famous will. The photograph was taken just after the lawyers had closed their arguments and . the case was given the Jury Saturday. The men were then in. good spirits as they' retired to consider a verdict. After two days of wrangling it would have been a hard matter to get the twelve men to stand together and look pleasant, for a good deal of bitterness had developed in their arguments and the men were anxious to get away from each other. The photograph is by Lowe, the Clinton photographer. THAT COULD NOT AGREE
