520    n 1799, the murder of a young woman caused a terrific stir
       in the city of New York. The victim was Gulielma Sands who,
       on 22 December, left the boardinghouse where she lived, 
       never to return. Her bruised body was found several days 
       later in the Manhattan Well, a 20-minute carriage ride 
       from her home. The accused was Levi Weeks, a fellow 
       boarder who, Miss Sands had claimed, was to marry her the 
       night she disappeared. Two of the attorneys for the 
       defense were Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton, friends of
       Ezra Weeks, a prominent builder and brother of the 
       accused. The citizens of New York raised an enormous hue 
       and cry over the murder: the body was displayed in the 
       streets before the trial; mobs shoved their way into the 
       courtroom to see the famous lawyers at work and to get a 
       glimpse of the accused; and -- when the verdict was read -
       - few felt that justice had been done. This book tells the
       story of the trial of Levi Weeks and includes the entire 
       transcript of the first American murder trial ever 
       recorded. It is at once a riveting retelling of a true 
       crime in which the voices of early New Yorkers come to us 
       freshly from over two centuries, and a riveting legal and 
       social history of New York in the early years of the 
       Republic.
