Roylsden #370

It was such an extreme case, they said. Well, to saddle up quick, the whole thing was reviewed and someone somewhere decided that prison wasn't the answer, either for her or for medical research. She was committed to the care of one of them shiny newbuckled hospitals up New York state. Minister McGinley's case was reviewed, too, and the upshot was he got his sentence cut and by the time the legal business with Lucy McGinley was done, he was free again. He and the boy moved to New York and, as far as I know, never returned to Roylsden.

    Drew, you old softie! Mercy, mercy me! I didn’t have you figured out as a sentimentalist. Ah wuz spectin’ her to take the drop, like what she wuz due!
    But on the other hand... good to see that the quality of mercy is not strain’d. It even droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven down Roylsden way. Very compassionate, Drew.
