Trewman's Exeter Flying Post - August 24th 1819.

"Friday last, James Cribb was executed at the Devon High Gaol, pursuant to his sentence at the late Assizes for uttering as true several forged £10 notes, of different provincial banks in the neighbourhood of Exeter. After his condemnation, a sullen indifference pervaded his conduct, but as the period of his punishment drew near, he became more resigned, and is said to have discovered the machinations and haunts of his associates. As he could neither write nor read, it is probable that the ingenious work of altering the notes was performed by an associate not yet in the hands of justice.–The miserable youth repeated the Lord's Prayer, in his last moment, with some hurry and impatience, and dropping the handkerchief quickly at the close of it, was immediately swung off."
