Charles Darnay, the man acquitted of treason charges just nine years ago, has made the risky decision to return to France to come to the aid of a family friend. Arrested immediately, Darnay has been imprisoned for a year, and is still awaiting trial. His attempt to rescue Gabelle, a servant to his infamous uncle's estate, from French prison has lead to these consequences. The Globe will update on the case when more news is received.
Carton Dies Gallantly
Sydney Carton, the esquire with the infamous private lifestyle that readers may remember from Charles Darnay's sensationalist trial in 1780, has died. After changing places with Darnay, the man whom he was able to free from murder charges because of his remarkable resemblance to the esquire, Carton was executed by guillotine in Darnay's stead. Darnay was sentenced on charges influenced by personal vendettas, which were later made public. Carton has redeemed himself, in the opinion of this reporter.
