9 editions published in 1786 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Philosophical work on the excesses of executive justice and harsh punishment composed by English lawyer, reformist politician Samuel Romilly in response to Martin Madan's congratulatory Thoughts on Executive Justice (London, 1785). The "letter from a gentleman abroad" remains anonymous. Dated March 14, 1785, this letter was sent by Benjamin Franklin to Benjamin Vaughan. Franklin, like Romilly, reacts strongly against Madan's support of executive justice, argues against retribution as the primary aim in a judicial system, and is particularly vehement in his opposition to disproportionate punishments, especially where the death penalty is exacted; "is not all punishment inflected beyond the merit of the offence, so much punishment of innocence?"
