"Because the unloaders took John M'Cracken's cart first, Kilpatrick took offense and a fight ensued. Kilpatrick beat M'Cracken with a slat and caused his death" - McDade. "Brown argues here for a new trial, on the grounds that proof of premeditation was lacking, and that Kilpatrick had been drinking. It is not clear from this document whether or not a new trial was granted" - Cohen. COHEN 12770. McDADE 555.
