(p.188-190) “The End of William Cain.” Miller was the defense lawyer for William Cain who killed Andy Watson for which Cain was hung Aug. 3rd 1863. “Lawyer Miller waxed eloquent in pleading his clent’s case . The matter was not one of cold-blooded murder, he said, but an unfortunate, tragic case of irresistible impulse. It had been brought about by the deceased’s total lack of regard for the defendant’s impassioned pleas to be paid in real and proper money [Greenbacks –backed only by bonds not convertible into gold until 1897] for the strenuous, productive work performed by the loyal uncomplaining, hardworking defendant. It was, surely a case of murder but a circumstance of passion, a matter of a simple man wishing to be honorably and rightly paid for the only thing of value he possessed, his bodily labor. It was a case of quid pro quo—something for something…Miller noted ‘The rulings of the Court in this case was severe throughout.’”
