   Missionary Magazine (Newspaper) - July 19, 1813, London, Middlesex                                THE MISSIONARY MAGAZINE. 3ftllg 19, 1813. Account of John Langhorne, executed for Forgery cn the 25th February, 1813. �>ROM TH� CHRISTIAN OBSERVIR,]] John Langhorne, the subject of this communication, was born of respectable parents, in a remote county in the north: his education was decent; and at about the age of 17, he ,was sent out to the West Indies. Here, after some stay, he caught the yellow fever; and while under its debilitating effects, uncertain what the event might be, his conscience told him he was unfit to appeal before a holy God.- It pleased God, however, to restore him at this time, and he returned to England for the purpose of establishing his health. Shortly after, he sailed again for the West Indies; and acquitted himself so much, to the satisfaction of his employers, by his industry and vigilance, that he obtained the management of two or three estates, and was evidently rising in the world beyond his expectations. But he entered into money transactions improvidently, and on his return to England found he had such pecuniary claims to satisfy, as deprived him nearly of his all. His habits of life thus far had by no means fitted him for a quiet acquiescence in this reverse of condition. He assumed an appearance which he could ill support; and after being guilty of one act of'gross cruelty and deception, which from delicacy to the survivors it is not expedient to particularise, his extravagance brought him to poverty, and he enlisted in the army.
