He said not a word.
by Lisa Y. Henderson
CALVIN LYTLE, a free mulatto, sometime since convicted of burglary, was publicly executed at Lexington, N.C., on Friday the 16th. The negro, being a shrewd, intelligent fellow, it was generally expected that he would make a farewell speech or dying confession; but he said not a word publicly as to his guilt or innocence.
