Two slaves were aware that highly respected Doctor Fisk had recently
received a large sum of money and determined to steal it. Two days later
they enticed the doctor away from the house by claiming someone was sick.
They murdered him, returned to the house and assaulted his wife, then
murdered his two-year-old son, plundered the house and burned it to the
ground. They were caught and chained to two posts, wood was piled up to
their waists and lit. There was very little left to bury.
Bad men need nothing more to accomplish their ends, than that good men should look on and do nothing.
