'I did leave London on that said horse, impressed with the idea that I was riding to deathless fame. My intention was to ride to York and, after I had reached my destination, to return home and trust in God to be received into the arms of my family again, they knowing the affliction under which I labour. I further declare that I had no control whatsoever over my mind, nor was it in my power to deter myself from committing this rash act. I was dragged on by an irresistible fate to achieve the purpose settled in my mind and I declare on my oath that I would rather have sacrificed my earthly existence than given up the idea stamped so firmly on my brain; and now I would rather die the death of a mad dog than that it should have occurred.'
'Horace Wright, the young man who is known as "the Modern Dick Turpin", pleaded guilty at the Central Criminal Court to a charge of stealing £30 from Mr Cropper, his employer, and was sentenced to eighteen months' imprisonment. His friends suggested that he was insane but the Governor of Newgate said that the prisoner had been under the observation of the surgeon, who did not consider him to be of unsound mind; and the Deputy Chief Constable of Cambridgeshire, who had the prisoner in his custody for nine months in 1869, said he thought the young man very stupid but nothing more. Once or twice during his confinement in gaol he attempted to commit suicide, but whether he meant to do it the witness added he could not say.'
'THE MEDICAL QUACK MAD - Yesterday afternoon Messrs R F Howard and Mr J M Harcourt Js.P. attended at the Sandhurst gaol, at the request of the authorities, for the purpose of inquiring into the medical condition of a prisoner named Horace Wright, otherwise known as "Dr" Wright who, it will be remembered, was committed for trial some weeks back for having committed an indecent assault on a little girl and also for uttering valueless cheques. Wright's conduct during the time he has been in gaol has been most peculiar and, as stated above, the governor of the gaol decided upon taking steps to ascertain if he was insane or not. Drs. O Penfold and J M'Intyre Eadie deposed that they had examined the prisoner and found him to be a raving lunatic. On their certificates, the magistrates ordered the removal of the prisoner to the Kew Lunatic Asylum.'
'WRIGHT - On the 10th inst., Horace, the beloved husband of Rose Wright, youngest son of John Wright M.D., M.R.C.S. and nephew of Samuel Wright M.D., D.C.L, LL.D., F.R.S., late of Nottingham, England, aged 43 years. "Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?" - Rom., 8-35. Home papers please copy.'
