The Cheap Repository Tracts, issued from 1795-1817, were devised by More as an educational alternative to the sensational broadside and chapbook publications so popular among the literate poor. Our tract, an abridgment (likely by More) of Fielding's 1752 Examples of the Interposition of Providence in the Detection and Punishment of Murder, was issued individually until 1797 and also appeared in yearly collections.
