Stanland, who declared that "this petition was given due consideration by us and we feel that clemency at this time should not be granted to Walker." Following is the petition which the children of the slain sheriff sent to Governor Ehringhaus: "New Britain, Connecticut, June 3rd, 1935. "To His Excellency, J. C. B.
