Upton Sinclair Lied

In case I ever have to teach Boston by Sinclair.

Sinclair was told by their attorney that the pair was guilty and that he had purchased alibis for them. Letter tells info.

Sinclair was afraid to write the truth in his book because
1. His wife was afraid he’d be murdered.
2. His readers expected them to be innocent. 90% of his readers were foreign liberals.

But he believed, and others stated, that the guys were guilty.
