Cause of death
Bosavern is believed to have been mistakenly identified, although he was present at the time of the murder. Penlez was the subject of a 55-page treatise by Fielding entitled "The Case of the Unfortunate Bosavern Penlez" that year. Penlez was given a proper burial after a last-minute attempt to save him failed.
