The trial of Spencer Cowper for the murder of Sarah Stout (a Quaker woman of unusual independence and wealth) is filled with scandal — rumored adultery, forged love letters, medical curiosities, accusations of suicide and political backstabbing. Cowper and his accused accomplices were acquitted in 1699. The case has never been solved. On February 28 at 4:30 pm the case will be reopened and brought before the court of Public Opinion through an Exhibit in The Sharpless Gallery of Magill Library.
