Today we were in trial here in England in order to try to defend Charles Darnay from charges of treason. I tried to stay quiet and take it all in during the trial, and I noticed many things pertinent to the trial. The first thing I noticed as I saw Charles was that he and I were physically similar, and this unusual fact helped to save him, but I will get to that a little later. I was working on the side of defense with my boss Mr. Stryver, whom I respect greatly. The trial began with the prosecution calling witnesses. The first person they called was John Barsad, who swore in and then tried to make Charles seem like a bad guy. The prosecution next called Roger Cly, a friend of Barsad’s who had been a servant of Charles for four years.
