The Authoress of the Odyssey, by Samuel Butler

“There is no single fact to justify a conviction, said Mr. Cock: whereon the Solicitor General replied that he did not rely upon any single fact, but upon a chain of facts, which taken all together left no possible means of escape.”

Times, Leader, Nov 16 1894.

(The prisoner was convicted).
