The Famous Higgins

The following is from the Gentleman’s Magazine, November 1767, page 559

“The famous Higgins was executed at Carmarthen.  He did not make that resistance he threatened.  He died in a very sullen humour, confessed nothing, but, as he mounted the ladder, he gave the sheriff a letter, which he desired might be sent by express.  A particular account of this extraordinary robber shall be inserted in the supplement.”

I am still looking for the supplement, but a more detailed account is in The London Magazine or Monthly Intelligenser.
