    I would love to have a copy of the Preliminary Hearings to compare what was said at the Inquest and Trial testimony.

    I have begun consulting your blog, and see your offer of a copy of the transcript of the Lizzie Borden preliminary (probable-cause) hearing. I would like to take you up on that generous offer. I have spoken here on Cape Cod on the Webster/Parkman and Sacco and Vanzetti cases, and will be presenting a talk on Lizzie Borden on a couple of occasions coming up. . . .

    Thank you for your kindness in this matter.

      I think I sent it twice – my mailer was hic-cupping. Let me know you got it okay.

        Thanks ahead of time for sending the transcript. I’m interested in her childhood in particular and it’s comparability to current sociopathic youth.

    I am a new blogger and hope to be an author of a published work in the future regarding the Borden murders. I have always been interested in true crime but the Borden murders fascinate me the most. I would like a copy of the transcript to use in my research for my posts. Thank you in advance.

    Some years ago I printed your Preliminary Hearing, but now, because of a lack of space, I woul like to have it recorded in my computer. Why? I do not know. I am fond of Lizzie. She is in my heart.
    Many thank and Best regards,

    I appreciate your efforts in providing this transcript. I recently finished reading the full trial transcript from the summer of 1893. I would like to compare the prelim to see how certain witnesses’ stories changed. I have a new book coming out this year on the “tragedy.”
    Thank you so much.

    When I was 9 I watched Legend of Lizzie Borden and have never seen it many times since. That’s how it started but I’ve done lots of research since. I would very much appreciate your Preliminary Hearing. Very nice thing to do.

    When I was a teenager I watched Legend of Lizzie on a VHS tape on a sleepover. It really creeped us girls out and I wanted to learn more about what happened to her. I have been reading books ever since. I have been watching documentaries ever since. Last year I read the Witness Statements. I would very much like to have the Preliminary Hearing. Thank you, Ms. Musselman.

    I like to look up photos of (possibly) real characters and read about them as I watch films. I was watching the new Lizzie Borden stories on Netflix, did the searches and followed links around. I know you flamed the series, but really, don’t we all know it’s fiction with little nuggets of possible truth sprinkled about?

    Why are the theories about incest, or being discovered self-pleasuring, or any other exotic motives for the murders – why are these stories advanced lately (ie the 90’s onward) by self-identified experts more legitimate than the outright fictions of the new series? Where’s the foundation?? Even back in her time, how does anyone know the prurient stuff wasn’t just creepy gossip?

    Sure, this rotten stuff happened in life, but where’s the proof it happened in Lizbeth Borden’s life? So, it’s better to read the source material, not just the summaries, just can’t always get to them. I still have to finish reading your posts, maybe you’ve already debunked this stuff, but I thank you.

    Sorry if I’ve offended anyone by scoffing at the more lurid theories.

    Hi! Your site is one of a kind!! =) I lived in Fall River briefly when I went to visit a friend who moved there from CT. and I ended up staying a while. We were walking distance from Lizzie’s house, and her church was across the street from where we were staying. However I’ve been fascinated by her since childhood. Growing up in New England, my mother told me the tale and even as a young’un, the macabre had a hold on me. I feel for Lizzie and feel a connection with her. I would very much like to have a preliminary. Thank you!!

    I am wondering if you have a transcript that would be good for a monologue for my college class. I have been searching everywhere to try and find a monologue transcript where I am lizzie.

    I have a book coming out with a different take on Lizzie, yes, it’s Lizzie Borden, Zombie Hunter. You knew it would come to that, right?😉

      OMG. No, I’m not the least bit surprised. If it’s any good, you just might get offers to buy the rights.

    Hello, I have been reading and researching on Lizzie for about 20 years now. As a Victorian and women’s history buff, her story was fascinating to me and it sparked my current career as a professional speaker and consultant on the Victorian era. I would very much like a copy of the preliminary hearing transcript. . have enjoyed your blog for some time now. Many thanks for your scholarship on Lizzie! Laura Loew, lostinthepast

    I would love a copy of this! Went to Fall River over the summer for a stay in a lighthouse and then took a tour of the house where the murders were. Now I am taking a forensic Science class and am writing my paper on Lizzy’s case! PLEASE, send me a copy of the transcript! Thank you!

    I have always been fascinated with this crime, I am not really sure why. But now that I work at TSH I am even more interested in figures who “stayed” here.

    I have had an interest in the case since I did a persuasive essay over the case and would like to read further into the case. I want to see what the specific points made are and inquire on my own about the verdict.
