    "Members of the Jury, this is an important case. It is important to the government. It's important to the defendants, but most important, it's important to the State of Mississippi. What I say, what the other lawyers say here today, what the Court says about the law will soon be forgotten, but what you twelve people do here today will long be remembered. Does not everyone see and understand that it was a matter of absolute necessity that you twelve people of Mississippi be asked to sit as jurors and judge this case? These defendants will stand before you on the record in this case and they will beg of you for indulgence. In effect they will beg of you for indulgence. In effect they will say as Gloucester said of old as he stood over the body of his slain king, he begged of the queen "say I slew him not." The queen replied then say they were not slain, but they are dead (Note: this is a reference to a scene in Shakespeare's The Life and Death of Richard the Third). If you find that these men or that each of them is not guilty of this conspiracy it would be as true to say that there was no night time release from jail by Cecil Price, there were no white knights, there are no young men dead, there was no murder. If you find that these men are not guilty you will declare the law of Neshoba County to be the law of the State of Mississippi."

    "Mitglieder der Jury, ist dies ein wichtiger Fall. Es ist wichtig, an die Regierung. Es ist wichtig, den Angeklagten, aber am wichtigsten ist, ist es wichtig, den Staat Mississippi. Was ich sage, was die anderen Anwälte sagen, hier und heute, was Der Gerichtshof sagt über das Gesetz wird bald vergessen sein, aber was Sie zwölf Menschen tun heute hier wird lange in Erinnerung bleiben. Hat nicht jeder sehen und zu verstehen, dass es eine Frage der absoluten Notwendigkeit, die Sie zwölf Menschen in Mississippi aufgefordert, als Juroren zu sitzen und richten diesen Fall? Die Angeklagten werden, bevor Sie auf der Platte in diesem Fall stehen und sie werden Sie bitten um Nachsicht. In der Tat werden sie Sie bitten um Nachsicht. In der Tat werden sie sagen, wie Gloucester, sagte der alte, als er über stand der Körper seines erschlagen König, bat er der Königin ", sage ich tötete ihn nicht.« Die Königin antwortete dann sagen, dass sie nicht getötet wurden, aber sie sind tot (Hinweis: Dies ist ein Verweis auf eine Szene in Shakespeares Leben und Tod von Richard III.) Wenn Sie feststellen, dass diese Männer oder dass jeder von ihnen nicht schuldig der Verschwörung, es wäre so richtig, zu sagen, dass es keine Nachtzeit Entlassung aus dem Gefängnis von Cecil Price sein, gab es keine weißen Ritter, gibt sind keine jungen Männer tot, es gab keinen Mord. Wenn Sie feststellen, dass diese Männer nicht schuldig werdet ihr das Gesetz der Neshoba County erklären, das Gesetz des Staates Mississippi sein. "
