     Dr. Walter A. Maier, a nationally known minister and gospel broadcaster, tells us that about one hundred years ago in Pennsylvania a murderer by the name of George Wilson, who was sentenced to be hanged, was pardoned by President Andrew Jackson. But he was such a hardened criminal that he rejected the pardon, and insisted that it could never be legal and valid until he accepted it. President Jackson consulted the Supreme Court, and Chief Justice John Marshall read the following verdict:

     "It is hardly to be supposed that one under sentence of death would refuse to accept a pardon, but if it is refused, it is no pardon. George Wilson must be hanged."

     And he was hanged, because he could accept or reject the pardon.
