William Dodd was an English Anglican clergyman and a man of letters. He lived extravagantly, committed forgery in an effort to clear his debts, and was caught and convicted. Despite a public campaign for a Royal pardon, in which he received the assistance of Samuel Johnson, he was hanged at Tyburn for forgery. He composed the 'Thoughts in Prison' while in Newgate Prison between his conviction and execution.
