THe Grand Jury for the City of London, did this Sessions bring a Presentment into Court against several Abuses and Misdemeanors committed in the said City, to the Displeasure of Almighty God, and the Dishonour of the same.

First, Against Ale-houses and Taverns, who suffer lewd and evil-disposed Persons, to fit Tipling and Drinking on the Lords Day.

Secondly, Against all such who lay Unnecessary and Impertinent Wagers, there being several Offices kept about the Town to encourage Persons so to do.

Thirdly, Against all Lotteries and Gaming-houses, especially against the Royal-Oak Lottery, it being of bad Consequence to the Youth, and Apprentices of the City.

Fourthly, Against all Persons who entertain such Persons who pick up each other in the Streets.

To this the Court was pleased to Answer, That they had made a very Grave and Sober Presentment; and Order'd that Processes should be made out against several particular Houses in and about the City, in order to the Suppression of all such Offenders; it being of very evil Example, and of great Mischief to the Interest of all Men.

The Tryals being over, the Court proceeded to give Sentence as followeth.

Punishment: No Punishment > pardon

NOtwithstanding the great Indulgence that hath been shewed to several great and wicked Offenders, who have (since the Corronation of our most Gracious King and Queen that now is) been Committed to Newgate for their Enormous and Mischievous Faults; yet how many are there (that tho their Eyes are open) do blind themselves, and will not see into the Abyss and Depth of that Misery wherein they involve themselves, by reason of their perverse and unreformable Lives? But will still go on in the pursuit of their premeditated and base Designs, to the great Loss and Destruction (not only) of honest Mens Rights but to the utter Ruin (many times) of their own Souls and Bodies; yet for all this, and on purpose to shew Mercy, and to extend Their Royal Favour and Bounty, the King and Queen did at the latter end of this Session, Grant a Pardon to those Persons whose Names follow, who all pleaded the same on their Knees in open Court.
