Elizabeth Knot . The 22d of July there were three men stopped me in the back lane, over-against St. George's church in the east , about a quarter of an hour after 10 o'clock at night. Robinson seised Henry Thompson , and I was running away, and one Edward Ward said, D - n you, madam , you are not gone, and flung me against a bank. Cross the black came up to me; then Robinson called out help, saying, the son of a bitch would be gone. Cross run back, and struck Thompson several blows, and took his hat and wig and ran away; at the same time the other took six pence half-penny out of my pocket; then they run away and Thompson came to me with a stick in his hand which he took from the black. It was a very moonlight night, and we were within three or four yards of each other. The prisoners owned the fact before the justice.
Both guilty , Death .
