<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="16790605005"/>party that set him on, &c. But his present Account being neither very consistent with it self, nor agreeable to his former examinations, gave reason to suspect he had been tampered with, and did not fully discover the real truths; so that after much patience and pains, the Court ordered him for the then present, to a farther Examination more private, thereby if possible to fist out the bottom of the business.</p> </div1>
