<p>This being over-ruled, Mr. Sheriff Bethel stood up and acquainted the Court, That he had lately received an Information, that some persons had a Design aginst his Life, and had offered to lay Wagers of accomplishing the Design by Christmas next, and desired that he might wait upon the Right Honourable the Lord Chief Justice, with his Information, but his Lordship was pleased to answer, That he would not admit of any such thing in private, for what he did in that nature must be done in open Court, directing him to attend upon Mr. Attorney General with the same.</p> </div1>
