And that when he was taken, he gave very ill Language to those about him, and said that he was not sorry, because he had a design to murder her for about these Six years and acknowledged before the Justice that he struck her with a Knife, which was produced in Court. All which was proved by very concurring Evidence. And that the Prisoner said he knew not what he did being not himself, with several other feigned Stories and Insinuations, how that the Surgeon was not careful of her wounds.
