To which she reply'd, That as she was sitting upon the Close-stool something stopp'd from her, that thereupon she went and found the Child in the Close-stool-pan, and the Pan was pretty full of Urine, &c. She did believe the Child might be born alive; and, that the Head of it being under what was in the Pan was sufficient to suffocate it. Mrs. Glede depos'd, That she went up with Mrs. Grey, and did see the Child in the Close-stool-pan. She believes it was at its full Time; it was a fine Child, the Hands were shut when its was taken out, and there appear'd no Marks of Violence. The Child's Head lay downwards, and there was Water sufficient to strangle it. Another Evidence depos'd, She took it out of the Pan, it was at its full Growth, but she did believe it might be Still-Born. These Evidences depos'd, That they perceiving

That the second Birth was with it, and she separated it from it. The Prisoner pleaded, That she was ill, and was in a Fit when she was deliver'd, and had not her Senses; and, that she had made Provision for the Child; and call'd one of the Evidences for the King to prove it; who did depose, That she had five or six Months before, seen several Things proper for a Child.
