It further appeared, that one Harvey, whom one of the Witnesses was so hardy as to call the Bawd of the House, said, they would live well with the Money.</p>
<p>She said in her Defence, That the Prisoner wanted to lie with her, and she refusing him, he began to Curse and Swear at her, and to avoid his Insults she got out of the Window; but this Artifice had but little Effect, for it appear'd she could not speak his Language (French) nor could he speak English.
