But in her Defence it appear'd plain that she had for a considerable time been under a great trouble of Mind, and in a disponding Condition (for Misfortunes relating to her Family) that she would commit many extravagant Actions, and particularly when she lay In three Months ago, would rise out of her Bed and Dance about the Room; which Disorders of Mind continu'd upon her ever since.

Charles Conly , was Indicted for privately stealing from the Person of Richard Morrice , a silver Watch, Chain and Seal, value 6 l. the Goods of the said Richard Morrice , on the 26th of November last.

The Evidence to the first Indictment depos'd, that on the 14th of December in the Night time a Breach was made in the Prosecutors Brick House, so large that a Man might enter; and the Goods mention'd taken away. It appear'd by the Evidence to the 2d Indictment, that Mr. Moss's House was broken after the manner of the former, and the Goods gone: And searching the Prisoners House upon Suspition, part of the Goods of both the Prosecutors were found; and the Prisoners giving no good Account how they came by them, the Jury found Henry Halson Guilty of both Indictments , but acquitted his Wife.
