This day the Wife of Mr. John Gibbons , Presented a Petition to the Court purporting that seeing her Husband was committed Prisoner to the Gate-House for High-Treason, and had continued there a considerable time to the great prejudice of his Family, he Humbly besought the Honourable Bench that he might be Tryed or Bailed, but he being committed before the last Sessions, and not taking the benefit thereof to make his Prayer, It was the opinion of the Court that he had over-stayed the benefit of the Act, and that it lay not in their Power to grant his Request.
