By order of the Court, the following three prisoners were also brought up again, William Davis , Edward Crowther , Thomas Chaffey , and set to the bar.

Court. Prisoners, I have sent for you in hopes that the example of the other prisoners, who have been brought up for their sentence, and received the King's pardon, might induce you to spare your own lives; I think it my duty now to state to you, that the Sessions will in a very few moments be closed upon you; when the Sessions is closed you will be ordered for immediate execution; and it will be too late for you to change your mind on this dreadful subject; I have only therefore to recommend to you, once more, to think of your situation, which to you must be sudden destruction, if you do not accept of the terms of the King's pardon; you can have no other chance of saving your lives.

The three prisoners refused, and were ordered to the cells.
