One Thomas Hudson was found Guilty of High-Treason for Clipping of money having often offered pieces notably circumcised at an Ale house, and desired to buy Ginnies, offered 22s. d a piece, yet confessed he must change them again for Silver, and would rather give some advantage for broad Silver, particularly going into the Yard one day, and staying long there, a Woman belonging to the house, went to look after him, and peping in at the House of Office, saw him at work, a Clipping of Shillings, with a Pair of Sizzars, and then rubbing them over with a stone &c. He had also declared that he could take off 3d. from a Shilling, and yet it should go never the worse. He endeavoured to suggest, that there was some malice in one of the evidence against him, but could not make it out, and so was convicted .
