Mary Budley was Indicted of a Misdemeanor, for unlawfully getting Dyes for the Coining of False Guinea's . It appeared that she did come to the Harts-horns Inn in Barnet , and did desire to be shew'd a Room, and to bring her some drink. Then she shewed them a Note for the things, and the Hostler went into the Stable, and brought them to her, and she had him to keep them for her till the morning, which he did. Then she said she did think they were not for any good use, would throw them away; and in the morning, pursuing her Journey, she threw them into a Hedge. Being taken, and carried before a Justice, she did confess where she threw them. The Jury acquitted her.
