John Austin , and William Holdman , Two Soldier s, were Indicted for a Misdemeanor, for Cursing the King, and for Assaulting Hannah Pitham. The Evidence declared that there happened to be some Discourse about the French King; and they declared that he was the greatest Monarch in the whole World; and said, God Damn King William, and all that love him, for that they never had a penny of King William's Money, but King James's . The Fact was very fully proved against them; yet they aledged that they were in Drink; but it did not avail them, the Jury found them both Guilty of the said Misdemeanor.
