It appeared, That they found in her House all sorts of Tools fitting for that pernicious Trade of false Coyning, the like hath scarcely been heard of; there was a Mill, Fly, Edgers, Crucibles, with all other things, besides Money that was unfinished. The Prisoner said she knew nothing of it; the Fact being so plain, the Jury found her guilty .
