Mary Jones , of St. John Hackney , was indicted for stealing a Sattin Gown and Petticoat, value 40 s. a Sarsenet Hood value 12 d. a Cambrick Handkerchief, value 12 d. and other wearing Apparel , the Goods and Property of Mrs. Elizabeth and Ann Bruce , on the 8th of July last.

Ann Bruce depos'd, That the Prisoner was their Servant , and had taken the Goods privately and gone away with them; and the Sunday following they took her with the Gown upon her Back. She had nothing to say in her Defence, but that she was drunk, and knew not what she did; for which in all likelihood she must go to a Place where they'll keep her sober this seven Years; for the Fact being plain the Jury found her guilty to the Value of 39 s.
