Mary Richardson , of St. Ann's Westminster , was indicted for stealing a Holland Smock, value 4 s. and an Apron, value 4 s. the Goods of Mary Hitchcock ; it appeared by the Evidence of the Prosecutor, who swore to the Goods, and by Elizabeth Ager , who took the Prisoner with them, that she was guilty of the Indictment, and indeed she had nothing to say in her Defence, but that the Devil bid her do it; but her being prompted on by an old Acquaintance, was not a sufficient Excuse to satisfy the Jury, for they found her guilty to the Value of 10 d.
