545, 546. (M.) Lucy May was indicted for stealing two sheets, value 10 d. a linen table cloth, value 10 d. a linen napkin, value 6 d. and two clouts , the propetty of John Turner ; and Rebecca, wife of Francis Parish , for receiving the same, well knowing them to have been stolen , October 6 . *

John Turner . I had suspicion of loosing linen out of my house, upon which I charged an officer with my servant, Lucy May ; after which there were some things found, but I cannot positively swear to them, there being no marks upon them.

Robert Needham . I am a pawnbroker; the prisoner Parish pledged these things with me; (producing linen as mentioned in the indictment) she said they were her own.

Both Acquitted .
