NOtwithstanding the great Indulgence that hath been shewed to several great and wicked Offenders, who have (since the Corronation of our most Gracious King and Queen that now is) been Committed to Newgate for their Enormous and Mischievous Faults; yet how many are there (that tho their Eyes are open) do blind themselves, and will not see into the Abyss and Depth of that Misery wherein they involve themselves, by reason of their perverse and unreformable Lives? But will still go on in the pursuit of their premeditated and base Designs, to the great Loss and Destruction (not only) of honest Mens Rights but to the utter Ruin (many times) of their own Souls and Bodies; yet for all this, and on purpose to shew Mercy, and to extend Their Royal Favour and Bounty, the King and Queen did at the latter end of this Session, Grant a Pardon to those Persons whose Names follow, who all pleaded the same on their Knees in open Court.

After they had all kneeled down, the Pardon was read, and the Convicts were all advised to take due warning by such and so great Clemency, that they did lead better Lives for the future, at which they seemed to be much affected some of them; and then they were all remanded to the Goal.
