Ruth De-Pree , a little Girl , aged about 8 or 9 Years, was tryed for stealing a Silver Taster, and 16 s. in Mony , from one Mark Blackman of Stepney , on the 23d of June last. The Evidence was Blackman's Wife, who swore only circumstantially; How that the Child came for a Quart of Drink, and whilst she was in the Cellar, she might take away the Money; but she could not swear possitively against her. The child denied the Fact, and nothing was found about her neither did she confess it; so it appeared to favour a little of Malice she was acquitted .
