Thomas Gurney , was Indicted for a Riot and Rescous committed at the Cross-Keys in Arundel-street , and Rescuing one Robert Webb , and Samuel Moore Prisoners, who were brought out of Somersetshire, by virtue of their Habeas Corpus's, by one Richard Fox . It appeared that there was a Letter sent to this Gurney to the Clubb, at the Rising-Sun in Water-Lane; in which was, That a Friend of his desired the Assistance of 8 men for a Friend that was in trouble. Some of White-Friars men accordingly went to Rescue him from the Rose at Knights-bridge; but missed of their design, and heard that they were

in Arundel-street; [Text unreadable in original.] and carried them to the Temple-stairs, and got them in Boats, and carried them to Dorset-stairs, and from thence to Gurneys House in White-Fryers, they pursuing them there, the Fryers-men beat them, and knockt them down. The Trial lasted long; and the Jury having considered the matter, found him Guilty .

[Fine. See summary.]

[Provide sureties for good behaviour. See summary.]
