Julius Cesar Taylor was indicted for assaulting John Burgess , with an Intent to commit that horrid and detestable Sin of Sodomy .

He was a second Time indicted for keeping a disorderly House, and entertaining wicked abandon'd Men, who commit sodomitical Practices .

It appear'd by the Depositions of divers Witnesses, That on the 15th of August last, the Prisoner was seen to sit on the Lap of John Burgess , when they committed such indecent and effeminate Actions, as are not to be mentioned: that the Company who resorted to his House, launch'd into such Extravagance, as was scarce ever heard off.

When any Member enter'd into their Society, he was christned by a female Name, and had a Quartern of Geneva thrown in his Face; one was call'd Orange Deb, another Nel Guin , and a third Flying Horse Moll, and that the Prisoner was Accessary in these unnatural Actions. It likewise appear'd by the Depositions of several of the Neighbours, that the Prisoner kept a disorderly House, and he having none to appear for his Character, the Jury found him Guilty of the first Indictment, for keeping a disorderly House, and of the second Indictment, for an Assault upon the Body of John Burgess .

[Fine. See summary.]

[Provide sureties for good behaviour. See summary.]
