<p>She then call'd several Witnesses, to prove that the Goods mention'd in the Indictment were her's, and that the Prisoners at the Bar had them without her Consent; but their Depositions not concurring with each other, they had no other Effect than to prove that the Whole was a misterious Labyrinth, and that both the Prisoners and the Prosecutor were a contentious malicious People. The Evidences for the Prisoners confirm'd the same, there not being two of them who agreed in their Depositions; however, it appear'd to the Court, that the Prosecutor had put the Prisoners at some Expence at Bristol, that they had been at Charges on the Road to London, on her Account, and that she had acknowledg'd herself indebted to them; and furthermore, that she consented to the Pawning of some of those Goods with which she charged the Prisoners: Upon the Whole, the Jury <rs id="t17280228-76-verdict334" type="verdictDescription"> <interp inst="t17280228-76-verdict334" type="verdictCategory" value="notGuilty"></interp>
