I saw a woman executed here yesterday for the Murder of 2 young Children. She was beheaded: for hanging here is the Punishment for theft only. […]

The woman was supported by a man on each side, but, as she passed me she seemed to walk very well and were it not that she was the only woman I should not have known by her countenance that she was the criminal. She was dressed in a dark brown or black gown and clean linnen [sic]. She and the Parson and I believe some of the rest sung as they walked along.
