The ship-load of old scolding women, living near this place [electronic resource] : who are speedily to be banished from all civil societies, and transported to the heathen shore, for raising scandalous reports of their neighbours, towing seeds of jealousie, contention and strife, and setting several families together by the ears. With the whole tryals and condemnation of Mrs. Tittle-tattle Busy-body, and Mrs. Make-bate, two sisters, before the worshipful Justice Make-peace, at the Assizes held at Tranquility-Court. Together with the jury and witnesses names. As also how they were found guilty, with the sentence that passed on them: [as] a terrible warning to all tattling, gossiping women, to forbear the like evil practices. With their execution, last speech and confession, life and conversation: being very pleasant and comical. Licensed according to order.
