The following is an extract from todayâ€™s choice from â€œTales of the Old Baileyâ€ at: http://www.oldbaileyonline.org/ â€œWilliam Green was a 2d time indicted for a Riot and Assault upon William Jones . W. Jones deposed, that on the 26th of Nov. last, about 7 in the Evening, he was drinking at the Tewksbury-Church Alehouse in Whitechappel, when the Prisoner and others came in, knock'd him down, and drag'd him thro' Whitechappel to their usual Place of Rendezvous in the New Mint . There they stript him naked, and wore Sixpenny worth of Rods to the Stumps in whipping of him, and he believed he received a thousand Lashes. Then they put on his Cloaths again, and threw him into a Pit fill'd with Human Excrement, and other Filth, in which they dipt the Rods when they whipt him. There they duck'd him several times, and as they took him out, the Prisoner held him up by the Hair, and thrust a Turd into his Mouth; and then they attended him part of the Way home, with lighted Links. The Prisoner, when carry'd before Sir Isaac Tillard , desired to be made an Evidence against Mr. Saintloe. Another Witness deposed, that he saw the Prosecutor when he came back, attended with near two hundred of the Mob; but he was so cover'd over with Excrement, that he could see no Part of him but his Teeth. Guilty . Punishments: Miscellaneous > fine; Corporal > pillory; Imprisonmentâ€ William Jones must have pissed them off something rotten, for them to have done that to him. 8O IMO, Fascinating stuff.
