This Day a Woman, who had been a long Time a Prisoner, and had deserted, & been retaken, and brought into the Town on Christmas Eve, was put to Death in the following manner: They carried her into the Town, & let her loose, and when she attempted to run away, the Persons appointed for that Purpose pursued her, & struck Her on the Ear, on the right Side of her Head, which beat her flat on her face on the Ground; they struck her several Times,thro the Back a Dart, to the Heart, scalped Her: & threw the Scalp in the Air, and another cut off her Head: There the dismal Spectactle lay till the Evening, & then Barny Curran desired Leave to Bury Her, which He, and his Men, and some of the Indians did just at Dark.
