the witnesses appears to have occupied the Court for seven days in the months of May and June and to have been conducted with great minuteness, &c.
George Robertson, post, was sent with the depositions of the witches to purchase a commission to put them to an inquest. The clerk was ordained to direct a missive to Andrew Conqueror Commissioner to Parliament from the town and another to Charles Rollock baillie who were then Edinburgh and another to Mr. John Guthrie minister there that they all three might concur for obtaining the Commission.
The Commission being obtained the witches were tried and condemned, they suffered the ordinary punishment by being strangled at the stake and afterwards burned, on Friday July the 18th. 1623.
The place where such tragic scenes were perpetrated is said to have been a hollow in the North Inch.
