Patrick Hanly and Patrick Adams, you are both young men, and have been found guilty of robbing and taking arms, and must, therefore, be offered up as victims to the offended laws of your country ; it has appeared that in eight parts of your neighbourhood, attacks ere made for arms ; and it was proved also on your trial, that they disclaimed the name of robbers, but gloried in that of White Boys….......
