Petition by Ann Fraser to the Magistrates of Inverness: the decision

This is the answer to a petition by Ann Fraser requesting a more lenient sentence. She admitted stealing food and drink and being found "in a loose way with Severalls of the Military in this Burgh". She offered to give up her present way of life and to be permanently banished from the area. Here is the decision of Baillie William Macintosh to grant Ann's request. He notes the punishment she can expect if she is found in the area, i.e. to be whipped through the public streets of the burgh on the first Friday after her arrest. He adds that she can also expect additional punishment, as directed by the magistrates
