[The Magistrate, loq.:]
YOU have confessed, and by a recent Act,
The 80 chapter, 13 George the Third,
The penalties, thereto attached, incurred,
Which says, if any in the night should dare,
With dog, or net, or gun, to kill a hare,
Between the hours of seven and six a.m.,
A magistrate may lawfully condemn
To pay a fine of Twenty Pounds, and we
Inflict upon you the full penalty;
And if you make default, or goods should fail,
Three months' confinement in the common jail.
