     "'William Simonds and William Locke of Woburn, being convicted of seditious & contemptuous carriages towards Authority, & of putting in their votes for the choice of Deputy for the General Court, although they were warned to forbear, & also of affronting the Church in their private consultations, this Court doth sentence them to be severely whipt with thirty stripes a piece, or to pay a fine of twenty pounds a piece, and to stand bound with sufficient sureties in 20 £ bond a piece, for their good behavior & appearance at the next Court.' William Clarke and Francis Kendall engaged to pay the forty pounds and to stand as bondsmen for the offenders.—County Court Records, Vol. I, page 175, April, 1659. These fines were afterwards abated fifteen pounds apiece, on condition that satisfactory acknowledgements of the offences were made."8
