[dateline] In Superior Court at Plymo[uth]May 1768.
Order'd that the aforesaid Judgment and proceedings of the Court of General Sessions
of the peace be quash'd—1st. Because it doth not appear in the Record aforesaid where

Oath of the said Jane and on that only.

have ordered the said Manuel to give Security to save the Town or Place where the
Child was born from Charge for its maintenance.
