[16] “Law

“He shall have his foot confined in the stocks for five days, if the court shall make such addition to the sentence.”” The “stocks” there mentioned, Theomnestus, are what we now call “confinement in the wood.” So if a person confined should on his release accuse the Eleven, at their public examination, of having him confined, not in the stocks, but in the wood, they would take him for an idiot, would they not? Read another law.
