Inquest on the Sudden Death of an Indian Child
We whose names are underwritten, being appointed a jury of inquest to inquire into the sudden death of an Indian child, we found the child lying dead in an Indian cradle with the throat of it cut. The above-said child was in an Indian wigwam on the land of Peter Talman's, near the West River's mouth. This was on the 26th of August 1705 about four of the clock in the afternoon; and we did judge her throat was cut with a knife.
The names of the jury are
Concerning manslaughter in Guilford, Evere's Case, October 1705
