of the Commonwealth the said sum of Two hundred and fifty dollars -- Your petitioner yet believes in the perfect innocence of Thomas; and as strong proof of the correctness of this opinion, he refers your Honorable [bodies?] to the fact that person charged as the accomplice of Thomas, by Elisha Peters, was recently tried and acquitted upon the very proof, relied and to sustain the prosecution against Thomas – This result was produced as your petitioner has no question by the Jury discrediting the testimony –
