Colonel Hay, from the Committee appointed to examine Thomas Vernon, delivered in their Report, and the Examination of the said Thomas Vernon, which was read and filed.

It thereby appears that the said Thomas Vernon is a worthless fellow, of no consequence. That no dependance is to be put on his information. As to Craig, the said Committee gave it as their opinion that he ought to be separated from Vernon, and not confined in the same place with him.
