With their several Confessions ... as also Their ... Behaviour, at the ... Execution on the Twenty fifth of the said Month_, London, 1682. This, the fullest account (40 pp.), gives

This pamphlet is a brief summary of several cases just finished and has every evidence of being a faithful account. It is to be found in the library of Lincoln's Inn.
