      persons disguised; who in order to extort a confession of money, with a
      spade-iron, which they reddened in the fire, burned and branded said Welsh and
      his Wife, in several parts of their Bodies, in so cruel and inhuman a manner,
      that their lives are despaired of; and disappointed of their expectations, the
