 "Mercy Disborough, you have been found guilty of the felonies and witchcrafts whereof you stand indicted. The court now passes sentence of death upon you as the law directs. You shall be carried from this place to the gaol from whence you came, and from thence to the place of execution, and there hung till you be dead. May the Lord have mercy on your soul."

Verdict of the Special Court delivered by Governor Treat

Fairfield, Connecticut, October 28, 1692.
