Margaret Keith or Tough

In the month of June last, the Sitting Magistrate, on the complaint of the Procurator Fiscal, sentenced Margaret Keith alias Tough, (a notorious and incorrigible thief, who had formerly been brought to trial before the Circuit Court of Justiciary, and sentenced to seven years transportation) to be confined and kept to hard labour in Bridewell for Two Years, for stealing.  This woman is upwards of 70 years of age.
