  • Quiet!!!!
  • Crime - her and another female lured a young girl to an outhouse and stole her clothes and pawned them for 18 shillings.
  • You will scrub the deck and collect the cargo!
  • Sentencing - They were sentenced to death but Mary (Right) drew the big straw and was sent to Australia instead of Death by hanging.
  • The convicts would be sentenced and sent to a gaol until further action was taken.
  • Convicts like Mary were sent to Australia as the gaols were getting full and they canceled her hanging but Mary's friend wasn't so lucky.
