The Court being satisfied upon proofs, that the
Sheriff has hitherto been and is still unable
to hire out the petitioner under the order
of the Court heretofore made for that
purpose, and it appearing furthermore, that the said petitioner and her infant
child are in confinement in the jail of
this County, and that their contin-
uance in such confinement will be
highly prejudicial to their health, it is
ordered that the former order of theCourt directing the sheriff to take

into his custody for the purpose of
hiring out be so far reconsidered
as tothe said petitioner and
her child be released from con-
finement in the said County
