We exploit the English testing system of "quasi-blind" externally marked tests and "nonblind" internal assessment to compare differences in these assessment methods between white and ethnic minority pupils. Rebellious tenant farmers continued their violence, including killing a grenadier. On Wednesday, Aug. All jurors were among the landed gentry of the colony.
Justice Robert R. Livingston, father of a fast-rising New York City lawyer and uncle of Dutchess County Sheriff James Livingston, was present in court although not sitting. Prendergast was charged with disturbing the peace, levying war against the king, assembling a number of unlawfully for that purpose and did order and levy war. The trial against my 5x great grandfather proceeded continuously for 24 hours.
It was covered by the Poughkeepsie correspondent of the New York Gazette, which had reported on the Rent Rebellion in the prior months. News of the rent rebellion trials had a tremendous following in the fast-growing port city 80 miles south. Prendergast's was the headline trial.

Although William was not permitted to have legal assistance, his Quaker wife Mehitable rose in the court to his defense. Despite Mehitable's attempts to assign blame elsewhere, the evidence against William was too great. Even the visible presence of their children failed to solicit an acquittal from the court. The landed gentry of the jury returned a guilty verdict against this leveler who sought to give power to the weak. Justice Horsmanden said the jury's harsh verdict didn't accord with the evidence and ordered them to deliberate further.
Justice Horsmanden had no choice but to assign the punishment appropriate for high treason against his Majesty — to be hanged and his entrails burned while still alive on Sept. Frank Monaghan. Moore was the only one who could help. If the governor was not leaving soon on a long journey, he might have had the opportunity to stay the execution while a petition for a pardon was sent to King George III. But the justice said it was too late.
Already exhausted from her efforts in an emotional hour trial, Mehitable was about to undertake an incomprehensible task. First she warned a small crowd of angry farmers outside the courthouse not to take any action involving her husband until they saw her again. Then she departed for the Beekman home of her older, wealthier sister Abigail, borrowed her most elegant dress, packed it away, retrieved a lantern and gathered food before riding off alone into the evening, heading south.
At Fish Kill just before midnight, she picked up the Albany Post Road which was like most of the king's rural highways — fraught with danger. Many travelers encountered beasts of all kinds, be they thieving highwaymen or wild creatures.

There were often rocks or fallen trees in the uneven path and could not be seen in the dark. It was only four days after the eclipse, so the night was as black as could be imagined. The moon had barely started waxing. A proper lady sat sidesaddle but, when others weren't around, she could be excused if she rode with her legs on both sides of the horse.
For the next 15 miles after passing Fish Kill, she likely did not pass another living soul until along Sprout Brook north of Peeks Kill. The road was miles from the Hudson River and took her through the darkest, most terrifying forests made more infamous by more than a century of Dutch lore. Those stories included haunted Dutch burying grounds, bridge trolls and other ghouls. The road returned to alongside the Hudson and morning came.
She would have passed more people and countless tenant farms throughout the day. After dusk and more than 24 hours into her journey, she slipped by the Yonkers mansion of her family's nemesis, Frederick Philipse III. Perhaps she feared being recognized in Yonkers as she did in being attacked by wild animals in the thick forests north of Peeks Kill?

At the Harlem River, she had two bridges to choose from to reach Manhattan. One was the King's Bridge to Marble Hill.
The other was the recently built Farmers' Bridge which was without toll. On the improved road down the length of Manhattan Island, Mehitable's tired horse was able to reach the intersection with The Bowry Lane in only two hours. Homes were passed every few hundred feet, including the farm of former governor James DeLancey whose relative served on William's jury. On each wooden pole or tree were handbills displaying patriotic American messages. A commons was encountered at the intersection with The Broad Way.
At the south end of the commons was a brand-new church — St. Paul's Chapel. South of there along The Broad Way were 10 more blocks of crowded port city, bustling with conviviality even at the midnight hour. The street brought Mehitable to the sight of Fort George at the Battery, where her husband was kept a week earlier. At a nearby tavern, she could have purchased tea to fend off sleep and used a foul latrine to slip into her sister's elegant dress.
Mehitable arrived at the doors of the fortress and was at first told the governor had retired for the night. He could not be disturbed as he needed rest for the long trip tomorrow. She begged for entry and explained why she was there. It was the first news that anyone at the fort had heard about the outcome of Prendergast's trial. Despite her lack of sleep, Mehitable told Sir Moore her husband's story coherently and concisely, striding back and forth in front of him in her lovely blue and white striped linen.
He then permitted Mehitable to draw up in her own words the petition for a royal pardon. It was ordered sent to the Earl of Shelburne for presentation forthwith at Whitehall. Fort George figured prominently in events during and after Prendergast's Rent War. With the reprieve in hand and knowing there would be ever-increasing pressure by William Prendergast's supporters to free him from jail and turn him into a fugitive, she mounted her exhausted horse and dashed north out of New York City at greater speed than she arrived.
For the second time, Mehitable traveled by Philipse's Yonkers mansion in the shadows, this time moments before dawn. Throughout the day she and her horse labored northward. Could she remember passing the same landmarks as she had southbound? Did she fear taking a wrong turn in her condition?
Did she begin imagining things like feeling rain drops that weren't really there? Mehitable was going on four days without sleep. In the middle of the night, she left the dark woods south of Fish Kill and would have noticed the familiar Brewers' mill at Wappingers Falls.
