(Record of Conviction, June 28, 1873)

And thereupon Richard Crowley Esq., the Attorney of the United States for the said District, prayed the process of the said District Court for the arrest of the said
Susan B. Anthony and it was granted; and on the 24th day of January in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and seventy-three of the January term of said Court at the City of Albany came the Marshal of the United States for the Northern District of New York, and brought into the said District Court the body of the said Susan B. Anthony upon the said process; and the said Susan B. Anthony being duly arraigned upon the said Indictment [illegible] called upon to plead thereto, pleaded that she was not guilty of the offenses charged therein, in manner and form as the same are therein set forth, and of this she put herself upon the country, and said United States of America did the like.

And at the May term of said District Court held at the City of Rochester on the 22nd day of May, the said Richard Crowley the Attorney of the United States, for the Northern District of New York, moved that the said Indictment and the issue joined thereon be transmitted to the Circuit Court of the United States for the said Northern District of New York for disposal therein, and the said motion was granted.

Wherefore let a jury be summoned, empanelled and sworn to try the said issue at the June term of said Court in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and seventy- three at the Village of Canandaigua in the said District.

And now on that[?] 17th & 18th days of June of the term of June one thousand eight hundred and seventy- three aforesaid comes as well the Attorney of the United States for the said District as the said Susan B. Anthony and come also the jurors aforesaid; and the said jurors to speak the truth of the matters within contained being chosen, tried and sworn upon their oaths say, that the said Susan B. Anthony is guilty of the offenses charged in the said Indictment in manner and form as the same are therein set forth. And on abt.[?] 19th day of June of the June Term the said Susan B. Anthony being present in open Court, and having heard the said verdict is inquired of by the Court if she has anything to say why the judgment of the law should not be pronounced upon her according to the said verdict; and no sufficient answer being given, His Honor the Judge of the said Court, in the presence of the said Susan B. Anthony does here adjudge and sentence that the said Susan B. Anthony for the said offenses of which she stands convicted as aforesaid pay a fine of one hundred dollars and the costs of this prosecution.
