On the 7th of December Mengho was tortured under the supervision of four magistrates and a notary. He confessed, and the notary recorded it. More goods were recovered. Once he had admitted to stealing the silk, Mengho confessed to numerous other crimes over the past few years. On the same day, he confirmed his confessions before the court and judge Vecto.

Judith 10:3-5

3: She took off her widow's garments, and bathed her body with water, and anointed herself with precious ointment, and combed her hair and put on a tiara, and arrayed herself in her gayest apparel, which she used to wear while her husband Manasseh was living.
4: And she put sandals on her feet, and put on her anklets and bracelets and rings, and her earrings and all her ornaments, and made herself very beautiful, to entice the eyes of all men who might see her.
5: And she gave her maid a bottle of wine and a flask of oil, and filled a bag with parched grain and a cake of dried fruit and fine bread; and she wrapped up all her vessels and gave them to her to carry.
