Samuel Smith of the Parish of St. James, in the Liberty of Westminster , was indicted for Felony and Burglary, on the 19th day of February , and taking away Three Dozen of Kid-Leather Gloves from John Collis . It appeared that Mr. Collis had been robbed several Nights, and that the Prisoner came to the House of the Prosecutor between Eight and Nine of the Clock at Night, and drew back the Bolt of the Hatch that was before the Prosecutors Door, and went into his Shop, and took away the Goods, but being pursued, he threw them from him. He had little to say for himself; so he was found guilty .
