Morgan. I did .
Q. In what Capacity was the Prisoner at the Bar ? Did he belong to the Train of Artillery ?
Morgan. Yes; he overtook us at Mansell, and came to Kicksend . Mr. Arnold furnish'd all the Horses belonging to the Artillery.
Q. Well, what have you further to say?
Morgan. Then he came along with us as far as Kicksend .
Rose. On the 16th Day of June, at Kicksend, I put the Saddle and Bridle upon that Horse he rode; he rode from Kicksend to Barnet . He went on Sunday to see his Brother; we left him at Highgate .
Q. Was the Horse deliver'd to the Prisoner?
Rose. Yes, my Lord, by the Conductor's Orders.
Prisoner. No more, than that he knows I behav'd very well.
Rose. He behav'd well.
Court. We'll ask the same Question to Morgan; How did he behave all the Time upon the Road.
Morgan. I have nothing to say against his Behaviour .
Dean. At Barnet , my Lord I bought a black Gelding that belong'd to Mr. Arnold.
Q. On what Day?
Dean. On the 7th of August.
Q. What did you give the Prisoner for the Horse?
Dean. I was to give him forty-five Shillings at Whetstone .
Q. Did the Prisoner offer him to sale.
Dean. I heard of him, and I call'd upon him at Whetstone ; I gave him Sixpence Earnest. He told me he bought it of one Mr. Clark, Mr. Arnold's Conductor; I said I would have it toll'd, and there was a drunken Fellow to vouch it; he said he saw the Prisoner buy it at Smithfield; which was so contrary a Story to what the Prisoner had told, that he had bought it of one of Mr. Arnold's Conductors, that we took him up upon it.
Prisoner. I have no Question to ask, any further than that I sold the Horse to him .
Prisoner. I was along with the Train of Artillery three Quarters of a Year, when the great Troubles happened, but I never was in such a thing before in my Life .
Guilty , Death .
