They were very intimate, and acquitted that Sessions together. Lancasterwent Home to his Friends, the Appearance of the Court having for the present struck such a Terror into him, that he thought never to run the Risk again of being brought before it: But, it is generally observed, that once entered on these wicked Courses, they seldom leave till Justice overtakes them; and he had not been long at Liberty, but he and two more set out on an Expedition, intending to rob every one they met: And in June last, two Miles on this Side Rumford, they met a Gentleman on Horseback, whom they beset, and robbed of a Metal Watch, and some Money, and sold the Watch for 1 l. 2 s.</p>
<p>After this, L - came to Lancaster, I think he said the 24th of August, and accosting him with an Oath, said to him, What signifies working all Day for a Trifle; prithee go along with me, we will get Money enough, and live well. Thus their Acquaintance renewed again, and as they were going together towards Bartholomew Fair, they met a Boy that had stolen a Half-pint Silver Mug. The Boy, knowing them to be of the Trade, tells them what he had got, and as he was too far off from where he used to sell his Prizes, advised with them about it. They were then near Duke's Place (a great Receptacle of stolen Goods) where Lancaster and L - used to deal. The Few they applied to would not buy it then; the only Reason given, was, there were too many together, and he was afraid of Discovery. Then they went to another Jew, one

Lancaster seeing him, busy in the Closet, asked him, What he did there, and what he was about? They might have taken more Things, but Lancaster, afraid of being discovered, thought it the best Way to march off with what they had, paid the Landlord for the Pint of Beer they drank, and went away with Design to sell the Mug the Boy had brought them.</p>

To this End they thought a Bag necessary, and accordingly, having no other Materials, sew'd two blue Linnen Aprons together, which Lancaster wore, more to blind the World than for Use (having for some Time past left off Work) and made one.
