The Prisoners came to the House of Jacob, and told him they were come to search his House upon suspicion of High Treason, upon which he arose out of his Bed, and let them in; as soon as they were entered, instead of searching for Clippings, &c. they fell to rifling the House, and took away one Silver Tankard, value 6l. one Caudle-cup, 50s. one Salt, 5l. one Silver Porringer, val. 30s. Six Forks, val. 3l. Nine Knives, val. 40s. and other Plate; when they had done this, they carried Mr. Jacob, his Wife and Maid away to the King's Messenger's House in Piccadilly, pretending they had a Warrant from the Secretary of State to do so; viz. no search for Clippers; but they carried none of the Plate with them to the Messengers. They produced the Secretary's Warrant in Court, which was read on their behalf; but were told by the Court that their Warrant was to impower them to seize the persons, not the goods; and the Warrant was directed to a Messenger, and not to them; and what had they to do to meddle with the Goods? Batson said, That, what he did, was through ignorance, having been not long deputed to search for Clippers: Then the Constable, who was with them in the search of Jacob's House, swore that the Prisoners came to him at his Watch-house, and caused him by force to go along with them; and one in the Company held a Pistol to his Breast, but he could not tell which of them: They produced a Copy of their Deputation in Court, but they were told that did not avail, because they had acted more than they ought; they said they would produce the Plate: Upon the whole, the Court told the Jury, That such practices as these were of dangerous consequence, and therefore the more to be consider'd by them.

Mr. Puplett being so tricked out of so much money, and not knowing what to do to get it, and make up the Cash against his Master's return from Bristol, was persuaded to comply; upon which he raised several Sums, some of which were in Guineas, the rest in Silver, to the value of about 1000 l. in all, and with that he was shipt off from Harwich; this was the sum of the Evidence against the Prisoners. They by their Counsel pleaded, that they never allured nor inticed Mr. Puplet, neither did they know the money was his Master's; and that he was as forward as they in the whole matter, which was declared upon oath by several Witnesses on their side; that did them no kindness, for the Jury were pleased to consider the bad Consequences of such base Practices as these, so after a long hearing, the said Steward and Rowland were found
