That he never saw such times in his Life, Men were so poor. Then the said Roberts came by, and Pynes fell upon him, and drew his Sword, and kill'd him; after this he went to Tovey's House, and took a Bible, and made him swear, That he would never discover the Murder as long as he lived. Being asked, why she did not discover the Murder in all this time; she said, she was afraid that her Husband, or some of Pynes's Associates should Murder her; but he being Executed last Sessions, she thought fit now to divulge it.

The two Women were in the melting Room, and Wilkinson was in the next Room, but nothing suspicious in his custody; whereas in the Womens there was found a Bag of Clippings, and about 10 l. newly Clipt. Another Witness, one Mrs. Pickering, swore that she was wont to lie in the House, and then she saw Mr. Wilkinson and his wife Clip money several things, which was about two years ago. And being ask'd, why she conceal'd it so long; she said it was, because her Husband, one Mr. Pickering, was concerned with them, and therefore she was afraid to discover them. She swore further, That Mr. Wilkinson told her, that he had so much broad money, that he wanted persons to Clip it, and ask'd her to help them to Clip; so she did, whereby she had the opportunity to see them at work; and that she was to have 6 d. in the pound for Clipping the said broad money. Mr. Wilkinson said in his defence, that Malson brought the Bag of Clippings into his House, and that he knew nothing of it; that the Witness was an ill Woman, and went by several Names, no less than Eight. But the Court replied, that she did not deny that; and that he was wont to buy stolen Goods of her, that her Confederates had got unlawfully; particularly, several that Pickering gave her, who is now a Convict in Leicester Gaol, for which Mr. Wilkinson was tried heretofore, and had the Fortune to be acquitted.

The Evidence was first the Chyrurgions, who searched the Child, and found it much abused; having a large Tumor in the Lower Parts, and abundance of fetid stinking Matter issued from her. The Secret Parts were much lacerated and turn, which was done by Force, and no other way. The Midwife also declared her Opinion, which agreed with the Chyrurgeons Evidence. The Child was examined, and declared, that the Prisoner took her up at his own door in Lime-street, as she was going from School, and enticed her up stairs with him, and gave her some Currance, and then

To prove the Child the Mother and another woman put the Girl before them; and bid her show them the House where she was misus'd: so she went strait before, and brought them to the very Door where Mr. Eales lived and went up two pair of stairs, telling them that that was the Room. Mr. Eales in his Defence, proves First, That he was not at home that day the Indictment charged him to have done the Fact. Secondly, That the Girl was of Evil Repute. And Thirdly, He had several Gentlemen of good Quality, who gave an exceeding good Character of his Life and Conversation, and that he was a person of modest behaviour, and a very ingenious man. The Tryal was very long, and there was no Evidence to prove the Fact but the Child, and the Account that was given of Mr. Eales give such ample satisfaction to the Court, that the Jury gave a Verdict that the Prisoner was

Then she was seiz'd by one of them, who pull'd her by the Throat, and knockt her down. Afterwards they thrust some Rags and a ty'd Handkerchief into the mouth of Madam Le-grand, which choked her; then they opened the Bags of money and filled their Pockets, some falling upon the Floor; but away they went, and dropt more of the money in the streets. Mrs. Larroe lay upon her Face through Fear, so could not discover which of them kill'd Madam Le-grand, but she saw her dead within two hours after. Mr. Baker likewise gave an Account, That he saw three men, who lookt very suspiciously, walk to and fro near the House, and did not know them, but John Jewster was not with them; yet afterwards, when he was examined in Newgate, he freely confest the Fact thus: I am not concerned in the Murther, says he, neither was I in the House; but he was consenting to the Robbery, and that he and Butler, Paul Grove, Edward Hinton, and his Brother Francis, were the five persons that did it; and that his Brother William was no ways concerned. This he expressed with great Reluctancy, wringing his hands, saying he was afraid he should die John said, that they were to divide the money the next day, but he would not go to receive his share. Other Evidence was produced for the King, who declared, That the woman, Madam Le-grand, was found lying dead at the bottom of the Stairs in the Kitchen, with her Hands and Legs tied, and her Mouth full of Rags, tied down with a Handkerchief; and that Mrs. Mouth was stopt with Rags too, but not so full as to choke her, and that there was a Cry of Murder. Other Evidence that were there, found Madam Le-grand's Neck tied fast to a Chair, twisted with a Stick drawn through the Chair, which was a most barbarous and ugly sight to behold. As to Butler it was sworn, That he and three more were seen near Madam Le-grand's Door, a little before the Murther and Burglary was committed; and the Sword that was found lying under the Old woman, was the same Sword that one of them had by his side: But there being a Flaw in the Indictment, it was altered, and they were again Arraigned after in the Afternoon, together with

The Evidence was again repeated, as before, and it was very positive as to Butler, that he was the man that came first into the House, and made the Offer to the said Le-grand, about the compounding of the Bond. He would have proved he was in another place at the same time, but could not. John Jewster denied that he was there; but the Evidence was positive that he was walking to and fro before the Door, as if he stood to watch or keep Guard. And being told how that Madam Le-grand was murdered, he replied to them, Hold your Tongue, for there is Money enough. There was no Evidence positive as to Frances Jewster, but presumptive; so the Jury
