It appear'd by the Evidence for the King, That the Prisoner stepping on the Deceased's Hoy, in order to go over, the Hatches broke, upon which high Words happen'd betwixt them, and the Prisoner stepping on Shoar again, went up to the Deceas'd, and gave him a Shove, who return'd it by a Blow on the Face, which made the Prisoner's Nose bleed; whereupon he drew his Sword, and made a Blow at the Deceas'd, and then the Witness stept in and wrench'd the Sword out of his Hand, but he could not say the Deceas'd receiv'd any Wound: That when he had so taken away the Sword, he gave it to the Deceas'd, who gave it back to the Prisoner, and so all was over. Another depos'd, That coming over Tower Wharf, he saw the Deceas'd (with whom he was well acquainted) between whom and the Prisoner, he understood there had been a Quarrel, and that he perswaded them to be Friends, and take a Glass of Wine together; and all seem'd

The Prisoner in his Defence deny'd he push'd the Deceas'd; but said he came peaceably up to him, and took him by the Button, asking him the Cause of so much ill Language, and that thereupon the Deceas'd gave him a very violent Blow on the Face so that the Blood gush'd out of his Nose, which did provoke him to draw his Sword, but he was not sensible he struck the Deceas'd. He had also some Witnesses who depos'd, that the Deceas'd first assaulted and struck the Prisoner, and that they knew not how he came by his Hurt in the Scuffle. There were several Surgeons and others, who took it upon their Oaths, that they believ'd the Wound was not the Cause of his Death, he being of a very ill Habit of Body, and frequently ailing before.

This caus'd other Words, and the Prisoner drew his Sword (the Deceas'd's hanging upon a Peg) which as soon as the Company saw, they interpos'd, and took it from him, but did not see him wound the Deceas'd, who soon fell down and dy'd. Being ask'd if the Deceas'd had any Cane in his Hand, they cou'd not say he had; but were sure there was no Sword drawn but the Prisoner's. A Drawer swore, That hearing a Noise, he ran up, and saw the rest of the Gentlemen between the Prisoner and the Deceas'd; and being ask'd if the Deceas'd had a Cane, said he saw none. The Prisoner in his Defence said, that the Deceas'd having given him ill Language, he reply'd he was a Gentleman, and as good as he; whereupon the Deceas'd struck him several times with a Cane, and he did draw his Sword, but did not make any Push, and believes the Deceas'd might in his Eagerness run upon the Point. To prove the Deceas'd cau'd him, one Mrs. Evans made Oath, that she lives just over-against the King's Arms Tavern; and being up in her Chamber, and hearing a great Noise, she went to the Window, from thence the Sashes being up) she could plainly see and hear all that pass'd in the Room, where the Prisoner and the Deceas'd, and the other Gentlemen were, it being a Room upon a pair of Stairs; and that she did hear the Deceas'd (as she since understood it to be) give the Prisoner a great many hard words, and afterwards saw him strike him, but could say nothing to the drawing the Sword. Another Woman swore, That going along the Street on the other side of the Way, she heard a Noise in the Room, and saw the Deceas'd strike the Prisoner with a Cane or a Stick several times. The same was sworn by a Watchman, that he heard the Words into the Street, and saw the Deceas'd strike the Prisoner 3 times. There were also several who had look'd at the Room where the Accident happen'd, from Mrs. Evan's Chamber, and from the other side of the Street, and swore, that high Words might be heard, and Persons distinguish'd from either of the Places. The Prisoner had several Gentlemen who said their Meeting was accidental, and that the Deceas'd and he never had the least Disagreement, and also, that the Prisoner had at all times behav'd himself after a very ineffective and courteous Manner, and that he was born a Gentleman, his Grandfather and Father being both Justices of Peace in Ireland, whereupon the Jury brought him in

The Prisoner in her Defence said to the same Purpose, that he had beat her with a Horse-whip as long as the small End would last, and then that she in her Rage did attempt to cut his Boots; but knew not how he came by his Hurt.
