Bag with the Money and Goods mention'd in the Indictement, gon : That he believ'd the Prisoner, pretending to go to his Trunk, took an Occasion to slink into a Cellar, where he lay till the Family was a bed, and then committed the Fact. Upon this (being sure it was the Prisoner that rob'd him) he cross'd the Water to Southwark where he heard the Prisoner had taken a Shop, to search for him and at last found him going to take Water at a By-pair of Stairs; then he desir'd him to go with him to his House, which he agreed to, but when he came there, would not own any thing of the Matter he was charg'd with, tho' intreated to it in the kindest Manner. At last he was charg'd with a Constable; and as they were going before my Lord Mayor , the Prisoner was seen to drop something, which the Constable took up, and told Mr. Lisle 'twas some Buttons and a Buckle; then Mr. Lisle said, if they were his they were Bathmetal Buttons, and the Buckle was Silver, as they were found to be: Then he was search'd and the Bag aforesaid with 55 l 6 s.6 d. the Top of a Tea Canister, and other Things that he had lost, were found upon him. This was all confirm'd by the Evidence of several others. As to the Spirits and Liquors, one Maun who dealt with Mr. Lisle depos'd he had some of the Prisoner, in Consideration of a Watch he had made for him but did not think the Prisoner stole them, being then in Credit with his Master; and afterwards more in Consideration of a Clock which he bespoke of him for the Use of his House which he had taken in Southwark . The rest were found in the Prisoner's Shop; and a Porter Swore he carried them there from Mr. Lisle's by the Prisoner's Order. The Prisoner in his Defence brought a Person who swore she saw him borrow 50 l. of one Rowland in Shoreditch , and remember'd some Talk about a 4 s, and 6 d. Piece, a half Moydore, and other odd Pieces which she could not name nor distinguish. He denied he had any Buckles or Buttons of his Master's and as: for the Liquors he said he paid for them, to Cash; which Mr. Lisle denied, and proved the contrary. The Jury found him

<p>DAVID POVEY, removed from Hatton Garden near to Exeter-Exchange in the Strand, London, Operator for the Teeth, who had the Honour to clean her late, Majesty's Teeth; he sells a pleasant Dentrifice, being the same that King Charles II constantly used. It makes the Teeth as white as Ivory, and preserves them from decaying, destroying the Scarvy. He hath a Cephalick which certainly cures the Tooth-Art in a Minute's Time, beyond any person in England. If the Teeth are rotten, or uneven, and full of Holes or black Specks, he will make them smooth even sound, and white, so that no Person shall distinguish where the Defect has been. He sets in Artificial Teeth so easie, near, and firm, that they need not be removed for seven Years; and they may eat with them as well as with their former, and cannot be distinguished from their natural ones. He sells a pleasant Water, that prevents any Rottenness from seizing the Teeth, takes all Pains and Imposthumes, Cankers or Swellings out of the Gums, and fastens loose Teeth, which several Persons of Quality and others know to be true. I have sold all that is printed here to most of the Kings, Queens, Princes, Nobility and Gentry in England, since King Charles II. dy'd and before.</p>
<p>For the Good of the Publick.</p>
<p>WHereas several Gentlewomen and others of that Sex in this Kingdom, have contracted an evil Habit of Body, wherein the vicious Humours at first dispers'd thro' the Whole, come at length to be lodg'd in one Part or another, and many times, for Causes too long to be here mentioned are thrown down upon the Womb, occasioning a dangerous. Weakness in one Part, which being neglected, at last turns Cancerous, and often proves Fatal. I cure the Diabetes when given over by all other Persons. This is to acquaint all may have occasion, that a Speedy Relief is to be had from an Experienc'd Midwife, dwelling at the Sign of the Queen's Arms, a Gold Smith's Shop, near Exeter Exchange in the Strand, who perform'd a Cure upon a Lady at the Bath after she was given over by the Physicians, and since has Cured several Gentlewomen and others in the City and Suburbs of London. I should not have put my self in Publick Print, but to satisfy the Afflicted where they may, have speedy Relief after they are given over by all other Persons .</p> </div1> </div0> </body> </text></TEI.2>
