That afterwards being in the Coffee-Room, a Stone hit him on the Leg, and then he went to the Constable, one overs, and asked him, if he was not ashamed to suffer such Things, having Authority and Watchmen enough to prevent it, by securing such Persons as threw the Stones; who answered him, I was the People in the Mug-house that did it, and broke their own Windows; that his Hour was not come, viz. 10 a Clock. After this Mrs. Read sent a Quart of Ale to the Watchmen to drink the King's Health, but another Constable who was there then refus'd it, and forbid his Watchmen to drink it. Then one Mr. Hucks offered them a Crown, saying, Come, these look like honest Watchmen, there's a Crown for them to Drink; which they took, but the Constable made them return that also. Then a Constable who was in the House read the Proclamation, upon which the other with his Watch came in, and demanded the Reason of that Rout, and was answered by the other Constable, There was no Rout but what was made by your Mob, and therefore they had just read the Proclamation to disperse them; to which he replied, he was no Constable in that Ward, and therefore was not to direct him, and went away. A little while after some Mischief happened at the Swan Ale-house, and Mrs. Read beg'd the Favour of some Gentlemen to stay in her House all Night, as he and some others did; and about 6 a Clock the next Morning the Mob began togather, and continued till 9, throwing Stones at the Windows, and seemed inclined to do more Mischief; upon which the Deponent ventured out to them to reason with them, and to desire them to be easy and quiet, and not ruin a Man who had done them no harm; in which Time he received two Knocks by Stones, one of which broke his Head and made him bleed very much, whereupon he ran into the House for a Stick, and drove them, but struck no body but the Person who hit him with the Stone. After this, being informed that an armed Mob was preparing to pull down the Mug-house, they sent two Expresses, one to the Lord Mayor, the other to the Lord Townsend; and it was not long before a great Mob armed, with Sticks and Clubs, appeared in Fleetstrees making up the Court; whereupon they consulted what had best to be done for the Security of the House; and it was his Advice to attack them before they joined the Mob in the Court, and became too formidable; and so they did, having a Blunderbuss which was brought to them about half and Hour before in a Coach: He and the Prisoner went out, and after they were repulsed, the Prisoner bid the Mob have a Care, stand off, near a quarter of an Hour before he fir'd, which was done about a Yard and a half from his House, and then he went in to make a Barricade.</p>

Next Morning about 8 a-Clock, the Mob (Men Women, and Children) began to show their Colours, by crying out, High Church and Ormond for ever, and Down with the Mug-house. At last, about 11 a-Clock, their Number was very great, and he having his Arms, drove them from the Door 2 or 3 times into Fleet-street. Then the Proclamation was read, which served but to encrease their Rage and Number, who threw Stones so thick, that the Gentlemen were obliged to go into the House; and then he with the Prisoner, who was also armed, went out and presented their Pieces, bidding them he gone, true a Care, stand off, &c.6 Minutes, during which Time they were pelted with Stones, so that they could take no Aim; the Mob still advancing upon them, and hollowing out Down with the Mug-house, and then they both fired; after which he posted himself for the Defence of the House, but in a little time some of them broke into it behind, and pushed him into the Court; and then he was so beat with Sticks and Clubs, and dragg'd along the Channel, that had it not been for the Guards and the Care of Mr.

After which the Mob much encreased, and he heard them cry out, High Church and Ormond, No King George, No Hannoverians, Down with the Mug-house.

He was also indicted upon the Coroner's Inquest for Manslaughter. It appear'd by the Evidence. That the Prisoner and the Deceas'd were very intimate dear Friends; never happy out of one another's Company, but continually falling out when they were together. The Night before the Fact was committed, they were with some other Persons at the Swan Tavern in Red-Lion-Square, where a great many Fallings-out and Reconcilements had pass'd between them, which was so common that it was not much minded by the rest of the Company. It happened that the Prisoner was indebted to the Deceas'd who urged him to pay him the Money, and this occasioned their last Quarrel; high Words passed between them, and the Prisoner told him he might go out; upon which the Deceas'd replied, He did not some these to fight, he could fight a better Man than he was; Thus he had left an Ozhen Stick at a Friend's House, and was going to Tottenham-Court, and if he should light of him in his Way be would beat him first, and let him know robat Fighting was afterwards; but this passed, and they staid together till 5 a Clock; that Morning, when they parted very much in Wine. Three or four Hours after, the Deceas'd and another Gentleman called upon the Prisoner at his Lodgings and would have him out, neither of them being yet sober to get him to take up 41 1. at his Uncle's due to a Note he h in his Hands, to pay off their Demands, which being done they went to the Nagg's Head Tavern in Cheapside , and there they fell out again, one saying, You did not do honourably by last Night, and the other replying the same, threatning to fight, as usual; but this passed too, and they all agreed to take Coach to the Swan Tavern on Fish-street Hill, and Sir Knowles who was with them, where the Money was to be paid; but before they came to London-Stone. Mr. Knowles went out of the Coach to call upon a Friend; and being left to themselves they grew uneasy, and in a very little Time the Coachman was called to stop again, and the Deceas'd went out first, and the Prisoner followed; and while he was beating up his Seats the Business was done; the Prisoner was much wounded and down, and the Deceased was seen to strike him with the Hilt of his Sword; very furiously , and heard to say Damn him, he has hisled me, but I have mapled him for it. They were both carried to the Swan Tavern, and dressed, and laid the fault upon each other. The next Day the Deceas'd died. Upon the whole, considering they were both in Wine, and that their Blood had not time to cool, the Jury brought the Prisoner in

<p>One Mrs. Taylor deposed, the Prisoner and the Deceas'd lay together in the Stable, and on the 1 st of last February the Prisoner told her the Deceas'd was gone to Esq; Caser's about selling a Horse, with which she was contented; but hearing nothing of him in 2 or 3 Days, when she saw the Prisoner again, she ask'd him, if he had heard any thing yet from Richard
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="171609060007"/> Davis; But he answered, he had not seen him since, nor heard any thing of him. This very much surpriz'd her and the Prisoner himself having been out of the Way 2 or 3 Days too since she spoke with him last, she did not know what to think of it; but about a Fortnight after the Deceas'd was found cover'd with Dung headless.</p>
<p>Another Evidence (one Bisbop) depos'd That missing his Fellow-Servant, he asked the Prisoner what was become of him, who made him the same Answer as before; upon which he ask'd him what Cloaths he went in, and he said, in his own Cloaths, and had left his Livery in the Stables. That some time after this, being in the Field where there was a little Dunghill, the Prisoner, who was in the Yard, called to him, and asked him to drink, and fetcht a Pot of Beer, and afterwards another; appearing to be pretty full of Money, and then asked him if he had turn'd the Dung yet, and he told him No, it had not had time to rot. That next Morning he had Occasion to fetch a Wheelbarrow off the Dunghill, where he found a Human Skull, which struck him with Terror, and made him believe it was Richard Davis's, but it was pickt clean to the very Bone, which he believ'd might be done by the Hogs who were in the Field. With this Surprize he went to the Prisoner, and said, Lord have Mercy upon us, Richard, there's Skull upon yonder's Dunghill; but he replied not a Word, and immediately went off. Then he went to a Neighbour's and told him what he had found, who going with him to the Place found the Body also in the Livery, but no Buckles in the Shoes, where the Deceas'd us'd to wear Silver ones, not Money in his Pockets, tho' it was well known he did not use to be without it.</p>
<p>Two Women swore, the Prisoner brought them some Cloaths to pawn, and to sell for him, which proved to be the Deceased's; but it was remarkable, that the Prisoner had stript off the Silver Buttons which were upon some of them, before he brought them.</p>
<p>One Mr. Smith confirmed much of this Evidence, and depos'd, that the Prisoner was missing a great while after the skull was found, but at last was taken at Richmond, when he confessed the Fact.</p>
<p>Upon Trial he seem'd to be stung with the most sensible Remorse of his crying Guilt, not daring to look his Judge nor Jury in the Face; but being often ask'd what had mov'd him to so great a Sin, he at last said, that the Deceased and he had quarrel'd, upon which he kill'd him; but denied he cut off his Head. The Jury found him
