The Prosecutor's Boy deposed, that he saw the the Prisoner in his Master's Chamber about 10 a clock at night. Another Evidence deposed, that happening to be in the Prisoner's company at the Tavern and other places where they were junketing, observed they were very full of Money, fared sumptuously, went to Plays, bought new Cloaths, and liv'd merrily, treating all the Company; and thereupon application being made to him from the Prosecutor, he apprehended them, upon which there were 2 Guineas found upon the Boy, and 19 and the Rings upon the Woman with a Trunk of new Cloaths reposited in one of their new acquaintance's house .

Whereupon he sent for a Constable to apprehend her, but in the interim she desir'd to go to do her Occasions, and before the Officer came made an Elopement. The Prosecutor's Boy depos'd, That his master came home at the time beforementioned, and put the bag of Guineas into his pocket, and seat him to the Sugar Loaf in Coverlays Fields to call the Prisoner to him; that she was admitted into his chamber, and there was very familiar with his Master, taking his Purse out of his pocket, and thence a Guinea, bidding him fench a bottle of Cyder and a quartern of Brandy; which he refusing to do, and not willing to go out of the room and leave them together, because he said he suspected her to be a very ill person, and his master not to be very capable, therefore he would not go out of the room; so the Liquors were fetch'd by another. And that the Prisoner desir'd his absence, threating that if he offer'd to speak a word against their Conversation she would kill him upon the spot. And that when his mistress came in, he inform'd her what sort of a Companion his master had gotten with him; whereupon she went in and interrupted their Conversation, and examining her Husband's purs missed 10 Guineas. The Prisoner in defence gave an account of the matter to this purpose: That as she was selling Oranges the Prosecutor bought a dozen of her, giving her a, Shilling for them; that he liked his bargain and her so well, that he carried her to a Publick house, and treated her and another Woman very generously with Beer, Cyder and Brandy; staying out all night, that they were at several places, and particularly at Stepney; that he was very sweet upon her, courting her, telling her he was a single Man, importuning her to go home with him and be his Housekeeper; that she was prevail'd upon by his Importunity and fair Offers: At length he sent for a Coach, and making use of that conveniency, convey'd her into Coverlays Fields near his own house, gave her money to go into the Sugar Loaf Ale-house to stay there till she heard further from him. Accordingly she attended at the Ale-house as he directed, till his Servant came to call her home, whither she went, was well receiv'd, and kindly admitted into his Chamber. That the former civilities were repeated; he puiling out a Guinea and sending for a bottle of Cyder and quartern of Brandy, showing her his cupboard of plate: and that while she was pleasing her self with the thoughts of what she was brought to be mistress of, the Prosecutor's Wife, to her great surprize, came in, and made such a noise in her Ears, that she not sustaining the storm any longer, got away as soon as she could, to her no small mortification at the great Disappointment she had met with, incoming to a Nest so well feather'd. The Court putting the question home to the Prosecutor, whether in truth he did not pick up the Prisoner? he frankly acknowledg'd he did pick her up, but not to pick his Pocket. But was answer'd, that considering the Years he always bore abroad, and that he had a Wife at home, him loss of 10 Guineas (were they lost) was not too great a punishment for his scandalous Practices, tho' that would not excuse her could the Felony be proved upon her. Tho' there was one thing remarkable, that she treated the Prosecutor with a modesry unusual to such Practitioners, in that she took no more than 10 Guineas out of 20, when they commonly take all if they can get it, and only leave their Cully the rest. It plainly appearing the Prosecutor was so very much in drink that he might possibly mistake as to the number of his Guineas, the Jury

The Woman that was with him testified the same as to the Circumstances of his having her Riding-hood.

Hollyday deposed, that the prisoners and he met at the Harpin Grays-Inn-Lane, to console in order to rob the Mail, agreed upon it, and the pretence was to be, that they had a Commission from the Pretender, who was at Bristol; that it was to have been put in execution the Sunday before, but that they were disappointed of their Horses; that on Tuesday-night they met at about 9 a clock, took horse, and went towards Branford said till about 4 in the morning, and not seeing the Post-boy thought he had been gone by, and were for returning; but while they were covering their horses, he came by, and that they did at the Post-boy had before related, and brought the Packets to Chessey's house in Fetter-lane. Holiday's Wife deposed, that about 8 of the clock on Wednesday-morning one Smith went with her to Chessey's house; that she went up stairs, and found the Prisoners all over dirt, like frighted men, opening Letters; that Mr. Smith would not go up, upon which Williams said, G - d d - n him, why would he not came up? he has put us upon it, and now be will not be seen in it. Upon which they thought themselves unsafe there; and one of them saying he had a friend at the Black Dog in shoreditch, whom be had trusted very considerably, and believing they might be safe under his roof, the Letters were accordingly carried thither: That they found no booty in the Letters they opened on Wednesday: that one concern'd having business that he could not attend on Thursday, they were lock'd up at the Black Dog till Friday-morning; that on Friday-morning they met there, eat a Breakfast; till the man of the house was up; then they went up stairs, had a fire made, a large table set, and having hung up her Ridinghood against the key-hole, Chessey fetch'd out the bag, laid it down upon the table, and fell to opening the Letters, that they found 3 Chequer-Notes of an 100 l. each, and 3 Bank- Notes of 20 l. each, which they distributed equally; that there was likewise a Bank-Note of 35 l which being an odd sum, they sent her and Chessey's wife to lay it out in Plate, which they did, buying 2 Tankards,6 Spoons, and 3 Gold Rings, which also were divided amongst them; and that the Prisoners took each of them their parts of the Letters and carried them and dropt them in Moor-fields ,&c. Chessey's wife and she going before to see all safe; and that they found likewise a Bank-Note of 25 l. which her husband had to receive the money at the Bank, which he deposed he carried into Cannon-street to an Alehouse at the sign of the Cripple, and calling for a Porter, bid him go to the Bank to receive the money. Reeves the Porter deposed, that he plying at the corner of the street was called, and that Holliday gave him the 25 l. Note to go to the Bank to receive the money, which he did, and that there the Note and he were stopped (notice having been given of it before) and that the next morning came Holliday's Wife and one Peacock a porter along with her to the sign of the Cripple, and enquired for the Porter that a North-Country Gentleman had sent the night before with a Bank-Note, saying, that last night he got drunk, and so could not come for it himself.

It was sworn likewise, that Chessey had some of the Letters taken out of the Mail in his Pocket, when he was apprehended. Several of these things were confirmed by a variety of Evidences. The Prisoners deny'd the fact, Said they were innocent of it, and knew no more of it them the child unborn. Chessey deny'd he had been upon the back of a Horse or Mare for twelve months last past. Williams labour'd to invalidate the evidence of Holliday, saying he was a great Rogue, had been in all the Goals in England, was a perjur'd, Villain , and stood convicted of Felony, and so could not be a legal Evidence; he had been at charge to get the Copy of his Pardon produced in Court, which he pleaded in 1711, saying he had not fulfilled the Conditions of it, and so flood still convict. But he neither proving his Conviction, nor the Nonperformance of the Conditions of his Pardon it bore no weight with the Court, and the Jury found them both

The Prosecutor's Servant deposed, that the Prisoner came to his Master's shop to bespeak two plates of Silver, and came at night to fetch them; that be afterwards missed the ingot. The Prosecutor depos'd that a Neighbour's Servant came to him and told him, he had been at a Pawnbroker, that the Pawnbro-ker's Son shewed him an Ingot of Silver, which he suppos'd to be his, bearing he had lost one; that claiming the Ingot, the Pawnbroker did not deny it, but gave it to him, promising that he would secure the Prisoner, which he afterwards did but let him go, having receiv'd the Money that was lent on the Ingot. The Prosecutor endeavoured to apprehend him, but could not find him, till it happen'd that the Prisoner having arrested a Man, one came to him and told him if he would get the person arrested, at liberty, he would give him an opportunity of apprehending the Prisoner, which he did, when the Prisoner was sent for to agree the matter with his Debtor. The Pawnbrnker's Son depos'd, that he lent the Mony, viz.48 s. on the Ingot, unknown to his Father, he not being at that time at home.

He likewise produced an Evidence who depos'd, that he went to Mr. Lewis, the Prosecutor, to desire him to be favourable in the Prosecution, and that Lewis told him, he would favour him all he could if he would be an Evidence against the Broker, he being the Man he aimed at, and would spend 100 l. to plague him, because he was a Mughouse-man.
