The Prisoner objected against the Legality of Holiday's Evidence, alledging that he had been convicted of Felony, and had not performed the Conditions of his Pardon. The former part of his Allegation was allow'd; but that he had not fulfilled the Conditions of his Pardon was not prov'd and therefore the Court accepted him as a Legal Evidence, Whereupon William Holiday deposed, That the Prisoner brought him first acquainted with Williams and Chessey , which was upon the 18th of January, and that he recommended them to him as stout Fellows, fit to undertake any bold Enterprize and that at that time they projected the robbing of the Bost-boy, he going with them to procure horses to put the Design in execution, telling him likewise he would borrow Pistols for him, but did not, but brought them Bags to put the Letters in, and that he was to have 6 Guineas a man of them for his Share, and that he came to Chessey's house the morning after he had robbed the Post, and that who' he did not come up, he saw him out at the Window. Mary Holiday deposed, that the night before, when her Husband was going away, he told her, that he did not know that he should come home that night, but if he did not, he should go out of Town, bidding her, if he did not, to go to Smith's Lodgings, and he would direct her to find him; and that accordingly she went to Smith about 7 or 8 of the clock the next morning, when he was in bed, but coming down to her underst , she lent him her lanthorn and candle, and he went up and dressed himself, came down to her, and went with her to Chessey's Lodging, in Fetter-lane, and seeing the Portes at the door, was angry they were not sent home, bidding her to tell them to seed the Horses home, left by them they should be betray'd , and that he would no go up to them, because he said it was scandalous house, and the noise of the fact would soon be all over the Town, and there they would be in danger of being apprehended; that she went up stairs, found her Husband, Williams, and Chessey, all over dirt, an like frighted men, busie in opening Letters ; that when she came in her Husband was very angry at her coming, ask'd how she came, she told them Smith had brought her; that then Williams reply'd Why did he not come up? she said, he would not, Williams reply'd, G - A - him ! What, has he put us upon it and now will not be seen in it? That then she went down to Smith, but he would not go up; she asked him what they had done; he answered her, taken the Mail; she asked him, what might be the Consequence (meaning the Advantage;) he reply'd 5 or 6000 l. and she being uneasy he said to her, What need you be uneasy? You will soon be made a Gentlewoman . She depos'd likewise, That he preposed they should carry the Letters into some empty House to open and telling her that he could not attend that Day because he most attend a Law Suit he had. She deposed likewise, that she afterwards saw him look upon a Note which she describ'd and was produc'd in Court, telling him it was a Chequer-Note of 100 l. and also another Paper which he said was as well, and saying he would likewise know the meaning of that too, The Prisoner objected against the Evidence of Holliday's Wife, saying that she was not his Wife, but that he had several in several places, and that Holiday had said, that he must have one in every place to swear for him in case he stood in need of an Evidence. This was return'd upon him that he himself had said, that as to what related to Evidence he could do as much as any body; that he had such Evidences that he could prove himself to be at while he was here. The Prisoner deny'd the Fact entirely, and pleaded in his Defence, That he was not with Holliday's Wife, as she depos'd and had Evidence at hand that depos'd he came to him between 6 and 7 that morning to draw an Affidavit and another that said she saw him in Westminister-Hall at 8 a clock. He made an Improvement likewise, that the Persons were not produced of whom the Horses were hired. He insisted on the Improbability that he should engage in such a Design and have no share of the Booty. He insisted likewise that the Prosecution was set on fact by some Adversaries whom he was suing as Creditor on account of a statute of Bankruptcy taken out against one

<p>THE most excellent BALSAMICK WATER, being the greatest Preservative of Health in Nature, that in 50 Years Study of Physick I could find out, needs not much to be said in its Commendation, for it will recommend it self; and I have no other Interest in making of it Publick, but for the Satisfaction of my Friends, and the general Good of Mankind, and that it may not die with me. I don't (like the English Quack) say that it cures all Distempers ; but it infalbibly keeps the Body in good Health, and defends it from all infections Airs and distempers , by taking 3 Spoonfuls of it in half a Pinc of warm Ale, a Glass of White Wine, Tea, or any other Liquid It may be taken by all Persons, of what Age or Sex soever, at any time of the Day, without Consinement or Hinderance of Business , according to the printed Directions given with it. It prevents Consumptions, and cures them it not too far gone; it relieves the Tiffick and Shortness of Breat; cures in the Lungs, or in any part of the Body; it all ctions, and intallibly all forts or Warms in Young or Old. It cures the Yellow and Black dice, pecty, ltch , and Scald Heads. It certainly eradicates that reigning Distemper the Scurvey; chears the Spirits, strengthens the Stomach, and creates a good Appetite. I recommend it to all Child-bearing Women, it preserving the Insant from those Infirmitics that Children are generally affected with, par the whole Mass of Blood, renders the Skin beautiful and clear, and causes easy Delivery. Likewise I recommend it to Sea-faring Men that Trade to the East or West Indies, or those Countries where Fevers or the Plagne are infections. When all other Remedies fail, this excellent Balsastick Water drives out the Small Pox or Measles, and keeps them from the Stomach or Throat, preventing that Soreness which generally accompanies, and often proves fatal in that Distemper; and also prevents the Small Pox or any other infections Distemper, from Spreading in a Family. It's excellent for Gentlemen after hard Drinking, far exceeding any thing; it discharges the Body from the Imparity of bad Wine, and cleanses it from all Scorbutick Spots, Scane, oritoyls , by bathing outwardly; and cures all Old Sures and Green Wounds, by washing the Place with it; and all sorts of fore Mouths caused by inward Heat or Canker. It is also excellent for all Persons that drink the Waters, causing them to pas . and evacuate whatever Humours offend the Body. This excellent Balsamick Water is put up in half Pint Bottles, at 2 s.6 d. each Bottle, with Directions at large for the Taking and use of it, which being close Stopp'd, retains its Virtue in all Climates; for the older it grows, the better it is: It generally gives one Stool, and works off by Urine. This excellent Balsa Water is made by none but my self: and, to prevent Counterseits , is sold only at Mr. ker's , Book-seller, at the Bible and Crown in Lombard-Street, near Stocks-Market, sealed with a Lin and Dagger.

<p>Whereas several Gentlewomen and others of that Sex, in this Kingdom, here 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 that Part, which being neglected , at last times Cancerous, and often proves Fatal.

I should not have put my self in Publick Print, but to satisfy the Afflicted where they may have present Ease and Relief.</p>
<p>I Testify that my Child was so troubled with Fifts from the very hard Breeding of its Teeth, that its Life was desair'd of; but by only wearing the Celebrated NECKLACE recommended by Dr. Chamberlen for Children's Teeth, it presently recover'd, and is now as well as ever it was in its Life, never having had so much as One Fit after the Necklace was bung about its Neck, and has worn the Necklace now about 9 Months.
