Mr. Smith, the Constable that apprehended him the second Time, deposed, That when he was taken he had 27 counterfeit Shillings found upon him; and that he enquiring of him, whether he was not afraid of being discovered when he was a coining; he answered, that he used to hang a Blanket up against the Door, and when he had done broke the Moulds. The Prisoner denied the Fact intirely, and said, that the counterfeit Shilling which he had when apprehended first, he had took in Holborn in Gaming; and the 27 Shillings which was taken upon him when he was apprehended the second Time, he came by as follows: That he having got away from the Messenger, he was going along St. Paul's Church-Yard, and there met with a Woman, and he had then not one Farthing of Money She gave him the 27 Shillings to hold, saying she would go and buy a Bun or two, and put off some of it, and in the Interim he ran away with it.

But all these Allegations of his were denied by the Persons on whom he fixed the vile Aspersions ; and they being Persons of such Credit on whom they could rely, what he said bore but little Weight with the Jury.

Whereupon he wrote a Letter to the Prisoner, and sent it to him to Newington, about it. Upon which he came to him, and was very full of Reflections upon Mr. Biddle's, and took some notice of Mr. Biddle's charging him with the Expressious mentioned in the Indictment, and owned that he did say, That if Pretender, as he was called, was King James's Son, and was not a Bastard, then King George was an Usurper : To which he replied, That if he persisted in such Talk it might perchance lead him into ill Conveniencies . The Prisoner answered, He did say so, and should say so as long he breathed: To which he replied, That if he did, perhaps he might not breath long. But however his Business with him was not in relation to any thing of that Nature, but that he would pay Biddle his Money. That they then parted.

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="171801100005"/> Pretender was fled beyond the Alps. That thereupon he replied, it was well if the Pretender was a Bastard, or else King George was an Usurper. He likewise objected against the manner of his Commitment, in that Sir John Fryer, when he had been carried before him on the Account of the Note, and the Matter being agreed, and he discharged, and the other Persons, as Mr. Biddle and Mr. Tull, had declined prosecuting him on the Account of these Expressions, that Sir John should send for him again, and oblige them to prosecute him As to that he was answered by the Court,( in Sir John Fryer's hearing, he being on the Bench) that their Opinion did differ from his in that Matter: for as he thought he had done very well, and but what was his Duty to do, for as much as the tolerating Persons to talk after that seditious manner would be of very pernicious Consequence: And that King George's Title to the Crown did not depend upon the Pretender's being a Bastard, for that he had a very good and legal Title to that, whether the Pretender was the Son of King James, or not. He called three Persons one of which had known him six Weeks, another six Months, and another a Year, which indeed did not say much to the purpose. One said he had heard him pray for the King (as he thought) another had known him drink the King's Health: But this had little avail, the Jury thought the Fact plain enough to find him
