<p>The Marquess when he came to make his Defence, having an Interpreter allow'd him (who was sworn for that purpose) pleaded total Innocence as to the Murder of John Niccalo, saying, he had no Ill-will against him, nor had any Cause; and if he had, he had another way of punishing him, which was by Martial Law, he being his Servant and a Soldier of his own Troop. He then owned they did go out together in the Morning; that they went to the other side of the Water, and coming back in the Evening went to a Tavern near Lincolns Inn Fields and supped, about 8 of the Clock; that they went away together, and Niccalo went along with him as far as home, and asked him at the Door to let him step some where and he would return presently, so he went to bed without Niccalo's putting him to bed, and never saw him since. Being ask'd by the Court, why he told the Maid that Niccalo put him to bed? He denied he ever said so. Being ask'd by the Court how he came to go so suddenly to bed without Attendance, Light, Fire, or his Bed made? He answer'd there was a Fire that gave him Light, and that the Bed was made. Tho' the Maid being examined again as to that Matter, she swore the Bed wasnot made, nor was there any Fire that gave any manner of Light. But at last he grew unsatisfied with his Interpreter, affronting him, so that he frequently desired the Court to excuse him from the Office, saying, that he did not like him because he did not make an Appearance great enough for him. But the Court being very well satisfied with his Capacity for the Office, thought it needless to do, till at last by the unhandsome Carriage of the Prisoner, and the frequent Request of the Gentleman who they had appointed to be his Interpreter, they did condescend to gratify them both, and prevailed with a Worthy Justice of the Peace to humour the Marquess so far as to be his Interpreter, with whom he seemed to be a little better pleased, and made the Defence following. That had he not been innocent of the Murther of Niccalo, he would not have staid to be taken, for that his Sister the Dutchess of Shrewsbury sent him 50 Guineas and some Jewels to have made his Escape, and added, that when he and his Man came from the other side of the Water they went to the Tavern in Lincolns Inn Fields, and that there he sent out for some Gentlewomen, and that he went along with them in a Coach, and being about half way his Man Niccalo desired him to let him go somewhere and he gave him leave, and he never saw him since. And some other Questions being put to him by the Court, he said he did not know what became of his Man; for the People of the Tavern in Lincolns Inn Fields well knew that his Man Niccalo was enquired for there, and went away, and they knew better what became of him than he did. And thus he contradicted himself three or four several times.

I had the Adv ice of several eminent Physicians and Surgeons, who by the various removings of my Distempers, knew not what to call it, yet order'd me Medicines, but to no Purpose. About three Years ago I went to St. Batholomew's Hospital , and was an Out Patient several Months, where the Physicians told me it was violent GOUT, but could have no Ease. Having thus had the Advice of the Learned without Success, I began to hearken to every bodies Instructions, sending for and taking all the Medicines I could hear off. And as the Expence was large, so was their number I think innumerable , which only added to my Misfortune, not hearing of any Person so violently afflicted as my self. Being in this miserable Conditions, and given over by all articurable, the Gout still increasing so violently, that my Joints became so Knitted, that I was render'd quite unable to follow my Business, and difficult to all some time ago , I was recommended by a Gentleman to the Anti-Arthritick Medicines mention'd in a new System of the GOUT and RHEUMATISM, gives gti Up one Pair of Stairs at the Sign of the Anodyne.</p>
<p>NECKLACE, without Temple-Bar. I had not taken above two Days before I found a great Alteration. The GOUT, which was then in my Stomach, abaied , and by a Continuance of those Remedies I still grew sensibly better every Day: so that I am now free from all Pains and Suffress in my Joints, and as well in Health and Strength as ever I was in my Life. This Benefit I have received by God's Blessing: and those i e. inable Remedies being so very great. I desire this may be published for the Good of others . The Irish of which I am eay to testify, living in Printing House-street in Black Fryers .</p>
