Two other Evidences confirm'd his having own'd the taking the Money, at several Times. The Prisoner pleaded, That he having had Money of his Mother to lay up, his Mother suspecting him, tax'd him with robbing him; and after using Many Menaces, threatned to send him to Newgate; he being terrified, that he might not be sent to Newgate, he did confess the taking of about 27 s. but his Master still threatning to send him to Newgate, telling him his former Confession would not do, he did, by Direction of those about him, write upon a Piece of Paper, as he thinks to the Value of 3 l. 6 s. although he never wrong'd him of any Thing.

The Prisoner call'd several credible Persons to his Reputation, who gave him an extraordinary Character, as an honest, industrious, young Man. The Master and Mistress being examin'd, deny'd their terrifying him into a Confession, except that in finding the Key that would open his Trunk, he did say to him, You Villain, I am afraid this Key will bring you to Newgate.

The Prosecutor depos'd, That the Prisoners came to his House one Night when he and his Wife were Abroad, and went up stairs, and that there they took his Buckles out of his Shoes, and that they were delivered to him afterwards by Daniel Soams. That when he, being at a Neighbour's House a drinking, came home, and being told by a little Boy, that Quilt Arnold took his Buckles out of his Shoes, and asking by what Authority they came there, Arnold reply'd, That they had Authority from Mr. Wild to take up the Prosecutor's Brother, who had forg'd a Note of 9 Guineas in his Name; that their Authority was such, they would have broken open the Door if they could. That his Door had been tampered with, and sending for the Smith to open the Door, a Key had been broken in it. This in part, was confirm'd by another Evidence. Soams pleaded, That he was desired by Mr. Wild to take one Bellamy, the Prosecutor's Brother, who had forg'd a Note of 9 Guineas in his Name; that going up to the Garret, and his Shoes standing there, Arnold said, he was in the Room, and seeing also his Clothes, he would have taken them; but took the Buckles out of the Prosecutor's Shoes, and push'd them upon him, and when the Prosecutor came and enquir'd for his Buckles, he gave them to him. Arnold pleaded, That be being drinking at an Ale-House, Mr. Wild desir'd him to go along with the Prisoner Soams to apprehend the Prosecutor's Brother, who he had been inform'd had forg'd a Note of 9 Guineas in Mr. Wild's Name, and that a Boy going up with them said, if he was not within, he was not far off, for there was his Shoes, and brought them to him; that Soams took the Buckles, and would have given them to him, but he return'd them to him again. Mr. Wild depos'd, That a Person came to him, informing him, That one Bellany, who it appears to be the Prosecutor's Brother, had forg'd a Receipt in his Name, and he, upon that, resolving to get him apprehended in order to bring him to Justice, the Prisoner Soams came and undertook to get him secur'd, upon which he sent the Prisoner Arnold with him to have got him secur'd, but gave no Order for the Searching the House. That their having enter'd the House rashly, and the taking away the Buckles, he could not justify that; but, that the Prisoner Arnold had been assisting with him in the apprehending One Hundred and Fifty Persons, the greater Number of which had been prosecuted according to Law; that he had been with him in the Houses of Persons, where were Things of very great Value, and never had known him guilty of taking any Thing.

The Prosecutor depos'd, That he having been in the Service of Merchant Forward, had been to receive his Money for the Voyage; and as he was going in Stepney Fields, near the Half-way House, met with the Prisoner, who ask'd him to spend a Penny with her, that thereupon he went in to the Yard of the Half-way-House with her, and far down in one of the Boxes, where they drank a Pot of Drink, and a Bottle and Pint; that he taking out his Pouch, where in were both his Tobacco and Money, to fill a Pipe, the Prisoner had the Opportunity of seeing his Gold, that having fill'd his Pipe he put his Pouch again into his Pocket; and having stay'd there drinking with the Prisoner about Half an Hour, he paid the Reckoning, having other Money in his Pocket, and came away, the Prisoner going out of the Door that was towards London, and he at that towards Stepney; and in a Minute's Time feeling for his Pouch, miss'd it, and returned back immediately, but could not get sight of her; but enquiring of the People of the House, had an Account of her, but could never light on her till a Month after, that he heard she was committed to New Prison for another Fact. He was positive the Prisoner must take his Pouch and Money, he being at that Time very sober, and there being no Person in this Company but the Prisoner, who sat by him in the Box, tho' he had no Familiarity with her, but in the way of Talk and Drinking together, thinking it to be an Act of Charity to give her a Pot of Drink, and that he did not so much as kiss her Lips, nor feel her any where at all, while they were together, but he did suppose she took the Pouch as they were rising up to go away. The Prisoner's Defence was, That as she was going along the Back Lane from Rag Fair, with a Basket of Oysters, the Prosecutor took her hold by her Arm, telling her, she was very like a young Woman whom he Courted seven Years ago, and would have had her gone in with him no drink at the Sign of the Ship, but she refus'd; that he still went along with her, and offer'd her two Shillings to let him lie with her, but she would not consent to any such Thing, upon which the Prosecutor abus'd her, and threw down her Basket of Oysters, calling her Names, telling her he had been with a Bitch that had robb'd him of his Money; and if she would not let him he with her, he would swear the Robbery to her. But the Prosecutor deny'd all she said, and that she had any Oysters or Basket either. She not being able to give any Proof of what she said, or to call any one Person to her Reputation, the Jury found her

That he replied, What need of that? there were more Masters than Parish Churches. That the next Time he saw him he asked him, How he came off? To which he answer'd him, very well. And he reply'd again, He was glad of it. That afterwards standing at a Cobler's Door, the Prisoner Whiteing ask'd him to go with him to buy some Leather to mend his Shoes; that he went with him, and they went in to Drink, and that he told him, he could get 500 l. if he and another, meaning Mackey, would assist him in the Affair. That he then ask'd him, how he could get to much Money? That he told him it might be done very easily; and that afterwards they all being drinking together in a private Room in an Alehouse, they consulted about the Matter. That Whiting told them, young Mr. Saunderson was coming out of the Country with 200 l. and there was two or 300 Pounds in Place, and the Method proposed by Whiteing for doing it, was this. Mackey being a

That they asked Whiteing, if they got this Booty. How they must dispose of themselves and it; and Whiteing said, they would go to New England, he knew the way thither; that they would go down to Portsmouth, and thence into the Isle of Wight, and would melt down the Plate, which he knew how to do. That after two or three Consultations, the Matter was resolved upon, and Whiteing appointed them to come about twelve a Clock at Night, and that they might not mistake the Door, mark'd it with Chalk. That thereupon he, this Evidence, and Mackey, did about twelve a Clock go to the Prosecutor's House, but Mackey refus'd to go in as he supposed, for fear of being taken. That he himself went to the Door, and Mackey stood at a distance off in the Fields. That Whiteing the Footman opened the Door, and brought out to him the Plate bundled up in a Coat, that appear'd in Court to be Mr. Saunderson's. That then he gave him also a pair of pistols, bidding him take care of them, for he should have Occasion for them. That then he went away into Lincoln's Inn Fields, and not seeing Mackey at the place, thought he had been gone, but after calling him two or three Times he came, and he told him he had got something, asking him to go along with him; and they did go out into the Fields, and stay'd there till Break of Day, where they opened them, and having seen whit there was, made the best of their Way to Portsmouth, where they were apprehended.</p>
<p>Mr. Lake, a Goldsmith at Portsmouth, depos'd That Mackey brought to him part of the Gripe of a Silver Hilted Sword, which he bought of him; and the-next Day came again; and talked, to him about buying Silver, asking him, What he would give an Ounce? And, whether he would give most for it in Form, or melted down? That he asking several impertinent Questions; and he, this Evidence, having been that Morning at the Coffee-House, and seen the Advertisement of Mr. Saunderson's Robbery, had some Suspicion of the Prisoner; and endeavouring to get what he could out of him, enquired how he came by it. To which he answered, he came home in that Ship which had brought home the resolutions, and that was part of his Plunder. He told the Prisoner Mackey, That there was a Neighbour over the Way who had lost some Plate, and he must him to stay till he had sent for his Neighbour, and sent for Mr. Harman, who was a Justice of the Peace, who examining him, finding his Account was inconsistant, and that he could not tell the Name of the Captain, Lieutenant, or any of the Officers of the Ship he said, he belong'd to, committed him to Prison. And having taken Notice of some Expression, of having another Person who was concern'd in the Silver, he talk'd to him about buying of, and some Hints whereabout, he lodg'd, they went, and found him out, and being inform'd by the Landlady. That they always kept their Chamber Door lock'd, and would not permit any Body to go into it, it strengthened their Suspicion; and having apprehended him, demanded Entrance into his Room to search, whereupon he was showing them into another Room. of the same Floor; the Landlady told them, that was not his Room, but the next they searched all about but could find nothing, till examining an old Chest of Drawers, in the bottom Drawer, which being so heavy with the Plate, that without Difficulty they could not get it out; but having at last done it, they found the Plates. That thereupon they were committed to Winchester Goal, and Notice was sent to the Prosecutor, The Plate was produc'd in Court, and the Pistols, and other Goods, and sworn to by the Prosecutor.</p>

Mackey pleaded, That he was not consenting nor assisting in the Robbery, only having been drinking and walking with Wilkinson, he desir'd him to stay in Lincoln's Inn fields, while he stepp'd a little Way to speak with one, and knew not that he went to commit the Robbery, nor when he came back what he had; but along him to go along with him, he carried him out into the Fields two or three Miles off. Whiting's Confession was read in Court; and what both had confess'd after them Apprehending was depos'd in Court. The Fact being fully prov'd upon them both, the Jury found them
