He (this Deponent) then went away, and coming that Way again soon after, he found the Deceased lying in the same Place; but neither his Lantern, Staff, nor the Prisoner, were then to be seen there. Other Witnesses confirmed that Particular of the Prisoner's owning that he saw the Deceased fall, and that he (the Prisoner) was a very abusive quarrelsome Fellow. Mr. Keatly the Surgeon depos'd, that on the Wednesday after the Death of the Deceased, (which was on Saturday Night) he view'd the Body, and making an Incision cross wise on the Left Side of the Head, he found a Contusion about the Breadth of a Shilling. He then took off the Pericranium, but found no Fracture in the Skull. There was also a deep Bruise in the Left Shoulder but he thought it very unlikely for a Contusion in that Place to prove mortal. As for the Bruise in the Head, he thought it might probably be the Cause of his Death; but he could not be positive. It appear'd, he said, to be done by a Blow with a Staff: But it being demanded if it was not possible that such a Bruise might be received by a Fall, he answered, Yes.</p>
<p>The Prisoner in his Defence said, that the Deceased had been subject to the Apoplexy; that he had often seen him fall into such a Fitt, and that it was in such a Fitt that he dropt down at Dr. Lad's Door. That soon after, a Gentleman coming up the Yard, he went to light him in at Doors; at which time 2 or 3 Fellows coming out of Holborn, took up the Deceased's Lantern and Staff which stood by him, and ran away with'em, which he (the Prisoner) seeing, ran after'em thro' Magpye-Yard, and cry'd, Stop Thief. They finding that he pursu'd 'em, threw away the Staff and Lantern, and got off. He took 'em up and brought 'em back, which was the Cause of his being seen by several with 2 Staves and 2 Lanterns. Mr. - depos'd, that coming up Castle-Yard, he saw the Prisoner walking about very drunk, and the Deceased lying on Dr. Lad's Steps, whom he at first thought to be drunk too; but the Prisoner assured him that he was really dead. The Prisoner then lighted him to his Door, and 2 or 3 Men coming by the Deceased, took away the Lantern and Staff. The Prisoner pursu'd 'em, and as drunk as he was, brought the Lantern and Staff back again; at which time some other Watchmen (whose Depositions have already been mentioned) met him with the 2 Staves and 2 Lanterns. He added, that he believed that these Words, I'll smash you by G - were spoken by the Prisoner to one of the Men that took the Deceased's Staff and Lantern. Mr. Steel depos'd, that his Boy Jos. Wait had told his Wife, that he knew nothing of the Matter, but gave his Evidence before the Coroner by the Maid Anne Hall's Persuasions: That he knew the Boy to be much addicted to Lying; for which, and some other Misdemeanors, he had since turn'd him away. Anne Hall was then called up again, and said, that as she had no Reason to do it, so she never did, in the least, persuade the Boy to say any thing about it; but that the Boy said she persuaded him, merely to escape a severe Whipping, which his Mistress and young Master threatned him with. The Boy was then called up a second time; He said his Mistress was going to strip him stark naked; and that Robert steel (his young Master) took the Horse-Whip, and Struck him once with it, threatning not only to whip him then in a terrible Manner, but afterwards to send him to Bridewell, except he would confess that the Maid had persuaded him to swear, as he did before the Coroner; and that the Fear of such Treatment made him say any thing that they desired of him.

Some of the Company desired him to be either quiet, or go away; but he continued very troublesome. A Recruit, who was then drinking in the Cellar, stept to him, and thrust him up Stairs. In the Struggle the Prisoner drew his Sword, push'd at the Recruit, and scratched him in the Neck. The Recruit retired, and the Deceased seeing him bleed, went to the Stair foot and called the Prisoner Rogue and Villain, for drawing upon a naked Man. You Black-guard Dog, says the Prisoner, come hither, and I'll serve you the same Sauce. Upon this, the Deceased stept up 2 or 3 Stairs towards the Prisoner, (there being but 7 Stairs in all) and the Prisoner standing at the Top, thrust his Sword down, and stuck it into the Hand of the Deceased, between the 2 Forefingers. The Prisoner then went away, but returned several times that Night to the Stair Head, calling'em ill Names, flourishing his Sword, and swearing that he would stab every one of them. The Deceased received this Wound about 7 of the Clock on Monday Night. They washed it with Geneva; his Hand swell'd, and was very painful. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, he went to a Surgeon, who dressed it, and gave him something to bathe it. The Surgeon depos'd, that he saw the Deceased no more till the Sunday following, at which time he died of a Fever; but could not say that the Wound was the Cause of the Fever and consequently of his Death. Another Surgeon open'd the Wound after his Death, but said, that he did not believe it to be mortal. The Prisoner in his Defence said, that the Recruit struck him first kickt him, and thrust him up Stairs, the Decreased and others followed with Broomsticks to drive him away. Upon which, he was forced to draw in his own Defence, but did not know how the Decreased happened to receive that Wound; and that the Deceased afterwards receiv'd a great Hurt by falling down Stairs with a Barrel of Beer. Several Witnesses depos'd, that they saw the Deceased 2 or 3 days after he received the Wound, going about his Business as usual. That having a Barrel of Beer on his Shoulder, he fell down, and the Barrel rolled over him: Upon which he cry'd out to his Wife, O! my Dear, I am gone!

He was a second time indicted on the Coroner's Inquisition for Manslaughter. Major Nortliffe depos'd, that on the 6th of Dec. himself, Mr. Olivant, Mr. Lewis, and some other Gentlemen, dined at Mr. Lewis's Lodgings, at Charing-Cross. After Dinner they went to Young Man's Coffee house and from thence to the Mitre Tavern, to take a Parting Glass; for Mr. Olivant (who was an Officer in General Evans's Regiment of Dragoons) was to go the next day for Dorchester. They drank pretty briskly, and all appeared friendly and pleasant. About 11 o'Clock, part of the Company went away, and only Mr. Olivant, Mr. Lewis and himself, were left together. Soon after they were gone, Mr. Lewis desired Mr. Olivant to pay him 53 l. that he ow'd him. Mr. Olivant express'd a Surprize, that his intimate Friend should, without giving him any previous Notice, make such a Demand, at a time, when it could not be thought, that he should have such a Sum about him; and added, that as he was obliged to go out of Town the next day, he could not possibly have Time to provide the Money; but he would either remitt the Sum to him when he came to the Regiment, or give him a Note for Value upon a Relation, payable in London. Neither of these Proposals would satisfy the Deceased for he
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="172501150006"/> still insisted upon present Payment. He, this Evidence, then told him, that he himself would discharge the Debt the very next day, if Mr. Olivant would give him a Note to pay the same Sum at six Months after Date. To this they both acquiesced and appeared to be good Friends again. And then he, this Evidence, fell asleep, but was suddenly awaked by a Quarrel betwixt the other two. He looked up, and saw that the Deceased had left his Place, and was gone round the Table to Mr. Olivant, at whom he that instant made a Pass with his drawn Sword, which the other put by with his Hand, and by that means received a Wound. He got up to part them; but before he could effect it, they closed, and fell down, Mr. Lewis under Mr. Olivant; and then he saw Mr. Olivant's drawn Sword upon the Ground, which he did not see before.

About 12 o'Clock, he heard a Disturbance, ran up, and found the Deceased and Mr. Olivant upon the Ground, the former being undermost. He and the Major's Servant, who followed him, help'd 'em up, and then he ran for a Surgeon. At his Return, he found them in another Room. The Deceased was lying upon a Bed, and Mr. Olivant said to him, Dear Lewis, I am afraid you are a dying Man; My Life is at Stake. I beg you to speak what you know. Was not your Sword drawn first? The Deceased answered, Ay, Ay, I forgive you freely, and then killed Mr. Olivant. This Evidence farther said, that the Room in which the Misfortune happened, was very small, and except the Deceased had risen from his Seat, and gone round the Table to Mr. Olivant, it was hardly possible for them to have fallen together in the Place and Manner that he found them in.

<p>Mr. Olivant in his Defence made no material Variation from the Account that Major Nortliffe had already given, but added, that when the Major was asleep, the Deceased started up from his Seat, drew his Sword, came round the Table, and push'd at him two or three times; and the Room being very narrow, and the Door opening inwards, he could not retreat without manifest Danger of his Life, which put him under a Necessity of defending himself, the Consequence of which proved very unhappy; tho' at the same time he was ignorant when or how the Deceased received the Wound. Dr. Furlong deposed, that after the Deceased was wounded, Mr. Olivant laid his Hand upon his Shoulder, and said, Lewis, Lewis, Was not you the Aggressor ? And the Deceased answer'd, I forgive you; 'twas all fair. Mrs. Carter at the Mitre Tavern depos'd, that coming into the Room where the Deceased lay wounded, Mr. Olivant said to the Company, Take Notice of what he says; and then turning to the Deceased, he said, Did not you draw first?

Col. Lanoe, in the Behalf of Mr. Olivant, deposed, that he knew him to be a Man of a pleasant, even Temper, and that the Deceased more the opposite Character, he frequently being (especially when in Drink ) very troublesome in the Regiment. Many other Persons of Distinction were ready to appear in Favour of Mr. Olivant; but the Court thought it unnecessary.
