He (this Evidence) knockt Lloyd down, and seized Jones by the Collar. Loyd got up again and ran away, but being followed with a Cry, stop Thief, he was soon taken by John Pitman an Excise Officer, who was then on Duty. The other two escaped. Lloyd confessed in the Watch-house, and before the Justice, that he was in Company with the other three when the Robbery was committed, and that they all agreed to take the Wig. He promised the Prosecutor, that if he would be favourable, he should have the Wig again; and accordingly the Wig was soon after sent by the Penny Post, with the following Note: Sir, enclosed is Richard's Wig that was lost, which you are desired to give him forthwith, from your Servant unknown, A. B. The latter Part of this Evidence was corroborated by Watmore and Pitman. The Prisoner Jones, in his Defence said, that he met Page accidentally in Bishopsgate-street; and having been formerly acquainted with him, (tho' not knowing that he followed ill Courses) they resolved to drink together, when it unluckily happen'd that neither of them had got any Money: But however, rather than two old Friends should part with dry Lips, Page very generously pawn'd his Wastecoat, in Hounsditch for three Shillings, and away they went to spend it at the London Spaw, where the Prosecutor lived. Here they met with Lloyd and Kemp, the Latter of whom, as they were going Home together, snatch'd off the Prosecutor Wig, and ran away. Lloyd said in his Defence, that he had formerly lived a Servant at the Maidenhead at Windmill-Hill; but being out of Place, he went with Kemp to the London-Spaw to enquire after a Service: That when they came from the Spaw he and Jones pass'd the Prosecutor, to whom he heard Page (who was a little behind) say, Honestly, will you give me a Pot? The Prosecutor answered, Not so much Honesty as you think for. At this Discourse he turned back, when Kemp said, Let us take his Wig off. He (this Prisoner) asked him why he would do so? But Kemp, without making any Reply, did what he proposed, and ran away. The Jury found them both

Mr. Larouche in Round-Court, with whom the Deceased lodged, depos'd, that about Midnight the Deceased was brought home in a Chair, very drunk, and dangerously wounded. The next day in the Afternoon, he asked him if he and the Prisoner were sober when they went to the Tavern together? No, said the Deceased, but we were sober when we first met at the Coffee-house; - We went from thence to the Tavern on purpose to fight; - I believe we were both in Fault; - I believe I drew first.</p>
<p>The Prisoner in his Defence said, that when they came from the Coffee-house, the Deceased desired him to go to the Three Tuns, where he said he had appointed to meet a Gentleman. He went with him; but finding nobody there, he drank once, and was for going away; but the Deceased drew upon him, and bid him go to Hell. He retreated, and in so doing stumbled over some Faggots that lay in the Room. The Deceased follow'd him, and put him under a Necessity of using his Sword in his own Defence. Mr. Hains depos'd, that he was in Company with Brigadier Wilson (the Prisoner) in an open Room at Sturges's Coffee-house, where they had a Pint of Rum made into Punch. When they had drank it, they came down Stair, and were going out together: But the Deceased, who sate below, call'd out, Mr. Wilson, come and drink with me; pray stay and drink with me; and repeating his Entreaties several times, the Prisoner at last went to him. They then appear'd to be very good Friends, and to this Evidence left them. He farther depos'd, that he had known the Prisoner five Years, and always found him good-natur'd and peaceable even in his Drink, and so far from being quarrelsome himself, that he was remarkably diligent in reconciling Differences among others. Mr. Thornton the
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="172502240004"/> Apothecary depos'd, that being sent for to the Deceased about 11 at Night, he heard him say, Die or Live, 'tis my own Fault; I drew first and forced him to it: The Brigadier drew in his own Defence and therefore I desire you all to take Notice of what I have said. This was wrote down, and read over to the Deceased he said it was right, and pray'd all that were present to sign it; which they did, and he acknowledg'd the same the next Day: It was produced in Court, and confirmed by the Subscribers. Major Wright, Capt. Batson, Capt Moreton, and Capt. Parker, gave the Prisoner the Character of a Man of an even Temper, never known to be passionate; and that contary-wise, the Deceased was very apt to be quarrelsome in his Drink. Many others were ready to appear in his Favour; but the Court thought it needless. The Jury found it

We not liking their Company, went from thence to the Blind Beggar of Bednal-Green, where we staid till it was late. It was a Moon-Light-Night. We came away together, and at the End of Greybound-Lane, Wright met me, and stopt me, and hollowed for his Companion, who started from behind us. I knock'd Wright down; upon which, his Companion threw a Brick-Bat at us, and ran away. I ask'd Wright why he stopt me? Gentlemen, says he, if you knew but my Necessity, you would not blame me for going upon the Highway. My Wife is ready to Lie-in, and I have not a Farthing as myself or her. For God's Sake let me go. I told him I would first know who his Companion was. He refused to name him for a long time; but as last, threatning to carry him to the Watch-house, he said it was Munday. Some People who lived there-abouts, looked out of their Windows, heard this and a great deal more. One of them bid us search him to see if he had any Pistols about him; which we did, but found none.

Who was your Companion that threw the Brick-Bat, and ran away? He made no Answer; they beat him, and then he said in a muttering Voice, (as if he was afraid of being known by his Tongue.) Well!

Isaac Woodburn depos'd thus. On Tuesday the 26th of Jan. about 8 at Night, the Prisoner came to my House, (the Queen's-Head Tavern on Tower-Hill) He called for Wine, and ordered a Chicken to be broil'd for Supper. When he had done eating, he asked me if I could change him a Bank Bill, for he said he was obliged to go out of Town next Morning before the Bank would be open, and he should have Occasion for a little ready Money. The Bill was Numb. 10. dated the 23d of Jan 1724. for 70 l. payable to Sam. Brooks, or Bearer. Not having so much Cash by me at that time, I sent my Drawer with the Bill to Mr. Green, a Goldsmith in the Minories, who returned Word, that he believed that the Bill was very good, and he would have changed it with all his Heart; but it happened that he had just before paid away a large Sum, and was unprovided. I shew'd it to a Club of Gentlemen that were then in my House; none of them could give me Money for it; but they all agreed that it was good. I carried the Bill again to the Prisoner, and told him I could not get it chang'd. He told me I need not be afraid, for the Bill was good; it was taken out in his own Name, which was Sam. Brooks; that he had three new Houses in Chiswel-street, and he lived in one of them, which was opposite the Tobacco-Roll: And then he asked me what Money I had in the House. I told him I could give him a 50 l. Bank Bill, 10 l. in Cash, and a Note on Demand for the other 10 l. He told me that would do very well. I called my Drawer to be a Witness, and gave the Prisoner the 50 l. Bill, and 10 l. in Money. But he told me, that since what they did was before Witness, he would not give me the Trouble of writing a Note for the Remaining 10 l. but he would take my Word, and call for it in two or three Days. He called for a Coach, (No 370) and ordered the Coachman to drive him to Chiswell-street, and I saw him no more till the 7th of Feb. when hearing that he was in the new Jail in Southwark, I went thither to pay him a Visit. On Wednesday, the Day after he was at my House, I sent my Servant to the Bank with the Prisoner's Bill, to receive 50 l. of the 70 l. which was readily paid him. And the next day, I sent him again for the remaining 20 l. which he also received. Most of this Evidence was confirm'd by

(which was the Day after the Prisoner took it of Woodburn). This was mentioned as a Circumstance of the Prisoner's knowing the 70 l. Bill to be alter'd; for else he might have sent that as well as the other; and if he had gone a Journey that Morning, he would have been as much hindred in waiting to receive the 50 l. as in waiting to receive 70 l. It appear'd that that Bill was so nicely alter'd, that it was not mistrusted even at the Bank, till they came to examine their Books, and then they found that there was no Bill payable to

<p>It appeared that the Prisoner went afterwards to the Fountain Tavern in the Borough.

The Drawer carry'd it to several Gentlemen in the House, but none of them could change it. The Chester Man being robb'd but a little before, and the Oddness of the Prisoner's offering a Gratuity to the Drawer, began at last to raise a suspicion in some or them, that this Bill was taken from thence. Away the Drawer was sent to the Bank, but he came too late to receive the Money for it: However, they told him it was good, and if he came the next day, they'd pay him. From thence he went to the Post Office, but could make no Discovery. In the mean while, the Prisoner appeared very uneasy, and ask'd Mr. Parks(the Master of the Tavern) if his Drawer was honest; and told him, that if a Drawer proves a Rogue in such a Case the Money will be expected from his Master. The Prisoner still being suspected, he was taken into Custody till farther Enquiry could be made.
