On Sunday Morning he went out, and some time afterwards his Wife went to see for him, and at her Return told me that she found him in Company with some ill Women at Roper's, a lewd Alehouse in Pye-Corner, He came back at Night, and calling to me from the Stairs-foot, Is my Bitch above? Says he. If she is, send her down with a Candle. She beg'd me to go down with her, for fear he should abuse her. I went; He beat her, damn'd her for a Bitch, and swore he'd murder her. She ran out, and he after her; but she got out of his Sight, and came back again without any further Hurt. Pray, Landlady, says she, if he comes again, tell him that I am not here; for if he finds me, he'll certainly be way Death. I hid her behind my Bed. He came; I deny'd her; he swore, and went to Bed. When his wife thought he was asleep, she went into his Room to see how much he had spent of the Seven Shillings he took with him in the Morning. She came up, and said, I have found but Three-Halfpence; I am afraid he'll murder me, for he has found his Knife that I hid in my Box; it lies by his Bed-side with a Bull's Pizzle. Next Morning I went into his Room, and took the Bull's Pizzle out of the Chair. He jump'd out of Bed, snatch'd it from me, and swore that he valu'd his Pizzle as he valu'd his life, and he'd as soon lose an Inch of one as t'other; for he kept it on purpose to pizzle the Bitch his Wife. I left him; he dress'd himself, came out of the Chamber, lock'd the Door, and went away. His Wife between 6 and 7 in the Evening persuaded me to go with her to see for him at the Alehouse in Py-Corner: We went, found him there, and he was as good as his Word in exercising his Bull's Pizzle upon her. I left her, and she follow'd me in a quarter of an Hour. I blamed her, as her Life was in Danger, for not securing him, as he had been secured before in New-prison for abusing her. He came home soon after, and said I will make you, know, you Bitch that you shall follow me any more, for I am marry'd to little Jenny. Well, Davis, said she, if it is so, I can't help it; but neverthless, let us drink together and be Friends, for there's none in Heaven, or Earth beneath, that I love better than you; and therefore be married to who you will there's nobody shall enjoy you has myself.

She went; but it was not long before she came back with her Hand bloody, told me that he had cut her Fingers, and beg'd me to leave my Chamber Door open, that if he came home and offer'd to abuse her, she might run in there and save her Life. He came before I was gone to Bed, and in his usual Language call'd to his Wife to bring him a Candle. She went to him, and I went to Bed. I heard him swearing at her upon the Stairs, she at the same time begging him to be reconciled, and be Friends with her. At last she ran up into my Room, and he after her, with his Butcher's Knife in his Hand; and there, without any Provocation given him, I saw him slab her into the Breast. I jump'd out of Bed; she ran down Stairs; he after her, and I after him: He miss'd her, and I found her at a Neighbour's House, where she died about 12 o'Clock, which was about half an Hour after the received the Wound.</p>

I was going to Bed between 11 and 12 o'Clock, when I heard a Disturbance in her Room, and a Noise of two or three People running down Stairs. I ran down too, and open'd my Door, to see what was the Matter. The Moon shone on one side of the Way, but the other was shaded by the Houses. The Deceased came to my Door, which was in the Shade, crying she was stab'd, and beg'd me to let her in, when Immediately I saw a Man run from the shady side into the Moon-light, with a naked Knife in his Hand, which I then thought appear'd bloody. I took the Deceased in; she sat down upon some Leaf Tobacco, and show'd me her Wound; but I could not bear to look on it. Mrs. Tindall and some other Neighbours came in. The Deceased cry'd, He has killed me; for God's Sake, call somebody to seize him, and don't let my Blood lie at your Doors. He runs about (says one of the Neighbours) with a Knife in his Hand, and swears, that he'll kill the first Man that touches him. He was brought in soon after by the Comfortable and Watch, and looking upon his Wife, Ha! says he, she is not dead yet. - Betty! speak to me! I am afraid, says I, you'll find to your Sorrow that she will not live much longer: The Lord give you a Heart to repent. Well, says he, I know I shall be hang'd, and I had as live be hang'd for her as for any body. A Surgeon was called, but to no purpose, for she died in about half an Hour. Gill the constable depos'd, that the Prisoner said, as he was going to New-Prison, I have kill'd the best Wife that ever Man lay by; I know I shall be hang'd; but, for God'd Sake, don't let me be Anatomized. Kilpatrick the Surgeon depos'd, that he searched the Wound, and believed it be the Cause of her Death. The Jury brought in their Verdict

When she came back, she said, Did not you hear me cough? Yes. I thought so; and yet I stuff'd a Handkerchief into my Mouth to prevent it, and then I crept in upon my Hands and Knees. The Company could not imagine what the Woman meant by such odd Expressions, till the Prosecutor came home and miss'd his Nest of drawers. She was the next day examined, and confest the Fact, and where she had carried the Goods and Money.

John Wilmar thus deposed: I came to London with nine Horses, and sold seven of them, and had all the Money in my Pocket, being betwixt 40 and 50 l. I had been in the Borough, and was going home to my Lodging at the Corner of Hyde-Park: It was then about Eight at Night, and I enquired the Way as I went along; and somewhere about the Strand I met the Prisoner, and she told me, she'd shew me the Way if I'd give her a Pint of Wine; and so we went together to the Tavern, and instead of one Pint we had four or five. About Eleven o'Clock, I was pretty well tired, and so fell asleep. The Drawer awaked me, and made me feel if I had not lost my Money; and when I felt, I miss'd a great Part of it.</p>

My Master don't allow Women to go up Stairs; but they looking like civil People, I thought there might be no Hurt in it. They call'd for three Pints of Wine; by which time, I saw enough in their Behaviour to convince me that she was a Woman of the Town. The Man grew drowsy. Honest Friend, says I to him, have a Care what you do; and have a Care of your Money, if you have any about you Money! says he, Yes, I have 40 l. and more, and so let us have t'other Pint. They had it, and afterwards call'd for another, which I brought them; but in the interim, I made several Excuses to go into the Room, that she might have as little Opportunity as possible of being too free with either his Person or Pocket. She call'd to pay. The Reckoning was 5 s. 2 d. The Man was asleep; and she gave me 27 s. (a Guinea and Silver.) I thought she had made some mistake, and ask'd her if she knew what she had given me. Pish is the Man a Fool? says she, and wink'd upon me; Don't you know your Business Can't you take the Money and be quiet? I still refused it; and her pressing me to take it, gave me a strong suspicion that she had pick'd the Countryman's Pocket, and so I told her: She grew angry, and would have gone away; but I was resolved to keep her till I had awaked him, and made him examine his Pockets; which, when he had done, he found that she had pretty well emptied'em. I sent a Porter for the Beadle, who carry'd her to the Round-House.</p>
<p>- Halliwell the Constable thus deposed: I stript her at the Round-House, and search'd her in every Place. Two Crowns were found in her Stockings, two Moidores in her Hands, several Guineas, a Half-Guinea, a Half-Crown, and a Ring with a Stone and six Sparks in her Pocket, and as many other Guineas in her Bosom, as made up 20 l. 13 s.</p>
<p>The Prisoner thus made her Defence: I met the Prosecutor in the Strand; he took hold of me, and said I should go and take a Glass with him; but I refus'd and got past him, and was in Hopes to have been troubled with him no more; but he turn'd back, and follow'd me to Temple-Bar. At last, with great Importunity, and much against my Will, I went with him to the Tavern, where we had five Pints of Wine. He press'd me to go to his Lodgings at the White House in Piccadilly, and he with him all Night, and from thence with him into the Country; but I told him I was no such Person. My Dear, says he, if you will but go, you shall want for nothing: I have Money enough, and don't value 30 or 40 l. and if you think I won't be as good as my Word, I'll give it you now. And so he pull'd out his money and threw it into my Lap. And I am so far from being guilty of this that. I am now charged with, that I never did an ill thing in my life.</p>
<p>- Rimmington, a Barber, and his Mother, at the Perriwig in Black-Fryers, thus deposed: We have known the Prisoner ever since she came from Sunderland, which was above twelve Years ago, for she was a Lodger in our House. She has had three Husbands; two of them are dead, and we saw her marry'd to this third, who is now living; he is a Taylor and a Soldier. She has two Children alive: She has been an industrious Wife, and used to assist her Husband in his Business. She always behaved herself civilly; no Company came to her; and she was never out of her Lodging after Ten o'Clock.

Whereupon, I began to think with myself, This wicked Jade puts upon me, because she sees that I am a Man in Tears, and don't much care to have the thing known; but that shan't save her, for I'll tell my Wife of it myself. So home I goes, and tells her that I had committed a great Fault, which I was very sorry for, but I would make her Amends for time to come; and then I let her know the whole Concern. Mrs. Odell thus depos'd; I went with my Husband to the Prisoner, and demanded his Watch.

I gave her a Strict Charge never to open the Parlour Windows in a Morning before some other of the Family were come down Stairs, for fear some valuable Goods which I had there might be lost. But the Morning in which I was robbed, she got up earlier than ordinary, and opened the Parlour Windows betwixt 5 and 6, which was soon after the Watchman went off. I had a little black Girl in the House, and the Prisoner sent her into the Kitchen to light a Fire, which was not usual. My Daughter coming down Stairs, the Prisoner heard her, and cry'd out, Thieves! The House is robb'd! One of the Slashes was thrown up, and the Window Cushion was sandy, but seemed rather to be thrown on for a Pretence, than to be the real Mark of a Foot that had entred at the Window. Most of the Prisoner Sarah's Cloaths were sent away just before this Robbery, the Prisoner William being the Person that brought Sarah to me, and pass'd for her Father. I took an Officer and searched his House, where we found a Cambrick Handkerchief and a Sheet of mine, but cannot be positive that they were lost at the same time as I lost the Candlestick.

When I came up again, I miss'd the Silver Branch out of the Parlour. I was frightned, and screamed out, and just at that instant my young Mistress came down.

I question'd the Prisoner about it. He told me it I was uneasy, he would quickly bring some of his Neighbours to his Reputation, for he lived but hard-by. In about half an Hour he returned with two Women, who said that he was a very honest Man, and that it was his Business to buy old Silver. This did not satisfy me. I charged a Constable with him, and forthwith wrote to Mr. Walden, advising him that I had stopt a Piece of Plate, but neither mentioned that it was a Tankard, nor what Marks it had. He returned me an Answer the next Post, that he had lost a Tankard of such a Weight, such Marks, and described the suspected Person: All which Particulars agreed with the Prisoner and this Tankard.</p>

He consulted with me about a proper Person, and or last we pitched upon Baron Suosso-Accordingly, on the 27th of January, he sends for me to the Sum Alehouse in King's-Court, where, when I came, he agreed to write a Letter to the said Baron, demanding 27 l. to be paid to me; called for Pen, Ink and Paper, and began to write; but when he had wrote three or four Words, he did not like the Ink, for it was very yellow.

He sealed it up, and gave it me to carry to the Penny Post Office. I accordingly carry'd it to Mr. Tenant's, a Distiller's Shop, the Corner of Bridges-Street, in Russel-street. Since which, he enquired of me several time if I had received no Answer; and I told him that I had heard nothing. But not long after, a Man came about Noon to enquire for me at the Alehouse, while I was there. I being a little in Debt, was afraid that it was a Balliff, and so slipt out and went home. The Man came again at Night, met with me, and told me that he came from John Brown; and that he should be glad to meet me next day about Three in the Afternoon at the Kings's-Arms Tavern in Covent-Garden, for he had some Money to pay me on the Account of John Brown. I went thither, was apprehended, and committed to Newgate. While I was there, the Prisoner came to me and bid me fear nothing; for, says he, There's no Langer; and if you can but 1keep your own Counsel, you'll come off well enough. The Letter was produced in Court; and this Evidence deposed, that he verily believed it to be the same Part of the first Line, being wrote with a yellow luk, very different from the rest.
