Lord! Lord! Whereupon, I thought they were got to their old Trade of Quarrelling, and so I pass'd on to my Stand; and a little while after, I heard somebody call Watch! Watch! And upon that, I ran out and heard that the poor Man was departed; but not being willing to go upon my own Head, I went and inform'd the Constable about it, and desired his Instruction for keeping the Peace, and to Mr. Constable and I went to the Deceased's House, and there was he a-lying upon the Floor, and he was stab'd into the Body thro' the Coat, Wastecoat, and Shirt, and the Blood lay guthing out upon the Floor under him; but I don't remember much Discourse about it.</p>

'Tis too late now, says I, you had better call the Watch, or any of your Neighbours.

I am Constable: It was just past One o'Clock in the Morning, when my Watchman told me there was a Man dead at the Pastry-Cook's. I went and found the Prisoner sitting in a Chair in a melancholy Posture; the Deceased sitting on the Floor at her Feet, with his Head leaning in her Lap. I quickly perveiv'd he was stab'd, and told her as much, but she said the knew nothing of it. About three or four Yards from him, I found his Coat, Wastecoat, Hat and Wig, and this sharp pointed Case-Knife: It was greasy, and I thought it look'd a little tarnish'd with Blood; but when I rub'd the Tarnish with my Finger, it would not come off. This is the Coat and Wastecoat, and here's the Shirt. - You may perceive that they're all bloody, and in the Left Side of each of 'em you may see the Holes where the Knife went thro'. - Before this Accident, I have several times been call'd off my Watch upon the Prisoner's crying out Murder, when she and the Deceased have been a quarrelling.</p>
<p>Swarton (another Watchman) thus deposed: I was upon Duty at my Stand, (near the Deceased's House) having just been beating Eleven o'Clock; and not long after, comes the Deceased and knocks at his own Door, and there he stood knocking for the Space of a considerable time; but no-body open'd the Door. Mythinks, Master Bostock, says I, they can't, choose but hear you. Hear me! Yes, L - her, she hears me well enough, says he, but I'll give it her by and by: And so at last a Gentlewoman that lodges in the House came down and let him in; and so he went up and beat the Prisoner severely, as I suppose, for I heard her cry out Murder! And then down he comes again. Doctor, says he, (for so he always call'd me) I have given it her, to her Heart's Content. The more Shame for you then, says I, to beat your Wife at such a rate. My Wife! says he, D - her, a Bitch, she's none of my Wife, and I'll turn her a-drift to-morrow. So I left him for that time, and I was call'd again afterwards, and found him lying in the Shop, and the Prisoner said, I am afraid my dear Creature is dead. - Dead! Ay, says I, be's murder'd. Then he did it himself, says she. And this is all that I know of the Matter.</p>

Being afterwards call'd up, I found the Deceased was stab'd, and the Prisoner said he did it himself.</p>
<p>Mr. Scot the Surgeon thus deposed: I open'd the Breast and lower Belly of the Deceased. He received the Wound betwixt the 7th and 8th Ribs, counting from above downwards; it pass'd thro' the Midriff and the Left Lobe of the Lungs to the Left Ventricle of the Heart, in which it terminated, and was the Cause of his Death.</p>
<p>The Prisoner thus made her Defence. I had been at work late, and went to Bed very much tir'd, and presently fell into a sound Sleep. The Deceased came up, and beat me in a violent and barbarous manner, pull'd me out of Bed, tore all my Linnen off, and then went down Stairs. He had served me so several times before, and I always used to humour him, by going down after him, and giving him good Words to coax him to Bed again; tho' indeed I was never married to him. Now I suppose that I not coming to fetch him up so soon as he expected, he was very much vex'd at it, and so stab'd himself, tho' not (I believe) with a Design to take away his own Life, but only to territy me, by making me think that he had done himself a greater Mischief than he really had: But I suppose, when he found himself wounded deeper than he intended, he pull'd off his Coat, and went towards the Cock to wash himself; but being too weak, he might fall down. I staid above a pretty while, to see if he would come up again of his own Accord; but he not coming, I went down as naked as ever I was born, to see what was the matter; and seeing him lie all along, I thought he was either in Fitts, or feign'd himself to be so. - Speak to me, Dickey, (says I) My dear Dickey speak to me, and don't lie so to frighten me: But he made no Answer. - As to what Mr. Cooper swore about my saying I had given the Deceased an unhappy Blow, he mistook my Words; for I said, that the Deceased had given me many an unhappy Blow.

At this Place they and Stockton (the other Prisoner) were drinking together upon the Saturday Evening that the Deceased was kill'd. Some Words pass'd betwixt them in Dutch, which I did not understand; but afterwards the Deceased got up, and challeng'd Smith to go into the Privy-Garden and fight him. Smith appeared very unwilling; but the Deceased went out at the Door, drew his Sword, and swore that he would fight with one of them. Smith went with him at last. Stockton follow'd them, and so did I and two or three more. When they came to the Privy-Garden, the Deceased stript, and drew first; but Smith said, We had better let Fighting alone, Peter: - The Point of my Sword is broke: - We have seen old Comrades, and why should we fall out? However, Peter would needs fight, and so they shook Hands and made several Pushes at one another. Smith wounded him. I was sent for a surgeon; and when I came back the Deceased was dead.</p>

Stockton declin'd it; upon which Peter grew very passionate, went out, drew his Sword, and challeng'd either of 'em. I went up Stairs, and quickly after I was told, that Peter and Smith were gone to the Privy-Garden to fight. Stockton was still in the House; I desired him not to meddle. I do not intend it, says he, for I shall get no Credit by it. He and I follow'd the other two, and found the Deceased stript, with his naked Sword in his Hand. I had rather forbear Fighting, said Smith, for the Point of my Sword is blunted.</p>

I had a mind to have gone in that Way; but Stockton having a Stick in his Hand, and looking very sower, I was afraid to venture by him, and so I ran round another Way. When I came to them, the Deceased was wounded.</p>
<p>The Prisoners then made their Defence. While we were drinking with Peter, (said Smith) I gave the Maid Half a Crown to change for some Meat; upon which Peter bid her take all the Reckoning out of that Money. I ask'd him what he meant by it, and he told me that I was the Man that he took me to be. What Man is that? says I. Why, a Rascally Fellow, says he again. But if you are so bright a Man as you think yourself, come out and I will see you. I had no mind to quarrel, and so said but little more. Then Stockton and he went to Cards; Peter won several Games, and Stockton would play no more. Peter then ask'd me to play; but I deny'd him; upon which, some other Words arising, he went out, drew his Sword, and cry'd, Come out if you dare fight me. I went out and desired him to be quiet. He put up his Sword, and beckoned me to follow him, which I did to the Privy Garden, and there he drew again, and strips himself. Comrade, says I, What makes you so quarrelsome? You don't use to be so. If I have offended you, I will beg your Pardon. - You are a Coward, says he, to ask a Man's Pardon, before you have ty'd what he can do; and I will post you for such as one, if you don't fight. The Thames was just behind me and a Wall on each Side of me, so that I could not get from him. He stept up to me, and swore he would fight now. I told him the Point of my Sword was broke; but all that I could say to prevent the Engagement, signify'd nothing. I told him we would shake Hands first, which with much ado he did, and then we went to it. The Jury

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="172506300005"/> and putting my Hand in my Pocket, I took out Two Shillings. She told me that would not do; therefore I must give her more. I then took out Half a Crown, and with it a Silk Purse that I brought from Berlin; but I don't remember whether it was green or blue. She took the Half Crown, and pray'd me to let her look upon the Purse, for the very much admired it. I put it into her Hand, and she emptied it into her Lap. There were 7 Broad Pieces, 4 Guineas, and 4 Gold Rings set with Diamonds. She look'd them all over, and then put them into my Purse again, and return'd it to me, and I put it into my Pocket; but it was not long before I miss'd it; and (knowing that she had been a little busy about my Breeches) I ask'd her if she had not taken it in Jest? She told me she never saw it, and was for going away; but I stopt her. She call'd the Drawer; and when he came up, I bid him bring another Bottle; but when he saw her so unwilling to stay, he would not bring it. I told him what I had lost; and he bid me look well about the Room to see if I had not dropt it; but I was unwilling to take my Eye off of the Prisoner, that she might have no Opportunity of conveying the Purse away. The Drawer then told us, if we would not agree, and go away quietly, he'd fetch a Constable; and so he did I charged the Constable with her, and desired him to search her, but he excused himself; and she said she'd let any Woman search her, but no Man; and so she was not search'd at all; and the Constable carry'd me to Prison; but what he did with her, I cannot tell.

<interp inst="t17250630-58-person330" type="gender" value="male"/> </persName> thus deposed: I was Surgeon in the Christopher Galley, of which the Prisoner was Captain. On the 12th of January, 1723. we went with our Boats up the River Andona to buy Slaves and Palm Oil. Atkinson (one of the Deceased) happened to set a small jar of Palm Oil (about the Value of 5 or 6 s.) upon some Bars of Iron that lay in the Fore Sheets of the Long Boat. The Prisoner soon after ordered West (the other Deceased) to hand some of those Bars out of the Boat; and West, in taking one of the Bars up, threw down the Jar, and broke it. The Prisoner flew into a violent Passion, and ask'd who set the Jar in that Place? And one of the Crew told him, that it was Jack Atkinson. Then he swore, G - for ever D - 'em, says he, I'll beat them both alike. He had got a knotted Cane in his Hand, about an Inch and a half thick; (we call it a Bamboo Cane) and with this Cane he knock'd them both down, and fell a beating of them in a very furious manner. I was then in another Boat about three Fathom from the Long Boat; so that I heard and saw all that pass'd betwixt 'em. I haul'd up my Boat close to him, and ask'd him, if he intended to kill the Men? G - D - you, says he, I'll kill ye all before I go aboard the Ship. But then, Captain, says I, how will you get your Boats aboard? (for we were then Ten Leagues up the River Andona.) He Scratch'd his Ears, and cry'd, Why then, D - you all, I'll kill you when I have got ye aboard. He still kept beating the two Men till his Cane was broke all to Pieces: I believe he gave them a Hundred Blows apiece, and then, as they lay down, he stampt upon their Breasts, till the Blood gush'd out of their Mouths, and so left them in a miserable Condition, and never ordered any Care to be taken of them. When we came on Board, I apply'd a Seton to each of their Poles. Each of them was seized with a violent Fever: They spit Blood daily, and Atkinson grew delirous Their Heads especially were black with Bruises, very much swell'd, and as soft as an Apple. Yet, tho' they were so extremely ill, the Prisoner never Shew'd the least Regard to them; but, on the contrary, if he came by them as they lay upon the Deck, he would kick them, stamp upon them, strike them in the Face with his Fist, and make them get up to work. I remember the second day after their Beating, that West was put to the Helm; and I coming upon the Deck, he call'd to me, For God's Sake, Doctor, says he, take hold of the Helm, for I am not able to stand; and before I came to him, he fell down. They both died in Calabar River; Atkinson in fifteen days, and West in nineteen days after the Prisoner beat them; and I verily believe that that Beating threw them into the Fever, and was the Cause of their Death. Before they died, they desired me to write their Wills, which I did; but the Prisoner having some Intimation of it, he called me down between Decks one day, and clapping a Pistol to my Breast, I understand, Doctor, says he, that you have got the Wills of these Fellows; and if you don't deliver it to me, or let me see you tear it, by G - I'll shoot you thro' the Body this Minute. So I fetch'd it, and tore it before his Face.</p>
<p>The Prisoner thus made his Defence: Atkinson and West died of a violent Flux and Fever, (the common Distemper of the Country) which they brought upon themselves by drinking Palm Wine, and eating Plantanes. My Gunner and

<interp inst="t17250630-58-person331" type="gender" value="male"/> </persName> , and two or three more, died of the same Distemper, much about the same time; and whatever the Doctor swears now about Atkinson and West, he then turned them and some others over to the Boatswain, and told him they were a Parcel of lazy Sons of Bitches; that they were able enough to work, if they were but willing; and they afterwards did their Duty.</p>
<p>To this the Doctor thus answered: The two deceased Men were free from the Country Distemper; one of 'em indeed had a small Looseness, but nothing like a Flux: I believe they did drink some Palm Wine during their Illness, but not to excess, and I don't know they eat any Plantanes As for turning them over to the Boatswain, I never did, for it was not them, but the Gunner and Jerry Clampet; nor did they do Duty after the Prisoner beat them, for they were not able; only, as I said before, he forced them to do something. Then the Prisoner call'd his Witnesses.</p>

I did not hear them complain of being beat; they did their Duty aboard; and I did not see that they ail'd any thing; - not but that they had Setons and Blisters upon 'em: But then they had such a violent Flux, that it run from 'em all over the Deck, and I could have thrust my Hand up their Fundaments, they were grown so very wide. I remember, that 14 or 15 days after they were beat, they were both very well, and the Doctor turn'd 'em over to the Boatswain, and said they were lazy Dogs, and able enough to work; - tho' indeed they were then in a sort of a Fever, and had several Blisters upon them, and one of 'em died the next day, and t'other in two or three days after him; but then there were seven more that had got a Flux at the same time.</p>

The Palm Wine will seldom keep 24 Hours; 'tis like Canary in the Morning, Syder at Noon, and Vinegar at Night. It being so pleasant in a Morning, the Sailors are commonly so fond of it, that they drink to Excess, the Consequence of which is commonly a great Flux, tho' not always attended with a Fever.</p>
