Hemp changed colour, and faintly answer'd, Yes. - And did not you strip a poor Woman there, says I. Why Yes, Says Bird, we did, and what is it to you, or any Son of a Bitch alive? As soon as Mrs. Sutherland saw Bird, - Ay, says she, That's the Rogue that I scratch'd in the Face.

Being further demanded, if he was positive that the Man that took his Sword, did then wear a Wig or not; What Colour his Cloths were of, and whether he had a great Coat or not; he could give no direct Answer.

My Pocket was on that Side next him. As I stept down, I felt a sort of a switch as if some part of my Cloths had catch'd hold of the Coach. My Maid came to the Door with a Candle. The Prisoner was going to drive away without his Fare. I mist my Pocket, and charg'd him with it. He deny'd it. But I insisting that I had it in the Coach, he came down and he look'd for it; We found it in the Coach; my Maid was going to take it up, but he pusht his Arm forward, and took it up. I saw it was dirty, and ask'd him how he could say that he knew nothing of it, when it was so plain that it had been in the Dirt, and afterwards was put into the Coach. He told me that he did indeed take it up in the Street, and throw it into the Coach, but he thought it had been his Corn Bag. Then turning the Pocket upside down, he shook my Watch and Money into the Street upon which Words arising, my Husband came to the Door. The Prosecutors Maid confirm'd the latter Part of is Evidence.</p>

<p>At one Time when he was examin'd, he said that the Money dropt into his Shoes; and at another Time that they fell only upon his Shoes; he could not tell how they got into the Coach afterwards. Several Witnesses gave him a good Character, and the Jury found him

He made 2 or 3 Payments and then neglected for several Weeks. I dunn'd him often, but he put me off with one Pretence or other; and at last, about the Middle of October, he told me that a Friend in Hertfordshire had left him 50 l. and he was to go early next Morning to fetch it, and therefore beg'd me to lend him my great Coat, and half a Guines, which I did, and told him I'd bear him Company; but when I came in the Morning he was gone. In 2 or 3 Days, his Wife shew'd me a Letter without Date or Superscription; the Contents of it was that her Husband had met with two Highwaymen upon the Road, who had almost killed him, so that it would be some Weeks before he would be able to come Home. She told me however, that I should be sure to have my Money; I call'd upon her several Times, and once or twice I did get a small Matter of her; but she commonly made Excuses, and appointed me to call another Time. I went to her again on the 5th of November, and she desir'd me to come again about 10 o'Clock at Night; for she said, she was going out, and should hardly come in again before that Time. And, Mr. Hill, says she, You have often promis'd me a Glass of Wine when I paid you any Money, but you never gave it me yet; I wish you would bring it with you to Night, for now my Husband is out of Town I have most need of it, and therefore it would be a Deed of Charity. I left her, and at the Time appointed return'd with a Bottle of Wine. I knockt at the Door, and she look'd out of the Window. What, says I, are you going to Bed? If you are, I'll come to Morrow. She answer'd, No, no, stay a Minute, and I'll open the Door. I thought I heard her Husband's Voice, but I was not certain; however she came down and let me in; Now, Says she, I see you are as good as your Word, but I cannot drink except I eat a Bit first; I wish you'd step to the Chandler's Shop and fetch a Roll and Cheese. I went and turning back, I saw the glimpse of Somebody go from her Door. When I came in, we sat down in the Kitchin, and drank a Glass or two. Now, says she, suppose my Husband should come and catch us, - Why what if he should, says I, it would not be the first Time that he has seen me in this House, - I know that, says she, but yet he'd certainly Murder as both. I told her, then I would stay no longer, and got up to go, when presently Somebody knock'd at the Door. O, says she, 'tis my Sister Molly, step up Stairs a Minute, and I'll send her away again presently; for I dont know what she may think, to see us here together at this Time of Night. I went to the Stair-head, she open'd the Door, and hearing that it was her Husband, I came down again, and bade him welcome Home; G - D - ye, says he. What Business have ye with my Wife? And so knock'd me down with his Cane, and beat me unmercifully, and in the mean while his
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="172512080005"/> Wife took a Couple of Spike Nails, and nail'd the Door with them. - Then he swore that he would have my Rings; upon which I pull'd then off, and gave them to him, and rising up, I then clos'd with him, and threw him, upon which his Wife catch'd up a knife and swore she'd Murder me; but I got the Knife from her, and threw it into the Fire. The Prisoner fell upon me again, What do you mean, says I, by abusing me thus? Do you intend to murder me? If I have done you any wrong, send for an Officer, and I'll surrender my self peaceably. By G - says he, I'll be your butcher, if you don't immediately give me a Note for 50 l. I told him I'd never do that. Why then look ye, says he, I'll make but one Word with you; if you wont return me my Note for 12 l. 10 s. and give me another Note for 5 l. You shall never go out of this House alive.</p>
<p>I told him, I had not got that Note about me. He swore he would search me; and thrusting his Hand into my Pocket, he took out a French Six-pence, which was all I had about me then. And then they let me out.</p>

<p>The Prisoner thus made his Defence. I had been about 3 Weeks in the Country, and returning on the 5th of November, about 10 at Night to my Habitation, I saw a Light below, and knock'd at the Door, but No-body answering, I thought my Wife had been asleep; upon which I knock'd harder, and then she came to the Door with only one Petticoat on, and her Gown wrapt. loosely about her; I was surprised to see a Bottle, a Glass, and Watch upon the Table. I ask'd her who those Things belong'd to, she told me to Mr. Hill. Where is he? says I: Above says she And what Business has he there with you in the Dark? says I, and so I ran up Stairs, and found him standing in his Shirt; for I suppose he was just got out of Bed, and could not really find his Cloaths in the Dark. I was very much surpriz'd, for before this Accident, I thought I had got as virtuous a Wife as any in England But having a Cane in my Hand, I told him if he was so hot, I'd cool his Courage for him; and to giving him 3 or 4 Strokes across the Shoulders, I bid him get out of my House; however, I let him put on his Cloths, and then came down with him, and was going to fetch a Constable; but he cry'd and beg'd of me not to do it; for he should be ruin'd, if ever it came to his Father-in-law's Ear; and therefore, if I would but make it up, he'd give me any Satisfaction; I told him, I desir'd nothing of him, but a Bond never to come into my Wife's Company again; and then he gave me his Rings for a Pledge, till he gave me such a Bond. As for the French Six-pence, he gave it me to fetch a Mug of Beer, that we might drink and be Friends at parting.</p>

I lost 10 Guineas at one time, 2 at another, and 3 at a third time. I came home one Tuesday Evening, and found the Prisoner standing by the Fire, and having Occasion to look for something in my Scrutore, I went up Stairs and mist my Subscriptions; when I came down, the Prisoner was gone, and did not come home all that Night. The next Day I acquainted my Broker with my Loss, and by his Advice, I stuck up Advertisements in Jonathan's, and about Change-Alley. That Evening Mr. Woodly told me that he had bought those Subscriptions, which he had since seen advertis'd; by his Description of the Man that sold them, I judged it to be the Prisoner. I went with Mr. Woodly to his Bankers, on whom he had given the Prisoner a Draught. The Banker told us that he paid part of that Draught with a 50 l. Bank Bill (Numb. 211) and the rest in Gold. I then went to the Bank to stop Payment of that Bill, and from thence home, where I found the Prisoner in the Kitchen, in Company with another Man. I took no Notice of any Loss, but ask'd him if we should not have a Bowl of Punch together. He answer'd, with all his Heart. While the Punch was making, I sent privately for Mr. Woodly, but the Prisoner (as he afterwards told me) mistrusting that I had some Design against him he went away, and I saw him no more that Night. The next Day which was Thursday, about noon, a Porter came and told me that some Gentleman wanted me at my other Inn upon Dowgate-Hill and that I must come immediately. I suspected that there was some Trick in this, and so desir'd John Hitchcock to dog that Porter where ever he went, which he did, and I followed him at a proper Distance. The Potter instead of going to Dowgate-Hill went to Charing-Cross, and there in a Trunk Makers Shop I took the Prisoner and brought him back in a Coach in the Angel-Inn, where I sent for Mr. Woody, Mr. Sheppard and another. Mr. Woodly could not swear that the Prisoner was the Man that sold him the Subscriptions, but the other two Men were positive of it. In order to secure him till I could find a Justice of the Peace, (for I had been to several of their Houses, but none of them were in the Way). I arrested him in an Action of 40 l. for his Board at my House, my Friend Collet, having first (by endeavouring to accommodate the Difference) got from him the same 50 l. Bank Bill, that he receiv'd of Mr. Woodly's Banker. Whilst he was under this Arrest, he promis'd to make me any Satisfaction and give me good Security to make it up. I told him if he'd give my Friend a Note on demand for 100 l. I'd discharge him, which he did, and that I that Night withdrew my Action for 40 l. and the next Morning arrested him for the 10 d.

<p>Mr. Jones thus depos'd. The Prisoner when I first charg'd him with the Fact, deny'd it; but pressing closely, he confest to me, that he himself with a Key of his own, opened Mr. Bain's Scrutore, and took out the 17 Guineas at 3 Times, and at another Time took the Subscriptions; I was desir'd to ask him, (which I did if Mr. Bains's Sister, or his Maid were at all concern'd in it; he answer'd There was no Person but my self that was any Way Concern'd in it, God forbid that I should accuse the Innocent, I would give 300l. I make it up. And yet the next Day he told me that Bains's Sister did give him that Money, and those Subscriptions, and assured me at the same Time, that there was a Familiarity betwixt himself and her.

The Prisoner thus made his Defence, I never had any of the Guineas, but I own that I had the Subscriptions, and sold them to Mr. Woodly; but they were given me by Mr. Bains's Sister. I was saying one Day, that I wonder'd I had not receiv'd Money from my Father as usual; upon which she told me, she could help me to something that would fetch Money, and then gave me the Subscriptions which she could easily come at; for she was intrusted with the whole House, and kept all the Keys. The Monday before he took me up, he turn'd his Sister out of Doors, on the Account of his having lost the Guineas, and he had sent the Maid away before, on the same Suspicion. He knew that there had been some great Freedoms betwixt me and his Sister, and he press'd me to marry her. And that Night I was arrested. I made some mention to him of the Favours she had granted me. Upon which he said he had rather have given 100 l. than I should have said any such Thing of his Sister. Since I have been under this Trouble, I have requir'd him to procure his Sister to appear upon my Tryal, but he has refus'd it.</p>
<p>To this Mr.Bains thus reply'd. My Sister never was trusted with the keys of my Scrutore; I never knew that there was the least Affair betwixt her and the Prisoner; I dont believe that he ever so much as touch'd her Lips, for they had no Opportunities of being alone together. I turn'd her away because she was saucy; for when I had sent the Maid away, truly my Sister said, if the Maid went, she'd go too, and I told her she might if she would, and so she took Huff, and away she went. When the Prisoner told me, that he had taken some Freedoms with her, I said, Indeed, (I wonder you should say so of my Sister, for I dont believe that she was ever guilty of any such Thing in her Life. Other Witnesses depos'd, that the Prisoner said that Bains's Sister gave him the Subscriptions; but that he would give his Note or do any Thing to make the Matter up rather than his Father should hear of it; and that Notice was left
