Mr. Jones, who was the Prisoner's Neighbour, took particular Notice of his coming home drunk, about 7 a Clock that Morning the Burglary was committed. And some other Circumstances concurring to raise a Suspicion of the Prisoner, he was apprehended. Some of the stoln Plate was found in his necessary House; and a piece of an Iron Bar in his Chamber, the other broken part of which was left in the Prosecutor's Cellar. The Prisoner was drinking in a Coffee-House near the Prosecutor's, till Mid-night; which was about two Hours before the Burglary; for betwixt 2 and 3 a Clock that Morning, the Prosecutor's Drawer was found in Lincoln's-Inn-Fields.</p>
<p>The Prisoner thus made his Defence. I left the Coffee-House in Clare-street about 12 at Night, I was drunk, I crost the Way, and betwixt Mr.Cross's Ware-House, and the Fishmongers; I stumbled over something, and being just under a Lamp, I lookt about and saw lying there, the Plate that was found in my Vault, and the Piece of Iron that was found in my Chamber. From whence I went to Drury-Lane, and pickt up a Blackamoor Woman, and from her I went to the Night-House, and so home to my Wife in the Morning.

Why then you are a Scrub, says the Deceas'd - A Scrub? For what? - I'll tell you for what. Don't ye remember that about 12 Years ago, I fought with your Friend Bond, a Carpenter, at the Castle in Angel-street in St: Martin's - Well and what then? - And don't ye remember that you parted us by taking me off. - Suppose I did? - Why then, I say you are a Scrub, and a Scoundrel for your Pains, for if you had let us alone, I should have beat him. - You' a' beat him! No, that's a great Mistake of yours! he would have beat you, and therefore instead of calling me Scrub, you ought to give me a Bottle. - A Mistake of mine! Why I could have beat him or you either at that Time of Day, and I can still, for all I am grown so fat. I'll fight you for a Guinea, and here it is. - You're not in earnest sure? - By G - d but I am. - I shan't believe it, till I see you pull off your Hat and Wig. - Why then there's my Hat, and there's my Wig. Now cover the Guinea. The Prisoner taking off his own Hat and Wig, answer'd no, if I fight it shall be for no more than a Bottle, tho' I had rather give you a Bottle and let it alone. But since you will needs sight, there's the first Blow, and in so saying, he in a jocular Manner gave the Deceas'd a gentle Tap or Stroke upon the Cheek. D - ye for a Cowardly Dog. (says the Deceas'd) don't stroke me, but strike as hard as you can. I wont take the Law of ye. After this, as Mr. Burleigh made Oath the first Blow was given by the Deceas'd, who struck the Prisoner on the Stomach, and tore his Shirt; but most of the other Witnesses depos'd that they did not see that, but did believe that the Prisoner struck first. However they both fell to fighting. The Deceas'd endeavour'd to strike the Prisoner, but the Prisoner knockt the Deceas'd down three Times. He rose again, and before his third Rising, somebody pusht open the Door, and in shutting it again, his Heel was catch'd betwixt the Door, and the Door-case, and he hastily endeavouring to get up, gave his Leg such a Wrench as dislocated his Ancle, upon which they sent for a Surgeon.</p>

The Prisoner exprest a Disgust at it, but I told him I should follow my own Inclination, without regarding whether or no it was agreeable to his Humour. They continued playing: The Deceas'd lost 30 Shillings. Mr. Rich said, Who will set me Three half Crowns? Upon which the Deceas'd took something out of his Pocket, and laid on the Table, but conceal'd it with his Hand, and said, I'll set you 3 Pieces; and then taking his Hand away we saw 3 Half-pence. This was not offer'd to the Prisoner, but he appear'd to be much affronted. He said it was very impertinent to set 3 Half-pence, or Words to that Effect. The Deceas'd ask'd him what he meant by impertinent. You're an impertinent Puppy, says the Prisoner; to which the Deceas'd reply'd, The Man that calls me Puppy, is a Rascal or a Scoundrel, I can't tell which, He had hardly spoke, when the Prisoner snatch'd up a Bottle, and with Violence threw it at his Head, which beat some Powder out of his Wig, but did him no hurt. He in return Tost a Glass (or a Candlestick) I can't tell which, for both fell down, at the Prisoner, but it did not reach him. They both rose up together, and went to their Swords; which hung up in the Room. The Deceas'd being quickest got his Sword first, and drew it, and stood still in a Posture of Defence, at a good Distance from the Prisoner, who was advancing, and drawing his Sword to meet him, but Mr. Rich stept in between, and prevented him, The Deceas'd then threw away his Sword, and they all sat down again, and drank for about half an Hour: When the Deceas'd offering his Hand to the Prisoner, said to this Effect. We have had hot Words. Major, you was the Aggressor: But let us be reconcil'd. To which the Prisoner answer'd to this Effect, No, D - n ye, I'll have your Blood; and turning to me he said, Hawkins, You was the Occasion of this. Why then, says I. If you have any Thing to say to me, I am your Man, and I'll see you out. No, says he, I have another Chap first. In about half an Hour after this, which was near 3 in the Morning, the Company broke up. I went out first, and coming to the Street Door, I saw it rain; I waited a little, and not seeing the rest of the Company come down, return'd to the Room, and found the Deceas'd wounded, and leaning on a Chair in a languishing Condition. He dy'd the next Morning. I knew him intimately well, and dont believe that there was a sweeter Temper'd Man in the World.</p>

I and some others, among whom were the Prisoner and the Deceas'd, went together to see the New Tragedy of Hecuba. We sat together in the Pit, and the Deceas'd and the Prisoner appear'd to be good Friends all the Time of the Play, and when it was over, I left them for a little while, and met them again at the Castle. The Prisoner and I call'd for Box and Dice, which not being to be had, the Prisoner call'd for a Pepper Box, and it was brought. I saw Dice lying on the Table, but knew not how they came there. I laid down 3 half Crowns. The Major set me: I threw. Seven was the Main, and Six the Chance. The Deceas'd put down 3 half Pence against me, and said, Here, I'll set ye 3 Pieces; I said I was not at the Brass. The Prisoner call'd him an impertinent Puppy: Says the Deceas'd, to this effect. I am not afraid of ye; he that calls me Impertinent is a Rascal At these Words, the Prisoner threw a Bottle at him, which brusht his Wig as it past; and he in return tost a Glass. Then they both took their Swords; the Deceas'd drew his, and stood ready to defend himself; but made no Offer to push at the Prisoner. There was a Table and Chair betwixt them. The Prisoner was coming forward to engage with him; but I stept between, and told him if he made a Longe it must be thro' my Body; which as I was unarm'd would be Wilful Murder. The Deceas'd then threw away his Sword, and they both sat down again; the Deceas'd put his Hand forward, and said to the Prisoner, Come, Major, let us be reconcil'd: We have had Words in heat, but they ought to be forgiven and forgot. To which the Prisoner passionately answer'd. to this effect G - D - ye you lie - I'll have your Blood by G - a. When we all got up to go, the Prisoner hung his great Coat upon his Shoulders, and I think button'd it in one or two places. Mr. Hawkins went out first. Mr. Blunt next, the Deceas'd follow'd him, I the Deceas'd, and the Prisoner last, but he was hardly out of the Room, when he call'd to the Deceas'd. Hark ye, young Gentleman, I have something to say to ye. The Deceas'd went back, they both re-enter'd the Room; the Door was immediately shut last; I heard a Clashing of Swords, and a great stamp upon the Floor, as if made by the Prisoner, who is a very heavy Man. Mr. Blunt stept back, we endeavour'd to get in, but could not immediately open the Door; but at last by the Drawers Assistance, we got in. Mr. Blunt first and I close behind him. The Prisoner was then next to
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="172603020004"/> the Door, and standing with his Sword drawn in his Right Hand the Point of it toward the Deceas'd, whom he held by the shoulder with his Left Hand. I think the Deceas'd had then no Sword in his Hand, and I soon afterwards found it close to the Wall, behind the Foldings of the Table. It was greasy 4 or 5 Inches from the Point. The Deceas'd clos'd with the Prisoner, but in such a manner as if he rather fell towards him thro' Weakness, than otherwise; which makes me think the Wound was given him before we came in. We put him in a Chair, and sent for a Surgeon. I receiv'd a little Prick with (as I suppose) the Major's Sword, but I believe it was accidentally, while I endeavour'd to part them. Mr. Blunt receiv'd a dangerous Wound in the Belly, but I am ignorant by what Means. I told the Prisoner that I was afraid he had kill'd the Deceas'd. No. No, says he, I have only frighted him; but suppose I had kill'd him, I know what I do in such Affairs; for if I had kill'd him to Night (while the Quarrel was fresh) I should have had the Law on my Side. I asked the Deceas'd on his Death Bed if he receiv'd the Wound fairly, and he answer'd faintly. I - think - I - did - but - I dont know - what might have happened - if you - had not - come in - The former Part of the preceeding Depositions, being confirm'd by
<persName id="t17260302-36-person192"> Michael Blunt

<interp inst="t17260302-36-person192" type="gender" value="male"/> </persName> , he thus went on. After the throwing of the Bottle, I being apprehensive that their Quarrel would break out again next Day; I invited the Company to dine together, in hopes to bring them to a Reconciliation, and thereby prevent farther Mischief. The Prisoner answer'd my Offer, with, No, G - d D - n ye all, I'll dine with none of ye. I heard the Prisoner call back the Deceas'd, and he was no sooner got into the Room again, but the Door was shut violently, and I heard the Clashing of Swords. When I got in, I did not see that the Deceas'd had any Sword in his Hand; he was sinking forwards, and I going to a assist him, receiv'd a Wound in my Belly, which I was afraid was mortal, but I cannot tell how, or by whom it was given: but I believe not by the Deceas'd, who had no Sword in his Hand, not was in a Condition to wound me.</p>
<p>Mr. Shaw the Surgeon thus depos'd. I found the Deceas'd languishing in a Chair, his Guts appear'd on the Wound, and were mortifying by being expos'd to the Air. I drest him and sent him home, but the next Day I found a second Rupture of his Intestines. He dyed soon after, and that Wound was the Cause of his Death.</p>
<p>The Prisoner thus made his Defence. The Dice and Pepper Box were call'd for, but not by me. I flung a Main and past it about. Mr. Hawkins refus'd. I told him I thought there was as good Fellowship in a little play, as in altogether drinking: At last the Deceas'd offer'd to set 3 half Pence; I told him it was very impertinent. He call'd me Rascal. You impertinent Puppy, says I, what do ye mean by that; and taking up a Flask I threw it towards him. He threw a Glass at any Hand, and immediately drew his Sword. I told him in so doing he acted very basely, and so I sat down again. When the Company was going, I put on my great Coat, which I think did not look as if I had any Thought of fighting. But the Deceas'd and I being the two last in the Room, be no sooner saw the rest of the Company gone, but he slung the Door to, and drew upon me. I was oblig'd to draw in my own Defence, and in parrying with him, I receiv'd 3 Wounds, one on my Knee, another across my Finger, and a third on my Buttock; which last I receiv'd when I clos'd him, for he then endeavour'd to stab me in the Back, and it must be by him that Mr. Blunt receiv'd his Wound, when he came to part us.</p>
<p>The Drawer thus depos'd. When I enter'd the Room I saw the Deceas'd and the Prisoner both with their Swords in their Hands, pointing towards each other, the Deceas'd closed with the Prisoner, but so as if he was rather falling than pushing, the Prisoner had hold of the Deceas'd with his Left Hand, for as soon as we parted them, the Deceas'd was so weak that he could not stand. I did not see him stab the Prisoner behind. But I cry'd out to the Prisoner, for God Sake what are ye doing.</p>
<p>Mr. Burdet, a Surgeon thus depos'd. The next Day in the Evening, the Prisoner sent for me to the House of Mrs. Gardiner, in Dean-street, near Red-Lyon-Square; where he had conceal'd himself. He desir'd me to dress his Wounds, of which he had three, as he now says, but none of them were the Depth of a Quarter of an Inch. Mrs. Gardner depos'd to the same Effect.</p>

We agreed upon a Price, and that he should pay ready Money if his Friend lik'd it, but that if it did not please, the Porter should bring it back, and he should pay the Porterage. I accordingly sent my Porter with the Cask of Brandy, and gave him strict Orders not to deliver it without Money. The Porter came back with a Cask, but instead of Brandy it was fill'd with Water.</p>

On the 3d of January in the Morning, he brought an empty half Anchor into my Room, and soon after carry'd it away again. I went down into the Yard, and there I saw both him and Smith filling the same Cask with Water. Fitzpatrick told me that Smith had accidentally spilt some Brandy, and they were filling the Cask with Water again, to see how much was lost. When they had fill'd it they carried it out, but whether or no they went to the Anchor Ale-house, I cannot tell.</p>
<p>Mrs. - thus depos'd. The Prisoners brought this Cask of Water to our House ( Mr. Dockrell's at tho Anchor in the Savoy ) and there they blackt it, to make it look old. Smith went out, and Fitzpatrick put on a blue Apron, which I never saw him wear before, but I suppose he did it, that he might pass for the Landlord of the House. He was sitting by the Fire, when Smith return'd with the Porter, who pitch'd his Bag with a Cask in it, upon the Table; Smith took the Cask out, and carry'd it behind the Screen, while the Porter was drinking by the Fire; and afterwards I saw him put a Cask into the Porters Bag, and send him away; and as soon as the Porter was gone, Smith and Fitzpatrick carry'd out another Cask between them.</p>
<p>Smith thus made his Defence. I made a fair Agreement for the Brandy, and if the Distiller has been cheated, I suppose it was done by the Porter. I am sure Fitzpatrick is innocent of the Matter, for I myself know nothing of it.</p>
<p>Fitzpatrick made his Defence. Arra fait if I dont make my Innoshence appear, I will be after forfeiting both my Head and Ears to thish honourable Court; and in the first Plaush consherning the Cashk of Water.
