Sir Charles kept several tame Conies, and one Morning I mist 4 Does and a Buck, and afterwards I found the Does at the Prisoner's House. The Prisoner Confess'd the Fact before Sir Charles. In this Defence at the Bar, he pretended that he bought the Rabbits, and he never did an ill Thing in his life. Sir Charles hearing this, inform'd the Court that the Prisoner had already been burnt in the Hand. The Court order'd that his Hand should be look'd on, and thereupon one of the Keepers call'd to the Executioner, Come hither Jack, says he, and see if you know your own Hand-writing. The Executioner came, and the Mark was visible.

The Wound was Mortal, it penetrated to the Cavity of the Breast near the left Pap, and went strait downward, and not at all obliquely. The Wound was all of a Breadth; and therefore I think it could not be given over another Mans Shoulder: For in Such a Case the Wound would have been wider at the Orifice than it was inwards. Hasting and Mead depos'd that they took the Prisoner the same Night in Long Acre betwixt 12 and 1. That he made no Resistance and that when they brought him to the Deceas'd, he said he was sorry for it. The Prisoner then made his Defence. Mr. Bourn thus depos'd. The Deceas'd demanded a Guinea. The

Then, and not before, I saw the Prisoner with his Sword drawn: He retreated in a Posture of Defence, and said to the Deceas'd, Keep off. Bear-Garden! The Deceas'd follow'd him 5 or 6 Yards. The Prisoner still bade him keep off, and drew back as he spoke; but the Deceas'd continued to push forward, though I saw nothing in his Hand, and whether he ran upon the Prisoner's Sword or not, I can't tell.

And so am I too, says she, For God's sake, says I, what cou'd put it into your Head, to commit such a barbarous Murder upon your own husband? Why says she, the Devil put it into my Head, but however John Hays was none of the best of the Husbands, for I have been half starved ever since I was married to him. I don't in the least repent of any Thing that I have done, but only in drawing those two poor Man into this Misfortune. I was Six Weeks in importuning 'em to do it; they deny'd it 2 or 3 Times, but at last they agreed. My Husband was made so drunk that he fell out of his Chair, and then Billings (who was a Taylor) and Wood carried him into the back Room, and laid him upon the Bed. I was not in that Room, but in the Fore Room on the same Floor when he was kill'd. But they told me that Billings struck him twice on the Head, with a Pole Ax, and then Wood cut his Throat. When he was dead I went in and held the Candle, while Wood cut his Head quite off, and afterwards they chop'd off his legs and Arms. And why, says I, did you use your Husband in such an inhumane manner. Because, says she, we wanted to get him into an Old Chest, but he was too long, and too big. We thought to have done it with only cutting off his Head, and his Legs, but we were forced to cut off his Thighs and his Arms, and then the Chest would not hold 'em all. The Body and Limbs were put into Blankets, and carried out at several Times the next Night, and thrown into a Pond. But what, says I, could induce the Men to be guilty of all this? Was it the sake of Money? No, says she The Devil was in us all, and we were all got drunk. And what, says I, can you say for your self when you come before the Judge? Why, says she, it will signify nothing to make a long Preamble, I'll hold up my Hand and say that I am Guilty, for nothing can save me, nobody can forgive me.

I was not with 'em when they did it, for I was sitting upon a Stool by the Fire in the Shop, but I heard the Blow given, and heard somebody stamp. And why did not you cry out, says I, Because I was afraid they would kill me, says she: and after his Head was cut off it was put into a Pail, and Wood carry'd it out; Billing sat down by me; and cry'd, and would lye all the rest of the Night in the Room with the dead Body. But what, says I, was she first Occasion of your contriving to do this? Why, says she, my Husband came Home drunk one Night and beat me, upon which says Billings, This fellow deserves to be kill'd, and says Wood I'd be his Butcher for a Penny, and I told 'em they might do as they would, and so they made a Contrivance to kill him; but I did not know that they'd do it the Night that it was done on. And why, says I, did not you tell your Husband of this Design to murder him? Because says she, I was afraid that he'd beat me.

I was tired and wanted to go to Bed, but I was willing first to know if their Liquor was almost out that I might not, be disturbed when I went to Rest. - And so I came down and tap'd at the Door, and ask'd her if they had almost done Drinking; ay, Child, says she, I am just not a going to Bed; and so up I goes again, and not long after I heard the Door open, I call'd and asked who it was that went out. O says She it is my Husband, he's gone into the Country with a Charge of Money, and I am frighted out of my Wits for fear he should be Murder's. I wish he may come safe Home, but I never knew such an Obstinate Man in my life, when he gets a little Liquor. - There was no persuading him to stay till Morning. I went out early next Day which was Wednesday, and return'd about 9 at Night. The Prisoner was sitting by the Fire, but without a Candle in the Shop, with Wood and Billings. She again shew'd a great deal of uneasiness for her Husband, for fear some wicked Rogue or other should knock him on the Head for his Money. I went into my own Room, but had not been there long before I heard something drawling along the Floor, and 2 Men go out at the Door. I came down, again and asked what they were doing. She said those 2 Men were going to fetch a Bed home, when they came back they brought only a Broomstick with them, and said that they had not Money enough for the Bed. - I went up again, and by and by I heard another drawling upon the Floor, and the Men went out again. - When they return'd I let them in my self, but they had not yet bought the Bed. What says she, was the Landlords Mark upon the Bed? Yes, say they. Why then, says She I am glad you did not bring it. I left them, and once more went to my own Room: In a little time I heard another Bustling below. I begun to be very uneasy, and thought that something more than ordinary must be the Matter, and so I was going down again; but the Prisoner met me at my Door, and told me she was come to smoke half a Pipe with my Husband. While she staid I heard the Men going out again, and I stept to the Stair-Head and look'd down. She follow'd me, and ask'd why I was so uneasy. Truly, says I, Mrs. Hays I believe your'r a going to move your Goods by Night, and I think its Shame you should do so when you have got Money that lies by you. - No indeed, says She its no such thing. Why then pray Mistress Hays tell me what is the Matter? Why nothing, says she. - I beg you to make your self easy. The next Day which was Thursday, I saw Wood go out with a Bundle, and turn down Swallow Street. I asked her what that Bundle was, why, says she, 'tis a Suit of Cloaths that be borrow'd to go abroad in Last Sunday. - The Head that was thrown into the Thames at Mill Bank, and the Pail that it was carried, in, were both brought to me at the Gate-house to see if I knew 'em, and I did know that the Head was Mr. Hayns's and that the Pail was his Pail, and this is his Coat. - At the sight of the Coat, the Prisoner at the Bar fainted away, but being recover'd,

The Prisoner did not send any Body out upon any Message. - He frequents our House.

Then each of 'em took off his Hat and Wig, and held out a Pistol. - Says the Prisoner, Fire. No (says the Deceas'd) do you fire first - You ought to do that, says the Prisoner. - Well then, say, the Deceas'd, let as fire both at once, and so they did, and both mist, then they drew their Swords. The Deceas'd run toward the Prisoner, who parry'd off his Sword, and pusht at him. They closed, struggled together, the Deceas'd fell backward, and the Prisoner upon him; the Prisoner then took away the Deceas'd's Sword, and they both got up, but the Deceas'd stagger'd, and fell down again. The Prisoner call'd me to him, and said to the Deceas'd. Speak, who was in the Fault? Will ye forgive me? - Pray forgive me. But the Deceas'd could make no Answer; the Prisoner desir'd me to call a Coach, but I was Weak, and could not run nor call aloud His Sword was bloody, and crooked. He wiped it on the Grass, and streighten'd it, and then waved his Hat for a Coach at Hyde-Park Corner. A Coach came, he put on his Cloak, his Wig. and Hat, and pray. says he, take care of the Gentleman, and I'll send a Surgeon immediately, and by this Time, another Gentleman's Servant was come to us.

Mr. Rand the Surgeon depos'd. That both Ventricles of the Heart were penetrated. The Entrance was made betwixt the Fourth and Fifth Rib, that the Wound was Mortal, and the Occasion of his Death. The Prisoner thus made his Defence. The Deceas'd call'd on me at the Coffee-House, and said he wanted to talk with me about a little Business, that he had receiv'd from a Person that I had some concern with. He said, he had got a Coach ready, and we both went in. When we came to Charing-Cross, he fell in a violent Passion, and told me, that I had acted like a Rascal and a Scoundrel; In what? Says I. Why, says he, in setting me to work about this pitiful business, in which there's nothing to be got, and employing another Gentleman in your Affairs of great Consequence; and beside you have injur'd my Character in another Affair and by G - I'll have satisfaction, and then shew'd me two Pistols which he had brought with him. - I endeavour'd in vain to pacify him, and he swore if I offer'd to stir from him, he'd shoot me. Some Notice has been taken of my wearing a Cloak on a warm Day, as if it was with a Design to conceal my Pistols, or to favour my Escape. But I only wore it to prevent catching Cold, for I had been ill for a Fortnight before. as I can prove. Nor was my being at the Coffee-House the Consequence of any Assignation . But, it being a House that I frequented, the Deceas'd might think it a likely Place to find me. Dr. Wasey, and an Apothecary depos'd. That the Prisoner confirm'd what the Prisoner said of his Illness.
