I went to turn up the Bed where the Prisoner lay, and I found the 6 Guineas, he said were his: but I told him that that was more than I knew, for the Man that kept the Folly had been lying upon the same Bed himself just before, and they might belong to him, and therefore, says I, you shall swear'em to be yours before you shall have 'em.

<p>- Collinson the Constable thus depos'd. Between 11 and 12 at Night, the Prosecutor brought the 2 Prisoners to me at the Watch-house in Thames-street, and accus'd them with stealing from him a Guinea, a Medal, and 5 Shillings; I searched Susan Sly, and in one of her Stockings I found 5 Shillings, and in the other the Medal, which the Prosecutor own'd, and swore to be his before my Lord Mayor, who bound him over to prosecute in a Bond of 30 l. and me in a Bound of 10 l. but yet being unwilling to expose his Character, he has not thought fit to appear against the Prisoners.</p>
<p>The Prisoners thus made their Defence. The Prosecutor met us in the Street, and invited us to take a Glass of Wine. - We went to the Dog Tavern by Billingsgate, but could not have a Room there,

Then he desir'd us to leave the Medal in pawn, and he'd meet us there another Night and redeem it. - At last he said if we would not pay, he'd send for one that should, and so he sent for his Landlord, who came and clear'd the Reckoning, and then the Prosecutor charged us with picking his Pocket.

I tax'd her with robbing me, but she deny'd it, and up came her Bullies, and maul'd me, and beat me, and kick'd me down Stairs, and broke my Nose, and then turn'd me out of Doors, and hussel'd me up and down among the dark Alleys, that I might not find the House again, and so they left me in a most lamentable Pickle.

Now its always my way to take care of my Masters, and see them safe home, when ever I meet any of them as I go my Rounds: and so it fell out between 12 and 1 a Saturday Morning, that I see's my Master Hartrey come out of a Coach very much fuddled, and who should be up upon, but this very Gentlewoman at the Bar, Madam Blewit, or Dickenson, or Bowler, or what you please to call her, for she was Wife to them all Three at the same Time, and the two First of'em are now a hanging in Chains in St. George's-Fields. Whether he wanted a Whore, or she a Rogue, is neither here not there, but they presently laid fast hold of one another, and grew woundy loving. I found my Master was in Danger, and did all that I could to get him away. Hussy, says I, You Saucy Brimstone Toad you, what Business, have ye with my Master, let him go, or I'll call my Brother Watchman, and have ye to the Round-House directly, And, Ah Master! says I, my dear Master, come away from that Hang-in-Chains Bitch. - Yes I did call her Bitch, that I did, my Lord, and I can't deny it. - She'll certainly pick your Pocket, says I, or Serve you a worse Trick. - Come, come don't expose yourself, but all signify'd nothing, he swore she was a Girl for his Fancy, and he would go with her, and so they went together, but it had been better for him if he had taken his poor Watchman's Advice.</p>
<p>The Prisoner in her Defence, deny'd that she had ever seen the Prosecutor before he apprehended her, and then call'd several Witnesses, who depos'd that the Morning the Prosecutor was robb'd, he charged them with picking his Pocket, and sometimes he swore he could not tell who had done it.

And so she led me up Stairs into her Room, and we sat down upon the Bed together; I staid with her 2 or 3 Hours, and no body came near us, but the good Woman of the House, when she brought the Liquor we call'd for. I think I spent about 5 or 6 Shillings in Drams, which I paid for as they come in, the 4 Guineas were wrapt in a piece of Paper, I took them out with my other Money, and put them up again into my Fob, but I had not been long upon the Bed with her, before I mist'em. I told her of it, and she ran down into the Street, and I after her, and the Constable stopt her, and when she was searched, my Handkerchief and Pocket Book, the 4 Guineas, and the Paper that they were wrapt in, were all found upon her, and near her.</p>
<p>The Constable thus depos'd. The Prisoner was running along the Street, and the Country Man after her as fast as he could, for he was very drunk, they rais'd a Mob between them. I stopt her, she let one Guinea fall, another I took out of her Hand, and 2 more out of her Mouth, and the Pocket Book and Handkerchief, were found upon hers.</p>
<p>The Prisoner thus made her Defence. When the Prosecutor met me, he was very drunk, and would needs follow me in Doors. He took out the 4 Guineas, thrust them down my Bosom one by one, and then he threw me upon the Bed, and as we were struggling together, his Pocket Book fell out of his Pocket as I suppose, for the Minute he was gone down Stairs I found it, and ran after him, to give it him again, and then he said I had pickt his Pocket.
