The Prisoners and others were playing at Skettles, I made one among them, we afterwards went to Cards. Cundell lost a great deal, and having no Money left, he desir'd me to pay 4 d. for him, which I did, and he in pretence of returning the Civility, would needs go home with me over the Fields, for it was then about 11 at Night, and Turner said, he was going the same way, and would bear us company.

So I went to the Spaw next Day, and enquir'd after them. There happen'd to be somebody that knew Cundell, who was taken that Day.</p>
<p>The Constable depos'd. that when Cundell was taken, he discover'd Turner, and desir'd to be made an Evidence. Mr. Sanderson and his Wife thus depos'd. The Evening before the Prosecutor was rob'd, he was Drunk and very abusive, and the next Day he said that they forced him to lay the Wagers, and so got his Money from him. The Place where he lost his Money, was near some Houses in Lambs Conduit Fields, where a Watch was kept, but he did not call out. And said farther, that he did not know the Prisoners but by their Cloaths.

Not long after which the Prisoner, and another Woman or two, went into a Mercers Shop, the backside of St. Clements, to cheapen some Goods, and soon after they were gone, a Piece of Silk was missing. These Women, and others of their Profession, had been often at Several Shops in that Neighbourhood, so that they were pretty well known. He acquainted several Shopkeepers thereabouts with his loss, and it was not long before one of them saw the Prisoner, and one of the Woman aforesaid, as they were making another Tour; He gave the Mercer notice, who traced them to the House of - Johnson a Victualler, at the Thistle and Crown, in Denmark Court. Where he searched for his Goods to no purpose, but he found the Brocaded Silk in the Indictment, which was made into a Gown, and Lin'd with a Pink colour'd Mantua. The Prisoner own'd the Gown to be hers, and said that she bought it of the Maker, at the George Ale-house by Stocks Market, (a House frequented by Weavers,) but her Husband being a Journey-man Shooe-maker, he thought such a Gown was too fine for her, and therefore threatned to burn it, to prevent which, she had persuaded Johnson to let it lye at his House. Several Mercers were sent for, to see if they knew the Silk, Mr. Moone was one of that number, and found the Brocade to be his.</p>

We went to Mr.Herbert's Shop, I cheapen'd some Straw colour'd Mantua for an Apron, for which they asked 3 s. and 2 d. a Yard, and I offer'd them 2 s. and 10 d. In the mean time the Prisoner took a Piece of Pink Mantua, and we went away undiscover'd. We measur'd it at her Lodging, and found there was 42 Yards, which we equally divided. She bade me 3 s. for my half, but I told her I could have more for it, she said she'd line her Gown with part of her own half, and I believe this Lining to be the same. - I afterwards sold my half to Ann Green, who is not yet taken.

Why indeed my Dear, says I again, I have got no Money at present, but if you'll oblige me so and so, I'll make ye Amends the next Time I see ye, for I live but a little Way off. Truly, says she, I can do nothing without ready Money, for I can't afford to trust. - Indeed my Dear you must for this once. - Will you be as good as your Word then? - Yes indeed I will Child. - Well then if I must, I must, and so, Sir, I laid her upon the Ground, for she was not afraid of daubing her Cloths, because she was then in as dirty a Pickle as she is in now. But however as foul as she was, I can't deny but that I did commit that filthy Sin upon her, and just in the Heat of Action, she cry'd out, The Watch, the Watch is a coming, get away and shift for your self. So I got off, and turn'd my Back upon her, and put up my Breeches, but the Watch not coming, I went to the Porch and felt for her there, but she was gone; then I felt in my Pockets, and found that all was lost. Well, says I, to my self, The Bitch had robb'd me, she has taken away every Thing that I had about me; my very Hair and Bladder and all, and I am an undone Man! So having no body to make my Apology to, I e'en walk'd home in that Condition. When she was taken, she said that she did not take the Things out of my Pocket, but found them in the Porch.</p>

<p>Mr. Disney thus depos'd. On Saturday the 13th of August, I was sent for to visit the Deceas'd. He was lying upon his Bed, and complaining of a Cold that he got by crossing the Water, in his Return from Dr. Lloyd's Feast, that he had had a Pain in his Head, Back, and Limbs, and had since been taken with a Purging two or three Times a Day, which had partly remov'd his Pains. I advis'd him to Rhubarh to take off the Purging; and on Monday following I saw him again, and he was them pretty easy, and she Purging gone. - He sent for me again about 10 the same Night, and ask'd me if he might venture to go to Knights-Bridge next Morning, I advis'd him to stay a little longer, for I found him in a breathing Sweat, and a declining Feaver, which I thought would prove intermiring. I administred a proper Draught, and he was easier next Day, being Tuesday; but about 4 in the Afternoon his Feaver return'd, which left him in a breathing Sweat as before. About 10 at Night his Servant came to me, with a Vial of Liquid, which he said was sent to his Master by Mr. Godfrey, the Chymist, with Orders to take about half a Pint at Night, and as much in the Morning. I took it to be an Emulsion made with Orange-Flower Water, &c. and told the Servant that if Mr. Godfrey sent it, his Master might take it safely. - I went to visit the Deceas'd next Morning, and understood that he had taken thrice of that Emulsion, about a quarter of a Pint each Time. I found him very faint, and he told me that he had above 40Sou the preceeding Night, and was extreamly grip'd and crampt. I went to Mr.

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="172608310006"/> had not sent any Thing. - I gave the Deceas'd Rhubarb, Diascordium, and a Cordial I Draught, he sometimes grew worse, and sometimes mended a little, till the Sunday following, and then he voided Blood, and dyed on the succeeding Wednesday Morning. I saw him when he was open'd. I could discover no Symptom of Poison in his Stomach, it was indeed a little enflamed, but no more than what commonly happens from a violent Dysentery or Diarrhaea. The Guts were lined with Blood, I did not observe an Excoriation, for I did not see the Blood taken out; But However that Emulsion, might possibly be the cause of his Death, for though I am satisfied that there was nothing Poisonous put into it, yet there might be something which might throw him into that violent Laxity.</p>
<p>Mr. Belcher the Apothecary thus depos'd. I open'd the Stomach of the Deceas'd, and found no Inflamation till I came to the Duodenum, which was a little enflam'd. The great Guts were fill'd with Blood and Excrement, and bylous Juices, as is usual in Dysentries which ensue Diarrheas. I saw not the least Sympton of Poison, and verily believe that he dy'd a natural Death; I tasted some of the Emulsion that was left, it was grown a little Acid with keeping. I could not discover, that there was any thing Poisonous, or Hurtful, but I took it to be a Cooling Innocent Draught, made of Almonds, Barly-water, Orange Flower-water, Sugar, and some other harmless Ingredients. - I advis'd them to make some tryal of its Effect, upon a Puppy, or a Kitling, but they said, there was not enough left, to make the Experiment. - I cannot think that it was the Cause of the Deceaseds Death.</p>
<p>Mr. Godfrey the Chymist depos'd. That he knew nothing of sending that Emulsion to the Deceas'd, but he had try'd several Chymical Experiments upon what was left of it, and could not find, that it was in the least Poisonous, Purgative, or any way Hurtfull.</p>
<p>Dr. Hollings depos'd. That he believ'd the Potion was not Poisonous, and it might be a natural violent Looseness, that put an End to the Life of the Deceas'd.</p>
<p>Mrs. Smith thus depos'd. I live at the Bedford Coffee-House, on Monday Evening, the Prisoner with an elderly Gentlewoman and a Girl, came thither. and had a Pint of Attack made into Punch, after which, they desir'd something Cool, I brought her a Drink, which we call Oziat, which they drank, and the Prisoner liked it so well, that she took a Pint away with her, for which she paid a Shilling.</p>

On Tuesday Night, as I was sitting by the Fire, my Mistress call'd me to her, and said, Mary, I'll trust no body but you, I was last Night at the Bedford Coffee house, where I drank some pleasant Cool Liquor, and I brought this Pint home with me. Mr. Shovat at next Door. is ill of a Feaver, and I believe it will do him good, and therefore I'd have you carry it to him, - hold the Bottle by the Neck, that your Hands may heat it, as little as possible. - I was going with it, when bethinking my self, Pray Madam says I, if they should ask who sent it, what shall I say - Why tell them says my Mistress, that you brought it from Mr. Godfrey, and that Mr. Shovat must drink half a Pint to Night, and the rest in the Morning. So I carried it, and the next Day Mr. Godfrey came to our House very angry, and asked who it was, that carried any thing in his Name, to Mr. Shovat's, I told him that I had, and (as my Mistress had Instructed me;) that I had it from a Gentleman in Black, who came to our House, and whom I have seen several times is Mr. Shovats Company, Mr. Godfrey was in a great Pasion; and said that such a thing was enough to ruin his Credit, for Mr. Shovat was dangerously ill after it. He threatn'd me hard, and had me before a Justice, to make me discover who the Gentleman in black was, my Master Bail'd me. The Deceas'd grew worse, I was sadly frighten'd, and my Mistress appear'd very much concern'd, who would have thought, says she, that that Innocent Emulsion, should have done the poor Gentleman any hurt. But don't you be afraid, you can come to no harm, and I beg of you, not to tell who you had it of, for if it should be known, I shall be ruin'd, and that's what my Neighbours want. Now I knew as how that some of the Neighbours had been saying, as if my Master had been Jealous of Mr. Shovat, and therefore thought, if I told that my Mistress had sent him any thing, it might make them talk but the more, and bring her into a great deal of trouble, and so when I was carried before the Justice again, I still stood it out, that a Gentleman in black gave the Bottle; I was sent to the Round-house. Mr. Shovat dy'd, and at last it all came out. - I never knew that there had ever been a Quarrel, or Malice between the Deceas'd, and my mistress, he frequented our House, till the Day that he was taken ill.</p>

The Prisoner's maid brought the Emulsion, told me that it came from Mr. Godfrey, and that he order'd her, to see it carry'd up to my Master, but she being in haste, she went away before my Mistress came down.</p>
<p>Mrs. Shovat thus depos'd - I had been Married to the Deceas'd, about 10 Months. - I was call'd down to receive this Emulsion, which my Man told me, was left by Mr. Sherman's Cook. I sent for her, she told me it was given her, by a tall Man in black, who order'd her to say, it came from Mr. Godfrey; I ask'd her if Mr. Godfrey knew Mr. Shovat had a Feavor, she said yes, I ask'd if there was no strong Waters in it, she said it was an innocent Cool thing, and I might taste if I pleas'd. - I told her I had. She went away; I came in to my Husband, who being willing to have Mr. Disneys Opinion of it, he sent it to him. - Mr. Disney sent word, that he believ'd it was innocent, and if it came from Mr. Godfrey, he might venture to take it. So I set it by the Bed-side, and at three several times, I gave my Spouse a Quarter of a Pint of it - He was taken very ill about; in the Morning, he had a violent purging, the Gripes, Cramps, and Fainting Fits, and so he continued till Saturday, and then he voided several Ounces of Blood, and dy'd the Wednesday Morning following.</p>
<p>The Prisoner thus made her Defence. I acknowledge that I sent that Liquor to the Deceas'd, but as I had drank of it my self, and found it very harmeless, Cooling, and Pleasant, I thought it might do good, or at least no hurt to the Deceas'd in his illness, to whom I bore a respect as he was a Neighbour, a Customer, and a very Civil Gentleman. His free and familiar Carriage, had indeed created some uneasiness in my Husband, and from thence a few spitefull Neighbours, had taken occasion to be very liberal of their Censures, and therefore I was Cautious, in sending him that small present.</p>
<p>Mr. Shaw the Surgeon thus depos'd. I open'd the Deceas'd Body, the Day after his Death, and found not the least Symptom of Poison, nor any thing but what is common, and the natural Effect of Diarrhea and Dysentries. I have seen many in the like Case. - I drank half a mouthfull of the Emulsion that was left, and it did me no hurt, and I would have drank it all if desir'd, for I have frequently drank the same sort at the Coffee-house, and can depend upon my taste, that there was nothing mixt with it; Half a Pint of small Beer, or any other cool Liquid, would have had the same Effect, in the like distemper.

The Man was tall and thin, in a dark brown Coat, and a light Wig. He rode upon a black Beast with a white Bridle; I could not exactly observe his Face, because his Back was mostly towards me - On the Friday following, I went to see the Mare and the Prisoner, and do really believe that the Mare is the same, but I am not quite so certain as to the Man. However I had some talk with him, and he told me at first, that his Mare had not been out of the Stable, that Evening the Robbery was Committed, but afterwards he said, that his boy had taken her out to Water.</p>
<p>Mr. Wyersdale again depos'd. That when the Prisoners boy was Examin'd about the Mare, he said that he rode her to Bartholomew Fair, and return'd about 7 at Night. Most of this Deposition was corroberuted by

<p>The Prisoner in his Defence, call'd several Witnesses to prove, that he was at another Place, when the Robbery was committed, who thus depos'd.</p>
<p>Mr. Pitman din'd with the Prisoner, after which they went together through Swan Fields, where the Prisoner had some work to do. There he found his Boy, and (it being Bartholomew Day) gave him half a Holiday, and order'd him to ride his Mare out to water in the Evening. - From thence they two went to Mrs. Barnets at Jeremy's Ferry, she owing the Prisoner some Money for work, and paid him 5 Guineas, he gave her a Receipt which was produced in Court. They staid drinking there till after 7 in the Evening. and then came away together. They were overtaken near the Shoulder of Mutton, by Mr Herbert a Bricklayer, who went with them to the Salmon and Ball, and call'd for a Pint of Wine, it was then about half an hour past 8. They had not sat long before a Hackney Coach came by, and the Coachman told somebody at the Door, that the Coach had been rob'd, by a Highwayman upon Cambridge heath, (which was but a little way from thence,) about 9 a Clock, they all three went to the Prisoner's Door, where Mr. Herbert left them, but Pitman kept him Company till a 11 a Clock, and he was sure, that the Prisoner was not upon any Horse or Mare that Night.</p>
<p>The Coachman depos'd, that he call'd at the Salmon and Ball Door, and told somebody that the Coach had been rob'd upon Cambridge-heath. And the Prisoners Boy depos'd. That between 6 and 7 a Clock in the Evening, he rode the Mare out to water upon Cambridge heath and return'd at 7 or a little after, and lockt the Mare up in the Stable, and he was sure she was out no more that Night.

How do ye Molly, says I, and how d'ye do Jerry says she. Now I was then out of Business, the Coach belonged to Jessup, and he had made several Turns from St. Giles's Pound, and so he asked me to go and drink, which I agreed to, and Molly left the other Man and went along with us. When we came from the Alehouse she would not go into the Coach, except I went in with her which I did. And she was well enough pleas'd with what past, for if any thing had troubled her she might have made Noise enough, and there were People enow in the Road agoing from the Fair - I have lain with her a whole Week together, at the King's-Arms in St. Martin's lane, for I was got upon the Loose then, and it cost me 7 half Crowns in Expences. - We have bedded together twenty and twenty Times in a Hayloft.</p>

He and she lay at one end, and I at the other. - I heard her bid him lye close and keep her warm, and desir'd him not to let me have any thing to say to her, but for all that, when he had pleas'd his Fancy, he fell asleep, and then I crept softly to her, and found she was willing that I should keep her warm too, for in short I did the same as he had done with her before. - I met him and her about a Year afterwards, and then she told him she could not do with him as before, for now she was married.</p>

The Ostler at the Bell thus depos'd. The Prosecutor came in and said 2 Men, that had swore Treason against him, dog'd him, and he was afraid to go home. I took a Gun loaded with small Shot, and went with him. - When we came to Old-street, he said he believ'd he was safe, for he could go the back Ways, and miss them. The Prisoners in their Defence, call'd several Witnesses of good Credit, to prove that they were in another Place when this pretended Robbery was committed.
