<p>The Prosecutor further depos'd, That when the Prisoner was first apprehended, he said, he had Acquaintance with one Nash, who he believ'd broke open the House, the said Nash being very familiar with one who had been the Prosecutor's Maid, and upon this Information the Prosecutor took a Warrant out for Nash, and his Maid, but he did not indict them.
