<p>The Council for the King opened to the Court, that the Prisoners being Persons of ill Fame, and having in their Custody a false forged and counterfeit Note, did publish the same Fraudulently for a true Note, knowing it to be false and counterfeit, and thereby intending to cheat and defraud Samuel Edwards, Esq; and other his Majesty's Subjects, with the said forg'd and counterfeit Writing. That it was a melancholy Scene to see a Clergyman in that Habit Mr. Kinnersley appearing at the Bar in a Clergyman's Habit, arraign'd for such unjust Proceedings, in being concern'd with Mr. Hales, in contriving counterfeiting and forging this Note, for which they stood indicted. That the good Nature of Mr. Edwards, in giving frank Covers to Mr. Hales, had given them this Opportunity to counterfeit a Note, and contrive Mr. Edward's Name to the Indorsment. That the Hand Writing in the Body of the Note was Mr. Kinnersley's. That the Paper on which the Note was drawn, appear'd to have been cut, or torn from some Writing, the Bottom of several Letters being visible at the Top of the Note, and the Note cut, and as it were indented to give the more Room for the Note to he wrote on, that the Word Free, as in all Probability, and even Appearance, was upon the Note, was chang'd to the Word For, to serve the Purpose of the Prisoners. That the Ink and in the o, which as in the other Note was crouded between the F and the r, and the additional Writing were much blacker than the Name

That Mr. Edwards and Mr. Kinnersley, if they knew one another, never had any Dealings together, nor could there be any Foundation, for a Note of such Consequence, as that of 1260 l. That Mr. Kinnersley had confess'd his Writing all the Body of the Note. That they had so managed the Affair, as to get the Sum of 750 l out of one Mr. Bird, upon the Credit of this counterfeit Note, which they deposited in his Hands. That when Mr. Bird demanded the Money of Mr. Kinnersley, he said, he was a poor undone Man, and Mr. Bird must apply to Mr. Edwards, who indors'd it, and was a wealthy Man.

To which Mr. Kinnersley answer'd, he was indebted to Mr. Hales for more than the Sum mentioned in that Note, and Mr. Hales asking him for a Note, he desir'd to know who he should make it payable too, and Mr. Hales directed him to draw it payable to Mr. Edwards; and going further, as to the Note being indors'd, pretendedly by Mr. Edwards, which he know of, and acknowledg'd to Mr. Bird, before he had seen the Note; he was stopp'd by one Mr. Mitford.</p>

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="172901160007"/>He told of his running and sending after him to little Effect, but at length got Admittance into his House and Person, though he had been before deny'd. Mr. Kinnersley asking his Business, he said, A young Couple wanted to be marry'd with a License, and he heard he had Licenses by him; that they waited at the Magpye Tavern near Aldgate, and desir'd he would perform the Ceremony. That Mr. Kinnersley ask'd him the Man's Name, which he said, was Bird of Fleet-street; and farther asking if she the young Gentlewoman was of Age, he said he could not tell; and asking if she had the Consent of her Father, he said no, to which Mr. Kinnersley answered, He would not marry them for a hundred Pounds, the Penalty for doing such an Action was 50 l. by Law. That he then ask'd Mr. Kinnersley to drink a Glass of Wine with him, at the Magpye at Aldgate, and satisfy the young Gentlewoman, and her Brother, who was with her, that he did not care to undertake it; but Mr. Kinnersley would not go with him. This he said, was to decoy him into the Freedom, for his Warrant did not extend to the Suburbs, where Mr. Kinnersley lived; but this Sham not taking, he waited, and had his Ends soon after.</p>
<p>The Council for Mr. Kinnersley observ'd on this Conduct of his, That he acted like a Man of Conscience, in not performing an Act so unlawful, tho' so frequently practis'd.</p>
<p>The Council for the King then said, they would endeavour to prove, That Mr. Hales, and Mr. Kinnersley, had for the last seven Months, before this Prosecution, frequently had private Meetings together, in such Manner, as it might be reasonably be believed they mutually agreed together to form these Designs, and doubtless Mr. Kinnersley was Guilty of this Forgery.</p>

<p>Mr. Brooks (who keeps Brook's Coffee-House in Downing-Street Westminster) depos'd, That Mr. Hales, and Mr. Kinnersley, frequently met at his House; that Mr. Kinnersley would come first, and send a Porter, or his Servant to Mr. Hales, who would come, and then they went up Stairs, and that they have refus'd a Candle, when he sent it up by the Boy, in the Dusk of the Evening.</p>

<p>The Council for the King, made the same Observations as before, on the other counterfeit Note, that they were wrote on the Covers, frank'd by Mr. Edwards, and by crouding one Letter, and obliterating another, it had been so order'd, as to pass for a true Note; and it being in the Hands of Mr. Hales, on the 22d of May last, he carry'd it to one Mr. Thrup, and upon the Credit of this false counterfeit Note, Mr. Thrup lent him in Notes to the Value of 400 l.</p>
<p>Mr. Maddox, Mrs. Clark, Mr. Booth, and Mr. Spicer, depos'd as before, to prove the Methods made use of by Mr. Hales, to procure frank Covers of Mr. Edwards, &c. And then,</p>
<p>Mr. Thrup depos'd, That on the 22d of September last, Mr. Hales brought this Note to him (holding it in his Hands) and desir'd him to lend 400 l. in Notes on it, which he did at that Time, reposing so much Confidence in Mr. Hales as to think he could not be Guilty of so vile an Action; that the Money was not yet paid, nor had the Note been alter'd.</p>
