<p>Mr. Baker depos'd, That he did not perceive that the Blow was given with any Violence, and when the Prisoner found the Boy was hurt, though he nor any of them could in the least apprehend it could be mortal, he was very much concern'd.</p>
<p>Mr. Baron depos'd as the other Evidences had done, and that he had given much greater Blows to his own Son , to his thinking, without doing him any Injury, that the Blow did not seem to him to be given with any Violence; that tho'a Surgeon was sent for, it about 3 Quarters of an Hour before he was came, that when he came, he said, he believ'd he could have saved the Boy's Life if he had been sent for sooner, but now it was too late.</p>

<p>Mr. Tast , a Surgeon, depos'd, That when he came he found the Boy in strong Convulsions, and was surpriz'd his Wound being so very slight to see such Symptoms; that at the first, he did not think that Wound could have been the Cause of his Death; but seeing the Symptoms, he sent for Instruments to trepan him, but before they came he was dead.</p>
<p>Mr. Barnet, the Apothecary, depos'd, That when he came the Boy was in strong Convulsions, and he let him Blood, and he bled freely, that he prob'd his Wound, but could not find that it was fractur'd, and the Surgeon said, it was not, and that at first he thought the Boy had been only frighted, and he did not think such a Blow could have put him into Convulsion-Fits.</p>
<p>The Prisoner call'd several Persons to his Character.</p>
<p>Capt. Mayne depos'd, That he had known the Prisoner 5 Years, and was his Mate to Barbadoes , and he never saw him in a Passion, or strike a Man a Blow all the Voyage.</p>

The Prisoner seeing his Partner distress'd, came and attack'd him (this Evidence) and Edwards ran away. That the Prisoner's Partner falling into the Ditch, and pulling this Evidence upon him, gave him several Wounds with some Instrument, but he knew not with what, and bruised him very much, so that he lay 3 Months at Islington before he recovered of his Wounds and Bruises; that having over-powered him, he bid him deliver his Sword, but he gave it a throw into the Grass, that then he stripp'd him, and saying he had Money in his Shoes, pulled them off, and threw them away.</p>
<p>This Evidence being ask'd, if he was sure the Prisoner was the Person who robbed him? He reply'd, Yes. And that he had many times affirmed, that he should know the two Persons again if ever he should see them; that he had been in quest of the Prisoner ever since he recovered of his Wounds and Bruises, and been several times to search for him in all the Prisons in London; and that going
