We went to another Pawnbroker, but she was a Bed, and would not get up. Then we went to Mrs. Radford's for a Lodging, but she would not let us lye there, and so we came away again. Then Jack says, I'll go and see if Radford will buy the Things, but do you stand at a Distance, for, if she sees you, she won't meddle with them. Well, Sir, says we to Jack, do you go by your self, and make as good a Bargain as you can. So away goes Jack, and by and by he comes again, and tells us she would give 2 Guineas and a half. Well, Sir, says we, take the Money if you can get no more, and so he goes again and brings us the Money; and now, says he, you ought to give me the odd half Guinea for my Pains: No, Sir, says we, you are a little too hard with us then, we think 6 s. is pretty well; so we gave him 6 s. and went to share the rest among our selves, but could not agree about it. Whereof , says Jack, don't make a Noise here, but go by your selves and share the Money, except you'll go with me to my Lodgings in Kent-street, and there I'll make a Fire with a whole Peck of Coals and a Faggot. No, Sir, says I, we thank you for your Love, but I don't care to venture on that side of the Water, for fear of meeting with my Mistress; and so we left Jack, and went to a Tavern Door to divide the Money, and there we quarrelled about it; whereof I went to Mrs. Markham some time after , and inform'd her of the whole; and she went to Mrs. Radford's to search for the Goods, but could not find them.

He went to the Tap-house at the Inn, but found no body there that sent for the Pies. As he was returning, he met Coventry, the other Prisoner, under the Gate-way, My Lad, says Coventry, have ye brought the Pies? Yes, Sir, says the Boy, but I can find no body that wants 'em. O! says Coventry, you went to the wrong Place; they should go to that House (pointing to a House in the Inn-Yard) but have you brought Change? No, says the Boy, I thought I could get Change at the Inn. Then I can't pay for the Pics, says Coventry, for I have been at every House hereabouts for Change, but can't get it, and therefore you must go back again, and fetch some. The Boy went home again, and related what had pass'd between him and Coventry. The Family in the House Coventry pointed to were Customers to the Prosecutor, which gave the less Suspicion, and the Boy was sent again with Change, but with a Caution, however, not to deliver the Change, or Pies, till he had the half Guinea. In returning he met the Prisoner Bird; What, says she, han't ye carried the Pies yet? No, says he, I have been back for Change. Well, says she, give me the Pies, and I'll take care of 'em. He was unwilling to part with 'em, but she got 'em from him, and presently up comes Coventry, and ask'd him for the Change. You shall have it, says the Boy , but give me the half Guinea first; upon which Coventry fumbled in his Pocket a little, and then suddenly gave the Boy a Punch on his Breast, snatch'd the Money out of his Hand, and ran away. The Boy then kept close to the Woman, who led him thro' several Streets, under Pretence of looking for the Man, till thinking she had an Opportunity to escape, she threw down the Pies in Gillspur-street , and said, Now catch me if you can. He cry'd out, Stop Thief! and she was taken. The Jury found them

<p>Mr. Chapel. I took a Place in the Oxford Coach at Uxbridge , and gave a Portmanteau to the Coachman, who put it behind. About Hillington , Mr. Lutwych look'd out of the Coach, and said, There's the One-ey'd Boy that has follow'd the Coach from Oxford. I think I have seen him try'd at Oxford. The Boy still follow'd , and coming into Town he got up behind. I look'd out several times, and saw him and the Portmanteau behind the Coach, but in Bondstreet I saw him running with the Portmanteau under his Arm. I call'd after him, bade the Coachman stop, and got out to pursue him, but he gave me the slip. On Thursday Night last he was taken in Lincolns-Inn Play-house, in attempting to pick the Pocket of Mr. Bulgress. The Fact being plainly prov'd, the Jury found him
