They could not Work without them, and so they went to the Alehouse; while they were there, the Prisoner Lightfoot came into a Hog-butchers Yard with 2 Axes, and an Iron Square, which he set down by a Tub, and went out again, without saying any thing. The Hog-butcher's Men at first thought that the Capenters were coming there to work; but seeing Lightfoot come again, and saunter about the Gate, one of them said, I believe that Fellow is a Thief, upon which Lightfoot curs'd and swore, and went off. When presently a Man came, and said, a Parcel of Carpenters Tools were stolen out of a House in Well-Close-Square. The Butchers went out, and saw the other Prisoner Spaule, in a Leather-Apron, and with a Nail

<interp inst="t17320525-4-person72" type="gender" value="male"/> </persName> (with whom I had some Acquaintance) brought the Prisoners to my House to get a Lodging for them. Bradley went for the Mistress, and Holms for the Maid. The Mistress had (as she still has) a sort of a scurvy Humour broke out in her Face; she said it came by a Surfeit that she got with Dancing, and that she was going for Holland, to try if drinking the Waters at the Spaw would do her any good. I could not spare Lodging-Room at my House for any more than Maccartney, and so I recommended the Prisoners to Mrs. Jackson for a Bed; but they used to eat and drink at my House, for which in 5 Days they run up 18 s. I saw no Money they had till just before they took Coach, and then Bradley gave me 2 Half-Guineas to take my Reckoning, out of which I did, and returned her 3 s. Maccartney fetch'd a Coach, and he and the 2 Prisoners went in, and Bradley bid the Coachman drive to St. James's-street directly. As it happened, I took so much Notice of the Coachman as to know him again; he wore a blue Coat; he was lame in one Foot, and his Shoe was cut to give it Ease. About 10 at Night, Mrs. Jackson came and told me she was robb'd, and I went next Morning in search after the Coachman, and at last I found him at the Saracen's Head in Camomile-street. I ask'd him to what Place he drove those two Women and the Man? he said at first that he did not care to tell me, because they had charged him not to let me know, if he happened to see me. But after a little Talk with him, he said, Well, Master, you look like a good honest Man, and if you'll give me a Pot I'll tell you. I call'd for a Pot of Beer, and then he told me, that when he had carried them a little way, they order'd him to drive to Billinsgate, where they took Water for Greenwich. I told Mrs. Jackson of this, she went with me, and we found out the Waterman who carried them, and went with him to Greenwich. He brought us to the Porter who had help'd them to a Lodging. Mrs. Jackson went to a Justice for a Warrant, and as she was coming back, Maccartney happened to see her, upon which he ran to the Waterside, took Oars for London, and escaped. We went to the Prisoners Room, and met with 'em both. We searched 'em, but could find nothing about 'em that Mrs. Jackson could swear to but this Shilling.</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173205250005"/>Mrs. Jackson. I know this Shilling to be Part of the Money that I lost out of my Drawer ; it looks blackish, I suppose it had lain in Gun-powder before I took it; I remember I scupled it and made this Scratch to see if it was good, and besides, here's a little Dent just by the Edge.</p>
<p>Bradley, the Prisoner. After I got out of Newgate. I met with Holms, and we went to a Friend's House, and enquired for a Lodging. A Woman who was there told us, that her Brother Macartney had an Acquaintance who kept an Ale-house, in White-Lyon-street, by Rag-Fair, at which House she believed we might lye; but when we came thither, there was not Room for us, but Mr. Baily, the Man of the House, provided us a Lodging at the Prosecutor's, who lived next Door to him. Mrs. Holms and I had agreed to go to Holland with Capt. Allen, but while we waited for the Ship's setting Sail, we happened to quarrel, and she threatned to tell Mrs. Jackson that I came out of Newgate, upon which I was resolv'd to leave that Lodging.</p>
<p>Court. Why did you at first order the Coachman to go to St. James's, and as soon as you were got out of the Prosecutor's Hearing, bid him drive to Billingsgate ?</p>
<p>Bradley. Because at first Mrs. Holms intended t o go to her Sister in St. James's, but soon after she chang'd her mind, and was willing to go with me. The Jury

I told her, I could by no means suffer any such thing, for People would say, that I let out my Lady's House in Lodgings when she was from Home. But Mrs. Newman would take no Denial, and so at last she over-persuaded, and brought the Prisoner. The Prisoner staid with me 2 Days, and in that time she told me as many Lies as this Court would hold, though I believ'd them all at first. She said that she had liv'd at 'Squire Goare's in Great Monmouth-street 3 Years, that her Father and Mother had kept the George-Inn in Northampton, but were lately dead, and had left all they had betwixt her and her Brother, who was Master of a Stage-Coach at the Brook-Bar in Holborn. There was not a Lady that past by the Window with any thing rich in her Dress, but this Creature told me that she had got such another. On the 2d Day she was with me, I left her within, and went out to St. James Market to get something for Dinne, I staid about 2 Hours, and when I came back I found her standing at the Door. She said, a Girl had been these to tell her of a Place, and she was going to see it, and desired me not to go to Dinner till she came back, but I never saw her impudent Face any more till she was taken up. I soon found she had robbed the House, and I went to enquire after her at 'Squire Goare's, but could hear nothing of her there. I was directed to one Mrs. Banister, with whom she had liv'd, and whose Name she took upon her self when she came to me. By her means I heard the Prisoner was gone to Service at Mrs. Duncan's Boarding-School at Islington; I went thither, but it was too late, she had lived there but 3 Weeks, and then was discharged. At last I found her at one Goddard's in St. Mary lx, where she had met with a Husband. I was told that she robbed Mrs. Kirby before she robbed me.</p>

But the Prosecutor sitting down upon the Bench at the Door with some others, he told them, that he had not spent all his Money yet, for he had enough left to pay for a Crown Bowl of Punch. Upon hearing this, we concluded that he was the fittest Man for our Purpose. It was not long before he got up, and went away in Company with 3 Men and 2 Women. We followed at a Distance till his Company parted with him, and then mending our Pace, we came up to him in Sun-Tavern-Fields and stapp'd him; we took some Half pence from him, and his Hat and Wig, and Coat and Waistcoat, and Shoes; we knock'd him down, and Osborn stabb'd him in the Hand, and so we left him, and were going quite away, but Osborn said, Damn him, he knows me, I'll go buk and give him another Stab; and so he did.

Osborn pull'd off his own ragged Coat, and left it in Stepney-Fields, and put on that as we took from the Prosecutor.

I asked him how he could serve me so, to take away all that I had? He paused a little and said, he was very sorry for what he had done. I went in with him, he gave me back my Mole Skins, with 45 Guineas, and some Silver, and told me, that it was all that he had left. I asked him what he had done with the rest, he said, he had spent it, and given it away; that besides the Guinea for Horse hire and a Guinea for the Hackney Coach, he gave the Man that rode with him in the Coach 6 Guineas for bearing him Company from London to Highgate.

Here's a promissary Note (says he) of Mr. Brumton's, payable to Mr. Olivant at six Months, and Mr. Olivant has indors'd it; they are both good Men, they belong'd to the Exchequer. I told him I would take the Note in Payment, if I could be satisfy'd that it was good. He said he'd leave it with me, and I might make Enquiry; and so he did. I went to the Exchequet, and enquired of one of the Clerks there if he knew Mr. Brunton and Mr. Olivant. He said, Yes. I told him I had a Note of theirs for 50 l. If it was for 500 l says he, your Money would be safe, for they are both very good men. I asked him if I could see either of em? He said No they were both out of Town. I asked him, if he knew their Hand Writing? He said, No. And so I return'd home. Warren came again, and the Prisoner with him. I asked Warren [aside] how the Prisoner came to have this Note of Mr. Olivant? Why, says he, When Mr. Cheesborough was in his Prosperty he lent Mr. Olivant a considerable Sum of Money; and now in Gratitude. Mr. Olivant has lent him this Note. As Mr. Cheesborough is going to Sea, he's very much straiten'd for Time; and a short Delay now will be a great Hindrance to him: And therefore I must desire you to come to a resolution as soon as possible. Upon this I let the Prisoner have the Goods, and he indors'd the Note with his own Name. Two Days afterwards, having some Business at Whiteball I called at the Exchequer and met with a Friend of mine, whom I could not find when I was there before. He brought me to a Gentleman there, who (when I shew'd him the Note) told me, that I was impos'd on, that the Note was neither writ nor indors'd by either Mr. Brumton or Mr. Olivant, and the Writing was quite different from theirs.

But I never had the Goods, for Warren went off with them all, and I lost Money by him besides.</p>
<p>Court to the Prosecutor. You say, that Warren apply'd to you first. Did he apply for Goods on his own Account, or on the Prisoner's?</p>
<p>Mr. Prue. He said the Goods were for the Prisoner; I delivered none for Warren's Use. but all for the Prisoner's. The Prisoner gave me the Note, and indors'd it with his own Name, and told me, that he was going Abroad. He indeed desir'd Warren to look out the Goods; for he said, that he himself did not understand 'em. As to the Prisoner's not having the Goods, I have heard indeed that Warren was too cunning for him, and got the Goods from on Board the Ship, with other Goods of the Prisoner's, to the Value of 7 or 8 l. The Prisoner was to have been try'd last Sessions, but he broke out of Newgate, and went to Carlisle, from whence he was brought back by a Habeas Corpus. The Jury found him

I calls up my Landlord; Landlord, says I, I have lost my old Shoes, I am ruined! He looks about, And so am I too, says he. We presently thought the Fellow that had lain in the empty House was the Thief. And so away goes I to Field-Lane, for you must note, that when these Fellows steal Shoes, they sell them in or about Field-Lane or Rag-Fair, but Boats they carry to Charing-Cross. As good Luck would have it, I soon met with my Chap at one of those Shops, where they Vamp up old Shoes; he was offering one of these Pairs to Sale, but I suppose he would not offer the other Pair for fear of being suspected, for I had sky'd the Soles, ready for new soleing. I collar'd my Gentleman; he immediately said, if I would go to the Alehouse he would make every thing easy. I told him I would not compound Felony, I was going to search him, but he himself took these 2 pair of Fare-sticks, this pair of Nippers, this Pully, and Knife and Brush out of his own Pockets; and this Saw and 2 pair of Shoes we found in the empty House.</p>

I was drinking with Spaul and Shaw, at the Black-Boy in Well-street, till 11 at Night, and from thence we went together into Goodman's-Yard; there was a Place pailed in, where some Houses were building; Shaw got over the Pails, and then handed a Ladder over to us, by the Help of which we got over too, and pull'd the Ladder after us, and raised it up against the Side of the Dwelling-house. Our first Design was to steal Lead, but it stuck so hard, that in pulling it up, some of the Mortar sell thro' into the Wash-house upon the Brass Porridge pots, which we perceiving, we thought the Pots would be a better Booty than the Lead, and so we untiled Part of the Wash-house, and put the Ladder in, and Spaul went down, and brought the Goods up to us. When we had got what we thought convenient, we haul'd the Ladder up, and set it again against the Pails: Spaul went over first, and I and Shaw handed the Things to him, and then followed; we carried them all to Warfield's House; her Husband keeps a Smith's Shop, but I have no Acquaintance with him. We knock'd at the Fore-Door, and a Man within (I don't know who he was) bid us go to the Back-Door, which we did; you go down Steps to the Back-Door.

From Newgate I was remov'd to Clerkenwell, when I was made an Evidence. A Warrant was afterwards granted to search Warfield's House, and I went thither with an Officer.</p>
