<p>B. Townsend. I was not at home when the Goods were lost; but hearing of it afterwards, an Advertisement was put in the Papers, by which means, I was informed that the Prisoner lodg'd at Mrs. Howard's, a Coffee-House, in Bell-Savage Yard. I went thither on the 11th of November, and found the Prisoner. I ask'd her, If she was not at my Shop about a Week before to buy Half a Yard of Muslin? She said, Yes. And did you not, says I, take away a Manteel, and a Piece of Velvet? She answered, Yes; and she said, she had made the Velvet into a Hood.</p>

She ask'd to see some Muslin; I order'd Candles to be brought, and then shew'd her some. She wanted Half a Yard, and whilst we were disputing about the Price, another Customer came in, and while I turn'd my back to serve her, I suppose the Prisoner took away the Goods: For the Manteel with a Bill of Parcels pinn'd up in it, lay ready for a Gentleman who had bespoke it, and a Person coming to fetch it, in about Half an Hour after the Prisoner was gone, I miss'd both that, and a Piece of Velvet of about a Yard with a Slope on it. I suspected she had taken it, and told Mr. Townsend so when he came in. I saw her no more till Nov. 11. when she was taken at Mrs. Howard's. She readily confess'd that she took the Manteel and the Piece of Velvet out of the Shop; that she tore the Slope of the Piece of Velvet, and made it into a Hood, and that she burnt the Bill of Parcels.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I don't know what I confess'd; they came on me by Surprize. I own I had the Goods, but they were sent me from the Bath. Are you sure it was I that came to cheapen Muslin?</p>
<p>M. Nicholas. Yes.</p>
<p>Prisoner. What Cloaths had I on?</p>
<p>M. Nicholas. A short Mob and a wash'd Gown; you was clean dress'd, and looked like a tight Girl.</p>

I and my Maid watch'd him (for I had lost some Goods the Saturday before) and we saw him put his Hands behind him, and take a Parcel of white Balladine Silk out of a Wrapper, and thrust into his Bosom. Then he walk'd a Yard or two farther into the Shop, and I went and collar'd him, and order'd my Man to take the Silk out of his Bosom, which he did: I weigh'd it, and sent for a Constable. The Prisoner seemed very much surpriz'd, and said the Devil egg'd him on to do it. This Evidence was corroborated by the Maid and others, and the Jury found him

He was spreading some Butter upon a Roll, and when he had spread one Piece he laid it on the Stall, and begun to spread the other Piece: while he was doing it, the Deceas'd came and took up the Piece that was butter'd, and said, Won't you give me this? And then put it to his Mouth in jest, as if he design'd to eat it, tho' he did not bite a bit of it; but the Prisoner having a Knife in his Hand, struck at the Deceas'd with it. The Deceas'd retreated and fell into a Tub of Blood that stood behind him, and getting out again, he struck the Prisoner, and presently after said, I am a dead Man. Dead, says I, how can that be, I see no Blood? But when I turn'd up his Shirt, I saw his Guts hang out. I carry'd him to Mr. Didier the Surgeon, who sew'd up the Wound, and then he was sent to the Work-House, where he dy'd next Morning.</p>

I did not see the Prisoner stab him, for I was over the Way.</p>
<p>- Boswell. I saw the Prisoner spread half a Roll, and lay it on the Bulk. The Deceas'd took it away, the Prisoner struck at him.

That he fell back, and coming forward again, the Prisoner stab'd him in the Belly. He died about 8 in the Morning.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I had half spread my Roll, and laid it down: The Deceas'd snatch'd it away; I went to save it, and said, pray let's have it, for I am very hungry. No you sha'n't, says he, and then he punch'd and push'd me about, and some how in struggling, while my Knife was in my Hand, he run against it, and then beat me about. So and please your Worship, Master, if so be he had given me my Bread and Butter there had been no Harm done.</p>
<p>Will. Percival, again. I was in the Shop when it begun. The Deceas'd was near the Prisoner while he was spreading the Butter, and the Prisoner run his Knife at him. There was no struggling till then, nor any Words. The Deceas'd laid no Hands on him before the Stab was given.</p>
<p>Court. Did not the Prisoner endeavour to save his Bread and Butter?</p>
<p>Percival. No, for the Deceased came behind him and took it away.</p>
<p>A Butcher. I have known the Prisoner several Years. He is a poor foolish Fellow, and all the Boys in the Market used to make Game of him, and play Tricks with him; I have seen 'em black his Face, and carry him about in a Basket, and then throw him out into a Kennel to wash him; but I never saw him provoked or fall in a Passion at such Usage; so far from it, that when he has got from them he would run into a Corner and laugh at them. He had always a very honest Character, and has often been trusted by me and several others in the Market. I never observ'd any thing like a spiteful revengful Temper in him, let what wou'd be done to him. The Deceased was as vile a Lad as any about the Market; he was so idle, that he sold his Knot and Basket because he would not work, and used to loiter about and sleep upon Bulks.</p>

About six at Night the Prisoner came into the House, and desired me to let him warm himself by the Fire, for he said he had been with a Cart to Edmonton, and was very cold. He beg'd an old Pair of Shoes, upon which, I took Notice that those he had on were very bad; but I did not give him any. He staid till eight o'Clock, and then went away, and I shut up the Door as usual, and went to Supper at the Green Man on Windmill-Hill, and after Supper I returned to the House at the Bar, and went to Bed: Next Morning the Taylor came to mend my Breeches, which I had left in my Room overnight before I went to Supper, and there was two gold Rings, a Guinea and a half, and 2s. and 6d. in a brass Box in the Side-Pocket. I look'd for my Breeches but could not find 'em, and at the same Time I mist my Hat and my Shoes. Searching farther I found the Prisoner's old Shoes, which were tied with Packthread, at the Door, and the Cellar Door was split in two. The Shoes made me suspect the Prisoner. Next Week I met with him. He confess'd that he broke the Cellar-Door with a great Stone, and then thrust the wooden Bolt back, and got and took the Goods; that he had pawn'd the Hat in Golden-lane for 6d. and the Breeches in Turnbull-Street for a 1s. He went with me to those

<p>- Thompson. I took the Prisoner in Coleman-street. I knew him before, and had heard there was a Warrant out against him. He had pilfer'd some Things while he had work'd with me there. I tax'd him with robbing Mr. Sims. He at first denied it, but afterwards own'd that he broke the Cellar-door open with a Stone, and had pawn'd the Hat and Breeches, but said he was drunk when he did it.</p>

I had been gone from thence about half a Year, when having Occasion for some of my Things, I went thither to fetch 'em. Mrs. Pearson went up with me. I found my Box corded and lock'd as I left it, but as soon as I open'd it I miss'd my Goods. Madam, says I, somebody has robb'd me. She seem'd as much surpriz'd as I was my self. The Prisoner had been her Servant, but was then gone away, and was taken up for another Fact: This gave us Occasion to suspect her. We found her at Hicks's-Hall. She confess'd to me that she had lifted up the Lid of the Box without unlocking it, and drawn the Cloaths out and carried them to pawn, at three several Times, to Mr. Hamlin's a Pawn-broker in Drury-lane. She cry'd, and begg'd me not to hang her. We went to the Pawn-broker's, who used us very ill, and told us we should have nothing but what the Law allowed us.</p>
<p>Mrs. Pearson. The Prisoner had been my

When Mrs. Peers mist her Goods, I said to her, I am afraid this Wench has robb'd you. We saw her at Hicks's-Hall, and taking her aside, charg'd her with this Fact. She cry'd, and readily owned it, and said, she hop'd I would be favourable to her, for she had not broke any Lock, but lifted up the Lid of the Box and drawn the Things out, and that she had pawn'd them in Drury-lane. We went to the Pawn-brokers; he deny'd them at first, and would not deliver them till we brought her to him from Bridewell.</p>
<p>Court. What are these Goods worth?</p>
<p>Mrs. Peers. About 10l.</p>
<p>Court. Did she say she took them all at once?</p>
<p>Mrs. Pearson. She said she carried them out of my House at three Times, and so carried them to pawn. She went from me September 12.</p>
<p>Prisoner. They promised me to be merciful if I would confess.</p>
<p>Court. What do you say to that?</p>
<p>Mrs. Pearson. Yes, we did.</p>
<p>Court. Then you did Wrong. You ought not by Promise of Favour to draw Persons into Confession, and then make use of those Confessions to take away their Lives. When Confessions are obtained in such a Manner, they ought to have but little Weight with the Jury.</p>
<p>Mrs. Pearson, We have no Desire to take away her Life.</p>
<p>Court. It may be so. But if the Jury should find that she took the Value of 40s. at any one time, she will be capitally convicted.</p>

<p>Court. It looks very ill in a Pawn-broker to receive such valuable Goods of such a Person as the Prisoner, without examining how she came by them. By her Appearance he could not imagine her to be the Owner of them. These People know if they bought Goods under such suspicious Circumstances at an under Rate, they would be liable to be prosecuted as Receivers of stolen Goods, and they think to evade the Law by lending a Trifle upon 'em to Persons who they are

<p>Drew Drury. I employ'd the Prisoner to polish Silver for me. I had lost a great deal of Silver for above a Year past. 'Tis my Method to weigh my Silver up every Saturday Night, and enter the Quantity in a Book, and I have constantly miss'd every Week, for a considerable Time, 40, 50, or 60 Shillings worth. The Prisoner used to come to my Shop in a Morning before I was up, to see for Work; I order'd my Boys to watch him, and next Morning they told me, they saw him go to a Basket, where I put a pretty deal of Silver, and tumble it over, and then put his Hand in his Pocket 2 or 3 times. I ask'd them, Why they did not stop him and call me? They said, they were afraid. Upon this I was resolved to watch him my self. And so on Saturday Morning, Nov. 4 says I to my Boys, I'll hide my self in the Closet (for I have a Closet with a Window that looks into the Shop) and don't you be mealy mouth'd now, because you know that I am so near you, but when he comes, play your Rogues Tricks, and run about as you do when I am a Bed, that he may suspect nothing, and have an opportunity of going to the Basket. I went to my Post, the Prisoner came in, and my Boys began to play their Tricks with him, and by and by one of them run out, and the other after him. The Prisoner upon this stept to the Basket, took something out, put it in his Pocket, and follow'd them immediately. As soon as they came in again, says he, my Master will hardly came down till 9 a-Clock, I'll e'en go, and come again, but the Boys persuaded him to go into the Kitchen, and sit down by the Fire. I left the Closet, went up Stairs, and came down again as if I was but just come out of my Chamber. The Prisoner ask'd me, if I had any work for him? I told him, No. I let him go out a little way, and then call'd him back. Robin, says I, 'tis Saturday, and as I have no more work for you this Week, I may as well settle Accounts, and pay you for what you have done. I sent one of my Boys for a Constable, under pretence of getting change for a Guinea. When the Constable came, I charg'd the Prisoner. He deny'd the Fact, and said, I might search him and welcome. He took his Handkerchief out of his Pocket, and held it in his Hand. I could find nothing. Sure, says I, my Eyes did not deceive me. When presently my Boys told me, they saw the Silver in his Hand. Upon which the Prisoner took it out of his Handkerchief himself, and gave it to me, and said, This is the Bit. He begg'd that I would not prosecute him, and promis'd that he would never do so any more. [ This Deposition was by the two Boys.]</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173212060008"/>Prisoner. Did you see me take it?</p>
<p>Mr. Drury. I saw you take something out of the Basket.</p>
<p>Pris. And had you any reason to suspect me before?</p>
<p>Court. He has sworn that he had.</p>
<p>P. This was a Plot laid against me.</p>
<p>C. Yes, and a good one too.</p>
<p>P. Another Man having sent for me to work for him, I was speaking of it in my Master's Shop, and thereupon, I believe he laid this Trap for me, for he's a Man of that good Principle, that he would let no Body live but himself. He has trusted me with a great many Ounces of Silver.</p>
<p>C. Without Weight or Tale?</p>
<p>Mr. Drury. No.</p>
<p>C. Then you were accountable for it.</p>
<p>P. I don't know how it came into my Hankercher; 'tis a Plot; 'tis common to lose 40 or 50 s. a Week, and sometimes my Master has had more Silver than he should have.</p>
<p>Mr. Drury. I might sometimes make a Mistake, but it could not always be so. The Jury found him

I beat my Round at 12 a-Clock, and found all safe at the Prosecutor's House, and then I return'd to my Stand, and as I was talking there with my Comrade, a Fellow came up, and ask'd me to let him have a bit of Candle for a Half-penny? What to do? says I. To light me home, says he. So I let him have a bit; but knowing him to be a loose Chap, and where he liv'd, I watch'd him, and saw he went the contrary way. Thinks I, here's some Roguery in hand, so I and my brother Watchman follow'd him at a Distance. He turn'd down Castle-Yard. I left my brother Watchman at the End of the Yard to secure the Passage, and went down softly after the Man. I saw the Casement of the Prosecutor's Kitchen-window unhung, and presently the Prisoner, and the other Man, came out of the Street-door with the Candle in his Hand. You Rogue you, says I, did I lend you the Candle to do this? With that he flung the Candle in my Face, and run to the Gate. The Prisoner had this Stew-pan, and this Plate ty'd before him thus, in this Wrapper. I seiz'd him, we struggled, and the other Rogue return'd, and they both beat me, and then they both run away. I follow'd 'em, and saw the Prisoner turn down Woolpack-Alley, and the other down Angel-Alley, which was a Thorow-fare, and so is Woolpack-Alley in the Day time; but I had lock'd up the Door at Night, so that I knew the Prisoner could not get through. I call'd for help, and we follow'd him. There's a Parcel of old ruined Houses and Rubbish in that Alley, where I suppose he hid himself, for we could not find him. But we set a Watch against the End of the Alley, and in about half an Hour he came out, and turn'd towards Aldgate. Says my Master, There's a Man come out, is that he ? Yes, says I, this is the very Man that came out of the House with the Stew-pan before him.</p>

I was not near the Place when the House was broke open, but I had been at t'other End of the Town, and in my Way home thought to go thro' Woollpack-Alley, but finding the Door lock'd, I turn'd back, when a Watchman cry'd, Who goes there? I said, a Friend: Says the Watchman, Here he is, Who do you mean? says I. Is this the Man? Says another. I believe so, says Owen, and with that they carried me to the Watch-house.

She told me, she was acquainted with great Men, and could do me Service, and expected I should do her some in return. She said, she ow'd a pretty deal of Money, and knew a way to pay off all her Creditors, which was to leave Goods with me, and pretending she was gone to Scotland, would send them word, that she had left such and such Goods, which if they would take in full for what she ow'd them, and give me a Discharge they might, otherwise they might get their Money how they could. Thus she sent me to Mr. Hayward, a Wine Merchant, with 15l. tho' she ow'd him 70l. He thinking that she was gone to Scotland, and left me to act for her, took the 15 l. in full for
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173212060011"/> the 70. So she compounded with Mrs. Avery, to whom she ow'd 20 l. for less than half the Money. It was upon this Account that she desir'd me to lye in her Room, and if any of her Creditors enquired for her, to tell them, she was gone to Scotland, tho' it was all a Trick. Before she left me, I told her, I had no Money for Necessaries. She said, I need not want, there were Goods enough in her Closet that I might dispose of upon Occasion, for I had her Keys.</p>

My Sister said she heard a cracking Noise in the Night, and cry'd out, Who's there? My Wife had left her Lace in a Band-box, and her Velvet Hood and Manteel in the Parlour over-night, and they were carried off. The Shutter of the Kitchen-Window had been taken down and set aside, and the Casement left open. A Gentleman hearing of the Robbery, asked me what I had lost? I told him; he bid me be easy, for the Thief was taken, and all the Goods upon him. By his Directions I went to Justice Newton, and told him the Particulars. The Prisoner had been examined before I came, and was gone to a Publick-House just by. The Justice had given Orders for the Goods to be advertised. As soon as I saw the Things I knew them, and own'd them to be mine. I went to the Prisoner at the Ale-house, and found my Hat upon his Head. I took it off, and said, Friend, how came you by this? He said he had it among the rest of the Things that were given him by a Man that he met in the Hay-Market against the Opera-House.</p>

<p>Henry Green. On the 2d of Nov. I got up in the Morning to see my Brother out of Town. I took half a Guinea out of my Drawers, and left fourscore and ten Guineas in a green Silk Purse.</p>
<p>W. M. Prisoner. How came you to swear to but 68 Guineas you old Rogue you?</p>
<p>Court. Did you swear to but 68 Guineas?</p>
<p>Green. No, I swore to 88 Guineas and 4 half Guineas. The Prisoners were my Lodgers. They had the next Room to that where the Money was taken: There was a Hole in the Partition, so that they could see all over my Room. He pretended he was married to her at the White Horse in Fleet-lane, but I believe it was only a Pretence.</p>

My Husband had a poor Brother come to see him out of Northamptonshire, and he was to go out of Town that Morning, and I being dubitons that my Husband should give some of his Money to this poor Brother, I hided the Purse with 90 Guineas in it under my Child's Bed, in the Room next to the Prisoner's. I heard them walking about the Room at the same time, and I suppose they might see what I was doing through the Slit in the Wainscot: Then I lock'd the Door and went down Stairs, and my Husband and his Brother went out together. By and by, one came in for a Hat and Waistcoat that were left in that Room, and I sent my Boy up for it; and when he came down again, he told me that they came into the Room while he was there, and took something from under the Bed.</p>
<p>W. M. Prisoner. Was no Body else in the House then ?</p>
<p>Ann Green. No.</p>
<p>W. M. P. There was a Soldier. I hope the Court will enquire into your Character.</p>
<p>Ann Green. You have got Moll Harvey of your side, so you need not care.</p>
<p>Thomas Green. (Aged 16) when I went up for the Hat and Waistcoat, she came into my Room with a Bundle, and says, Tom, take care of this; and then he comes in and says, Give me the Bundle; so he took it away, and came in again, and went to my Bed, and said, this is a pretty Feather-bed. Then he turned it up, and felt under it, and took something out; but I did not think it was Money, for I knew nothing of any Money being there. Then they both went away directly, and bid me tell my Mother they would certainly come at Night. There was no Body else in the Room but these two end my self.</p>

When he came there, he got out of the Coach, and went into Moll Harvey's, and said he had lost 68 Guineas and a Watch there, and he would have 'em again. Moll desired him to be easy and quiet, and said he should have his Watch: He swore he would have his Money too, or he would go to Justice De Veil and get a Warrant; and then he ordered me to drive to Justice De Veil's. But Moll Harvey going out, and a Woman saying she was gone to Justice De Veil's, and would be there before him, he then ordered me to drive to Justice Lambert's. It was the same Day that he was taken up. Justice Lambert called for me in, asked where I took him up ; I told him, and then I was ordered to withdraw.</p>

<p>- Banford, Constable. A Man came from the Cow and Calf Ale-house by Islington Turnpike, to me at next Door, and said, there was a Woman who had robb'd her Lodgings. I went and found Mr. Green and the Prisoner Murphey there. He charged her with robbing him. How can you say so? says she, I never wrong'd Man, Woman, nor Child; and if I have any Gold about me it is yours. We searched her, and found 7 Guineas, 5 s. and 6 d. and a Gold Ring in a Housewife in her Pocket: So she was sent to New-Prison. The Man of the Alehouse came to me again about 10 at Night, and said there was a Man at his House who enquired for Mrs. Macloughlane, and he suspected him to be concerned in the same Robbery. I went thither, I found the Prisoner W. M. but he said his Name was

He seemed to be in Liquor. He was dirty, his Shirt Sleeve was torn, and he said he had been robb'd of some Guineas. The Coachman who brought him there, said, he had been at Mall Harvey's.</p>
<p>- Davis. I am Watchman to the New River Company. I was at Mr. Chamberlain's House when Mr. Banford came in, and said there was a Man at the Cow and Calf, who was suspected to belong to the Woman that was taken up there that Day. I went in, and spoke to him in the Irish Brogue (for I had been a Soldier in Ireland). I ask'd him how he did, where he came from? He answered me in Irish, and said, he came from the North of Ireland, near Dundee. Sure I should know you, says I: What is your Name? My Name, says he, is Will. Maclonghlane. I asked him how long he had been in England? He said he had not been long come from of France. Parlezvous Francois, says I. Ouy Monsieur, says he. I found he could speak so much French as I.</p>
<p>Court. 'Tis no Matter whether he could or not: The Court don't want to hear how many Scraps of French and Irish you can repeat.</p>
<p>- Davis. So, says I to the Constable, He says his Name is Will. Maclonghlane, and, says the Constable, that's the Name in the Warrant. With that I kick'd up his Heels, and he fell against a Jack-Chain. He began to struggle with me; but You Rogue, says I, if you make any Resistance, I'll hang you in this Chain, and save

Give me the Gold, and you shall keep the Watch and the Silver if you'll let me go.</p>
<p>Mr. Chamberlain. The Constable came to ask me if I had any Assistance. I bid Davis step out. They went and I followed. They had hold of the Prisoner when I came in. The Constable said he had a Warrant for W. Macloughlane, and then, says the Prisoner, Damn me, if my Name is not John Howard. He desired to speak aside with Davis.

I came home about seven in the Evening, and saw a Man turn into the Court just before me; but seeing me go up after him, he turned back. I went in, and found the Window of my Warehouse (which is on a Ground Floor) open, I knock'd at the Door, look'd in at the Window, and saw a parcel of Goods piled up ready to be carried off. Looking farther, I saw the Prisoner in the Room, there is a Lamp faces the Window, I am sure it was he. As soon as he found I saw him, he said, Damn ye, if ye don't desist and go off, I'll shoot ye. He stept up to the Window, in order to get out, I laid hold of him there, and pulled him down; he gave a spring to get from me, but I held him fast; and after a small Struggle on the Ground, he surrender'd, and begged me to let him go. I cr'ed out Thieves; my Wife and Maid came to the Door, and the Neighbours came to my Assistance. One of them went for a Constable, and I did not let the Prisoner go till the Constable came; and yet when he was carried before Sir

After he was secured, I found that a Pane of Glass had been taken out of the Casement, and so it was unhasp'd. And he had broke 10 or 12 other Panes with struggling, when I pull'd him out of the Window.</p>
<p>Court. Was your Window shut after it was dark ?</p>
<p>Fry. My Wife and Maid will give an Account of that, for I went out at Exchange Time, and did not return till about 7. I had Shutters belonging to that Window, but my Wife having lately lain in, her Maid going away that Evening, and a new Maid coming, the Shutters were left unshut till I came; none of my Goods were carried off, but were only moved from the Shelves to the Window.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Had you no Servants that might mislay these Goods. Fry. I left the Key with my Wife. Prisoner. Did any Body but your selfsee when you laid hold on me first? Fry. No.</p>
<p>Mrs. Fry. My Spouse knocked and cried Thieves. I was frighted, and came down, and when I opened the Door, he had the Prisoner by the Collar; he begg'd my Husband to let him go, or to go with him to a Tavern, for he said he had taken nothing. I saw the Casement shut half an hour past 6, when I came down to let my new Maid in. The Key of the Warehouse was left with me, I left the Goods in their proper Place on the Shelves at half an Hour past 4 that same afternoon; I double lock'd the Door, and it was not open'd again till after the Prisoner was taken, and then I went in, and found several Parcels remov'd from the Shelves to the Window, ready to be carried away. The Window Board was made like a Table, to turn up and down for shewing Goods; there was 5 Sagathys of 30 Yards each, 4 Serges, 4 Duroys, of 24 Yards each, and 1 Kersey, besides another Kersey that lay upon the Ground, which I suppose the Prisoner dropt upon his being surpriz'd.</p>

My Mistress and I went down, and saw my Master have the Prisoner by the Collar. The Casement was open, and a Pane of Glass taken out of it near the Hasp; so that a Man might put his Hand through and unhasp it, and each Side of the Window was likewise broke. There were Lights brought into the

<p>Prisoner. What Apparel had I?</p>
<p>Lane. A darkish Coat with a Boot Sleeve, but no great Coat; and you had, I think, a darkish Wig.</p>

<p>Knight. Yes, I took a Candle, and look'd in at the Window (which was open) and saw several Pieces of Sagathy, Serge Duroy and Kersey lying on the Window Board, and the Print of a Man's Foot that was wet. There were 7 or 8 Panes of Glass broke, and one Pane was taken out of the Casement. As Mr. Fry held the Prisoner, the Prisoner said to him, Sir, whatever Damage I have done I will pay you for. And Mr. Fry said, I don't know what Damage is done yet, because I don't know what is missing, but the Windows are broke. The Prisoner offered to pay for them, and desired Mr. Fry to go with him to a Tavern, or into his own Warehouse, but Mr. Fry refused till the Constable came, my Master being gone to fetch him.</p>

Then more Mob beside me came up, and they sent for a Constable. The Man had hold of the Prisoner's Collar; he held him thus, as I hold this Gentleman. Give me leave, Sir, I won't hurt you.</p>
<p>Mr. Fry. I neither said these Words, nor any thing of that Nature, for I took the Prisoner in my Warehouse. He offered to give me half a Guinea for breaking my Windows, and said, if I'd go to a Tavern, or take Coach with him to the other End of the Town, he would make me any Satisfaction. He fell on his Knees, and said he hoped he had not damnified me. I told him I did not know yet what Damage was done besides breaking my Windows.</p>

<p>Gale. Freeman met me, and said, Mrs. Gale, I have a Judge's Warrant. Where is your Tip-staff, says I, to serve it? I have none, says he. Where's your Constable then? says I. Why, says he, I am one; and with that he pull'd out a Constable's Staff. You a Constable! says I, how came they to make a Foot Soldier a Constable? so went in to drink at Mrs. Jones's, and had a Quartern of Liquor; and he was so far from losing 15 s. that he had not enough to pay the Reckoning; for when Mrs. Jones asked him for the Money, he said he could not pay till his Wife came, and she afterwards paid for it. He took me into a Tipstaff's House, and he and his Wife-tore my Gown off my Back, and tumbled me in the Dirt ; and he did not charge me with the Robbery till 5 Days after I was committed.</p>
<p>Then the Copy of the Warrant for her Commitment was read. It was for an Assault, without any mention of a Felony, and dated November 6.</p>
<p>Freeman. I was robb'd on the second of November, and changed her on the third.</p>
<p>Court. It's a little strange, that you who was robb'd on the second, and got a Warrant on the sixth, should say nothing then of this Robbery, but only charge her with an Assault.</p>

<p>- Thorp. Freeman and his Wife came to my House (the Ship Alehouse in the Old Bailey) and desired me to go with them to look for Gale. We went to Wind-mill-hill, and from thence to Gale's Sister's in Shoe Lane, where we drank to the Tune of half a Crown, and then we and two others went
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173212060022"/> to the Hay-market, and mist of her there to. But coming back by the End of Sheer-Lane, his Wife called to him, and said, Freeman, here the Bitch is. He came up, and damn you, you Bitch, says he, I have catch'd you now. He had but 15 d. when he went out, and he spent 4 d. at the White-Lion in the Old-Bailey; and when we came to Gale's Sister's, his Wife paid 2s. of the Reckoning, because he had not enough to pay the Whole. And as he was going home, I ask'd his Wife if he had lost 15 s. Damn him, a Son of a Bitch, says she, who would trust him with 15 s. to get drunk with?</p>
<p>Mrs. Wattle. I keep a Coffee-house in Ship-yard by Temple Bar. I was above Stairs when Gale came running up, and shut me in, and cry'd, for God-sake hide me. I was frighted. The Constable, and Freeman and his Wife followed. I ask'd 'em what was the Matter, and if she had robb'd 'em? and Mrs. Freeman said no.</p>
<p>Several other Witnesses swore that Freeman kept a vile House in White-Fryars ; that he said he knew nothing of the Robbery till next Day; and that he offered to make it up for 10 Guineas.</p>
<p>Freeman swore it was all false, and that they offered him 10 Guineas to make it up. The Jury found the Prisoners
