<p>Compton Morris. The Prisoner came to my Shop for a Quarter of a Yard of printed Linen, for Robings, which she bought, and paid me 6 d. for. I had another Customer in the Shop, and a pretty many Goods lay tumbled on the Counter. I observ'd the Prisoner to be very busy about those Goods, and as she was going out, I suspected she had taken more than she should, and so I call'd her to come back, and said, Hussy, you have stolen something; but she ran away, and I jump'd over the Counter, and follow'd her. I came up with her at the Sun Tavern Door, and took her by the Collar, upon which she threw this Linen from under her Coats, and it fell upon the Threshold. We have been so pester'd with these Vermin in our Shops, that I vow and protest, there's no living for them, I have lost above ten Pounds by them since last Month. The Prisoner had been in my Shop before this time.

My House was robbed in the Night between the 22d and 23d of June, but none of the outward Part of my House being broken, I imagin'd that the Person who robb'd me had got in, in the Evening, and lay conceal'd till I and my Family were a bed, and then committed the Fact, and went out at the Door, for the Door was found a jar in the Morning. I had some Suspicion of the Prisoner, because she was seen in the Neighbourhood the Day before, and was well acquainted with my House. Upon which I went to her Lodging, and heard that she did not lie there that Night as I was robb'd. On the 28th of September I went after her to Shrewsbury, and -</p>

<p>Crow. Because I expected her up again in a Month, and so thought to have saved that Trouble and Charge; but hearing she had taken a House at Oswistry in Shropshire, in order to settle there, I went, as I was saying, to Shrewsbury, where I got a Warrant to search her House. When I came thither, I found her at Home, and as soon as she saw me, she open'd a Chest, and took out a Pair of Stays that I had lost, and gave 'em to me. Jenny, says I, Where's your Mistress's Cloak and Hat? She said she'd fetch them; and so she did. And then she took the Tea-Spoons and Tongs out of the Chest, but told me, they were none of mine. I believe they were the same that I lost; but I can't swear to them, because they were not mark'd. I charg'd her with stealing these, and other Goods from me; but she said, those Goods and 20 l. were given her, by the Person who did the Robbery, that she might not discover it, and that she had nothing that belong'd to me, but what she had return'd to me; but next Day (Sept. 29.) when she was carry'd before the Justice, she said, she had bought the Goods; and her Father and Brother coming to intercede for her, I shew'd them a List of what I had lost, and ask'd them, if they knew any thing of those Goods? They said, Yes; and (while her Father staid) her Brother went and fetch'd my Coat, Waistcoat and Breeches, and she said, she bought them too.</p>

She went away before me, and I staying to count my Money miss'd my Watch. I describ'd her to the People of the House, and they said they knew her, but could not tell where she liv'd. They sent for me next Day, and I found the Prisoner and her Husband there, and they abused me barbarously.</p>

<p>Davis. It's true, I was with Clarety-Face Hannah, and another Woman, but that was after I lost my Watch - I had nothing to do with them; I only went to them to enquire after the Prisoner.</p>
<p>Prisoner. They were his old Companions, for when he pick'd me up, he ask'd me, if I knew Clarety-Face Hannah in Castle-Court, and he told me, he used to go to her. He and I had two hot Pots, and two Quarterns of Brandy together; and he offer'd me first Six-pence and then a Shilling, and then he gave me Three-pence more, and, says I, what must I do for this Money? Why, says he, 'tis to let me - . The Jury found her

I have laid no more to his Charge in the Indictment, than what I found again at his Lodging in Honey-Lane Market, and at other Places, and what I have here to produce. When these Goods were restored to me, I compared several of the Quantities with the Pieces I had from whence they were cut, and they tallied. This Piece of White Mantua Silk in particular, has his own Mark of 36 half Yards on it, and-this, with the Piece I have at home, from whence it was parted, makes exactly that Measure; here are 49 Quantities cut off, which make 169 Yards in all, which we have put up in 7 Parcels, seal'd and mark'd; 5 of these Parcels I swear to, but the other 2, my Partner knows better than I.</p>
<p>Richard Manning. I keep the Sign of the Carpenter and Weavers Arms, in Honey-Lane Market, the Weavers use my House to sell their Goods to other Weavers and Macklers, and I have a great many Warehouses on purpose to lay their Goods in; a Porter having at several Times brought several Parcels for the Prisoner - , to dispose of, I at last open'd some of them, and found them not to be whole Pieces nor Remnants, but Quantities cut off, which gave me some Suspicion. I shew'd them to several Weavers, who believ'd, with me, that they were stolen; upon which, I order'd my Boy (next time the Porter came) to dog him. The Boy did, and told me, that he follow'd the Porter to Mr. Biard's, at the Queen's-Arms, on Ludgate-Hill; I went to Mr. Biard's, and and told him, that his Porter had brought 9 Pieces of Silk to my House that Day for - . Mr. Biard came to my House, but did not own any of the Goods; however, he took one Piece of Cloth-colour'd Mantua, and went with me to several Mercers Shops, and at last matched it at Mr. Adams's. The Prisoner Fowl was not then within, but he came while we staid. He was charged with the Fact, and confess'd that he sent those and a great many other Goods by the Porter to my House for Mr. - . I met with - , and said to him, How came you to take such cut Goods from a Servant? You could not think he came honestly by them; I believe I have had as many left for you as came to 1000 l. It's no such Thing, says he, for I never paid Fowl above 100 l. for what I have had of him.</p>
<p>Court. What Business does - follow?</p>
<p>Manning. He's a Mackler - one that sells Goods for the Weavers; and sometimes he makes Goods himself.</p>
<p>Court. Is it not usual for Macklers to sell for Mercers as well as Weavers?</p>
<p>Manning. No.</p>
<p>Court. He own'd, you say, that he had the Goods from Fowl; did he say any thing how Fowl came by them?</p>
<p>Manning. He told me that Fowl said he had them at a Sale.</p>

<p>William Hill, Watchman. Between 3 and 4 on Sunday Morning, as I was beating the Hour in Booth-street, (facing Princes-street) in Spittle-Fields, I heard a sort of a clinking, and looking about (for it was Moon-light) I saw a Man stooping down, and seemingly very busy about something, but as I made towards him he brushed off; this must be some Rogue, thought I to myself, and if I should run after him, 'tis ten to one if I catch him. So I made as if I had not seen him, and knock'd the Hour as if I was going my Rounds, and then hid my Lanthorn under my Coat, and stood out of Sight. Presently my Gentleman came back, and out I pops upon him, and now says I, Tho' you're the Devil I'll see who you be. Why so you may, Mr. Hill, says he, (for be gave me the Title of a Gentleman) What, is it you, Tom? says I, if I did not know you I wou'd carry you before the Officer of the Night. But what made you shun me ? Why, says he, I had a mind to play the Pool with that Woman; for there was a Man and a Woman standing together in the Street hard by. Now I always take it for a Rule, that wherever there's a Woman, there's Mischief.</p>

Michael was then next the Chariot, and I was behind him. I put forward to get up with the Chariot, and endeavoured to draw my Pistol, but could not get it out of the Holster. I cross'd the Postilion Horses, and came to the Off-side of the Chariot, and took out my Pistol, with the Holster. The other Highway-man rode after me, Damn ye, says he, stop, or I'll shoot.

Now as Bye and I were presenting our Pistols at each other, and crying, Shoot, and Fire, my Master, thinking I had pick'd a Quarrel with somebody, step'd out of the Chariot to see what was the Matter. Bye withdrew a little, but advancing again, my Master asked him what he wanted. Why, says Bye, I want your Watch and Money; deliver this Minute, or I'll fire. My Master did not seem to mind him, but call'd to my Fellow-Servant, and said, Michael, Why don't ye take your Horse and come to me? But Michael answer'd, They will not let me. Says Bye, I have 12 Slugs in this Piece, and if you don't deliver this Minute I'll fire thro' your Body. Still my Master did not seem to regard him, but call'd to Michael again; Michael answer'd as before, and so did Bye. But when my Master call'd to Michael the third time, Bye was quite out of Patience, and swore my Master's Body should suffer for all that Moment, if he did not deliver directly; upon which my Master called to me, and said, come hither Parry; I went, and he gave me his Silver Watch and 2 Guineas, to deliver to Bye, who would not take them of me, but gave my Master a deal of illprobus Language, and swore at him, Damn you, Sir, you shall bring them your self, or I'll shoot you through the Body immediately; and so then my Master took them from me again, and deliver'd them to him.</p>

West pulled out the Pin of the lower Shutters as far as he could, I set one Foot upon that, and the other upon Curd's Shoulder, and taking hold by the Hook of the Window above with one Hand, I broke a Pane of Glass with the other, and so open'd the Casement and got in. I ty'd my Garter to the Handle of the Trunk and let it down to them; It was a round hairy Portmanteau-Trunk; they both took it and went away with it; while they were gone I got a Sheet and pack'd up in it what I could find. In less than an Hour they came again and whistled, I put the Bundle out of the Window for them, Curd was afraid to stand under it because his Head was broke, and West going to receive it, it knock'd him down, but he got up again, put it on his Head, and then went away with it. I ty'd a Curtain to the Back of a Walnut-tree Chair, and so let my self down, and left the Curtain flying, and follow'd them; but in a quarter of an Hour I bethought myself that I had left my Hat behind, and fearing that might make a Discovery, we planted the Goods and went back again; I got up by the Curtain, found my Hat, and came down the same Way. We preserv'd the Goods till Wednesday, and then being at a Gin-shop together, a Woman went by the Door crying, Old Cloaths to sell ; we call'd her in, and ask'd if she would buy a Sheet? she said Yes, or any thing else that we had, let it be what it would: Then we shew'd her the rest of the Goods, and she bought 'em all of us for 50 s. We divided 15 s. a-piece, and paid a Crown that we had run up at a Gift-shop.</p>
<p>Prisoner. West, can you tell the same Story over-again?</p>
<p>Smithson. Yes, I can.</p>
<p>Court. If you would be understood that the Account he has given is nothing but his own Invention, and in order to detect him, desire he may be put to repeat it, the Court will not deny you; but consider the Nature of such a Request; if he gives a different Account it may do you Service, but if he repeats all the Circumstances without Variation, it will strengthen his Evidence.</p>
<p>Prisoners. My Lord, we desire he may repeat it.</p>
<p>Then Smithson gave the same Account as he had done before.</p>

I stood with my Back to the House, and he with his Back to the Fields, and being taller than I was, I could the better observe his Face by the Lamp. I said, aloud, Take away your Pistol, and you shall have what I have got. No, he swore he would not, and kept punching me with his Pistol. I took out my Watch and gave it him; he took it with his Left Hand, and then had his Accomplices (who I believe to be the Prisoner and this other Person) to search my Pockets, which they did, and took out 4 Shillings, and 2 Sixpences. Says I, If you'll leave the Watch for me at any House, I'll bring the Money for it. They would not agree to that, but Butler bid me make off, or he would send a Ball after me. As I was going, I found my Breeches were cut all down the Side; I gather'd them up as well as I could, and went to a Watchman in Holbourn; I told him my Case, and he came back with me to the middle of Duke-street to look for 'em, but we could not find 'em.</p>
