I was waked by Somebody's twitching my Hat away, for I had put the Loop of it about my Finger. I started up upon my Breech, and, God! says I, where's my Shoes and Buckles? Says a Man, who was not far from me, There goes he that has got 'em, and pointed to the Prisoner, who was running off. I saw my Hat in his Hand, and followed him barefoot. He dropp'd my Hat, and jump'd over a Bank into a Garden, and I after, and took him. Now are not you a Rascal, says I, to rob a Man of his Clothes? You think to get the Devil and all of a Man, if he is but a little tight and clean. He called after the other Man, who followed at a Distance, and said, Jack! where' the Man's Shoes? but he sheer'd off. Then, says the Prisoner, if you'll go with me to Rag-Fair, plausible you may find him a selling them. So I collar'd him, and took him with me, and he went from one Place to another under that Pretence, but only wanted an Opportunity to get off; and so I got Help and secured him.</p>

<p>Mr. Dyer. Yes; that very Morning I took 10 s. out of one of the Drawers, and lock'd it, and saw all the rest were fast, but at my Return I found them all broke open. In one Drawer there was between 70 and 80 l. taken out, 500 Guineas from another, and the third was a little Drawer, in which my Wife had laid up several remarkable Pieces for my Children, Crowns, Half-crowns, Silver Groat, Three-pences, Two-Pences and Pennies, and these were all taken away. The Prisoner was taken in about five Hours after, with all the Money upon him, except 15 l. 4 s. which he had laid out in buying a great Coat, Whip, Boots, Sputs, a Trunk to put the Money on, and several other odd Things. I went in Pursu't of him towards Harwich, but he was taken in Kent by others who followed him in Dover Road.

Two Hours after the Robbery Mr. Brown and Mr. Sheppard sent for me, and told me the Prisoner had robbed his Master of 5 or 600 l. and desired me to go in Pursuit of him. It happen'd that I took Post horse at the same Inn as the Prisoner did; and at the second Stage, which was Dartford in Kent, I heard that such a Person as the Prisoner was but just gone out of the Inn, and could hardly he got 40 Yards off. I follow'd, and in about two Miles he was stopp'd by another Person who had got the Start of me, and brought him back, and we return'd to the Inn at Dartford. John, says I, how do ye do? - How do you do? says he again. God, says I, John, I am glad to see you; where is the Money? 'Tis in that Trank, says he I ask'd him how much there was? He said he had not told it yet, but had intended to tell it as soon as he came to Rochester. Upon searching I found there was 546 l. 3 s. 6 d. in the Trunk, besides other Money that he had about him. Then he gave me a Seal with which I scal'd up the Trunk He confess'd very readily, and was willing to come home with me, but we sat up there all Night. I ask'd him how he could serve his Master so, and what he had propos'd to do with the Money? He said, his Master was a good Master, and that he intended to make his Master Returns in Goods for the Money, designing to go directly to France, and so to Legborn, and from thence to send over Bermudas Hats to his Master. It seems there was some Money in his Clothes that were in the Trunk, which I did not see. He was afterwards sent to Maidstone Goal, from whence he was removed hither by a Habe Corpus.</p>

Some Irishmen, of whom the Prisoner was one, coming behind them, and hearing what Sudlow said, they ask'd if he had found Six-pence? He said yes. Why then, says one of them, 'tis mine. How do you know, says Sudlow, has it any Mark? Damn you, says the other, 'tis mine, and I'll have it. Well then, says Sudlow, you shall have it, if you'll give me a Pint of Beer. No, damn you, says the Irishman, I'll have it without, or I'll have as much out of your Bones. Sudlow, at last, gave him the Six-pence, and as soon as he had got it he knock'd Sudlow down with a Stick, though there was no Provocation given; and then the rest of the Irishmen fell upon him too: Some of them had Sticks, but I can't say the Prisoner had any; so they all fell to fighting: Sudlow was very much abus'd, and cut in the Head. He went into the House, and got his Head dress'd, and then coming out again, they fell upon him afresh. The Deceased was then standing at the Tavern Door in his Waistcoat. He was a

Upon which the Prisoner step'd up to him, and said, Damn you, you Rascal, do you Chatter? At this the Deceas'd began to strip; but, before he could get his Clothes off, and while his Arms were pinion'd behind him, being part out and part in the Sleeves, the Prisoner fell upon him, and knock'd him down against the Bench with his Fist, by which Blow the Deceas'd's Lip was cut thro', and then, holding the Deceas'd up against the Bench with his Knee, beat him in a violent Manner, and afterwards kick'd him on the Belly, so that his Belly was broke.</p>

They swore they would not stand for Marks; but Mark, or no Mark they would have it; and one of them held up a Stick, and offer'd to strike the Porter, and he, rather than be beat, gave the Six-pence to one of them, who, notwithstanding this, as soon as he had got it, knock'd the Porter down, and beat him unmercifully. The Deceas'd being just come to the Tavern Door, bid them not murder the poor Man, and told them, it was very barbarous to abuse him in that Manner; upon which the Prisoner

The Prisoner and some other Irishmen over-hearing what was said, one of them claim'd the Six-pence, and after he had got it, he fell upon the Man that gave it him, and so they all went to fighting. The Deceas'd said to some of them, I hope you won't murder the Man! And the Prisoner answer'd, Damn you, do you Chatter? I'll settle you presently : Upon which the Deceas'd began to pull off his Waistcoat, and when it was half off, the Prisoner fell upon him, threw him upon the Nag's-Head Bench, cut his Lip by dashing his Hand in his Face, and punch'd and kick'd him on the Breast and Belly.</p>
<p>Court. Are you sure the Deceas'd did not strike the Prisoner?</p>

The Deceas'd seeing this, went over to them, and said, Gentlemen, don't murder the Man; upon which the Prisoner went up to him, and struck him down on a Bench betwixt two Posts.</p>
<p>Court. In what Posture was the Deceas'd when the Prisoner struck him?</p>
<p>Brooks. Posture? He was in no Posture at all, he stood as I do now, with his Hands behind him, pulling off his Waistcoat - He was in a red Waistcoat, and the Prisoner in a green Waistcoat.</p>

<p>Brooks. He did not, but I believe he would have done it, with a proviso the Prisoner would have given him Liberty; but the Prisoner fell upon him before he could get his Arms clear from his Waistcoat.</p>

As soon as she was gone he miss'd the Watch, and upon Enquiry found it at another Pawnbroker's, where it was pledged by the Prisoner and her Husband.

It won't, says Jack the Hatter. You lye but it will, says t'other Jack. Let's go back, and see then, says I; and so I went, and lifted it up, and took out these three pair of Stock-clasps and a half, and they both stood by to tell me if any Body was a coming.

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173309120018"/> Goods and Money lock'd up in a Deal-box in my Chamber, I return'd in about half an Hour, when the Prisoner was gone; my Box was broke open, and 4 gold Rings, 4 Handkerchiefs, 4 Suits of Head-Clothes, 4 pair of Russles, a pair of Stays, and 34 Guineas were taken away. She was taken about 4 a Clock next Morning at the World's-End, at Newington-Butts. My Rings were found upon her, and my Money in her Pocket, which she deliver'd, and confess'd were mine.</p>
<p>- Philips. I was in the Square with the Nurse and the young Lady. When we return'd, and Mrs. Cope found she had been robb'd, I went among the Hackney-Coachmen, and enquir'd if they knew who had carry'd such a Fare. By eleven at Night, I found the Coachman, who told me, that he took up such a Person in Brook-street, and carry'd her to the Vine Tavern in Holbourn, where she treated him. Thence he drove her to London-Bridge, where she bought two gold Rings, and after that to the World's-End. I went to the World's-End after her, and saw her and a Man in their Shifts at the Window, but as soon as they perceiv'd me, they shut the Sash down, and the Man and Woman of the House came in their Places, and ask'd What I wanted? I told them my Business, and they said there was no Body in the House but themselves. But when I got in, I took the Prisoner and the Man in the Yard, as they were getting over the Pails. How do you do, Nanny? says I. Fellow, says she, I know you not. And at the same Time I perceived she was fumbling with her Fingers, to get the Rings off. I call'd a Watchman, and searching her, found 31 Guineas, a half Crown, and 3 s. 6 d. in her Pocket. I ask'd her whose Money that was? and she answer'd, What's that to you, Fellow? But next Morning she own'd, that the Money, the Rings, a Necklace, and other Things that were found upon her were all her Mistress's.</p>
