<p>Ben. Johnson. About 7 at Night, I met this Gentlewoman, in Broad St. Giles's, she ask'd me, to give her a Dram I refus'd, but she follow'd me, and begg'd for a Pint of Beer. At last I went with her to the

We went into a private Room by ourselves, and I hid my Watch then; but before we had empty'd the last Pint, I miss'd it. Upon which I call'd the Landlord, and sent for the Constable, who carry'd her to the W house, and from thence to the Round-House, where my Watch was found upon her.</p>

When we could not find the Watch in her Cloaths, I said, I believed she had hid it in a particular Place, which is easy to guess at without naming, for I knew such things had been done by other Gentlewomen on the like Occasion. So we propos'd to search her, but she refusing to let us, Mr. Hazledine, the Governor of the Round house, desir'd his Wife to do it ; but she bid him do it himself and he would, for she would not be concern'd in any such sobb.

When we had search'd her in the common Way, and could not find it, King told us, he believ'd he knew where it was, and that a superficial Examination would signify nothing, for if we expected to get it, we must search to the Bottom. So I held her Hands, and turn'd my Backside to her Feet while they made the Search, for I did not much care to see how they proceeded. I heard one of them say, that he felt it, and soon after, that he had got it out, and then I venture to look back, and saw the Watch in his hand. He wip'd it, and gave it to me, and it is.</p>

Will., says he, you may go and drink with me, Forever. And so at last, he overpersuaded me and when we came to the Alehouse, he wanted to have to do with me, but having no Money he gave me the Watch to pawn for a Guinea, and then, because I refus'd to let him have his Will, he charged me with picking his Pocket, and sent for a Constable, who carried me to the Round-house, where they stumbled and strumbled, and trowd me about till the Watch was found.</p>

My Master telling me I might do as I would, I concluded to go, but having received some Money at Stepney, I thought it would not be safe for me to venture over the Fields with it alone, and so I left 26 l. with him, and came away about six a Clock; but recollecting that I still had 7 l. 10 s. in Moidores and Silver, I put it into my Side-pocket for the better Security.

Why then, says he, you may keep it; go forward, and say you are well us'd. So we parted, and I return'd another Way to my Master at the Globe, and told him and Mr. Collingwood, who was with him, what had happen'd. I staid with them there about three or four Hours, and then we all three came away together. We took Links with us, and coming to the same Place where I had been robb'd, we saw two Men running towards us; For God's sake, says one of them, have a Care, Gentlemen, we are frighted out of our Wits; we met a wild Bull, and thought the Devil was coming for us. As they look'd like loose Fellows, Mr. Collingwood ask'd them if there had not been a Robbery there that Night? They said, they had not heard of any. I thought I knew them again, and taking hold of one of them, whose Name is Macdonald, I told him he was the Man that robb'd me. The other was Baxter, and him my Master and Mr. Collingwood took Care of. We carry'd them to the Sun Tavern at Stepney, where we search'd them, and found a large Fowl upon one, and two Chickens upon t'other. We provided them with separate Lodgings for that Night, - the Watch-house and the Round-house. I saw Macdonald next Morning, and then he confess'd that he was the Man who took my Money, and said, as he us'd me well in giving me my Watch again, he hop'd I would let him be an Evidence.</p>

In the Field we met Baxter and Macdonald running as if they were frighted out of their Wits. They said they had met a mad Bull; we charg'd them with the Robbery, and carry'd them to the Sun at Stepney - Baxter confess'd.</p>

Thieves! and Help, for the Lord's sake! Mr. Matthews came to my Assistance, and took him. I said, Thank you kindly, Sir, you have saved my Life, and my Money too. I did not know then, that my Money was lost, for I had wrapt it in a Paper, and put it in my Bosom to another Paper that had Tea-dust in it, and while the Prisoner struggl'd with me, I took one of the Paper; out of my Bosom, and thought, in the Fright I was in, that it had been my Money; but when I was a little recover'd, I found my Mistake, for it was the Paper of Tea-dust.</p>
<p>Mr. Matthews. I keep a Coffee-house, in Goodman's-Fields. About twelve at Night, as I was shutting my Door, I heard a sad cry of Murder, and Thieves. I run down an Alley near at Hand, but found no Body there, and all was silent for two or three Minutes; but turning the Corner of that Alley, I heard the Shrieking again. The Sound led me to another Alley, where I found the Woman lying upon the Ground, with her Arms extended, and the Prisoner endeavouring to get her Hands open. They were not in any unseemly Posture, I secur'd the Man, and call'd the Watch. The Woman said, God bless you, Sir, you have sav'd my Life, and my Money too. I ask'd her where her Money was? She said, in her Hand. But presently finding her Mistake , O Lord! says she, this is my Paper of Tea-dust !</p>
<p>Prisoner. Did not I desire to be search'd when I was in the Watch-house?</p>
<p>Mr. Matthews. Yes; but I thought it would then be in vain, because in his Way thither he had opportunity enough to make away with it.</p>
<p>Prisoner. She had another with her before I came near.</p>
<p>Matthews. Man but the Prisoner</p>
<p>Prisoner. I heard her cry out in a bar barous Manner, and meeting a Man in the Alley, I ask'd, what was the Matter ? He said, No harm; and so he went away, and I went to her, and she gave me her Hand to help her up, for she was very drunk, and then Mr. Matthews came and took him.</p>
<p>Matthews. The Woman a in a great Surprize, but I did not perceive she was drunk.</p>
<p>The Jury found him guilty to the We of 10 d.</p>
<p>The Court (before the Verdict was Recorded ) inform'd them, that in a Robbery, the Value was not material, and therefore they had nothing to consider, but whether the Prisoner robb'd the Woman or not.</p>
<p>The Jury said, they believed he robb'd her of some Money; but were doubtful of how much.</p>
<p>The Court again, told them, they were not to regard the Sum, but if upon the Evidence given, it appear'd to them, that he robb'd her, they ought to find him Guilty, or otherwise to Acquit him.</p>
<p>Then the Jury

She said, something (she knew not what) was come from her, but it was no Child. I ask'd her, what she did with that which came from her? She said she did not know where it was. I told her it signify'd nothing to deny it, for I was sure she had had a Child, and therefore a Child I would find. Then she confess'd that it was a Man Child; but said it was born dead, and that her Father took it from her, but she could not tell what he had done with it. Her Father coming in I told him his Daughter had been Deliver'd - Deliver'd ! says he, Ay, so she has - of a Sir-Reverence. Those were his Words, begging your Worship's Pardon. I saw so much by his Behaviour towards the Prisoner, and some other Passages, that in short, I told him, I believ'd he was Father to the Child, as well as Grandfather; and that he had done my Business, and deliver'd her himself before I was sent for. So he went out, and I examin'd the Prisoner, and she declar'd to me, that her Father had lain with her, and that she never had to do with any other Man but him. On the 2d of November following, the Prisoner's Mother gave me a Note, I suppose it was sent from her Husband, who was then run away, and in this Note, it was said, that the Child was wrapt up in an old Curtain, and laid in among some Horse-litter in Tom Turd's-Hole (a Place where the Nightmen lay their Soil) and there it was found. I saw no Marks of Violence upon it; but I believe it bled to death for want of proper Help.</p>

<p>Court. What Goods did you miss?</p>
<p>Mr. Rayner. A silver pint Mug, a pair of silver Salvers, a pair of silver Snuffers and Stand, a silver Pepper-box and a Hat.</p>
<p>Eliz. Chejoy. I left the Shutters fast between six and seven at Night, and found 'em broke open between seven and eight in the Morning; the Sashes of that Window that was open stood double.</p>
<p>Court. How do you mean?</p>
<p>E. Chejoy. The under Sash was thrown half way up, and the upper one drawn as far down; the Plate was taken out of the Boufet.</p>

The Watch was calling past twelve when Baker and I met Anderson and Ogleby by Charing-cross ; they ask'd us whither we were going? we said we could not very well tell, and so, after a little Talk, we went all together to the Night-cellar by Privy-garden.</p>
<p>Court. Privy-garden !</p>
<p>Wild. I don't know whether they call it Privy-garden or Spring-garden, but its over-against the Meuse.</p>
<p>Court. What Discourse had you there?</p>
<p>Wild. Nothing but Here's to you; we drank but one Pot there, and then we came up and went into the Hay-market, and coming to the Corner of St. James's-street, as you
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173312050013"/> go towards the Tennis-court, says Ogleby, Here's two Stalls where the People leave their Goods all Night, let's mill 'em, that is, break 'em open; we soon agreed upon it, and Anderson wrench'd one of the Doors open with a Chissel, but we found nothing there that was worth stealing, and so we look'd out for a better Chance. We came at last into Church-street, where, pushing against a Shutter, he said it was loose, and bid us stay a little; we stopp'd, and he put a Chissel betwixt the two Shutters, and, with a hard Wrench, forc'd it open; it made such a Noise that we were afraid it would alarm the Family, or the Watch, who stood at the Corner of the Street, and therefore we retreated for two or three Minutes, and stood at a little Distance to see the Event; but finding all safe, we went again, and blew out the Lamp that was at the Door. Then Anderson stood upon my Shoulders, pull'd down the upper Sash, and reaching over, undid the inner Shutters. Getting down again, he endeavour'd to push up the under Sash, but not being able to do it, Ogleby try'd at it, rais'd it a little with his Hands, and clapping his Shoulders under, forc'd it up high enough for us to enter. Anderson stepp'd over the Way, and getting up to a Lamp, lighted a Candle, put it into his Dark-lanthorn, and went into the House by himself, while we stood without to watch; he brought out a silver Mug, one silver Salver, a silver Stand for Snuffers, a silver Pepper-box, and a Man's Hat; if he took any Thing else he sunk it, for that was all we saw. By this Time it was between two and three in the Morning; we went thence to Stocks-market, and then it was near four. None of us having any Money left, I gave my Hat to Ogleby, and putting the Prosecutor's Hat upon my Head, went into the Brandy-shop on the left Hand facing the Market, and desir'd the Man to let us have half a Pint of Gin and 6 d. upon it till the Morning, tho' indeed it was Morning then.</p>
<p>He refus'd to lend us 6 d. but said we might have the Gin, we agreed to it; the Gin was drawn, but while we were drinking, I thought he seem'd to be suspicious of us, for he look'd upon the Hat, and said it was a very good one, and then going to the Door call'd Lightfoot; we concluded Light-foot was a Watchman, so bidding the Man take Care of the Hat, we made haste away. Anderson pawn'd a Handkerchief for 6 d. and with that Money we went the same Morning and redeem'd the Hat. Thence we walk'd to

<p>Ogleby. Where did you see me first?</p>
<p>Wild. That was the first time when I met you at Charing-cross, but I have often drank with you since, at the Corner of St. Martin's-lane.</p>
<p>Ogleby. I'll prove that I never drank with you in my Life.</p>
<p>Wild. Do if you can.</p>
<p>Anderson. And where was it you saw me first?</p>
<p>Wild. I told you before, at the Corner of Cornhill, and that I saw you afterwards in Smithfield, and that this Fact was the first we committed together.</p>
<p>Ogleby. Did you ever see me from the Time you came to England to the Time we committed this Transgression ?</p>
<p>Wild. No, I told you just now, that this was the first time I saw you.</p>

When it was Dark we went out together, and pick'd Pockets till past twelve, and then meeting with Anderson and Ogleby, by Charing cross, as I said before, we went and broke open the House.</p>

<p>Court. If you had sold it to Spencer, it was his Property. But the Prisoner is charged with stealing Goods that were your Property.</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173312050015"/>Williams. Yes, my Lord, he is so, my Lord, and it was my Property, and my Goods, my Lord, and none of Mr. Spencer's, my Lord; it's true indeed, my Lord, and I'll tell my honourable Lordship how it was, my Lord, for when Bray, my Lord, had carry'd the Iron to Mr. Spencer, my Lord, Mr. Spencer would take but 18 hundred Weight, because he said, my Lord, that it was not fit for his Purpose, my Lord, and so I came and call'd a Sculler, my Lord, yes, my Lord, I call'd a Sculler, and Mr. Spencer told me, that when I had paid the King's Juty, my Lord, he would send a Lighter, and fetch the Iron, my Lord.</p>
<p>Court. But you said Spencer would have no more of it.</p>
<p>Williams. O Lord! my Lord, this was before he had the 18 hundred Weight, my Lord, and so when I came to the Water-side, it was 11 a Clock, my Lord, yes, my Lord, it was 11 a Clock, and meeting with Bray, unknown, my Lord, I say, my Lord, Bray, unknown, for I did not know him, my Lord, and I wanting a Waterman to Savorie's-Dock, my Lord, he ask'd me, if I wanted a Waterman to Savorie's-Dock, my Lord, and says Bray to me, my Lord, for Bray was in a small Boat, my Lord, says Bray, Mister Williams, says he, I know you, Mister Williams, says he, and I have fetch'd old Rags for you, says he; and says she, why can't you let me carry the Iron, says he; and so says I, to Mr. Spencer, Mr. Spencer, says I, the Captain makes a sad Noise at me, for letting the Iron lie so long in the Ship, and therefore, pray Mr. Spencer, says I, why don't you take it away?</p>
<p>Council. Was Spencer with you at the Water-side?</p>
<p>Williams. No, my Lord, Spencer was not with me, and please my honourable Lordship. But this was after I was at the Water-side, my Lord, and I went over to Spencer, my Lord, and Bray, my Lord, was with me; yes, my Lord, this was afterwards, and Bray was with me, my Lord, and says Bray, my Lord, Pray Mister Spencer, says he, can't I carry it? says he. And says Mr Spencer, Have you got a Lighter? says he. And Bray said, Yes. And then Mr. Spencer bid him be ready by the Ship's side by two a Clock in the Afternoon, my Lord, and I went back with Bray, my Lord, to Capt. Hammond's Ship, my Lord, and Bray went with me, my Lord, and so he went to fetch his Lighter, my Lord, and I stay'd in the Ship, in Capt. Hammond's Ship, my Lord, till four a Clock, my Lord, and then Bray came with the Lighter, my Lord, and I went to Mr. Spencer between three and four a Clock.</p>
<p>Court. You said you staid in the Ship till four?</p>
<p>Williams. God save your Lordship, my Lord! no my honourable Lordship, it was four a Clock when I came back, my Lord, for I went to Mr. Spencer, my Lord, and told him, my Lord, that I wonder'd Bray was not come for the Iron, my Lord, and Mr. Spencer bless'd himself, my Lord, to think, my Lord, that he could not have it sent that Night, my Lord, and so he sent another Lighter man with me, my Lord, but when we came to the Ship, my Lord, there was Bray, my Lord, with his Lighter, my Lord, by the Ship's side, my Lord, and so, my Lord, the Iron was put into Bray's Lighter, and he carry'd it to Mr. Spencer, my Lord, at Savorie's-Dock, my Lord, and I went with him, my Lord, and Mr. Spencer took 18 hundred Weight, my Lord.</p>
<p>Council. As I apprehend it, here was a Contract for the Iron, and a Delivery of it to Spencer's Man. Spencer refus'd part, and the rest that was sent back, was that which Bray went away with: Is that your meaning?</p>
<p>Williams. No, my Lord, I beg your Lordship's Pardon, I sold but 18 hundred to Spencer; but Bray took my Iron the Day before I went to Spencer.</p>
<p>Court. The Day before?</p>
<p>Williams. Ess, my Lord, for I found 5 hundred Weight at Mr. Wood's, at the Faulcon; ess, my Lord, it was the 5th of September at Night, and I found several. Tubs taken from the Iron, as Bray and I came
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173312050016"/> from Spencer's, and says I to Bray, Where's the Tubs, Mr. Bray? says I, my Lord, and Bray, my Lord, was to carry the Iron to a Gentleman in Thames-Street, and upon the 7th of September, I was to carry some to Mr. Harrison, my Lord, and Bray run away from me, my Lord, for he was gone from me, and I could not get a Constable to take him, my Lord. And as Spencer took no more than 18 hundred, upon the 6th of September, at 7 in the Morning, my Lord, by Mr. Spencer's Recommendation, he desired me to go to a Founder, one Mr. Fowler, my Lord.</p>
<p>Court. Let us understand you, if possible. Did you Deliver any of your own Iron to the Prisoner?</p>
<p>Williams. Ess, my Lord, ess, I deliver'd three Tons and a Quarter to Bray, to bring to Mr. Fowler, thro' Bridge, my Lord, thro' Bridge, and it was put into his Lighter, my Lord, and he said, he could never get thro ' Bridge this Tide, and I got two Men to aid him, to push him thro'; but we could not get thro' for-the Tide was so strong, that it push'd us back again, and then he made his Boat fast on the other Side of the Bridge.</p>
<p>Court. Then he did get thro'?</p>
<p>Williams. Ess, ess, my Lord, he got thro'; but that was at two a Clock.</p>
<p>Council. Did not he make some Excuse, and send you away?</p>
<p>Williams. O! yes, a great many Excuses, and a Man came to him, and he quitted the Boat, and I staid there most of the time with it when he was gone, and I told him I must go away, and I left the Boat with the Man at the White-Bear, and the Man at the Bear said, the Iron would be safe.</p>
<p>Council. Who did you leave in Possession of the Iron?</p>
<p>Williams. No Body, my Lord, I left no Body in Possession, my Lord, but the Man at the Bear, my Lord, said it would be as safe as so much Gold, my Lord, but Bray, my Lord, Bray, took it out of the Ship.</p>
<p>Council. Now we have got to the Ship again. But who took it out of the Boat at the Bridge?</p>
<p>Williams. I don't know that Bray took it out of the Boat, my Lord, but Bray took it out of the Ship, yes, it was Bray, Bray, my Lord, Bray took it out of the Ship; and I found 5 hundred and a half at Mr. Wood's, my Lord, and I gave Mr. Wood a Subpoena to be here, my Lord, but he pray'd to be excus'd, yes, my Lord, he pray'd to be excus'd. I have had a World of Wrong, of Wrong, my Lord, a World of Wrong, yes, my Lord, a World of Wrong have I had, and

I ran out with a Candle, and saw the Prosecutor sitting on the Stones at Brown's Door, and a Man (which I believe was the Prisoner) pulling a Handkerchief off his Neck, and then he ran away. The Prosetor's Nose was cut, and he was very bloody. He ask'd me for a little Water; I told him I'd give him a Farthing's worth of Small-beer, and so I lifted him up, but he sell down again, whether it was owing to Drink, or to the Damage he had suffer'd, I can't say; at last I got him into the Chandler's Shop, and gave him some Small-beer, and ask'd him why he did not get a Dram? He felt in his Pocket, and said he had lost 4s. but hop'd his Note was safe; but searching farther, he said that was gone too; so I left him, and went to bed.

I was just come out of Place, and wanting a Lodging I was recommended to Kit Henley's, at the Ship in Peter-street, in St. James's. The Prisoner and Will. Ryland us'd to lye in the Stable, and ride out between eight and nine at Night, and come in again about one in the Morning. On Thursday Morning they took the Blanket off my Bed; I got up to see what they did with it; I saw the Prisoner there with his Hat ty'd under his Chin; their Horses sweated, and Kit Henley tore the Blanket in two, and laid one Piece on each Horse. They came in to drink, and Henley told them he wanted Money to pay his Landlord; the Prisoner said he had no Money, but he had Money's worth, and gave him something, but I did not see what it was. The Landlord went out in the Morning and came in again, and brought them some Money, and they paid him 24 s. and I gave an Account of this before Justice Lambert.</p>

I advised the Prisoner to discover what he knew, for I told him, if he would not, Henley would. He refus'd for a pretty while, but at last confess'd he had robb'd a Gentleman on a Hackney Coach-box, going to Kensington, of a Watch, and about half a Crown in Money. I found out the Coachman, by enquiring what Coach had been robb'd, and he told me Mr. Lee was his Fare: I went to Mr. Lee, and he describ'd the Watch to me, and particularly, that in the inside Case, there was the Picture of a Friar killing a Nun.</p>

He had it three Weeks before he came there, and lay there constantly except one Night.</p>
<p>Court. How do you know it was the 22d of November?</p>
<p>Tomson. It was Yesterday (Thursday) was a Fortnight. I came home, and saw him a-Bed between one and two in the Afternoon, and he was violent bad indeed, and he got up between two and three, and between three and four he went out with me.</p>
<p>Court. Tho' he was so violent bad?</p>
<p>Tomson. Yes; we went to Apothecaries-Hall, to get a Medicine Mr. Henley had given me a Receipt of. They would not sell so small a Quantity there, but directed me to a Chimist's in the Hay-Market, and the Prisoner was so bad then, that he could not go back for he said, his Ague was very strong upon him. So we took a Boat and went to Mr. Godfrey the Chimist's, and in the Way home, we met Ryland. Ryland did not go with us then, but came some time after. The Prisoner's Wife had got some Water-gruel, and Turnips, and Sage-tea ready. Ryland Supp'd with us, and stay'd all Night, for he had had some words with his Wife, and would have kill'd her, but I got between, and parted them, and so he swore he would not go home with her.</p>
<p>Prisoner. You saw me find the Watch.</p>
<p>Tomson. Next Morning, being Friday, he lay a-Bed 'till nine a Clock, and about ten he got up, and went with me to Tottenham-Court about some Business.</p>

<p>Tomson. To take the Air.</p>
