He told me that his Master, who (he said) liv'd at Nottingham, had sent him about the Country with Orders to receive this Money for Goods, but I thought it more likely that he had committed some Robbery, or Murder, and so I fetch'd Assistance and apprehended him on suspicion, upon which he at first said he'd make me pay for stopping him on his Journey - But afterwards he own'd that he had robb'd his Master East.</p>

My Father, Humphry Buckle, seiz'd the Prisoner, and said he should go with us before the Justice. The Prisoner refused, and pulling out a Pocket-Book, said, Here's my Orders from my Master in the Country. I did not see the Writing, for he made a Hand of it; but I saw 48 Guineas, 12 Portugal Pieces of 3 l. 12 s. each, and some Doubloons, and double Doubloons, I think they call 'em. The Morning ( after he had been before the Justice ) as I lay by him on the Bed at the White-Bear, he confess'd to me, that he had robb'd his Master East of that Gold, and that he took it out of the Scratoir.</p>

The Distiller not liking the Company I was in, advised me to leave my Watch with him, for fear I should lose it, but I told him I was able enough to take care of it myself; so I went out with the Prisoners, and in a Minute my Watch was gone, and they run away.

I again desir'd him to let me take Care of his Watch. No, says he, I warrant ye I can take care of that myself; they must be cunning indeed, if they can get it from me.

Dun went from his House in the Minories, to the Prisoner's House, by the Tenters, in Moor-Fields; we asked him to go with us, to look for a Chance. He said he'd go and see what could be done in the new Street, I think 'tis Queen-street, which is hard by where he lives. At the farthest End we saw a Light in the Kitchen Window; and looking over the Pallisades, says the Prisoner, there's a Chance of a Silver Cup, if we cou'd get at it. We soon contrived a Way. They two hoisted me over the Pallisades, into the Airey, and I listed up the Sash. I suppose the Maid had lately been washing, for some Sheets and other Things lay on a Table by the Window. I took out the Cup, three Pair of Sheets, a Shift, and a Handkerchief, and had taken more, but that we were afraid the Maid would come down and surprize us. I handed the Cup up first, and the Prisoner not being tall enough to reach it as he stood, he rais'd himself up, and leaning over the Pallisades, took it in his Mouth; then I gave them the Linnen, which they haul'd through betwixt the Bars Dun helpt me up. The Prisoner gave him the Cup, and covering the Linnen with his Great-coat, carried it into the Vinegar-field, where he left it, and went Home, and returned with a Bag which he had forgot to bring out with him at first. He put the Linnen in the Bag, and so we went to Mr. Cotterel's, a

Dun told Mrs. Cotterel, he wanted some Money, and so had taken his Wife's Cup, and was going to sell it. Why, says Cotterel, as you look like well dress'd Persons, and have drank here before, I'll lend you a Guinea upon it. Dun told her that would not do, for he must sell it for two Guineas. Then, says she, I'll let you have 38 s. and if you redeem it in a Month, it is yours; if not, it is mine: So we struck a Bargain, she paid us the Money, and Dun, I, and the Prisoner, went to the Prisoner's Lodging, where we made a Dividend, each Man taking a Pair of Sheets, and 12 s. 8 d. in Money. - I discovered the Robbery in about a Fortnight afterwards.

About 1 in the Morning, a little Man (like Simmonds) came and snatch'd my Pocket-book out of my Coat-pocket, I was then awake, for I had just had my Nap out. Aha! says I, What's that for? And catching up my Stick, I follow'd him. He turn'd back, and cut me into the Skull with some Weapon, I thought it was a Pistol by the Brightness, but Fidzar, their Accomplice, says it was a Cafe-Knife.
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173401160007"/> With that I lifted up my Stick to take him a Knock, when Fidzar appear'd, and Smoaking Jack, I suppose it was he, came behind me, seiz'd my Arm, and took my Stick away, and fell a beating and mauling me. The other, who was like Simmonds, kept pushing me in the Head with the Knife, and said, You Dog, do you resent it? He wounded me so that my Skull might be seen in five Places, and I was almost blinded with the Blood that run down my Face I found my self over power'd, and begg'd for my Life : You Dog, says he with a Knife, speak another Word, and I'll shoot you thro' the Heart, and with that he stabb'd the Knife against my Breast, but the Stroke falling upon the Button of my Coat, I received no hurt by it. They took my Hat and Wig, a C knife, a Fork, a Razor, a half Shirt, and 20 d. in Money, and then they wanted my Coat, which I was very for I had no Waist swore they would have it, or be the the Death of me, and so they went to beating and kicking me again and believe would have kill'd me, but that Fidzar, who was the least of the three begg'd for my Life, and took the Knife from Simmonds, and threw it over into the Horse-road : It was a Moon-light Night, for the Moon was at the Full; but I was robb'd in the Shade of the Hay-rick, and therefore I could not see their Faces so plain as certainly to know 'em again. They took my Coat, and left me for dead, and went off; but Steel came back and gave me a Blow on the old Wound, and ask'd me if I knew any of them, and then he beat me on the Eyes and Mouth, to hinder me from speaking or seeing, and so he went away again - Besides what I mentioned before, they took out of my Pocket a particular Thing that I kept secret, for no Body but myself knew that I had any such thing about me, and this Thing Fidzar describ'd to me so exactly, that I was satisfy'd he knew something of the Robbery - It was a turn'd Stick for a Snuff-Mill.</p>

Why don't you know him? says Simmonds, it's smoaky Jack - That's a Nick-name that Steel goes by; so we turn'd out together about 11 at Night. They let me to Hide- Park, and so into the Field behind Buckingham-Wall : Now, says Simmond, let's cross to that Hay-cock ; we agreed, and he led the Way, and coming to the Hay-cock, the Prosecutor was lying under it, Damn says Simmonds, Who's here? And prese took a Pocket-book out of the Prosecutor's Pocket; the Prosecutor got up to follow him, but was stopp'd by Smoaky Jack, who took off his Hat and Wig, and beat him se- verely; when his Wig was off I saw he was bald headed, tho' he was but a middle Man. Simonds push'd a Knife at him would have kill'd him, but I begg'd his, and got the Knife away; I saw it was bent, and I toss'd it over the Rail into the P; but Smoaky Jack still kept beating, and kicking, and abusing him, and at last pull'd off his Coat.

The Hat and Wig were in my my Hands for I had them from Smoaky, when he took 'em from the Prosecutor; was any Mo- ney they sunk it, for I had no part of it. When we had got the Prosecutor's Coat we left him, but getting under the Rail I saw one of the Company turn back - I believe it was Simmonds - and I and the other coming to a high Bank, we waited for him, because two of us could not get over without the Assistance of a third, and so we help'd each other up, and went over Hedge and Ditch, 'till we came to a Ditch too wide for us, and then we return'd by the same Hay- cock, and came to Buck's at St. Giles's by 3 a Clock on Sunday Morning. I wash'd the Blood out of the Coat, and then Simmonds put it on, and Smoakey and he went away together. They to me at Buck's, about 9 the same Morning. They two toss'd up for their share in the
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173401160008"/> Coat, Simmonds won Smoakey's part and he was to pay me for my part; he had the sham Shirt too, and I had the Hat and Wig; the Wig I sold for 6 d. but the Hat (which we valu'd at 10 d ) I kept for my own wear. Simmonds did not go out with us that Night, but with Sutton and Stick-in-the-Mud* and a heap of them, that frequented Buck's House. Next Morning when I came to Buck's, expecting Simmonds would meet me there, and pay me for my part of the Coat, I heard that he, and Sutton, and others were taken up for robbing a Gentleman in Mary-bone-Fields.</p>

As I was near the Door, I went to go out, but found the Door was fast: I had reason to think I was in bad Hands, and feeling for my Gold-watch, I miss'd it. I told him I was afraid he was a great Villain, and if he did not restore the Watch, I would raise the Neighbourhood, which might be of ill Consequence to them all. Says he, I'll try what I can do for you; but if I get it, what will you give? I ask'd him, What he requir'd? He said, he would not meddle with it under 5 Guineas. I reply'd it was very unreasonable in him, to insist upon any thing for helping me to my Watch when he knew how it was lost; but however, I shew'd him 2 Guineas. Well, says he, I'll consult about it; and so he and the two Prisoners went aside into a Box, and order'd me not to come near. In about 10 Minutes he call'd me in, bid me lay down the two Guineas, and look in the Window: I desir'd to see the Watch first, upon which he drew the Curtain, and I saw it. I clapp'd the two Guineas on the Table, sprung to the Window, and got the Watch, intending to take up my Money again, but he took it up before me; I re- proach'd him with his Usage, and insisted on his returning the two Guineas; upon which he and the two Women laid Hands on me, and drag'd me to the farther End of the Room; I thought my self in imminent Danger, and dragg'd them towards the Door, and they dragg'd me back again. Says Distance, He'll be too hard for us, let us throw him into the Cellar. This added to my Surprize, and I told them, I hop'd they had no design upon my Life, and again threaten'd to alarm the Neighbourhood. And indeed, at last I found a Necessity to cry out, Murder! and Thieves! when by God's Mercy, the Watchman being upon his Rounds, came to my Assistance, and they were all carry'd to the Compter, but Stanley made his Escape from them.</p>

The Prisoner and I lodg'd at Mrs. Whitehead's* in Bit-Alley in Turnbull-street - Her Husband is a Watch-maker - We went thence about Midnight, and walked up and down to look for a Chance, 'till we came to the Prosecutor's House. There the Prisoner took a sort of a Chissell and split the Flap of the Cellar-window in two, and raising up one of the pieces, I took out a Barrel of Anchovies that stood upon the Stairs; I felt more, but they stood so close together, that we could not get another, without pulling up the remaining part of the plank, which at last, with a good deal of Trouble, I made a shift to manage, and then he took out another Barrel. We could then have got into the Cellar, but some of the Barrels rolling down the Stairs, made a Noise, and so we went off. He took one, and I another, and carry'd them home, where we let them lie 'till Day-light, and then went with them to Mrs. Whitehead's in Charter-house-Lane, for at that time she did not live at home, but kept out of the Way upon Account of receiving some-Plate that was stolen. We shewed her the Anchovies; she said they were poor Stuff, and ask'd how much we must have. I told her to take no less than 7s. 6d. The Woman of the House said, there had been a Noise about her having, stolen Goods in her House, and therefore it was not safe to leave the Anchovies - I forget her Name, but I think they call her Jenny - So they were wrap'd up in an Apron, and sent to Mrs. Taylor, who keeps a Pawnbroker's and Chandler's Shop, against the Blue-Boar, in Barbican. Then the Prisoner and I took a Walk towards the Prosecutor's, and heard the People talking about the Robbery. Coming back, we met Jenny in Smithfield: She gave us 4s. 6d. and said it was all that Whitehead could get - I surrender'd my self, January 2, to Mr. Claxton, who with two more went with me to Mr. Cross, the Constable, and he carry'd me to Justice Ribe.</p>

She was not up, but bid us bring the Great-coats to Taylor's in Barbican, for the other Things we shar'd betwixt us. We went thither, and she came to us. I told her the Coats were worth 18 s. but we must not have less than 16. The Prisoner and I went over to the Ale-house, and in a little Time she brought us 14s. and said if that was too little, we might have the Coats again in a Fortnight. We took the Money and shared it equally, and so we went to a Brandy-shop in Rag-fair, where we used to be harboured.

As I was drinking at Mr. Elkin's House, Mrs. Baker came in almost murder'd, and said she had been robb'd by a lusty Fellow in a Brewer's Apron, and that he run down the Street. We follow'd, and under the Gatehouse Gateway, he was quarrelling with a Woman, who cry'd out, and he run about forty Yards, and got behind a Coach that stood against the Chequer Ale-house in the Broad-sentry (Sanchary) where I took him, and the young Woman came up, and said that's he that took my Handkerchief.</p>
<p>Prisoner. No you took me by my Master's Dray, with a lighted Link in my Hand.</p>
<p>Drew. You had a Link, but it was not lighted.</p>
<p>Prisoner. What Time of Night was it?</p>
<p>Drew. About a Quarter past Ten.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I belong to Mr. Whiteman, a Brewer in Blackman-street. My Fellow-Servant had the Dray-horse in his Hand, and I went behind with a lighted Link to take Care of the Beer, and it's very likely that I shou'd do a Robbery with a Link in my Hand. - My Fellow-servant is sick, or else he would have been here.</p>

The Prisoner and I frequented Mrs.Church's Brandy-Shop, at Salt-Peter-Bank, in Rag-Fair, we were often there from Morning to Night. On the Sunday before New-Years Day, we went from thence about 10 at Night to break open the Prosecutor's House, which we had attempted once before, but were hinder'd by the Watch. When we came to the Place, I wrenched open the Lock of the Cellar-door with a Chissel; but it making a Noise, we look'd up and saw a Light in the Window, and being afraid the People were alarm'd, we went off a little, and stood upon the Watch; but the Candle being soon put out, we concluded they were gone to Bed, and had not heard us. So struck a Light in my Tinder-box, and the Prisoner went down with it, and lighted a Candle below, for he had a Candle and Matches in his Pocket. I waited above to look out; the Watch coming by past 11, I bid him lie close, and stepp'd aside; but they taking no notice, I return'd to my post. The Prisoner brought up one Firkin, which I set by, and then he fetch'd another, and each of us taking one, we carry'd
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173401160017"/> them to Whitechapel-Mount, and cover'd them with Dung. We staid there till 4 a Clock, and then went to Church's Shop, for we knew she would be up by that time. When it was light, I propos'd we should fetch them; but the Prisoner being very sleepy would not go himself, but gave another Man (we call him French Peter) Six-pence to bring one of them. Peter and I went together and brought them to Church's. Where they stood all Day, for we could not find a Chap. Next Morning I met

The Firkins weigh'd about half a Hundred and eight Pounds a-piece, but one of them not proving so good as the other, the Women would give us but 16 s. for the Whole. We knew not where to mend our Market, and so we consented to take their Money: Anderson carry'd one away, and I carry'd the other, to a House hard by, to which I afterwards directed the Prosecutor; but it was gone before he came. She said she would come to Church's and pay us. I went to eat a ha'p'orth of boil'd Potatoes in the Fair, and going back to Church's I met Anderson, who told me she had paid the Money to the Prisoner. I went to him, and he gave me 8 s. for my half - No, it was but 7 s, 9 d. for we had two Pots of Cherry-beer, which he paid for out of the Whole.</p>
