And as we were passing by the backside of the first House, from Tower-hill, going into Rag-fair, we look'd in at a Window, where there was a Candle, and saw Whitesides trying on a pair of the Gloves; upon which we went to the Fore-door, and found Marshall shutting up the Stall (it was an Apple-stall;) we search'd him, and took one pair of Gloves out of his Pocket, and then we went in; but having made some Disturbance in seizing Marshall, I suppose Whitesides took the Alarm and hid the Gloves; for at our first going into the Back-room we could find nothing but the Paper they had been wrapp'd in, and one pair lying loose on the Dresser: However, upon farther search we found the rest under a Cherry-Sieve. Whitesides ran up Stairs, and Marshall got into the Cellar; but we got a Constable and secur'd them both.</p>

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173402270003"/> and all on a sudden he was gone. I was hardly three Minutes after, when Robert Alcock came out, and said, he had lost a Parcel of Gloves. I told him what a loose Chap I had seen, and that if we went immediately to Rag-fair, it was a Chance if we did not find him a selling the Gloves in some of the Gin-ships. So we and 2 more went, and at a Back-window, I saw Whitesides standing by a Candle, and trying a Pair on. We took Marshall at the Door, and found a pair of Gloves in his Pocket, and going backwards, Whitesides ran up, and Marshall down Stairs. One pair of Gloves lay on the Dresser, and the rest we found under a Cherry-sieve, which a Girl was sitting on. Marshall bid Whitesides go and fetch the Man they bought the Gloves of, and Whitesides would fain have gone, but we would not trust him.</p>
<p>Whitesides. I was try'd here last Sessions, and resolving to get clear of ill Company I enter'd my self on board a Ship; but going to take Leave of my Brother, I met Marshall, who ask'd me to buy a pair of Gloves, and so I stepp'd into the House to try them on.</p>
<p>Marshall. That's very true, for Whitesides is an innocent Man. I found the Gloves in a Dust-hole by the Postern on Tower-hill, and meeting one Mrs Pattison, she desir'd me to call at the Corner-house going to Rag-fair, and help the Girl (

<p>About 7 at Night the Prisoner and Wood (who pretended to be a Captain) came to the Prosecutor's Shop for 2 Ounces of Nutmegs. Mrs. Shaw had then 5 or 6 other Customers in her Shop, and tho' she offer'd to serve the Prisoner and the Captain, they very civilly refused, and waited till those who came first were served and gone. Then She took out a Drawer of Nutmegs, they tumbled them over, telling her they would have the largest they could pick out. Captain, says the Prisoner, these are very fine ones, you had as good take a quarter of a Pound, and that will serve us all the Voyage. She put some in the Scale; the Prisoner turned them over there too, and the Captain again got his Hand among those in the Drawer. She saw the Captain put his Hand twice to his Pocket, which giving her a Suspicion, she watched him more narrowly, and the third Time, perceiving that he took some Nutmegs in his Hand, pray, says She, buy; but don't Steal. What do ye mean? says the Prisoner, you mistake the Captain, he's no such Person. Upon that, she catch'd hold of the Captain's Coat, and felt the Nutmegs, and while she held him, and was taking them out, Mr. Osborn her Neighbour came over: She told him how they had served her, but the Captain giving a Spring got loose and ran away. The Prisoner said, he was surprized the Captain should do such a Thing, and offer'd to pay for what was missing. She told him, she believ'd he had done the same, by his being so busy with his hand in the Scale. Mr. Osborn offer'd to search him, but the Prisoner swore he should not, and endeavour'd to get out; but Mr. Osborn stopt him at the Door, and in struggling the Prisoner fell in the Street. Mr. Barclay coming to Mr. Osborn's Assistance, they brought the Prisoner into the Shop again, when the Prisoner making a Motion with his Hand to his Pocket, 27 Nutmegs, 17 d. and a Handkerchief fell on the Ground. The Prisoner own'd the Handkerchief; but said he knew nothing of the Money or the Nutmegs. He was carried before Sir

I went to the Place, and found a Child dead; it appear 'd to be upwards of two Years old. I found a black Circle about the Neck, and a Mark like the Print of a Thumb, under the right Ear. Some Gentlemen told me, they had seen three Women coming from the Place where the Child lay; and I afterwards found, that one of these three were the Prisoner, who was the Mother of the Child. I ask'd her, how she could be so barbarous as to murder her own Infant? She said she had only stripp'd it about 7 at Night, and laid it naked in the Ditch; and this was all that I could get out of her for a pretty while; but at last, in a violent Agony of Grief, she said, Then, Sir, I will tell you how I did it; but there was a Vagabond Creature, one Sukey, that persuaded me to it; and was equally concern'd with me. On Sunday Night we took the Child into the Fields, and stripp'd it, and ty'd a Linen Handkerchief hard about its Neck to keep it from crying, and then laid it in a Ditch. And after that, we went together, and sold the Coat and Stay for a Shilling, and the Petticoat and Stockings for a Groat. We parted the Money, and join'd for a Quartern of Gin. The Prisoner made the like Confession before Justice Chamberlain, insisting upon it, that the other Creature Sukey was equally guilty.</p>

When she came to work, over Night, we ask'd her if she had carry'd her Child back to the Work house (for the Child was kept in the Parish Work-house, and she had got Leave to take it out for 2 or 3 Hours) she told me, she had not, but her Mother had. She worked 'till One in the Morning, and then had a Dram, and would have had another, but I would not let her. Thn she desir'd a Penny to buy a Roll and Cheese. I gave her a Penny; but instead of fetching a Roll and Cheese, she brought in a Roll and a h'p'orth of Gin - Then she said, she had done something that deserved Newgate. I told her I hoped she had not wrong' my Mistress, but if she had, her best way would be to make a plain Confession, and then I believe my Mistress, would be the more favourable to her. She said it was no such thing as that; but she had left her Child all Night in the Field. What? says I, in such a dismal cold Night! How can you be so cruel ? She said she had not done it, but one Sukey persuaded her to it. So I bid Elizabeth Scot take a piece of Bread and Butter, and go with me and the Prisoner to fetch the Child, for the Prisoner had not told me the Child was dead, and I thought it would be a hungry as well as Cold. But when we came to the Place, we found the Child stript and lying dead in a Ditch, with a Linnen-rag tied hard about its poor Neck.</p>

On Saturday Morning, my Wife told me, as she came by Mr. Hackshaw's empty House, which is but 3 Doors from mine, she saw the Bar of the Cellar-door loose. Then, says I, some Rogues have been stealing the Leaden-sink in the Kitchen. That would be worse, says she, than when they stole the Pipes a Year ago. As I had the Key of the House, I went to examine how it was; I found the Lead of the Sink was taken out, and laid upon the Floor ready to be carried away. O, thinks I, the Gentlemen will come to fetch it at Night, and I can't do less than to give them a Welcome. So I spoke to

I went again in less than an Hour and heard a ticking in the Cellar, and by and by a light was struck. I goes home to my Wife - Her Name is Nanny, says I, now my Chaps are in the House, but call the Watch - I warrant you the Rogues have got Pistols, if they have, says I, we'll send the Dog in first and he won't value their Pistols, for he don't know a Pistol from a Broom-stick. Then Bob shall go with his Gun, and Fire upon them, and I'll hide myself behind the Door, till the Danger is over. But all this wou'd not make her easy. And so being willing to obey my Wife's orders, I ran to the Watch as fast as if I was running for an Estate, and brought them with me: But when we came to the Door they were so full of their good breeding, that they stood disputing who should enter first: I was vext at it, for I thought their Noise would alarm the Rogues within, and so it proved, for presently I heard
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173402270015"/> a Window slap to. Now, thinks I, they have made their Escape Backwards, and I have watch'd all Night for nothing. So I push'd in foremost, and ran into the Kitchen; I saw no Body at first, but looking into the Closet, there stood the Prisoner, squeez'd in a Corner bolt upright, with a Plaisterer's Lathing-hammer in his Hand. I Knock'd him down, and catch'd him by the Collar as he fell. His Head run with Blood, and I was sorry to see it; but I thought it was better so, than he should serve me worse with his Hammer. I took the Hammer from him - Here it is - And this Knife, but it is not worth a Fill of a Farthing. When I had pull'd him out and secur'd him, the Watch came in to my Assistance.
