He had a Loin of Mutton in his Lap, I took it from him, and saw that he was wounded in the Thigh. I did not see any Knife in her Hand, but a Knife drop'd from her side upon Mr. Andrews's Seat, and it was bloody.

<p>Mr. Kersey, Surgeon. The Wound enter'd the upper Part of the Thigh, a little below the Groin, and divided the crural Artery, so that the Wound was Mortal; for the Deceas'd lost so much Blood, that it was impossible to save his Life. I said to the Prisoner, Was it not barbarous to stab the Man thus? And she answered, Tho' I did stab him, it was but in jest. I reply'd, You will not much care to be hang'd for your Jest. Who heard me say that I stabb'd him? Says she. Why I did, you impudent Jade, says I. I have heard that she and two or three more Women like her self used to resort to Hornsey-Lane.</p>

So she put it upon the head of a Cask, and they both went away together; the Man came again by himself, in half an Hour, and wanted the Bundle. No, says I, the Woman bid me deliver it to Nobody but herself. Well, says he, then take care of it and don't let her have it except I come with her, for there is something of Value in it. Something of Value? Says I, Then it can never belong to her, for she thinks herself rich when she's worth a Bushel of Cinders - You must know she's a Cinder-Wench - It's no matter for that, says he, there is a Salver Taster in it. So I opens the Handkerchief, and there was a Parcel of Rabbit-skins, a Brass-candlestick, and this Silver-cup. Is this your Taster? Says I, 'tis a good sizeable one! By and by in comes the Woman, and I charges a Constable with them.

And then she and I went through Temple Bar into Fleet-street, and turn'd down Chancery-lane, and so came to Fetter lane, and then to Shoe-lane, and down Harp-Alley to Fleet-ditch, and up Fleet-lane to the Old-Baily, and cross Newgate-street to Giltspur-street, and through Pye-Corner into Smithfield, and so to Long-lane, and cross Aldersgate-street to Barbican, and then down Red-Cross-street, and up White-Cross-street to Jemmit's Brandy-shop; and there we drank together, and she left the Things and then we parted.</p>
<p>Court. But you thought fit to call there and demand the Bundle, as if you had aright to it; and it seems you knew there was something of value in it.</p>
<p>Jemmit again. When the Constable came, Edesbury said, for Christ's sake be favourable, or I shall be hang'd for these Things; and he own'd they were taken at the Fire.</p>

So I went in and said to these Witnesses, 'Tis a sad thing to swear away a Man's Life; and therefore I'd have you be very cautious - Are you sure that this is the Man?

On the 17th I went to buy a Hat at Ben. Green's in Rosemary-lane, and there I found one of those Hats I had lost - Green produced Lucas, from whom he said he had the Hat; and by Lucas's Information the Prisoners were taken.</p>
<p>Ben. Green. Lucas brought this Hat to me to dress - The Captain came to buy
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173409110010"/> a Hat, for he said all his Hats were stolen out of his Ship. He bought one, and in an Hour afterwards came for another. Here's a Hat would do for you now, says I, but it's none of mine, it was brought to be dress'd; and so I shew'd him the Hat that Lucas left. Why this is one of the Hats that I have lost, says the Captain. Is it? says I, then I can help you to the Man I had it from. And so I took Lucas at a House he frequented in Wells-street</p>

I and the two Prisoners were drinking at Reynold's Brandy-shop, in Weil street, near the Watch-house, in Rag-Fair, and about 10 at Night we went from thence to Iron-Gate, where we stole a Boat and a pair of Sculls, and row'd about to see what we could get.

Then Newell struck a Light, and lighting a Candle in a dark Lanthorn, he gave it to Martin, who went in at the Window, but came out again presently, and said he heard a Woman speak to a Child. Upon this I pull'd off my Shoes and crept in, and brought out 2 Coats, 2 Petticoats, 3 Hats, a silver Watch, a pair of silver Buckles, some Linen, and other Things. My Wife sold the Watch for 36s. I kept 12s. for my own Share, and gave the Prisoners 12s. a-piece. Martin allow'd 4s. 6d. for the Buckles, he reckoned 18 d. for his own Share, and gave us 18 d. a-piece.

The Prisoner was directed to me by Mr. De Costa, and came to my Lodgings on Sunday the 18th of August, about 4 in the Afternoon. He brought a Letter, in which he said he had received a Bill of Exchange on Mr. Vassalli, and desired me to inform him where Mr. Vassalli lived, that he might direct to him. I told him I would enquire. He came again on Monday, and I went with him to Mr. Welford, who gave him Directions. He came a third time on Wednesday Morning, and desired me to let
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173409110012"/> him write a Letter in my Room. I told him he might have been furnish'd with Pens, and Ink, and Paper at his own Lodgings, which was in Cecil-Court, near St. Martin's-Lane; but if he chose to write in my Room he might. And so he sat down at my Desk and began his Letter. My Desk was open, for I had just been writing there my self; and I had left 17 Guineas, 3 Crown pieces, and some Shillings in one of the Drawers. Before he had done, he desired me to help him to a Glass of Water. I went down and brought a Glass: and he was still writing. When he had finish'd his Letter, he directed it to Mr. Vassalli, and then I shut my Desk, and we both went to Dinner to Mr. Angelis, where we staid till evening; and then went again to my Lodgings, where I found Mr. Costa waiting for me. We all 3 went up into my Room, I open'd my Drawer, and mist my Money. Mr. Costa perceiving some alteration in my countenance, asked me what was the matter, I said I have lost 15 Guineas and 10 s. But I know and can swear who has it - For while my Desk was open, there was Nobody left in the Room but the Prisoner - I added, I'll take the Law, and have satisfaction. The Prisoner turned pale. I went down to ask Mr. Bowden's Advice what I had best to do. The Prisoner and Mr. Costa quickly follow'd me. I asked the Prisoner to stay, but he would not; and so we all went to the Prisoner's Lodgings. And while I was knocking at the Door, he ran down St. Martin's-Lane, and by the Church, I follow'd, and cry'd Stop Thief! And as he was running, he put his Hand in his Pocket and threw the Money upon the Pavement, for I saw the motion of his Hand, and heard the Money fall. He was stopt soon after, though he made great resistance in the mean time. The mob picked up the Money, and a Sharper coming by and claiming it, they gave it to him. When the Prisoner was carried before the Justice, he said I lent him the Money, and being ask'd why he ran away, He answer'd that I assaulted him with a Knife.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I did not ask for Water till after I had done my Letter, and you lock'd the Desk, and took the Key before you went down.</p>
<p>Mr. Tadie. No, I left it open.</p>
<p>Court to the Prisoner. Why did you run from your own Door, and throw the Money away?</p>
<p>Prisoner. After the Prosecutor had complain'd of his Loss, I said to Mr. Costa Let us go, or we shall be imputed. And when I came to my own Door, I was assaulted in the dark by 3 Men, who demanded my Money; and therefore I run.</p>
<p>Court. But why did you throw the Money away?</p>
<p>Prisoner. I took it out of my Pocket in order to save it, but in the Fray it dropt out of my Hand.</p>
<p>Mr. Costa. I waited in the Evening for Mr. Tadie at Mr. Bowden's, who said he had not seen him since Noon. While we were talking, Mr. Tadie and the Prisoner came, and we all 3 went up into Mr. Tadie's Room. He open'd his Desk and pull'd out his Drawers; upon which he look'd very uneasy, and gave himself a knock of the Pate, - What have you lost any Money? says I, Yes, by God, says he, but I know by God who has got it, and I'll see the end on't. But he did not name any body then, though he told me the next Day.</p>
<p>Court. Did not Tadie say, that Nobody was left in the Room but the Prisoner while the Desk was open?</p>
<p>Tadie. No, I told de Costa that I knew who had it, but I did not name the Person at that time.</p>
<p>Mr. Costa. While Mr. Tadie went down to Mr. Burden, the Prisoner turn'd his back to me, fumbled in his Pocket, to shift his Money as I thought, and he dropt a Guinea, or some such piece of Gold; I stoop'd to reach it, but he took it up himself - When we came to the Prisoner's Door, Mr. Tadie knock'd, and then the Prisoner ran away, and Mr. Tadie after him; but I staid at the Door - The Prisoner was a stranger, and had been but 2 or 3 Days in England.</p>

I was going to take up a Guinea and a half more, but my Mistress came and bid me not touch anymore; and so I kick'd it towards the stranger, and bid him take it up himself. Then I went in; but hearing a fresh Noise, I stept to the Door again, and Mr. Tadie had got hold of the Prisoner. What, says I, was it you that was robb'd?

I saved his Life once before, when he went to hang himself; for his Sister found him swinging, and set up such a damn'd Squaul of Fire and Murder, that I run up in a surprize.

I stood waiting and looking for his return; till I saw a Man coming into the Field, and supposing it might be my Husband I turned about and went forward slowly. I had not gone far before I was overtaken by two Men in light Colour'd Stockings. They past by me without speaking. I was afraid they were Thieves, because of their white Stockings - For it seems white Stockings is a mighty Fashion among Thieves - One of these Men was the Prisoner. They walked a little before me, and coming into a small puddle of Water, the Prisoner offer'd me his Hand. I thank'd him, and so we went on to the End of the Field; where the path divides in two; one goes to a Gate, and one to the Gap. I went towards the Gate, and they the other way: But presently they turn'd towards me - And one of them, not the Prisoner, came up and said, What Money have you got young Woman? I told him none. Upon which he pull'd a Pistol out of his Pocket, and took away my Bundle, and gave it to the Prisoner. Then he took off my Cloak and Apron, and put his Hand down my Bosom; and asked if I had got any thing there. I said - No - Don't frighten me, for I am with Child, Damn your blood, says he, stand still and I won't hurt you - The Prisoner at the same laid his Hand upon my Shoulder, and ask'd me why I made such a Noise, and said they would do me no Harm, if I would be quiet. Then the other took my Ring off, and ask'd me again what Money I had in my Pocket; I said a little; and was going to take it out, but he thrust his Hand in and broke my Pocket off. There was 5 s. a Cypher-ring, and my Wedding-Ring, and some other Things in my Pocket. I begg'd them to return me my Wedding-ring, and promised to send them twice the value of it to any Place that they would appoint, and never complain of them. But they jump'd over the Ditch and went off with that and the rest of the Things - The Prisoner had dark Clothes, white Stockings, and a blue Linsey Woolsey Apron. I turn'd back and met my Husband about the middle of the Field, and told him how I had been robb'd.</p>

<p>William Ward. I live in William Newman's House, where the Prisoner had work'd a Week; I miss'd the Money in my Chest on Friday Afternoon. I suspected the Prisoner, and charg'd him with taking it. He at first deny'd, but afterwards confess'd it; and pull'd part of it out of his Pocket. He said he had laid out the rest, which was 4 l. in buying a Horse, and some Clothes at Watford; tho' it was then but 7 Hours since he stole it. I found 7 l. 13 s. upon him, and I got the Money again for the Horse, but 36 s. was quite lost.</p>

<p>Prisoner. I live hard by the Prosecutor, and ask'd him to lend me a Hat? He said I might take it, and so I did. But I had been drinking Two-penny, and being in Liquor I laid down to sleep in the Stone cutter's Yard in Shoreditch, next Door to the Gin-shop, and somebody came and stole the Hat away, and this is two Years ago.</p>
<p>Court, to the Prosecutor. Why did you not prosecute sooner?</p>
<p>Jackson. I found him at a Brandy-shop 3 Hours after the Exchange, as he call'd it, and ask'd him where my Hat was? He answered, Damn it, I have none of it. I carry'd him before Justice Manly, but not having my Witnesses there, he was discharged. And after that, he was gone, I don't know where, for above a Year, and I took him as soon as I cou'd - I heard that he offer'd to sell the Hat - But I have no Witnesses here that can prove it.

<p>Court. What happen'd after you were carry'd into this Alley?</p>
<p>Mason. Carry'd? - No, have a care of that, I was not so drunk as that came to neither - I was not carried - I walk'd
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173409110019"/> or as a Body may say, I was conducted, by this Woman, as I took her to be; but I can't be positive what she was, Because I did not examine her, and I would not swear to a Thing that I was not sure of.</p>
<p>Court. Was it either of the Prisoners?</p>
<p>Mason. No; no, it was none of the Prisoners - But I was conducted up into a Room where I found the Prisoners. We had 2 or 3 Quarterns of Cherry-brandy, and other Liquors to the Quantity of 2 or 3 Shillings. Then they persuaded me to go to Bed, because they saw me in Liquor; and so I began to strip, and in the first Place the Shoes - Aye, I suppose the Shoes must come off first; and then to be sure the Breeches must come next, and the Breeches I laid upon the Table, and then -</p>
<p>Court. You went to Bed?</p>
<p>Mason. No; I don't suppose I went to Bed - But I was making Preparations to go to Bed, and so far is right. And when I had laid my Breeches upon the Table, the Prisoner, Betty Cook, snatches them up, and runs down Stairs with them. I cry'd out, Stop Thief ! my Breeches! my Breeches! she has got my Breeches, and all that I have - And indeed it was all that I had at that time.</p>
<p>Court. All that you had?</p>
<p>Mason. That is, all that I had in my Breeches, when my Breeches were off - Take me right - I don't say t'other and all - No, no - that was all safe.</p>
<p>Court. What did you lose?</p>
<p>Mason. My Watch, and two half Guineas, and 30 s. may I believe I could swear to a Guinea more, for I had 4 or 5 l. not long before I met the Woman, and I had been in no other Company that Night.</p>
<p>Court. Where did you get fuddled?</p>
<p>Mason. At the Tavern along with some Friends.</p>
<p>Court. Then you were in Company?</p>
<p>Mason. Yes; in Company with Men, but with none of the other female Sex, that was what I meant, for I was not so drunk as not to know one from t'other - I left my Friends at a Tavern upon Fleet-street-hill, and at several other Places, and I had my Money and Watch then, and that was not much above half an Hour before I lost my Breeches</p>
<p>Court. Did you follow the Prisoner Cook when she went away with your Breeches?</p>
<p>Mason. No; the other Prisoner Bartlett bolted the Door, and would not let me run after my Breeches.</p>
<p>Court. Was the Bolt within side the Room where you were?</p>
<p>Mason. Yes.</p>
<p>Court. And could not you open it then?</p>
<p>Mason. I might have done to, but if I had where should I have found my Breeches?</p>
<p>Court. Did you ever get your Breeches again?</p>
<p>Mason. Yes? a Man brought them to me afterwards, but there was nothing in them except this Rule.</p>
<p>Court. When you were so drunk as you say, could you take so much notice of Cook as to know her again, and especially as you had been such a little while in her Company?</p>
<p>Mason. Yes; for I'll tell you what - It's just like as when a Man was frighted, his Senses strike quicker than ordinary at such a Time.</p>
<p>Court. That's a new Piece of Philosophy.</p>
<p>Prisoner Cook. Did I bring you into the, House?</p>
<p>Mason. No; but you took my Breeche that I'll swear, and I was not over and above drunk neither, for I remember that you were brought out of the Bed, and had no Stockings on, because as I have heard since, you were famous for slight of Hand - And I found you again, about a 11 a Clock, the same Morning, with the Watch upon you - No, that's a Mistake, for you were upon the Watch.</p>

I went and thither and found her upon a Bed. As soon as we came in, I perceived her take something
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173409110020"/> off the Bed, and put it in a Chair, and then she sat down upon it. She desired us to go out a little, because she wanted to make some necessary Occasion. You Saucy Toad, says I, get up! and then we found the Prosecutor's Watch under her. I carry'd her to the Bull-Head, and there she was so outrageous, that she swore, and damn'd, and broke all the Windows, and we were forced to send for a pair of Handcuffs from the Compter, before we could manage her - At last she offered the Prosecutor 18 s. to make the Matter up.</p>

<p>Prosecutor. On Sunday Night between 9 and 10, I met with some Company, and went to drink with them at a House in Newtoner's-Lane, where I left my Watch-case for the Reckoning, and then going out I met with the Prisoner and three more. They ask'd me to drink, and said it should cost me nothing. So they pull'd me into a Gin-shop; I ask'd what was to pay, for they promis'd to treat me. I did not expect they would. They said there was a Crown to pay. I found I was got into ill Company, and therefore pull'd out my Watch, in order to secure it; but the Prisoner snatched it out of my Hand, and ran away. I follow'd her, but could not catch her. Indeed I met with her next Day, and took her up with a Warrant, but I never got the Watch again.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I never saw him before the Monday Morning that he took me up, and then he said he was inform'd by some Neighbours that I had got a Watch that he had lost - But he had pawn'd it a Month before to Bess Thompson.
