<p>Matthew Hebert, the younger. Last Tuesday, Mr. Stonehall (who lives with my Father) told me that he mist a Guinea, and a Moidore out of his Till. He had mist Mony before.

We had a good Character of him when he first came to live in our Family.</p>

I privately advised 'em to send for 2 Constable and Charge her, because I thought she did not come honestly by it; but they would not, and so she went away with it. Mr. Bains, and the Prosecutor's Landlord, told me next Day that such Plate was Advertised. Upon which we went to enquire for her at a Silk-Dyers in Spittle-Fields, Mr. Barns having heard that she had lived there; but when we came thither, we were told that she had been gone from thence above 4 Months We went away thro' some Back-Alleys into Shoreditch, where we accidentally met her with a Piece of Linnen under her Arm. I stopp'd her, and said, Madam, I am glad to see ye! She asked what Business we had with her. We told her she should soon be satisfy'd, and so we took her to the Swan Tavern in Shoreditch; Mr. Earns and the other Man went for a Constable, and charged him with her on Suspicion of being concerned in stealing the Plate. She directed us to Pet. Hughs's Lodging, which was at the Crooked-Billet, hard-by. The Constable went and fetched him, and as soon as she saw him she curs'd and damn'd him for a Son-of-a-Bitch for bringing her into such a Premunire. Peter took 4 or 5 Tea-Spoons out

She said she had it out of the Country, and defy'd the World to touch her Honour. Look ye, says I, It signifies nothing to deny it, for that very Plate which you offered to pawn to Mrs. Slater is advertised - It is By-God? Says she, Then that Rogue Hughs has brought me into a fine Scrape. By her Directions we found Hughs and he gave 5 Tea Spoons to the Constable, and confess'd that he took the Plate from his Master, and that she was not with him when he did it.</p>

So we sold the Spoon for 11s. and hearing that the Prosecutor wanted a Servant, he went to him and was hired, and I went thither afterwards to give him a Character, because I knew his Friends in the Country. And when he came away from his Place, he brought this Plate to me wrapt up in his Shirt, and desired me to sell it for him, and buy him some Linnen, and other Necessaties; I lodged then at Mr. Brets in Shoreditch; but before I came there, I lived with Mr. Miller, a Silk Dyer, in Slaughter-street, in Spittle-fields.</p>

<p>Mr. Liger. On Sunday the 13th of October I miss'd some Buckles out of my Shew-Glass; I thought my Man might have lent 'em: But next Morning my Man told me some Buckles were gone he could not tell how. On the 31st of October Mr. White, the Prisoner's Master came over to me and asked me if I had miss'd any Thing. I said, Yes. Then he shew'd me some Buckles, and asked me if I knew them. I answer'd Yes, very well, these are mine. He told me that he had been robb'd too, and was afraid there was Confederacy between his Servant and mine. Upon this I examined the Prisoner, who confessed that between 11 and 12 at Night, when I was in Bed, he came to my Shop and desired my Man, who is near-sighted, to shew him some Buckles; upon which my Man opening the Shew-Glass, he (the Prisoner) at twice took out several Buckles, and put them into his Pocket.</p>

He said he met a Man in the Street who gave him a Guinea. I thought this was a villainous Story, and what encreased my Suspicion of him was, that a Man at a Brewers told me the Prisoner had presented their Maid with a Diamond Ring worth 20 Guineas. - The Prisoner was carry'd before Mr. Justice Deveil, where he confess'd that he took the Goods out of the Prosecutor's Shew-Glass.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I don't deny that I had the Goods, but they were given me by the Prosecutor's Wife. My first Acquaintance with her was when he and my Master went out of Town together. Her Apprentice being gone out, she desired me to shut up her Shop for her, which I did. And then she said, Ned, what do you want? I said, A Buckle for my Hat, and one for my Stock She bid me take 'em. I asked her what they came to, she said she would not take any Thing of me. After this, I was at her House Thirteen Nights in Fourteen, while they were in Gloucestershire.</p>

I stood still a little to look at 'em. when presently I felt my Watch drawn cut of my Fob. The Prisoner standing next me on my right Side, I collar'd him before he had got his Hand quite from under my Coat, and said, Sirrah, you have got my Watch, but in struggling he twisted himself about, and as I suppose, conveyed my Watch away to some of his Companions. However, some others assisting me we at last got him into a Tavern, where he was searched. My Watch indeed was not found upon him, but the Constable took from him a Handkerchief which was own'd by Mr. Gain.</p>
<p>Prisoner. How came you to expect me?</p>
<p>Mr. Salisbury. Expect ye? I suspected ye, because I found your Hand under my Coat at the same time that I felt my Watch drawn out of my Fob.</p>
<p>Prisoner. When I was at the Tavern the Gentleman said, they did not expect me to be such a Man; and the Prosecutor himself said, If I would send for any Body to my Character, he would not only discharge me, but down on his Knees and beg my pardon.</p>

<p> Second Indictment.</p>
<p>Mr. Gain. I was going by when Mr. Salisbury feiz'd the Prisoner, who made a violent Resistance, and cry'd out Murder. I assisted to thrust him into a Coach, and at last we got him into a Tavern, where the Constable searched him for Mr. Salisbury's Watch, but could not find it. At the same time I happened to have Occasion for my Handkerchief, but feeling for it, I 'mist it. The Constable found a Handkerchief upon him. I said, before I saw it, if it is mine it is stained and snuffy; upon which it was produced, and I knew it to be my own - Here it is.</p>
<p>Mr. Salisbury. I saw the Constable take this Handkerchief out of the Prisoner's Pocket, and Mr. Gain sent to his Mother for two or three more of the same sort, and they matcht exactly.</p>
<p>Prisoner. They were not the same Size by above an Inch.</p>
<p>Mr. Gain. Here is one of the same sort.</p>
<p>Then the two Handkerchiefs were compared, and agreed in every particular.</p>
<p>Mr.Hickman, Constable. Just as I had searched the Prisoner for the Watch, Mr. Gain said, he had lost his Handkerchief, which was stain'd with Snuff. Upon which, I searched the Prisoner again, and found it. Mr. Gain sent for three more which were of the same Size and Colour.</p>
<p>Mr. Gain. The Prisoner at first said, he had had the Handkerchief a Week, and then he said he found it that Night under the Piazza's - I had used it but two Minutes

It was a Moon-light Night, and I had a full view of their Faces; I verily believe that Casey is the Man who collar'd me; and that he who search'd my Pockets was this Man here, Macdonald. I went back to my Men at King David's Fort, and told 'em how I had been robb'd I likewise went to the Constable at the King's Arms in Sun-Tavern Fields, who told me that he should be out upon Duty that Night, and would look after such Fellows as I had describ'd, and then I went home the Street way - Next Morning I went over the same Fields, and called at the Prince of Orange's Head, which joins to the Field were I was rob'd, and left a Description there of the Men who had rob'd me. In about a Fortnight afterwards, some who were acquainted with my Workmen, calling at the Prince of Orange's Head, heard that the Men who rob'd me were apprehended, and that one of them who had made an Information, was in the New-Goal in Southwark. I went thither, and found Macdonald. He asked me if I knew him. I said, yes, I am pretty sure you are one of the Men that rob'd me. He said, it was true enough; for it was he that took the nine Pence, and a Key out of my Pocket, and put them in again; and that he had made his Information before Sir

Then I took up the Piece of Check, and ran with it to Beesly, and gave it him to take care of. Casey and I followed the Prosecutor at a little Distance, as far as Mr. Emery's Garden; then we returned, and meeting Beesly, we all went to Aldgate, where we took Coach, and went to an Ale-house in St. Giles's, which was then kept by one Leadbeater; but he is now run away. There we measured the Check, and found there was 31 Yards; we carried it to Casey's Sister in Covent-Garden, and gave it her to pawn for us; and I likewise gave her a Handkerchief of my own. She brought us 17 s. for the Check, and 2 s. for the Handkerchief. We spent all the Money before we parted, in Victuals, Beer, and Gin; except half a Crown which I paid for a Wig - We lived together three or four Days in a Cellar.</p>

And I had engaged my self for a Guinea to a Doctor. And so she came down and left the Gentleman, and he would not go to Bed by himself. I desired her not to leave him there alone; upon which, she went up again and brought him down. I told him he might have a Bed at the Bear in Bow street.

Ye Dog, says I where's my Watch. Presently the Watch was dropp'd and Beck took it up, and said Here is your Watch, I had like to have catch'd it; and so he gave it me all dirty. We carry'd the Prisoner to the Star Alehouse, and afterwards before a Justice, but he would confess nothing.</p>
<p>W. Beck. As I was standing with my Shop-Mates by the Pastrycook's Shop at the End of Cheapside to see my Lord Mayor's Show, a Crowd of Men came thrusting along. Says my Mate, That tall Fellow there in a Cape-Coat looks like a Pick-Pocket. The Mob turn'd back towards the Old Change, and the Prosecutor turn'd about too and said he had lost his Watch. I went back with him, a great many crouded into the Swan Passage but could not get thro', and so they came out again. The Prisoner was in a Cape Coat. I pointed to him and others and said, There they go by the Joyner's Stand. We follow'd and the Prosecutor took hold of the Prisoner by the Nag's-head Tavern; but the Prisoner was not that Man in the Cape Coat that I saw at first, but there was another Man close by who turn'd about and run, and just as he turn'd I felt something hit against my Foot. I stoop'd down and found it was the Watch.</p>
<p>Court. Did the Watch fall from the Prisoner, or the other Man?</p>
<p>Beck. They had both Cape Coats. The Prisoner stood at my Left Hand. I held him by the Right Shoulder, and the Prosecutor held him on the other Side, and the Watch fell at my Right Foot a Yard from the Prisoner.</p>
<p>Court. If the other Man had taken the Watch, is it likely that he would follow the Prosecutor with it, stand quietly by him, and then throw it away when he was not in Custody, nor so much as suspected.</p>

The Prisoner in a Cape Coat and red Breeches and two or three more Men husseled me, and my Uncle Mr. Tireman so that they could not go one Way or other for 2 or 3 Minutes, and then they went back and Mr. Tireman miss'd his Watch. The People said those Fellows had been larking about for 2 or 3 Hours, we follow'd them. Beck told us they were at the Swan Door; my Uncle and I passed the Prisoner without minding him, but Beck hipped and said, There goes the Man up the Old Change. The Prisoner then mended his Pace. We pursued, and Mr. Tireman and I collered him; Beck was then a little behind us, and no body else was near us. When Beck came up, I did not indeed see the Prisoner drop the Watch, but I saw his Hand under his Coat, and presently Beck stoop'd and took the Watch up from between the Prisoner's Legs. and said, Here's your Watch, I had like to have taken it before it fell to the Ground.</p>
<p>Prisoner. There was a hundred Mob about us.</p>
<p>Mr. Dawson. There was no body, before the Watch was drop'd, but Mr. Tireman and I, and Beck and the Prisoner; but presently afterwards the People gathered about us. We carry'd the Prisoner into the Star Passage, where 2 or 3 Fellows would have rescued him; but a Gentleman drew his Sword and made 'em keep off.</p>
<p>[Then Beck was called in again, for the Witnesses were examined apart.]</p>
<p>Court. Where did the other Man in the Cape Coat stand.</p>
<p>Beck. At my Right Hand, the same Side as the Watch fell.</p>
<p>Court. Who else did you see there when the Watch was dropt?</p>
<p>Beck. There was a Mob of 20 People about us, and they were going to seize him.</p>

<p>Beck. No.</p>
<p>Court. Where was Mr. Dawson then?</p>
<p>Beck. I don't remember that I saw him till we came into the Star Alehouse, nor that I saw him before the Justice.</p>
<p>Mr. Dawson. I had hold of the Prisoner. There was no Man in a Cape Coat but the Prisoner, and I was with him before the Justice.</p>
<p>Mr. Tireman. Mr. Dawson was with me when I lost my Watch, when we took the Prisoner, when we were at the Ale-house, and before the Justice. There was no Man in a Cape Coat but the Prisoner, nor any body near us when the Watch was dropt.</p>
