He told me they were his Mills, with which he could open any Door in England - This with the Claw at the End of it is to wrench with, and this with the Round Hole is to put over the Head of a Bolt to force it out. Next Morning he desired to be made an Evidence. I asked him how many Accomplices he had. Why, says he.

However, I trea ed them with a Tiff of Punch, and after that, with another, and then they went away, and then I and my Landlady (the Prisoner) had another Tiff. I had been drinking before with a Captain on board a Ship, of which I was part Owner. - And so I fell a Sleep - When I waked I asked what was to Pay. The Prisoner said I had nothing to Pay, and that was true enough - for she had left me nothing in my Pocket ( except three Pence ) as I found when I came home. So I went to her next Day, and asked her if she knew the two Women that were in my Company over Night. No, says She, but they were merry free Girls, and you gave them a Shilling a Piece, and went out with them. I told her, I mist some Gold and a Gilt Metal Watch, and an old fashion'd Tweezer Case. She said she would endeavour to help me to 'em again So we had a Tiff of Punch, and we agreed to Advertise the Watch and Tweezer-Case, to be left at her House, with a Reward of a Guinea for the Watch, and a Crown for the Tweezer-Case. I Advertis'd accordingly, and in two or three Days went to the Prisoner's House again. And she told me a Woman had been there with the Watch, but would not leave it because I had not left the Money. Why Madam, Says I you might have laid the Money down for me, when you would have had the Goods for your Security. But however, there's a Guinea for the Watch, and a Crown for the Tweezer Case. So I left the Money and came again next Day, and had another Tiff of Punch, and then she produced the Watch. But where's the Case Madam? - What Case! is not the Watch in the Case? - Aye but the Tweezer-Case, Madam - Lord Sir, I know nothing of the Tweezer-Case - Why Madam did not I leave a Guinea for the Watch and a Crown for the Tweezer-Case? I swear Sir I thought you had meant the Watch Case, for I never read the Advertisement; but D - the Bitch, I know where she lives, and she shall never sting me so, for I'll make her bring the Case. So we parted, and when I came the next time, she told me, truly the Case was Pawn'd for a Crown, and she must have a Crown to redeem it. Why Madam this is a sort of a Bite upon me, did not I give ye a Crown for the Case! - Aye, but Sir I paid that for the Watch-Case. Nay Madam if that's the Case I am as far off as ever, tho' it has cost me three times more to get this Case than ever the Case was Worth. And with that I went away and resolv'd to go no more after it, for I thought with myself I might chance this Woman to Eternity, about my Case, and all to no purpose. However, about two Months afterwards I received 100 l. at the Bank, and paid away 75 l. of it. And going home about twelve at Night with the rest of my Money in my Pocket, and seeing the Prisoner's door open and a Woman in the Window, a Whim came into my Head to call once more for this Case, And so I goes in, and there was Madam mighty glad to see me, and wondring what was become of me, and why I did not call for my Case, Well, have ye got it
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173512100004"/> now? - Aye, Sir, but shall we not drink first - With all my Heart, let's have a Tiff of punch. So the Punch was brought, and then she bid her Maid fetch the Case, but the Maid told her it was too late. Upon this I gave Madam half a Guinea to Change. I can't change it says she, but shan't we have t'other Tiff. I answer'd No she replied, yes but we will, and I'll join with ye. I was not forward to join with her, but, she brought in another Tiff. I tasted it and told her it was to strong, for it was almost all Brandy. She said she loved it so, for if it was not Stiff it would give her the Cholic. Then I ask'd her for my Change, and she said she'd fetch it; but she stay'd so long that I fell asleep, and when I waked I found her leaning over my Chair with her Hand in my Pocket I ask'd her what she meant by that? She pulled her hand away with my Gold in it and said, Here is a fine parcel of Money to carry along the streets at this time of Night. Do ye think I'll let you go out of my House with so much Gold about ye? - No - if you should fall into ill Company and lose it, you'll think you have lost it here, and then I must bear the blame, and therefore I'll take Care of it till you come again. But Madam, says I, is that a Reason for Picking my Pocket? Why Dovee, says she, do you think now that I would rob you of this Money? No, it shall be as safe as if you had it at home. I'll assure you I keep as honest a House as any in London. - One Night a Gentleman went up stairs with a Girl, and left his Gold Watch upon the Bed. I found it after he was gone, and gave him it the next time he came, and so I did by another Gentleman that left his Pocket Book with a 100 l. Bank Note in it. - Madam I'll have my Money says I, before I go, D - ye but ye shan't says she, and if you stay much longer I'll have your Watch too. - But by good luck I had left my Watch at Home. I continued telling her I would not go without my Money, she threatned to fetch them that should silence me, and so she went away and I expected some Mischief for she had told me before that she kept a Soldier to assist her when People would not conform to the Rules of the House. But in a little time she came in again by herself, and said, What, han't you made an end of your Punch yet? get you out of my House? And so she dragg'd me to the Door, and tossed my Hat and Cane after me. I was so disabled with Drinking that I could not defend my self; I made shift to get Home, but being very sick I lay a Bed all that Day. The next Day I went to her House again to enquire after my Money, and then she said I had not been within her Doors that Night. - My Tweezer-Case was sent to me after she was committed to Newgate.</p>
<p>Mr. Parrot. The Prosecutor told me he had got the Slut in Newgate. I went to see her there; she said she was afraid this unhappy Affair with him would be the Ruin of her. That she had sent one to offer him all his Money to make it up; and had likewise sent to a Man that keeps a little Baudy-Ken, and sells Ale in an Alley in Fleet-street, to tell him that if he did not return the Tweeser Case to the Prosecutor, she should be obliged to discover all.</p>

I went home with him, and at parting he said, he did not know but he might be one thousand Pound the worse for that Night's Work.</p>
<p>Q. Was he drunk?</p>
<p>Hill. I leave the honourable Court to judge of that.</p>
<p>Q. What sort of a House does the Prisoner keep?</p>
<p>Hill. I cannot say as to that, for I watch without Doors and not within - I do not know of any Disturbances - in this way - once indeed the Constable was called, about a Trifling Affair of a Boy's losing two Guineas.</p>
<p>Q. What Reputation has the House?</p>
<p>Hill It is very hard for a poor Watchman to give a Character of a House-keeper.</p>

So they took me up one pair of Stairs, and ordered a Bowl of Punch, and a Fire to be made. I grew uneasy, and was for coming away. for I did not much like them; but they shut the Door, and kept me with them an Hour longer than I would have been if I could have helped it. I had no disorderly Dealings with them, though they did what they could to bring me to it, for they took up their Coverings, and shewed me what Ware they had, and then they would needs examine mine - When the Punch was out, they called for Drams, we drank three Quarterns of Brandy, and then I paid the Reckoning. I had Silver in my Pocket, and Gold in my Fob. As I was going down Stairs, they knocked out the Candle, and the Landlady went out with me pretending to shew me the way to my Quarters. We had not gone one hundred Yards before I mist five Guineas, and a Moidore out of my Fob. Landlady, says I, what sort of People do you keep in your House? I have lost my Money; sure you have not, says she, but if it is so I will go back and see you righted. But instead of going back, she took me down a contrary way to lose me, when a Man hearing me complain

And with that she run away, but tumbled down, near her own House, and so we took her. Upon which the two Prisoners came out and swore and called us all to Naught. We went to call the Watch, and so the three Women all run away. When we had got the Watch, we went to the House again, and took the Maid and another disorderly Creature, who said she was a Whore, but no Thief, and she would go with us to find them. We found

D - ye, Sir, says he, more Money. or I will shoot you through the
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173512100008"/> Head. I offered him some Copper, but he swore it was Silver that he wanted and would have. I told him there was all, and he was welcome to search me if he pleased. Then he demanded what Money the other Gentleman had got. That Gentleman's a Lady, Sir, says I; for on the side she sat it was so dark, the Window being drawn up, that he could not by light distinguish the Sex. His Companion then went and drew that Window down, and robbed the Lady, that being done, towards Covent Garden, the Prisoner went, and we drove on.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Was it dark?</p>
<p>Mr. Bardin. Indeed it was not Moon-light: But opposite to us there was a Lamp, by which I clearly saw the Prisoners Face. A Face, I well remembred I had seen a hundred times before, but in what place I could not recollect - When I came home, I met with Mr. Taylor, told him how, and where I had been robbed, and then described the Prisoner's Face, and Voice, and Dress exactly. Taylor, next Day went to the Golden Lyon in Russel street. Thence to the Theatre in Drury-lane, he sent for me. I went; and there immediately the Prisoner I singled out, and seized him by the Shoulder, Sir, you're the very Man that robbed me! I, Sir? Yes, you Sir! Then a Constable was called, but he was so drunk, he could not carry himself, much less the Prisoner: So we called another. In a little time the Prisoner was conveyed to Justice Mitford, and by him examined. Nothing would he confess, but only said, he had been a

<p>Mr. Taylor. On Monday Night, I was at the Golden Lyon in Russel-street Covent-Garden, and lost Four Guineas at the Bar. I went away and returned in half an Hour, and took the Money again. The Prisoner and another Person were then there, and saw me receive it. I observed that they kept an Eye on me, which made me suspect them; It was then about Ten a Clock, I went over to the Kings Arms, and they followed and staid till near twelve. Next Day the Prosecutor told me that he had been rob'd and describ'd one of the Men. On Wednesday I went again to the Lyon, and saw the same two Persons. Mr. Ellis (Sir

In two or three Days after they came, my Wife, and Maid, told me they miss Victuals out of the Closet, and watching to see how it went, saw the Deceased come out of the Closet. I ordered the Cupboard Door to be locked, and then she came to them, and asked for Victuals, and said she was almost starved. I bid my Wife give her some Bread and Cheese, or Butter - It was five or six Weeks after this, the Deceased complained she had had no Victuals for two Days, but a Bit of Liver. I willing to examine into the Matter, peeped through a Slit in the Partition, and saw the Prisoner and Miss Dony [Dorothy] sitting at Dinner, and Miss Charlotte, and the Deceased standing by them, trembling. The Prisoner gave the Deceased a Bit of Bread, and about half an Ounce of Meat. I looked another time when they had pickled Pork for Dinner, and after the Pork was taken away, the Deceased had a Bit of cold Liver, as big as my two Fingers. When her Mother gave her Victuals, she commonly used to eat it cautiously; but eating this Liver more eagerly, her Mother knocked her on the Shoulder, and said, Hussy! how you cram it in?</p>
<p>Q. Did you ever expostulate with the Prisoner for using her Child thus?</p>
<p>Falkner. I did speak to her about it once; and she told me I was a lying Scoundrel. I did not expect such an Answer, for excepting in this Case, she was as civil a Woman as ever came into a House - The Deceased died on the seventh of November. There was no Apothecary to attend her, nor was any of our Family called to see her, nor do I know that any other Person was - Her Mother had a Fire in the Parlor, but the Deceased was kept in a back Room, where there was no Fire, and where she lay upon a Bed without a Bedstead, and she has been locked in for two or three Days together.</p>
<p>Q. Was not this in the Summer?</p>
<p>Falkner It was between April and November.</p>
<p>Q. Was there no Carpet, or Matt under the Bed?</p>
<p>Falkner I don't know.</p>
<p>Q. Did not Charlotte lye in the same Bed?</p>
<p>Falkner. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. And was not she used in the same manner?</p>
<p>Falkner. She could help her self, because she used to draw the Beer, and lay the Cloth - The Deceased told me she never had any Beer, but only Water - When she first came she looked something better than when she died, though from the first she was vastly thin, and emaciated: but when she was dead she looked like an Anatomy, as if she had nothing but Skin drawn over her Bones - I looked another time when she stood at the Table, and she had only a piece of cold Cabbage given her.</p>
<p>Q. But might not she have had Meat given her, before or after you looked?</p>
<p>Falkner. The Mother, and Miss Doney dined first, before I saw them give her any thing - We have a Charcoal dust Tub that stood by her Garret Door, and under this Tub my Maid used to hide Victuals for her - One Day a Roll as hard as Iron was thrown over from the Roll's Buildings into my Yard. I ordered my Maid to butter it, and put it under the Dust Tub; she did. I saw the Girl take it out, and eat it greedily.</p>
<p>Q. Did the Children work?</p>
<p>Falkner. Doney work'd with her Needle, but Charlotte did most of the House-work.</p>
<p>Q You say the Deceased was locked up in the back Room? Did not she (the Week before her death) go out with Charlotte to see my Lord Mayor's Shew.</p>
<p>Falkner Yes; they went out between nine and ten in the Morning, but I don't know what time they came home.</p>
<p>Q. Was not the Deceased walking about the House the Day before her death?</p>
<p>Falkner. My Journey-man told me she came down Stairs dangling her Arms, as if they were hung on with Wires.</p>

<p>A. Falkner. She used to cram it in her Pocket -</p>
<p>Q. And would she have done so if she had been ready to starve.</p>
<p>A. Falkner. I have peeped through the Crevice, and seen the Prisoner give the Deceased Beef - and Pork - and Cabbage. But I think not sufficient.</p>
<p>Q Do you know any thing of her being locked up?</p>
<p>A. Falkner. The Mother, and Miss Dony used to go to Market, and when the Basket Woman came with the Meat, Miss Charlotte used to lock the Door while she came down to the Woman.</p>
<p>Q. Who is at the Expence of this Prosecution?</p>
<p>A. Falkner. The Parish, I think.</p>
<p>Q. Who applied to the Parish?</p>
<p>A. Falkuer. I do not know - I went out on Friday Morning, and when I came home, my Girl, said, she believed Miss Nanny was a dying. Mrs. Funnel who likewise lodges in my House, went and knocked at the Prisoner's Door, and said, Miss, How do you do? Answer, was made, she is dead! Mrs. Funnel, clapt her Hands, and said, O ye wicked Devils! are ye not ashamed to starve the Child to death? The Thing was soon noised about. and I went for the Searchers. When they came the Deceased was in bed, and they gave their Opinion, starved to death - The last Victuals I gave the Deceased, was two Months before she died. It was Bread and Cheese, and she pinned it up in her Petticoat for fear her Sister should take it from her - The Searchers said, the Bed was very clean, but not thick enough.</p>
<p>Q Did you ever complain to the Prisoner, of her keeping the Child without sufficient Food?</p>
<p>A. Falkner. Yes; I have said to her, Miss, looks very poorly, is she not well? and she answered, Yes, very well, she eats more than Doe. I said no more, for the Child had begged me not to tell her Mother, because her Mother would beat her, as she did sometimes. When she told me that, I said to her, Miss Nanny, you are a great Girl. and if your Mother beats ye, I wonder I never heard you cry. Madam, says she, my Mamma stuffs her Handkerchief in my Mouth when she eats me.</p>

I have peeped through the Crack, and seen her standing, when her Mother, and Doee were at dinner with boiled Pork, and Turneps, and saw them give her Turneps, but no Pork - I cannot say, but they might have given her Meat before I looked - I found a hard Roll in our Yard, and laid it under the Dust Tub for her, but did not see her eat it.

I told them I did not understand Cards, and had no mind to meddle with them. But however, they persuaded me to lay a Shilling upon the Game. I lost that and another, and then I won three Shillings, and at last I ventured fourteen Shillings out of a Guinea that I had in my Pocket. I grew very uneasy, and wanted to be going. I put my Hand in my Pocket to pay, and had got the Guinea between my Fingers, when the Prisoner husseld my my Hand, and said sit down, but presently I mist my Guinea The Prisoner, and his Companion jumpt up. The Landlady shut the Fore-door, and opened the Back Door to let them out. I went to follow them, but she stopt me, and said, I should pay the Reckoning before I went, or else I should leave my Goods. I accordingly left Goods to the value of thirty Shillings, and then pursued the Prisoner, and seized him in Nightingale Lane, and brought him back to the House, where when I came, they put out the Candles, and I fearing some mischief, shriek'd out. At last I got a Constable, who carried the Prisoner before the Justice. The Prisoner told him that I laid the Guinea in the other Man's Hand.</p>

She said then it was so late, that she should be locked out of her Lodging. I told her she should be welcome to lie in my Maid's Bed. So we went home together. I took her to the Maid's Bed. She asked me where I lay, and I shewed her; she said she liked that better, and so without any more to do, she undrest and went into it. I told her I would not lie out of my own Bed; she answered, I might do as I would, but for her part she would stay where she was. I found there was no remedy, and so I went to bed to her. When I awaked in the Morning, my Lady was gone, and had taken my Breeches with her, and all that was in them: she could not get out at the Yard Door, but by the help of a Ladder, she found the way over the Wall.

The Play was almost done and they were making Preparation for the Entertainment, when the Prisoner came in and sat down next to me. And high Words rose between him and the Deceas'd about a Stock-Wig for a disguise in the Entertainment, the Prisoner had play'd in this Wigg the Night before, and now the Deceas'd had got it. D - ye for a Rogue, says the Prisoner, What Business have you with my Wig! I am no more a Rogue than your Self, says the Deceas'd. Its a Stock Wig and I have as much right to it as you. Some of the Players coming in, they desired the deceas'd to fetch the Wigg and give it to the Prisoner. The deceas'd having found another Wig, he fetched the Wig in dispute, and gave it to the Prisoner, and said to him, Here is your Wig, I have got one that I like better. The Prisoner sitting by me, took the Wig, and begun to comb it out, and all seemed to be quiet for half a quarter of an Hour. But the Prisoner begun to grumble again, and said to the Deceased, G - D - ye for a black Guard scrub Rascal, How durst you have the Impudence to take this Wig? The Deceased answered, I am no more a Rascal than your self. Upon which the Prisoner started up out of his Chair, and having a Stick in his Hand, he gave a full Longe at the Deceased, and thrust the Stick into his left Eye, and pulling it back again he looked pale, turn'd on his Heel, and in a Passion, threw the Stick in the Fire. G - D - it! says he, and turning about again upon his Heel, he sat down. The Deceased clapt his Hand to his Eye, and said it was gone through his Head: He was going to sink, and they set him in a Chair. The Prisoner came to him, and leaning upon his left Arm, put his Hand to his Eye, Lord! cryed the Deceased, it is cut. No, says the Prisoner I feel the Ball roll under my Hand. Young Mr. Cibber came in, and immediately sent for Mr. Coldham the Surgeon.</p>

On the Fryday Night the Prisoner asked me to lend him a Comedy-Wig to play Sancho, in the Fop's Fortune. And the next Night, the Deceas'd came and asked me for the same Wig. I told him I had it not, and bid him go to the other Dresser - As I was afterwards waiting in the Hall for my Money, the Prisoner came in, and asked the Deceas'd for the Wig, the Deceas'd answered that he should not have it, and the Prisoner reply'd, you're an Impudent Rascal, and ought to be can'd for your Impudence. Mr. Mills, who was acting Juba, came and said. What's the matter with you? We can't play for the Noise you make, the Prisoner answer'd, This Rascal has got a Wig that belongs to me. Mr. Mills said to the Deceas'd, Hallam, don't be impertinent, but give him the Wig. Hallam still refused, upon which, the Prisoner said, G - D - ye, such little Rascals ought to be made an example of, and so turn'd out of the Room. I being drest in Shape, went up, and undrest. Mr. Woodford bid me bring down a Scimitar, which I did, but, when I came down I could not find him, and so I went into the Scene Room: The Deceased was then standing still between the Door and the Settle. The Prisoner was about three Yards from him, and starting up, he made a sudden Longe (whether stepping or running, I can't say) the Deceas'd clapt his Hand to his Eye, and made a Reel, as if he was throwing himself into the Settle - The Prisoner seem'd to relent.</p>
<p>Mr. Cole. The Deceased came first into the Scene-Room, and complain'd that the Prisoner had used him ill about a Comedy-Wig. The Prisoner soon followed, and said the Deceased had used him ill and impertinently, and he insisted upon having that Wig - They went out separately. The Deceased came in again. Mr. Fabian, the Author of a Farce to be acted that Night, Mr. Mills, and others, advised
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173512100015"/> the Deceas'd to see the Prisoner have the Wig, and Mr. Kitchin the Property Man promis'd to help him to a better. The Deceased fetch'd the Wig and gave it to the Prisoner, and then Mr. Kitchen gave another Wigg to the Deceased. The Deceased held out this Wig to shew it, and said he lik'd it better than the other, you saucy impertinent Rascal, says the Prisoner, I wonder how such a litle Scoundrel dared to take a Wig out of my Dressing-Room; the Deceased told him, he had it of the Dresser - D - ye you Dog, says the Prisoner, do ye prate? And rising up from the Settle, he push'd at the Deceased, who then stood stock still, between me and the Settle - I was so near him, that I was afraid my own Eye would have been hurt; he reel'd, and I catched him in my Arms.</p>

<p>Mr. Cole. Not to the Deceased.</p>
<p>Q. Has every one a particular Room to dress in?</p>

The Deceased reply'd, No more a Scoundrel than your self. Some other Words passing, the Prisoner rose up, and I think said, D - ye, you little Dog do ye prate, and then gave him the Blow. He clapt both his Hands to his Eye, and cry'd, O' Lord ! I believe my Eye is put out, and would have fal'n in the Fire, if Mr. Cole had not catch'd him. When he was set down, I asked him how he did; Lord! said he, I believe my Eye-ball is shev'd to the other side of my Head.

I plaid Sancho the Night before, and the Wig I then used was proper for the New Play, and absolutely necessary for my Character; the whole force of the Poet's Wit depending on the lean meagre Looks of one that wanted Food. This Wig therefore being so fit for my purpose, and hearing that the Deceased had got it, I said to him, You have got the Wig I plaid in last Night, and it fits my Part this Night - I have as much right to it as you have, says he. I told him I desired it as a Favour: he said, I should not have it. You are a Scoundrel, says I, to deny me, when I only ask that as a Favour, which is my right. I am no more a Scoundrel than your self, says he, and, and I went to the Prompter's Door to see for Mr. Cibber. Mean while the Deceased went into the Scene Room, and said, that I had used him like a Pick-pocket - The Author persuaded him to let me have the Wig, and the Property-Man brought him another Wig. He threw the first Wig at me. I asked him why he could not as well have done that before. He answered, because you used me like a Pick-pocket. This provoked me, and rising up, I said, D - ye for a Puppy, get out. His Left-side was then towards me, but he turned about unluckily, and the Stick went into his Eye. Good God! says I, What have I done! and threw the Stick in the Chimney. He sat down, and said to Mr. Arne's Son (who was drest in Women's Cloaths) whip up your Coats ye little Bitch and Urine in my Eye; but he could not, and so I did. I begged them to take the Deceased to the Bagnio, but Mrs. Moore said, she had a Room where he should be taken care of. I had then no thought that it would prove his End, but feared that his Eye was in Danger. But next Morning I saw Mr. Turbut, who advised me to keep out of the way, or I should be sent to Jail - I begged him to get the Assistance of a Physician, and gave him a Guinea, which was all the Money I had - From the Beginning of the Quarrel to the end, it was but ten Minutes, and there was no Intermission.</p>

Upon which, in a merry way, it was put to the Question, which of them should have it, and it was agreed that the Prisoner should. Mr. Kitchen came in, and said, Here is another Wig. The Deceased then tost the former Wig to the Prisoner, who said to him, why could not you have done this before. He answered, because you used me like a Pick-pocket - You lye, says the Prisoner; and you lye, says the Deceased - You are a Scoundrel, says one, and You are a Scouudrel, says another.

He took from me a Gold-Watch, two Keys, some foreign Silver and Gold Coin, and one Shilling and six Pence in Money, one Window of the Coach was drawn up (I think it was Canvas) so that I could not see if any Body was on that side. Maccray attacked me on the other-side between the Coach and Hedge, at his going off he bid the Coachman drive slow. When he was gone, I got out of the Coach, and saw three, four or five Men on Horse-back in the Road, I can't exactly say at what distance they were but I believe one might be about fifty Yards of, another a hundred, another two Hundred, and another three Hundred. I held up both my Hands thus to alarm them. They did not seem to regard me. but rode on towards London, which was contrary to the way which Maccray went. I met with some Persons on Foot, and told them I had been robb'd, I described the Man and Horse, and desired them to pursue him.</p>
<p>Wreathock. When Maccray was on his Trial for this Robbery, did you then mention that you saw any other Persons on the Road.</p>
<p>Dr. Lancaster. No, nor did I suspect that he had any Companions.</p>
<p>Campbell. Did your Reverence know the Faces of any of those People?</p>
<p>Dr. Lancaster. No, not one of them.</p>

<p>Dr. Lancaster. Finding Brown in a very weak Condition, I allow'd him Meat and Drink for his Subsistence, but no more than was absolutely necessary. I consulted some Lawyers, and looked into Law-Books myself on this Occasion. Brown's Confession was made before Col Deveil, before I knew any thing of it, and the Colonel advised me to go and see him. I said I had been so ill treated, that my Life was in danger, and I had often fled for it. However, I went, and I laid before Brown in the strongest light I was able, the danger of Perjury both here and hereafter He told me among other things, that Wreathock offered him One Hundred Guineas to kill me.</p>
<p>Wreathock. Did you ever see me before this Day?</p>
<p>Dr. Lancaster. No.</p>
<p>Wreathock, Did you never say, you believed none of us were ever guilty of Robbing on the Highway?</p>
<p>Dr. Lancaster. No.</p>
<p>Wreathock. Did you not jump out of the Coach immediately and give a Gardners Boy a Crown to pursue Maccray only.</p>
<p>Dr. Lancaster. I did promise him something to drink, he told me, that he saw the Man rob me, but there was not a Word said, as to what number of Men there were upon the Road.</p>
<p>Wreathock. Did not you and the Boy pursue Maccray to the Turnpike. - This I do to strengthen the Boys Evidence. -</p>
