On the 27th of September the Prisoner came into my House, and said, we need not thank her for her Custom, for the Rain had sent her there; she went into the Kitchen, and called for a Pint of Beer, and afterwards asked if we could dress her a Pigeon, which we did; soon after she went away. She had not been gone three Minutes but I miss'd a Quart Silver Tankard, which stood on a Table Bedstead in the Place where she was sitting. She had laid her Cloak and Stick down by it, and I am positive that I saw it while she was there. The Prisoner had enquired the Way to Charing-Cross, and my Wife directed her to go
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174010150003"/> through the Temple; so I pursued her up Glass-house-Alley, but could not overtake her: I then advertis'd it, and on the Monday Night following, Mr Gosling came and told me had bought it of such a Person as I had described. The next Morning after this, a Man that was in my Fore-Room, and saw the Prisoner come through the Kitchen with my Wife, stopped her and brought her to me.</p>

<p>Gladman. I saw it there after he was gone, and there was nobody else in the Room, but a young Woman, who is a Lodger, and was called down to the Prisoner, because she said she wanted a Servant.</p>

<p>Peter Rode. On the 16th of September, I went to Bed, and cross-barr'd the Door. I got up again at 3 o'clock, and found 2 Bundles pack'd up ready to be carried off: I call'd my Wife, and opened the Bundles; the Goods which were in them are mine. I directly called Mr. Shumaker; we looked about, and could find nobody; at last we went to the little House, and saw that the little Seat had been broken; we opened the Boards with a Pick-Axe, and found the Prisoner hid in the Vault; with much ado we got her out: she said she came with 2 Men and a Boy, that they opened the Window and put the Boy in, and gave him Directions to open the Door, and that our Men getting up at 3 o'clock, disturbed them.</p>

Mr Rode came that Morning to me, and said, he was near being robb'd; I went with him, and he shew'd me some Things; and a piece of Beef ty'd up with them, and several other Things: He told me the Vault had been broke open; we went down, and found the little Seat broke; I put my Head in, and could see nothing; but it smelt very strong. I went Home again, and between 8 and 9 Mr. Mason came to my House; I returned with him, and examined the Bundle again, which lay ready to be taken away. We got a Pick-Axe, opened the Vault, and saw the Prisoner stir, and then one would not take her out, and another would not; so I pull'd her out , and got her some Water. To bring her to herself , we gave her some Brandy, cut off her Cloaths , and put her into a Sack to clean her. She then owned, that there were 2 Men and a Boy, whom she knew not, with her, that they put the Boy in at the Window, and gave him Directions to open the Door to them.</p>
<p>Mr Mason. I went with Shumaker into the Kitchen, and saw these Things ty'd up ready to be gone; there was a piece of Beef in one Parcel, and Bread, Butter, Cheese, and all Manner of Things, and Candles with them. I went into the little House, and looked down with a candle, but saw nothing; I got a Pick-Axe, and opened it, and then we saw a Body; we pulled it out, and laid it on the gravel Walk; it seemed to be without Life or Motion; we got some pails of Water, and threw on it, when it moved, and we then perceived it to be a Woman: we got some Brandy for her, but we were obliged to force her Mouth open to make her take it, and then she came to herself. Some Neighbours came in, and cleaned her, and brought her to her Speech. The Prisoner had lived with me as a Servant about six Weeks, when I lived in this House. I left it in July, and have never spoken to her from that Time to this. She confessed before Justice Dennet, that 2 Men and a Boy were with her, that the Servants coming down at 3 o'clock surprized them, and the Men made out at the Door, and she went backwards; whence not being able to escape, she chose rather to perish in the Vault than be taken.</p>

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174010150009"/>The Counsel for the Prosecution set forth, that the Prisoner was a Member of that Set of Men, who go under the Denomination of Gamblers; the most dangerous Community to the Publick; that in the Schemes they lay to trap their Neighbours, Providence takes care they shall be ensnar'd themselves, and fall into that Pit which they dig for others; and that the Prisoner had now brought himself into the Commission of a Felony, &c. &c.</p>
<p>William Silver was called and sworn.</p>
<p>Couns. Go to the Bar, and see if you know that Man.</p>
<p>Silver. That is the Man: He met me by Milford-Lane, and gave me a Bobb on the Shoulder; I turn'd to see who it was, O, says he, I beg your Pardon. I thought it had been somebody else; but I can hardly believe my Eyes: Pray, What Countryman are you? I told him I was Berkshire; Why, says he, I came from High-Wicomb myself: Pray, Who do you know there? Said I, I know Mr.

I came (said I) from Walgrove ; Did you, said he? I want to send a Letter to a Person in your Parish, who had a Debt owing him from one in Town who paid him but 2 s. and 6 d. in the Pound, and is now in such Circumstances, that I believe I can get him the remainder; and if you will carry it, I will give you half a Pint of Wine; so we went into the Feathers-Tavern, he asked me if I would not smoak half a Pipe with him, I said, I did not care if I did; and as we were lighting our Pipes, he stooped down, and took up a Paper; he then said somebody had had very bad Luck, and wished the Owner had it; Don't carry it away, said I, but leave it at the Bar; then, said he, I'll pawn it for a Pint of Wine. In a little Time another Man came, and peeped in at the Door: the Prisoner asked him what he meant by coming into a private Room; I ask Pardon, said he, but I had the Misfortune to drop a Paper here just now; What is it, says the Prisoner? It is a Receipt for 200 l. Why, says the Prisoner, I was just going to mortgage it at the Bar for a Pint of Wine; the other Man immediately threw down a Shilling for it, and was going away, but the Prisoner stopped him, and said, he should take Part of the Wine; on his Persuasion he sat down. He said he had been at a Cock Match, that the Landlord of the House told him one particular Cock was better than such a one, and persuaded him to lay a Wager on it's Head, which he did, and lost; but the Landlord was his Friend, and laid down the Money for him. Before we had drank the Wine out, the Stranger turned himself about, and took a pack of Cards out of the Window, and he and the Prisoner sell to shewing Tricks with them; the other Man pulled a Card out of the middle, and said, Now I will tell you what that Card is before I see it, and I'll lay you a 100 l. that I tell any Card in the Pack; the Prisoner thereupon fetched 20 l. and told it down on the Table, and called me out, and desired me to lend him some Money to make his up; There will be no Damage, (said he) only tender it down, and keep it in your own Hand; for I may as well win the Fool's Money as another. I told him I had not above a Shilling in my Pocket; he asked me if I could not borrow some to lend him, I told him, No; but he over-persuaded me, and I went to one Davis's, where I got 25 l. 12 s. and 6 d. and to Mr Ford's, and had 30 l. Coming back he desired me to go in at Bishop's, at the Fleece below St Paul's, that we might tell the Money, and see how much was wanting to make it up 80 l. There were 10 l. wanting, which he said he could borrow of a Friend just by; he put his Money into my Bag with that which I had borrowed, and I put it on the Table by me. I happened to turn my Head, and in that Time he changed my Bag for another like it, and left me under pretence of going to get the Remainder of the Money. I waited some Time, and he not returning, I examined the Bag, and found in it only Half-a-crown's-worth of Halfpence, and some pieces of Lead.</p>
<p>Couns. Who was to have the Bag, before the Wager was laid?</p>
<p>Silver. I was to keep the Money, and had it in my possession till it was taken away. When he had put his Money into my Bag, I put it on the Table before me, and I am sure there was nobody else in the Room, but the Maid, who brought in a Pint of Beer.</p>
<p>Couns. What became of the Stranger?</p>
<p>Silver. We left him at the Feathers, while we went for the Money. I never saw him afterwards.</p>
<p>Couns. Was you to have any Part of this Wager?</p>
<p>Silver. No: The Wager was between the Prisoner and the Stranger, I had nothing at all to do with it.</p>
<p>Couns. On your Oath, Was your Money ever in the Prisoner's Custody?</p>
<p>Silver. Not, till it was taken away by him.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Q. How came you to borrow Money for a Person you knew nothing of? Suppose the Stranger had won, Who was to have had the Money?</p>
<p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174010150010"/>Silver . The Prisoner said it was impossible he should; but if it had happened otherwise, he ought to have made it good.</p>
<p>Couns. What was the Prisoner's Money, Gold or Silver?</p>
<p>Silver. There was some Gold, and some Silver, but I can't say what Pieces they were. His Money and mine were mixed, and told together.</p>
<p>The Counsel for the Prisoner, here made an Objection in Point of Law. That as the Money was borrowed to serve the Prisoner, and as the Prosecutor depended upon him for the Re-payment of it, this Fact could not be deem'd Felony.</p>
<p>In Answer to which it was urged, by the Counsel for the Prosecution; That this was one of the worst Sort of Felonies, and a Case in which the Publick are greatly concern'd: That this Money never having been lent to the Prisoner, nor was to have been entrusted in his custody, it must be deem'd a felonious taking. That a Person having taken a Ring off his Finger, at the Request of another, for him to see it, his going off with it had been adjudged Felony.</p>

I asked the Prisoner whether she had been in the Parlour, she said only to sweep and dust it, and that she saw the Bureau open. I told her, I had lost Money; but she said, she knew nothing of it, and persisted in a Denial of it, till the 20th, and then she own'd that she had taken the Money, and had filled the Bag with Stones, and thrown it down the Vault, where it was afterwards found by one of my Servants. After the Little-house had been search'd, and nothing but the Bag found, she confessed that there were 3 different Pieces of Gold; but she could not tell the Value of any of them but Guineas, and that she had hid it in a little Place I have in my House; but would not shew us whereabouts it was hid, though I had her up into the Place.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Q. Did not you threaten me, that you would go to a Conjurer about the Money?</p>

On the Sunday Evening following, being in the Kitchen, I asked the Prisoner about the Money, she told me that she first threw in the Bag, and afterwards dug a Hole and hid the Money.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Q. Why did not you charge the Women, who were in the Vault, with this Fact?</p>
<p>Carpenter. They had no Business in the Room, from whence the Money was taken.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Q. Were there not some odd Methods made use of to discover the Thief?</p>
<p>Carpenter. I did cover a Table with Soot, and made all the Maids come in, and lay their Hands on it, and told them, that the guilty Person would be black'd; but all their Hands were footed. I imagined that the Person that was guilty should pass by without touching the Table, for fear of being blacked. This was done without Mrs Hewitt's Knowledge.</p>

On Monday Morning, the Prisoner and another brought 3 Pumps to my House, in Thames-street, to sell; 2 Porters had them in Baskets on their Backs, they sent the Porters to the Alehouse, and then I suspected that they were stolen. I asked them how they came by them, and told them I must stop the Goods; they said they would fetch somebody to their character, and went away. I went immediately for a Constable, but he not being at home, I went to a Ware-house by the Water-side, and these Men, and 2 others with them, came to me there; but when they heard that I had been for a Constable, one of them escap'd, and the Prisoner we lock'd in and secur'd. When we were before the Alderman at Guildhall, the Prisoner had 2 Hours allowed him to send for his Friends, but to no purpose. There were the Dates of the Year on all of them, one was mark'd 1729, R.F. another 1738, and the other 1689, W.S.I. The Prisoner said, that his Brother had them from another Brother at Gravesend; but if they had been honestly come by, they would not have been brought in Baskets; besides the Person who own'd them, could not think of taking up a Pump which was put down in the Year 38.</p>

<p>John Stanborough. On Wednesday the 17th of September, I was at work in the Strand , my Wife came to bring my Dinner, and staid all the Afternoon with me. We went home at 7 o'clock in the Evening, and found the Door open : my Wife ran to the Drawers , and said John ! I have lost my Gown! I went all about, and could hear nothing of it, till a little Girl told me , that she had seen the Prisoner on the Stairs, and that she had given her a Halfpenny to go to her Lodging, and enquire, if her child had not been left there. I immediately went to her Lodging, and taxed her with it; she at first deny'd that she knew any thing of it; but afterwards she own'd that it was pawn'd to Mr Glover, in Sharp's Alley, for 3 s. 6 d. there I found it, and knew it to be mine.</p>

I went to see after her, and found her with a Full-pot of Beer before her; she said that

<p>Christopher Potter. The Prisoner came to my House, on the 27th of September, while I was gone out, and went up Stairs with my Men. When I came Home, I looked for this Box to lock up, but could not find it; I asked who had been there, they said no Soul had been there but the Prisoner. I immediately went to him, and desired him to let me have it, but he swore that he knew nothing of it; he came Home with me, and my Men would strip themselves to be searched, but the Prisoner refused to do so, and went away. I got a Constable , and took the Prisoner, and found part of the Box at Mr Davis's, a Silversmith, by Holbourn-Bridge . I am a Watch-Guilder, and live against St Andrew's Church ; the Prisoner lodged in a Cellar in Shoe-Lane .</p>
<p>Prisoner. There were 2 Men in the Garret besides me.</p>
<p>- Oxton . My Fellow Servant and I were at work in the Garret, when the Prisoner was there; we went down Stairs, and left him alone, standing against the place where the Box lay. My Fellow Servant went down first, I came down afterwards, and he was the last Person left above Stairs. As soon as we had got up Stairs again, my Master came up, and missed the Box. We were both gone down before the Prisoner, and the Box was in the Garret when we were there. The

I was on Sufferance in the Prisoner's Cellar: He came home one Saturday very drunk, Mr Potter came after him, and asked him, if he did not see a Box? he said, no, he knew nothing of it. He went home with Mr Potter, and came back again presently, and the next Morning I found the Bottom of a Box by the Prisoner's Bed side; when he saw it, he swore he thought it had been Brass, when he took it; he would have broken it to pieces, but his Sister pulled up some Stones by the Fire-side, and hid it. She afterwards gave me some Bits, and desired me to ask, whether they were Gold or Brass, and I am sure they were the same that she hid.</p>
<p>Mr Davis. I bought some Gold of a person, who said he lived in Shoe-Lane, and the next Morning Mr Potter's Man came to me, and said, his Master had lost a Gold Repeating Box. I knew this to be a piece of a Gold Box, so I gave it to Potter, and left Orders with my Wife, to send for him, if any Body should come with Gold. One Juniper came with it, and not the Prisoner; Mr Potter took him up, but he was afterwards discharged.</p>

<p>Jane Simpson. I went out of Town, and left my Things safe at my Lodging, and when I came home, I saw my Gown and Stays lying on my Trunk. I sent the Prisoner into my Room, to turn down the Bed, and she came out seemingly very much frighted, and said, that she had seen a Man go out at the Window. I went down Stairs, and told the People, that I believed I was robbed, and they said it was impossible any Man could get out there. I went up again, and looked into my Trunk, and missed other Things; so I had the Prisoner taken on Suspicion, and she confessed the taking them. She lodg'd in the same Room with me, and had been there Half a Year before I came.</p>
<p>Mr Brown, Constable. The Prisoner brought a Pair of Stays to me to pawn, on the 2d of October, and a Gown the 3d. Mrs Simpson came to my House and own'd them. I afterwards took the Prisoner, and she own'd that she had taken them, and had given the other Things to a Woman to sell for her.</p>
<p>Mrs Simpson. These Things were taken off my Trunk, and were the first I missed, after she had said there was a Man gone out of the Window.
