<p>Mr. Barker. On the 4th of Nov. I saw three Pieces of Goods which I believe to be mine, at Mr. Hook's a Mercer in St. Martins le-Grand ; I desired to know how he came by them, and he inform'd me he had them from Elliot, who had been his Neighbour. The next Morning I was sent for to the Baptist's-Head in Milk-street, where Elliot own'd that he bought the Goods of the Prisoner. The Prisoner had serv'd us as a Porter, and when he was taken, he confessed that he had robb'd us of all the Goods mention'd in the Indictment, and directed us to go to his House for the 20 Yards of Garlix, which we found accordingly.</p>
<p>Mr. Ravenhill. I saw three Pieces, a black Callimancoe, a brown Stuff, and a wash'd Garlix, at Mr. Hook's, which I knew to be mine. The Prisoner acknowledg'd the Fact, and told us where the Garlix might be found.</p>

Elliot brought a Piece of blue Mantua to my House, and as he was a Neighbour I bought it of him; he afterwards brought some Silver Ducape, and ask'd me 4 s. a Yard for it, I then had a Suspicion of it, for I knew that most of the Trade gave more, but I bought that likewise, and then sent for the Person who makes these Goods, and by his Means I found out the Prosecutors: I desir'd Elliot, that I might better fix the Thing, to bring me more Goods, he did so, and among them this Callimancoe, and the brown Stuff, which Mr. Barker believed to be his. When Elliot was asked about these Goods, he owned that he bought them of the Prisoner.</p>

He was a Neighbour, and bore a good Character, otherwise I should not have bought them. I can't tell what Business he follows, he keeps a sort of a Warehouse for Linnen I believe.</p>
<p>Mr. Sawbridge. I was at the Baptist's-Head with the Prosecutors, Hook and Elliot; the Prisoner was sent for, and acknowledg'd that he had sold these Goods to Elliot, and that he had robb'd his Master ever since 1739.

They took me off my Horse into a-Field, pick'd my Pocket of my Money, and put a Groat into my Bag again. I can't say which in particular took my Money, for they were all together. When they had robb'd me, I went a little Way on the Road to Richard Hall's, to get Assistance to take them, and when we came back, they were in the Field, and fir'd at me directly. The Prisoner attempted to get over a Hedge, and was taken with a cock'd Pistol in his Hand; he said he would yield, and that it was the first Fact, and that he should be hang'd for turning his Coat.</p>
<p>Prisoner. There were several Men in the Field, and I did not know but they might be Rogues; so I cock'd the Pistol in my own Defence.</p>
<p>Richard Hall. The Prosecutor told me he had been robb'd, so I charg'd a couple of Guns, and I and my Man went to the Field where this Robbery had been committed. I saw three Men in the Field, and the Prosecutor was immediately wounded in the Neck by one of them. The Prisoner was taken as he was getting over a Hedge with a Pistol cock'd in his Hand, his Coat turn'd, and his Wig in his Pocket. We found a Bayonet, and two Hats in the Place, one of which the Prisoner own'd to be his.</p>

<p>Mr. Lewis, Surgeon. I inspected the Body of the Deceased, and found two Wounds, one on the Forehead, and the other on the upper Part of the Back, which was Mortal, and the Cause of her Death. It had penetrated through the Vertebre, and broke the Ribs. These Shot I took out of the Body, but there are a great many left behind; and I apprehend the Pistol must be held quite close to the Body, to make such a Wound as this; for which I have two Reasons; the first is, if the Pistol had been at some Distance from the Body, the Shot would have seperated, whereas they all went in at one Orifice: My other Reason is, because the Lips of the Wound were actually burnt with the Powder. I believe the Pistol must likewise be held upwards, for the Wound penetrated obliquely downwards, and I think it could not be under his Arm, but even with this Posture.</p>
<p>Mr. Colebroke, Surgeon, confirm'd the above Deposition.</p>

I went from thence when I had din'd, and left the Pistols with her, I came again, and as we were going along Piccadilly in our Way Home, it Rained, so I took her to a Tavern, and we dry'd ourselves by the Fire; she then wanted a Coach, and she said, as I had no Money she knew where to sell the Pistols, so I got a Coach, and she directed the Coachman where to stop; and as I was pulling one out of the Bag, it snapp'd, I took the other out by the Head, and that went off; I was quite stupid, and don't remember any Thing afterwards.</p>

When I was down I burnt all the Tinder out, and could not get a Light, so I came up Stairs in a Hurry, because I was not willing to stay by myself in the Dark; when Coates found that I had not got a Candle, he gave me a Knock, so I got a Light of a Watchman at the End of the Street, and he and I went down into the Cellar,

After we had taken them, I wrap'd up the Pewter in my Apron, and Nash put them on his Head, the least Pottage Pot we put into a Bag, which we took out of the Cellar, and carried them and the rest of the Things to Laxton's Lodgings. When we came there, Laxton was a Bed, and the Landlord would not let us in; so Bess Matthews came down and open'd the Door with a Poker, we went up Stairs into Laxton's Room, and found Laxton asleep on the Bed; Walker was there at the same Time, the Prisoner Coates and I lay there all Night, and we desir'd Matthews to put the Goods up safe, so she took the Keys out of Laxton's Pocket, and lock'd the Pewter up in the Drawers, the Dishes we put between the Sacking and the Bed, while Laxton was asleep, and the other Things we put under the Drawers. The next Morning Nash came to us, the three Women Prisoners deliver'd the Goods to us, and we mov'd them by Degrees into Fleet-Lane, to one Wilson's , and Coates was to sell them, he got 4 s. earnest for the Pewter, and then he took the Tea Kettle and the Copper Pot, up higher in the Lane, where we used to sell, but they were stopp'd ; the largest Brass Pot, and the Warming Pot, Laxton and Walker sold for us, and they knew very well how we came by them; they brought us 6 s. for the large Pot, and 1 s. for the Warming Pot, and Coates brought us 2 s. for the Tobacco, all which we three equally divided.</p>

I am Constable of the Fleet Market, and hearing that a * Shop in the Market had been robb'd a I went to the Prisoner Laxton's Lodgings, to search for suspected Persons, I found a great many Goods in the Room, belonging to the Shop in the Market, and these Plates, Knives and Forks; the Evidence, Coates, Laxton, and Matthews were then there. I took Coates away, and he said he knew nothing of the Matter; I went back and took the Evidence, who was then a-bed, he told me of this House of Mr. Dixey's, and his Account of the Fact to me exactly agrees with what he has said now. I found a Pottage Pot, according to his Directions, in Water Lane, and the Prisoner Walker told me, where she had pawn'd the Funnel, the Box Iron and Heater, and said, they were brought in by the Prisoners. When Coates found that Lilliston was admitted an Evidence, he sent for me, and told me that he could make the most Discoveries, and would do it if he could be made an Evidence. This Chissel was brought to me by the Prisoner Laxton, before I carry'd Coates to the Lord-Mayor, and she said it was the same Chissel with which Coates broke the House.</p>

On the 18th of October, about seven o'Clock at Night, the Prisoner met me on the other Side of Temple-Bar, and asked me the Way to Leicester-Fields.

I was returning from Goodman's-Fields on the 18th of October, about 5 at Night, and just by St. Clement's Church, I heard a Boy scream out; and I saw the Prisoner run a-cross the Way, and drop this Bundle. I never lost Sight of him, but pursued and took him to the Shop where the Boy was; and before I got with him to the Door, the Boy said, if he is the same Man, he has a Ring on his Finger; he knew him to be the very Person; and when we were before the Justice, the Ring was found in his Pocket under some Half-pence. The Prisoner own'd the Ring to be his, and said that he found it. There was a Lamp not 3 yards from the Place where I saw him drop the Bundle.</p>

My House was broke open on the 17th of Sept and robb'd of the Things mention'd in the Indictment; my Doors were fast when I went to Bed, and when I was wak'd, I found 'em broke in a violent manner. The Lock on the inside was broke, and the Padlock taken off; I lost so many Things, that I was obliged to hire a Cart to bring them here last Sessions.</p>
<p>Valentine Harman. The Prisoner Legrose, one Wood, and two Men that were try'd last Sessions, brought some Cloaths to my House: I live in Rag-Fair and deal in Rabbits, and was going to the Brew-house for Grains, when they came in, with each his Arm full of Cloaths; it was the 17th, of Sept. between One and Two in the Morning. They laid their Bundles down on the Ground,
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174012040008"/> and said one to another: Come, let us go back for some more. I asked where they had them from ? and the Prisoner said, from a House in Rag-Fair; they then went down the Alley, and I call'd up Mr. Studder, and shut him into a Closet, because they should not see him. In a little Time they knock'd at the Door, with each another Arm full of Cloaths, which they threw down on the Floor to the rest; the Prisoner was for going for more, but Clack (who was executed) said, No, let us have some Victuals and Drink first. Aye, said the Prisoner, let us have three or four Shillings worth of Bread and Cheese. I catch'd hold of these Words, and said, I would fetch some. I gave them a Candle, and desired them to go up Stairs; they did so, and I immediately went to the Watch-House for an Officer; we came back and let Studder out of the Closet; and took Madder, Clack, and Wood; but the Prisoner was gone, pretending to fetch his Wife. We carried them to the Watch-House, and the Prisoner having told me there were as many more Cloaths at Carlow's, as at my House, we went there, and knock'd at the Door; the Prisoner Frame, came to the Door, and said, she could not find the Key; I look'd through the Key-hole, and saw the Prisoner Legrose go out at the Back Door, and then we were let in. I look'd down the Cellar Stairs, and saw a great many Cloaths which the Prosecutor own'd to be his; he came to us soon after we had secur'd those three Men.</p>

<p>Clack, again. When I was call'd out of Bed, I went to the House where that Gentlewoman who stands at the Bar lives, and we demanded Entrance; she kept us some time at the Door before she would let us in, and when we did get in, I saw a great many of my Cloaths on the Cellar-stairs.</p>
<p>Harman. Mrs. Carlow, was at that Time gone to France, and the Prisoner Frame , was left to take Care of the House.</p>
<p>Prisoner Frame. I desire the Prosecutor may be ask'd, whether he found any of his Cloaths in my Room?</p>
<p>Clack. I don't remember that I was in her Room.</p>
<p>Harman. I am positive it was the Prisoner Frame that kept us out, for I saw her thro' the Key-Hole, and the Yard-Door was open, but I can't say that she knew of the other Prisoner's going out.</p>
<p>Frame. I waited in the Room with his Witnesses all the last Sessions, and he said my Name was never mentioned; I drank Part of two full Pots of Beer with him.</p>
<p>Clack. I did mention her Name here several Times; and as to drinking with her, I don't know but I might drink a drop of Gin with her.</p>
<p>The Constable. I had Legrose's Commitment from Justice Fowke to bring him to Newgate, and in the Way thither I told him he had better have gone abroad; but he said, D - n it, it is too late now, but I wish I had the old Rogue (the Prosecutor) in my Place. He desired that I would speak for him, that he might be put in the same Place with his Accomplice Madder.</p>
<p>Legrose. I know nothing of what is alledged against me.</p>
<p>Frame. I was to have 2 s. a Week for looking after this Woman's House; I never saw this Man till I saw him in Prison .</p>
<p>The Revd Mr. Guthrie. The Prisoner Frame liv'd with me as a Servant two or three Years, and I never heard but that she was an honest Woman.</p>

I then called Mrs. Crosley, and she said, there were 38 Men in the House, and if they were let out they could not make them good; but Stark said, that Sturges was a Deserter, and they would take a Deserter any where. I desired the Woman to go for the Deceased, or some Officer, they staid a good while, and the Deceased came; I told him that they wanted Sturges away; he then drew his Hanger and went in, and said, Gentlemen, what do you do here? He put his Hanger up before he came into the Prisoner's Sight, and bid me put them out of Doors. They all went away except Ozell, and the Deceased kept striking them with his Cane all the Way down the Steps, and as he was turning about to come in again, with his Cane under his Arm, Stark drew his Bayonet, and stabb'd him under the left Pap. The Deceased immediately said he was killed; he was carry'd in Doors, and died in about 10 Hours. I pursued the Prisoner Stark, and took him about 200 Yards from the House, and when I came back with him, Ozell was standing by the Fire Side, and did not offer to do or say any Thing. When the Deceased came first into the Room, they were all standing with their Backs to the Fire, and he bid them go along, they mutter'd something, and he then can'd them out.</p>
<p>Stark. On Wednesday last I met with Champion, Ozell, and Price; they asked me to go and assist them to take a Deserter, I went with them, and thought it had been an Ale-House; Sturges came down and they seized him; I own I drew my Bayonet, but it was to keep the Deserter in the Room; we all sat down, and were very easy till the Deceased came in, and then he drew his Hanger, and struck me several Times; he came out of Doors and beat me, and I can't say but that I did take my Bayonet when his Blows came so fast, for I was afraid he would cleave me down.</p>

There were a great many Bags of Pepper in the Hold, and we came to an Agreement to take a little, so I opened the Hold Doors, and Greenwood and I went down; we took at that Time about 200 lb. Weight out of the Company's Bags; the Prisoner was at that Time keeping a Look-out on Deck, and he knew what we were about. We put the Pepper into two Bags, and got it into the Cabbin; and the Prisoner and Clowes haul'd it out on Deck. The next Night we took 130 lb. and put it into two Bags which we had of Mr. Ridout; and after we had got it on Deck, the Prisoner and Clowes handed it into the Boat to us. We carried it to Ridout's, and I saw one Bag started into his Cellar; it was carried in at his Back-Door between 9 and 10 at Night, and he paid us for it. The Prisoner did not go with us in the Boat, but came to us by Land; he was present at the paying of the Money, and receiv'd his share of it.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Q. Who had the Keys of the Cabbin?</p>
<p>Burges. They hung up always on Deck.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Q. If any of these Goods which are taken in should be lost, who is to stand to the Damage?</p>
<p>Burges. I can't tell, - the Master I suppose.</p>

About the latter End of September, in the Year 39, I was boarded on the Prisoner Oliver's Hoy; and about 8 or 9 in the Evening, Burges opened the Hold Doors, and fill'd 2 Bags of Pepper; the Prisoner and I haul'd them on Deck, and help'd to put them into the Boat . I did not go with them, for I and the Prisoner went by Land. When we came to Ridout's , they had weighed the Pepper, and were casting up what it came to; I think it was 32 l . I took 5 l. for mine, and my Partners Shoes , and I saw the Prisoner and Burges take theirs . I staid there to drink part of some Punch, and then went away. The Pepper was lock'd up in the Hold, and the Keys were given to the Company ; but I believe these were private Keys with which Burges opened the Doors.</p>

<p>Mr. Day. The Commander locks up the Hatches, and the Keys are sealed up and given generally to the Husband of the Ship. This is done to prevent any one from getting at the Cargo; and the Captain of the Ship sends up an Impression of the Seal which he intends to use.</p>

<p>Mr. Day. Yes, they have been very great Sufferers.</p>
<p>Mr. Foster. At the Arrival of the Ships, they lighten at Long-Reach or Erith; the Captain reports at the Custom House, and an Entry is made, that the whole Cargo may go out at once. It appears by the Register, that Greenwood and Clowes were at this Time on Board the Thomas and

I told him Pepper, he then asked me if he could Trade with me? I said I did not know till I saw what Officers would be put on Board us. He asked me how we got into the Hold? I told him we had Keys, but I had no Bags to put any Thing in; he said if I would go Home with him, he would give me Bags; I accordingly did, and he gave me two Bags, which we filled with the Company's Pepper . After we had filled them, we put them into the Boat, and carried them in at the Prisoner's Back Door, at Wapping New-Stairs, and he paid us for them.</p>
<p>Councel. What Time of Night was it that you carry'd the Pepper to his House?</p>
<p>Burges. It was between 9 and 10 at Night, and quite dark.</p>
<p>Councel. Can you tell the Quantity?</p>
<p>Burges. Each Bag contained 112 lb. but the Prisoner struck off some for Dirt and Tare.</p>
<p>Councel. Who took the Pepper from you out of the Boat?</p>
<p>Burges. Mr. Ridout himself was at the Door, he receiv'd it from us, and paid us 10 l. for it. After he had weigh'd it, he put the Pepper into a Tub, and gave me one of the Bags again to get some more; and the next Night we got 130 lb. Wt.</p>
<p>Councel. Who was this 10 l. paid to?</p>
<p>Burges. Clowes took his own and his Partner Greenwood's Shares ; I took mine, and Oliver his, we had 50 s. piece .</p>
<p>Councel. Was there any Bill of Parcels made?</p>
<p>Burges. No, I never saw any.</p>
<p>Councel. Did Ridout pay you the Money himself?</p>
<p>Burges. Yes, and he was in the Room when we divided it.</p>
<p>Prisoner Q. You say you told me, that you had the Keys of the Hold; where was it?</p>
<p>Burges. It was ashore on the Key; and there was no body but us two present; it was the same Night as we came up, and we took the Pepper directly.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Q. Who put the Pepper into the Bags?</p>
<p>Burges. Greenwood and I; the Master of the Vessel, and the other Officer haul'd it into the Cabbin.</p>
<p>Councel How much was allowed for Dirt and Tare?</p>
<p>Burges. Twelve Pounds.</p>
<p>Councel. Where was the Pepper weigh'd?</p>
<p>Burges. It was weigh'd in his Warehouse, where his great Scales hang.</p>
<p>Councel. Did any of his Servants assist him in weighing it?</p>
<p>Burges. No, there was none of the Family present but himself.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Q You speak of a Back-Door; is it not a common passage to carry in all Goods that come by Water?</p>
<p>Burges. I can't tell; I know they do carry in Goods there, and they call it a Back-Door.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Q Is it not a common place?</p>
<p>Burges . I never carry'd Goods in at any other Door.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Q. On your Oath, did you never declare to any body that this Pepper was run?</p>
<p>Burges. No, I never said so in my Life.</p>
<p>Councel. Was you in the Service of the Company then?</p>
<p>Burges. Yes, we had our Loading from one of their Ships, and this Pepper was taken out of our Hold at Botolph Wharf, where we lay sometimes 2 or 3 Days before any body come to touch our Goods.</p>

About 10 at Night, Burges open'd the Hold Doors, and fill'd 2 Bags; they were carried to Ridout's House . I did not see him fill the Bags; but there was no body but him and Greenwood below; they were put into the Boat, and I and Oliver walked down by Land to Ridout's, where I saw him pay 10 l. and I suppose on Account of the Pepper. The Money was equally divided amongst us , and the Prisoner said he should be very proud of such another Freight.</p>
<p>Councel. Who was present at that Time?</p>
<p>Clowes. There were Burges, Oliver, and myself.</p>
<p>Councel. Did you hear any Discourse about the Price?</p>
<p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174012040012"/>Clowes. No; the Pepper had been weigh'd, and carry'd away before I got there; but I saw the Prisoner pay the Money, and I believe he was present at the Division of it.</p>
<p>Councel. Were any of his Apprentices or Servants present?</p>
<p>Clowes. No, I saw none, - in my Opinion it seem'd to be a private Transaction.</p>

<p>Clowes. No, not that I saw.</p>
<p>Councel . Did you drink any Thing at the Prisoner's House?</p>
<p>Clowes. Yes, we had some Punch, but we paid for it ourselves.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Q. Did not you pretend that this Pepper was a Perquisite ?</p>
<p>Clowes. No, I never said so.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Q. You say that Burges put the Pepper into the Boat; who went with him?</p>
<p>Clowes. There was no body but Burges and Robinson in the Boat.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Q. Who paid for the Punch?</p>
<p>Clowes. Mr. Ridout sells Liquors; we treated him with the Punch, and paid for it among our selves.</p>
<p>Councel. How many Bags were open'd, to take out this Pepper?</p>
<p>Clowes. I can't tell; - I was walking on Deck with Oliver at that Time.</p>

<p>Councel. When you came to the Prisoner's House, who took the Pepper out of the Boat?</p>
<p>Robinson. Burges took it out of the Boat, and carried it in at the Back-door.</p>
<p>Councel. Did you go into the House with Burges?</p>
<p>Robinson. Yes; I went in, and the Prisoner gave me a Dram, and sent me about my Business, to take Care of the Boat.</p>
<p>Councel. I would ask you whether there were any People at Work on the Keys?</p>
<p>Robinson. No, when we carried the Pepper away, the Porters had done Work on the Keys.</p>

<p>The Warrant was read.</p>
<p>Mr. Gambier Sworn.</p>
<p>Councel. What was the Price of Pepper in Sept. Sale, 1739.</p>
<p>Mr. Gambier. In that Sale, the Company's Pepper sold from 10 d 78ths, to 11 d. farthing the Average was above 11. They allow the Buyer 6 l. 10 s. Discount, and likewise the home Consumption Duty, which is about 4 d. per lb. so that in the whole Bag it might come to a Groat less than 12 d. per lb.</p>
<p>Councel. What was it worth at that Time, every Duty paid?</p>
<p>Mr. Gambier . The nearest Computation that can be made, is 14 d. farthing, it was worth so much at that Time, Duty paid .</p>
<p>Councel. Suppose a Man had come to you, and offer'd you Pepper at 12 d. per lb. what should you have thought of it?</p>
<p>Mr. Gambier. If Pepper had been offer'd me at 13 d. per lb. I should not have thought it honestly come by.</p>
<p>Councel. Is there a large profit on this Pepper?</p>
<p>Mr. Gambier. In the Wholesale Way, there is not a half-penny per lb I believe all the Year round.</p>
<p>Councel. How much is generally allowed for the Tare of each Bag ?</p>
<p>Mr. Gambier. The Company allow 15 lb. for the Tare of a Bag of 112 lb. for a Bag of 100 lb. 12 lb. Tare is too much.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Q. Suppose the Pepper had been damaged, or put into foul Bags, what then?</p>
<p>Mr. Gambier. Damaged Pepper will not bear the price of good to be sure; but putting it out of one Bag into another will not hurt it, provided it does not come to any Wet, and the Pepper be found at first.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Q. Is there not a great deal of Waste and Dirt in this Pepper?</p>
<p>Mr. Gambier. In the last Sale, 5400 Bags of Pepper were sold, and out of those, there were 116 Bags of Dust; but these Bags of Dust do not
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174012040013"/> weigh so much as Bags of Pepper, although they are of the same Size</p>

<p>It was here urg'd on the Part of the Defendant, that Oliver in Point of Law could not be deem'd a Principal; but that in Order to have brought the Defendant to Trial, Burges and Robinson, who were principally concern'd in stealing these Goods, should first have been convicted, &c. &c.</p>
<p>Defence.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I had known Burges some Years, and believ'd him to be a very honest Man; I have bought China Bowls and Handkerchiefs of him, and when I bought this Pepper, I thought it might be run, but could not think it was stolen; if I had, I never should have given 1 s. per lb. for it. My Servants will make it appear, that I bought it full of Dust; they brought it to the fore part of the Shop to clean, and I sold it again for 13 d. Half-penny per lb.</p>
<p>- The Prisoner's Sister. I remember there was some Pepper brought in at the Back Door, about 8 or 9 at Night; the next Day it was carry'd into the publick Shop, and clean'd; - there were a vast many Stones and Dirt in it.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Q. Did it look like a private Transaction?</p>
<p>The Witness. No; I saw one Bag weigh'd, and it was emptied into some Casks in the Shop, which stood next the Street; - the Shop was not shut up, neither fore Door, nor back Door.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Q. Is not this Door a common Passage for Goods?</p>
<p>The Witness. Yes; all the Goods we ship off, or receive by Water come to this Door.</p>
<p>Councel. Did you see Burges bring these Bags?</p>
<p>The Witness. No: I can't say who brought them.</p>
<p>Councel. Does your Brother use to receive Goods in at this Door, at 9 o'Clock at Night?</p>
<p>The Witness. Yes; according to the Time of the Tide.</p>
<p>Councel. Do you know whose Bags those were which were brought to your House, - are they your Brother's?</p>
<p>The Witness. I can't say they are; I saw no Mark on them?</p>

I can't say what Time it was; but it was brought in at the back Door, - as publickly as other Goods, and the next Day it was carry'd into the Shop and clean'd for Sale.</p>
<p>Councel. Did you see it weigh'd?</p>
<p>Obermore. Yes, but I can't tell the Weight of it - I did not take much Notice of it.</p>
<p>Councel. Where was it weigh'd?</p>
<p>Obermore. In the same Place with all the large Goods.</p>
<p>Councel. There was some Punch carry'd in, where was that?</p>
<p>Obermore. It was in a Room joining to the publick Shop, and after the Money was paid.</p>
<p>Councel. How much Money was there paid?</p>
<p>Obermore. I can't tell how much, but I saw it paid down.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Q. Was this done in a private Manner?</p>
<p>Obermore. No, it seem'd to be as publick as all the rest of his Dealings.</p>
<p>Councel. Did you see Burges and Oliver there?</p>
<p>Obermore. Yes, but I can't remember that I saw Clowes.</p>
<p>Councel. Who divided the Money?</p>
<p>Obermore. I can't tell, - I was in and out, and did not take much Notice.</p>
<p>Councel. How many Persons partook of the Punch?</p>
<p>Obermore. I can't say, - I remember only Burges and Oliver.</p>
<p>Councel. Do you remember your Master's giving a Dram to any Body?</p>
<p>Obermore. The Lad came in, and I believe my Master did ask him to drink a Dram, and Oliver sent him about his Business.</p>
<p>Councel. Do you know how much your Master was to give for the Pepper?</p>
<p>Obermore. A Shilling a Pound, I believe.</p>
<p>Councel. I would ask you, whether there is not a fore Shop, a back Shop, and a Room between?</p>
<p>Obermore. Yes, there is a Door to keep the Air out, but it was wide open.</p>
<p>Councel. Where do the Casks stand which this Pepper was emptied into, in the fore Shop or the back Shop?</p>
<p>Obermore. In the fore Shop, just by the Door.</p>
<p>Councel. Where was it weigh'd?</p>
<p>Obermore. In the back Shop?</p>
<p>Prisoner's Q. Are there any other great Scales beside those in the back Shop?</p>
<p>Obermore. No, none that will weigh 100 wt. of Goods.</p>
<p>Councel. Were any of your Master's Servants present at the weighing of the Goods?</p>
<p>Obermore. No, he had no Apprentice, nor Journeyman at that Time; he used to serve in the Shop himself.</p>
<p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174012040014"/>The Prisoner's Sister again. I used to serve when my Brother was out , and used to sell this Pepper for 14 or 15 d. per lb. and by the Ounce for five Farthings, after it was clean'd .</p>
<p>Mr. Marlow. I bought Pepper of the Company in September was Twelve-months, from 10 d 78ths , to 11 d. 1 8th per lb. 6 and a half per Cent. Discount; which reduces the price to 10 d. Farthing; the Duty is near a Groat.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Q, Suppose you should buy Pepper unclean'd, would you give 1 s. per lb. for it?</p>
<p>Mr. Marlow. I never buy any unclean'd.</p>
<p>Councel. What would you say, it a Person brought you Pepper for 12 d per lb.</p>
<p>Mr. Marlow. It might not be worth the Money .</p>
<p>Councel. I speak Sir, of that Pepper in Sept. Sale, 39, what should you think if it was offer'd you for 1 s per lb.</p>
<p>Mr. Marlow. I would not have bought it at all, for I should have thought it had been run, or -</p>
<p>Councel. Or what?</p>
<p>Mr. Marlow. Or otherwise come by.</p>
<p>Councel. This Pepper was weigh'd; could the Prisoner be a Judge whether it was worth 15 d. or 12 d. per lb.</p>
<p>Mr. Marlow. Yes, I think so. I have known the Prisoner a great many Years; he always bore the Character of a fair Dealer, therefore I don't think he would buy Goods knowing them to be stolen.</p>
<p>Mr. Shippey. I have known the Prisoner 5 or 6 Years; and he always bore the Character of an honest fair Dealer.</p>

It was a dirty sort of a Room, and I did but just sit down, for I had not been there a Quarter of an Hour, but I perceiv'd Wood very busy about me; I put my Hand into my Pocket, and missed my Money. I am sure I had my Money when I went into the Room, for I felt it in my Pocket. When I found that I had lost my Money, I made a Noise, but Wood swore, she was a Woman of Credit, and had it not. I went away for that Night, and the next Morning, my Purse and part of my Money were brought me by a little Boy of Riley's. When they were before the Justice, they confessed that they had the Moidore, and the 3 l. 12 s. but said they knew nothing of the Guinea.</p>
