Immediately Hunt came up, and clapp'd a Pistol to my Breast, and one of them said, D - n your Bl - d, you have a Watch, I know you have. They took it from me, likewise my Shoe and Knee Buckles, and swore, if I made the least Resistance they would murder me, for they had a set at every Corner of the Fields, and a third Person stood at a Distance. When they left me, I went to a Watchman and told him the Story, but he said he cou'd not help it On the Monday following I advertised a Reward of 5 Guineas for any Person to impeach his Accomplices, and one that makes it his Business to take these People, told me where I might go and see 10 or 20 of the same Sort.

About a Quarter after 11 they left me, and one of them return'd to me, and swore if I made any Noise they would knock my Brains out. It was with the greatest Difficulty that I kept my Head out of the Water; I bled all the Time like a Pig, and desir'd the Prisoner who took away my Gun, to put my Cap on my Head for I was almost Dead.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Was it not Dark when you was Attack'd in this Manner?</p>
<p>Butler. It was dark when they Men came first into the Field, but the Moon rose before they left me, and it was as light as Day. The Prisoner was close to me all the Time, and when I was on the Ground he kneeled down to me, and said, What a Fool you was to offer to shoot us.</p>
<p>Prisoner. What did I say when you asked me to put on your Cap.</p>
<p>Butler. You swore bitterly if I spoke another Word, you would knock my Brains out. I lost
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174102250007"/> my Hat, but I can't say he took it; they turned my Pockets the inside outward, but I had nothing4 but a Halfpennyworth of Tobacco, and they took it from me. I am positive the Prisoner was one of them, for he was close to me all the Time.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I never saw this Fellow before he came to the Barracks and took me.</p>
<p>Mr. Jay. I had an Information of some Soldiers at the Tower, and went with Butler to see them, but he would not swear to any of them. I had likewise an Information of some Men at the Savoy, and Butler pitch'd on the Prisoner as he stood Centry, and said, that was the Man that stood over him for 2 Hours, and took the Gun from him. Butler was so positive to the Prisoner, that he would have laid hold of him directly, but I went to inform the Serjeant of it, and before we returned, the Prisoner was gone off the Guard.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I am as innocent as the Child that is unborn</p>

<p>Gerrard Brooks. On Wednesday Night last, about ten o'Clock, I was coming from the Play, and had the Misfortune to meet the Prisoner in James-Street, Covent-Garden, and she prevail'd on me to go with her to the Rummer Tavern. We went up two Pair of Stairs, into a Room, in which was a Bed, where we staid the Drinking of 4 Pints of Wine: At last, I grew warm, and she desirous, and we went to Bed. I had not been in Bed ten Minutes, before I heard the gingling of a Purse, upon which, I suspected that she had pick'd my Pocket, for I had 19 Guineas, and a

Immediately I got up, and took the Candle, and light it by the Fire, and in that Time, she took an Opportunity to take out of the Purse 4 Guineas and the Sequin, which was worth about ten Shillings. I call'd for Assistance, and search'd the Bed, and we found the Purse with only 15 Guineas in it, between the Sheets and the Bed. I charg'd her with robbing me, but she said she knew nothing at all of it, upon which I sent for the Beadle, and 2 or 3 more, to search her; but before we went away, the Money was found in the Room.</p>
<p>Prisoner, Did he not make me a Present of the Money?</p>
<p>Brooks. No, on my Oath I did not.</p>

<p>Clark. I took it to be Mr. Tipper's Handwriting, otherwise I should not have paid the Prisoner.</p>

<p>Clark. Yes, the Day afterwards (New-Year's-Day) he brought another for 50 Guineas, and I paid it to him.</p>
<p>Councel. You keep New-Year's-Day as a Holiday; did he make no Excuse for coming then?</p>
<p>Clark. He said his Master was going out of Town, and desired it might be paid.</p>

<p>Witness. No, I believe not.

<p>Linney. No. none at all, no body spoke to him but the Deceased, for he bid us keep at a Distance. As soon as the Deceased was stabb'd, he cry'd out, I am killed, I am stabb'd! and the Prisoner attempted to get back to Mr. Fry's, but I follow'd him, and kick'd up his Heels.</p>

<p>Mr. Perkins, Surgeon. I did not attend the Deceased in his Life Time, but was present and opened the Body after he was dead. I observ'd a Wound on his Thigh, which penetrated 5 or 6 Inches downwards, and had passed the Crural Artery. There had been a counter opening made by the Surgeon who attended him, for the Discharge of Matter; I examined it, and on the opposite Side, I found a large Quantity of Matter, and a Mortification begun. I th en open'd the Abdomen, and on examining the Intestines, I found a large Quantity of Pus or Matter, in one of the Kidneys, and likewise in the Lobes of the Lungs; and on inspecting the Stomach, I found above half a Pint of Corruption ting'd with Blood.</p>
<p>Councel. Do you think that this Wound was the Occasion of his Death?</p>
<p>Mr. Perkins. I can't say it was the immediate Cause of his Death.</p>
<p>Councel. Is it your Opinion, that this Man would have died by any Disorder that was on him if he had not received this Wound?</p>
<p>Mr. Perkins. No, I believe he would not.</p>
<p>Mr. Price, Surgeon. I was sent by the Prisoner to take Care of the Deceased the Day after he received the Wound. It was about 3 Inches below the Groin in the middle of the Thigh, and </p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174102250014"/>
<note>[Pages missing in original.]</note> was almost closed up; I dilated it to promote a Discharge of Matter. The next Day the Wound had a good Aspect, but he was feverish, and troubled with a Looseness; and continued to till the 3d of this Month, and then I observ'd a Hardness about the Wound. The Fever and Looseness ( notwithstanding our Applications) increased daily more and more, to the Day of his Death, but the last Time I saw Mr. Kilpatrick dress the Wound, it was in as good a State of healing as possibly could be, and from that Time I never saw the Deceased any more.</p>
<p>Councel. In your Judgment did the receiving this Wound contribute to his Death?</p>
<p>Mr. Price. In the whole Course of this Wound, I did not observe any Symptoms which I can fairly say were the Occasion of his Death. He had the Looseness after we had remov'd all those Symptoms from the Wound.</p>
<p>Jury. We apprehend that the Deceased was of a bad Constitution, therefore do you not imagine, that so great an Effusion of Blood, might occasion his Death?</p>
<p>Mr. Price. A little Blood makes a great Shew, but I am very certain, no large Vessel was wounded, for the first Application we made was only a bit of Lint, about the bigness of a 6 d. and a Plaister.</p>
<p>Councel. Do you not imagine that the Loss of so much Blood occasioned the Loosness.</p>
<p>Mr. Price. No, I don't know but that it might prolong his Life, for in the Loosness the first Thing I could have done to relieve him, must have been to have taken Blood from him</p>
<p>William Kirk. I knew the Deceased very well, and saw him the Day before his Death; I looked on him before he received this Wound, to be as hearty and strong as any Man. He never made any Complaints, but went about his Business, and always had an exceeding good Appetite. I saw him after he was wounded, and likewise his Breeches, Shoes and Stockings, and I believe he had bled a Hat full.</p>

<p>Mr. Kingston. I have known the Prisoner 7 or 8 Years; he lives in Scotland Yard, but I never apprehended that he lived there for Shelter, for he always went abroad as other Gentlemen go.

I have known him ten Years, and did not apprehend that he was in any Fear of an Arrest: I have been to several Coffee-Houses with him, and he never seemed shy in the least, but always sat in the public Room frequently two Hours together. I always found him to be a good natur'd, humane, generous Man, and don't think he would draw his Sword on a Man without some Surprize.</p>
<p>Mr Trion. I have known Mr. V - from his Childhood. He always appear'd publickly without any Interruption; and I don't believe that he lived at Whitehall for Shelter. I always took him to be a very sweet Tempered Man.</p>
