Fernley not regarding that, went up to the Bureau, and whether it was locked or not, I can't say, but he took out of it 2 Keys, with which he endeavoured to open the Glass Doors, but could not. Upon that he pulled out of his Pocket a Piece of Wire, and the Prisoner again said he would tell me of it, and accordingly went half down the Stain, pretending to come to me, hoping by that Mean to frighten Feruley and make him desist from his Design. When the Prisoner came up again he found the Glass Doors open, and saw Feruley take out of his Pocket a Nail with a wooden Handle with which he endeavoured to open the Chest, but could not; and at last looking about he found the Key of the Chest in a China Bason, but having bent the Pipe of the Lock he could not get the Key in 'till he had straiten'd it. He then opened the Chest, and the Prisoner again ran down Stairs, threatning to inform me, but returned, and then saw that Feruley had taken out of the Chest a Canvass-bag, and was telling the Money over on a green Table. The Prisoner desired him to desist, but he would not, and desired the Prisoner to partake of the Money, and threatned him hard on his Refusal. At last through many Persuasions he was prevailed upon to take 7 or 8 Thirty-six Shilling Pieces, one 6 s. and 9 d. and a 13 s. and 6 d. The Prisoner then desired to put the Money into the Bag again, fearing he should be discovered by a Medal which he had taken as Part of his Share, and therefore designed to put it into the Bag again, but instead of that, in his Hurry he put in a Brass Porte-Bells Pocket-piece . A few Minutes after this, perceiving his Mistake, he took out the Pocket-piece, and put the Medal into the Bag. The Prisoner likewise confessed, that this Money was to be lodged with one

On the 11th of March, I took the Prisoner with me to arrest a Person in Rag-Fair, but not having an Opportunity to do it, we drank a Pint of Beer at the King Harry the 8th, and then I dismissed him, and desired him to come to me the next Morning at 4 o'Clock. This was about 9 o'Clock at Night, and in about an Hour's Time I went Home, and found my Window wide open; there had been a Pane of Glass taken out to open it, and put in again.</p>
<p>Q. Did you leave any Person in your House when you went out?</p>
<p>Hambler. No, the Prisoner, I, and my Wife, all went out together. When I came Home and saw the House in this Condition, I desired my Wife not to go in, so I drew my Hanger and went in, and saw that a Box had been broke open, and the Goods mentioned in the Indictment taken out. The next Morning the Prisoner came to me at 6 o'Clock and told me he could not go with me; I then went about the Neighbourhood to enquire for disorderly Persons, and was informed by a Woman that a tall thin Man ran by with a Bundle and dropp'd a Cap which proved to be mine. Upon this I suspected the Prisoner, and got a Warrant to search for my Goods, and found one of my Shirts on the Prisoner's Bed, at the Elephant and Castle in Drury-Lane. I then apprehended him, and he carried me to another Alehouse and delivered me some more of my Things. After this I carried him before Justice Poulson, and imagining he had got my Stockings on his Legs, I said it they were mine they were darred in the Toe with light grey Worsted, and on their being pulled off they appeared to be mine.</p>

He gave some By-Word and immediately the Prisoner jumped out of the Ditch, and ran a Pistol against my Face. I had no sooner turned myself about, but he snapped his Pistol twice, and damn'd it because it missed Fire. I desired him not to use me ill, for what I had he was welcome to. He then took from me my Hat and Wig, a Rule, a Pair of Compasses, a Socket, and a Pencil. While he was searching me, the Fellow that cut Mr. Peacock came up to me, and on my holding up my Cane to defend myself, he cut it almost asunder with the same Instrument with which he wounded Peacock, and I fell into the Ditch.</p>

I attempted to get up a 2d Time, and I then received a Blow with something very heavy, which cut me to the Scull: Upon that I made a Sort of a Sweep with my Cane, and immediately it was snatched from me. I then endeavoured to draw my Sword, but my Right-hand was so disabled by warding off the Blows, that I could not draw it. I saw one or two Men run up the Court, and I got into Bow-Street and told some Chairmen of what had happened; they pursued them, and could not overtake

We went round Covent-Garden 'till we came to Earl's Court, and saw that Gentleman (Mr. Patten) at the end of the Court. The Prisoner made a blow at his Head, with a Bludgeon which he concealed under the Lining of his Coat, the Gentleman made a Defence with his Cane, and whether he fell by a Blow or a Slip, I can't tell, but the Prisoner snatched the Cane out of his Hand, and on the Gentleman's attempting to draw his Sword, he came to us who were standing on the other Side of the Way. After this, we all went to Lambert's, and on her telling us the Cane was not Gold, but only washed over, we sold it her for 7 s. and shared the Money between us.</p>

On the 11th of March last, about 8 o'Clock, I and my Maid were at Work in the Kitchen; she sat next the Window, and I next the Chimney. As we sat thus, somebody knocked at the Kitchen Door with their Knuckles; I desired the Maid to see who it was, and as soon as she had opened the Door, a Man asked her if one Mr. Briton did not live there; she answered, no, and was going to shut the Door, and immediately the Prisoner and another burst in. The Prisoner came violently on me, and said, D - n you, you old Dog, I will do your Business for you: upon that, he made no more ado, but he put both his Hands about my Throat, to throttle me: I struggled and cried out Murder! as much as I could, but no Body came to my Assistance. When he had throttled me so, he threw me across the Kitchen Grate, with my Head on the back of the Chimney, and flung himself on me and clapped both his Hands on my Mouth to stop my Breath. I kicked with my Feet as well as I could, and broke his Hold from my Mouth, and then I cried Murder twice. He then put his Hands on my Mouth again, so that I was almost suffocated; at the same Time swearing, if I made the least Noise, he would certainly cut my Throat across. In this Condition I continued 'till my Servant, who was at Work in the Yard, being alarmed at the Noise, came and took the Prisoner from me.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Ask him whether I did not lodge with him some Time ago; and whether he did not threaten to serve me with a Copy of a Writ for Money which I owed him?</p>
<p>French. He lodged about 7 Weeks with me, and owed me nine Shillings at that Time: I was very glad that I could get him out of my House, and never went after him in my Life for the Money.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Did not I propose to pay you some Money that Night?</p>
<p>French. No, he never mentioned a Word of Money.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Could you not have seen my Face if we had been out of Doors, without a Light?</p>
<p>French. No, I am certain I could not, for it was almost 8 o'Clock at Night, and it had been dark the best Part of an Hour.</p>
<p>Coun. May not a Person lift up the Latch of your outward Door, without your hearing it?</p>
<p>French. Yes, very easily.</p>

I was sitting at the Table with my Master on the 11th of March, and heard somebody rap at the Kitchen Door; I opened it a little Way, and saw 2 Men in the Passage: one of them asked for one Mr. Briton ; I told them he did not live in our House, and was going to shut the Door, but a Foot stopped it, and that Moment a Fellow pushed the Door open against me, and dragged me to the other Side of the Room, and threw me down. When I was on the Ground, he throttled me and squeezed my Throat all Manner of Ways, so that I was almost dead. The Prisoner flew on my Master, and threw him across the Grate, but the other Fellow used me in such a Manner that I was not able to make any farther Observations.</p>
<p>Prisoner. What Time was this?</p>
<p>Goodwin. It was very near 8 o'Clock.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Was it light?</p>
<p>Goodwin. No, it was so dark that I am sure I could not have distinguished one Person's Face from another's in the Street.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Did not I say that I came to pay her Master nine Shillings?</p>
<p>Goodwin. No, there was not a Word spoke about Money; but the other Man asked for Briton, and the Prisoner was then standing behind him.</p>
<p>Israel Mitchel. On the 11th of March, between 7 and 8 o'Clock, I was at Work in our Shop, which is in the Yard, and heard a Sort of a Noise, something like a rattling in a Man's Throat. I did not go down then, but hearing the same Noise about a Minute afterwards, I took this Stick and went into the Kitchen. When I came into the Passage,
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174104050010"/> I saw a Man stand with the Street Door in his Hand, and on going into the Kitchen, I saw the Maid standing in a frightful Posture, and my Master across the Grate, and the Prisoner before him with both his Hands on my Master's Throat.</p>
<p>Coun. Where was your Master then?</p>
<p>Mitchel. He was lying a cross the Fire, and the Prisoner was upon him with his Hands on my Masster's Throat. I stood still to observe what Motions the Prisoner made, but could observe no more than there is in this Stick Upon that I laid hold of his Collar, and fell to beating him as hard as my Hands would meet him; and he made out as hard as he could. I then pursued him and struck up his Heels and he fell down some Steps at the End of the Court, but before I could get up to him, he recovered himself and took to his Heels again, and was taken by a Man who was passing by.</p>
<p>Prisoner, Is it not possible for People to go in and out of your House without your hearing of them?</p>
<p>Mitchel. Yes.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I owed this Man nine Shillings when I left his House, and I not being able to pay him, he threatned to serve me with the Copy of a Writ, and that Night I went to his House to offer to pay him at 2 s. a Time. This Maid opened the Door, and as soon as the Prosecutor saw me, he flew into a violent Passion, and abused me grossly before I touched him.</p>

On the 1st of October the Prisoner offered me 2 Stove-Grates for Sale, but I suspecting them to be stolen, stopped the Grates, and him too. I took him to an Alehouse, and while I was talking with some People, he ran away, and I never saw him again 'till now. After this I took a Boat and went to Fulham to search the Prisoner's House, and found this Glass in a Chest of Drawers, and a Sconce-Glass under his Bed, but he was not at Home himself.</p>
<p>Mrs. Davis. This Glass is mine, and one of the three which I lost at that Time.</p>
<p>- Lacey. I was Constable of Fulham, and this Man desired me to search the Prisoner's House: Accordingly I did, and the first Thing I found was one Feather Bed under another, and then this Glass, a Window Curtain, and 10 or 15 Blankets; some of the Things were in one Place, some in another. After we had searched about some Time, we perceived a Sort of a Closet, and on demanding an Entrance into it, the Prisoner's Wife said, there was nothing but Corn in it; however, I took a Poker, threw the Door off the Hooks, and found 2 Bolsters , 10 Blankets, a Box of China, and 2 Feather Beds under the Corn.</p>
<p>Prisoner. He says he took a Poker to force the Door open, was it locked or bolted?</p>

My Daughter informed me that some Damage was done at Mrs. Davis's, upon that I went down the Garden and saw the Parlour Door open. I stepped in and cried Holla! who is in the House! But no Body answering, I went round the House and saw the Kitchen Doors open; a Window Case taken out of the Brick Work and thrown on the Ground, and the Casement lying by it. I then called my Neighbours, and we went in together, and saw that the House had been ranshackled very much. The Prisoner is a Neighbour of mine, he is a Jack-smith, and a very industrious Man as far as I know, for he never did me any Harm.</p>

<p>Brown. Some Neighbours give him a good Character, and some a bad one.</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174104050011"/>Mr. Miller.
