<p>Mascall. The Cooper's Servants go into the Warehouses to draw the Casks for Samples for Sale; and I do apprehend they might leave the Doors open, and that he might get in that Way, - they are very apt to leave the Doors open.

<p>Josias Taylor. On Tuesday the 16th of November. I had a pretty deal of Business to do; and towards the Evening I ordered one of my Servants to hang the Doors on. I desired him to get what he could ready on Tuesday Night, in order to be sent into the Country the next Morning. - The Doors were shut; there is a Sash-Window on each Side of the Door, and Grates before them, which were fastened to the House. - I had 120 Pound Weight of Chocolate brought from the Office, which had been sent there to be stamped. It was brought in on the Saturday; and the Monday before the Tuesday Night on which this happened, it was put in the Window to dry, because it is damp when it comes from the Office. - It lay about two Foot from the Window. My Man was in the Shop heading two or three Barrels, and I was in the Compting-House; I saw the Chocolate fall down, and did not know but it might be the heading of the Barrels that might have disturbed it. My Man presently went to the Door, then came and called me, and told me that I had been robbed. When I came, I found that there was 26 Pound of Chocolate taken away, and the Grate was likewise taken away, and thrown into the Street, which I did not find till about two Hours afterwards. There was a Coachman going into the Green-Dragon Inn, his Horses would not go along, which was occasioned by the Grate lying in the Street, which the Coachman took up and carried into the Inn-Yard. At last seeing a good many People looking at something, I went to see what it was, and found the Grate lying in the Inn-Yard. The Chocolate was sold to one

I saw the Prisoner at Mr Meckwold's Window, on the 24th of February, about Seven o'Clock in the Evening; he met a Woman and immediately turned about, and as soon as she was past, he jumped up to the Rail, took down the Blind of the Window and put his Head and Arms in at the Window; my Husband went down Stairs directly in order to catch him, and just as he was going out at the Door, the Prisoner jumped off the Rail and crossed to our Side of the Way, to our Door. - I am sure he is the Man that put his Head and Arms into Mr Meckwold's House.</p>

<p>Smart. The Blind is fastened with a little Bolt which shoots into the Frame of the Window.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure it was bolted at Seven o'Clock?</p>
<p>Smart. I am sure it was bolted at that Time - I am sure it was bolted all Day; I am very sensible the Prisoner opened it; my Lady and my Master went out, and I am sure neither of them went into the Parlour; I bolted it in the Morning, and I think I can safely say it was bolted all Day, because there was no Body to open it, unless I had unbolted it myself.</p>
<p>Q. to Mr. Meckwold. Was there any Thing lost or moved?</p>
<p>Mr Meckwold. I found a Tea-Chest moved out of its Place, but there was nothing taken away.</p>

<p>Goddard. The Sash and the Blind are different Things; the Blind is fixed, and the Sash may be pushed up, and the Blind remain fixed; the Blind is fastened with a Bolt, which is on the Top of the Blind, and goes into the Side of the Frame of the Window.</p>
<p>Q. The Question is, Whether, when he pushed the Sash up, the Blind must not fall down.</p>
<p>Goddard. It cannot fall by the lifting up of the Sash; but it stood safe against the Side of the Window.</p>
<p>Q. If the Blind had fell down, whether you must not have heard it?</p>
<p>Goddard. I believe we might, but it stood very safe by the Side of the Window.</p>
<p>Simmonds. He jump'd up on the Rail; he laid one Hand upon the Frame of the Window, and the other Hand was upon the Top of the Blind, then he too k the Blind down with his Hand and made a Reach, and lay over the Window as if he was going to see the Blind down upon the Ground

Then he said, Damn you, Sir, I had these from Dublin. Now I knew where the Flannels chiefly came from, and that there are very few which come from thence. When he was examined before my Lord-Mayor, he said he had them from one Brown, a Correspondent of his in Lancashirt, but my Lord threatening to commit him, he said, My Lord, if you will not commit me to Jail, I will tell you the Truth; then he said he had them at a Court in Threadneedle-street, of the Gentleman's Servant. - He owned he had them of my Servant, the other Prisoner; who, being sensible of his Guilt, confessed the Fact with Tears. He owned he had taken, at different Times, about eleven or twelve Pieces, which he had sold to this Brown; he said he sold them for 15 Shillings a Piece, two of them were worth 12 or 13 d. per Yard; and two of them about Eight-pence half-penny per Yard; the lowest priced Flannel we have is Eight-pence half-penny per Yard. The Prisoner had been my
<rs id="t17430413-17-deflabel109" type="occupation">Servant</rs> about five Years; he was a Sort of a Porter to carry out Goods for me.</p>
<p>Q. Did he never sell any Goods for you?</p>

The Gentleman went to the White-Lion Tavern in White-Chapel, and called for a Bottle of Wine; says Brown, Do you charge me with stealing these Goods? And Mr Staples said, If you did not steal them, you might have them of some Body that did. I said, as for my Part, I buy Goods of any Body that comes to my House; and you said your Man had sold several thousand Pounds worth of Goods for you.</p>

<p>James. Yes, he did, but there was no Mention made of any particular Parcel of Goods.</p>
<p>Q. Did not he say he had them out of Lancashire?</p>
<p>James. Yes, he said he had some, or one Piece out of Lancashire.</p>
<p>Q. Did he own he had them at Mr Staples's?</p>
<p>James. He said at last he had them at a Warehouse in Threadneedle-street. Q. Have these been all the while in your Custody?</p>
<p>Mr James produced the Flannels, and said they had not been all the while in his Custody, but believed them to be the Goods he bought of John Brown; and Mr Staples proved them to be his Goods.</p>

Piece, 2 Guineas, and 41 Shillings in Silver; I asked them, Whether that was all; they said, Yes, there is all: Said I, Mrs Bates says you have taken more; they said, there was no more: Said I, Be ingennous, do do not conceal any Thing, it will be the worse for you if you do: They said, there was no more Money; I asked for the Linnen, and they said it was given to a Woman to wash; I went to the Woman for it, and she delivered it; it was in a miserable nasty Pickle; it is not fit to be seen in Court; said I, You took it away clean, how came it in this Condition? They said, they had the Misfortune to let it fall in a Ditch; I asked them, how they came at the Money; Ellard said, she did not know how Cannon came by it; and that she brought it to her. I have known Ellard a great while, and did not think but that she had been very honest.</p>
<p>Q. Who gave you the Money?</p>
<p>Sanders. Ellard gave me the Money - I think they were fuddled.</p>
<p>Q. What was the Washerwoman they gave the Linnen to?</p>
<p>Sanders. I do not know her, - she is not here.</p>

I agreed to buy it of him; I did not know where to weigh it, so I went to a Founder's on Snow-Hill, a Mistress of mine, who I knew had Weights to weigh Silver; it was weighed there, and I gave him 10s. 6d. for it. It happened some Time afterwards that I wanted some Money, and I carried it to Mr Price, to borrow something upon it; and he said this Spoon is stole.

<p>Mr Price. On Wednesday the sixth of this Instant, Mr Gerrard brought this Spoon to me; I asked whose Spoon it was; he said it was his own; said I, here is a Crest upon it; Have you a Crest to your Family? I looked back to the Advertisements, and found an Advertisement of the 30th of March, of a Spoon being lost, with the Crest, a Catherine-Wheel and Cross. Said I, This Spoon is stole, but I would not give you any Trouble, as I believe you to be very honest, and have lived so long in the Parish. The Person to be applied to was one Mr Langton in Lombard-Street; when I carried him the Spoon, he laid me down 10 s. Sir, said I. Do you think I do this for the sake of the Reward? I will not deliver it till I see whether I can find out the Thief. Mr Fell came to me that Afternoon, and said he believed he had got Intelligence of the Man, and on Saturday Morning last he took him.</p>
<p>Prisoner. One Day coming up through Wapping, I happened to meet with two young Men, one of them is a Blacksmith, they made believe as if they had taken up a Spoon, I insisted upon seeing

<p>Prisoner. I do not know where to find them, they were Passengers in the Street: I was to have had some Things sent from Dorchester, and that was the Reason of my going up to Hide-Park-Corner.</p>
<p>It being intimated that he had lived in the Family, and therefore might know the Crest, which he said he did not, Honor Dilk was therefore called again.</p>
<p>Honor Dilk. The Prisoner lived 20 Months together in the Family, and it is a hard Case if he should not know the Coat of Arms.</p>

On a Friday Night, the latter End of January - I cannot tell the Day of the Month, I and Cropp and Anderson and Bradshaw, went out with an Intent to rob some Body, and going down Northern Falgate, Cropp saw Beaumont at his Door - he knew him. There's Beaumont, says Cropp, his Father has been dead about a Fortnight, and he has got a Watch, and if we can get that it will be a good Booty. Cropp said, He is drunk; and I believe he was a little in Liquor: Beaumont went out, and we followed him him up Shoreditch, and all the Way to Hoxton, and there we lost him; I suppose he went into some House; we waited some Time but could not see him; two or three Hours afterwards we met him by Chance, in Hog-Lane, and he was singing. D - n you, says Cropp, there's Beaumont again; and he gave me a Stick and bid me knock him down; and accordingly I did knock him down; I did not care to strike him any more for fear of killing him; Cropp took the Stick from me and gave him two or three Blows more, and then snatched off his Hat and Wig and run away with it.</p>
