I asked him, what Breadth he would have it, and he said about an Inch; then I took out a Box of Lace, and shewed him two Pieces, one of 14 s. per Yard, and the other Half a Guinea. He gave them to me again and said nothing, I took out another Box, and he put his Hand upon one of 13 s. and then he clapped his Hand upon another, and said, I suppose that is dearer. I told him it was 20 s. per Yard; he bid me Half a Guinea, for what I told him was 13 s. and took up his Hat and Cane, and said, you bad better take my Money, I will give you 11 s. which I could not take, and he went away. I missed the Piece of Lace directly, but I did not know at first but I might have put it into another Box; it happened to be stopped by Mr Paine the Pawnbroker, who was so kind as to bring it to me, and has kept it in his Custody ever since.

About an Hour and an half afterwards I missed the Piece of Lace that he stole out of the Box that he put his Hand into; and about three or four Days afterwards I missed five Pieces more, two of six Yards three Quarters, two of six Yards, and two that were but Remnants; then was I dubious, whether some of my Servants had not stole them: I went to Mr Paine's, and told him, I had lost several Pieces of Lace, and he was very ingenuous in shewing me what Laces he had; this is the Piece I had of Mr Paine, the other Piece that I lost then I never had - I am very positive this is my Lace, and that I missed this Piece of Lace the 29th of June: I believe the Lace went all at the same Time, for I never saw the Prisoner since - This is not the Piece that I missed at first - I did not shew this particular Piece of Lace to him - I opened two Boxes of Lace, and this was in one of the Boxes - I missed one Piece out of one Box, and five out of the other - the Night before he came I told my Laces over - I did not tell them over again till three or four Days after he was there.</p>

The next Day afterwards he came with another Piece of about thirteen Yards, and then I stopped him and the Lace too.

I asked the People of the House if they knew that Man, and they said yes; and I said that Man had robbed me.

The Drawer went out, and there came in a Chairman, I think his Name is Caibow; this Chairman thinking I could understand no English, said, if he would take him along with him he would go. - The Prisoner said it was a dangerous Thing to meddle with such Matters here; then the Chairman was called and went out, so the Prisoner came up to me, clapp'd his Hand upon my Shoulder, and said, I should be glad to have you for a Comrade, and you shall go with me to France; says he, I hope you are not against your own King and Country, meaning that I was a Frenchman: He said, if I would go with him, he would give me a Note under his Hand that I should be an Officer as soon as I came on the other Side of the Water; says he. I will give you 40 Livres. No says I, That is too little for such a Man as I am, I will have more as that - I spoke this in French. He put his Hand in his Pocket, and pulled out a French Crown. which I have here to produce, and said, he would make that 40 Livres more; (the French Crown was produced) this is worth

<p>Q. What were they Frenchmen?</p>
<p>Ross. They all spoke French.</p>
<p>Q. What Country People do you think they are?</p>
<p>Ross. They are Irish People - the Prisoner is an Irishman; they talked both English and Irish; then I made a Proposal to him, that as he was a Man that understood English, and I could not, if he would go along with me down into Wapping to get my Goods, I would go with him where he pleased; he agreed to that, and pulled out half a Crown, and gave it to the People of the House, for a Lodging for me and himself, and for the Reckoning, which was Fifteen-pence Half-penny - we did not lie there; this was between five and six o'Clock; the Prisoner and I went to the Black-Boy and Trumpet at Tower-Hill, and I called for a Pot of Beer, I spoke to the Landlord, and desired him in Dutch to go to St Catharines, to get a File of Musqueteers, but he refused it, and said, I should go myself - the Landlord spoke Dutch - the Prisoner could understand some Words of what we said; then, I said, I would talk to him in English; and I told him he was my Prisoner, and I would hold him; I had no Money in my Pocket, but this Piece, that I had of the Prisoner, and the Landlord would not let us go without paying for the Beer; said I to the Landlord, keep this in your Custody till I come and pay for the Beer; then I took the Prisoner out of the House, and carried him before Justice Dennet.</p>
<p>Court. This is all mispending of Time; for the Man took him to be a Frenchman; we will suppose this Man was a Subject of his Majesty, of which there is some doubt, if he pretends to be a Foreigner, and can't speak a Word of English, he is to be taken for what he pretends to be.

She was in Bed; the Prisoner then opened the Door - there was no Lock upon the Door, it was a Sort of a Spring Bolt, tied with two Strings, and they were twisted round a Nail; and the Door was easily got open; the first Thing I saw, was, that the Prisoner laid hold of a Knife; which, I suppose, was the first Thing that came to her Hand - it lay upon a Chest of Drawers, and she flung it at the Deceased - I saw her sling it.</p>
<p>Q. Then she did not stab her ?</p>
<p>Brown. No, she flung it at her, and she received a Wound under the Collar-Bone, on the left Side; and the Deceased said, Lord, Lord, see how she has stabbed me.</p>
<p>Jury. Stabbing implies a sticking with the Knife in her Hand; did she strike her with it in her Hand, or did she throw it at her?</p>
<p>Brown. She flung it, I do assure you.</p>
<p>Jury. At what Distance was it flung ?</p>
<p>Brown. About two Yards and an half - then the Deceased said, Lord, Lord, see how she has stabbed me; and the Prisoner said, I am sorry for it; and if I have done it, I am willing to suffer, I will not run away.</p>
<p>Q. Do you upon your Oath say she threw it at her?</p>
<p>Brown. She flung it at her, I do assure you - I will never vary a Tittle for the best Person upon Earth.</p>

I am a Parish Officer; I was called up at five o'Clock in the Morning; when I came into the House I saw a Woman lying dead; I asked who did it; the Prisoner said, she did it, and that she was sorry for it; I told her, she would be hanged, she said, she could not help it.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I got up between three and four o'Clock that Morning, and was cutting of Matches, when she came in drunk; I got some Gin for her, and she would have had me have got some Tobacco; and as I would not do that, she abused, and aggravated me very much, and, I said, I would lick her; but my Landlady hindered me, says she, let her come; and as I could not come to her, I took up the Knife, and threw at her.
