My Wife said she had her Diamond Ear-Rings; the Prisoner asked her if they were worth 20 s. she said they were worth a great deal more: My Wife gave the Ear-Rings into her Hand; the Prisoner asked her if she had got any Salt; my Wife gave her some, and the Prisoner wrapped the Ear-Rings up in a piece of Paper with the Salt; the Prisoner at the Bar said I must not be there, for if I staid it would spoil the Thing, for it was my Wife's good Fortune and not mine; for by Virtue of this the Stones were to rise in the Cellar, and the Treasure would appear; so I went into the Shop, and left them by themselves: My Wife came into the Shop, and told me she believed the Prisoner had a mind to steal her Ear-Rings. The Prisoner told me, my Wife was troubled with an evil Sprit, and had no Faith; and that she thought there was something more than ordinary the Matter with her; and she told my Wife, that she seemed mistrustful, and that because she was mistrustful the Planet would be spoiled. I saw her slip the Ear-Rings away, and I thought that she had changed the Packet ; upon that, I immediately seized hold of the Prisoner's Hand; and in the Paper instead of my Wife's Ear-Rings there was
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174312070003"/> a pair of brass Buttons; and in the struggling one of the Ear-Rings dropped down, and the other I found between her Finger and Thumb. She put the Ear-Rings up in the Salt: they were not tied up, they were only wrapped up in a little bit of Paper.</p>

The first Time the Prisoner came I was at the Door, and there was a Quarrel in the Street facing our House; the Prisoner said to me, what Quarrel is that, Madam? said I, I cannot tell, I know nothing of it: She asked me if I had any old Clothes to sell; I told her no. Says she, you have a lucky Planet in your Face, I will tell you your Fortune: I said come in; she asked for some Coffee, but I had none; so she said she had a Law Suit depending, and she must make an end of it; that she could not stay then, but would come another Day; and when she came she made me say, In the Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, that I would do all that she proposed to me. She asked me if I had any Paper that was never wrote on; I told her I had; I fetched her a Sheet, and she divided it into three Parts. She asked me for some Salt; I fetched some Salt, and she said by the Virtue of that Salt the Mould was to rise in the Cellar, and the Money was to come up. I cannot tell the Sum of Guineas she mentioned to my Husband, besides broad Pieces, and Silver; then she asked me if I had got the 20s. that I told her I would get against that Day. She made me make that Bargain with her before, but I did not intend to give her the 20 s. She asked me if I had the Value of 20 s. about me; I told her I had a good deal more; that I had a pair of Diamond Ear-Rings; she asked me how much they were worth; I told her they cost me 3 Guineas; then she said, In the Name of the Almighty God, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, put them into this Paper, and then she said, God Almighty prosper what we are a going upon: Then she asked if I could say the Lord's Prayer, and said I must fall down on my Knees and say the Lord's Prayer three Times over, and by Virtue of this the Mould in the Cellar was to rise, and I should find the Treasure. I stepped out and told my Husband, that I had a Fancy the Woman wanted to steal my Ear-Rings, so he bored a Hole through the Door to watch her, and if he found I could not deal with her, he was to help me: She had the Ear-Rings in a Paper, I looked at her and saw her slip them away, and I thought changed the Parcel: They were to be tied up in this Handkerchief, and I was to swear that I would not open the Handkerchief before she came again; my Husband seized hold of her Hand, gave me a Paper, and said to me, look what you have got there, and in the Paper there was a pair of brass Buttons; when my Husband seized hold of her Hand, he said my Wife's Diamond Ear-Rings are here; she denied it, spoke a great many scandalous Things, and swore and cursed very much; but in the Skirmish one of the Ear-Rings fell down and broke in two, and the other he took in her Hand.</p>
<p>The Prisoner owned she had been there three Times, denied that she knew any thing of the Ear-Rings, that he must force the Ear-Rings upon her, in order to charge her with the Robbery.

I was very loth to go in, but she said, I should make her drink something, or it should be the worse for me; when she got me in, the Door was made fast, and they insisted on my going up Stairs, while they went for something to drink; I went up just to the Stairs Head, and begged of her to let me go about my Business, for I was upon a Message; I went into a Room, and the Prisoner brought some Liquor; the other Woman got hold of my Watch, and I pushed her away several times - I did not let her pick my Pocket then. She called for more Help, and then I was afraid of my Life. The Prisoner came in, and laid hold of me - The Prisoner held me while the other Woman picked my Pocket of half a Guinea - She clapped her Hands upon both my Arms, and held me for about a Minute; I had one Hand upon my Watch; the other Woman got hold of my Watch, but I pulled it out of her Hand, and saved that: They called out several Names, but no Body came. I went away immediately to Mr. Sharrock, and he came and took her up - I was so much frightened, that a Child of ten Years old might have managed me - That Half Guinea was all the Money I had in my Pocket - I gave the Prisoner a Shilling to change to pay for what I had, and she gave me Six-pence before the other took the Half Guinea away.</p>

I carried him before Justice Rickards , and he confessed the small Parcel was mine, but that he bought the large Parcel of a Smuggler. I weighed a Cannister of Soucbon Tea, which I suspected this to be taken out of, and by the Account I keep with the Officer of Stock, I found about two Pound and a half wanting: The Lid of the Cannister was loose, and two or three Ounces lay loose upon the Lid of the Cannister, as if some Body had taken it out in a Hurry - It is a Tea of a very strong Flavour, and I never knew any of this Sort of Tea run; and I think I can be positive it is some of my own Tea.</p>

On the 18th of September last, as I was going out of Town, the Prisoner came down Stairs, I thought she was not well, and asked her what was the Matter with her, she said she was extremely Ill with the Gravel and Stone; I desired her to send for Mr. Warner, a Surgeon, to come to her, but in talking with her, I thought I observed that she was fallen away, and suspected she had been with Child; I taxed her with having been with Child, she said she had voided a great Quantity of Water, that she was better, and said that she had not been with Child; I talked to her of having the necessary House opened, to search if any Child was there, which she insisted upon in order to clear her Character. On the 9th of November, I received a Letter from Mrs. Porter from Lincoln, where the Prisoner came from, in which she acquainted me, that she was two Months gone with Child before she came from thence; I told her of the Letter, and asked her concerning it; she then owned she had miscarried, and that she was five Months gone with Child when she miscarried; I sent for a Carpenter, and had the Vault opened, and there was a Child found.</p>

Mr. Porter asked me, whether I thought there had been any Violence done the Child; I said it had lain there so long, that I could not form a Judgment whether there had or no.</p>
<p>Q. Was it a Male or a Female Child?</p>
<p>Warner. I took the Child to the best of my Judgment to be a Female Child, though it had lain till I could scarce tell what Sex it was; I was asked what Growth I thought the Child was; I said it was so large, that I believed it might be about nine Months; I could not tell whether the Mother had gone the full Time or not - I cannot tell whether it was born alive, or not.</p>

<p>Q. Were they Friends before this?</p>
<p>Child. They were not Friends, or they had not fought; but they fought in order to be Friends with one another; they had fought twice before, and were parted both Times. Baker had given the Prisoner Challenges several Times - Baker had the better both Times, and that was the Reason he gave him the Challenge, because he thought himself to be a better Man than the other. I was the Deceased's Second, and took him up when he was down.</p>
<p>Q. How often had he been down?</p>
<p>Child . I believe about a Dozen times; they fought near half an Hour - Baker was down oftenest ; the Prisoner had the Advantage in the Falls, but as to the Blows, I cannot tell who had the Advantage.</p>
<p>Q. Did they part at last?</p>
<p>Child. No; Baker was down, and I said, they should fight no more. As soon as the Words were out of my Mouth, they both went away; and Baker being asked by the Prisoner, whether he would drink, he said, he could not drink, but he would fight him another Time - I am very certain this fight was to make Things up; for there was a Difference between several of us besides.</p>
<p>Q. When did the deceased appear to be ill?</p>
<p>Child. He was ill in about five Minutes after I said he should not fight any longer; in about five Minutes after that he dropped down, and had not Strength to put hi s Shirt on; I got him up, but he could not stand long.</p>
<p>Q. What do you think to be the Occasion of his Death?</p>
<p>Child. He might over-strain himself in the Fight, but I don't think the Blows were the Occasion of his Death.</p>
<p>Q. Was there any Malice?</p>
<p>Child. There was no Malice. There have been greater and harder Fights than this - When they cannot agree, they commonly fight it out; and it is done in order to be Friends.</p>
<p>Q. What Character has the Prisoner among you? Is he good natured?</p>

The Prisoner nursed my Wife in her Lying-in; she came to me the 13th of August ; on Sunday the 28th of August I went to a little Box, I always keep locked in my Bed-chamber, in which I keep my Diamonds; the Bottom was in one Place, and the Lid in another; I missed three Diamonds and a Pearl; I had the Room swept, I did not know but I might have taken them up with my Feet; I searched all about for them, and the Prisoner lighted me all the while. Says she, I don't know but I may have put them among the Ashes, I have thrown some Ashes into the Street; we went down into the Street, I grabbled in the Ashes, but could not find them, which made me very uneasy; I could not charge any Body with them, for I did not know who had been at my Box. I had given them over for some Time, and knew nothing of them till I heard they were offered to a Goldsmith in Whitechapel; so I took the Prisoner up, carried her before Justice Oxenford , of the Tower Liberty , and she made an ample Confession of the Fact, and said, she would make me Restitution for them. I went to the Goldsmith's, to search for them, and it fell out very unlucky, that I could not search for them, on Account of his being dead.</p>
<p>Blanch Flower. The Prisoner lived in the same House with me at the Field-Gate in Whitechapel; she asked me to go with her one Day, about nine or ten Weeks ago, to sell three Diamonds and a Pearl. I went over the Way with her to Mr. Gray's a Goldsmith, and she gave them into the Boy's Hand; he said, there was no body in the way to look at them; but, he said, you may leave them, and call again - She told me, they were a Jew Gentleman's Cook-maid's.</p>
