The Prisoner came with a bit of victuals in his hand, pretty near to the place where the deceased was sitting, and said, he was very much tired. The deceased made answer and said, how could he be tired, for his work was but play; and the Prisoner said it was hard work, for he had carried a thousand and a half of bricks two story high that day. They contradicted one another, and the Prisoner gave the deceased the lie, and the deceased said if he gave him the lie again, he would hit him a slap on the face: and the other said if he did, he would return it. After that they talked of laying a wager about fighting, and then they went to fighting by consent: they had three falls, and the third fall they both fell down together sideways, and the Prisoner had rather the worst of it - I don't know any thing of any wound he received - He went home and died in about an hour afterwards. The Churchwarden said the Coroner obliged him to prosecute, and I appear for the parish.</p>

I live in Great Russel-Street; I was sent for to the deceased three days after he was dead to open the body, and found a vast quantity of blood in the cavity of the abdomen, which I believe proceeded from an eruption of one of the blood vessels, for there were no wounds upon him; and this must from the shock of the fall: there was one of the capital vessels in the cavity of the abdomen, and the body was quite in a diseased state before this accident. I opened the skull in order to see if there was any contusion upon the brain, but found it clear and safe. One lobe of the lungs was quite adhered to the pleura and was quite emaciated (but that was not occasioned by this fall) and there was a little adhesion of the other lobe, but not like that.

I got up upon my legs and pulled out 9 s. 9 d. (for I had just before received 9 s. 9 d. at the Civet Cat in the Strand,) and paid 3 d. for the pot of beer.

I asked the women of the house if she know them, and she said she did not; I got one to go after them, and I went down to the water-side, and saw them all three in the boat together; I called out to the waterman, thieves! one of them had thrown sixpence into the boat.</p>
<p>Q. Did not the waterman seize them?</p>
<p>Thorn. No, he did not; he pulled them away [rowed away] as fast as he could. I took a boat and rowed after them - There were some lighters a little way off, and some boats faitened to them, and I took one of them and rowed after them. When they came on shore I jumped upon a lighter, got on shore and took hold of the Prisoner and kept her. - I could not take them all for I had not a Constable?</p>
<p>Q. Did you find any thing upon her?</p>
<p>Thorn. I did not examine her as to that; the Justice asked me whether I could swear to the money in my pocket? I said, I could not; but it was small silver - I believe the Prisoner took it because she was by me.</p>
<p>Q. They were all three by you, why might not one of the others take it?</p>
<p>Thorn. The other two did not come near me after the money was lost.</p>
<p>Q. Which side of the table did the other women sit on?</p>
<p>Thorn. They sat on the off side of the table.</p>
<p>Q. Was the Prisoner near enough to touch you after you pulled out the money to pay the reckoning?</p>

I had got the broomstick in my hand, and I said I would knock his brains out if he offered to move, and then the money fell down - I don't know how much: then he pretty artfully catched hold of me and threw me over the rails into the road, but we both tumbled over together. Bucklimes was looking for the money: I still held Roach by the collar, and Bucklimes seeing I had managed him, held this stick up and said, G - d - your eyes , if you don't let him go, I'll knock your brains out; when I had him down I cried out murder, and in some little time the watch came.</p>

<p>Newton. Yes, and the money dropped out of Roach's hand; there was some money found in the tenter ground, and some in King Street. Roach was carried to the watch-house, and that money was delivered to me at the watch-house, and one shilling was found in his shoes: then I went home with Mr. Brampton and examined his pockets; the next morning Roach was examined before a Justice of the peace, and there he said I had robbed him of 3 s. 6 d.</p>
<p>Roach. What was the first place I met you at?</p>
<p>Newton. It was at the end of Hog-Lane.</p>
<p>- Bricknell (Constable). This note was taken out of Roach's hand in the watch-house, and there was a shilling found upon the ground near him - The watchmen were searching him when this paper was taken out of his hand.</p>
<p>Jury. When did Mr. Brampton fall down?</p>
<p>Brampton. Not till after my pocket was picked.</p>

I drew my head in again, that they might not observe me, and I saw the prisoner come out again, with something in his apron, and he walked very soberly towards the other man. I said, There is a boy come out of Mr. Lockall's house with something in his apron, and I believe he has robbed him; and cried out stop thief; and then the Prisoner ran along, and cried stop thief. One of them run on one side of the street, and the other on the other side; but when they came to the corner of the street, one turned one corner, and the other the other corner. - I believe the prisoner was about 5 or 6 minutes in the house.</p>

<p>Caryl. I was not drunk - I can't say I was quite sober - No, no, I was not drunk: we went together into Windsor-Court, and I staid there all night.</p>
<p>Q. Did you lie alone?</p>
<p>Caryl. Yes, I did; the Prisoner gave me a candle, and I went up stairs and went to bed; and she came up and fetched the candle away - I had no liquor, the Prisoner and another woman or two that were there had some. I lay till near seven o'clock on Sunday morning, then I was going to get up. I went to take my breeches from under my head to look what it was o'clock, and my watch was gone. I happened to light upon the Prisoner the 24th of July and had her taken up - I am sure I had it when I went to bed.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure of that?</p>
<p>Caryl. Yes, I am. I did not come here to take a false oath; when I came down there was only an old woman, and I asked her concerning it, and she said there had been nobody in the room but the woman who lighted me up - I never had my watch again, and know no more of it but by her confession before the Justice - She confessed she took the watch, and gave it to a gentleman who had pledged it, but she did not say where it was pledged.</p>

As I was at work in a brick field, I heard a noise of men quarreling for upwards of a quarter of an hour; I left off work and went into the brick field where they were and went up within six yards of them; and there stood the Deceased, and the Prisoner came up to him; the Deceased said what is it you would have? And the Prisoner said what do you want with me, sirrah? What do you mean by abusing me in this manner? Upon that the deceased asked him if he would fight him: fight you, says the Prisoner, what should I fight you for? you fight me! Says the deceased, fight you, aye, but won't you take the Law of me? the Prisoner said to the deceased, I take the Law of you, what should I take the Law of you for? with that the deceased struck the Prisoner or struck at him - I can't tell whether he struck him, but he struck at him; - they had each of them sticks. (The stick the Prisoner had was produced, which was a small bamboo cane with a crook Ivory head, part of which was broke off.) After he had struck at the Prisoner, the Prisoner struck at him again; and after several blows had passed on both sides, the Prisoner laid hold of the deceased and threw him down with his face upon the ground; his face was very bloody and the blood run down very sadly between his Eyes. After he was down the Prisoner beat him with his stick several times, and broke his stick upon him. Then a person took him up, but the Prisoner being stronger than he drove him four or five yards, and he fell down flat upon his back in a cart rut; and then the Prisoner went to strike at him again, though I don't know that he struck him any more, but the deceased lay in a dismal condition; for I believe he was in liquor, and what between that and the blows he could not stir himself.</p>
<p>Q. Did not you observe the deceased turn from the Prisoner, and then the Prisoner follow him and strike at him.</p>
<p>Smart. I did not see that - the deceased had the biggest stick.</p>
<p>Q. Did not you observe that when the deceased was down, the Prisoner continued to strike him over the back and reins?</p>
<p>Smart. Yes, and I asked whether he was going to murder the man, and the people said the deceased began first; I said if he did begin first he ought not to be murdered.</p>
<p>Sparham, Surgeon. On the 16 or 17 of May, I was sent for to the deceased, which was thirteen days, as I was informed, after he had received an injury by Mr. James the Quaker; there was a wound upon his nose, which upon searching I found was almost healed up by his own applications, and I found his under jaw contracted close; his swallowing prevented almost entirely; he could not go to stool and could hardly make water. I examined his head to see if he had received any wound there; there was no fracture, and I could not perceive any wound except that in his nose: I did something to relax the jaw and to make him evacuate; but in about three days he died: the upper part of the bone of the nose was bruised, upon which I put my probe into the outward membrane or covering of the bone, and the probe came through into the roof of his mouth, and by the simpathy between one membrane and another, this bruise occasioned the contraction of the jaw, so that it is my opinion the man died of a penury or a perfect starving.</p>
<p>Q. Did you ever know an instance of this nature before?</p>
<p>Sparham. Yes, two or three times; but 'tis very rare, I saw it once in a carman; that such a contraction was occasioned by the bruise of one of
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174409120019"/> his fingers. It is my opinion this contraction occasioned the want of swallowing and going to stool, and that this contraction was occasioned by this blow.</p>
<p>Jury. Mr. Sparham, if you had been sent for at first might not this have been prevented?</p>
<p>Sparham. I believe if I had been sent for I should have laid it open, and that would have relieved the membrane.

I had got the gout and could not run very well, but I cried out stop thief, and some People stopped her: when I came up to her I took hold of her by the arm, she said, you will hurt me, take hold of my collar, said I, You have nothing to take hold of there, and I said, Child, I will not hurt you, but I am resolved to prosecute you, then she cried and begged for mercy.</p>
