Butler said, she did not design to keep it.</p>

<p>Prisoner. I went to see my cousin Tom, as he had been abroad a great while, and he was glad to see me, and asked me to drink with him when he was going away. I saw he was very much in liquor, and I desired him to leave his watch with Mr. Dunbar; but he would not leave it. And I said, Tommy, we will have another pot of beer; he said, he had no money. Said I, I'll go and pawn your watch for a trifle; for I was willing to get it from him, for fear he should lose it, as the times were very dubious. I took the watch and gave it to Butler. Next morning I went to her, and desired a quartern of gin, and asked her what she had done with the watch. She said she had pawned it. I went to Kit Audrey, and desired him to go with me to Butler's, to get his brother's watch; but she would not deliver it.</p>
<p>Q Did Philpot desire you to leave your watch with Mr. Dunbar?</p>
<p>Prosecutor. Yes, she did. I was pretty much in liquor.

Mr. Rann said it was his spoon, and when the spoon was produced to the Prisoner, he owned the fact.

<p>Q. What makes you think the Prisoner was one?</p>
<p>Collison. At the first sight of him, I took him to be one; but I can't swear to him. I believe this is the trunk: this key in particular I can swear was taken from me at that time.</p>

<p>Waters. We hit him but one blow over the head, and that John Hill hit him.</p>
<p>Q. Where did you carry the things?</p>
<p>Waters. I carried them to Saffron-hill, and left them at a coffee house: the woman asked me how I came by them. I said, I was going on an errand into Cheapside with them - I think it is Will's coffee-house, it formerly was a brandy-shop; but the woman never bought any thing of me, and never knew that I went a thieving. When I was before Justice Fraser, I sent for the things, and she delivered them up directly.</p>
<p>Q. How long have you been acquainted with the Prisoner?</p>
<p>Waters. About two years - we did not live together - Gascoign brought me acquainted with him, and we used to meet at Gascoign's house in Jack Adams's Alley (I think it is.) Gascoign was brought up near me almost all his life-time.</p>
<p>Q. Where had the Prisoner, Gascoign, and you been that night?</p>
<p>Waters. We had been upon other things, to see if we could get any thing: after I had left these things at Saffron-hill, we went to an alehouse.</p>
<p>Q. How had you money?</p>
<p>Waters. I had a great quantity of money - I deal in hard ware, and keep a house in Hare-street, in Cold-bath-fields; and these fellows used to say, if I did not give them money, or go along with them, they would hang me; and when I heard that John Hill was taken up, I voluntarily surrendered myself, and gave an information; and I would have done it sooner, only these rouges would not let me alone.</p>
<p>Q. Who did you surrender yourself to?</p>
<p>Waters. To one Quaite. - I believe he is a bailiff.</p>
<p>Q. How came you to think, that he was a proper person to surrender yourself to?</p>
<p>Waters. Because he took Hill.</p>
<p>Q. Then Hill's being taken, frightened you?</p>
<p>Waters. No, I was not at all afraid, for if Hill had not been taken, I would have surrendered my self that night.</p>
<p>Q. But that made you go and do it directly, did it not?</p>
<p>Waters. It did, Sir.</p>

<p>Q. How do you know it was those two women?</p>
<p>Artwell. I took one of them directly - the farthest of the two [Jackson,] I don't know their names, how should I know their names? this gentleman [Mr. Capel ] came and knocked them off me, with his stick.</p>
<p>Q. Could you see so as to distinguish who they were?</p>
<p>Artwell. How should I see when I was throtled?</p>
<p>Q. How many women did you see?</p>
<p>Artwell. I did not see any women till I was down, to my knowledge.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see nobody?</p>
<p>Artwell. Not that I know of.</p>
<p>Q. You seem to come in jest: was you in Liquor ?</p>
<p>Artwell. I was neither drunk nor sober.</p>
<p>Q. Was you drunk?</p>
<p>Artwell. No I was not drunk, if I was, I could not have set with the watchmen till four o' Clock in the morning, drinking with them.</p>
<p>Q. Was the stock and stock buckle you lost taken off from your neck, or was it lost in the bustle?</p>
<p>Artwell. No it was taken away from me, and I took one of them up directly, and my collar was open.</p>
