<p>- a Black. I am servant to Mr. Kirby, I have known the prisoner 20 years, he came over from Antegoa at the same time as I came over with my master; I asked him to dine with me, and it is a very hard thing if a man asks a person to eat a bit of victuals, that he must steal a silver spoon. I had a great deal of anger about it, for I have all my master's plate under my care.

<p>Q. Did he lodge at your house then?</p>
<p>Ashfield. He did a little before.</p>
<p>Q. How long have you known him?</p>
<p>Ashfield . I have known him about a year off and on. When he came in, he said, I have got something for you (I thought he was going to pay me some money that he owned me) said I, this is place, Ned; and I said I would not meddle with it. He left it with me, I was afraid it was stolen; and sell a trembling and shaking. Said I to Mr. Wonnell, do you take it, for I know nothing of thieving, I never had any concern with stolen goods in my life.</p>
<p>Q. What did you say when he brought it?</p>
<p>Ashfield. I said I would have nothing to do with it. He put it into my hand, and said, I should have it for three pounds. I said again I would have nothing to do with it; but he left it with me.</p>
<p>Q. Did he say any thing about your not shewing it to any body?</p>
<p>Ashfield. Yes, he said I must not shew it to any body. I kept it in the room where I lay till morning, and then I asked him how he came by it; he told me he found it. I advised him to have it cried, but he did not do it.</p>

<p>Q. Had the prisoner any part of the money?</p>
<p>Uptebake. I believe not; I believe he had a pair of silver shoe buckles and knee buckles, that Leekey concealed. I know Leekey and he had some difference about them (we did not know that Leekey had concealed them, till we saw the advertisement ) and they were going to fight about them, at Mr. Bradbury's, the Black Horse in Church Lane St. Giles's; Graham said to Leekey had cheated him in pawning the shoe buckles and knee buckles; and Leekey said , that then he was even with him, for Graham had cheated him of money, in selling brass rings for gold ones, in not giving him so much of the money as belonged to him.</p>
<p>Q. How far was Graham off when the house was robbed ?</p>
<p>Uptebake . I believe he was twice as far as the length of this court.</p>
<p>Q. How came he to be so far off?</p>
<p>Uptebake. I believe he did not know what * enterprise we were going out upon.</p>
<p>* Uptebake in the information he made before justice Poulson differs very much from what he swars now: for there he says, they agreed to go out together, and met for that purpose, and that the prisoner had part of the goods, and part of the money, which amounted to three or four pounds a piece.</p>
<p>Q. Then how could he expect any part of the buckles?</p>
<p>Uptebake . I am convinced in my mind, he had only a part of them.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Had you any design to put me into your information, till you was desired to do it by the high constable ?</p>
<p>Uptebake . I did not know there was any occasion to do it upon such trifling affairs, because, I believe he did not know at first what we were going about; afterwards I was informed that the prisoner was the principal instrument of my being taken up, then I put him into my information - He never committed any other robbery with me but this.

<p>James, I am a trumpet - I have been in the King's service, but I am not now. - I was going to pay some money to the woman at the Adam and Eve at Pancras. The prisoner said he wanted my money; I said I had none for my self, nor he neither. (I had 3 s. 6 d. in my pocket, and was going to pay half a crown away) He struck at me with a bag, jumped upon me, and seized me. He pulled and hawled me, and tore all my clothes. I bid him let me alone, for he should get no good of me. And he said, you black son of a b - h I'll be revenged on you, and finding he could get no good of me, he let me go, and went away. Then he came back, and attacked me again, laid hold of me, and said, you are not gone yet; but he soon let go his hold and run. There happened to be a gentleman and his lady in the church-yard ; the gentleman said he saw all the action, and advised me to get an officer to take him up.</p>
<p>Q. What did he strike at you with?</p>

I live in Monmouth Street, I deal in clothes; I was coming from the barber's between 9 and 10 in the morning - about five or six weeks ago; and Mr. Fraser (one who keeps an oil shop, and a man of as good a character as any man in the parish) called to me, and said, Mr. Foster will you buy any cloth (this is the cloth that I bought of the prisoner at the bar) said I, this is the wrong season of the year for such cloths as these (they are kerseys or narrow cloths) but I bought them of the prisoner outright; for Mr Fraser is his brother-in-law. He said he was a book-keeper 13 or 14 years at the Green Dragon in Bishopsgate street; and 3 or 4 years a ticket-porter. Just as he had told me the price of the cloths, Mr. Lamb came in, and said, don't buy those cloths, for I have had the price of them already, and I am willing to have them, as they are come honestly by. This made some words between Mr. Lamb and I, but we agreed to divide them, he had two pieces, and I two pieces.</p>
<p>Q. Was not there another man in the shop who owned that the cloths were his?</p>
<p>Bragg. There was another man in the shop, whether he was with him or not, I cannot say, but he did not say any thing about the cloths. I thought I bought them as fair as ever I bought any thing in my life.</p>
<p>Q. Did the prisoner say how he came by them?</p>
<p>Foster. He said he bought them of an hostler at an inn (I believe it was the Three Cups in Bread street) but it was the inn he said he was porter at.</p>

He laid the cloths down upon the counter, and said he wanted to sell them for a person who had a friend dead in the country; and they were sent up to sell to raise a sum of money. And he wanted to sell them that afternoon. I sent for Mr. Lamb, and he looked at them. Mr. Foster came by the door at the same time. Said I, you may look upon these cloths, for you are a good judge of cloths; so Mr. Foster and Mr. Lamb bought them, and had each of them 2 pieces. He was a porter at the Green Dragon in Bishopsgate gate street.</p>
<p>Q. Has not he been thought for some time past to be out of his senses?</p>
<p>Fraser . Yes, he has, he has been at my house till 12 o'clock at night, and I could not ge t him out, and he would ramble into a parcel of nonsense. He has wandered up and down, and the watchmen have taken him to be a sort of a thief.</p>
<p>Q. Did you at any time when he came to your house, take him to be out of his senses?</p>
<p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174504240013"/>Fraser. He has gone backward and forward with his words, that there was no notice to be taken of him.</p>
<p>Q. If you had thought him disordered in his senses at that time he brought these cloths to your house, would you have advised these gentlemen to have bought them?</p>
<p>Fraser . No. But at that time he spoke very well. And if I had thought they had been stolen, I would not have advised them to have bought them.</p>
<p>Mr. Lamb. I was sent for by Mr. Fraser , and he told me the prisoner was a brother-in-law of his, and had got 4 pieces of cloth to sell. The prisoner said the maker was dead in the country; and that they were sent up to be sold, because they wanted money, and he was to sell them for half a crown a yard, for ready money [exactly half the price they are laid at in the indictment] I took a pattern to show to a friend who is a very large dealer in cloths, to know whether they were a bargain or not, which I found they were. When I came back, Mr. Foster was there; I said, I was the first person spoke to about them: but Mr. Foster insisting upon part, he had two, and I two. I sold my two pieces in a day or two, for six pence a yard profit.</p>

The truss was missing, and I enquired after it; my chamberlain told me the prisoner had taken it away: said I, what business has he to take it away? The prisoner was then absent; but he returned again in about ten days time. Said I, George, let me speak to you; what have you done with the little truss of cloth that was here? said he, the right owner came for it, and I have given it to the right owner. He said, the man that brought it, ordered him to carry it away; and he met with a carter who took it quite away. Said I, sure it must be carried to some inn: he said, he could not tell where it was carried to.</p>
<p>Q. How long has he done business at your house?</p>
<p>Whaley . He has been a porter at my house about three years. He was porter to most of the ironmongers. When he came before the Justice, he said that he took the truss to Temple Bar, and then went to Monmouth street to sell it: that he disposed of it there, and had half a crown for his labour.</p>
<p>Q. Is not he apt to be disordered in his senses, and he absent from his business sometimes?</p>

I asked him where he was going to take it; he told me he was taking it to the right owner's in the Strand. I helped it upon his knott, and saw him take it down stairs, and carry it down the yard.</p>
<p>Q. What sort of a truss was it? how much do you think it weighed?</p>
<p>Richards. It might be about an hundred weight.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know what was in it?</p>
<p>Richards. I never saw the inside of the wrapper; but he told me it was cloth.</p>

<p>- Patrick. I have known the prisoner a great many years; and as to his lunacy, he has been so six or seven years. Sometimes I was afraid he would go out of his senses. I think it was occasioned by the fire at the White Swan, at Holborn bridge. Some goods were lost there, which was the occasion of his brains being turned.</p>
<p>Jury, to Mr. Fraser. You say you have seen him to be disordered in his senses sometimes?</p>
<p>Fraser. He has been so in my sister's time, and has not gone home for a whole eight days.</p>
<p>Q. What was your opinion as to the condition he was in when he was at your house with the cloths?</p>
<p>Fraser. I did not look in his face, but he spoke very well.</p>

These are the clothes, the remainder of the things Mr. Smith had sold; but he could not tell who he had sold them to, for he had sold them to different people, who came to his shop.

<p>Jury. Did you doubt his honesty when you turned him away?</p>
<p>Fox. No; but he was given to drinking, so that he would be absent for three or four days together, and would get so drunk that they would turn him out of gin shops at three or four in the morning. He confessed before Justice Poulson, that he sold the clothes, and was employed by a person unknown to sell them. That he was employed to carry them into Holborn, and the next day to carry them into Monmouth street to sell them. When he was before the Justice, there was a paper of accounts, and a pair of knee-buckles found upon him, which I could swear were in the trunk.</p>

<p>Q. Did you mind whether his trunk was safe?</p>
<p>Elton. It was safe .</p>
<p>Q. Did you lock the door?</p>
<p>Elton. I turned the key, but I can't pretend to say the door was locked. When I came up stairs between nine and ten in order to go to bed, I found the door unlockt, which surprised me very much. I asked the chamberlain if any body had been there, he said no body at all; I told him Mr. Fox's room, (the room which I was in possessession of,) was broke open. The prisoner gave such a slender account of the cloths which he had sold before, that I suspected him; I went on Wednesday night to take him, but could not; and on Thursday about six o'clock in the morning, I took him in bed, he broke from us in Chiswell street, and we took him again, and carried him before Justice Poulson . There was found upon him this pair of steel knee-buckles, which I believe are Mr. Fox's , and this paper of accounts, which is my hand writing.</p>
<p>Fox . These are my knee-buckles, this is my paper, which was in the box, and his receipt is upon it which he gave me, when I paid him off.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know whether the prisoner had been about the house that night?</p>
<p>Elton . I saw him at six o'clock in the evening, I did not see him afterwards.</p>
<p>Mr. Smith. On Wednesday the 13th or 14th of March, the prisoner brought some wearing apparel into my shop; and said, he had got some to sell: they were in a box tied round with a rope, I took them out of the box, and asked him how he came by them; he said, they belonged to a young gentleman that was dead, and the old gentleman the father was willing to sell them, and desired him to take them away, for they made him cry when he saw them: he said, he had been three weeks selling cloths and shalloons for the old gentleman, and these were the last of the things; upon which I bought them and paid him for them?</p>
<p>Q. What did you pay him for them?</p>
<p>Smith. I paid him 4 l. 8 s. I believe I paid him 4 l. 12 s. but I am positive to 4 l. 8 s.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure the prisoner's the person you bought them of?</p>
<p>Smith. I am sure the prisoner is the man.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I met a tallish man with them upon his shoulder, and he asked me what I must have to carry them into Holborn; and he gave me a shilling to carry them to the Crooked Fish in Holborn; he bid me come again, and then he ordered me to sell them for what I could get.

<p>Stamper . It was in an ale-house by the Monument.

There was a piece of lead which was wrapped up in a piece of blue paper, and she said G - D - n you, I hope I have got a piece of cambrick worth 10 s. Then I went to my mother, and my mother said, where have you been; I said I had been with my aunt; my mother said, you little impudent jade, I'll kill you, and she sell a licking me, and the prisoner said, don't be angry, for I have got some handkerchiefs.

<p>Prisoner. That wig he has on, he had of me for those very plants that I was taken up for about nine or twelve months ago, and that I am now prosecuted for. I was carried before a bench of Justices at Powel's coffee-house in Brown's lane, and was cleared by them.</p>
