I went into the Magpye Alehouse, just by, and calling for a Pint of Ale and Gin, I filled my Pipe and smoked, and pulled my Snuff-Box out of my Pocket. Said I to my Landlady, I believe you are a Welsh-woman. This Woman, (the Prisoner) sat by me, I gave her my Box to take a Pinch of Snuff, she return'd it, and I put it up in my Breeches Pocket; when I had paid my Reckoning I went out to the Door, and the Prisoner at the Bar came to me and took me by the Arm, and walked with me over Clerkenwell-Green towards St. John's Wall. I put my Left Hand about her Neck, and gave her a Kiss; while my Left Hand was round her Neck, her Right Hand was in my Pocket; I presently missed my Box, but away she ran, and I said give me my Box. She d - n'd me and said, touch
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174601170006"/> me if you dare; which I was afraid to do, as she might have some Accomplices. I said, I will never leave you till I bring you to Justice. When I got her into St. John's-Street, there I was inform'd of an Officer. It wanted but a Quarter of an Hour of Nine o'Clock before I could get it settled. After she had been charged about an Hour, she walked out under a Pretence to find my Box; she sent a Watchman to fetch her Landlady; who answer'd, what is the Matter? I'll be hang'd if she has not picked the Gentleman's Pocket.</p>
<p>Q. So, you lost your Box?</p>
<p>Rutter. Yes, she did her Work very quick.</p>

<p>Gough. Not before this Time. This Girl (the Prisoner) wanted to make a Bargain to go out a Thieving: At first, I said, I would not, and afterwards, I said, I would. And going along Leicester-Fields we met the Boy, Roger. The Girl (the Prisoner) saw the Entry-Door open of this Gentlewoman's House, the Stocking-Shop: And the Girl and Boy went into the Yard, and so they got up the Ladder; I follow'd them to the Door to see which Way they went.</p>
<p>Q. Could you see them when they were in the Yard?</p>
<p>Gough. They got up the Ladder, and got over some Leads.</p>
<p>Q. Did they both get up?</p>
<p>Gough. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see them get up the Ladder?</p>
<p>Gough. Yes. But I only saw them go up the Ladder. They got into the Gentlewoman's Window.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see them?</p>
<p>Gough. No. But I heard the Girl say so. She said she got into the Gentlewoman's Window. And so the Boy had got something up in a Bundle.</p>
<p>Q. Was you by the Yard?</p>
<p>Gough. I was the outside of the Yard.</p>
<p>Q. How long were they gone?</p>
<p>Gough. About two Hours.</p>
<p>Q. What Time was this?</p>
<p>Gough. About Eight o'Clock. The Boy got the Bundle, and the Girl went down the Yard, and the Boy toss'd them to her.</p>
<p>Q. How do you know that?</p>
<p>Gough. The Girl told me so.</p>
<p>Q. Did they stay two Hours?</p>
<p>Gough. Yes. about that House and another.</p>
<p>Q. You did not see the Boy come down again?</p>
<p>Gough. No Sir.</p>
<p>Q. Who did you see have the Bundle?</p>
<p>Gough. I saw the Girl have the Bundle.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see the Boy meddle with that Bundle.</p>
<p>Gough. No Sir.</p>

Upon the 30th of December when I went up to Bed, I found a Pillow upon my Bed more than my own. I thought she might take it away from her Lodging. I reckon'd upon her coming in the Morning as usual. There were three Boxes of my Grand Mother's, which she had left in my Care, when my Mother died. When I got up in the Morning, and came to go down Stairs, one of these Boxes was like to fall down: They were up two Pair of Stairs, between two Rooms.

I went to her Lodgings after her, early next Morning, but she had discharged her Lodgings and had not been home all Night. About the 3d of January I found her in Bunnel-Row. So I asked her how the Pillow came upon my Bed, and why she did not come as usual. My Dear Mistress, she answer'd, I knew I had wrong'd you and I was asham'd to see you. I told her of the Boxes: Indeed, my dear Mistress, says she, I was in Liquor and I uncorded them; but I will tell you what I have done with the Things, And she said, she would go with me to the Pawn-broker and fetch them out, if I would not let the Pawn-broker give her Trouble. So I went the next Morning to one Mr. Kiese's, Pawn-broker in Cheek-Lane. I went with her to another Pawnbroker, and she called for two Parcels more, at one Sharp's on Saffron-Hill. Then she said, she had given me all. I told her I could not release her 'till I
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174601170014"/> had seen whether these were all the Things. Then I sent for my Mother; when she came there was nor half the Things. Then I went with her to the Alderman, and she sent to Kiese's for a Holland Apron, the same Pawn-broker she was at before. Then says she, my dear Mistress, I can tell you of more, but you cannot have them, for I have sold them out-right to a Pawn-broker in the Strand. She often used to say to me, she question'd not, but there were a great many good Things in these Boxes.</p>

My Lord, I serv'd my Mistress two Years ago and I went to her again: She was making Complaint that she had lost several Things, and she said her Husband had got a Writ against me.

<p>Freeman. I live in Dudley-Court. I took the Room of one Ruth Burne. I lost there a Flock Bed, a Feather Bolster, a pair of Sheets, two Quilts, and a pair of Blankets.</p>
<p>Q. Did you furnish the Room yourself? How long have you been in this Room?</p>
<p>Freeman. I took it six Weeks before Christmas.</p>
<p>Q. Did you leave your Lodgings; how came it that your Bed was gone.</p>
<p>Freeman. I was oblig'd to go out to daily Labour, as Washing and Ironing, and whilst I was out, my Bed was gone.</p>
<p>Q. Did you go out in the Morning?</p>
<p>Freeman. Yes. About Six o'Clock and return'd about Seven in the Evening.</p>
<p>Q. Was there any Thing else gone?</p>
<p>Freeman. I did not miss any Things besides what has been mention'd.</p>
<p>Q. Did you ever see the Prisoner at the Bar?</p>
<p>Freeman. Yes. I saw him three Days before he took my Bed and Bedding away.</p>
<p>Q. Did you know what Relation he was to your Landlady?</p>
<p>Freeman. No.</p>
<p>Q. When you came home at Night, was you not much surpriz'd to find your Bed gone; did you not ask your Landlady about it?</p>
<p>Freeman. Yes. And she told me he (the Prisoner) took it away.</p>
<p>Q. And pray did not she tell you the Reason why he took it away?</p>
<p>Freeman. She said he had been stripping and robbing of her likewise.</p>
<p>Q. Did this Burne and your Landlady appear to be Man and Wife?</p>
<p>Freeman. No. For they were always jarring together.</p>
<p>Q. Was not the Bed the Prisoner took away, that upon which he and his Wife lay?</p>
<p>Freeman. No, my Lord.</p>

<p>Morris. I was trucking of Sugars at the Keys: There were several at Work with me at Bear-Key, and one of them a Soldier; and this Man (the Prisoner) came to see the Soldier, and fetch'd a Quartern of Gin: It was almost dark when he came the second Time: My Partner saw him go into the Warehouse where the Sugar was, but he (the Prisoner) did not perceive it. My Partner said, have an Eye to the Place, there is a Man gone into the Building. As I was going down towards it, when I was come opposite to the Door, the Prisoner came out of the Warehouse; upon that I stopp'd him. I told him, I believ'd he had something there he should not have. I catch'd hold of him, and he had about 14 lb. of Sugar, the same as in the Warehouse. Some of it was thrown down, and about a Pound I found in his Pocket, of the same Sort.</p>

<p>Smith. About five Weeks ago. I ask'd her what she would take for two Pair. She ask'd me 8 d. I gave her 7 d. I ask'd her whether she came honestly by them. She said, she did. She ask'd me if she should call again the latter End of the Week. I said she might. I never saw her 'till Thursday last; she came again, and ask'd me, do you want any more Leather. I answer'd I could not tell, it was so cold; but I carry'd one of these Soles to a Leather-Cutter's; and he told me, he was sure it was stolen; and desir'd me, when she came again, I would stop her: Accordingly, she came; but I said, go into the publick House and I will come to you. She went in and I bought a Pair of her mark'd 7 d. for a Groat: When I carry'd them to the Leather-Cutter, he bid me pay for them and he would come immediately: And when he came, he look'd upon the two Pair she had in her Hand, and ask'd her what she would have for them; 1 s. She ask'd, and he bid her 8d. With that, he just touch'd her by the Hand and said, How come you by these Goods: He insisted to know where she bought them : She said, she bought them of Mr. Jarvis's Maid on Snow-Hill.</p>
