<p>Thornhill. The House where this Thing happen'd I had lodg'd at; there was a poor Woman in the House that wash'd my Linnen; as I was going to her thro' the House, I saw five or six Soldiers playing at Cards in the Box.</p>
<p>Q. What House is it?</p>
<p>Thornhill. A Publick House, in King-Street, Westminster; I set down with the Landlady's Sister in a Box, about half an Hour, upon which I heard some Words arise between two Soldiers, and the Deceas'd swore that he had won the Game; the other ( the Prisoner at the Bar ) swore that he had not won it fair, and insisted upon its being play'd over-again, the other swore he would not; upon that he came out of the Box, the Prisoner at the Bar insisted that he would not pay, the other Man (the Deceas'd) came out to him, and swore he should pay it; with that they had a great many Words, at last the Deceas'd was in a great Passion, stripp'd into his Shirt, swore he would fight him if he did not pay it. Said the Prisoner, I will have a Knock with you over the Table; the Prisoner did not seem to be willing to go into the House to fight; so after a great many Words, at last they put their Clothes on again, for the People of the House said there should be no Fighting in the House; with that Words arose again, and the Deceas'd swore he would have the Pint of Beer, and call'd for it; the Prisoner at the Bar said he would not pay for it; with that the Deceas'd stripp'd his Clothes off again, and struck the Prisoner at the Bar, and swore he would have the Beer, and in a vast Passion, very forward to
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174604090004"/> fight, he call'd this Man a great many Names because he would not pay, and struck him once or twice, and the Prisoner did not return it, and did not seem to be free to fight with him; but after a great many Words, and many Provocations, the Deceas'd struck him again; at last the Prisoner at the Bar said, I can't fight against four or five of you, or else I should not be afraid to take a Knock or two with you; so the Corporal said, don't make such a Noise here, but if you have a mind to fight, go out, and no Man shall stir out here. The Corporal said to the Prisoner, I will give you five Shillings if any Man comes out to give you any soul Play. After many Provocations the Prisoner at the Bar said I'll go out and take a Knock or two with you, if I have fair Play; so they went out at the Back-Door and went up to Downing's-Court there to fight; I not being concern'd about it, but hearing all that pass'd I had the Curiosity to go out at the Street Door to see how the Battle would go; I might be about 30 Yards behind them: I saw the Prisoner at the Bar throw his Coat and Waistcoat off; they were just set to it, they made two or three Blows at one another; presently the Prisoner gave the other a Trip and he tumbled down; tumbling down he did not offer to get up again; so he not offering to get up, the Prisoner at the Bar said, if you will have any more of it get up; with that he gave him a little Pull by the Hand, and it seem'd as if the Man was afraid to get up again; but I saw he began to work at the stomach, and began to heave and froth at the Mouth; and I believe died in ten Minutes.</p>

<p>Q. Then you was not in the House?</p>
<p>Terry. No, my Lord; but when I came up to them I believe there was four or five Blows between them both; I believe a Boy of twelve or fourteen Years of Age could have given a greater Blow than either of them: The Deceas'd fell backward; when he was down the Prisoner at the Bar put his Hand to his Breast, and said, take a good Heart and get up again. Coming back I saw the Landlady of the House at the Back Door, who said to me, Did you see it? Yes, I said, I believ'd it was all over. The Girl came back presently after me and said, the Man is dead, and he was brought down.</p>

<p>Hoskins. The Creature (So I may call her) she wanted to bring me into a Premunire. My Husband, please you my Lord, was asleep; he had been a Journey, and he did not awake at this Time. She said, I wish you would be so good as to buy the Mug, or let me have a Trifle upon it. I refus'd it; she said she was not in a Dress fit to go out with it, and said, will you please to let your Girl go out to any of your Acquaintance, to borrow as much as they can upon it; so the Girl agreed to go, and ask'd what she must borrow upon this Mug; the Prisoner said she might borrow 20 s. if she could; but they would not give her any thing unless I would come; I went, and told them the People were at my House, and so they gave 30 s. for the Mug.</p>

<p>Steward. Yes, my Lord.</p>
<p>Q. Where is your Husband's House?</p>
<p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174604090015"/>Steward. In New Hermitage-Street.</p>
<p>Q. Did your Husband lose any Goods from thence?</p>
<p>Steward. Yes, my Lord; they were my Husband's to be sure.</p>
<p>Q. When were these Goods lost?</p>
<p>Steward. They were lost between the last Day of October and the 7th of March.</p>
<p>Q. Pray in what Manner were they lost? How came you to suspect that the Prisoner took them?</p>
<p>Steward. Because, my Lord, I left her in the House.</p>
<p>Q. Do you carry on any Business there?</p>
<p>Steward. She (the Prisoner) came to lie with me, either in the Latter End of May, or the Beginning of July; a Neighbour brought her to lay with me, and I could never get her away; but I never saw any of her Money. In the latter End of October last I went to Hall, to meet my Husband, as he is a Sea-faring Man; she (the Prisoner) comes in with a Paper in her Hand, and said, I have a Paper come up from Cornwall, to make you easy and myself too. I said, I shall be gone before Saturday Night; and I said to Mrs. Brown, I have serv'd you before now, and oblig'd you; Now will you oblige me, in looking after my House while I am gone, as my Maid is so young; I said, if it suited her Convenience? She promis'd she would. I gave her 10 s. and said, Will that be enough 'till that Time you have your Money? I went away that very Night. The next Day after that I was gone, Mr. Canedy and his Wife return'd, (they had been out of Town, and use to lodge with me) she said to them, the Case was alter'd, and she put the Man and his Wife upon a Flock Bed, and gave them nothing to eat. The Prisoner refus'd to let them have the Bed they us'd to lie on.</p>
<p>Q. Did you not hear from the Prisoner all this Time?</p>
<p>Steward. I had two Letters, and no more, and very kind ones they were. When my Husband and I came home, we were surpriz'd to see the House in such Distraction; and she has been an Instrument of making a Difference between me and my Husband.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see the Prisoner after this?</p>
<p>Steward. Yes, and desir'd her to tell me where my Goods were. At last she own my Crape Gown and some other Things were pawn'd, and some carried out for fear of Fire.</p>
<p>Court. According to the State of Things this appears only to be a Breach of Trust. We believe, good Woman, you have been very much wrong'd, and the Prisoner is open to the Law, but not to a criminal Prosecution.</p>

<p>John Brown. The Prisoner came to my House the 12th of February, and brought this Spoon I have in my Hand. I saw something fil'd on the back Side of the Spoon, which made me have some Suspicion, or I should not, for I have known the Man for three or four Years. He said that it was his own. I advertis'd the Spoon, and several People came, but none came up to the Marks of it: After that I saw an Advertisement of Mr. Woodifield's. I went to Mr. Woodifield's with the two Spoons, and Mr. Woodifield compar'd them with some other Spoons, and we match'd the Silversmith's Mark; we compar'd them with some other Spoons of theirs, and found that they tallied exactly. I describ'd the Person I had them of; they said he came to their House very often. The same Day he came again; upon that they stopp'd him, and he own'd he took the Spoon, and said it was pure Necessary put him upon it. When he went before the Justice, he own'd the same, and seem'd very ignorant of the Nature of the Crime.</p>

<p>The Prosecutor gave the Man a very good Character, and believ'd it was mere Necessity, that he had a sick Wife, &c. and he offer'd to take him into his House himself.</p>

I came down, and a Person I saw in the Street said I had left my Door open; whe n I came down there was no Fire, nor no Appearance of Washing.</p>
<p>Q. Did you find the Girl in the House.</p>
<p>Russel. No. I went up and told my Wife; she ask'd me if I saw any Thing missing; I miss'd several Things. Then I consulted what I should do, as the Girl could not be found; I went to a Broker's and discover'd some of the Things.</p>
<p>Q. What did you discover?</p>
<p>Russel. I discover'd two Caps and a Shirt. I went about to a great many Places, and heard no more of them 'till Ten o'Clock; a Broker came to me, and he stopp'd the Girl by offering a Cap of my Wife's. When I came to the Pawnbroker's I saw it was the Girl that was with me: She had a Woman with her, and another in the Street.</p>
