<p>Elby. The Prisoner lodged at my house about this time twelvemonth, and she has been about eight or nine weeks gone; her lodgings were a two pair of stairs room furnish'd; I know of the goods

There were taken away, a bed-quilt, a blanket, two sheets, a bolster, two pillowbears, a saucepan and cover, a stewpan, a tea-kettle, a looking-glass, a flat iron, &c. a pair of bellows, a table-cloth; all these goods were in her lodgings. I mist the goods in October.</p>
<p>Q. Who had the key of the lodging?</p>
<p>Elby. She had the key: she had a husband, but not at the time when we mist these goods; she left her lodgings, and carried the key away, and I sent after her; she took a lodging by Red-Lion square when I sent to her, and she sent the key; then I examined the lodging, and I mist these goods; after that I saw her the first time in the street, and I askt her for the things, and she said, she would bring them if I would not hurt her; she said she had pawned some of them at Mr. Sayer's in Wild-street, and some in Hart street, and some in the Savoy. We got a search-warrant, and she went with us to the pawnbroker's: we went to Mr. Sayer's first, and there we found the quilt, blanket, &c. then we went to Mr. Crew's in Hart street, and there I found the stew-pan and iron; we found all at these several pawnbrokers, except a tablecloth and two pillowbears, and the stew-pan; the stew-pan was taken out of a lodger's room.</p>
<p>- Sherwood pawnbroker. The prisoner brought to my shop about eleven months ago a tea-kettle and two blankets, and about seven months ago, two sheets; I have known the prisoner seven years, she used to work for a shoemaker, in our neighbourhood: at another time she brought a quilt.</p>
<p>- Parry. I am a pawnbroker. Last June the prisoner brought me a glass, and about two months ago she brought me a stew-pan, and at the same time a flat iron.</p>
<p>Q. What have you to say for yourself?</p>
<p>Prisoner. I did it in my husband's time, I did not intend to wrong them of the goods: I intended to bring them again, and it was out of mere necessity.</p>

<p>Q. Can you tell what things were left in your house when you went out to dinner?</p>
<p>Pierce. There was my gold watch and a gold chain, and a white cornelian seal; there was a purse and 3 moidores, a mourning ring in one drawer, in another drawer there was a muslin apron work'd, and 6 stockings, 2 silver tea-spoons. When I came home I did not think to look for my watch; the next morning I call'd to the woman to fetch my watch, and she could not find it; then I examined and found I lost many other things.</p>
<p>The Prisoner was carried to the Gate-house on Tuesday night, the next day by promising to be as favourable as I could, she confest 3 places where the things were; I found one apron upon her, and the Constable has the watch and many things.</p>
