The Justice asked him how he came by that money, and he said he received it for wages and prize-money: being ask'd how much there was of it, he said he believed about 9 or 10 l. but, upon telling it over, there was 17 l. with the portugal piece, which Mrs. Jones swore to, which was produced in court: he said he was a sailor before the mast, the Justice told him by his appearance he should have taken him for a captain of a man of war, by his lac'd waistcoat, &c. The Justice desired him to be ingennous, if he had any thing to say to Mr. Jones; so we went to an ale-house, and upon Mr. Jones's charging him with taking the money, he retun'd for answer, he was sorry for what he had done, adding, this money is all yours; and he own'd the same when we took him back again.</p>

<p>Q. What time of the day was this?</p>
<p>Tabart. It was about the same time of day the other was.</p>
<p>Q. What did he do then ?</p>

<p>Q. How old is she?</p>
<p>Winch. I cannot justly say; I think she was about four months old when she came over.</p>
<p>Q. What time did they come over?</p>
<p>Winch. I am not certain, I think about 1739. I cannot tell what time of the year, nor am I certain of the year; she has been with me these six years; I live in St. George's street at the seven Dials.</p>

<p>Q. Have you been in company with the prosecutor lately?</p>
<p>Toft. No, only I happened to be in court; I knew the child's father, he went abroad with the consent of his parents, and staid some time, and then return'd, and there was a little child brought over, and I believe this to be the child.</p>
<p>Q. How long do you think it is ago since; the child's father came over?</p>
<p>Toft. I believe it is about nine years since; I knew him an infant.</p>
<p>Q. Is there any particular circumstance that you can remember Mr. Tabart's coming over by?</p>
<p>Toft. I remember his coming over very well; I will not pretend to say to two or three months.</p>
<p>Q. Can you remember how long the mother lived after she came over ?</p>
<p>Toft. No, I cannot say.</p>
<p>Mr. Vilnoe. I am a Surgeon, I was sent for to visit this child, her mother being alarm'd at a washerwoman's bringing home some linen that was sent to wash, they supposing it to be uncommon to a child. Upon examination I found the discharge was like the common, general appearance; the same night I examin'd the Prisoner at the Bar, and he acknowledged he had lain with the child, before the constable; and at the Watch-house I examin'd him and found a running upon him.</p>
<p>Q. Did there appear any marks on the thighs that seem'd to prove a force upon the child?</p>
<p>Vilnoe. There was a small laceration and I believe had time to heal up.</p>
<p>Q. Were there any black and blue marks that express'd violence ?</p>
<p>Vilnoe. I observ'd no black or blue marks.</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174901130007"/>Q. Did not the prisoner confess he had lain with the child several times?</p>
<p>Vilnoe. He own'd two times.</p>
<p>Q. At what distance of time?</p>
<p>Vilnoe. That he did not say, it did not appear to be the same day.</p>
<p>Q. How long after the time was it he was taken up?</p>
<p>Vilnoe. By the child's account I believe about a fortnight after.</p>
<p>Q. From your inspection of the child how old do you take her to be?</p>
<p>Vilnoe. The parts of some children are larger than others; I cannot be positive, but if I may speak from circumstances, I believe she is not ten years old, but I am not certain.</p>
<p>Q. Can you give any evident account of the difference between nine and eleven?</p>
<p>Vilnoe. I really cannot; I observ'd to you before, that some children may have parts as large at nine as some again at eleven or twelve.</p>

<p>Q. Was the Prisoner at your house when you came back?</p>
<p>Craggs. Yes, and the child too.</p>
<p>Q. When did the child complain?</p>
<p>Craggs. She told me that he said to her, if she told me he would beat her, and I should whip her to death. I made observation upon her linen about three or four days after, and I could not think what was the meaning of it; I said to several of my neighbours, I could not think what was the matter with my child.</p>
<p>Q. Did you for relief for her apply to any person?</p>
<p>Craggs. I sent for a gentlewoman that is an Apothecary's widow, and had some things of her for the child. I came to find it out by this means on the 1st of March; he serv'd another neighbour's child in the same manner, and that child went and told her mother of it. The woman was telling me what a vile villain he was, and said

<p>Q. When was this?</p>
<p>Craggs. This was the 1st of March at night, when I sent for Mrs.

<p>Q. Did her private parts appear sore?</p>
<p>Craggs. She had no skin all round her body but all as red as scarlet: the gentlewoman kept giving her some stuff, and she grew better by degrees; but she is now weak in her loins, and there is still a running upon her.</p>
<p>Q. How old is she?</p>
<p>Craggs. This was in February; on the 25th of April following she was ten years old.</p>
<p>Q. How come you not to prosecute the prisoner before now?</p>
<p>Craggs. There were warrants issued out for him, but he always made his escape. Mr. Howel, the other child's father, apply'd, for that I had compassion for his wife and child.</p>
<p>Q. Where did the prisoner live then?</p>
<p>Craggs. He lived at that time about twelve doors from my house; he was my next door neighbour about six or seven years.</p>
<p>Q. Did you tell the prisoner of the affair, after your child mentioned it to you?</p>
<p>Craggs. As soon as I heard it I went and accus'd him of it in his own house: I was in a great passion, and call'd him many names, and he had not a word to say in his own defence; he said he had not hurt my child. My husband went to a Justice on the first of March, and his clerk was ill in bed, but he promis'd him on the morrow he would sign him a warrant, but he went to sea in three days after this discovery: he has since been to the West Indies.</p>

<p>Q. Pray child tell us what he did to you?</p>
<p>M. Craggs. He heav'd me across a chair, and went and bolted the street and yard door; said I, what are you a going to do? he said, child, lie down, I will not hurt you: he made me lie down, and said if I cry'd out the neighbours would hear, and they would tell my mother and she would whip me to death.</p>
<p>Q. Did you lie down?</p>
<p>M. Craggs. He laid me down.</p>
<p>Q. What else did he do?</p>
<p>M. Craggs. He put somewhat into my private parts that hurt me sadly: said I, you hurt me sadly; O says he, my dear, I don't; I know I don't, says he; says I, indeed Mr. Tennant, you do hurt me; says he, I know I don't.</p>
<p>Q. Did you observe any thing come from him wet?</p>
<p>M. Craggs. Yes, sir.</p>
<p>Q. Well, and what after that?</p>
<p>M. Craggs. After that my mother came home, says he, don't tell your mother; if you do your mother will whip you to death.</p>
<p>Q. When was you first search'd?</p>
<p>M. Craggs. One madam Mears search'd me; my linen discover'd it soon after this, and I was search'd in two or three days after this.</p>
<p>Court. You must speak the truth, here is a man's life at stake ?</p>
<p>M. Craggs. It will do me no good if I was to speak ill of him.</p>
<p>Cross Examin'd.</p>
<p>Q. Was there a window in this house that look'd towards the street?</p>
<p>M. Craggs. Yes, sir.</p>
<p>Q. Why did not you cry out, that the neighbours might come to your assistance?</p>
<p>M. Craggs. He said if I cry'd out he would lick me.</p>
<p>Q. Could you think your mother would beat you for going to do so heinous a thing?</p>
<p>M. Craggs. I did not know what to think; I did not know better then, sir.</p>
<p>Q. Can you remember this very particularly, it being so long ago?</p>
<p>M. Craggs. Yes, sir, I can.</p>
<p>Q. Why did not you get up?</p>
<p>M. Craggs. I could not get up, he lay upon me; and when my mother came to the door he got off me.</p>
<p>Q. Had he not unbolted the door till then?</p>
<p>M. Craggs. No, sir.</p>
<p>Q. What did your mother say when he unbolted the door ?</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174901130009"/>M. Croggs. Says my mother, what do you bolt the door for? said he, to keep the cold weather out; for it snow'd bitterly that day.</p>
<p>Mrs. Mears. I am a widow to a surgeon and apothecary, the child had a weakness, but I know nothing how it came; the child might be hurt, the private parts were a little sore, and there was a redness upon the parts.</p>
<p>Q. Did you observe the skin?</p>
<p>Mrs. Mears. Really I cannot say.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see her linen?</p>
<p>Mrs. Mears. Yes, there seemed to be something of a bad colour, I gave the child physick, and it did her service.</p>
<p>Q. Did you apply any plaisters?</p>
<p>Mrs. Mears. No, sir.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. I never touched the girl, or moved out of my chair, but sat by the fire till her mother return'd, and I staid about half an hour after she came in: I met her father two or three days after in Wapping, he spoke friendly to me as usual, and about six weeks after I saw the mother going by my hatch; I said to her, how do you do? she said, never the better for such a rogue as you; said I, for what? she said, you have used my child ill, she forc'd herself into my house, and I bid her go about her business, or I should make her.</p>

He called for a tankard of beer, paid for it; company being in the fore room, he desired to go into another, near the kitchen, joining the fire place: The boy brought him a tankard of beer, he said the gentleman was mistaken in the sign, where they were to meet. He desir'd the boy to go over the way, to the Bell and ask for one Hambleton; the boy went and came back again, and said, there was no such person there, and observed the prisoner drinking out of a pewter tankard. The boy came to me, and told me what he saw, and that the silver tankard was not in sight; I suppose the prisoner might overhear this. When I went into the room, I found he had his beer in the silver tankard; says I, have not you got a pewter tankard about you? He gave me but a slight answer; at last I found it concealed in an apron tuck'd about his waist. I shewed it to the gentlemen in the house, and observ'd it to be wet; I asked him how he came by it; he told me, he was a pewterer and made it himself. I believe, my lord, he did design to make an exchange with me.</p>

He said it was very well. He then bid me go to one Mrs. Skedny's, a chandler's shop, and ask for the same man; I went accordingly, but she knew no such person. When I came back, I saw him drinking out of a pewter tankard, and the silver one was not to be seen. I told my master there was a pewter tankard on the table.

I bought the pewter tankard of a woman in the street, she had a basket on her arm, and the tankard hanging on her finger, I was willing to try if it was measure; so before I drank, I pour'd out the beer into my pewter tankard; this gentleman comes and says, friend, I understand you have got a pewter tankard about you. Yes, says I, I have bought one to day; says he, my friend, it looks as though you had a design to make an exchange with me. I am no such man, says I; then the people got up in arms, and went for a constable, that is the whole affair.</p>

We lodg'd together about three weeks; there we mustered up as much money as we could, and got Portugal Gold, and began to clip and file them; when we chang'd them Portugal pieces, then we got guineas; those that were not touch'd before, where we could take any off, we clipped and filed.</p>
<p>Q. Did the prisoner at the bar clip or file any pieces of gold?</p>
<p>Coffe. He did, my Lord, both guineas and Portugal pieces; I saw him do it, he worked at the same table I was at. We continued at this place three weeks, or thereabouts; then we remov'd from thence to one Grant's, at the duke of Cumberland's head, in the Butcher Row; we lodged in a two pair of stairs room, and there followed the same business to file and clip guineas and Portugal gold.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see him diminish guineas in this way?</p>
<p>Coffe. I saw him clip and file both there. We continued there between three weeks and a month; during which time, we continued to clip and file guineas and Portugal gold. We remov'd from thence to one Todd's in Hemlock court, Cary-street. We remained there about a month, and all that time we continued filing guineas, and thirty-six shilling pieces. We remov'd after to little Wild-street, to one Mr. Cooper's, and continued there about a month; there we carry'd on the same practice. We remov'd from that place to one Greenhill's, a peruke maker in Bread-street, in the city, we continued there about three weeks, or a month; there we continued filing and clipping guineas and Portugal pieces; we filed there as many guineas as we could get for our use. We came next to Salisbury court, in Fleet-street, to the house of Mr. Woodall; I saw the prisoner there file and clip guineas and Portugal gold; we staid there about fourteen nights. From thence we went to Mrs. Smart's in Dorset court, Fleet-street; there we filed guineas and Portugal gold.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see him file and clip guineas there?</p>
<p>Coffe. Yes, my Lord, I did.</p>
<p>Q. How long did you continue there?</p>
<p>Coffe. From the 1st of July, to the 6th of Sept. Mrs. Smart asked the prisoner, what business he was of? he said a doctor.</p>
<p>Q. What was done in pursuance of that, as a doctor?</p>
<p>Coffe. Nothing at all, he had a few bottles in a cupboard. All I know of, he had a man came once who had the foul disease, and he gave him some receipts to cure it.</p>
<p>Q. Was there no salves prepar'd on Mrs. Smart's fire?</p>
<p>Coffe. We took a crucible and put the clippings and filings of gold into it, then we put in some salt peter to it, then put it into the fire till it was melted.</p>
<p>Q. Did that require much blowing with bellows?</p>
<p>Coffe. Not much with a good and proper fire; but in a kitchen fire it would require much blowing.</p>
<p>Q. What do you know of melting of gold at Mrs. Smart's?</p>
<p>Coffe. Mr. Gahagan pretended it was salve for a person's sore leg,

<p>Q. What did you do when it was melted?</p>
<p>Coffe. We put the crucible into water to cool it, and then turned it down, and threw out the lump of gold.</p>
<p>Q. Was the prisoner at the bar concerned in this?</p>
<p>Coffe. Yes, he put the gold into the crucible, and then put the crucible into the fire; I took it out of the fire, and he was standing by, after that we carry'd it to Mr. Scott, the refiner.</p>
<p>Q. Which of you carry'd it there?</p>
<p>Coffe. Mr. Gahagan and I generally went there.</p>
<p>Q. Did you go together?</p>
<p>Coffe. No, my Lord, but he went several times and accounted it to me. We used to have an essay made of it.</p>
<p>Q. What rooms had the prisoner and you at Mrs. Smart's?</p>
<p>Coffe. A parlour and a bed chamber, the bed chamber looked backwards, the other towards Dorset Court.</p>
<p>Q. In which of those rooms did you commonly file the gold?</p>
<p>Coffe. In the bed chamber.</p>
<p>Q. Did Mrs. Smart continue to let you melt in her kitchen?</p>
<p>Coffe. No, she charged us two-pence per week for coals, and upon that we did not melt there any more; then we melted in our parlour. A book was put into his hand.</p>
<p>Q. Look at this book, and see what it is, and whose writing?</p>
<p>Coffe. The first leaf is the prisoner at the bar's writing.</p>
<p>Q. Look at the particular leaves that are marked with red ink; he looked on one leaf, this is my writing, another the same, another the same, another

<p>Q. Explain that.</p>
<p>Coffe. There is 18 guineas and half, moidores three, Ports. 19 l. 16 s. that is eleven 36 pieces. This is a memorandum to see what money we had in our hands. Here is Mr. Scott, July 11, 1748.</p>

<p>June 12th, 2 2 0.</p>
<p>That is money receiv'd of Mr. Scott, for melted gold; we put the money we had into a common stock till I was committed, and it happened I had eleven 36 pieces, and he had twenty.</p>
<p>Q. How did you get this gold?</p>
<p>Coffe. We chang'd guineas for 36 pieces with pawnbrokers, we were afraid of doing this at the bank.</p>
<p>Q. How did you manage your window, to prevent being overlooked?</p>
<p>Coffe. We shut up one half of the shutters, and got the window a row above, and a row below blinded with gum'd paper, so we had the middle for light.</p>
<p>Q. Did you take care to secure your door?</p>
<p>Coffe. When we filed we generally did.</p>
<p>Q. Pray what had you per ounce for melted gold?</p>
<p>Coffe. Three pound seventeen shillings and six-pence.</p>
<p>Q. Had not you various pieces?</p>
<p>Coffe. Only one, that was when we was in Bow-lane; in melting, Mr. Gahagan there melted a farthing with the gold filings, &c. and then we had a lower price for it.</p>
<p>Q. How long have you been in England?</p>
<p>Coffe. Betwixt six and seven years; I have been acquainted with the prisoner in Ireland, ever since I was a boy.</p>
<p>Q. Who came to England first?</p>
<p>Coffe. I was two or three years before I saw him here; my last acquaintance has been but four years, but have not been concerned in clipping and filing gold, till within this twelve month.</p>
<p>Q. Did you advise him, or he you?</p>
<p>Coffe. He was very willing to come into it, when he found the profit arising from it; I first propos'd this trade to him.</p>
<p>Q. Was there any windows at this last mention'd place that overlooked you?</p>
<p>Coffe. Yes, for that reason we blinded part of our windows; but yet I believe it was possible to overlook us.</p>
<p>Q. Was Mr. Fretwell with you?</p>
<p>Coffe. He was acquainted with the prisoner and I both; my first acquaintance with him was at the Bank.</p>
<p>Cross examin'd.</p>
<p>Q. Have not you within this four or five months made solemn declarations that you knew nothing of this matter?</p>
<p>Coffe. When I was taken and brought before the Lord Mayor I said so; I think every person on such occasions will make the greatest denial as is possible, this was after I was taken; I did not make any discovery before.</p>
<p>Prisoner. On what occasion did you come to lodge with me, in Cary-street?</p>
<p>Coffe. I had made my escape from the bailiff, &c.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Did not you take water every day to go to Bow-lane?</p>
<p>Coffe. No, not every day.</p>
<p>Prisoner. What was your business to Mrs. Rutherford ?</p>
<p>Coffe. I will not tell you.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Did not you file Portugal pieces there?</p>
<p>Coffe. Yes I did, and you too.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Did not you say to Mr. Fretwell, don't on any account let Gahagan know of this business?</p>
<p>Coffe. Yes I did, and that was by your own order.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Do you know one Mr. Darling a silversmith?</p>
<p>Coffe. Yes I do.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Did not you go by the name of Foster to that man?</p>
<p>Coffe. I did tell him that was my name.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Did not you write a note to Mr. Scott, and figmit, J. Foster ?</p>
<p>Coffe. Yes I did, and for this reason, I saw people's names in his book as it lay on the counter, and I did not care people should see my name in the book, and to find me out.</p>

<p>Fretwell. Yes, he made application to me about the latter end of July, for thirty-six shilling pieces, and brought me guineas and silver in exchange.</p>
<p>Q. Relate the particulars?</p>
<p>Fretwell. After he had made application to me
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174901130013"/> two or three times; I had a suspicion of his conduct, and I was influenced by his desire to go to the Cross-keys tavern, to drink a glass of wine with him there. Coffe introduced me into the company of the prisoner, the prisoner there pull'd out a counterfeit guinea; he then seemed to be acquainted with Mr. Coffe, and he made one of our company in this conversation, at first I took the counterfeit guinea to be a good one, till I took it to the threshold of the door and rubbed it thereon, then I saw it to be bad. Mr. Coffe told me, he should have occasion to be troublesome to me for a fortnight or three weeks, to send such pieces to Ireland, as long as his commission should last; he said, he was allowed so much per cent. and so much a grain, for all that were over and above a nine-penny weight. The prisoner was present when he mentioned this commission, and heard this conversation. Coffe wanted to have nine guineas exchanged.</p>
<p>Q. Did Coffe open himself farther to you?</p>
<p>Fretwell. He told me he should be glad to be acquainted with me, and if I would take a ride out on sunday morning, he would find me a horse; I thank'd him, and seemed to acquiesce &c. that I might be the better able to make a discovery, but did not ride out with him; then he apply'd another time for our meeting, and it was a day or two after at the Crown tavern behind the Change. The same evening we met at the Cross-keys, and from thence we went to the Crown tavern; we there drank some tent wine, and there he said to me, you gentleman do not chuse trouble, for meerly a glass of wine, it will be more acceptable to have a small present; and if you will supply me with such thirty-six shilling pieces as suit my commission, I will assure you ten pounds a year, but he thought to make it fifteen. I thanked him, and seemed to acquiesce; the next morning I discover'd the whole affair to the proper person at the Bank, who allow'd me to acquiesce in every thing, in order to come at a discovery; then I had directions to let him have whatever he came for; he or the prisoner would come every day, and sometimes oftner. The prisoner at the b ar came generally after Mr. Coffe, sometimes a little before; one would ask me if I had seen the other; I have delivered 36 s. pieces, and 3 l. 12 s. such they commonly asked for, to each of them; then after this, Mr. Coffe and I took a walk together round by London-spaw; and as we came over Clarkenwell-green, I said to Mr. Coffe, I suppose those persons must file them, &c. Says Coffe, what is that to me, provided I have my commission; says I, they must get a good deal of money; he asked me where I would spend the evening; I reply'd at the Crown tavern near Cripplegate; when we came there, he asked for French wine, and ordered a waiter to bring in a pen, ink and paper. Now, says he, about what you and I were talking coming over Clarkenwell-green; he there calculated how much might be got, if they reduced them to nine penny weight; provided a man did but one hundred a day, it would amount to 968 l. odd shillings per year; he added, it was a charming thing, a man, said he, could get an estate in a hurry, provided he could get it done privately; but says he, I should be very cautious how I enter into such a state, I am as eager of gain as any body. I sat still seemingly to smile at him, fearing to give him room to think I designed to make a discovery. I ask'd him how many a man could file in a day, says he, I don't know, no more than the man in the moon. Says he, did you ever see jewellers file rings? they have, says he, a leather to catch their filings, &c. then they put the filings into a crucible, and melt it in a solid lump, then carry it to a goldsmith, and they will buy it; he began to be more free, and told me he thought a man could do two hundred in a day; says I, I have nothing against that proposal, could you get a man to do it? yes, says he, I know a man that is under obligations to me, who would be glad of it; when will you set about it, said I? in about a week's time, said he, as soon as I can get conveniences for a man. After this he came to me, likewise the prisoner, but not together. I inspected into the money. I receiv'd of each of them, and amongst the money I took of the prisoner, I found a guinea appeared to be fresh filed; I shewed it to our gentlemen, and they ordered me to take care of it.</p>
<p>Q. How much does it want of the true weight?</p>
<p>Fretwell. About eight grains, value 16 pence.</p>
<p>Cross examin'd.</p>
<p>Q. How many times might Coffe come to you before you saw the prisoner?</p>
<p>Fretwell. The first time I drank a glass of wine with Coffe, the prisoner was there.</p>
<p>Q. Whether after you had been at the tavern, the prisoner was not ordered to withdraw?</p>
<p>Fretwell. No, not one moment.</p>
<p>Q. Was the prisoner at the Crown tavern with you?</p>
<p>Fretwell. No.</p>
<p>Q. Was the prisoner with you on Clarkenwell-green ?</p>
<p>Fretwell. No.</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174901130014"/>Prisoner. When I came to you, did I not say I came from Mr. Coffe ?</p>
<p>Fretwell. Yes sometimes.</p>
<p>Mrs. Smart. I know the prisoner at the bar, he came to lodge with me the first of July; I live in Dorset-court, in Salisbury-court; he and Coffe continued there till Coffe was taken up. The prisoner pretended to be a physician, but we took them both at first to be lawyers clarks.</p>
<p>Q. Did any body apply to the prisoner as a Physician?</p>
<p>Smart. I don't know that any body did; on the 9th of July, he said he wanted to melt some salve for a person's fore leg, and asked if we had a fire below in the kitchen; he brought down a thing I cannot swear what; he put it into the fire and cover'd it with coals; then they blowed to it, and made it red hot. Then they quench'd it in water, and they ask'd me for a hammer to break it; I having a pestle lent them that, then they carry'd it up stairs into their own apartment and broke it there. I said I hoped this will not be done often, the prisoner said the fore leg might be well in about a fortnight or three weeks time; they did not make use of my kitchen fire after this. I could hear them in their room a blowing very hard with bellows, but they always fastened their door. I have also heard a small noise, I took it to be like washing in a bason; I have since supposed it might be filing.</p>
<p>Q. Where do you live?</p>
<p>Smart. In Dorset-court Salisbury-court, Coffe and the prisoner lodged together with me; when the door was fastened, they were all three together, the other person was named Conner; they were all three in my kitchen when they melted at my fire, what they call'd salve.</p>
<p>Q. How do the windows of the two rooms look which they had?</p>
<p>Smart. The parlour looks into the court, and the bed chamber looks to the back of Bridewell.</p>
<p>Q. What windows overlook theirs?</p>
<p>Smart. There is Mr. Philips's warehouse, and Mr. Dell's, so that out of each warehouse with a clear light a person may see into the prisoner's room.</p>
<p>Q. Which room did they make a fire in?</p>
<p>Smart. The parlour that looks into the court.</p>
<p>Q. In which room did you hear that noise like washing?</p>
<p>Smart. In the bed chamber, that looks towards Mr. Dell's warehouse.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know any thing of blinding those windows?</p>
<p>Smart. I did it at the prisoner's request; there was an inside shutter; he said he might want to put on a clean shirt; says I, there is an inside shutter, the window is three squares of glass each way. I blinded the bottom row, some of them blinded the upper row.</p>
<p>Q. Do you think it was possible after this, for a person in Mr. Dell's warehouse, to see into this room?</p>
<p>Smart. Yes, sir, I suppose he might</p>
<p>Q. What persons frequented their company while they lodged there with you?</p>
<p>Smart. The chief persons were one Daff, and one Mr. Conner, and rarely any body else</p>
<p>Q. Who were the three persons chiefly together?</p>
<p>Smart. Mr. Gahagan, Mr. Coffe, and Mr. Conner.</p>
<p>Cross examin'd.</p>
<p>Q. Who came to take the lodgings of you?</p>
<p>Smart. Mr. Gahagan and Mr. Coffe.</p>
<p>Q. Had that stuff that was on the fire a nauseous smell or not?</p>
<p>Smart. No, sir.</p>
<p>Q. Did you before my Lord Mayor say any thing of a pot a melting? &c.</p>
<p>Smart. No, I believe not, I am not certain.</p>
<p>Q. Had not you something in a physical way of the prisoner?</p>
<p>Smart. I told him once I was not very well, and he asked me if I would have some of Stoughton's drops in a glass of water.</p>
<p>Q. How do you know they always fasten'd their door?</p>
<p>Spark. I have often heard them fasten it, but I never tried to open it; and I never went into the room but when they call'd me.</p>
<p>Q. How far is it from Mr. Dell's warehouse to their window?</p>
<p>Smart. Not above five yards, I believe Mr. Dell's warehouse window is higher than theirs.</p>
<p>Q. Did not two men go yesterday to take the dimensions of the window, and you refused to let them?</p>
<p>Smart. My sister saw them, they told her who they came from; she said they had had trouble enough about the prisoners. I don't know they asked to go into the yard.</p>

I have windows directly over against Mrs. Smart's house, and in the beginning of August last, I saw the prisoner at the bar and two other men; I thought they had been jewellers for some time; I used to say frequently in the coffee-house, there was a
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174901130015"/> set of people over against my warehouse, are either jewellers or lapidaries, they used to sit round a table, with each a sheet of white paper under their work. I took a little more observation; I went to an acquaintance to borrow a glass, but did not get one to observe their work; there were two or three gentlemen with me in my warehouse, and we made a tube of our hands holding them to our eyes to contract the rays of light, and I plainly saw Portugal money; I saw a moidore in the prisoner's hand, there they would work it on the flat, then of the edge with a motion like filing them; I have seen them weigh them with their hand, and give them from one to another; I took notice of it very frequently: the latter end of Aug. I went into the country, when I came back, I said, are these people at work still? their windows were paper'd up as Mrs. Smart described; I have seen them often at work in their shirts sitting in their bed with paper under their hands; I have seen the money lie on heaps round; I could not distinguish any other than 3 l. 12 s. and 36 s. pieces.</p>
<p>Q. How far is it from your warehouse to their window?</p>
<p>Dell. I believe it is about 14 foot.</p>
<p>Cross examined.</p>
<p>Q. What time of the day did you make this observation?</p>
<p>Dell. Sometimes at eleven, twelve, or two. I saw the filings at last, and saw them wrap them up carefully; one of them used to sit side ways to me, which I believe to be the prisoner at the bar.</p>
<p>Q. How came it, you did not give information before?</p>
<p>Dell. I spoke of them to several gentlemen at the coffee house and places where I went, and some of my customers I took up to see them at work; and a gentleman to whom I had told it, happened to be at the Bank the time one of them was taken: Says he, this is the very man my neighbour was speaking of, and came directly to me, &c.</p>
<p>Q. If you had met the Prisoner at the Change, should you have known him?</p>
<p>Dell. Yes, sir, although I never was in his company, I have seen him often, and I knew him when in prison, without being told; I told the person that was with me, they need not shew me any farther, for I had seen one of these men.</p>
<p>Q. Did you know Coffe before?</p>
<p>Dell. I saw him many times before in the yard, and knew him well.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Did you see us round a table in the room?</p>
<p>Dell. There generally lay three sheets of white paper on the table, and three men sitting over them working.</p>
<p>Q. To Mrs. Smart. How far is it from the window to the bed?</p>
<p>Smart. Just room to go by, but the bed turn'd up and they had frequently a table by the window.</p>

I am employ'd as porter of the mint; I happen'd to be one day at Mr. Scott's the refiner, and observed him to have several small pieces of gold like a button that had been melted down in a crucible; I suspected some unlawful proceedings in those who brought it there to sell. He upon my declaring my suspicion gave me leave to attend there, which I did several times. There came Mr. Coffe and Mr. Gahagan the prisoner, and sold gold, and I said before him to Mr. Scott, there is a great deal of gold coin fil'd; we are in great hopes of coming up with those money filers. Another time being there, the prisoner came to sell some more gold; I repeated much the same; after he was gone, I said to Mr. Scott that as he heard there were means using to detect such persons, and he coming again, it seemed to imply to me he was not one of the sort; I saw no more of him till Mr. Coffe was taken, which was the 6th of Sept. Hearing Coffe was taken; I took a constable and went to Mrs. Foster's house in Bow-lane. Upon coming there, they told me there was no such woman in the house; I said I must see all the lodgers in the house, and in a one pair of stairs room, I saw Mrs. Foster, who, when I came to take hold of her, said, her name was

I did find two days after in their apartment a bit of a file with the filings of gold in the teeth of it, and a bit of gold clipping from off some gold coin; it appears to me to be a bit of a guinea; in their chimney there were many bits of broken crucibles of the small sort and some filings of gold. On the 29th of October, Mr. Cook the solicitor of the Mint sent me word, there had been a person with him to give him notice where Mr. Gahagan was secreted: On the next day, I and three other persons went to a place call'd Chalk Farm under Primrose hill; I went into the house, and saw the prisoner and Conner sitting by the fire; I took
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174901130016"/> hold of the prisoner and ordered the constable to take hold of Conner, which he did; I took them to London, and the Justice committed them to New-prison. I found 13 guineas in the prisoner's pocket; I weigh'd them and return'd him ten which were what we call full weight, the other three were not. I have them here sealed up with Mr. Gahagan's seal and mine [they were open'd and shew'd in court] one wants three grains and half, another six grains, the other eleven and half, in value one is wanting seven-pence, the other one shilling, and the other one shilling and eleven-pence. [A pocket book was put into his hand].</p>
<p>Q. What do you know of this book?</p>
<p>Sandal. This very book I took out of Conner's pocket; he went then for the prisoner's servant; he desired it again, saying there was in it some memorandums of the linen sent to the washerwoman, &c. but by looking I found it might be of use here, so I took it into my possession, and Mr. Scot's apprentice can speak particularly to some of the contents of it.</p>
<p>Cross examin'd.</p>
<p>Q. When did you search him?</p>
<p>Sandal. Immediately in the kitchen.</p>
<p>Q. Pray may not the honestest man in the world have two or three guineas in such a quantity under weight?</p>
<p>Sandal. I do not think it impossible.</p>

<p>Q. How long did he continue to come there?</p>
<p>Destine. I cannot exactly tell; he and Coffe us'd to come together; I have bought gold of them, sometimes an ounce, sometimes more.</p>
<p>Q. In what shape was the gold?</p>

<p>Q. to Coffe. Look into this book for the prisoner's hand writing. [He looks at a leaf.] This is the prisoner's writing. [It was shew'd to Mr. Destine.]</p>

<p>Prisoner's Defence. When Coffe came first to me he pull'd out a lump of gold; says I, how do you come by it, it is like a button? says he, I got it of one Foster a goldsmith in the country, adding he had sold a great quantity for him; in about 7 or eight days after, he produc'd another of the same kind, and said it was worth 7 l. says he, as you have some business at the Admiralty, and I am under a cloud, if you will take Love-lane in your way, there you will find one Mr. Scott a refiner; accordingly he wrap'd it up, and I call'd in his name with it to sell; I was answer'd his name was Foster: said I, it is not, it is Coffe: this was the first way I was brought in, he came eight or ten times to desire me to do this for him; at last he was retaken, for he had run away from the Bailiffs before, so I ceas'd going to Scott's: this is what I meant by telling Mr. Sandal he made a cat's paw of me; on this we chang'd lodgings, because he would not be found out. When we were in Bread-street he said to me, was you ever at the Bank of England? do you know the nature of it? it is worth your curiosity to go. As he fear'd trouble I comply'd: he gave me 18 l. some gold and some silver to go to one Mr. Fretwell, which I did, and I told him I came from Mr. Coffe; I not knowing the hours, came there too late; I return'd and told him, and after I was well inform'd as to that, he said I must go there for him pretty often until he could make it up with his creditor; and, says he, as you go that way, you may give him a guinea, and it may be, he will be kept off in that manner. Thus he made use of me to go 5 or 6 times for him to the Bank; I gave him in the whole 5 guineas: I believe the gentleman always made an entry of it; and when I found he was released from the distress he lay under from Mr. Burt, I went no more: As to my manner of living, when I came first here, I liv'd with Mr. Ansel in Gray's-inn, and acted there as a clerk; then I undertook to translate Mr. Pope's Essay on Man into Latin; this I did by direction, and I frequently got money thus for a twelvemonth. To account for my absconding. I was coming through Paul's church-yard and met one Clayton, who told me Coffe was in Newgate; and, says he, as you are a lodger, perhaps there may be a watching for you; and you will, says he, be put to a great deal of expence, if they should take you into custody; upon this I withdrew a night or two from my lodgings; and when I found they were broke open, then I absconded, and in three week's time I found my name in the Gazette. Now, as to my witnesses, if your Lordship pleases, I'll call them.</p>
<p>Bernard Hanley. I heard Mr. Coffe say in the presence of Mr. Dalton, and another that is lying ill and cannot come to give evidence, that he would undergo a thousand deaths rather than subject any innocent blood to be spilt on this occasion; he took a book out of his pocket and swore upon it, that he never intended to turn king's evidence in prejudice of either of those, declaring the prisoner innocent; and he added, as he did expect to be at his liberty he would follow the same practice as before: this was in Newgate before the others were removed from New Prison; they were then in Clerkenwell; I am an Irishman, and have been in England about three years?</p>

<p>For want of room in the Paper I shall refer the Reader to the Witnesses in Gahagan's Trial, with the little additions here respecting the Prisoner.</p>
<p>Coffe depos'd he saw him at Mrs. Smart's with his own hands file and lighten guineas, and that himself and Gahagan taught him bow to do it; and although he did not lodge in their apartment, yet he came every day, except one he was not well, and he was lock'd up in their room, and did work with them in lightening guineas and other money; that his chief Instruments were a knife and an engraven that at melting, what Mrs. Smart call'd Salve in her kitchen, Conner and himself did blow the fire, and when he went abroad to change the money away, they used to allow him for his expence, and also to buy him cloaths and pay his rent; but Gahagan and himself were Partners in the profit, and allowed the prisoner at discretion, and that Duff was never at their lodgings in Mrs. Smart's house; but

<p>Mr. Fretwell depos'd, that the prisoner apply'd to him two or three times for Portugal pieces and brought silver in exchange; after that he refus'd serving him; then the prisoner apply'd to Mr. Welch, and his suspicion arose from seeing him and Gahagan walking together near Stock's market.</p>

I am a teller at the Bank of England; Mr. Fretwell once refus'd changing the prisoner's silver, and he apply'd to me and I serv'd him several times; he generally came for seven or eight Portugal pieces, and in exchange brought silver; he us'd to take particular notice of the 36 s. pieces, and gave me several back, which gave me a suspicion; he has ask'd me several times to go to the tavern; I apply'd to our principal officer, and he advis'd me to go with him to see if I could make any thing of him; I went twice, I told him he put them to a bad use; but his answer was, he sent them over to Ireland to his brother, and sold them for forty shillings a piece; I told him it was very unlikely to send six or seven at a time: after I had tax'd him about filing them, said he, if I knew the art I would not be honester than they that did; but after that he came no more.</p>
<p>Mr. Dell depos'd he saw three persons sitting at a table at work in filing and the like, as before, but could not swear to the Prisoner's face, but said the third person was a tall man (as the prisoner was ) but being tall as he sat, the upper part of the window being blinded, with the place where he sat he could not come at a sight of his face, although he had tried hard so to do.</p>

<p>Prisoner's Defence. Mr. Gahagan desired I would dispose of his translation of Mr. Pope's Essays on Man, and I went to several noblemen who were very generous to me for them; I have from several brought Mr. Gahagan a guinea, or a guinea and a half; I was allow'd to drink a pint of beer and other expences, that I might attend it, which may be a sufficient reason for my having money about me sometimes; and when I went to the
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174901130019"/> Bank of England for 36 s. pieces, I was sent by Mr. Gahagan, who told me it was by Coffe's direction, and I ask'd for such in Coffe's name: and as to what Mr. Welch said to me about fileing the money I took it to be in a joaking way, and says I in the same way, I will not set up for more honestly than other people, saying, if I knew how to do it I would. My lord, please to ask Mr. Welch whether he did or did not talk in this funny way?</p>
<p>Welch to the Q. No, sir, it was not.</p>
<p>Prisoner continues. Mrs. Smart said she saw me blowing the fire; Mr. Coffe call'd me into the kitchen, and said, for God's sake blow the fire, for I am quite in a flame: I took the bellows and blow'd some time: as for the book, he took it out of my pocket; it was in my hands but sometimes; I had it to take an account of the washerwoman's work; it never was in my hands but on such occasions, and what they had wrote in the book I do not know.</p>
