I saw the prisoner shift his place, and go to the other end of the box; a little after says Mrs. Thomas , I have lost a tankard: the prisoner was gone. We immediately divided ourselves and went out to see for him. We got a constable and searched houses of bad repute; coming back again, we saw two soldiers in the house come to inquire if Mr. Thomas had not lost such a mug .</p>

<p>Q. Are you sure you gave the prisoner a wound with your sword?</p>
<p>Short . My sword met with a small resistance, I thought at first it had past betwixt his arm and body , but on examining him we found it had made a slight wound, and passed betwixt his skin and his ribs. I held my sword a long time in order to save what I had about me; the prisoner at the bar said, will he not part with his sword? Cut his arm off; I let it go immediately after. I heard one of them say, away, away, they went off, and I followed them about 300 yards down Brownlow-street . I advertised my sword with a reward, and the same day there was a hat advertised, and a person taken; I went to Justice Fielding to see the hat, and found it to be my own; I knew it by a remarkable button; when I had it edged I had this button, the same as on my coat, put on it, (being a gilt button) the Justice appointed a time to have the prisoner brought up. I went, the prisoner confest the fact, and also that he broke off the hilt of my sword; and put it in his pocket, and had lost it; he had on, I believe, the same clothes when he robbed me he has on now.</p>

I am watchman in Great Wild-street; there are two houses in my watch I had orders to be very careful of, where two or three attempts had been made to break in, &c. On the 20th of January at night, at eleven I found all safe, near twelve at one of these houses I found. by trying it with my staff, the door was open; I rushed in directly, I had a hanger by my side, and alarmed the house; the gentleman looked out of the window and asked who is that? said I, the watchman; I looked about and examined all backwards, the person came down and we found all safe; when I came into the yard, I heard a voice saying, is that the watchman? I said, yes; said she, it was my mistake that the door was left open. [this proved to be wise to the prisoner at the bar.] I left all right at twelve; I sat at my stand till almost two; there came two tall men and a little man after them; I had a suspicion of them; they seemed to shun my lanthorn; I crossed the opposite side, then the clock struck two; I called the hour the contrary way, and looked over my shoulder to watch their motions; I kept calling the hour down Little Wild-street; I came round to an obscure place, then I saw a man moving; when I came up to him I saw three men, one of which proved to be the prisoner, stand rapping at the back door, where I alarmed the people before; said I, good morning to you, gentlemen; they said to me, good morrow: I went on crying the hour into Great Wild-street , in order to see for some assistance; I found they continued at the door; I found my partner, and told him I had a house beset; we went directly; I sent him one way, and I went another; I told him when I saw the light of his candle I'd approach, by this means we should see them, let them move off which way they would; when I saw his light I drew my hanger, and flung my lanthorn with my staff in my other hand; as I advanced, a man came to me and said,
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174902220004"/> let me light my candle. I said, show me where you live, or you shall not ; he goes to pass me; I gave him a flat touch with my hanger over his arm ; he turned very pale and retreated back; as he retreated I kept up to him till he came to the prisoner at the bar; he put the candlestick into the prisoner's hand; says the prisoner, why don't you go to your lodgings? a second time he said the same; while I was looking at the prisoner, my partner had got him by the belt, his accomplice gave me a blow on the arm and pushed by me; I pursued him with the cry, Stop thief! down Great Wild-street ; I turned back again to see how it fared with my partner, and he had then got hold of the prisoner by the arm, saying to him, as he is gone you shall go; by the light of my lanthorn I saw a hanger hang down by the calf of his left leg, my partner took it away directly; the door was open, the prisoner retreated back quite into the yard ; I said to him, I will cut your hand off if you offer to stir an inch. While we were disputing down dropp'd a pistol from him; I took it up and held it towards his head, and said I would blow his brains out, if he stirr'd or made any motion to put his hand to his body. Presently another pistol dropt from under his clothes; then he very readily said, I will go along with you: As we were going down the court, I had the two pistols in my hands; he told me they were loaded, and begged I would take care of them; we went on, and I held them to him, telling him what he must expect if he offered to stir from us; we came to another watchman and desired his assistance. I gave one of the pistols to one of the watchmen; so we went to St. Giles's watch-house; we delivered the pistols and the hanger to the constable of the night.</p>
<p>Q. Did you know that he lodged at that house?</p>
<p>Taylor. No, my Lord. The constable searched the prisoner and took out of his pocket two powder horns, a bullet mould, and a screw-driver; the Monday following his landlady was at the Justice's house; she said to me after he was committed, for God's sake go along with me and move their goods, for they shall not be in my house; so I and my partner went, and took out a bed, 3 chairs, and a great bundle of other things, &c. in moving the bed we found a gold laced hat, which was advertised, and Mr. Short has swore to.</p>

<p>Wilkinson.

I was by. He said he was indebted to his landlady fourpence halfpeny for gin , and he had left them with her; then the gentlewoman of the house said she would go with him ; and then he said he had pawned them for eighteen pence. I was for having a man to go with him; says he, no man shall go with you; but we ordered it so, that a man walked behind cassey and me, and he did not perceive it. We went into St. Giles's; he went to his lodgings there, and he desired the man's daughter to go and get them; he had given them to her to pawn; she said she would not get them without the money, saying she had two shillings and sixpence upon them; cassey said she had but one shilling and sixpence; then he said they were pawn'd to a woman that was in Bridewell. We took cassey a day or two after before the Justice; he said he sold the handkerchief for three pence; but at first he said it was pick'd out of his pocket. I have nothing to say against the woman at the bar, any farther, than cassey said she forced him to steal them: she did own she had sixpence of the money. cassey staid at his lodgings, and the woman went for the things, and I owned them at first sight.</p>

<p>Q. Give us an account what happened on the thirteenth of January last.</p>
<p>Wood . The deceased and I had been out together, about eight o'clock, concerning the Duke of Cumberland's work; we was going home at about eleven at night; he said to me, you shall go home and lie along with me to night, then we will get up together in the morning, and go to work. He lodg'd in Chandois-Street ; we went that way, to go to Mr. Young's to get a light to light me up to the room, I being a stranger, but Mr. Young was gone to bed. In our return coming up again, at a corner of a passage called

I walked foremost; and whether the deceased kick'd his foot against a stone, or whether against Mr. Blare's foot, I do not know, but he had like to have fallen down. There were words arose, such as d - n you, and d - n you, but no blows struck on either side. We went on about one hundred and fifty, or two hundred yards, the deceased stopp'd there; says he, I'll go back, and ask the gentleman why he insults me thus. Going along the street, we returned back to the passage where we first had the words; there was Mr. Blare standing in the middle of the passage; then William Howard said to him as I said before, putting his hands by his sides , What is the reason why I am to be insulted in this manner as I am going along the streets? The gentleman made no answer as I remember, but knocked at the door in this passage immediately; this door is about four or five yards from the street where we first found him standing; as soon as he knocked at the door, there came down a person in officer's clothes, [since I suppose it to have been Captain

Said I, you don't do right in collaring my friend; you look like a gentleman, and if you will behave as such, I'll give you a reason why we came back, and if he is in fault we will ask your pardon; before I had got the last word out of my mouth he struck at my partner, and I catched the blow, so it did but just touch his face; this was with his fist: as soon as I let go his hand he repeated his blow upon the deceased, then the fray began; he did not let go the deceased's collar, there were several blows struck. I went back to the door where Campbel came out; I received several blows during this time, but I do not know from whom; I had been knocked down twice, rising the second time I saw two naked swords, or one sword and a hanger, come down stairs; upon seeing them I thought proper to run for assistance to the watch-house: I went to the door, and told them if they did not come to the assistance of a man he would be immediately killed.</p>
<p>Q. How far is the watch-house off from that place?</p>
<p>Wood . It may be about 100 yards; they asked me if I knew the man; I said he was my fellow-

There was the constable of the night and a plaisterer came to our assistance; in our return we saw the deceased, lying between the place where it first begun and the Roundhouse, on his belly, with his hat and wig off; that was much about the middle betwixt where the quarrel began in St. Martin's lane and the Roundhouse. I went immediately to him, and asked him how he did? and all the words he ever spoke after were, O dear Ned! then Mr. Benson the plaisterer turned him on his back, saying, what poor Will Howard. Benson and I took him up and carried him into the watch-house; somebody pulled up his shirt, and I saw a wound on the right side of his body: Mr. Benson ran for a surgeon, one Mr. Perkins; when he returned, the constable, and he and I, and one or more of the watchmen, went to the house to see after the people that were in

<p>Q. Where does Mr. Young live?</p>
<p>Wood . In Chequer court, St. Martin's lane: When we returned to the watch-house Mr. Howard was dead. The constable of the night brought into the watch-house Mr. Morgan, Mr. Clark, Mrs. Carr, and Mrs. Hall; it was said by the people of the house, Blare and Campbel were gone off.</p>
<p>Q. Where did these people come out that struck you?</p>
<p>Wood. They all came down stairs where Blare rapped, &c.</p>
<p>Q. Was it before Campbel collared the deceased, or when those people came down stairs?</p>
<p>Wood . Instantly upon his striking the deceased they came down stairs.</p>
<p>Q. You say, when you got up you saw a sword or swords coming down stairs; can you tell, was Campbel then in the house or in the court?</p>
<p>Wood . I think the sword must be brought him, I did not see that he parted from the deceased at all.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure you saw two such weapons come down those stairs?</p>
<p>Wood. I am sure I did; they came into the passage, and I saw no other sword but what was brought down stairs; they came down naked; I was in the passage then.</p>
<p>Q. What business could you do at eleven o'clock at night?</p>
<p>Wood . We had been at several tradesmen's, and had been drinking two tankards of beer at one Mr. White's in Long Acre between five or six of us.</p>
<p>Q. Did you drink any thing at those other house?</p>
<p>Wood . We had a glass of rum at the currier's house .</p>
<p>Q. Did you drink nothing more?</p>
<p>Wood . After the two tankards of beer, we had three shillings in punch between five or six of us; this is all we drank from the time we left work till the time the thing happened.</p>
<p>Q. Did you drink none at work?</p>

<p>Wood. No, I never heard he did; he was always a quiet, peacable man.</p>
<p>Q. Who began to use this language first?</p>
<p>Wood. I was before; but I suppose Mr. Blare spoke first, but I cannot be certain.</p>
<p>Q. Did Mr. Blare when you came back call out for assistance?</p>
<p>Wood. I don't remember he did, only knocked at the door.</p>
<p>Q. Did you hear the cry, Pickpocket?</p>
<p>Wood. No. I heard no such word.</p>

<p>Q. Have not you said at any time since that the deceased was in liquor?</p>

<p>Carr. No, my Lord, they both remained with me on the stairs , and the door was shut. Presently Campbel came back and made a terrible noise at the door, wanting to come in a second time: we let him in.</p>
<p>Q. Who let him in?</p>
<p>Carr. I don't know who let him in: Blare and Campbel came in together.</p>
<p>Q. In what condition was Campbel when he came in?</p>
<p>Carr . His hair was all torn, and his shoulder knot in his pocket; it was a silver shoulder knot I asked him to let me keep it for him? but he would not let me.</p>
<p>Q. In what condition was Blare?</p>
<p>Carr. Mr. Blare was limping with his thigh and his head was all bruised with sticks.</p>
<p>Q. Was he bloody?</p>
<p>Carr. I saw no blood on him; he said his head was broke. Campbel had his sword drawn in his hand, and he looked at it; (it was bloody, I saw blood on it) he said, I believe I have killed a man Captain Clark said to him, I hope you have not . Said Captain

<p>Q. Who did go with him?</p>
<p>Carr. Mr. Blare and Campbel went away together.</p>
<p>Q. Who was in your house at this time?</p>
<p>Carr. There were none in the house but the mistress of the house, myself, and my servant, and these three gentlemen .</p>
<p>Q. In this conversation betwixt Clark and Campbel was the sword then bloody?</p>
<p>Carr. Yes, my Lord.</p>
<p>Q. What happened after that?</p>
<p>Carr. After that he and Blare went out together .</p>
<p>Q. Which way did he go out?</p>
<p>Carr. He went out at a back door into the same passage.</p>
<p>Q. Then he did not go out at the common door?</p>
<p>Carr. No, he did not; it is a door that leads to the necessary house. The constable and others came in about half an hour, and we all went to the watch-house, and before the Justice the next morning.</p>
<p>Q. When Campbel came in again, you say he had a sword drawn in his hand; had Mr. Blare a sword in his hand at that time?</p>
<p>Carr. He never wears a sword .</
