<p>Q. Were is this letter?</p>
<p>Pearce. I lost it, but the purport of it was, that there was a certain lady of quality that had some business to do to some houses in Wild-street, and a friend of mine had recommended me to the prisoner, and he would recommend me to the lady to do this business. I went to the prisoner's house in Queen's-square Bloomsbury, I was ordered up stairs, there was the Prisoner sitting with a book in his hand, he desir'd me to walk in and sit down, and brought a chair to me himself, he desir'd me to drink a dram; I never saw or heard of him before in my life; he told me the lady would not be there 'till three o'clock, and ask'd me to dine with him; I said, I expected some company to dine with me at home, so I would go home and return again by four o'clock, I did not stay with him above half an hour the first time. When I went again at the time appointed, I saw a person whom he called my Lady Gunston, he recommended me to do the plumber's work to some houses of hers in Wild-street; she immediately reply'd, she had some work to do but did not think to do it then, but as soon as it was to do I should do it. As I was going away he desired I would come again the next day and dine with him, which accordingly I did; after dinner he began to complain of the hardship he had received from the present government, and especially of one Mr. Carrington, a messenger, he gave him as many ill names as possible; then he ask'd me if I should like to go to France, saying, he was going, having an order from the King of France to come over, and that he had been with the French ambassador, who told him he would not give him above 150 l. for his passage to France, adding, he would not go without money enough to pay his debts; I told him, I believed I should go to France or Ireland this summer; he told me if I would go with him to France, he would get me a captain's commission in a regiment in France, and at the least it should not cost me above 100 l. which I could very well afford; then we began to drink healths, he drank Prince Charles, the French King his master, all which healths I drank. Late at night he drank damnation to the Protestant succession, which I refus'd to drink, and wanted to leave him; he told me he had 900 l. lay in Sir

We went towards dusk, when there I waited in the coach some considerable time, the prisoner came out, having had some discourse with Sir Daniel, and desired me to walk in, I did, Sir Daniel was sitting at the corner of the compting-house, the prisoner said he wanted to talk with Sir Daniel, and beg'd I would go out, accordingly I did, and walk'd about on the pavement; then he came out and said Sir Daniel expected the money very soon for him, then we drove away. Coming to the black horse in the Strand, he said he was very dry, we stop'd there, the servants had a pot of porter, and we another in the coach: then we drove to the corner of the lane, put his servants in a house there and went to my house, my wife had never seen his lordship before; we went down to Mr. Drummonds, were he said he believed he had some money; he ran up stairs, I waited in the hall; then we went from thence to his own house that night, there I parted with him, but I was a little in liquor, I think he sent a servant home with me but I am not certain; the next day my wife and I went to his house and din'd with him, in the afternoon he took me into the closet, and the same discourse went on between us, that is, insisting on my going to France, and to be a captain in a regiment, telling me my cloaths should not cost me anything, he should have money enough to pay for them himself. We staid there pretty late, he and one Mrs. Pearce, whom he kept company with, came to our house, he lay with me, and she with my wife; she went for his housekeeper, she is a bricklayer's wife; all the time during this we had continual discourse in the same way.

<p>Q. Did you give any directions concerning the fashion?</p>
<p>Pearce. No, none at all. I did not know what was the fashion.</p>
<p>Q. Are these cloaths paid for?</p>
<p>Pearce. No, they are not yet, one of the suits I wore for upwards of a month.</p>
<p>Q. How many suits were ordered?</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175005300004"/>Pearce. There were three suits order'd and made, and I had them all in my custody. After that we were continually together every day, still holding on the same discourse.</p>
<p>Q. Where are the cloaths?</p>
<p>Pearce. They are now in Court.</p>
<p>Q. Did you lay down the business of a plumber?</p>
<p>Pearce. No, I did not; I had a fore-man who did that for me. I was at the Prisoner's house three or four nights without the knowledge of my wife, and design'd she should not know any thing of my agreeing to go abroad, thinking at the same time there was enough at home to supply her with what she might want. 'Twas on the day the last earthquake happen'd, (at the time of the shock we were at breakfast at the Prisoner's house) that we agreed to go to Windsor together, in order to be conceal'd for his taking me abroad. On Sunday the 11th of February I went to Windsor; and the Wednesday following the Prisoner was sent for to London ; and I went to Reading, and from thence to Ockingham, returning the same evening, as did the Prisoner at the bar from London. Then we both went to Reading; and whilst we were there, a messenger was sent for him, so he was oblig'd to go to Windsor, upon what business I know not. On the Friday following I went to Henley fair, and the Prisoner came to London, and return'd on Sunday night to me at Reading; and Mr. Holmes, a plumber there, and an old acquaintance, came to us on Monday morning, and brought some money, of which I was a little short, to bring me away. The Prisoner too brought me some money, which, he said, was from Mr. Nevel, a silversmith. We had the same discourse before Mr. Holmes, and he told him that I had engag'd myself to go along with him, and that I was to be a captain in the French King's service.</p>
<p>Q. Did you design to go to France with him?</p>
<p>Pearce. Yes, I did. We fix'd upon several days to set out, but could not raise money.</p>
<p>Q. What became of the cloaths after you had wore them?</p>
<p>Pearce. I gave the Prisoner my key; and as we wanted a little money, the Prisoner, with my consent, sent them by his servant to pawn for ten guineas to one Singleton by Red-lion-square; of which sum I had three or four guineas, the rest the Prisoner kept. I was in Windfor at the same time, and, to tell the truth, did not design to carry on the business of a plumber any longer.</p>

I took measure of Mr. Pearce, by and for whom I had orders to make the cloaths, at the recommendation of the Prisoner, who, when I took measure, directed me in regard to their being made; and this I made, (holding the coat in his hand ) the other two are made in a richer manner than this.</p>
<p>Q. Who did you expect was to pay you?</p>
<p>Osbridge. I imagin'd Mr. Pearce was to pay me, but I am not paid yet, neither have I demanded the money, tho' he has ask'd me for my bill.</p>
<p>Q. Was you acquainted with Mr. Pearce before?</p>
<p>Osbridge. No; I was not: but with the Prisoner I have been acquainted these five or six months, to whom I one day went, who inform'd me of his having got me a very good customer, and a man of fortune too, in which quality I then look'd upon the Prisoner, and express'd my obligation to him for his kindness: He then wrote a letter to Mr. Pearce who happen'd not to be at home that day. I believe I call'd the next day, but did not see either of them till one day the Prisoner chanc'd to be at Mr. Pearce's house, when I was sent for.</p>
<p>Q. Did not you arrest the Prisoner at the bar for the money for those cloaths?</p>
<p>Osbridge. No; I never did.</p>
<p>Q. Are you used to make such cloaths as those for plumbers?</p>
<p>Osbridge. No, Sir.</p>
<p>Q. Did you know he was a plumber then?</p>
<p>Osbridge. Yes, I did; and I heard he was a man of fortune.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know they are regimentals of any country?</p>
<p>Osbridge. Really I do not know.</p>
<p>Q. Who ordered them to be made in that form?</p>
<p>Osbridge. The Prisoner at the bar. They were both together, and told me to make them as rich as I could.</p>
<p>Q. Is it the fashion of England to make them so?</p>
<p>Osbridge. It is, Sir.</p>
<p>Q. Was you directed to put the lace on in any particular form?</p>
<p>Osbridge. I had no particular order; my order was to make them as rich as I could, and to put the lace on according to my own mind.</p>
<p>Q. Who do you look upon to be debtor for them?</p>
<p>Osbridge. I enter'd in my book Mr. Pearce debtor.</p>
<p>Q. to Mr. Pearce. Who had the money the cloaths were pawned for?</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175005300005"/>Pearce. I had some ; the reason was, none of my friends would let me have any money down.</p>
<p>Q. Have not you a fortune lately left you?</p>
<p>Pearce. I do not know what is coming to me as yet, it is in the executor's hands.</p>
<p>Q. Did you receive any more money than what you speak of?</p>
<p>Pearce. I receiv'd about eight guineas at Windsor, which were given to the Prisoner by Mr. Nevil, a silver-smith, and which were to keep me there.</p>
<p>Q. to Osbridge. Where was Mr. Pearce determined to go when these cloaths were ordered to be made?</p>
<p>Osbridge. Upon my word, I judg'd it might be to the jubilee, but cannot be positive. I heard him say they were not fit for England, and that he should go abroad with them.</p>
<p>Q. How came you to name the jubilee?</p>
<p>Osbridge. I have heard it nam'd among the servants in the Prisoner's house, and heard the Prisoner say THEY were to go, but I did not hear it from Mr. Pearce; nor do I know whom the Prisoner meant by that expression.</p>
<p>Q. Did you never hear Pearce was to go to France?</p>
<p>Osbridge. No.</p>

I live at Windsor, and was in company with Mr. Pearce and the Prisoner at Mr. White's, at the Mermaid, about the latter end of February, where they had been drinking, and were fuddled. Mr. Pearce, who sent for me, and I were school-fellows, and our fathers were partners together. Their discourse was upon military affairs, of which I told them I knew something, and drew out on a bit of paper a machine, that I had invented some time ago, for putting the infantry and cavalry in disorder. The Prisoner d - d the D - and the Protestant Succession ; and upon my asking him the reason why he did so, he said, that he was one of those unhappy gentlemen taken in a ship coming over to assist P - C - in recovering his right; and that he was delivered over to Mr. Carrington, in whose hands he had been almost three years, and whom he would shoot through the head the first time he saw him: he further told me that he had inlisted Mr. Pearce in the foreign service as a captain, and wanted me to go in that station, telling as an encouragement for me his having enlisted Mr. Pearce. Mr. Pearce had one of those suits of cloaths on, and said he had some more, and that he was to be a captain in the Prisoner's company: he added, upon his honour, that I should be joint-engineer along with him (meaning the prisoner) under the King of France; that he would give forty thousand pounds for my machine; that they were going every minute, and that the cloaths he had on were to be his riding-suit.</p>
<p>Q. Did the Prisoner say he had enlisted Mr. Pearce ?</p>
<p>Holmes. He told me twenty times so, and that he had the cloaths made for him. He said likewise that he could make the Dauphin of France drunk, and carry him to a bawdy-house when he pleased; and that he had a house at Orleans in France.</p>
<p>Q. Did Mr. Pearce contradict his being inlisted ?</p>
<p>Holmes. No, he did not, but actually said he was a captain, and wanted me to go along with him. We had this discourse between us at Mr. White's, up one pair of stairs, I believe on the left hand side. I went about seven in the evening, stay'd till about eleven or twelve o'clock at night, and smoak'd a pipe with them. During this talk there were none but us three in the room.</p>
<p>Q. Was Mr. White there?</p>
<p>Holmes. He was there at the beginning of the night, and, for aught I know, he might be there when I was gone, but not when this talk was.</p>

The Prisoner and Mr. Pearce came to my house on Sunday night about the beginning of February, and two ladies with them. They staid there almost a week, then went away, and afterwards came again, and staid near ten days. I remember Mr. Holmes was several times with them in that time, and they were frequently in company together in the dining-room. The Prisoner had on, I believe, a scarlet coat, trimmed with gold. One evening we went a fishing; but I heard nothing of the discourse. Indeed, I heard Mr. Pearce and the Prisoner talk of going to France, and that they were to set out such and such a time, but that they were to go to Oxford first.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>When Mr. Pearce first came to my house, he came upon a letter I wrote him on the influence of Lady Gunston, wife to Sir John, who was chairman at Westminster for a considerable time. She told me she had a house to repair in Wild-street. When Mr. Pearce came, he asked me my business with him. I told him I expected the Lady in a few minutes; but he said he must go home to dine with company, and that he would be with me
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175005300006"/> again about three o'clock. He accordingly came, as did at the same time Lady Gunston, and they came to an agreement. I then ask'd him if he would drink a glass of punch. Some time after the Duke of Hamilton's health was toasted; upon which some of the company asked me where he was; to whom I made answer that he was in Rome, he having left London in order to go to the jubilee, and I added that I would go to him there. Pearce said he would be at an equal expence in order to go too : and, upon my telling him tradesmen could not dispense with so large a sum, he inform'd me that his father had left him 20,000 l. and that he could spare 500 l. as well as any tradesman in England. He then look'd upon a scarlet coat, which he said was well made, and ask'd me who work'd for me. I told him Mr. Osbridge, whom he desired me to send for, which I did, and Mr. Osbridge came, took his measure, made the cloaths according to his desire, and brought them home. Early on Sunday morning, he, and one miss Williams, whom he keeps company with, came to my house, and insisted on my going to Windsor, telling me he had a four-wheele chaise with two horses, and two saddle horses. I said I was very ill, and could not go; but he would take no denial, but oblig'd me to go with him. I ask'd him how much money he had about him, he said about a guinea. I told him I had not much, and therefore did not care to go without more. He then mentioned his being acquainted with one Mr. Holmes, who would supply him, as he should return in two or three days. We got there very late on Sunday night, and on Monday morning Mr. Holmes prepar'd a fishing-boat, in order to take the diversion of fishing. Afterwards I told Mr. Pearce it was inconsistent with our interest to stay here; but, said he, to tell you the naked truth, I am so much in debt that I am afraid of being arrested. An express was now sent for me; I was arrested, and the gentleman, who gave bail for me, is now in court. I was to have been in town in a limited time, to have satisfied him for it; however, I left Windsor. Pearce insisted on my returning again, to do which I was very unwilling; but he insisted upon it, and accordingly sent his chaise and two horses for me. Upon their arrival I was sitting at Mr. Johnson's door, and was told he wanted me upon earnest business. I went, and when I came there, he told me he had not money enough to defray the expences; he spoke to one of my servants, and desired him to pawn the cloaths. The man did, and brought him the money. Afterwards Mr. Pearce went to Reading, and said positively, he would not return home. He wrote to his wife, and call'd her a d - d bitch of a whore, and that he would never cohabit with her more, and that he loved this woman's little finger he had with him, better than he did her whole body, and that he would settle something agreeable upon her, as soon as his fortune came to his hands. By his intreaties he prevailed on me to go to Reading with him. After we had been there two days, some men came there, Mr. Holmes was one; he came just as we were going to dinner: I asked him if he would not dine with us; he told me he had just dined, but he would drink with us. While we were at dinner, he entertained us with a machine, saying, he could make it with iron graffles, so that a thousand men should beat twenty thousand, and cut them to pieces, sword in hand. I told him it was impracticable ; he told me he had shewed it to the D - of C - ; I asked him how he paid him? he d - d him, and said, his h - was too thick to conceive the meaning of it. I returned after dinner, and came to town, in order to settle my affairs, and can make it appear I never inlisted a man in my life; it is below me. Mr. Attorney-General mov'd against me last Sessions; and Mr. Carrington took the most disorderly steps that man could, in order to take away my life. Mr. Pearce was so punctual to the time of our return, that I said I should return in six months; and he agreed to my time, for in that time, said he, I shall inherit my father's fortune, and improve the liberal education he gave me, hoping I shall turn out an honour to my country.</p>

I get notes discounted; and he sent to me a note of Mr. Pearce's, of 54 l. 18 s. which I carried to a distiller in the Hay-market, and told him the Prisoner would take 10 or 20 gallons of rum, and allow the discount besides. I left the note, and the distiller went to Mr. Pearce's, and made some enquiry; but then he said he was told by some other person that it was a sham note. I went to Queen-square, where I found Mr. Pearce, and we went to the distiller, whom he said he would pay; but the distiller not thinking proper to discount it, I return'd it to the Prisoner at the bar.</p>
<p>Cross examined.</p>
<p>Q. Where do you live?</p>
<p>Cennet. In Round-court in the Strand.</p>
<p>Q. Who paid you for your trouble in going with this note?</p>
<p>Cennet. The Prisoner did.</p>
<p>Q. What do you deal in?</p>
<p>Cennet. I deal sometimes in liquor, sometimes in Irish linens, sometimes in Irish stuffs, and in getting notes discounted.</p>
<p>Q. Are you a house-keeper?</p>
<p>Cennet. No, I am not, Sir; I am a lodger, and have a second floor.</p>
<p>Q. Have not you and the Prisoner been very private together since this?</p>
<p>Cennet. I was never half an hour together with him in my life.</p>
<p>Q. Did you ever hear the Prisoner say he had inlisted Mr. Pearce to serve the French King?</p>
<p>Cennet. I believe he did own to me he had prevail'd with Mr. Pearce to go abroad to Rome, and that they were to go together.</p>
<p>Q. Did you hear Pearce say he was to go into any foreign service?</p>
<p>Cennet. I cannot recollect I ever did. If you please you may ask Mr. Pearce if I was not the first person that wrote to him to put him on his guard.</p>
<p>Q. Guard! for what?</p>
<p>Cennet. That the Prisoner should not take him in for a good deal of money.</p>
<p>Pearce to the question. I receiv'd a letter to take care of a sham Lord, or else I should suffer by him.</p>
<p>Q. to Cennet. Did you know who was to pay the taylor for those cloaths?</p>
<p>Cennet. I heard the taylor say he had got a draught on Mr. Pearce for 100 l.</p>
<p>Q. to Osbridge. Had you a note of Mr. Pearce for the payment of these cloaths ?</p>
<p>Osbridge. I never had a note for these cloaths.</p>

About the beginning of February there was wrote down in my book that I was to wait on the Earl of Desmond. Accordingly on the Monday following I went to his Lordship's house, who gave me an account of some plate, which I did not like, and therefore departed. He sent for me again, and said he would give me a draught upon as good a man as any in England, meaning Mr. Pearce. Upon enquiry I found the draught was good, and I have it here. I therefore went a second time to my Lord's house, and Mr. Pearce was there, whom I ask'd if he did accept the draught; and he said he did. I then deliver'd a hundred pound's worth of plate at his Lordship's house. This is all I know of between them. Mr. Pearce has been out of the way ever since.</p>
<p>Q. to Osbridge. Did Pearce ever employ you to make his servant a suit of livery ?</p>

<p>Q. Supposing Mr. Pearce should not be bound in point of law to pay you for these cloaths you have made, what will you do?</p>

My neighbour told me a child was stripp'd by an old woman: I ran and met the prisoner, with the child in her left hand and a bundle under her arm: I took hold of her, and ask'd her what she was going to do with the child; she said she was mother of it; I said, if she was, I would bring her to justice, for few mothers strip their own children in the fields. The child cried, I ask'd it what she cried for, she said, she wanted to go to her mother, and said the woman threaten'd to fling her into a pond if she cry'd. The child
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175005300011"/> was naked all to her gown, shift, and petticoat. In the bundle was a child's stay, a quilted petticoat, bib, and apron. I brought her to my dwelling-house. She confest she had taken the child from near Leicester-house. I asked her what she had done with the child's stockings. She deliver'd them to me, and a pair of buckles. By what the child said, I found out its parents, who liv'd in St. Martin's court; and there I took the prisoner and the child. When the prisoner was brought before the Justice, the prosecutor swore the things belong'd to the child. The Justice ask'd the prisoner what she had to say for herself. She said she had nothing at all to say, and that she was very sorry for what she had done.</p>

I was at work at my door, and saw the prisoner lead the child by a pond in Mary-le-bon-fields, something better than a mile from Leicester-fields. I saw her place herself in a particular place, to sit down in a corner betwixt two banks, which determin'd me to see what she did. Accordingly I watch'd, and saw her take the child's bib and apron off, then her stay, and so on to her smock. She put her under petticoat and the old gown on again, and was going to pull her shoes and stockings off. I then call'd to the other witness, a milk-woman, and said, for God's sake come here, for here is a woman stripping a child. In the mean time she shuffled on the shoes, and was leading it away. The child cried bitterly, and said, let me go to my mamma, adding, she liv'd in St. Martin's-Court at a china-shop. We took her and the child, with the assistance of two men; and I saw the bundle opened.</p>

<p>I had been at Mary le bon, coming back, I met a woman very well dress'd, she said, mistress, if you will let this child be with you, while I go into this house, I will give you two-pence when I come out. I saw her go in: when I went to ask the maid if there was such a woman came there, she said there was no such woman. I staid an hour, the child said, I am hungry, I had her by the hand. Walking along, I ask'd her where she liv'd, she said in St. Martin's-court ; these two women put upon me, they took the child out of my hands, sent for two men, who pull'd and haul'd me all to pieces.</p>

The deceased was brought by a watchman to the watch-house in Catherine-street, near the tower, about half an hour after twelve at night, between the 4th and 5th of May. I ask'd him who it was that did him this mischief. He answer'd, he did not know the names of the men, but there were two, the one a foreigner, the other a sailor; that the sailor
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175005300012"/> knock'd him down with a stick, and the other, the man of the house, cut him with a sword. He died last Friday. The people in the neighbourhood heard a noise in Knapp's house, which by their directions we went and surrounded, and took the two prisoners to the watch-house. Knapp was taken the next morning before the deceased, who look'd at him about half a minute, and then said he was the man that cut him with a swore, but that he had chang'd his cloaths, for before he had on regimentals. The deceased was really in his senses at this time, tho' at times he had a few ghts, as once he had about two o'clock; and he told me before he should know the man if he could see him. The prisoners were brought in separately ; but I did not hear him say any thing to Clancey, I being not there when he was brought in. They were also separately examin'd before Justice Goodman, where they confess'd the abuses they had done to the deceased. Clancey was first examined; he own'd he struck him a blow once with a stick; the Justice ask'd him who it was that cut the man in the manner he was; he reply'd it was Mr. Knapp; and when Knapp was examin'd, he own'd he cut the man, but 'twas in his own defence. - On his cross examination, he said Knapp's house was about 300 yards from the watch-house; and that it was impossible to hear the noise made there to the watch-house; that, when he went by Knapp's door about eleven o'clock, all was very still then; and that the deceased had slumbered a little between the time he was brought there, and Knapp's being brought in.</p>

I was coming down the Ditch side about four o'clock in the morning of the 5th of May, and going by Knapp's door, I saw the headborough sitting there, who said he wanted my assistance, for that there had been a man murder'd. When the house was surrounded, somebody burst the door open. I went in, and found Knapp just getting out of bed. We took him, and carry'd him to the deceased. I held the prisoner before him, and said, young man, is this the man that has cut you? He lifted up his eyes and look'd hard at him, and said he was the man, but that he had chang'd his cloaths, for before he had on soldier's cloaths. About a minute or two after, he was asked again, and he answered as before, and added, that there was another man concerned with him who had a white waistcoat on, and a pair of clean trowsers. Clancey was then very soon brought in, and the deceas'd said that was the other person, adding, that he knock'd him down with a stick, and, after he had got up, and was running down the hill, Knapp follow'd him about 100 yards with a cutlass, and after he gave him a cut or two, the deceased begg'd for mercy, saying, for the Lord's sake don't kill me, struggling from him at the same time about 10 yards farther; but Knapp follow'd him, and said d - n you, I'll sla you by G - d; but as for Clancey, he never follow'd him. The deceased made no declaration how the quarrel began, but said he never was within the door, but was knock'd down at the door. [He shew'd the cap the deceased had on at the time, a thick worsted cap with three cuts in it about two inches long each.] Knapp declared he cut him so long till the cutlass flew in two.</p>
<p>On his cross-examination he said he had this conversation with the deceased a little after seven in the morning; that he believed the constable was not there; and that the deceased was pretty saint, but very sensible.</p>

The man however was knock'd down, but he recovered and ran about 40 yards, follow'd by another man with a hanger or sword in his hand, who knock'd him down, and after that struck him four or five blows. I call'd out, and said I would fire on him, if he did not let the man alone, but could not get to them because the ditch was between us. He left the deceas'd there, who strove to get up, but could not. The man that did it had on a soldier's coat, but I cannot be positive as to the prisoners, it being too far off to see; but when a watchman came, I call'd to him to take the man up that was cut.</p>

<interp inst="t17500530-21-person161" type="gender" value="male"/> </persName> . I am a surgeon. On Saturday the 5th of May, the deceased was brought to the London hospital. We found a large wound on the right side of his head on the upper part; it reached almost down to his ear; he had another wound under the right ear, and one on the left side of his head, beginning at the upper part thereof, and reaching down about two inches and a half, but that on the right side was the most mortal. He died May the 26th, and, by the directions of the surgeons, was opened, and 'twas the judgment of them all that these wounds were the occasion of his death. On the 5th of May I enquir'd of him how this accident happen'd. He said, as he was along with a ship-mate of his, going a-cross Tower-hill, they saw a crowd of people at a door, and upon enquiry what the matter was, a soldier and sailor came out; that the soldier, whom he took for a foreigner, drew his hanger, and swore he would kill him, and accordingly gave him two or three cuts on the head; that he was knock'd down several times by them, and that he made the best of his way from them, but was so closely follow'd by them that he could not escape, for at Tower-ditch the soldier overtook him, and cut him again two or three times. The soldier, who was century in the Tower heard the disturbance, and call'd out, saying he would fire upon them, which made them desist. The deceased lay in his blood upon the ground, whence he was taken and carried to the watch-house. When he gave me this account, he was quite in his senses; and there were some bruises in his arms, and the wounds were made by some cutting instrument.</p>
<p>Q. Did he give you any account how the quarrel arose?</p>
<p>Dobson. He never told me what first occasioned the mob.</p>

<p>I am a High German, and live upon Tower-hill. I heard a great noise that night in the street, but never went out of my house till the constable came next morning and took me out.</p>
<p>Q. Have you forgot what you said before the Justice?</p>
<p>Prisoner. I don't know what I said there. Some people gave me brandy before I went there, and I was very much in liquor.</p>
<p>Clancey's Defence.</p>
<p>I'll tell the truth. There were three men came and knock'd at Knapp's door between twelve and one o'clock, when Knapp, who was much in liquor, went and ask'd what they wanted, adding, that it was an unseasonable time of the night to let any body in; but they insisted upon coming in, or they would break the door open. I then went out at the back door, and saw they were no watchmen. I ask'd them if they were going to rob the house, when one of them knock'd me down twice; and I, in my own defence, gave him one blow with my fist, but no more. The other prisoner said, gentlemen, go away from my house, and don't make any more noise about my door ; upon which two of them run, but the deceas'd stay'd behind, crying shame on the others for running, and throwing stones at Knapp and me; which made Knapp say, must my house be broke open by those three villains ? However, this man went away at last, and stood at the end of the lane. Knapp follow'd him, but what was done afterwards I can't tell. I was the first that went in, and Knapp came in afterwards.</p>

He did not get down, so the beadle took hold of the horse's head (there was out one horse) and turned him back again towards Holbourn, about twenty yards.

When the deceased was on his back he lay about a yard from the dray, had it gone streight on, the wheel would not have touched him.

I did not see the prisoner upon the dray, the beadle let his staff fall in the struggle, the dray was as it were rather standing, the drayman disengaged himself from the deceased, and gave him a push, he lay about a yard or two from the dray on his back.

<interp inst="t17500530-32-person230" type="gender" value="male"/> </persName> . I was standing at the end of Bowl-yard, Broad St. Giles's; there I saw the prisoner at the bar and the beadle of St. George's parish a tusling together, they both had hold of each other, the prisoner pushed the other on the left side, then he drove on, and the near wheel went over the deceased's leg. He drove the horse streight on, he did not pull him, the horse's head was towards St. Giles's church when I first saw them. I was within twenty five yards of them, when the wheel run over him, I was within five or six yards of the deceased, I stopped the horse.</p>
<p>Q. Was you examined before the coroner?</p>
<p>Watkins. Yes, I was, my lord.</p>
<p>Q. Did you sa y the same there you do now?</p>
<p>Watkins. I said if he had let the horse go on according to his own way, doubtless the wheel might have escaped the old gentleman's leg, had
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175005300016"/> he flung the halter over the horse's head when he hit him, it might have escaped him.</p>
<p>Darby Morris. I was within fifteen or sixteen yards, I did not see the beginning of it, I saw the prisoner shove the beadle down, and went on with the dray, there were a great many people about, the horse stood still when the deceased was pushed down, and to the best of my knowledge the prisoner might have avoided running over the deceased.</p>
<p>Jos. Windsor. I am an Apothecary, the deceased leg was broke in two, close by the ancle, both the bones, he was an elderly man; I attended him to the Saturday night when he died. The wound began to mortify on the Tuesday morning before I went to the prisoner in Bridewel. On the Sunday morning after I went and told him Mr. Burgess was dead, he said he was very sorry for it, and wished he had taken his advice and got off the dray.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>I had no design at that time to hurt the deceased no more than the child unborn. Please to examine witnesses on my side.</p>

On the fifteenth of May I was in the shop at the sign of the parrot, I saw the beadle strike the prisoner once with his staff as they were scufling, the drayman's back was towards the horse, I saw the beadle lift up his hand to strike the drayman again; then the drayman pushed him down, and instantly the dray went on. The drayman perceiving the danger, he clap'd his right hand to the dray, to push it back if he could, I did not see he had hold of the halter, I was above twenty yards off.</p>
<p>Eliz. Dixon. I was in the shop with the last witness, I saw a mob, and they said the beadle was beating the drayman. I don't know when the dray went on, or whether the drayman had a halter in his hand or not. I saw him striving to push the dray off.</p>
<p>Fra. Winter. On the fifteenth of May I was looking out of my own window about twelve yards from the dray. I heard a noise, I saw the deceased having the prisoner by the collar, insisting he should go along with him, the prisoner would not go, the deceased up with his stick and hit him two or three times.</p>
<p>Q. Was it a stick or his staff?</p>
<p>Winter. It was a stick or a cane, he had a staff in his hand besides, the prisoner strove to twist the stick out of his hand; he gave him a shove and he fell down in the kennel, then the dray turned round short and went over one of his legs.</p>
<p>To his character.</p>
<p>Mr. Jackson. The prisoner worked with me a year and a half, I always looked upon him to be a quiet inoffensive man as ever I had in my house.</p>
<p>The Rev. Mr. Allen. The time the prisoner was servant with Mr. Jackson, I lodg'd there about fifteen months, he had a general good character, I imploy'd him to do little matters for me, I always found him faithful and of a quiet disposition, and I was very much surprized when I heard he was under such circumstances.</p>

I then ask'd him what he had there; he said they were rabbits. I ask'd him where he had them, and he told me from home. I desired to see them, and, upon looking, found them to be a buck, a doe, and six young ones.

So I deliver'd it up last Thursday was a week.</p>

<p>The prisoner's defence.</p>
<p>I deal in old cloaths. Last May day in the morning, I went into Sugar-house yard to make water. I sat down, and I saw a watch lying by me, I took it up, there was another woman along with me, she and I went both to Mr. Bignal's in the morning. I said, glory be to God, I had got something that would get me bread for my poor children. I sold it to her for a guinea and a half. When I was before the Justice, the man would not swear me.</p>

Downs desired the prisoner would lend him two guineas, and he'd come and pay it again. The next day he left the ticket, and took the two guineas, but came no more. The prisoner carry'd it to the ticket-office some time after this, to know if it was a good ticket, but it prov'd to be a counterfeit one.
