<p>- Smith. I am the man that sold the soot to the person, of whom the prosecutor bought it; these two witnesses came to me; I went and look'd at the soot as it lay, and found it to be the same.</p>
<p>Q. What did you know it by?</p>
<p>Smith. I had swept a smith's chimney, and that is quite different soot from others; and also there was some dust of a corkcutter. By what I saw of these, I can swear it is the same soot. I went to the prisoners in the Roundhouse, and Blake there said, after I gave-them some gin, that he was as deep in it as Williams, for he rolled the sacks out of the waggon upon Williams's back. The prisoners denied knowing any thing of the affair.</p>

The prisoner was then at the gate, he said he wanted to speak with one of the footmen; I said, here are no footmen here; I went into the house and delivered my message; they wanted me to do a little jobb in the house; I said I'd go and take care of my horse; I was not a minute in the house; when I returned the horse was gone; I went on to Kensington, a sentinel told me there was a man rode through the town as hard as his horse could go, but it being dark he could not tell the colour of the horse; the horse was left at Hammersmith ; I had him the Tuesday following.</p>

<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>I was coming from Bath, where I was discharged from my master's service (Esq; Carter) he there hired a servant who could talk French, and is gone to Paris; I served him a year and eight months, part in Ireland and part here. This pistol was one of his, the other was broke, and it was my perquisite. Coming along the road I met this horse on the other side Kensington, and no soul with him, about seven o'clock at night; I stopped him and waited to see if any body came up; nobody did, so I brought him to this Inn at Hammersmith and called for the hostler, and delivered the horse to him; there were some post chaises at the door; after I had been in the house, drank half a pint of wine, and paid for it, I went away in haste to get a ride behind one of them chaises. I did design to advertise the horse ; I went to enquire for lodging as I could not get a ride, and met with that soldier, who went with me from one house to another; and when they stopped me, he would have let me go, if I would have given him a piece of money.</p>

<p>M. Chalkley. Yes, sir, if I forswear myself I shall go to hell. She is sworn.</p>
<p>Q. Tell us the truth, and nothing but the truth.</p>
<p>M. Chalkley. The prisoner was my master, he lived at Blackwall; I was put apprentice to him; I cannot justly tell the month.</p>
<p>Q. What did he do to you?</p>
<p>M. Chalkley. My mistress went to bed, and my master was making candles ; my master bid me go down into the cellar to stay till the officer came; I went and sat upon the cellar stairs; he did not say any thing to me, but came and wanted to feel up my petticoats; I prayed him to get away; the officer coming he did not then (this was last haymaking time) the next time my mistress went to bed (this was about a fortnight after that time ) my bed was in the kitchin, and my mistress was in the one pair of stairs room; I had been asleep, and my master came and pulled the bed cloaths off me, and got upon me ; he put something into my body.</p>
<p>Q. What did he put into your body?</p>
<p>M. Chalkley. It was his nastiness.</p>
<p>Q. What do you mean by that word?</p>
<p>M. Chalkley. I mean his y - d.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure he put it into you?</p>
<p>M. Chalkley. I am sure he did.</p>
<p>Q. What did you say to him?</p>
<p>M. Chalkley. I prayed him to get away, and cried out.</p>
<p>Q. What did he do then?</p>
<p>M. Chalkley. There was something wet came into my body.</p>
<p>Q. Was you willing he should do so?</p>
<p>M. Chalkley. No, I was not.</p>
<p>Q. Did he use any force with you?</p>
<p>M. Chalkley. He held me down with his hands, by my shoulders.</p>
<p>Q. How long did he continue in that posture.</p>
<p>M. Chalkley. About five or six minutes; then he went up to bed. I liv'd with him about a month after.</p>
<p>Q. Did you say any thing of this to any person?</p>
<p>M. Chalkley. I did not till after I came home to my mother.</p>
<p>Q. Why did you not?</p>
<p>M. Chalkley. Because I was asham'd to speak of it; I told her the same day I went there, I had a great running upon me, I could not walk as I us'd to do.</p>
<p>Q. What was the first thing you observ'd, after you awoke?</p>
<p>M. Chalkley. My master was then upon me; and the bed-clothes were off.</p>
<p>Q. How long had you been awake, before he did any thing to you?</p>
<p>M. Chalkley. He wak'd me directly; he put his y - d into my body, as I awak'd.</p>
<p>Q. What did he say to you?</p>
<p>M. Chalkley. He said nothing at all, but bid me hold my tongue.</p>
<p>Q. Did your mistress hear you, when you cried out?</p>
<p>M. Chalkley. No, not as I know of.</p>
<p>Q. Was your master undrest?</p>
<p>M. Chalkley. No, he was not, his cloaths were unbutton'd before.</p>
<p>Q. Had you any talk with him after this?</p>
<p>M. Chalkley. No, none at all.</p>
<p>Q. Did he ever ask you to let him do so again?</p>

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175012050016"/> liked it; he had this kettle; (the prosecutor deposed to it) we agreed for it, and as soon as I bought it, he gave me this velvet cap (deposed to by the prosecutor) into my hand, and said, I had this of the same person; I bought the other things of him; it is of no use to me, you may take it; the very next morning I saw this advertisement, upon which I went directly to the prosecutor's house with the tea kettle and cap; just as I came to the corner of the shop I saw the prisoner at work in it, so I did not go in, but went to a publick house and sent for the prosecutor: he was not at home, but an acquaintance of mine living near I sent for him, and told him the whole, and he acquainted Mr. Woodward of the affair, so he came to me on the 29th of October, about five o'clock in the evening.</p>

When the men had put up the shop windows, I heard them say, tell Jenny to key the window; I went down stairs and put the key in the pin, it was the very first time I ever did it, and don't know whether I pushed the key quite far enough for the spring to catch: there were a gentleman and gentlewoman drank tea in the parlour, who staid at my master's till almost eleven o'clock at night: I fastened the parlour window before I went to bed, but in the morning the window was a little open, and the blind and sash put up a small matter: the pictures were all in the room when I went to bed: as soon as I opened the window I saw a daub as though a man had been there: I missed the kettle at first, but did not look round to see whether any of the pictures were gone.</p>

On the second of November he told me he had got intelligence of the man that robbed him, so I went with him before my lord mayor: I heard him confess he opened the shop window: the same as the prosecutor depos'd before, with this addition, he was very sober when he made this voluntary confession.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>On the 29th of October I was at this shop in the morning, and went to breakfast at the Peacock in Bread street with the other men; then I parted with them, and in the evening I happened to go there again; I staid there till about eleven o'clock, then I went home to bed, and getting too much in liquor, I lay almost till nine next morning; when I went to the Roebuck to get some purl, in order to go to work; going along Turnmill street (properly called Cow Cross) I met a man with these things under his arm, he was a carpenter by trade; he said to me, my wife is dead, and I am afraid of having my goods seized, so I want to get somebody to dispose of them; I told him I never dealt in any thing that way; he told me he could get 12 or 14 shillings for them, so I agreed to give him eight shillings and sixpence; I had a shilling left; then I parted from him, and carried them home to my lodging ; I intended to have gone to work at noon, but stopping in Field lane at the Elephant and Castle, and failing into company, I spent great part of the day there ; then I went and found my master I work'd for, afterwards I went into a publick house; then I went home, and the next morning I went again to the Peacock in Trinity lane; there was my master; he said, John, I am glad you are come; I said it has been a drunken sort of a week; I designed to go to work, but met a man that sawed stone; he said, we have had a sad misfortune here, your master Woodward has been robbed; said I, in what manner? said he, on Tuesday about noon; so I went to work, and there was no more of it; then we went to breakfast, and dinner as usual; when I was apprehended I had time enough to have got away had I been guilty; when they mentioned it to me I put my coat on and went with them to Mr. Groves's, and there I told them I sold the kettle to him; said they to me, you might as well own it as not, you shall not be hurt ; then they called for a quartern of brandy, and gave me a glass full; then they gave me some purl, and I was so drunk that I could scarcely stand; I told them what money the things cost, and that they were not demolished; I gave them a note, directed them to my wife, and desired her to send the prints; as for the man I bought them of, I never saw him since.</p>
<p>Q. to Groves. Did you hear him make this confession? and was he sober?</p>
<p>Groves. I was not there when he confessed; I heard him say in the street he would confess, but I went home; I am sure he was not drunk when I left him.</p>
<p>Prosecutor. I did not apprehend any thing of his being drunk, I thought he was as sober then as he is now; he said, if I would give him a full pot of twopenny, he would tell.</p>
