<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175101160003"/> put this sack of wheat into my boat, and desired me to give him a cast to Mill-stairs, and said he would give me three pence. He went on shore and staid some time, and came again with a pot of beer in his hand and made me drink, and said, he would meet me at Battle-bridge; and as I was coming up I called at another ship that lay at St. George's stairs, where some persons took me, and asked me what I had got; I told them I did not know, I had not touched it, but I thought it was sand; they let me go. Then two more came and stopped me and they let me go. Then these two men stopped me and sent for Mr. Scrivener, and he bid them let me go. But they said they should have 5 l. each for stopping me.</p>

<p>William Jackson. On the 24th of Dec. the prisoner brought a hat to me to pawn for six shillings. He came about an hour and half after that to my man to fetch it out, when my man put it on the counter. The prisoner had somebody without the shop door who push'd it open, and the prisoner took the hat up and run away with it, without paying for it. My man run after him, and took him with the hat upon him, and brought him back, and he confessed several such like things he had done that very night.</p>

<p>I pawned this hat for 6 s. and went back again in about an hour for it. I thought I had money enough about me. I was looking over it, and found I had not enough. I desired he'd take what I had and I would go and fetch the rest. I went out and he followed me and took the hat from me. I was a little in liquor.</p>
<p>Prosecutor. He offered me no money while he was in the shop. When he was taken then he did, 3 shillings and some halfpence, and the hat too, if I would let him go.</p>

She made as much resistance as could be expected by a woman. I got one of her pockets off, and prevented her crying out, when she began so to do, and she stood very quiet afterwards. I delivered one pocket to the prisoner at the bar, or else Charles Campbel, I cannot swear which. I had no hand in robbing the gentleman; the persons that robbed him were

<p>Q. Did the prisoner take hold of the prosecutor?</p>
<p>Ecklin. I cannot say he did, because it was a very dark night. When we do such things we are in a great flutter, thinking how to make our escape, when we have got the goods. We left them and went to the Seven Dials and stop'd a chair, but the watchmen surrounded us, and we escaped as well as we could. The next day we met again at the India Arms about twelve o'clock, and divided the money, which was about 3 s. 6 d. a piece. I saw the prisoner have 2 s. of it. We had some silver lace, which was wrapped up in a piece of blue paper, which they said was taken out of one of the pockets.</p>
<p>On his Cross Examination he said, He was taken up about 12 o'clock, and the next day he made this discovery amongst other robberies. That he had had no conversation with the prosecutor, concerning this robbery since; only being before the justice, when he and the prisoner were there. That he gave the same testimony on the other trial. [See No. 508. in John Blachford's, Esq; mayoralty.] That he did not see it, but was told afterwards, the prosecutor was struck with a pistol. That the prosecutor and his wife were arm in arm, when first they attacked them; and then the woman went to run, and he overtook her. That there were five of them in company.</p>

<p>George Nelson. Here is a Bill of Exchange that was brought inclosed, in a letter by one Wallice a porter, it came on the 1st of November in the evening, about 6 or 7 o'clock. I opened the letter, it was signed Sydne Stafford Smythe; the porter said, it came from one of the barons of the Exchequer, who lives in Cary-street. The contents to this purport.</p>
<p>Please to pay the bearer the contents within, &c. Cary-street, Sydnea Stafford Smythe. On the back of it was a Receipt wrote ready to sign.</p>
<p>Received the contents, for the use of Sydnea Stafford Smythe, Esq; by me a blank left for the porter to write his name.</p>
<p>I told the porter I had no advice of this Bill, and that it was a larger bill than what Mr. Legrass used to draw without advice.</p>
<p>Q. Did it appear to you to be like Mr. Legrass's writing, or had you any doubt about it?</p>
<p>Nelson. I then thought it was, but he happened to have a clerk in town, and I told the porter I chose to shew it to him before I paid it; so I told him to come the next day, being Friday, about 2 o'clock, and I'd endeavour to see the Clerk before that time; he came accordingly, but I had not seen the clerk, so I told him he must come
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175101160007"/> again, which I ordered on Saturday any time between two and four; he came about six or seven; I staid at home till five, then went out of town, and had left word, if the porter came to appoint him to come again at 3 o'clock on the Tuesday following. He came at that time, and when he came I laid hold on him, and told him the bill he had in his hand was forged; he said he could not tell any thing about that, he was only sent with it. I told him he must produce the man he had it of, he said he could easily do that, saying, the man was at my gate at the same time. I said that did not appear well to me; nor to me neither said the porter, but he said to me he ow'd some of your men money, which was the reason he did not care to come himself; but said the porter, if you desire me, I'll fetch him in directly. I did not think that proper, because the porter was a stranger to me. So he described him to a servant of mine,

The porter replied, yes, he sent me 4 times with it; then I asked the prisoner, if that was true? He said yes, and what then? I told him the bill was forged, and I believed he was concerned in it: and I sent for a constable; then he fell down on his knees, and begged very hard I would let him go. I told him for my own part I freely forgave the offence against me, but it was what I could not answer to the community.</p>
<p>This is the identical bill, and had never been out of his custody.</p>
<p>It was read in court to this purport.</p>

I told him it was no matter where, he must go, and if I had wronged him I'd ask his pardon. I took him to my master's house; as soon as the porter saw him, said he to me, you are right, that is the man; then my master sent me for a constable ; I know no more.</p>

<p>I had the misfortune to become acquainted with one Mr. Oroath, I was clerk to my uncle Mr. Kelley. I being an intire stranger to him, he appeared very genteel, with lac'd cloaths, &c. I did not suspect any ill from him. He came into my office on the 1st of November, where I was writing, the servant of the house was then with me; he turned the servant out, fearing he should know the business; then he produced me this letter, and directed me to go and send a porter with it to Mr. Nelson, and told me the contents of the bill, and at the same time produced a note of 200 l, payable to himself, from one

<p>Counsel for the Crown.</p>
<p>The prisoner has said in his defence, that he received this bill of exchange from Mr. Oroath, and the man was turn'd out of the office before he received any thing; and this man, who says he is a servant to Mr. Kelley, says he saw the gentleman give him a slip of paper; that is directly contrary to the prisoner's defence; and as to this Mr. Oroath, if it would have been of Service to them, they would have called him, he is now in Court.</p>
<p>[The paper is put into Mr. Oroath's hand.]</p>
<p>Mr. Oroath. I saw this at my Lord Mayor's, but never before, till I saw Mr. Nelson take it out of his pocket there; the prisoner at the bar had accused me, by sending a letter to his uncle, telling him, I was the person that gave him this draught. I came to my Lord Mayor, and brought a Gentleman who had seen me write, to prove it was none of mine. I had proof enough, and I believe was I to be at school 99 years, I could not write such a hand as that, neither did I ever hear talk of Yarmouth, till after this.</p>
<p>Q. Did you deliver that paper to the prisoner?</p>
<p>Oroath. No, I did not, the prisoner's uncle was my attorney. I had no intimacy with him, in my life time.</p>
<p>Cross examined.</p>
<p>Q. Was you in his office on the 1st of Nov.?</p>
<p>Oroath. I cannot be positive. I lodge just by Chancery-Lane, and as his uncle was my attorney, I used to be there sometimes.</p>
<p>Q. Did you ever desire the footman to go out of the room, when you was with the prisoner?</p>
<p>Oroath. No, I never did at any time.</p>

<p>On Saturday night, when I was at my master's chamber, there was toast and bear in the tankard; I took it home, as I had done often, for my supper; then I had occasion to go by the pawnbroker's shop; being very well known, out of a joking way I said, will you take this tankard in pawn? he said no, I'd have you carry it home again; so I will, said I; I went there again, and met Mr. Cole and Mr. Scott's servant in Mitre Court; they ask'd me if I knew any thing of the tankard, I did not say any thing, but delivered it them.</p>
<p>Mr. Cole. On Saturday night, she said she would swear it to one of my boys, and on Monday, she denied knowing of it, till she saw the pawnbroker.</p>
<p>Gibson. She did not do it in a joak, but said she wanted to take some other things out, she had before in pawn. She brought it wrap'd up in a piece of a petticoat.</p>

The windows next the road have shutters to them, the other in the yard have not. On monday morning, as I was going out about 7 o'clock, I missed my hat, going into the hall, there I found the shoes, which the overseers and churchwardens had sent in, and the child's clothes were gone. We had five dozen of shoes, but I had disposed of some of them, so I can't be exact as to the number, but I believe there were forty pair left, which were taken away; I let the overseers know of it, and we did what we could to find them. One Ross, who was cast last sessions, gave us a slender account of them, but would not tell the person's names, &c. The next was Clements the prisoner, I went to him in Clerkenwell Bridewell, with the two overseers; there he confessed every thing voluntarily, and his confession agreed with this account by the evidence. Westley own'd to the fact, that he was on the outside, and took the things, &c. And before the Justice, they were all for being admitted evidences. There was neither threats or promises made them, to induce them to confess.</p>

They fetch'd a man who look'd like a gentleman, he took them away in a bag; I was with them at the Adam and Eve, in Jewin-street, he paid them some money; they treated me all the next day, and would have had me went to the play with them.</p>

<p>Edward Carter. On Sunday morning the 6th of this instant, I was informed my house had been broke open; I missed the things mentioned. On, Tuesday morning I went amongst the brokers. I saw my stove standing at a door in Peter-street. I enquir'd how they came by it, I was told they bought it. I told them it was mine, and desired if the persons that brought it should come again, to stop them. I went to another place, and was sent for back; they had stop'd the two persons who came again, they were two women; we have them here to give evidence. I examined them how they came by them; they said their husbands gave them to them to sell, I had found a watering pot of mine at the other place, and ordered the people there to stop the person that brought it, if they came again; than I had word brought me, the person was stopt who brought that. I found all the goods, at different places.</p>

On the 9th of January I had a little business out in the evening, I went out between six and seven o'clock: when I returned I found the prisoner at the bar sitting in a box with another man, drinking a pot ; they continued so for about three quarters of an hour; they went out; as soon as he parted with the other he returned again and joined company with some other gentlemen; he stayed in the house an hour longer ; and I heard him say, all his money was gone but four pence, and said he would not carry that out of the house; so he had two glasses of usquebaugh for it; then he went out of the house, and betwixt nine and one he returned again, and asked my wife if she would trust him a pint of beer; she told him she did not chuse it; then he put his hand in his pocket and pulled out something, I did not see it, but he said here is money enough; then he went out of the house again, and in about half an hour returned again, and called for a pint of wine. I told him we did not sell wine ; then he said he would spend a shilling, and threw it at my wife: I then said if you will have it, have it in punch. There was no sugar below stairs; I went up stairs for some and found the door open. I came down to my wife, and asked her what time she was in the room, she said not since four o'clock; then she run up and came down again, and said, I am robbed, but spoke softly to me. I went up with her to see; then she said, I'll lay my life that fellow has robb'd me, for I saw some pieces of money in his hand; we came down immediately, and he was gone away and left his punch behind him: I saw no more of him that night. I went into a house in Piccadilly that very night, and the gentlewoman that keeps the alehouse, told me he had been there changing two pieces of gold.</p>
<p>Mrs. Collingwood. The prisoner was in my house all that evening; he and another person came in and called for a pot of beer, then they went out again; the prisoner said he would not bid me a good night, he would come back again.</p>
<p>She went on and confirmed the testimony of her husband with this addition: That when he came again the last time but one, he pulled out of his pocket and shewed to her a 36 shilling piece and a 27 s. piece; then he went out again and soon came in, and she saw in his hand much silver and half a guinea amongst it.</p>

I then took up Bennet, and had him before justice Hammond; there he acknowledged, that he and Cox stole the corn, and that Cox told him he could sell it to Pursley, for he used to deal with him. I had a warrant to take up Pursley; I went to the house, and told him I had a great suspicion he had received four sacks of wheat which were stole, and that he must go before a magistrate. He said I was welcome to look all over his house; for as to Mr. Cox, he knew nothing of him: after that he said, he knew Cox as a neighbour; at first he denied he had any dealings with him, then he was ask'd, whether he thought Cox could come honestly by four sacks of wheat. He said no, he did not believe he could; then we carried him in order to go before Esq; Hammond; he was not at home; so justice Browning committed him for farther examination, and in the evening we carried him to justice Hammond, where at first he stead-fastly denied it; said Esq; Hammond, what will you say if I bring the man to your face, and he says you bought it? [ Cox was brought out of a room to him. ] Said the justice to Cox, do you know any thing of four sacks of wheat that you stole out of Mr. Rouse's lighter? yes, said he, I stole them, and sold them to Mr. Pursley. Mr. Pursley was in a rage, and said, I wonder you should serve me so: said Cox, you need not deny it; Cox said, he had received 35 s. and 5 s. in bread of Pursley; at last Pursley was very sorry, he said, for what he had done, and made a few excuses; Pursley then said, he paid him 40 s. for them, but he never saw the wheat.

<p>Q. What do you think them 16 bushels of wheat were worth at that time?</p>
<p>Rouse. These four sacks of wheat cost my masters 50 s. and they bought a great quantity together at Bear-key, it cost 24 s. and 6 d. per quarter, and lighteridge and other charges, makes it amount to that money. I heard Pursley say, he paid Cox for them four sacks of wheat.</p>

The price at Bear-key, at this time the wheat was stole, was 24 s. and 6 d. per quarter, and according to my own opinion, I think Mr. Pursley must know the wheat was then worth more money than he gave for it.

He hovered round the chaise, sometimes before and sometimes behind it in a very extraordinary manner; he attended the chaise to Hounslow, and about the middle of the town we got out of the chaise, and demanded the prisoner to surrender himself, which he did with out making any resistance at all, and declared he had no intention at that time to do any person an injury: he was taken before a justice of the peace and committed to the county goal, for returning from transportation.</p>
