When I was got within about forty or fifty yards of Mr. Masterman's house, I heard something behind me; I looked back and saw, I think, the same man, with a mask on his face, and a pistol in his hand, about four or five yards behind me. I mistrusting his errand, put my hand under my coat to push in my watch chain, which, with two large seals, hung visibly to be seen. He said, Give me your watch, or I will shoot you; I said I had none, or would not, or such like words. He replied, I saw your watch when I met you, therefore I know you have a watch; and added, I am an unhappy man, drove to it by necessity; I am a gentleman, and a man of honour, and drove to the utmost distress, or I should not use you in this manner; - I insist upon it, or I will shoot you through the head. I did not immediately give it him, but wanted him to put his pistol within my reach, that I might have an opportunity to lay hold on it ; then he put his hat towards me for my watch, and I put it into the hat. He then insisted upon my money; said I, I have but little, and it will not do you much service; to which he replied, don't conceal any; I answer'd, if you don't believe me, search me; which if he had, I designed to have secured him, but he would not, so I gave him two shillings into his hat. He then went off, and turning his horse about, when he was got about five or six yards, said, You shall have your watch again, if you advertise it, for the value of the gold, and then rode very fast off towards Highgate ; and I seeing Mr. Masterman, or his servant, called out for him to get me a horse, telling him that I had been robbed. I saw the prisoner ride by my house, and ran to see whether he turned towards Pinchley-common. I then mounted a horse, took a handle of a rake in my hand, and pursued, and Mr. Masterman's servant mounted another horse, and overtook me at Highgate; there we inquired, and was directed wrong, but found our mistake, and turned again. We never saw the prisoner till we got to the Spaniard at Hampstead. I had described him to the servant. I saw the prisoner turning by Mr. Arnold's corner, so I cut cross through the gravel pits, to meet him at North-end. We also called out as we rode; and when we came to North-end we saw him in the bottom. By this time the people were a little alarmed, and about two miles beyond there he quitted his horse, and took to the fields. My horse was almost knocked up, so I jumped upon the horse the prisoner had quitted. The prisoner had hid himself in a hedge, and before I got to him, he was by some persons dragged out. We took him before

That when he came to North-end he saw a man, which he took to be the prisoner, riding extreme hard; that he did not see him quit his mare; that he was certain the man that robbed him was upon that mare which he himself afterwards mounted; that she then seemed, when he found her, to have been rode very hard, and spurred a good deal.</p>

Mr. Bretley called out to me, to know if my master had any horses in the stable, saying he had been robbed; I said there were two. He then pointed out, saying, there goes the man, but I did not see him. I saddled two horses, he mounted one, and I the other, and pursued him to High-gate, where a man informed us he had turned to the left hand; upon which I rode round the two roads that go to London, and met several persons, who said there was no such man gone that way; then I went to the turnpike, and there I was told that no such person had pass'd through there; we turned again to the left, went to the Spaniards, and enquired there, and was told that there was such a man gone by some little time before. When we had got about two hundred yards from thence, I saw a man riding full speed, and calling to Mr. Bretley, I informed him, that I believed, by his description, there was the man that robbed him.</p>
<p>Q. How did he describe the person who robbed him?</p>
<p>Griffice. He described him as having a thin face, and riding a dark bay mare with a brown muzzle. I saw the man turn at the corner of a house, and take down the great road; for I was in view of him about a mile riding in the road, being rather better mounted than Mr. Bretley. I called out to a gentleman to stop him, informing him that he was a highwayman; then the prisoner turned out of the road, and rode to a hedge, quitted his mare, and jumped over it. There were a great crowd of people got about his mate, and I saw Mr. Bretley get on the mare; for my horse refused to go over the hedge, or I had taken the prisoner in the first field. When I had got up to him, there was a man or two had got hold of him; then Mr. Bretley came up, and after he had tied the prisoner's thumbs, he asked him where his watch was; he said he had it not. We got him into the road, mounted him with a man behind him, and carried him to the Justice's.</p>
<p>Q. from the prisoner. Did you see me dismount my mare, or did she throw me?</p>
<p>Griffice. He was on full speed, and in such a case no man can give evidence of that. According to the description Mr. Bretley gave me, the prisoner is the man that robbed him.</p>

I was coming to Mr. Bretley's house the same time he was robbed, and about forty yards from Mr. Bretley's gate I met the prisoner on the same brown mare, which Mr. Bretley rode afterwards; he was whipping and spurring all the way he went, and I expected she would throw him every minute. This was just after the robbery was committed; the prisoner was going towards Highgate, but there was no mask on his face then. I took particular notice of his clothes and his mare, but I did not so much mind his face. I followed Mr. Bretley, and saw the prisoner, when they had got him into the road, after taken. I saw the mare, and can swear it is the same mare I saw before, and that the prisoner had on the same sort of clothes. The mare was a dark bay with a brown muzzle.</p>

I did not see him when he quitted the mare, but I can swear the prisoner is the man I saw riding, and the mare I believe to be the same, but I did not so much mind her.</p>

As I was coming from Ditton to town, I saw the prisoner come riding down the hill very fast, whipping his horse, and as I rode up the hill they said it was a highwayman, and desired I would turn back again. I was pretty well mounted, so I rode back, and got ground of him every minute. I saw some people coming along, I called out to them a highwayman, stop him, &c. he turned round upon Golder's Green, jumped off his horse, and went through a hedge, and ran over the fields. The hedge was difficult, and I could not jump my horse over, but I went
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175110160005"/> down a little lower, got over, and went down the field; he then got over the stile, and went into the second field; I likewise jumped my horse over the stile, by the assistance of a man to force him, but the prisoner was then out of sight.

When I came to the very door where I live, Byrne and the evidence Wayland laid hold on me, one on one side, the other on the other; they bid m e hold my tongue, and called to the other two to come up. Mallone and the Evidence led me beyond the passage behind the pump; there they bid me deliver my watch and money. I said I had never a watch about me, but my money I would give them; so the Evidence took my money, which was nine shillings and three pence. I had one shilling more, which they left. I believe M'Cane took my hat, for he stood on my left hand, Byrne stood facing me with a pistol, and the other two with cutlasses over my head. M'Cane had no weapon, as I saw, Byrne and M'Cane were both stooping when my shoe-buckles were taken, but which took them I cannot tell. They told me, if they found I had concealed any thing they would blow my brain out. I had a suspicion of them when they followed me, so I had put my watch down in my breeches, and by that means saved it. I described them all in the morning to several neighbours, and how they were armed. I believe they were about eight minutes with me. They were taken up, as far as I understand, within an hour after this, and I saw them about seven the next morning.</p>

Byrne and I first attacked him; Byrne ran the pistol to his chin, the other passed him before, and looked at him, but when they saw we had attacked him, they turned back to us.</p>
<p>Q. Were your weapons naked?</p>
<p>Wayland. They were. M'Cane took his hat, I took the money, and Mallone took the buckles out of his shoes. We were all taken in about an hour after. The prosecutor came the next morning, and said we were the four men. We had spent a shilling of the money. We went into Winifred-street, and in a private ground room of a house there Byrne and Mallone fought about the buckles; afterwards, the men that took us took the things from us.</p>

I looked through the window, and saw a pistol and some hangers lying, but the prisoners seemed in a dispute. A woman went in with some beer, Robinson followed her, and I him; Mallone whipped a hanger up, saying, D - n my eyes, if here is not a grab, then the candle was struck out. I called to Chailes to shut the door, off went a pistol close by my head, and Chailes called out he was shot; I said never mind that. I had then got hold of Byrne, and having a pistol in my hand, gave him three or four cuts before he would submit. I said to the woman, If you are an honest woman go for a candle, so she brought one. The last witness took the silver buckles out of Byrne's hand, and I found this hat in the room. Wayland first submitted. We carried them to the watch-house, and they blamed each other. The Evidence said, Mr. Stanley, if it is possible my life can be saved, I will make a discovery; to which I replied, Then the only thing is to tell of the robbery. Upon which he shewed us the place, as likewise the prosecutor, who told me he had been robbed, and that he knew the Evidence; when he saw the other three, he likewise knew them. They all confessed the fact before the Justice, and wanted to be admitted evidences. I had a warrant from Justice Clark to take up Byrne for robberies committed in George's Fields, and I had told Robinson of him. He saw them, and came and called me out of bed.</p>

We had but a little way home, for we all lodged at Mr. Wadle's, a peruke-maker in St. Martin's Lane. A surgeon was sent for, and there was found a wound on the left side of his head through his scull, which bled very much; he had also a wound on his left arm, and another on his left thumb.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see any weapon in the prisoner's hand when he struck the deceased?</p>
<p>Tompson. I did not, my Lord. The deceased died on the nineteenth of September, and this was done on the 31st of August. I think he did not keep his bed the first and second days, but he never was out of the house after.</p>
<p>Q. Was he on his legs when he received these blows?</p>
<p>Tompson. He was not down at all.</p>
<p>Q. Did the prisoner strike the deceased above once?</p>
<p>Tompson. He did, and they seemed to be levelled at his head.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see the deceased strike the prisoner?</p>
<p>Tompson. No, my Lord, I did not.</p>
<p>Q. Was it a light night?</p>
<p>Tompson. It was not, but I saw this by the light of the lamp. I turned back at the time the deceased called out.</p>
<p>Q. What sort of wounds were there?</p>
<p>Tompson. They were all cuts.</p>
<p>On his cross-examination he said, The prisoner and the deceased seemed always to be very friendly to each other; that he could not tell but the deceased might have struck the prisoner before he turned back; that the deceased was standing in the same place he did when the prisoner went into the middle of the street.</p>

On the last day of August, about eight at night, Mr. Tompson and I went to Mr. Black's in Round-Court, to see for one Mr. Bonner, a painter, for Mr. Tompson to deliver a letter to him, but not finding him I came out again, meeting the prisoner at the bar just without the door; upon which we went up stairs, and had some steaks together. About ten o'clock the deceased came into our company; we were then drinking
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175110160012"/> the third pot of beer. There was a wager laid about the height of twelve new halfpence, when laid one upon another, for a pot of beer, and Tompson lost. Then the deceased and the prisoner wagered about their heights; the prisoner laid that the deceased was not an inch taller than he was; they were measured, and the deceased was taller by an inch and a half, so the prisoner lost. We had six pennyworth of rum and water for the two threepences lost; Tompson paid his, but the prisoner refused to pay his threepence, so the deceased paid it for him. They had words; the prisoner put down half a crown, saying he would not pay the wager, but would spend half a crown with any man, and desired any of us to cover it; but as we did not chuse to spend any more, we all four went out to go home. It struck twelve just as we were going out of the house; we went on till we came to Chandos-street, there they had words, and the deceased called the prisoner scoundrel ; the prisoner said he was no more a scoundrel than he was, and that he was his man at any time; to which the deceased replied, Nothing like the time present. I smiled and said, I hope, gentlemen, you will not quarrel about so small a matter as threepence. I walked pretty hard on towards May's Buildings; being about seven yards before them, I looked behind me, and saw the prisoner give the deceased three or four blows towards the head. I saw no weapon in his hand. I saw the deceased hold up his hands to guard his face, but made no resistance as I saw. I turned back a step or two, and the deceased said, James, I believe Mutter has cut me with something or other; then I saw the blood run much. We walked pretty hard home; when we came there a light was brought immediately, and there was found a large wound on the deceased's left temple, which seemed to be cut. A surgeon was sent for, and upon searching him farther, we found a wound on the prisoner's left arm; it was a cut about an inch and a half long: there was another cut on his left thumb, and a little wound below his eye: they all seemed to be done with a sharp pointed instrument. The prisoner came home with us, and the deceased ordered the watch to be called, to take him into custody.</p>
<p>On his cross-examination he said, The prisoner and the deceased lived together in a friendly manner; that he knew of no malice betwixt them; that he turned about on his own account, not upon the calling out; that it was possible there might have been blows before he turned, &c. that the deceased said, before he died, he was sorry for poor Mutter; that as the deceased was going to be put to bed, (there was Mutter in his own bed) he shewed him his blood on his sleeve, saying, Mutter, do you see your own handy works? Mutter answered, It was all your own fault, you was the first aggressor; then the deceased ordered the watch to be called, to take care of the prisoner: that it was about two or three minutes after the word scoundrel, that he saw the blows; that he had used to look upon the prisoner to be a good natured man, and the deceased likewise; that they were facing each other at the time of the blows; and that he thought the wounds were the cause of his death.</p>

They came in on the first of September, a little after twelve in the morning, and the deceased was bleeding at the left temple very much; my wife held her apron to it, and the blood ran down on the floor; he said, Take care of Mutter, for he has cut me, and I shall die; so his kinsman went and called the watch.</p>
<p>Q. Did he say what he was cut with?</p>
<p>Wadle. He did not, my Lord. When the watch came, the surgeon said, Perhaps the wound may not be dangerous, you had better not take Mutter up with the watch yet; to which the deceased replied, No, I will not hurt poor Mutter, for I do not know what ailed him to hurt me, but I was afraid he would do mischief with the knife. I gave a man a small sword to threaten the prisoner, if he should come down stairs, fearing he might be mad. After that I went up to the room where he was, saying, You have cut Anderson. It is his own fault, replied he, for he struck me on the temples first; then shewed me a little place on his forehead, where he said the deceased struck him. I said he ought not to have taken a knife to him for that, desiring him to give the knife to me; he said he would not: then I said to one Steward, who was in bed with him, Get out of bed, and went to Mutter again, saying, Give me the knife; he replied he would not: then said I, Throw it out of the window, he said he would. Upon which he threw up the window, making a faint motion with his hand, but I did not see any thing thrown away. He did not deny cutting him, but did not say whether he had, or had not a knife.</p>
<p>Q. What sort of a place was that on his forehead?</p>
<p>Wadle. It was a little red, and a little rising, but I took very little notice of it. After that the deceased insisted upon our taking care of Mutter, so the watch was sent for again.</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175110160013"/>On his cross-examination he said, They two lived in great friendship together; that he judged the small place on the prisoner's face was not done with a hand, except it was done with one nuckle; that it was very small, if given at all; that the prisoner was as sober a lad as could be in any body's house; and that they all lived together in friendship like brethren.</p>
<p>Mr. Steward. I was the prisoner's bedfellow, but was asleep when he came to bed; they awaked me, and I saw him sitting in the room: I asked him what was the occasion of that noise? he said he and Anderson had quarrelled about a wager, &c. that he had lost, and that he had refused to pay it in the publick house. Coming out in the street, the deceased called him scoundrel; that he answered, I am no more a scoundrel than you are; and that at the end of the quarrel he believed he had cut him. I asked him what he had in his hand, but he made no answer. Presently after the landlord came into the room, and taxed him with cutting the deceased with a knife, desiring him to give it him, which he refused; then, at his desire, he made a seint, as if he threw it out of the window, but whether he did, or did not, I cannot tell. When the surgeon had dressed the deceased, the deceased came up and said, How could you use me so? the prisoner replied, You struck me first, but the other denied that he ever struck him at all; then he went down, and the watchmen were sent for, who came and took the prisoner away.</p>
<p>Mr. Kelley. I am a surgeon. I was called to the deceased between twelve and one in the morning on the first of September, and found him bleeding from three several wounds; I dressed them, and attended him to the day of his death. During the course of my treating him, I found none of the wounds in any danger, except that on his temple, and that I believe was the cause of his death. I found the instrument, which must be sharp pointed, had penetrated the scull, and wounded the brain.</p>
<p>Q. Was the deceased sensible ?</p>
<p>Kelley. He was not delirious at first, but was afterwards at times.</p>
<p>Q. When did he die?</p>
<p>Kelley. He died on the nineteenth of September. His other wounds were one upon the back part of his left arm, the other on the left thumb, and a little scratch under his eye; they all appeared to be done with a sharp pointed instrument; the flesh was raised on his thumb, but not cut intirely off, it being only divided from the part; that on his head was on the temperal bone. I was with him the night before he died, about the hour of ten, he was then insensible, and he died about two the morning following.</p>
<p>Q. Did he ever say any thing to you about this quarrel?</p>
<p>Kelley. Sometimes he would exclaim against the prisoner, saying, he could not think how he came to do so bad a thing.</p>
<p>Q. Did he say what he struck him with?</p>
<p>Kelley. He said he did not know he had struck him with any thing but his fist, till he found the blood running down.</p>
<p>Q. Did he say he had struck the prisoner?</p>
<p>Kelley. He said he did not strike him; but he did not tell me the particulars of what passed in the street, as I remember.</p>
<p>Q. Was he in his senses when he said he did not strike the prisoner?</p>
<p>Kelley. He seemed as if he was quite master of his senses at that time.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>On the 31st of August the deceased and I came out of this house in Round-Court in the Strand; we had some words about a wager for a pot of beer. When we came to Chandos street, he called me scoundrel, and said he would kick me, but on my saying I would not allow it, his cousin came and prevented him. After that, he said he would fight me for a guinea, then for a crown; he also struck me on the forehead, which caused a bump.</p>

On the 21st of last month I had been into the city; upon my return I found the prisoner in the shop looking at some lawn. As I passed by her, I heard one of my servants tell her, he was surprized she should offer him less than half the value of it. I took notice of her, and apprehended, by her appearance, she could not have occasion for such a thing; and, by her offering so low a price, I thought she could not come to buy, but to steal. This made me determine to watch her; but I had occasion to leave the shop for four or five minutes; and at my return again, I saw between her and the compter, as she was fitting, something that seemed considerable bulky; she was putting it under her petticoats. As soon as she saw me drawing nearer, she lifted up the right side of her gown next me, and covered it. When I came up to her, I could not see what she had got; but upon my passing behind her, and going on the other side, I saw part of a piece of printed cotton; about eight inches of the selvidge lay upon the floor uncovered at her left side, the rest of it was under her petticoats; the piece was folded. I went behind the compter, and looked at her again. I took a book and laid it before me, and with a pen made believe I was
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175110160015"/> writing. At the same time I observed she kept drawing it up under her petticoats. After I was sensible she had drawn the greatest part of it up, I went forwards and spoke to three or four people of mine near the door, and ordered them not to go backwards to prevent what I thought was going forward, and if she took the piece of cotton away they should follow her and bring her back again. Soon after, she came forward, and went out into the street; as she was going out, I saw part of the cotton hang down below her coats. When she was gone 20 or 30 yards, I sent two of my people, Mr. Maycomb and Mr. Boston, who brought her back. They carried her backwards; a mob gathered about the door; I stood there; she dropped the piece of cotton as she stood; I sent for a constable; he searched her; and, in my presence, he found a remnant of lawn upon her, my property, under her petticoats; both produced in court and deposed to</p>

After that she went out of the shop; I did not see her take the lawn or printed cotton; he looked on the piece of cotton and lawn. These are Mr. Eyres's property; the cotton is worth 3 l. the lawn 10 s. and more. The piece of cotton came from the printer's that morning, and was lying on the compter when she came in.</p>

I had been out of the shop some little time; when I came in again, Mr. Eyres told me the woman had taken some cotton. After that she came forward; I saw something hang down, it dragged the ground, as Mr. Eyres had described. Then she went out of the shop; so he ordered me and Mr. Maycomb to follow her, and bring her back. We went after her, and took her before she had got far; we brought her back, and placed her in the middle of the shop, I on one side of her and Mr. Maycomb on the other ; he stooped down and picked up the piece of cotton which she let fall to the ground.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see it fall?</p>
<p>Boston. I did not; but when we brought her into the shop, there was nothing lying upon the ground. I wrote the initial letter of my name, and the initial and final letters of my surname upon the cotton. After that, she complained she was not well, and sat down upon a stool; then the constable came and searched her; I saw him take the piece of lawn from her, on which I wrote my name with a black pencil; it is hardly to be read now, but I am positive it is the same. Then she was committed.</p>

<p>Maycomb. We let her go out of the shop in order to take her. After she bought the lawn she went out of the shop, and we followed her; she had not gone above 20 yards before we apprehended her, brought her back, and placed her in the middle of the shop, where she let the piece of cotton fall from under her petticoat; I took it up and wrote my name upon it; it is Mr. Eyres's cotton; it came that forenoon from the printer, I asked the prisoner how she could do so; she seemed much affrighted, and desired a glass of water, and to sit down. The constable searched her; I saw him pull the lawn from under her gown or petticoat; it is my master's lawn.</p>

(which there was.) We went with them before Justice Fielding the next morning, where Rakes said, Sir, I will tell the truth, adding, Mr. Tipping said we jumped from the step of a door, but we crossed the road, laid hold of him, and robbed him of a hat, knife, and a halfpenny. He was asked if this was his hat which he left with Mr. Tipping; he said it was. The Justice then asked Clark what he had to say for himself; he said he could not deny but both of them robbed the gentleman. When they came away from thence, Clark d - d the other, adding, You might have saved your life, but now you have hanged us both. There were four of us to take them.</p>

<p>Jervise. His mother told me he was fourteen years of age. He came to me to be my errant-boy on the 30th of September. I am a turner. On the Wednesday following, he took an opportunity of going into my compting-house, the door not being locked, took out a guinea in gold, and eight shillings in silver, out of a drawer. The next day he took two sixpences.</p>
<p>Q. How do you know this?</p>
<p>Jervise. By his own confession before me and several others. My wife told me on the Wednesday morning there was so much money deficient in the bag. The boy being in the shop, heard us talking; I mistrusted him, and told him he should go before my Lord Mayor if he would not tell; which he did. I have got one shilling again from him.</p>

I sent a guinea to change; the lad could not get it changed, so I did not pay her, but gave her half a crown, and bid her come for the rest in the morning. I looked over the things, and missed one large table spoon, three tea spoons, a strainer, all silver; two shirts, a pair of sheets, two table cloths, and one napkin. She did not come for her money. I sent my boy to enquire amongst her acquaintance after her, why she did not come for her wages; but could not hear of her. I went to Justice Lediard and had a warrant of suspicion; I advertised the things; I had the large silver spoon brought by Mr. Gunston, a pawnbroker in Piccadilly, his boy had stopped it. I desired him to look if he had any other of the things. After that, he brought me two tea spoons, tongs, and strainer; I asked him in what name they were pawn'd; he said in the prisoner's for six shillings; I paid him. Two days after that, I had another pawnbroker from the corner of Coventry Court, with two shirts; in a short time he brought one table cloth and one napkin. About a fortnight after, I had intelligence where the prisoner was; so I got a constable, and took her before Justice Lediard. She acknowledged the taking the things as soon as I took her; she also did the same before the Justice. She had pawned some of them in the name of

<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>I did not take them in the way of theft, I was his servant, and when I was short of money, as he would go away three or four days together, being a stranger in the place, as every thing I was to pay for, except meat, bread and beer, was obliged, at times, to carry out these things, but not with an intent to wrong him; I thought to have fetched them home again, and put them in their places when he paid me my bill. I have had but half a crown from the day I went into the house.</p>
<p>Prosecutor. Whenever she asked for money she had it. One day she brought a little trifling bill, it was the time she talks of; I had been out two or three days; I then left her half a guinea; and whenever I went out, I always left her as much as I thought necessary.</p>
<p>Q. What did you owe her?</p>
<p>Evans. I owed her about 1 l. 3 s.</p>
<p>Q. What need had you to send a guinea to change, when that and the half crown would have paid her?</p>
<p>Evans. When the boy came back I said it was as well, and might be lucky it was not changed, for then I could have an opportunity to look over the things before I paid her.</p>
