[He shewed a pair of tongs much bent.] These tongs, when I went to bed after making all fast, were standing in my chimney in the parlour; I found in this condition, laying in the shop, the things mentioned in the indictment gone; the prisoner and evidence absconded, they lived in the neighbourhood, I knew them well. On the Monday after a man came to me and said there was a drawer lying in the field behind Holywell-Mount, I went and found it to be mine ; there were some old cloaths laying by it, which I apprehended might belong to the prisoner. I took an officer and went and searched the prisoner's father's house on the 21st of November, but could not find him: then I went and searched Guest's house and took him. I took him before justice Withers, there he owned he, the prisoner and the prisoner's brother Joseph, rob'd me of the goods mentioned, that the prisoner and he had sold them, some at Salisbury, some at Newbery, some at Bristol, and some at Reading ; he had on a cap and a pair of shoes, my property, which I then lost, I found nothing more.</p>

Some of the things we sold going, some there, some coming back, I don't know the towns names; coming back the prisoner took seven silver spoons out of his pocket and flung them away, they being mark'd fearing they should be catched, the prisoner throwed the drawer over into a field by the side of Holywell-Mount, I pulled off my old rag of a shirt, a waistcoat, and apron, and throwed them away a little distance from the field where he throwed the drawer.</p>

I still made no offer to give it him, but was thinking to myself whether I should or should not. Then he said, Sir, I am in great distress, give me any thing you can spare. Then I took off my glove and put my hand in my pocket, and was going to give him some money, but had a thought to count it, which was 6 s. and gave it him. I had my watch in my pocket, the chain hung out, he never ask'd for that; but said, thank ye sir; I said, much good may do you; and at that time I had no thoughts of going after him: I recollected I had seen some people as I came, I rode back, knowing if I gave the alarm he must be taken; he went off towards Uxbridge.</p>

She went with me, the pawnbroker delivered it to me, it was pawn'd for 1 s. 6 d. The prisoner was brought to me at the Red-Cross in Red-cross-street, by Mr. Fuller. I said to him, do you know me ? he said he remembered something of me. The constable held the candle down under the table. I looked on the buckles in his shoes, and knew them to be mine. I ordered them to be taken out, which they were, [the three buckles and medal produced in court and depos'd to.] I lost several poundsin money, but I cannot fix it on the prisoner.</p>

I was at home, his daughter and my wife were with me; he came in and asked his daughter if she wanted any money? the girl said yes? he asked her if she would have gold or silver; she said half-pence would do, so he pulled out a linen bag, but I was reading. I did not see the money, but heard it chink; he gave her some halfpence, and said I have got a piece of gold left still. On Tuesday morning I went to work, he did not, we are both carpenters, and work together. Mr. Rule was at work with me, he was at the fire. I asked him if the gentleman had given the prisoner any thing for assisting at the fire? he said he did not know. Said I, his daughter show'd my wife several things; he was all of a tremble, and said, I wish the gentleman is not robb'd. The prisoner told us he was going to buy himself a new waistcoat. I saw him that day at night with one on, we not having opportunity to talk then, agreed to meet at the Green-Dragon in Moorfields to talk more about it, so after I had done work, I went and found Mr. Rule there. We agreed to acquaint the Gentleman of it, which we did. I described the silver shoe-buckles to him, with mens faces upon them, he said he had had them several years by him, and also an odd knee buckle; so he agreed to come the next day with a warrant; he did, and sent for me to the Anchor in Coleman-street, to take up the girl. Rule and I were sent by the prosecutor to secure the girl; we met the prisoner at the end of Beach-lane, we brought him in at the Red cross to the prosecutor. The constable told him he had a warrant against him from my Lord Mayor, for robbing that man at the fire, and that we had found some things already. The prosecutor ordered the candle to be held down, he look'd at the silver buckles in his shoes, and said they were his property. Then the constable took them out. I was with him before my Lord Mayor, he there said he found the buckles just by the place where the prosecutor took the out of his hand. When he was going to Newgate, he said he found a bag on the floor, but said rat me, there was not above 2 d farthing in it, that he found a box, but there was nothing in it but gum, and that when his acquaintance came to hear he was in trouble, he should get the things and he'd send them to the gentleman.</p>

I had some mettle to melt that was very offensive, and ordered my man to come betimes in the morning. Last Tuesday he came just after three o'clock, and was let in about four. I was alarmed with constables and watchmen. I came down stairs, and one of them told me, they had taken two of my men with a great parcel of lead. They had brought Foste r, with his arms bound. Hope was at his fire melting. I told Foster, I had seen him before. He said, he used to come to bring messages to Hope, and that he had the lead of him; that one of his feet was in the shop, and the other out at the time, about an hour ago: and that there was another young man in the watch house that was with him. He said, they were to carry the lead to Hope's lodging at Islington. Then I charg'd a constable with Hope, he beg'd for mercy.</p>
<p>Q. Did he hear what Foster said?</p>
<p>Cunnick. He did. Then I went to the watch-house in St. Martin's le-Grand, and saw Howard, who told me the same that Foster did; that they had it of their master Hope. That he and Foster, lodged at the same house where Hope did, and that over night, Hope had asked them, if they could get up betimes and call him? he had a jobb for them, and should pay them; that they did, and came all three together, that when they got near my house, he planted them against the church wall, and gave them this signal, that when he shut the door, they were to come to it; Foster said, he was the first that came up; Howard said, he stood on the other side the way, and Hope carried his parcel to him, and put it on his shoulder. I then saw the lead, there was about a hundred and half of it, one piece of it is a large, deep sea lead, for a man of war, and there is fifteen ingots produced in court, and deposed to, all cast in the prosecutor's moulds. Howard is a countryman, he cry'd much, and said he was intraped into it.</p>

I call'd to another watchman; we secured them in the watch-house, the constable examined them separately, they both said as the prosecutor has mentioned. Foster said he could tell us where they had it. Howard said he could not find the place again. We took Foster, he brought us to the prosecutor's-house. We knock'd at the door, Hope opened it. Foster said, that is he that gave us the lead. We asked Hope if he had any authority to give such persons lead, he said he had. Then we said we must speak with his master. He came

<p>Hope's Defence</p>
<p>I cast all the lead myself that very morning; master sent me on the monday morning to buy all the lead I could, we being to cast on Tuesday. I carried some on the Monday. I went as soon as I awaked, and carried the remainder of it. I melted it. I asked these two men over night if they would do a jobb for me. I told them when I had cast it, I would call them, they were to stay in the church yard. I call'd them in about 3 quarters of an hour, and gave it them to carry home, it being my own lead.</p>
<p>Foster's Defence.</p>
<p>I was at work for this man on the Monday, and at night he asked me if I could get up early in the morning, saying he'd satisfy me. I did, we went together to the prosecutor's house, when we came to the church, he bid us stop till he called us. When he called us we went, and he gave us the lead to carry to his room.</p>
<p>Howard's Defence</p>
<p>Hope asked me to go along with him, which I did. I did not know what I had to do, or what I had on my back, till I was stop'd.</p>

On the 15th of November, about seven in the evening I was going home, going up Lombardstreet about 15 or 16 yards behind me, I heard some blows like men fighting. I heard the word sodomite, there I saw two or three men in a fray, I went to them, I saw the prosecutor receive a violent blow on the side of the head; after that he made towards me. He knowing me, he call'd out, You know me, I did not know him at first, but upon his second time calling I knew him. I said what is the meaning of all this? to the prisoner and the other man. How dare you use a man in this manner? One of them said D - n him he is a sodomite. I said I believed him to be a very sober, honest man. They swore a pretty deal he was. I said you look to be two very suspicious fellows, and I shall know who you are. They said they had never seen one another before. There were many people then gathered together, presently the other was missing. Said I to the prisoner, I think you have a very ugly look. He talked of bringing several gentlemen to his reputation, and amongst-the rest one Mr. Heath in Crooked-lane. We secured him and took him before my Lord-Mayor and he was committed.</p>

I told him at a house in Buckle-street, Goodman's-fields; he swore he did not know where he should lie, but if there is money to be had, he'd have some; we had a pint of beer and a dram of gin, he call'd me out and said, if you'll take a walk with me, I'll get money. We met Roberson by Tower ditch side. I have known him 7 years ; he told me he had not been at sea this four months; that he could not get his R off. We had a pint of beer. Said he, you are a true hearted fellow, we'll make ourselves. How Tom? said I, said he, there is a barge with 15 chests of money in her, and wanted me to go and we might conquer all the few people on board, and get it. We met Gilson in Goodman's-fields, between 3 and 4 o'clock. We had some discourse, Robertson wanted to go into the Minories, saying that was the best place to rob in, there being most to be got, the other said not, and that he used to mill their cloaks withoutside Aldgate at the ship, I said I think White Chapel by the Dead-Wall is better. We went there; this was about 6 o'Clock, Robertson asked what Arms we had, Gilson swore a bloody Oath, here is a thing, and pull'd out a Pistol from his Pocket, wrapp'd in a Handkerchief, he gave it to Robertson, who-said he must put more Prime in it. The first we met was a Soldier; Gilson struck him with a Stick, and took his Hat: I said, throw the Man his hat again; then we swore the first person we met we would have his money, then we went into Church-lane, there we stood a good while. We saw the prosecutrix and another person. Gilson said, damn your blood there is a prize, said I, don't be so hasty, he ran directly and said. damn his soul if he'd come away. She began to cry. I heard him swear a bitter oath he'd have it, the woman with the lanthorn run, he swore at me for not knocking her down, saying, why don't you out with her glim?</p>
<p>Q. Where did you see the prosecutrix before ?</p>
<p>Summers. I lodg'd in her house about two months ago.</p>
<p>Q. How long did you lodge there?</p>
<p>Summers. About three weeks.</p>
<p>Q. How long have you followed this practice?</p>
<p>Summers. Never till last thursday night. I call'd to Gilson fearing he should use her ill, and said, there is no good there. We went from Buckle-street to White-chapel, then to the Minories, then to the Black Horse in Rag-fair. There came in a ynsman of mine a shoemaker, he bit his lips and call'd me out, saying, what company are you in? did not I tell you what Robertson was, that he keeps company with pick-pockets. Said I, I am afraid they will bring me to the gallows. I told him a woman we robb'd knows me. He said never mind it, sit down and eat your bread and cheese, I'll put it fast asleep.

I then paid 3 d. more and went away. They were all 3 together at the Coach and Horses, just where I live, in a street joining to Wellclose-square. After this Summers came to the door and said he was inthralled he had robbed a woman, and said he wished he had not done it, and wished somebody would take him up. I went and found Stanley, Morris, Hammond and Mackdaniel at the India Arms; I told them an acquaintance of mine had been in a robbery, I left them at such a place. When we came there they were gone, we went and searched farther on and took them at the Black-horse; Gilson owned to the taking the handkerchief.</p>
