<p>Q. Had you light enough to see them ?</p>
<p>Bugg. There was a light directly opposite to my shop; it was not very moonlight; there were lights in other shops, and a lamp at my door; I saw them both as perfect as I do now; I can particularly swear to them both; after they had done, Broughton said, Don't look after us, turn your head another way, for if you do, I'll blow your brains out, so I turned about towards Long-Acre till they were got about three or four rods; then I went into my shop and told my wife, and shut the shop up, and in about a quarter of an hour came the watchman; I said to him, I wished he had come sooner, I had just been robbed, and related the particulars, and how they were dressed, and their size, I could swear to them; they were both in blue-grey, one a tall fellow, the other a short think fellow, with a horseman's coat and boots on, and a whip in one hand, with the thong twisted round it. He said, let us go and search two or three houses here
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175202190003"/> abouts of ill same. We went, and, in Newtoner's-Lane, by Drury-lane, we saw the two prisoners standing, as though they were in conversation, against a wall; after we had passed them, I pulled the watchman by the coat, and said softly to him, they are the men; then the prisoners went into Drury-lane towards the Cole-yard; we followed them at a distance, thinking they might go into a house; at the upper-end they stopped again, and we went up after them ; they turned into the Cole-yard, and there we lost them; then I said to the watchman, let us get more help; I had told him before they were armed; then the watchman went and got a constable, while I staid in Drury-lane; then we went and searched a house or two; the watchman had me to the Crown and Scepter alehouse, to a man that knew some of these people; the landlord said, after we described them, that they had been at his house drinking ; he also told to their names, and said, he knew them well; he went and loaded a pistol; then there was a cry of stop thief, and in less than half an hour the prisoners were taken.</p>
<p>Q. How long was it after you was robbed that you went in pursuit of them?</p>
<p>Bugg. In about half an hour's time; I saw them before the Justice, and they appeared in the same cloaths they had on when they robbed me, only their hats and wigs were off; the arms and whip were dropped in the street, and produced there by some of the people; I did not see them searched.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see your penknife again?</p>
<p>Bugg. No, my Lord, I did not.</p>
<p>Q. from Broughton. What did he know my face by, had I any particular mark?</p>
<p>Bugg. When he was before the Justice, he had a mark of a flambeaux on his face, but when he robbed me, his face appeared as it does now.</p>

<p>Steward. I once saw him write a letter in my lodgings, at my table, and afterwards he gave it to me, and I read it; his name was to it, I know his hand writing as well as I know my own.</p>
<p>Q. When did he die?</p>
<p>Steward. He died on the 1st of May. (He is shew'd several papers.) Two of these are my hand writing : the note mentioned in the indictment is not my writing.</p>
<p>Q. Is the name to that his hand writing?</p>
<p>Steward. It is not at all like his; here is not a letter in it like his writing; I used to be extreamly intimate with the captain for many years.</p>

Agnue when he signed the note and received the money; that they were drinking a pint of hot red wine; I knowing he had not drank red wine for some time before he died, I asked whether he drank one or two glasses, they could not tell; they all gave a different account of their coming there; one said Capt.

<p>Dagg. He did, before the Justice; but he had owned before he had seen Capt. Agnue sign it. I wanted him to be an evidence; he said, if I would put him on the back of the bill, he would do what service he could; said I, can you prove the forgery? he said he could not.</p>
<p>Mr. Webb. I am the High Constable of Holborn division: I was at the Rose Tavern : I can only say what Mr. Dagg has said, which I know to be truth. Fox, as a confirmation, said, the piece of paper, on which the note was wrote, was taken out of his pocket-book, but there was no pocket-book produced.</p>
<p>Mr. Mackenzey. What Mr. Dagg has said is the truth of the case. Fox said he knew the Captain very well, for he was the son of Sir

<p>Agnue's defence.</p>
<p>I went to Capt. Agnue, when he return'd from Gibraltar, to one Mr. Syms's to pay my respects to him, we being acquainted. I told him what the Duke of Cumberland had proposed to do for
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175202190013"/> me in the last rebellion, and told the Captain I did not know which way to get a petition given to him : he said he would give none, nor carry any to him : I asked him, if he knew any friend that would? he said, if I would get one drawn up, he would find a friend who would: I got a petition drawn, and gave it him, and I gave him twenty-four guineas to carry on a law-suit for me, thinking he being a gentleman, would prevail on an attorney better than I: and

<p>Fox's defence.</p>
<p>As Mr. Gale and I were coming from Chairing-Cross, Mr. Agnue called me in at the Lebeck's Head, where I saw the gentleman whom they called Captain ; they were busy in talking together; he asked about money, whether it was giving or receving, I cannot tell, it was not my business; I saw some money deposited on the table, how much, or the use of it, I cannot tell. I can say no more, I may as well be hang'd for nothing.</p>
<p>Gale's defence.</p>
<p>There was some money on the table, but for what I can't tell; afterwards he said there were twenty-four guineas; it was something about a law-suit; I am pretty old and my memory fails me; I never saw the Captain before in my life.</p>

(I thinking it had been my husband) said he, it is none of your husband: he put his hand into the bed, and laid hold on me, and said, but I will do so and so to you, make no resistance, your husband will be at home in two minutes: I catched hold on him: he said, be quick, for I will, speaking in a very vulgar manner: I held him fast by the coat; said I, how came you into my house? he said, G - d blast your eyes, you old b - h! I said, Lord, what makes you use me so? who are you? will not you, you old b - h, speaking it out in a vulgar manner: then, said he, go to hell and be d - d for a b - h: then I felt my things going off the bed: I lost three candlesticks from off my mantlepiece, a cheque apron, a cap, a hood that hung on the chair, one brass pepperbox, one gridiron, three brass knobs off a stove, and a fireshovel: he went out and pulled the door after him.</p>
<p>Q. Had he any instrument in his hands?</p>
<p>R. Cook. He threatened me and affrighted me so, that I did not see any thing in his hands. I saw the back of him as he went out, and when he was in the street, I saw him out of the window by the light of a brandy-shop. I was drawing on my stockings when my husband came in; he asked me if I was mad; I told him there had been a man, that came once before with a pretence to take a room, (which were all the times I had seen him) and had taken such and such things: my husband looked about to see what was gone: I described him and he went to the alehouses. When he was gone the prisoner came upon me a second time; then I saw his face and his cloaths; he said, G - d d - n you, you old bitch: I said you are the man that
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175202190015"/> robbed me ; then he went like an arrow out of a bow, and turned down Turk's-head-conrt.</p>
<p>Q. Did you cry out when you were in bed, when became to you?</p>
<p>R. Cook. He threatened me so that I was affrighted, and had not power,</p>
<p>Q. Are you certain the prisoner is the man?</p>
<p>R. Cook. I can say, to my great sorrow, that he is the man.</p>
<p>Q. How did he come into your room?</p>
<p>R. Cook. The key was left on the outside the door.</p>
<p>Q. What time did you go to bed?</p>
<p>R. Cook. About seven o'clock.</p>
<p>Q. How came you to go to bed so soon?</p>
<p>R. Cook. I was taken with a great heaviness and was so for some days.</p>
<p>Clarles Hilton. On the 13th of December, between eight and nine o'clock, as I went out at my own door, which is just by the corner of Green-Artour court, within a door or two of Mr. Cook's, I saw the prisoner, with a candle lighted in his hand, standing as if he was making water; About half an hour after Mrs. Cook came running to me, and said she had been robbed of every thing she had in the world, and that her husband was standing like a man out of his wits.</p>
<p>Prisoner's defence.</p>
<p>I was drinking at a publick-house that night from six to nine, when I went away; I then went to the sign of the Three Pigeons to ask for my wife; she was not there; I then went to the house I had been drinking at, and when I came home found my door broke open: there were two or three men took told of me, and said I had robbed the prosecutrix; they brought her to me in a ragged gown: said she I am almost sure the prisoner is the man.</p>

After that when Mr. Barnard was robbed of his gold watch, four guineas, two shillings, and other things, he suspected the prisoner: he asked him in my hearing concerning it; the prisoner denied it. I heard something of him, which gave me reason to suspect him; we took him before the Alderman; going along he confessed the fact to Mr. Barnard: then he confessed to me, and then before my Lord-Mayor, and several Aldermen, that he picked the lock, and broke open the buroe, and took out a pigtail wig; that he drank some green usquebaugh, and another man, a breeches-maker, was in company with him, he staid till he had but four guineas left: when going to Newgate, he then confessed that he took

On the 26th of December, about three o'clock in the morning, two men came in and called for three pints of beer: before the boy could get down into the cellar, one of the men said, I am surprized to see you so dilatory, to be up yourself and have your cellar window open, than opens in the street: immediately the boy, in the cellar called out Aunt! Aunt ! here is a thief in the cellar. I ran down, saw the prisoner at the bar, with a silver tankard in his hand; he put his hand over a butt, dropt the tankard, and it broke a powdering pan. I took hold of him, and asked him what business he had there! The watchman came to my assistance.</p>
<p>Q. Was that window fast do you know before?</p>
<p>A. Ward. I am sure it was, there was a plate broke from the kirb.</p>
<p>Q. What sort of a window was it?</p>
<p>A. Ward. It is a standing door and a slap under it, and stairs to go down; I had just put two tankards on a butt-head before, one of which he had.</p>
<p>Q. Did he let fall this tankard behind the butt he took it from?</p>
<p>A. Ward. No, my Lord, it was two butts distance.</p>
<p>Q. Could it have fallen there by rowling from the place where it stood?</p>
<p>A. Ward. No, it could not, without the butt had fell. (She produced two tankards, and deposed it was one of them, but she could not tell which.)</p>
<p>Q. How came you to be up at that time?</p>

<p>Q. Did you see him have the tankard in his hand?</p>
<p>Austin. I saw tankards there, but I did not see any in the prisoner's hand; I saw the powdering pan broke.</p>

<p>Mr. Wilmot. On the 28th of January, about seven in the evening, the prisoner brought the silver mug to my house, and said his name was Durham, and that he lived at the glass-house in Fleet-street: said I, you are not that Mr. Durham: he said he was his brother; said I, if your brother will come and satisfy me it is yours, I'll lend you money upon it: I sent my servant over to Mr. Durham's to enquire, and in that time the prisoner desired I'd either let him have some money on it, or the tankard again: I said, I did not chuse that; he threatened me, and went from the shop; I laid hold on him; he turned about and we collared each other; I kept him till my man came back, who said Mr. Durham was not at home; then the prisoner mentioned another man in the neighbourhood, one Mr. Clark, whom he knew, who advertises to take things out of pawn; Mr. Clark let me know the prisoner had been there, that he did not know any thing of him: then I sent over to Mr. Durham for some body to come to confront the prisoner; the maid came and said, the prisoner was not her master or master's brother; he still insisted upon it that his name was Durham. I asked him if he knew

<p>Q. How long is it ago since you saw him first ?</p>
<p>Allen. The first time is about nine weeks ago; I remember he then said he was come from Yarmouth, and had been robbed by a German: I once gave him a pair of old shoes ; he said he was going down to Bristol to his mother; but instead of that he was still in Kensington ; he said after that his mother lived at Reading, and he has been gone sometimes for a fortnight together, and sometimes for a day or two.</p>
<p>The prisoner bad nothing to say.</p>
