I got up and found a cabinet in the parlour broke open, and the things mentioned in the indictment missing. I went to see which way they got into the house, and found by scratches on the inside of the wall, a person had got over that, and down a funnel where I put my coals into the cellar, and from thence into the house. I immediately sent my sister to the prisoner's lodgings to enquire whether she was at home; she returned and said she had been informed there she came in at about four in the morning. I got a warrant, and had her before Justice Lediard; she could not give an account where she had been, but at first denied knowing of the things; she was committed for farther examination. On the Sunday my sister went to her lodging to see if she had hid any of the things; she is here and will give an account of it. The prisoner was re-examined and was shewed the things mentioned, except the gold case of the watch and a handkerchief. (The goods produced in court and deposed to.) Then the prisoner confessed taking them, and that the gold case was in a closet in the room where she lodged: the constable, I, and others, went there and found it as she had said; she gave me the key of her box, in which she said was a gause handkerchief, which I found accordingly; she said she was alone in it, that she got a chairman's horse on which they carry their goods, from whence she got over the wall, and down the funnel into the house, and took the things.</p>

(he produced a knife and soldier's cockade) this is the knife he had liked to have killed me with; this cockade was torn from off him in the scuffle, he took my partner's studded watch out of the cupboard.

I had a long staff; I said, stop, you sir; he said, what must I stop for: I said, if he would not, I would knock him down; then I seized him by the collar. We led him into the turnpikehouse; we ordered him to pull his gloves off, having been before told, that the turnpike-man had bit the man's thumb that robb'd him. We saw one of his was bit. He was carried to St George's round-house. Then we sent word to the prosecutor we had taken him, and about eleven o'clock he came and swore to the prisoner before Justice Fielding.</p>

She said she knew nothing of it. The constable said, he believed she had dropped something under her; I looked down, and there found my ruby stone; she was taken to the round house and searched, of which the woman who searched her will give an account.</p>

I bid him look under her, saying, I thought she had dropt something, he took the candle and looked, and there he found the ruby stone. (The stone produced and deposed to by the prosecutor.)</p>

<p>Holaby. It opens into the street, and was open at that time.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure the raisins and jarr were taken out of Mr. Rawlinson's cellar?</p>
<p>Helaby. It had on it the same mark as the other had which were then near the cellar door</p>
<p>Prisoner's defence.</p>
<p>I was going down to the water side to see for work, it was duskish; there was a man dress'd much like a carpenter, he asked me if I would earn 3 d. or 4 d. I said with all my heart; then he said he would pay me if I would carry that jarr to White-chapel, and said he would be there as soon as I. I came up Mincing-lane, and coming by Mr. Rawlinson's door, they stopp'd me.</p>

On the 14th of March, I advertised the watch with two guineas reward, after which Robinson sent for me, and said, he and others could help me to the woman and watch too Then we went to Rag-fair, and got a warrant from Justice Gore, and came to the house where I lost my watch in Orange-court, Drury-lane; it was dark; from thence to the Plough again; in a little time they brought me the two prisoners, and the old woman that is released; I said I could not swear to them, for having been drinking about, my head was quite muddled; the old woman said, after the women were gone, why don't you keep them two women? they are the woman that robbed you of your watch; then the thief-takers ran out after them, but could not find them.</p>

I call'd the maid to take care of the shop, and ran after her and overtook her; but not being willing to accuse her till I was quite sure. I told her I had found a remnant of irish stust that would suit her, and in the mean time I put my hand under her long scarlet cloak which she had on, and felt two pieces, she dropped one of them in the dirt; then I called for assistance and got her into the Cambridge perriwig warehouse, and sent for Master.

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175204080010"/> to the best of my knowledge they were dark brown horses. Something before I came near him, he got nearer the foot path. As I got right against him, the first word he said was where are you going. I made no answer; said, he, I want to speak with you; he said so two or three times. I said, I had nothing to say to him, he came to the foot path with his horses in his hand, and laid violent-hands on me, he put one hand round my neck, and the otehr on my petticoats; my apron he slit in the binding: I begg'd of him to let me go home, for I had a poor family in distress with the smallpox, he took no notice of that, but got me down and swore he would have his ends of me; he said, damn you for a bitch can't you hold your tongue; he used my mouth in such an indecent manner that he set my mouth and gums a bleeding I saw a man pass by on foot; I was in hopes he would help me; I called murder: no help came: the prisoner dash'd my head against the ground, pulled me by the hair of the head; he bit my shoulder with his teeth; I had a great bump on my head the next day: in the struggling I was up once, and then I saw the man that passed by in light colour'd cloaths, standing on the causeway at a distance. The prisoner got me down a second time, and pulled me about so monstruosly, that I can hardly express it; I begg'd of him to shew me mercy, and told him that his mother was a woman. When he had satisfied his lust he let me get up a second time: after I had got from him, he called after me, and asked me, what money I had got about me, I had 3 s. and 10 d. in my pocket; thinks I, this villain will take it, I put a six-pence in my bosom, and said, I have no money; I shewed him my pocket, he took out two shillings, and two six-pences, and four-pence in copper, I had a small parcel of lobsters and cross-buns, and told him it was nothing but victuals, which my mistress had given me where I had been at work ; he said, take it, and go about your business while you are well. Then I went to the half-way houses, all three of them, to get a person to go along with me to Highate; at the Pyde-Bull, which is the second house, they told me, there was a man just gone from thence to Highgate, which they thought I might overtake; at the farthest of the three I got a man to go, and paid him before hand 3 d. out of the 6 d. I had in my bosom; he went with me almost to the Black-Dog at Highgate; I sent him back and went home, but told no-body of what had happened. I did appoint to come home on the Friday night, but on the account of Miss Jeffreys being executed I staid till Saturday: My husband being come from the pay-table and being a little in liquor, I did not tell him my misfortune that night, but on the sabbath-day morning I acquainted him with it; and told him the man was a very particular man, had on a brown stable frock, an hostler's cap, a strip'd waistcoat, and that he had no heard no his face, and a sawney looking whelp, and that if he trac'd the road he might find him.</p>
<p>Q. What do you mean by sawney ?</p>
<p>E. Humphreys. His face shone yellowish. My husband got up in great wrath, and went to the Queen's head at Holloway ; and as I told him of the two horses, he there was told, the horses belonged to the Dunstable waggon ( she not being with her husband could not be admitted to give evidence of hearsay) after my husband came home he told me he had seen the man, and knew where to find him. On the Monday, which was Easter-Monday, I went to his master's stable, at the White-hart, in St. John's-street, where he was hostler; I saw him, and asked him, if there was a Bedfordshire waggon came in that day; he said, there would be one in the afternoon; I asked him, what the price would be to go to Biggleswade or Temslord: he said, if I came about three or four in the afternoon I might see the waggoner ; then I went out of the yard and told my husband, I was sure he was the man; my husband then went and laid hold of him, and so did I, and I said, you are the villian that used me ill on Saturday night and took my money; he asked me, what money?</p>
<p>Q. During this ill treatment of you, what became of the horses?</p>
<p>E. Humphreys. They were grasing on the side of the causeway all the while, they were near me, I call'd out in the time, the horses would tread upon me, he said, they should not hurt me.</p>
<p>Q. Were they tied?</p>
<p>E Humphreys. They were not, except the bridles were tied together, they were near me all the while.</p>
<p>Cross examined.</p>
<p>Q. Was the causeway near the high road?</p>
<p>E. Humphreys. It was.</p>
<p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175204080011"/>Q. Which way was he going with the horses ?</p>
<p>E. Humphreys. He was coming from Highgate to London.</p>
<p>Q. Whereabouts in the road was this?</p>
<p>E. Humphreys. It was something before I came to the first bridge.</p>
<p>Q. How far from any house?</p>
<p>E. Humphreys. About two or three hundred yards from the houses.</p>
<p>Q. Was there no people passing?</p>
<p>E. Humphreys. There was no-body passed by at the time, but that man I mentioned.</p>
<p>Q. When you was up and saw that man, how far was he from you?</p>
<p>E. Humphreys. He was farther than the length of the sessions-house, perhaps twice the length.</p>
<p>Q. How far had you gone from the prisoner when he came up and took your money.</p>
<p>E. Humphreys. I had gone farther than the length of this court.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see the stranger then?</p>
<p>E. Humphreys. No, I did not.</p>
<p>Q. Did he mount the horses afterwards.</p>
<p>E. Humphreys. I did not observe that.</p>
<p>Q. Which way did he go afterwards?</p>
<p>E. Humphreys. He went for London.</p>
<p>Q. Why did not you tell the people where you called, you had been robbed?</p>
<p>E. Humphreys. I was very much shocked afterwards, and have been ever since.</p>
<p>Q. Why did you not tell your neighbours at home that you had been robbed?</p>
<p>E. Humphreys. It was late, between nine and ten, when I got home, and I never had been in such an affair before.</p>
<p>Q. Did you, or did you not, ask for an hostler, who had a farm to let in the country?</p>
<p>E. Humphreys. No: I never said such a thing.</p>
<p>Q. How near was that stranger to you when he past by?</p>
<p>E. Humphreys. I am sure he was as near to me, as I am to that gentleman. Pointing to a gentleman about two yards from her.</p>
<p>Q. What prevented your calling to him?</p>
<p>E. Humphreys. I did call out murder and all could cry.</p>
<p>Q. Was that stranger nearer Highgate or Islington, when you saw him?</p>
<p>E. Humphreys. He was nearer Islington.</p>

I was coming from Holloway home, betwixt eight and nine o'clock in the evening: near the end of the back-lane I heard a woman groan; I staid some time to consider whether I should go forwards or not: I then went on and went close by them: the woman was down upon her back, her cloaths up, her legs open, and the man upon her; she said, for God's sake, master, help; Murder! Murder! the man said, hold your tongue, you bitch. There were two horses grasing on a bank close by them in the foot path.</p>
<p>Q. What sort of horses?</p>
<p>Tipping. One was a little poney, the other larger, I judge about fourteen hands high: by what I could discover, I thought the man had hold of the bridles, or the halters. I was afraid there was something more in it than should be, so I dar'd not stay to assist.</p>
<p>Q. Was it light or dark?</p>
<p>Tipping. It was a star-light night, but I had not light enough to distinguish so as to know their persons: I saw the man had a pair of leather breeches on, and a hostler's frock and cap.</p>
<p>Q. What colour was the frock ?</p>
<p>Tipping. I did not observe that.</p>
<p>Q. What coloured cloaths had you on.</p>
<p>Tipping. I had the same on, I have now ( i. e. very light colour'd.)</p>
<p>Cross examined.</p>
<p>Q. Which way was you going?</p>
<p>Tipping. I was coming for London.</p>
<p>Q. How came it, that you saw a man and woman in this situation and did not assist?</p>
<p>Tipping. Because there are so many traps laid to draw people in, such as stratagems of women crying out, and the like.</p>
<p>Q. How did this appear?</p>
<p>Tipping. The man seem'd to be lying with her, and the woman crying out: and by seeing the two horses, I imagined there might be more hard by.</p>
<p>Q. How near was you to them, when you first heard it?</p>
<p>Tipping. I believe I was within thirty or forty yards of them.</p>
<p>Q. How far was you on the other side, when you made a stop?</p>
<p>Tipping. I was thirty yards from them.</p>
<p>Q. How came you to find them out to give your evidence?</p>
<p>Tipping. I read in the paper that a man was taken up, and hearing the woman was one of a good character, I sent a letter up to her.</p>
<p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175204080012"/>Q Did you see the woman when she was upon her legs ?</p>
<p>Tipping I did not, they were on the other side the nor from me; I could not see whether they were up or no.</p>
<p>Q. When did you first relate this affair?</p>
<p>Tipping I related it to two or three people that evening.</p>
<p>Q. Why did not you, when you got to the houses, alarm the people?</p>
<p>Tipping. When I got to the first house, I did design to go in, but I saw at that time a man, which I supposed to be the man, came riding by full speed, so I did not go in.</p>
<p>Q. When he pass'd you, had he any similitude to the prisoner ?</p>
<p>Tipping. I had not an idea enough of him to know that.</p>
<p>Q. When did you send word to the prosecutrix of your coming by at the time?</p>
<p>Tipping. I sent word on the Wednesday following.</p>
<p>Q. Had you seen the woman before?</p>
<p>Tipping. I never saw her till I sent the letter.</p>
<p>Q. Did you meet any other people on the road at this time?</p>
<p>Tipping. No, I did not see any body.</p>

<p>Capt. Collingwood. I am an acquaintance of my Lord Lempster, and was likewise of the unfortunate deceased. On the 23d of February last, I dined with my Lord Lempster, at the Bedford-head, who told me, he had seen Capt. Gray, the deceased, that morning upon guard; I said, I had not seen him but should be very glad to see him; my Lord proposed to go to
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175204080013"/> the Tilt-yard coffee-house to him; I agreed to go. We went about eight in the evening, and there we found the captain alone, and joined company with him in a room above stairs. My Lord had once at a masquerade refused to lend Capt. Gray ten guineas; they had some words after supper, I think about twelve o' clock, between them, about the circumstances of refusing,, &c. I can't tell the particulars; the first affronting words I heard, was Capt. Gray gave my Lord Lempster the lie, which was without any thing amiss, for there had been very good language used before; then upon this my Lord Lempster called him rascal and scoundrel, which Capt. Gray returned with many abusive words. Mr. Gray at last jump'd up and drew his sword; my Lord Lempster had not his sword, upon which he jump'd up and got to it. I ran in between them, and got up to Capt. Gray, and was very busy in keeping them at a distance; there was, no advances made; I insisted upon their sitting down again, and putting up their swords, which they both did, I told them as there was nobody present but me, that I should never divulge any thing that happened, and they were safe in my hands.</p>
<p>Q. How long might they stay after this quarrel ?</p>
<p>Capt. Collingwood. I believe they might stay an hour, and they behaved very well to each other, seemingly good friends, and had no quarrel that night.</p>
<p>Q. Whither, during that interval, they did not go into the passage?</p>
<p>Capt. Collingwood. Not as I remember, we went all down stairs together; we left Capt. Gray at the coffee-house, and my Lord and I went away together, we parted at Charing-Cross, he went towards his lodging, and I to mine.</p>
<p>Mr. Hudson. I keep the Tilt-yard coffee-house, I was not in the coffee room when my Lord Lempster and Capt. Collingwood came there, but came in soon after, which was about nine ; they were all three sitting at a table: I paid my respects to the gentlemen, and made them a bowl of punch ; they drank it, and seemed extremely sociable for some time; I cannot tell how the topick came up readily, I know it was something about lending some money. Capt. Gray seemed to harp on it. Capt. Collingwood said, you might have given him a civiller answer; and at such a time when a man is in a hurry at play, the Capt. might have excused him, that it was a hurry, and my Lord had no intention to affront him. Capt. Gray turned his head on one side and said, d - n you. My Ld. Lempster turned and talked to me about some horses, seemingly to evade it: Then my Ld. said, Collingwood, will you go and sup any where? and seemed intirely to evade it, but Capt. Gray at several intervals harp'd upon things. I think he mentioned the Cardigan; said Capt. Collingwood, with all my heart; said Capt. Gray, can't you as well sup here; my Lord said, he had no objection to the house. I went up and got a fire; this was between eleven and twelve: they went up and had some supper and more punch: I waited supper myself, which was over, I believe, about twelve. I was backwards and forwards several times in the room; they called for a pack of cards and play'd; my Lord and Capt. Collingwood play'd, and Capt. Gray sat by; then Capt. Gray came out and went his rounds, and returne d again, after which, I was in my own room a little way off; I heard a noise like showing back of chairs: I then came to their room door, and heard Capt. Gray say, D - n your blood, you scoundrel, come out; you rascal, you coward, you dare not come out. After that, I heard my Lord, who was then sitting in a chair, jump up, and said, No, Gray, I cannot put up with that; he went cross the room: I was cautious of going in, but looked through the key-hole of the door: there was Capt. Collingwood standing with Capt. Gray, he said, I beg you'll desist. My Lord advanced no farther than the table; Capt. Collingwood pacify'd Capt. Gray, and set him down again. I never went into the room at all. Had any thing happened, I could easily have gone in and laid hold on my Lord, his back being towards me: I had the latch in my hand for that purpose. They sat down after this seemingly good friends, and continued together so an hour or more. I did not think it was any more than a little drink, and did not expect it would have come to such a heighth as fighting. After this, they had another bowl of punch, which I made; when they went down stairs I lighted them down ; after this was over, before they went down, my Ld. Lempster, I believe, and Capt. Gray, were in the passage ; the lights in the passage were burnt out that I could not see; Capt. Gray ordered me to shut my room door and go in, which I did: I knew Capt. Gray's voice perfectly well.</p>
<p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175204080014"/>Q. Did more than one person say shut the door ?</p>
<p>Hudson. There was talking in the passage, but I could not distinguish the voices, there was some whispering like, I can't take upon me to sware my Ld. Lempster was one.</p>
<p>Q. Was Capt. Collingwood one?</p>
<p>Hudson. I can't take upon me to sware he was, they drank a bowl of punch after this. I lighted Capt. Gray to the guard room about five o' clock: he came in again the next day about eight and breakfasted; he asked me, where Lord Lempster lived; I said, I did not know; I looked at him pretty-steadfastly, and said, I hope that little dispute is over, and there is no more of that: No, he said, no more : then I told him where he lived: then I taxed him again, and said, I hoped there is nothing at all in that affair; he said no, there is not; I am going to breakfast with him, and the affair is made up, and if I don't go he'll take it amiss.</p>
<p>Q. to Capt. Collingwood. Do you recollect your being in the passage that night, when the last witness was ordered to shut his door?</p>

Gray: I remember on Monday the 24th of February last, about eight in the morning, I was at the Tilt-yard guard-room; there was another officer on guard, he asked Capt. Gray where he was the night before, he said, at the Tilt-yard coffee-house with Lord Lempster and Capt. Collingwood; to the best of my remembrance they talked of indifferent things; nothing of this affair; he did say Lord Lempster had used him ill; but heard no more of that; he told me to go up to his lodgings and bring his mourning cloaths, and be at the Tilt-yard coffee-house by ten o'clock; and a pair of stockings and a plain hat; I asked him, if he would have his mourning sword; he said, no; (at other times I have brought his mourning sword with his mourning cloaths) he gave me orders to bring a yard of black ribband. I was going in at the horse guards as the clock struck ten; he was on the parade, I waited about an hour, when he was relieved: he went towards the coffee-house, as I supposed, to seek after me; I followed him there, and went up stairs and he after me; I dressed him there, he put on mourning cloaths, but not a mourning sword, he bound the ribband about the hilt of a silver mounted sword.</p>
<p>Q. How did he appear at that time?</p>
<p>Fudge. I thought he was confused, his countenance did not apper serene, he throwed things about in an odd manner, and called for some brandy and milk.</p>
<p>Q. Had he used to drink such liquor?</p>
<p>Fudge. I never saw him, sir. He went out of the coffee house about half an hour after eleven o'clock.</p>
<p>Eliz. Cross. I live servant with Mrs. Whiy in the Hay-Market. I remember, between eleven and twelve o'clock, Mr. Gray came and asked, if Lord Lempster lodged there, and if he was at home, and also, if his servant was at home; he desired I would go up and tell Lord Lempster his name was Gray; my Lord knocked at the wainscot for his servant and called Robert: I told him his servant was gone out, then my Lord desired I would shew the gentleman up; as I came down stairs I met my Lord's servant: I then walked about my business and said nothing to the gentleman, nor he to me; as I thought my Lord's servant a more proper person to do it than myself. I did not see the gentleman go up stairs.</p>
<p>Q. Do you remember you saw my Lord and the gentleman go out that morning?</p>
<p>E. Cross. I did not see that.</p>
<p>Q. What time do you think they went out?</p>
<p>E. Cross. I believe they went out before twelve o'clock.</p>
<p>Cross examined.</p>
<p>Q. What did the gentleman say his name was ?</p>
<p>E. Cross. He said his name was Gray.</p>
<p>Q. Had the servant been out of the house.</p>
<p>E. Cross. He told me he was going out to have a coat mended, and I did not know but he was out till I saw him.</p>
<p>Q. Do you think Lord Lempster heard Mr. Gray's voice.</p>
<p>E. Cross. I can't tell that. I was up no more than three or four stairs, and answered through the wainscot. My Lord might hear the knock at the door, but Capt. Gray spoke low.</p>

<p>Q. How far was that field they were in, from the Hay-market ?</p>
<p>Powell. I believe it is a mile or better; a very little time after I had seen them, not having walked above three hundred yards, I happened to turn my head by accident, they were engaged with swords, both naked, Capt. Gray had turn'd with his face toward London, Lord Lempster stood in a line as he had walked, I had a side view of them; immediately I cry'd out to them, not to kill one another, I ran towards them, and had got but a very little way, before Capt. Gray dropp'd on his knee, and got up again, and advanced a step or two, and then fell on his face, he never rose more: while Capt. Gray advanc'd in this manner, Lord Lempster stood then upon a retreat, with the point of his sword dropt; when the Captain fell on his face, Lord Lempster look'd upon him a little time, and said, O Lord! O God! What is this! in a mournful voice like surpriz'd, and then went off; I immediately went over the ditch, the deceased was vomiting blood as he lay on his face, I kneeled down by him and turn'd him on his back, I held up his head with my left hand, and asked him how he did, he opened his eyes very wide, and fix'd them, he vomited a torrent of blood, and died instantly; I wiped his mouth, and hop'd he would have spoke, I open'd his waistcoat and pull'd up his shirt, and saw a small wound in his right side, there was a small effusion of blood: Lord Lempster went off hastily; I follow'd him, and came up with him just at the entrance in the town in the street, my Lord came up to me, and told me Capt. Gray had call'd upon him on this occasion, that the Captain was an officer, and so was he, and said, Sir, what could I do? I could not help it, he made me go out with him, or forced me, and I am sorry for it.</p>
<p>Cross examined.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see any thrust after the Capt. was fallen upon his face?</p>
<p>Powell. I did not. The Capt. advanced up to my Lord before he fell, and put out his sword: I was a good deal confused : I could not take a minute's observation of it.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see my Lord return a thrust, after that putting out his sword?</p>
<p>Powell. No, Sir, I did not.</p>
<p>Q. Did you go up to my Lord, or he to you?</p>
<p>Powell. He stopp'd and came from the other side of the way rather towards me, and entered into talk of this unhappy subject.</p>

<p>Lord Lempster being called upon to tell the court what he had to say, spoke to the following purport.</p>
<p>Lord Lempster. I have only to say, I am extreamly sorry to be the unhappy occasion of Mr. Gray's death, as he was a gentleman of great honour, and for whom I had great regard, I made use of all the arguments I could, in order to dissuade him from his intentions, that is not to fight, when we went on our way; when we came to the field, he drew first upon me, and I was under a necessity of killing him, in my own defence; for which I am verily sorry, and wish it had never happened.</p>

<interp inst="t17520408-30-person232" type="gender" value="female"/> </persName> . I am wife to John Saunders. On the 27th of December last, between six and seven in the morning, my husband bade me clean myself, and said, I must go with him and Campbell ; I did, we went all three together; Campbell carried a basket, but what was in it I did not then know. When we came on London-bridge we met a relation of my husband's: he staid to talk with him, and bid me not to leave Campbell. We went together to Long-Lane, on this side the water, near Smithfield.</p>
<p>Q. Where did you live?</p>
<p>E. Saunders. I live in St. Mary Magdalen Bermondsey parish ; Campbell lodged with us, we went to the sign of the Bull; Campbell left me there, and took the basket with him; and said, he'd go and see for Cordosa: He returned in about a quarter of an hour, and said, he had seen the man, and that he would meet us at the Taylor's-Arms in Duke's-place. We went there and found the prisoner ; he asked Campbell what he had got, he answered plate. He took out a silver quart belly tankard, two pint pots, one a new fashioned one with a belly, the other an old one, and a silver tea pot chased half way down. Campbell asked, what he would give per ounce? he said, he would not give above 3 s. and 6 d. per ounce for the tankard; because there was a great deal of loss in the solder and the handle; and 4 s. per ounce for the two pint mugs and tea pot. They agreed; then Cordosa went out, and brought in a pair of scales and weights,
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175204080018"/> he weighed the tankard first, it weighed 25 ounces ; then the two pint mugs together weighed 26 ounces; and the tea-pot, which weighed 17 ounces, he abated an ounce for the handle of the tea-pot, so made that but 16; then he reckoned up the money: it came to 13 l. 8 s. which 8 s. he kept for the loss as he said, that would be in the melting of it down. I was a little surprized. The prisoner turned to me and took me by the hand, and said, Madam, don't be surprized, for your husband is a very clever young fellow, and if he can trust to Campbell not to betray him, he may be worth a thousand pounds in six months time; he need not be afraid of coming to me, for if it were the King's crown I would buy it with safety. My husband was not there. Then he talked to Campbell, and told him he was a very lucky man never to be taken, considering he was the last of fourteen left alive that he was acquainted with, and that he would advise him to keep out of Rag-fair; saying, now you are so happy as to be acquainted with a man, whose name was never brought in question before, he might always be safe; by which, by his looking to me, he meant my husband. He wished him good luck, and then we parted. Campbell talked to him, as though he was acquainted with him.</p>
<p>Q. What was the cause of your fear ?</p>
<p>E. Saunders. I had reason to suspect the things were not honestly come by; my husband and Campbell had talked of some things made me think so; and being amongst Jews and strange people, I would have been glad to have been out of the place.</p>
<p>Q. How long had Campbell lodged at your house?</p>
<p>E. Saunders. From the 8th of September last.</p>
<p>Q. What was he?</p>
<p>E. Saunders. He was a seafaring man.</p>
<p>Q. from the prisoner. Whether or no, when that witness came to take me, a little girl did not set me, she being uncertain of me?</p>
<p>E. Saunders. I was sure as to the prisoner; I went to one Buckland's, a house were he used to be at over against the Bull in Long-Lane, where I was the day before. Stanley and Macdaniel, two thief-catchers, were there to take him. Stanley gave me his gold watch, and told me to go there and send for Cordosa to offer it him to sell; that he might have an opporportunity of taking him. I went there, and asked the woman of the house to send for Mr. Cordosa; she sent a girl for him, he came ; I told him I had a watch belonging to the two young men that were here yesterday. The moment he came to the door I knew him. Before I had time to say what I intended, the thief-catchers came, and asked, if that was he? I said, this is the man, and took him.</p>
<p>Prisoner's defence.</p>

<p>Stebbing.

I told them I was neither able nor willing to resist them, and hoped they would not use me ill: two of them held me by the arms, whilst the third rifled my pockets: they took from me my watch, and half a guinea, and about nine shillings. One of the robbers was in a white coat of the make and size of the prisoner at the bar; I saw his face very plainly more than once during the robbery, and verily believe the prisoner is the man, but I dare not positively sware to him; but this I do positively sware, that a man was coming up the hill and near us, while the robbery was committing, and the man in the white coat went to him and bid him retire, or he would beat or blow out his brains, or to that effect. I little thought to have heard any thing of the robbers; but the next day, my wife having occasion to buy something in the neighbourhood, heard that there had been a robbery committed in that place the night before: that one Perrin saw the robbery, and knew one of the robbers; he is servant to one Mr. Brumley: I sent for him; he came; I asked him, whether he had seen a robbery on the hill the night before; he said he had; I asked him, what part of the hill: he said, that part that is over against Hog-Island, which was the very place. I saw the prisoner in New prison the day after his apprehension, and I had a strong remembrance of his countenance but don't sware he is the man.</p>

I was got near, but drove back by the prisoner at the bar; he held a stick up to me, and said, d - n your eyes if you don't turn back again about your business, I'll knock your brains out; he was in a white duffil coat. I retired and went directly into the still-house, and there staid: I told two of our men, that had just come out of the tun from throwing off the grains of it; and that I knew one of them very well; and that the other men that was with him were rifling the gentleman they were robbing, while he came to me.</p>
