<p>Newhouse. It was open, I felt and found I had lost two handkerchiefs; I searched the prisoner and found one of my handkerchiefs on the ground just by him.

<p>M. Tottey. She had that skirt on, and a ribbon of about 3 qrs. of a yard on her head. I dressed her myself that morning; but when she was brought back she had neither the skirt nor the ribbon on. I had sent this and another to school together that morning.</p>

<p>Joel.

<p>I happen'd to go to this house to buy a hat, and said to Mr. Smith, Let me see one of the best hats you have, and I'll give you a good price for it, I said I'll take one upon your word; so he chose one. I said, line and loop it, and I'll call tomorrow morning for it; I said, could you oblige me with a Queen ANN's half guinea, or a guinea; he went to his chest, and pull'd out about three or four 36 s. pieces, and some guineas in gold, and said you are very welcome if there are any here, your eyes are better than mine, you may look and see; there were none; the daughter went up stairs and said, I'll go and see if I have any. She brought down a Queen ANN's guinea, I said that would not do; then Mr. Smith wrapp'd his money up in a rag as before, and lock'd it in his chest. I went away, and when I was got a good way, a boy came running after me, and said, Sir, was not you at master's shop, I said, Yes; he said, master desires to speak with you; I went back with him; I said, do you know what he wants, the boy said I don't know. When I came there I saw a great many people running backwards and forwards; Mr. Smith said, there is a little mistake between you and I; I have been looking over my money, and I miss three guineas ; I said if you miss twenty, is that a reason that I must have them. I pull'd out all my halfpence and some gold, and laid it on the counter, and said if here is any money which you can swear to, I'll be willing to be punish'd according to law, he catch'd hold of three guineas of mine; I said, what do you mean by this, he said go about your business, you have got my money; then he charg'd an officer with me, and I was committed upon suspicion. He could not rightly swear he had lost any thing. This is all the work of a person now in court, that informs against the bawdy-houses and my friends: when he took me up he said, if I'd give him five guineas, he'd let me go, and if you are trie d you'l be hang'd, I said I shall give you no money.

Wood wanted to be admitted an evidence against Benson and this woman, and mentioned their being concerned in robberies together in the streets, and at Deptford. As we went in the street with him, he was known to be a person that had return'd from transportation before his time, so we gave no attention to his being an evidence in the year 1749. We went by his direction to Cock-Hill, where we found Benson and the prisoner, they had taken a room, and had bought some household goods, and she was putting them to rights in the house. Benson had got intelligence of us, and he was taken in the streets. We search'd the prisoner's pockets, and found four or five penny-worth of halfpence, a 4 s. 6 d. piece of gold, two tea-spoons, and a strainer, which Mr. Anderton swore to, which we took and her rings, and we took the buckles out of her shoes. When they all three went to gaol, I return'd the money, and gave them 2 s. each; she told me I knew the pawnbroker, one Mrs. Richley, and said she had pawn'd a quart silver tankard, and two large spoons there for five guineas.

How he came by them? And how those Writs had been obtained? He informed the Court, that he was Clerk to Mr. Miles, who was out of Town; that he had the Writs delivered him by Mr. Miles's Brother, the Distiller; and that he himself knew nothing further of the Matter. - Which Answer not being satisfactory to the Court, the Court was pleased to order him to take the Writs back again, to recommend an Enquiry how those Writs had been obtained, and the Trials to be called on.</p>
