I pass'd them about fifty yards, and stopping to make water the prisoner came up to me, and asked me whether I would give her any thing to drink. I asked her for what? she said it was very cold. I put my hand into my pocket; I had but three pence, and gave her three halfpence. She then went up to a publick house in Poplin's Alley, and asked me to go in with her; I did not go in. She came out again and went from me a little while, a minute or thereabouts. I was then going about my business, but presently after heard somebody cry halloo. I stopt and the prisoner came up to me again, and said. What have you got to say to me? Have you a mind to have a touch or no? I said I had got no more than three pence. She said, D - n you, what is that! I said I had got no more. Well come, says she, I'll give you a toss off for that; so I gave it to her; she came fumbling up against me, and with that I directly miss'd my watch.</p>
<p>Q. How do you know you had the watch at that time ?</p>
<p>Cross. I am sure I had; for just as I came out of the publick house in Holbourn, I look'd to see what it was o'clock.</p>
<p>Q. Did you feel the prisoner put her hand in your pocket?</p>
<p>Cross. No, I did not feel her take it.</p>
<p>Q. How soon did you miss it?</p>
<p>Cross. I miss'd it before I parted with her, and charged her with having it. I search'd her and rumbled her about as much as I could, but did not find it; here is a witness that found it. She said she was big with child, and desired I would let her alone. I was going to leave the watch with her, thinking not to be exposed; but the next witness came up and said, Young man, what is the matter? I told him I had lost my watch, and desir'd he would search her. I saw him search her, and saw the watch drop from between her legs, and the glass was broke in the fall.</p>

I told them I could not look at them that night, for it was too late; they came to me the next day for the money or the goods. I bid them go to some place and stay a little; they went to a publick house by Long Acre, where I went to have them stopt. When I stopt the prisoner the other ran away, and the prisoner then said he brought the things from a house on Little Saffron Hill. I said, How did you come into the house? He said there was a fellow that broke open the door, and that he went in afterwards and put them in the bag, and brought them away. I then sent a man to Saffron Hill to inquire what house was broke open. He found the prosecutor talking that his house was broke open; he brought him with him, and they took the prisoner to Justice St. Lawrence's.</p>

<p>Humphrys. I did not. I collared him and threw him down on his back: while I was tussling with him there came up another man and struck me over the head, I believe with a stick; he followed his blows after that I imagined with a hanger, and cut me in four places on my head; then he that attacked me first took me by my middle and threw me into the ditch; there I was stunned, and they rifled me; they took my hat and wig from my head, then my watch from my fob, a guinea, three farthings, a tobacco-box, spectacles and case, out of my pocket, and a dead pig which I had got for my Sunday's dinner. There I lay some considerable time in a gore of blood, feeling it come out of the knee of my breeches into my shoe. I got up upon the causeway very faint, and scrambled along, and in about five or six hundred yards met three men coming towards London, and begged their assistance, who saw me to my habitation though they were strangers to me.

Mason met Humphrys the prosecutor, and wished him a hearty good night, and spoke with a chearful voice that we might hear; the prosecutor came up, and I laid hold on him, but had a lame hand, having had it run through with a sword, so could not do much, and he got me down upon the causeway; I got him on his back in the ditch, and got his silver watch out in the struggle; but he would not give up his money to the prisoner; Welch took a hanger and pushed it at his mouth, which took him in the chin; I called out to him to let him alone, then Welch bid me cut his throat; I said there is no occasion, he is easy enough; then Welch junior said, two old women could have done the business sooner than you have.</p>
<p>Q. Did he come to you?</p>
<p>Kirby. No, he stood in his place; then Welch senior gave the prosecutor a stroke on the head first with a hanger, and after that with a stick; and he broke the stick and left part of it in the ditch; Welch took his money from him, but at that time he did not acknowledge it to us, but said he had no money. I staid a little while to search, and found he had a pig tied up in two cloths, which I took; after the next robbery Welch acknowledged he had a guinea and some halfpence from the prosecutor, and paid us.</p>

<p>Mason's Defence.</p>
<p>On the twenty-second of September I went over to the Two Brewers in Maynard-street, and wanted that woman to ask the landlady to lend me fourteen shillings to take out some things which I intended to pledge in some other place for more money; this money was in halfpence, and they sent the soldier with me to see what I wanted it for. I went for the things in West-street, Seven Dials, and carried them to Mr. Bibby's, a pawnbroker; they lay for thirteen shillings, and Mr. Bibby lent me a guinea on them, after which we went into Clare Market, and got a breast of mutton, and some pork steaks; then we came to Mr. Reding's at the Two Brewers, and had the steaks dress'd. At that time I believe it might be about nine o'clock, and I borrowed the money about seven.</p>
<p>Q. to S. Harvey. Are you certain as to the time you mention?</p>
<p>S. Harvey. The child was sick at Mr. Reding's, and a man took out his watch to see about its time to take physick, and I know it was near ten when the money was lent Mason.</p>
