He sent for her; she went with me to Mrs Folier's lodgings, one that buys old cloaths; she went with us to Mrs Hambleton in Monmouth-street; I did not see the spoon that night, but after that it was brought before Mr Welch, there I saw it.</p>

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175901170004"/> after, in the morning. I was going to see about, to find the remains of what were scattered about; one Smith told me he saw a bundle of things carried into Herbert's house; I went and got a warrant from Justice Barry, and went and searched the house, and found a sheet and a towel; there had been my name on the sheet; we could see a name had been picked out, so I can't swear to them. Mrs Herbert told me her husband was gone to pawn a petticoat in Long-Lane, Smithfield, and that Conner had brought a bundle in for him to pawn with that in it; I went in pursuit of Herbert, and found him with the petticoat upon him. It was not quite finished; I am pretty sure it is my wife's property, but she is not in a condition capable to attend the court, so is not here. I lost more wearing apparel, that I have great reason to believe was not consumed in the flames, to a great value.</p>

He came to tell me I might get work where the fire had been; I am a carpenter and joyner; he desired me to call at his house concerning some money I ow'd him. When I came there, they said the landlord Herbert was gone off with some things stolen from the fire; I said he was at my house; I told them he said if the things got wet (for it rain'd) it would be the ruin of him. I and a constable went back to my house with another man, and found he had left word with my wife he would call again at two o'clock: I went with the constable at the time, and took him at my house with the petticoat; he said he had met the lady in Rosemary-lane, and they had drank two bottles of wine together.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see the things the first time he came to your house?</p>
<p>Walmsley. No, he did not open them. The petticoat produced in court. This I saw taken out of his handkerchief before the Justice.</p>

<p>Conner's defence. My fellow-prisoner brought the goods from the fire; I was at his house the next day, and there were he and other people picking the marks out of the things. I ow'd him six shillings; he told me he would acquit me of the debt, if I would not inform against him. I call'd for a pot of purl, and before I had drank it the people came in, and his wife told them I brought the things in there, and they took me.</p>
<p>Herbert's defence.

<p>Foy. The watch was taken off a place where it used to hang, and the buttons from out of a drawer; I knew Dayland before; my wife knowing the number of my watch, went to the Pawn-broker's to inquire for it; she found that at Mr Murphy's house; Dayland own'd she took them, for we suspected her; she was seen

<p>Mr Murphy. Crouch brought this watch to me; and after that the prosecutor's wife came said she had lost a watch with the same name and number; then I had her taken up; Dayland brought the buttons; Crouch was angry with Dayland, and said, How could you give me a watch that was stole; Dayland confess'd she stole it.</p>

<p>Murphy. To me it did: for Dayland said nothing in answer to her question: but at last confess'd she did steal it. The watch produced in Court and deposed to by prosecutor.</p>
<p>Dayland's defence. The prosecutor's wife lent me the watch unknown to her husband.</p>

<p>Q. Where was this?</p>
<p>Hawkins. This was in the alley where the robbery was committed.</p>
<p>Q. Was that at your first seeing her?</p>
<p>Hawkins. It was when she was coming round at the corner of some old houses, and Bulger and the prosecutor were standing at the wall together.</p>
<p>Q. Did Bulger make her any answer?</p>
<p>Hawkins. Bulger said to her, Blast my eyes! I don't know what I am doing, for he has got a comical c - k, and will not let me feel; then Dick Spencer knock'd the prosecutor down directly.</p>
<p>Q. Where was the prisoner then?</p>
<p>Hawkins. She was there; just as Bulger spoke the words,

<p>Prisoner's defence. I know nothing of what they charge me with.</p>
<p>Q. to prosecutor. Hawkins says, when she came up, there were none but you and Bulger together.</p>
<p>Prosecutor. I was going along that place, and and the prisoner and Bulger were coming one at the back of the other; the alley is not wide enough for two to go a-brest; they were both together at that time.</p>
<p>Q. Do you mean when you was going back again to go out of the alley?</p>

<p>Q. Was you sober when you went to bed?</p>
<p>Gaston. I was.</p>
<p>Q. What did you lose?</p>
<p>Gaston. When I went to bed, I had three guineas and a half in my purse, and a watch with a black shagreen case; these were all in my breeches, which I laid under my head, and in the morning, breeches and all were gone.</p>
<p>Q. What reason have you for charging the prisoner with taking them?</p>
<p>Gaston. There was nobody in the room but she; I took her before a Justice of the peace, and she denied having taken them.</p>
<p>Q. What time did you awake in the morning?</p>
<p>Gaston. I was awake at twelve o'clock in the night, and heard the watch going under my head; she call'd to me at four o'clock, and said the soldier and his wife were not come to bed; then I fell asleep, and slept 'till near seven o'clock, then I miss'd the things, and she was gone.</p>

<p>Gaston. Her husband, as she calls him, is in the Marshalsea-prison, and a person that lives near More-fields, delivered it to me; he said, he had it not from the prisoner, but he had it from her husband, or another man from the Marshalsea-prison.</p>

<p>Gaston. He is not here: I had also my breeches return'd me by a prisoner in the Marshalsea-prison.</p>

<p>Sarah Banford. The prisoner came into my house the 4th of December, for a pint of beer; she desired to toast a piece of bacon at the fire; she had a little knife like a pen-knife; she got to my pocket as I sat by her, and took out two Half-guineas, two gold rings, and some silver. When she had done, she got up and ran away, and left half her pint of beer; I presently ran after her, but never catch'd her 'till the Saturday following, in St Giles's.</p>
<p>Q. Did you perceive her to take the things?</p>
<p>Banford. I did not mind her when she was doing it; I took her before Justice Fielding, he could not make her confess any thing for a great while; I offered to give her the money if she would confess the rings; then she confessed to the Justice.</p>

I was not at home when it was taken, but I came home soon after; a child told me some men had taken it; I went in pursuit of them; I went as far as Aldersgate-bars; a young gentleman went with me; then I went into Charter-house-square, on the right hand; when in the square, I met two men and the prisoner with them; he had my pot of honey on his head, but before I could come to them they shifted it from one to another. I went to lay hold of the prisoner, and he throw'd the pot of honey on my arm, which, by my preventing it from falling to the ground, least it should break, it prevented me from securing him for a little time; he struck me and us'd me very ill, but at last, I overcame him, and paid him pretty well; the porter of the Charter-house came to my assistance.</p>
<p>Prisoner's defence. Is it feasible to think that I should take the honey away, and am not able to buckle my shoe; I had been to carry a coat to the scowerer's, and went after that into the Square to look after a shipmate of mine; and there I went to do my occasions, I let down my breeches, and this man came and said, You have robb'd me; and I absolutely befoul'd myself in abundance. I know no more of the honey, than I know of the sacred God.</p>

<p>Q. Had she access to the room where the bureau stood?</p>
<p>Sanderson. She had, and no body else, beside my wife and I; she went up that day to make the bed as usual; after she was come down, I went and told my money, and miss'd a shilling; I call'd her to me and examin'd her about it; she denied having taken any. I insisted upon searching of her; then she pull'd out her things from her pocket, presently she pull'd out the key of my bureau, and after that came out my shilling; I saw the mark upon it. I said, This is the key of the bureau, and this is my shilling; and told her she took the shilling about half an hour before. I charged a constable with her; then she confessed she took the shilling before me and the constable of the night. I took her before Mr Alderman Gosling, there she said she found the key, but did not know the use of it.</p>

I am a lodger in the prosecuter's house; they told me they had a suspicion the maid had robb'd them; they took the prisoner into the kitchen, and desired her to pull the things out which were in her pocket. She took out some small money, but did not pull out the key or shilling for some time; then the mistress desired the pocket might be turned inside out; then she pull'd out a key and a shilling. When the constable was coming in, I said, Here comes the constable; she desired I would speak to her master for her; they charged her; she down on her knees, and confessed to the taking the shilling, and said she found the key under the bed.</p>
<p>Q. Did she say where she took the shilling from?</p>
<p>Lee. No, she did not; she begg'd to be forgiven; the mistress said she would forgive her no farther than the law would go. She said she never took any money before that; he desired his wife to fetch down the money that he had marked, and the shilling was marked as the rest; I shewed the shilling to the Grand Jury here yesterday, but whether by pulling out my handkerchief, or by what accident, I know not, but I have lost the shilling; the Grand Jury looked at it.</p>
<p>Prosecutor. Here is the other money which I marked the same as that which we found on the prisoner.</p>
<p>Prisoner's defence. I found a shilling upon the bed when I went to make it, that I sent down to mistress by her k inswoman; after that I found a key and a shilling under the bureau; my master sent me to carry same beer to the Fleet, and then directly took me into the kitchen, and charged me with taking them. I said, I don't know of any key belonging to you; I pull'd out this key, and said, This I picked up, and delivered it to him; had he not sent me out with the beer, I would have given it him directly. Then he charged a constable with me, and sent me to the Counter.</p>
<p>Q. to Lee. Did she say she found the shilling under the bureau?</p>
<p>Lee. No, she did not; she was above an hour before she was sent away.</p>
<p>Q. to prosecutor. Did she readily say upon your charging her, she had found a key and a shilling?</p>
<p>Prosecutor. I told her what I had lost, and said I wanted to search her; I desired her to pull out what she had from her pocket, she pull'd out two sixpences, a half-penny, and three farthings. She utterly denied taking any thing.</p>
<p>Q. Did you charge her with taking a key and a shilling?</p>
<p>Prosecutor. I did; and she said she had nothing in her pocket but her own key and her own money.</p>

<p>Q. When was this?</p>
<p>Wootton. This was on Thursday; but I can't tell the day of the month.</p>
<p>Q. Was it before or after Christmas?</p>
<p>Wootton. It was after Christmas I went: it was the day before Mrs Sharp was sent to Newgate; she said she was in New-prison about something concerning notes; and she did not know what she was taken up for at first. She had been before Justice Fielding; she desired I would go to Mr. Marjoram, and give her love to him, and desire he would go to her.</p>
<p>Q. Was there any other message sent by you?</p>
<p>Wootton. She was vastly frighted, and did not know what she was taken up for.</p>
<p>Q. Did you go to Mr Marjoram?</p>
<p>Wootton. I did, and delivered that message to him.</p>
<p>Q. Was there any more conversation past between the prisoner Sharp and you, than what you have given an account of?</p>
<p>Wootton. No, there were not.</p>
<p>Q. Was not there any conversation about burning at all?</p>
<p>Wootton. No.</p>
<p>Q. Did she say she wanted to see Mr Marjoram about a note?</p>
<p>Wootton. She did.</p>
<p>Cross Examination.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know any thing at all of Mrs Sharp's receiving this note of Cleaver ?</p>
<p>Wootton. No, I never saw him in my life, 'till I saw him in custody.</p>
<p>Q. to Marjoram. What did this evidence say to you when she came?</p>
<p>Marjoram. The message that I understood by her, was, that she had got the money to give me if I would give her the note again, and she would burn it.</p>
<p>Q. to Wootton. Do you not recollect this conversation?</p>
<p>Wootton. I never said these words, nor had a half-penny of money about me.</p>
<p>Q. to Marjoram. Did you understand her to have the money to deliver to you, or you to go and have it of Mrs Sharp?</p>
<p>Marjoram. I understood it, that the witness
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175901170025"/> had got the money to deliver to me upon my delivering her the note.</p>
<p>Q. Was there any such message delivered by this woman, tending to your delivering up a note ?</p>
<p>Marjoram. Yes, there was.</p>
<p>Q. Was this evidence Wootton examined before Mr Fielding?</p>
<p>Marjoram. She swore that before Mr Fielding, with this variation; that Mrs Sharp would give me the money, if I would deliver up the note.</p>
<p>Cleaver's defence. I have nothing more to say, than that I gave the note to this woman, (meaning the prisoner Sharp) and I never had a farthing of the money.</p>
<p>Sharp's defence. He brought me the note, I can't tell the day, I believe it was the 18th or 19th; he said, Mrs Sharp, can you change me this note? I said no, I did not think I had money enough; I went and look'd, and found 17 l. 18 s. then I said I had no more, except he would take halfpence: he said they were luggage; I went to one Mrs Malin's, she said it was not in her power to change it; then I went with it to Mr Needham's, he could not change it; then I went to my Wine-Merchant; Cleaver said in Mrs Malin's house, while I came back to give him the two guineas: and when I came there with the money, he was gone; I saw him the next morning and said, Are not you gone home? he said no, nor he would not go home any more; for he had been in company in the Old-Bailey, and lost most of his money at cards: he told me his business in London was to buy sugar and plumbs for his father.</p>

<p>Sharp. Cleaver brings this gentleman, and said, Mrs Sharp, your daughter is very bad; this is an acquaintance of mine, let him go and see her, he said don't fear the money, I'll pay you. The gentleman came down again and talk'd, and said, I understand you let out a little money, what interest do you take? I sometimes get neither interest nor principal. He said, If you'll let Cleaver have twenty or thirty pounds, I'll be bound for him, to go to buy horses; there is a gentlewoman of my acquaintance that takes but three per cent. and she has made me a present of a goose.</p>
<p>Q. to Corney. Do you remember this conversation?</p>
