I turned round and saw the man that took it out give it to the prisoner at the bar. The prisoner was stooping, and the other delivered it to him betwixt his legs. (The prisoner seemed to be shamming buckling up his shoe.) I immediately laid hold of the prisoner, and charged him with my handkerchief, He denied it with a great deal of confusion. I said, he had got it under his coat on the right-hand side. I was going to take it, and saw him drop it behind him. I was stooping to take it up; he struck me, and endeavoured to make his escape. I threw him

There had been an account laid before the justice of divers robberies in and about Pancrass-fields; we divided into three parties; we set out I believe between eight and nine, from the sign of the boot in the Foundling-fields; it was a very fine moon-shining night. I could distinguish a person at the distance of one hundred yards, and could swear to a person's face at the distance of ten yards, or more. The party that I was of, which was about eight of us, went to the sign of the George, in the road leading to Highgate, just by the turnpike; then it was between nine and ten o'clock; we heard the cries of a woman very violent.</p>
<p>Halm. We were attacked in the field near that place.</p>
<p>Q. to S. West. Did you cry out?</p>
<p>S. West. I did.</p>
<p>Clay. The officers and men made the best haste they could to the place, some of them were there before me. When I came there, I saw Mr. Sykes lying on the ground, and b lood all about his head; there were some women. I said, have you been robbed? they said, they had, of their watches and money, several voices made the answer. The officers immediately pursued; some of the swiftest of foot. I desired some of the constables to take the gentleman that was wounded and the women to the Adam and Eve. I then followed the pursuers: When I came up, they had taken Whem, and were pulling him out of a ditch at full length on the ground. The officers said, there was another man in the ditch; I drew my hanger, and one of the officers said to me, you shall not go into the ditch; he took the hanger out of my hand and jumped in, and soon brought out Collins. I asked them several questions, but
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176209170005"/> could get no proper answers. I only got some had language from Whem. The next day I was with them before the Justice; there Collins wanted to be admitted an evidence. Whem said very little; we had intelligence of the other person, but we could not meet with him. After we had taken the prisoners out of the ditch, and hand-cussed and pinioned them together, I asked for a candle and lanthorn: there were two brought; the officers got into the ditch and found a gold watch, which I imagine had been in the hand of Whem, he being wounded on the right hand and right eye; there was then, and is now, blood upon the case of the watch. I suppose he was wounded by Mr. Sykes [The watch produced, the jury inspect it, and Mr. Sykes swore to it as his property which he lost that night]. There was a great deal of mud and water in the ditch; they were up to their middles in it; we found also this hat, [Producing one very bloody.] it was lying on the grass near the ditch, deposed to by Mr. Sykes.</p>
<p>Clay. Here is a sword also which was found in the ditch. The scabbard and belt were found in three separate places. [Producing the sword.]</p>
<p>S. West. Collins owned that sword before Justice Welch.</p>
<p>Clay. Here is a small key which one of the constables delivered to me, [Producing it,] deposed to by S. West, as the same key she was robbed of that night.</p>

I am constable: I was with Mr. Clay at the George in Pancrass-wash; I heard the cry of a woman, or women; I immediately pursued. When I came to the upper end of a field leading to Kentish-town (there was a brother officer ran with me) we came with Mrs. West; she said, gentlemen, we have been robbed by three fellows, and there they go. At that time I computed them to be about fourscore yards from us; I discerned them very distinctly, going all three abreast, it being a very light night. We pursued them about half way down the second field with all the speed we could. I halloo'd to my brother officers in order for them to follow. When the men found they were pursued, they ran, and turned out about the middle of the second field. The person with me could not keep up, and I thought proper to halt a little; still I had them in my fight. When the other officers came up, I saw the three men run by the side of a hedge; there we lost sight of them. When we came up to the place, we found they had jumped into a ditch. I was the first person that saw Whem in the ditch. It could not exceed five or six minutes before we took them both out; I was by at the time.</p>

As we were standing at the door of the George ale-house, I heard a great outcry of a woman,; I pursued with the rest of the officers. I missed my way, and went a little about, but met them. There I saw Mr. Halm, Mr. Sykes, Mr. West, and another woman. I saw three men running.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see any body point to them?</p>
<p>Halfpenny. I was in such a hurry. I cannot say I observed it, if they did. The gentlemen said, they had been robbed, and the men were just gone on; Mr. Sykes's face was all over bloody. As I passed, I heard them say it was by three soldiers, and I imagined they must be the men that robbed them. I ran as fast as I could, and never staid to hear any more, but kept my eye stedfast upon the men, and kept hallooing. At that time I saw none so near them as myself; I saw them drop into the ditch; I kept my eye upon the place, and went up, and was by when the two prisoners were taken out of the ditch. I saw the watch also taken out; the ditch was almost covered with bushes and brambles. The sword was delivered to me by an officer out of the ditch, drawn, and I delivered it to Mr. Clay. I was at both their examinations; I understood that Collins wanted to be admitted an evidence.</p>

I have been robbed by three soldiers; this was in a field beyond Pancrass church; we pursued. The people said, when we came to them, if we went a little farther, we should soon overtake them. I had not ran above fifty yards, before I came to have fight of all three of them: One of them made off on the right hand side, and two of them concealed themselves in a ditch. I took Collins out of the ditch, and found this watch, here produced, on his right-hand side; he was fitting as deep as the waistband of his breeches in water; the other prisoner was taken out before him: After I brought him out and went in again, I found the hanger drawn, and likewise the sheath and belt, all separate; this last was found lying in the field by the side of the bank. Collins before the justice would sain have turned evidence, but the justice would not admit him.</p>
<p>Q. How near were the prisoners to each other when in the ditch?</p>
<p>Spregue. They were about eight or nine yards distant. The sword was found near where Collins lay.</p>

<p>Q. Did you hear this expression, We have been robbed, and there they go?</p>
<p>Gay. Yes, I did; I am sure one of them said so. I looked for them, and saw three soldiers; we never lost fight of them, till they got to the thick part of
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176209170006"/> the boushes, where they went under them into the ditch; I saw the two prisoners at the bar taken out. Whem owned this oaken stick afterwards, [That is here produced,] this stick was taken out by the side of the ditch (it was a large oaken plant, better than a yard long).</p>
<p>Collins's Defence.</p>
<p>I know nothing at all of it. To be sure I was in the ditch; we had been both of us out, and coming along, we lost our road, and coming over the ditch we dropped in; we heard a cry from a parcel of people, and so we lay there, being in liquor.</p>
<p>Whem's Defence.</p>
<p>I know nothing at all of the matter indeed: We have no occasion for any witnesses. There are so many prosecutors about, there are enough to hang us if possible. If we were to tell your lordship the truth, I know nothing how that would go; I should be sorry to lose my life. Your lordship hears how it goes against us; I am as innocent as the child born but yesterday. The woman says enough against me; what can I do then, you know? I have sent for none of my officers, and our people are upon guard to-day; so I have nobody here to give me a character as to my behaviour and honesty.</p>

I came home and told her, I had been prevented inquiring her character, by hearing of another person; but I would treat her with a dish of tea.

I went and secured the prisoner; and then went to his wife without a warrant, and asked her for the other candlestick; and she gave me the key; and I took this other candlestick out of a box in their apartment.</p>
<p>Parker. Mr. Wetham wrote me word, they were lost out of the pocket of a post-chaise, and begged of me to advertize them; which I did; upon which Mr. Pell stopt the man, and found me.</p>
<p>Pell. When I was carrying the prisoner to the round house, he told me, he found them in a postchaise; and if I looked in the advertiser, I should find he found them in a post-chaise; and said, he had drove Mr. Wetham in a post-chaise, from the Red-Lion at Barnet, to the Swan at Wellwyn in Hertfordshire.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>There were two post-chaises went from Barnet. I drove the gentleman's chaise: The next day I went to sweep the chaises out, and found a pair of candlesticks, but they were in the other chaise, not that which I drove. I thought as I found them, I might do as I thought proper with them. I found them as honestly as any man in England.</p>

<p>Q. Give your reason for your belief:</p>
<p>E. Laker. I really think he was not in his senses. He had snapt a pistol at me in the kitchen before, but it did not go off; I do not believe he did it maliciously; he had never threatened me; and I have reason to think he looked upon me as his greatest good. I look upon him not to have been in his senses a great while before that, and have often mentioned it to his sister. He has said, he would make away with himself; and has taken a knife and cut across his own wrist; I have seen him do it: he at another time took laudanum.</p>

She is a person, that he, when in his right mind, is far from having any aversion to; we all of us thought, by his behaviour, he was not in his senses, and used to speak of it to each other; and he has been in a mad-house ever since.

<p>Q. What were his words, as near as you can recollect?</p>
<p>Want. He said, I myself pressed it often, and they were always averse to it; I think he added, he pressed it more than he had ever done in any case before, and they were always averse to it; I am confident this passed at the trial; he said, he even said more than as an apothecary he thought he ought to have done; but when he found them so averse to it, he desisted. He was asked, if they desired it, and he dissuaded them from it? He said, no; he never dissuaded them from it. In the course of the evidence, when they came to that part of it, which was on the Thursday before he died, when Dr. Lucas was sent for, he then said, when he saw him, he was so much altered, he then insisted upon a physician, and Dr. Lucas was sent for. Dr. Lucas was sent for that day, and his evidence struck me, so I well remember it. He was asked, whether upon opening the body at Long-ford, he did not say to young Mr. Howard, son to Mr.

He was asked by Serjeant Davy, whether Dr. Lucas did tell him so? He answered, - He did not recollect - He could not say - He did not believe - At last the serjeant asked him, Did Dr. Lucas tell you so? He said, No. Then the serjeant said, If he never did, you can certainly say so. Then he said, he was sure he never did.</p>
<p>Cross Examination.</p>
<p>Q. How long have you been acquainted with the prosecutrix?</p>
<p>Want. I knew nothing of any of them, before I became employed for her.</p>
<p>Q. Did you take any of this evidence in writing?</p>
<p>Want. I took only two questions in writing; I did not know that I had took any, but upon looking over an old brief, I found I had taken one question; it was asked Mr. Tyrrell, whether it had not been requested to send for a physician; his answer was, never. And I took the question about calling to young Howard to come and look at the inflammation; I found I had taken those two on the back of the brief.</p>
<p>Q. Then I may freely say, you had forgot you had taken it?</p>
<p>Want. You may say so.</p>
<p>Q. Can you be positive to every word that you have sworn now?</p>
<p>Want. I'll tell you why I can: I examined all the witnesses myself, separately and apart, in order to prepare for that trial; one part of the defence which we strongly insisted upon was, the frequent and repeated application of Mrs. Sibson to have a physican, and his constant refusal. The other two questions about the inflammation were stated particularl y in the brief, and asked from the brief. And as the last question about Mr. Fielding, he was committed upon that.</p>
<p>Q. What was the first question concerning having a physician?</p>
<p>Want. It was, whether they did not desire a physician. He said, No, never.</p>
<p>Q. Was there no question, nor no answer, passed between that question and answer?</p>
<p>Want. No; his answer would have been inconsistent, had that been the case; he repeated it in the course of his evidence numbers of times, that he had frequently pressed it, and he always found them remarkably averse.</p>
<p>Q. Did he at first admit he had said, You young rogue, &c.?</p>
<p>Want. He answered that immediately, and denied it.</p>
<p>Q. With regard to Dr. Lucas, you say he was asked that question many times?</p>

<p>Q. I do desire to know, whether at any time he did not say he could not recollect that at Justice Fielding's?</p>
<p>Want. He never hesitated about that; I remember particularly he said, No, Dr. Lucas never did tell him so. Then Serjeant Davy said, Can you have a doubt whether you said so, or no? There were two witnesses appeared, that said, he did say so at Justice Fielding's.</p>

<p>Q. Do you remember Mr. Tyrrell being a witness against you?</p>
<p>J. Sibson. I do.</p>
<p>Q. When did your husband die?</p>
<p>J. Sibson. My husband had been in a long state of lingering illness before he died; he died on the 26th of April, on a Monday.</p>
<p>Q. When was Mr. Tyrrell called in as an apothecary?</p>
<p>J. Sibson. I cannot recollect the day: My husband went to Windsor to him on horseback; and when he came back, he came in a chaise. He had been blooded, and came home with some medicines with him; the next day he visited my husband.</p>
<p>Q. How long before your husband died?</p>
<p>J. Sibson. It was three weeks, or upwards, before he died.</p>
<p>Q. What did he say was the matter with your husband?</p>
<p>J. Sibson. I had not much talk with Mr. Tyrrell about his illness the first day; Mr. Tyrrell told me he had a violent fever; and my husband told me he had told Mr. Tyrrell he had a fever 14 or 15 days before. After he came from visiting my husband, I took him into the parlour, and asked him, whether there was any danger; and I begged, for God's sake, if there was, he would let me know, because I might have assistance in time?</p>
<p>Q. What was his answer?</p>
<p>J. Sibson. He said at that time, Madam, I have attended him but a very little time; don't you think his fever is greatly abated? I said, Yes. Don't you think his cough is greatly abated? I said, Yes. He said, Madam, can you expect him to mend all at once? I have not attended him but two or three days. I often asked him if there was any danger, that I might send for a physician: He always said, there was no occasion.</p>
<p>Q. When did you first ask him for a physician?</p>
<p>J. Sibson. I asked him several times: When he came again, I asked him. He said, Why, Madam, he is very low-spirited, and you indulge him too much; if he would but eat and drink, and I would but talk and laugh to him, instead of crying by him, he would be a great deal better.</p>
<p>Q. When did you first mention to him to have a physician?</p>
<p>J. Sibson. I often begged he would let me know in time: He always told me there was no danger, none in the world.</p>
<p>Q. What were the words you made use of?</p>
<p>J. Sibson. I begged he would let me know, that I might have assistance; he knew my meaning.</p>
<p>Q. Did he ever propose it to you?</p>
<p>J. Sibson. No, never to me, nor to any-body in my hearing.</p>
<p>Q. Did you mention the word physician?</p>
<p>J. Sibson. No; but Mr. Tyrrell understood it, or he would not have talked and argued with me in that manner as he did. His answers were, There was no danger; and that if he would but eat and drink, and be merry, he would grow better: And on the Monday before he died, he thought him so much better, that he said he should not come any more, but begged to see him at Windsor before the Thursday following; and if he did not, he should imagine he was worse, and he would come and see him. When I pressed it so much, he said, Madam, if you chuse it, for your own satisfaction, you may have one; but I don't think there is any danger, or necessity for it.</p>
<p>Q. Whether Mr. Tyrrell, at any time in all your husband's illness before his death, ever advised the calling in of a physician?</p>
<p>J. Sibson. No, never; only he said, if I chose to have one for my own satisfaction, I might.</p>
<p>Q. Did your husband go to Windsor before that Thursday he mentioned?</p>
<p>J. Sibson. No; he was not able to go. There was a gentleman came from Waltham the 22d of April, the Thursday before he died, to see him at Longford; he was in bed very ill. The gentleman was going to London that night and could not stay; Mr. Tyrrell had always advised him to ride out in the post-chaise. My husband said to the gentleman, As it will be a long walk for you, and I have been advised to take a ride every day in the chaise, I'll
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176209170013"/> take you in the chaise, and carry you to Hounslow. I would have persuaded him not to go, he being very bad in bed; but he was very obstinate, and he was very fond of Mr. Tyrrell's advice, and he would go; and he, I, and the gentleman, went in the chaise together; and, instead of going as far as Hounslow, we went to Smallbury Green. We expected my husband's brother that afternoon from Windfor: I left word, unknown to my husband (for he would never consent to have a physician, being so advised by Mr. Tyrrell) with my mother, as I expected his brother, that, as soon as he came, he would go back to Windfor, and call a physician.</p>
<p>Q. What time was it when you returned?</p>
<p>J. Sibson. I can't say; to the best of my remembrance it was about the dusk of the evening; when we came home, I found Mr. Tyrrell there.</p>
<p>Q. Had Mr. Tyrrell ever visited him from the Monday till then?</p>
<p>J. Sibson. No, he had not: I did not know any physician at Windsor; I found my brother, who was there also, had consulted him concerning one.</p>
<p>Q. When was Dr. Lucas called in?</p>
<p>J. Sibson. My mamma told me she had, according to my direction, desired my brother to go for a physician; and in a little time my brother returned, and said, Dr. Lucas was gone out, and he would be there on the Friday. He afterwards took me aside, and told me Dr. Lucas was not gone out, but was at home: That he had asked him about Mr. Sibson, and he told him he was gone out in a post-chaise: That the doctor said, I do not think there is any necessity for me to come to-night, as he is able to go out in a post-chaise; but I'll go to-morrow, then I can sit a little while with him, and shall be more able to know his case. He came the next morning; my husband then appeared to be excessively bad, as bad as any-body could be. Dr. Lucas did not like to tell me much, but shook his head, and did not give me much hopes; I found he said more to my mamma. I can't say I was satisfied with having one physician: There was a gentleman came over from America in a deep consumption; he had had Dr. Fothergill, and was a great deal better. I often desired my husband to have him; my husband said, What signifies having him, for I will not take any thing?</p>
<p>Q. Did you send for Dr. Fothergill?</p>
<p>J. Sibson. I did. I sent my husband's brother for him to London: He returned, and told me the doctor could not attend, it was so far, or he was not well, I know not which, but recommended Dr. Hayes of Windsor. Upon that I sent for Dr. Hayes that same night, though it was very late. I begged my brother to go away to Windsor for him, and to bring Dr. Lucas along with him: They both came on the Saturday morning (my husband died the Monday following, about a quarter after two).</p>
<p>Q. When was it you first heard yourself charged with the murder of your husband?</p>
<p>J. Sibson. As soon as ever I came home from London, on the Tuesday evening, about 6 or 7 o'clock.</p>
<p>Q. On what account did you go to London?</p>
<p>J. Sibson. My husband had made me executrix to his will; and I had a particular occasion to go to London to prove it; I went that very evening; I apprehended some obstruction, that is, a caveat to be thrown in; but I did not prove it till the next morning. I had not been five minutes in the house before they came down, and told me they suspected my husband was poisoned.</p>
<p>Q. Who told you so?</p>
<p>J. Sibson. I don't know whether it was Mr. Sibson the brother, or Mr. Tyrrell; they said they had a suspicion the body was poisoned, and they would have it opened; they did not tell me of it at first, but only desired me to have the body opened. They asked me whether I would have the body opened? without expressing any suspicion why. The answer I made them was this; Mr. Bareblock and my mother said, they thought it would be cruel for me to have it opened (this was before my husband's death). I refused it.</p>
<p>Q. On what account did they advise you not to have your husband's body opened?</p>
<p>J. Sibson. In my husband's life-time there was a talk between us, that whoever died first, my husband or I, the body should be opened, and the heart taken out, to be kept. Mr. Bareblock objected to it, and said, it would be cruel. It was upon that I refused it, and said, Mr. Bareblock and my mother had dissuaded me from it. Then the brother said, Here is a suspicion of poison: I am his brother, and you are his wife, and I insist upon having him opened.</p>
<p>Q. Was Mr. Tyrrell there?</p>
<p>J. Sibson. I do not know whether Mr. Tyrrell was not walked out into the garden; he was backwards and forwards all the time.</p>
<p>Q. What was done then, when your brother-in-law insisted upon it?</p>
<p>J. Sibson. It really startled me for some minutes; I knew not how to give him an answer; I said, Well, if you suspect any thing of that kind, I as much insist upon his being opened as you.</p>
<p>Q. Was he opened?</p>
<p>J. Sibson. He was opened on the Friday.</p>
<p>Q. How came the body not to be opened before the Friday?</p>
<p>J. Sibson. Because we wanted the physicians that attended him, to attend: After the Jury had sat, was cleared; they sat Friday and Saturday.</p>
<p>Q. Had you been taken up before that?</p>
<p>J. Sibson. No, only the constables put in the house to watch me; then one of the jurymen came and took the constables out of the house. After that, word was sent down, that Sir

<p>Q. Are you sure he said so?</p>
<p>J. Sibson. I am; that was the only thing that struck me there. Mr. Fielding had some doubt at that time about committing me; and I was sent in and out, and I could not tell what he would do with me. A few minutes after that, he ordered me out, and I was out I believe half an hour; after that I was committed for murder.</p>
<p>Q. Was you committed upon that?</p>
<p>J. Sibson. I do not know that I was committed upon that; I was sent to New Prison, and then brought to be re-examined on the Thursday.</p>
<p>Q. Did Mr. Tyrrell attend at the re-examination?</p>
<p>J. Sibson. He did; but whether at the first or second examination, I can't tell.</p>

<p>Q. Do you remember your son in-law Mr. Sibson and daughter coming over to England?</p>
<p>M. Martin. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. How did you look upon your son-in-law then for health?</p>
<p>M. Martin. I thought him but in a very indifferent state of health; he had a cold and a cough, which they told me was occasioned by the sea.</p>
<p>Q. Do you remember his coming to live at Longford?</p>
<p>M. Martin. I do.</p>
<p>Q. Do you remember Mr. Tyrrell's coming to him at Longford?</p>
<p>M. Martin. I do.</p>
<p>Q. How long was Mr. Tyrrell at Longford before Mr. Sibson died?</p>
<p>M. Martin. Mr. Sibson came first to my house on the 6th of April, and on the 8th he went to Windsor; and the next day Mr. Tyrrell came to my house; he attended him as an apothecary; that was the first time he attended him at Longford.</p>
<p>Q. Did Mr. Sibson grow better or worse as to health?</p>
<p>M. Martin. Mr. Tyrrell thought him better after he attended him a little while; but I can't say I thought so: I was very ill at that time myself; I had occasion to have Mr. Tyrrell in my room; I was ill in bed; and, after I had told him my own case, I asked him how Mr. Sibson did? He said, thought he was better.</p>
<p>Q. What day was this?</p>
<p>M. Martin. I really can't say. I then thought Mr. Sibson was very ill; I said to him, Mr. Tyrrell, pray what do you think of Mr. Sibson? (this was two or three days after he first came.) I said, I think Mr. Sibson is in a deep consumption; and, for my part, I think it necessary he should have a physician, for I think he will not live; then I gave him my reason. I said my husband was in the same way, and died in about a fortnight. He gave me this answer: The family were consumptive, and that his own brother was consumptive, and was called the walking ghost of Windsor for four years. He then gave me another proof in regard to a man that lived at Chelsea; this was to dissuade me from a physician.</p>
<p>Q. I will not go through all Mr. Tyrrell's arguments. I ask you whether you and your daughter recommended it to Mr. Tyrrell to send for a physician?</p>
<p>M. Martin. I recommended it at that time; and never did after, till the Thursday before Mr. Sibson died.</p>
<p>Q. What were his answers?</p>
<p>M. Martin. His answers were, We might have one, if we chose it, for our own satisfaction; but there was no occasion for one.</p>
<p>Q. Do you remember your daughter leaving word with you, when she and Mr. Sibson went to Hounslow, for you to send for a physician?</p>
<p>M. Martin. I do: My daughter left word with me on the Thursday to have a physician.</p>
<p>Q. Was you ever present at any time when your daughter asked Mr. Tyrrell to have assistance?</p>
<p>M. Martin. No, I was not, for I was very ill all the time.</p>
<p>Q. Whether Mr. Tyrrell at any time recommended it to your daughter in your presence, or to you, the sending for a physician, or that you or your daughter opposed it?</p>
<p>M. Martin. No, never.</p>
<p>Q. First of all, to yourself: Whether he proposed sending for a physician, and you opposed it?</p>
<p>M. Martin. No, he never proposed it to me.</p>
<p>Q. Nor to your daughter, and she opposed it?</p>
<p>M. Martin. No, not to my knowledge. My daughter and I consulted together, before she went out on the Thursday, to send for a physician, and, as soon as the brother came, I was to send him for one; which I did; so that a physician was sent for by my order: But I should tell you, that Mr. Tyrrell came to Longford that day before the brother, and I told Mr. Tyrrell he must stay till Mr. Sibson came home, for he was worse. The brother came presently afterwards; Mr. Tyrrell was in the garden; the brother went to him: I sent the maid out to fetch Mr. Sibson to me; he came into the kitchen to me: I said to him, Mr. Sibson, my daughter has left orders that you should go directly for a physician. He asked me which he should go for, as there were two?
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176209170015"/> I said I did not know either, so he should go for which he thought best. He asked me if he should consult Mr. Tyrrell. I said he might do as he pleased: He went to Mr. Tyrrell, and Tyrrell gave orders for Dr. Lucas; I was present in the parlour, and heard it. I did not go immediately in with the brother; but I was there when that was agreed upon, and reached the pen and ink for Mr. Tyrrell to write the note.</p>
<p>Q. What was the consultation about?</p>
<p>M. Martin. It was about which physician to go for: He wrote the note to Dr. Lucas, and Dr. Lucas came on the Friday morning.</p>
<p>Q. Had Mr. Tyrrell on that Thursday seen Mr. Sibson between that and the Monday?</p>
<p>M. Martin. No, Dr. Lucas was sent for almost two hours before Mr. Sibson returned from Hounslow.</p>
<p>Q. What said Dr. Lucas to Mr. Sibson's case, when he did come?</p>
<p>M. Martin. He pronounced it a very desperate case?</p>

<p>Q. Did you ever hear your young mistress desire Mr. Tyrrell to call in a physician?</p>
<p>A. Wright. I heard Mrs. Sibson, the Monday before he died, which was the 19th of April. She followed Mr. Tyrrell to the door, and asked how Mr. Sibson did: He said, Madam, I have been talking to him; he is very low spirited, and like vapoured; and if he would but have better spirits, and eat and drink, and take exercise, he would be better. He said, he had been advising him to come to Windsor, and hoped he should see him there before Thursday; if not, he would come over again. Mrs. Sibson said, Sir, if my husband is dangerous, I beg you will not flatter me, that I may have a physician, or assistance, I am not certain which word she used.</p>
<p>Q. What did you understand it to mean?</p>
<p>A. Wright. I understood it to mean a physician.</p>
<p>Q. What answer did he give to that?</p>
<p>A. Wright. He said, if he would eat and drink, and take exercise, he would be better; he did not think there was occasion for any farther advice, or a physician, or assistance, which of these three expressions it was, I cannot say, it was one of them; this was the Monday before he died.</p>
<p>Q. What particular happened on the Thursday?</p>
<p>A. Wright. On the Thursday Mr. and Mrs. Sibson went out towards Hounslow with another gentleman. Mr. Sibson was very ill; Mrs. Sibson thought of having a physician; she grew very uneasy, because he was so very ill.</p>
<p>Q. Had Mr. Tyrrell been there then?</p>
<p>A. Wright. No, he had not.</p>
<p>Q. Do you remember any word left?</p>
<p>A. Wright. Mrs. Sibson left word, that if the deceased's brother came from Windsor, to return again for a physician.</p>

<p>A. Wright. She left it with Mrs. Martin, my mistress.</p>
<p>Q. Did Mr. Sibson the brother come?</p>

<p>Dr. Lucas.</p>
<p>Q. Whether you ever in your life time told Mr. Tyrrell, that you had no doubt but that the deceased Mr. Sibson died of poison, or that it was your opinion that this man died of poison?</p>
<p>Dr. Lucas. I never told him so, nor thought nor suspected it.</p>
<p>Counsel for Prosecution. We rest it here.</p>
<p>For the Prisoner.</p>
<p>Jos. Sibson. On the 10th of April I was at Longford. I went down to visit my brother the deceased. I put up my horse at the Queen's Head: From thence I wrote a letter to my brother, at Mr. Mackoun's, that there was an acquaintance of my brother's wanted to see him. On sending that note, I received an answer to it, wrote by my brother, all but the direction, which was wrote by Mrs. Sibson; the contents were, that he was very bad, and consined to the house for six days, but desired I would immediately come, with the bearer of that note, there.</p>
<p>Q. Who brought the note?</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176209170017"/>Sibson. That was Mr. Mackoun's boy, I believe. I told him I would follow him as soon as I had dined. When I came there, Mrs. Sibson called for a pen and ink to write; she desired I would write for her; she said it was to write to Mr. Tyrrell for some things for my brother. I said, I had not been at Windsor for some years; I desired to go there to fetch them. Mrs. Martin said, As my horse might be tired in coming so far, I should be welcome to her horse. Upon coming to Windsor, I immediately went to my other brother that lives there, and quickly after I went to Mr. Tyrrell's</p>
<p>Q. How did you find your brother that is deceased?</p>
<p>Sibson. I was surprised at finding him so very bad. I told Mr. Tyrrell I came from Mrs. Martin's for the medicines. He said they would be ready soon. I asked him what he thought of my brother's illness, and if he thought him dangerous? He said, No, he did not think him dangerous. Said I, he appears very bad, and it greatly affects me. Said he, If you think him very bad, we have two very good physicians in Windsor, I should be glad to have the opinion of either of them; and recommended me to have the opinion of Mrs. Sibson or Mrs. Martin, or both of them. The next morning I took an opportunity to acquaint Mrs. Sibson, that I thought my brother was very bad, in a dangerous way, and I thought it would be expedient to call in a physician. I told her, Mr. Tyrrell had told me there were two very eminent physicians in Windsor, and that he would be very glad to consult either of them. She said, I don't think there is any occasion for it, your brother is much better than he was. Quickly after that, I received this letter from Mrs. Sibson. While I was at Windsor, I desired Mr. Tyrrell would come on the Sunday morning, before I left Longford: He promised me he would come. Some time late in the morning I saw Mr. Tyrrell coming on horseback: I went into the yard to meet him.</p>
<p>Q. What Sunday was this?</p>
<p>Sibson. This was Sunday the 11th of April; he immediately said to me, Did you recommend what I said concerning a physician, to Mrs. Martin or Mrs. Sibson? I told him I had mentioned it to Mrs. Sibson; but she neither did consent to it, or say she would not: She said, she saw no occasion for a physician, as my brother was much better than he had been. Mr. Tyrrell quickly went into the chamber where my brother lay; and, upon his asking him how he was, and some other questions, Mr. Tyrrell asked him if he had any objection to losing a little more blood? He said, No, Sir, if you think it expedient. Then, said he, I'll take a little more from you. There was a little bason, which Mr. Tyrrell took, and desired I would hold it which he was opening the orifice. Accordingly I did; after that, he said to me, I cannot think why Mrs. Martin and Mrs. Sibson should be of opinion that he is in a consumption; he said, here are strong museles, as strong as wire, and recommended me to feel his pulse; and said, Here is a strong pulse The letter Mrs. Sibson sent to me just after I got home, was dated Apr. 18, 1702. Longford.</p>
<p>"Dear Brother,</p>
<p>"Yours of the 14th of Apr. last Sunday, which</p>
<p>"brings the unwelcome news of the return of the</p>
<p>"disorder. [I am much subject to the gout, which I had wrote about in mine. - Her letter says,]</p>
<p>"As to Mr. Sibson, he is much better as can be expected</p>

<p>Counsel for Prosecution. Look at these two letters [ be takes them into his hand].</p>
<p>Sibson. These are both my hand-writing.</p>
<p>Q. Then the 10th of April was the first time you ever saw Mr. Tyrrell, was it not?</p>
<p>Sibson. It was.</p>
<p>Q. Then you can't answer to any thing that happened before or after that time, can you?</p>
<p>Sibson. I cannot.</p>
<p>Q. Was you present when application was made by Mrs. Sibson to her husband to have a physician?</p>
<p>Sibson. No, I don't remember that.</p>
<p>Q. Did you desire Mrs. Sibson to mention it to your brother?</p>
<p>Sibson. No; I recommended it to her, and likewise recommended these two gentlemen which Mr. Tyrrell recommended to me; they are both strangers to me.</p>
<p>Q. Upon your saying you thought him very bad, then it was Mr. Tyrrell said, if you thought him very bad, there were two good physicians at Windsor, he would be very glad to consult either of them; is this what you say?</p>
<p>Sibson. I asked him if it would not be expedient to have a physician? He said there were two very good ones at Windsor, and he should be very glad to consult either of them.</p>
<p>Q. Which mentioned a physician first, he or you?</p>
<p>Sibson. I did.</p>
<p>Counsel. Then Mr. Tyrrell observed to you, there was a very strong pulse, and strong muscles, even as strong as wire?</p>
<p>Sibson. He did.</p>

<p>D. Tyrrell I mean Mr. Tyrrell at the bar; he was going alone in the post-chaise, and I said I would go along with him if he choose it, for an airing: When we went in, Mr. Sibson and his wife were gone out a airing; there was nobody at home but Mrs. Martin: When my brother went in, she said, Doctor, here is a great alteration since you was here last Monday. My brother said, Then madam, we had better call in a physician.</p>
<p>Q. Was that before any body had mentioned it to him?</p>
<p>D. Tyrrell. It was. Mr. Sibson the barber, from Windsor, went over with us, but as he walked, he was left behind.</p>
<p>Q. What did Mrs. Martin say to that?</p>

<p>R. Sibson. I thought by some expressions which I heard in the family, that he did not die fairly.</p>
<p>Q. What were they?</p>
<p>R. Sibson. Mrs. Sibson said, if he died she would have him opened, and have his heart taken out, and she would take opium and die, and be buried along with him.</p>
<p>Q. Was it opium or poison?</p>
<p>R. Sibson. I believe they both were mentioned; and I heard the maid say, her mistres s had brought down as much poison, as would poison forty people.</p>

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176209170019"/>Q. Who was this mentioned before?</p>
<p>R. Sibson. She mentioned it before Mr. Bearblock and I, and several other people. Mr. Tyrrell has heard her say so, I dare say, once or twice, as well as I.</p>
<p>Q. Was you present when Mr. Tyrrell has heard her?</p>
<p>R. Sibson. I was; and from this, it struck in my mind that he was poisoned.</p>
<p>Q. Did you mention your thoughts to Mr. Tyrrell?</p>
<p>R. Sibson. I told Mr. Tyrrell I did think so.</p>

<p>R. Sibson. There were Mr. Bearblock, Mrs. Martin, Mrs. Sibson, and there might be more women.</p>
<p>Q. What was done with it?</p>
<p>R. Sibson. I took it away with me. I had it in my possession; and when I came home, I repeated this to Dr. Lucas; and he clapped his finger on the table, and said, You may as well spread this table, as to spread laudanum.</p>
<p>Q. When did you acquaint Dr. Lucas of it?</p>
<p>R. Sibson. It was on the sunday-night before he died. From this I thought it incumbent on me to go on with a prosecution.</p>
<p>Q. Did you, when you was at your brother's, ever hear Mrs. Sibson or Mrs. Martin propose a physician?</p>
<p>R. Sibson. I don't recollect that I ever did. My brother Joseph came from Baldock, and he was surprized to see him so bad: I went with my brother Joseph to Mr. Tyrrell, and left Mr. Tyrrell and he together upon that subject, that is, concerning a physician being called for.</p>
<p>Q. When was that?</p>
<p>R. Sibson. This was on the Saturday was se'nnight before he died, I believe it was then, but I will not be positive; I heard at that time Mr. Tyrrell advise a physician.</p>

<p>Q. Now will you undertake to say, That Mr. Tyrrell did not step forth, and say at once, he could clear up that difficulty, for Dr. Lucas was clear of opinion he died of poison?</p>

<p>Q. Did you hear, either in point of examination, or point of conversation this expression, it is a material one, That Mr. Tyrrell said there to any body, and to whom, That Dr. Lucas's opinion was, that the deceased was poisoned?</p>

<p>Q. Did you hear any talk about Dr. Lucas?</p>

<p>Marsden. I believe it was that evening she was committed for further examination.</p>
<p>Q. Do you remember any thing being said about Mr. Johnson?</p>
<p>Marsden. I do; I remember one thing being said about him; which I think was said to be at the same time this other thing was said. Mr. Tyrrell said, he believed he should be able to prove Mr. Johnson had not seen Dr. Lucas, though in that writing Mr. Johnson had said he had seen Dr. Lucas; that I think upon the trial here, was said to be at the same time of the other expression; and I was surprized to think I did not hear that expression.</p>
<p>Q. Whether there was any talk of what Dr. Lucas had said?</p>
<p>Marsden. Yes; Mr. Johnson sent a writing. I read it over to the justice; there was one circumstance mentioned; that was, Whether he knew Dr. Lucas's opinion? Mr. Tyrrell said, he believed he should be able to prove Dr. Lucas had not seen Mr. Johnson.</p>
<p>Q. Whether that was not in answer to a conversation touching something that Dr. Lucas should have said, and that Dr. Lucas had said something different from Mr. Johnson?</p>
<p>Marsden. It might.</p>
<p>Q. Whether Justice Fielding said, I should be very glad if some of the physicians were here: and Mr. Tyrrell should say, If Dr. Lucas was here, he would put it out of doubt; for he had told him, it was his opinion the man died of poison; take it whole together?</p>
<p>Marsden. The justice expressed he should be glad to have the doctor's opinion on it; and expressed an uneasiness how to act in it. There was no such declaration from Mr. Tyrrell; it was rather connected with that thing of Mr. Johnson; but it was not sworn I am positive.</p>
<p>Q. Was there no such conversation with Mr. Tyrrell?</p>
<p>Marsden. No, not in that manner.</p>
<p>Q. Was not there a letter from Mr. Johnson, with a remarkable postscript in it, directed to Sir

I did not see him again till one o'clock.</p>

<p>Q. What were the contents of that letter?</p>
<p>Cotton. It was dated, Harlow, Sunday morning. It began, Mr. Cotton, I find you have not left the money according to my order.</p>
<p>Q. What did you do upon this?</p>
<p>Cotton. In consequence of this I waited for J. Kello's coming to advise with me; he did not come: Then I returned home, and read the letter to the porter that brought it to me; I immediately took the cover from off the bank note. It was directed to

<p>Q. Did you tell him you had left the bank note at Sam's?</p>
<p>Cotton. I did; I shewed him the letter; he read it: He said, G - d! I thought Mr. Partridge would be angry at your not leaving it. We went then in to dinner; I left that letter then in his hands, and never saw it more. After dinner he was going out; he said, So, you have left the note at Sam's? I said, Yes, I have left it, and don't care what becomes
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176209170025"/> of it. He went away, and returned again to me at four.</p>
<p>Q. from Prisoner. Did any-body see you put the note into the letter, before you carried it to Sam's the last time?</p>
<p>Cotton. Yes, Mr. Bel saw me, and saw me seal it up.</p>
<p>Q. to Mercer. Look at this paper [he takes a paper into his hand].</p>
<p>Mercer. This is a forged draught. This I gave a bank-note of a thousand pounds upon.</p>
<p>Q. Look at this bank-note [he takes it into his hand.]</p>
<p>Mercer. This agrees in every respect to the note which I gave on the draught. I delivered it to one of our own clerks; and I saw Mr. Cotton, who has given his evidence, receive it of him; it was in our shop. Mr. Cotton came with the draught, and desired we would give him bank for it. I asked him how he came to be so late. He said, It was but just received from Mr. Partridge: He had a waser, with which he said he wanted to seal the bank note in a cover, and he did it at our counter.</p>
<p>Q. In paying this bank-note, is it set down against Mr. Partridge?</p>
<p>Mercer. No; by finding the draught was a forgery, we have taken the loss finally upon ourselves; if we had not discovered the forgery, we should have set down by the loss; Mr. Partridge is intirely discharged from it.</p>

<p>Q. How came you to have access there?</p>
<p>Kello. I desired Mr. Cotton to lend me some magazines; he told me they were in Mr. Partridge's counting-house. I desired him to let me go into the counting-house, in order to take the magazine. Being them in the counting-house, I took a draught from Mr. Partridge's file.</p>

<p>Kello. That I destroyed, I burnt it.</p>

<p>Q. Then on the 28th of August, the favourable opportunity being come, did you know Mr. Partridge was to go out of town that day?</p>

<p>Kello.

<p>Q. What time did you part with your brother?</p>
<p>Kello. May be, it was about 6 o'clock.</p>
<p>Q. How long might you stay before you saw Mr. Cotton?</p>
<p>Kello. I believe I might stay an hour and half before I saw him; I saw him when he came home.</p>
<p>Q. Was you here in court when Mr. Cotton gave his evidence?</p>
<p>Kello. No, I was not.</p>
<p>Q. When he came back the first time, what conversation had you with him?</p>
<p>Kello. No particular conversation; only he said he had brought it back.</p>
<p>Q. Why did he say he had not left it at the coffee-house?</p>
<p>Kello. He said he did not chuse to leave it, without seeing the person that was to come for it.</p>
<p>Q. Did he tell you he had left a note at the bar of Sam's coffee-house?</p>
<p>Kello. I think he said he had left a note for the person to call upon him.</p>
<p>Q. What o'clock was it when Mr. Cotton returned from Sam's coffee-house?</p>
<p>Kello. I can't recollect that.</p>
<p>Q. Did you ask Mr. Cotton, at that time, whether he had left the letter for Mr. Rous?</p>
<p>Kello. No, I did not; he first mentioned it to me: I went out after that to Seymour's coffee-house, by appointment, to meet my brother.</p>
<p>Q. Where is Seymour's coffee-house?</p>
<p>Kello. I think it is in Pope's-head Alley, by the 'Change.</p>
<p>Q. What was the agreement made between you and your brother, when you made that appointment to come to him to Seymour's coffee-house?</p>
<p>Kello. That was in consequence of the 'letter, to tell him what had happened; I went and acquainted him that Mr. Cotton had not left it.</p>
<p>Q. What was the next thing done by you?</p>
<p>Kello. My brother agreed then to hasten Mr. Cotton to the Antigallican coffee house: He wrote a note, and sent it to Mr. Cotton, to desire him to go to the Antigallican coffee-house, and leave it there.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see the note?</p>
<p>Kello. No, I never saw that.</p>
<p>Q. Was it a note, or a verbal message?</p>
<p>Kello. I believe it was a verbal message by a chairman: I know the intention was, to have sent a note; but whether he did, or not, I don't know.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see the chairman come?</p>
<p>Kello. I did not.</p>
<p>Q. When did you go next to Mr. Cotton's?</p>
<p>Kello. I believe I went almost directly from Seymour's coffee-house.</p>
<p>Q. Did you, before you went from the coffee-house, make an appointment where to meet your brother?</p>
<p>Kello. Yes, I was to meet my brother, after Mr. Cotton returned, at the Rose in Cheapside: I went to Mr. Cotton's, and Mr. Cotton did not come back till about twelve at night.</p>
<p>Q. When he came in, what conversation was between you?</p>
<p>Kello. He said he had not left the note, nor did he intend to leave it.</p>
<p>Q. Did you endeavour to prevail upon Mr. Cotton to leave it?</p>
<p>Kello. No, I did not; but Mr. Cotton told me he would write to Mr. Partridge, and he did that night. I went by mistake to Ashley's punch-house, instead of the Rose in Cheapside, while Mr. Cotton was writing the letter, and returned to Mr. Cotton before he had finished it, and went with him to the post-house; I lay with Mr. Cotton that night, and got up about six on the Sunday morning.</p>
<p>Q. What made you get up so early?</p>
<p>Kello. I intended to have gone a fishing?</p>
<p>Q. Did you tell Mr. Cotton that was your intention?</p>
<p>Kello. He knew that was my intention. I went and saw my brother at his lodgings about seven that morning; I told him what had happened the day before.</p>
