I missed it on the 28th of May in the morning, I knew nobody but the prisoner had been in the cellar since I had seen it, which was on the day before; so I enquired for him, and was told by a woman he had said he had found a great deal of money in a shoe in Moorfields.</p>
<p>Q. How came he into your cellar?</p>
<p>White. He has but very little sight, he came when I was very busy on the morning of the 28th for some salmon kits that I had sold him, he went down into the cellar, and I suppose by groaping about got my money.</p>
<p>Q. How far did your money lay from the salmon kits?</p>
<p>White. About three yards. I carried him before Justice Pell, there was the quantity and pieces of money found upon him as laid in the indictment. The Justice asked him if it was my money? he said, yes: he had a pair of silver buckles, the Justice asked him if he bought them

<p>White. I am very certain I did not.</p>

I sent for her, she came, and charged a constable with him; I saw Mr. Quintam search him, and take the buckles out of his shoes, and gold and silver out of his pocket; I heard him say he threw the bag away, and bought another.</p>
<p>Mr. Quintam. I am constable; I was sent for to Mrs. White, I went and found the prisoner at the Man in the Moon, I had use to know him before, but he was dress so well I could hardly know him at first sight; I searched him, I found the pieces of money upon him as laid in the indictment; I took him in a coach to go to the Justice, going along he confessed that the money was Mrs. White's property, and every word he told me, he told the Justice; he said he took the money out of the cellar, out of a shoe. The Justice said, have you got ever a watch? he said, no: - how came you by these buckles? - I bought them with Mrs. White's money: the Justice said, take them out; he said, no, blast me, I will not. Then the Justice ordered me to take them out, which I did. He said he took a black bag, and put it into the under salmon kit, and put three upon it, and carried it as far as Mr. Trueman's brew-house, then he looked to see what a prize he had got, he untied the bag, the first he saw was a crown piece, which rejoiced his heart, that there were thirty crown pieces, and all the rest gold; that he carried it to the George, in George-Yard, then he went and bought his cloaths, and turned it all into gold.</p>
<p>Q. to White. Was your money in a black bag?</p>
<p>White. It was not black, but it was made black by being in the cellar.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>I did not say such a word as the constable has mentioned, but I have nobody at all to say any thing for me but myself, I leave it to the mercy of the court.</p>

I saw the prisoner since at Justice Fielding's on the 7th of June, and I now believe he was one of them; the people that came in, one was a talk thin man pitted with the small pox, dressed in brown, they went away towards White-chapel-bars, I shut the door, and did not observe whether they joyned the two in mourning.</p>

I have known the prisoner some years, she has come often to our shop; on the 16th of March she came for 5 yards and a half of white 3-quarter'd mantua, in the name of Mrs. Minet, she said it was to make a white silk petticoat, she had it. Mrs. Minet is a married lady, and lives in St. Mary-Axe; the prisoner's mother, her sister, and she, are mantua makers; she always asked for a bill of parcels in Mrs. Minet's name, and had it with her. She came again on the 9th of April for 5 yards and a half more, to make another petticoat for Mrs. Minet, she had it.</p>
<p>Q. When did you first suspect this to be an imposition?</p>
<p>Stellings. When the pawnbroker sent to let me know she was stopped on the 2d of May, she had that day been and had 22 yards of garnet ground brocade, she went and pawned it near the Seven Dials; the pawnbroker's man came to our shop, to know whether she had the brocade of me or not; she came with him skimming into the shop dressed in one of the pieces she had in our shop, and to blind me she said it was her brother; (whispering very softly) I looked at him, and he at me, said she, can I have 2 yards more of this silk? I said, no; then, said she, don't carry the bill; here was the first alarm I had; she went away with the man. The man came back again, and said he thought, by what passed, she had not the goods fairly, and desired I would step up to his master, whom he said was a pawnbroker. I went, there was this garnet ground brocade, and she was dressed in this silk gown, the silk she had of me. (Producing a silk gown) Mrs. Minet was then out of town, but all the servants said she had no such order for either of the silks from her mistress.</p>

<p>Q. to prosecutor. Were any questions asked how Wright came by the pocket book?</p>
<p>Prosecutor. He began begging mercy, I don't know he made me any positive answer how he took it; the others all declared they knew nothing of it, and I think Wright himself said the same, that he himself took it. Sir Matthew committed two to the Compter, and him to Newgate.</p>

He got hold of me, and began to beat me about the face and head, I endeavoured to defend myself as well as I could; he got me on the ground in a gutter, and beat me as long as he thought proper, my head and face was all over bloody; then he took hold at the string of my watch, and pulled it out, and ran away, I followed and called thief and murder. There was a man lying on the grass about 50 or 60 yards distance, he got up and stared about him, his name is Ellis, I told him what had happened, he looked about and said he saw him; a farmer was riding about looking after his haymakers, he rode down and said he saw the man in a field. The poor man and I ran, some time we saw him, and some time not, we lost him, then we came again into the field where I was robbed, the grass not being cut down, we tracked him about a dozen yards in it, presently we found him lying on his belly in the ditch, the poor man jumped in and took him out; then the prisoner said, I'll give you your watch again; no, said I, you don't though. We took him to the Justice at Hamstead, who sent for a constable and he was secured.</p>

(They were quite strangers to me, I never was in London before.) I said, I did not want any man's money; then he said, come and drink; I went in with them, but do not know the house; they got the cards, and began to lay a guinea a time, they got me to put money down, I lost a shilling, after that another, and after that a 5 s. and 3 d. piece, so I would lay no more, then the others went away, and I was left with Gray, then we went out together, he would have me go and take share of a pot of beer, so he carried me to

I laid my head down to take a nap, Gray tapt me and said, what o'clock is it?

The two prisoners and prosecutor came into the house between 2 and 3 o'clock, I never saw either of them before, they called for a pint of twopenny, then a pen and ink, then for a pint of cold slip; there were three brewer's servants in the kitchen, as soon as they were gone, Colnett went to my husband and asked, if he would let them speak a word or two in private to Harris? Going through the passage, Harris asked them what their names were? Harris appeared to be in liquor. They came into the kitchen and sat down at the table, and called for a pen and ink again, then Colnett desired me to walk out of the kitchen, I said, that was my apartment, and I would not. Harris happened to drop asleep. I saw Gray take the watch out of Harris's hand and give it to Colnett, he put it under his apron, and went out with it. I called my husband and said, that young man's watch is gone, there is something going on I did not like. Harris dropt a shilling between his legs, and Gray took it up, and paid the reckoning with it; when my husband took the reckoning, Gray whispered him and said, I talked what did not concern me, and that Colnett was only gone for a little tea for the sailor. I said, Gray should not go till the young man had his watch again. A man, by overhearing me, went and found Colnett, and returned and said, he would be back in a quarter of an hour; Colnett came in about that distance of time and said, what do you keep the man in custody for? I said, till the young man has the watch, and now you are come, I insist upon your being charged. He used me very ill. Mr. Bird the constable was sent for, I insisted upon his taking them both away, but he would not for a great while, neither did he chuse to take charge of them. Colnett wanted Harris to pay him his charges while he had been gone with the watch, and said, he had pawned it for 1 l. 16 s. and threw that money on the table; this was after Colnett was charged; the young man wanted his
