He said, he did not steal all the things, he only took the waistcoat, and that Lally took the rest, and they had sold them to one Philips, in Rosemary-lane, for 30 s. and he had 10 s. of the money, and Lally kept the other 20. I examined Lally, they both of them owned the cloaths were the property of Wyatt. Lally owned he had 20 s. of the money, but said he brought away from Mr. Blackwood's only the coat.</p>

<p>Lally's Defence.</p>
<p>The owner of the cloaths gave us them out of Mr Blackwood's house, to make money on. We went and sold them for 30 s. We had not come a quarter of a mile from the house, before we were knocked down, and all the money taken from us, and when Wyatt came for the money, we went back with him to where we had sold the cloaths.</p>

<p>Q. What is Mr. Shanks?</p>
<p>Rickerby. He keeps a notary public office by 'Change-Alley. I gave him 2 guineas; then he directed me to Mr. Honychurch, by Cherry-Garden-Stairs, Rotherhithe, where I found it.</p>
<p>Q. Did you know any thing of the prisoner before?</p>
<p>Rickerby. The prisoner lodged in my house till the time he was taken up.</p>
<p>Q. Was the prisoner at home that night?</p>
<p>Rickerby. No, he was not.</p>
<p>Q. What is his employ?</p>
<p>Rickerby. I do not know any employ he is of. I took him up on the Wednesday following, and charged him with it; he owned it, and said it was necessity that made him take it.</p>
<p>Mr. Honychurch. I am a watchmaker, and live at Rotherhithe; the prisoner at the bar brought this watch to me, on the 20th of October last; he said he wanted to dispose of it (producing a silver watch; deposed to by prosecutor) I bought it of him for two guineas. I was sent for to Justice Fielding, there I heard the prisoner say, he hoped the prosecutor would forgive him, and look over it, as it was the first offence.</p>

On Friday morning, the 21st of October, between the hours of five and six, we were knocked up; we found part of the window-shutter had been boared through, and then cut away with a sharp instrument; there were taken out about four or five inches diameter from the pannel of the shutter, near the counter; and the glass of a little show-glass, which we put on the counter on nights, was broke; in which were the things mentioned in the indictment. That was within an inch of being level with the hole they had cut, at about 15 inches distance from the hole.</p>
<p>Q. What things did you lose?</p>
<p>Wait. We lost half a gross of silver tea-spoons tied up in three parcels; five silver snuff-boxes, one tortoiseshell snuff box, one chased silver lid for a snuff box not mounted, and one load-stone set in silver.

<p>Williams. He is no business, he goes upon the highway and the like, and that is what he was tried for.</p>
<p>Court. Begin and tell your story; what you have to say?</p>
<p>Williams. On Thursday, the 20th of October, he came to my house two or three times in Kent-street, and asked for me: I denied myself once, and got out into the garden; he came again and found me at home, and we got to drinking together.</p>
<p>Q. When was this?</p>
<p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176312070006"/>Williams. This may be two or three days before this robbery, he has drank with me at several houses in Kent-street.</p>
<p>Q. What was your conversation?</p>
<p>Williams. We talked we would go together a house-breaking.</p>
<p>Q. What house was this you had this conversation at?</p>
<p>Williams. We had been together all the day at the Red Cow, in Kent-street, and walking up and down to see what we could get at night, looking at goldsmiths shops, to see what hung in the windows; then we went into the Fore-street, Wapping, about 11 at night; we had been walking there before, and saw what hung in the windows, and had in the day mentioned going there.</p>
<p>Q. Which mentioned it?</p>
<p>Williams. I did to him. I had not seen the silver spoons; but I said to him there is a parcel of watches hung up in the windows; we drank at a house by the water-side, then we walked to and fro; we observed the window of this gentleman's house, we saw a light go up-stairs and down again; after 12 we began to work, and bored the shutters as full of holes as we could, with a gimlet.</p>
<p>Q. Which bored the holes?</p>
<p>Williams. I did most of them, he stood at the door to listen whether any body was coming out.</p>
<p>Q. What was you bred to?</p>
<p>Williams. My father was a shoemaker, but I never learned any trade. The prisoner and I had each a sharp knife, and I cut away as fast as I could, till we could get an arm in; he got mud out of the kennel to blacken it, that the watchmen might not see it. Then I took a handkerchief, and wrap'd it about my hand, and pushed in a pane of glass; then he put his arm in, and broke a show-glass, and took out some silver teaspoons tied up in parcels, and gave them to me, and I put them into my pocket; he took out three silver snuff-boxes, and a load-stone, and a little pair of scales and weights in a box; he might take out more, and put them in his pocket, unknown to me.</p>
<p>Q. How long might you be about this affair?</p>
<p>Williams. We might be better than two hours about it.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see no watchmen?</p>
<p>Williams. Yes, the watchmen and patroles and other people past by; but there is a back street, and as they were coming, we got out of the way, and then returned again. When we had got what we could, we went off, and sold all the things to

<p>Q. What time in the morning?</p>
<p>Williams. It might be before day-light; I sold them, and Stephenson staid at Darkhouse-lane the while.</p>
<p>Q. How came it that Stephenson did not go with you to Abraham's.</p>
<p>Williams. Abrahams is so knowing, he would not buy goods, if two men came together.</p>
<p>Q. Did Abrahams keep a shop?</p>
<p>Williams. Yes, he did, and sold cloaths.</p>
<p>Q. How old is he?</p>
<p>Williams. He is about 35 years old.</p>
<p>Q. Did you ever trade with him before?</p>
<p>Williams. He has had goods of me two or three times, which we got at other places. Stephenson said he wanted a couple of tea-spoons for his own use, and I gave him those two spoons out of my own hand, when we got into his own room. Two or three days after, he shewed me them, and said he had filed the mark out of them: I know he has got a file for that purpose: these are two which we had at the prosecutrix's house; the prisoner was taken out of the same house I was, with firearms and a long piece, which we took from a house we broke open in the county of Kent.</p>

We told him Williams had charged him: he said Williams could not hurt him, and that if he had been a thief, he should not have been so ragged as he was.</p>

<p>Williams said, in Clerkenwell-prison one night, that he never knew me in his life, no farther than seeing me in prison, when he was there himself 2 or three sessions ago, and wanted some prisoners to swear he was mad, for he did not know what he did. I was abroad in his majesty's service, and served him 13 years, pretty near 6 of them were abroad: coming home, I took up with a young woman, and lived with her: those spoons belong to her: I do not know any thing of them: I have seen her have them several times.

Mr. Owen said, I'll knock you down, if you don't go away; he had a stick in his hand; I laid hold of that, we both fell down; after that he followed me with the stick, attempting to hit me; we got to pulling one another about for 7 or 8 minutes, the other man calling murder at the same time. I said to the landlord, I would go and call a watchman; for they were breaking the windows.

He used sometimes to come to shave himself, and clean his shoes. He came last Monday was a week, about half an hour after seven in the morning; after he had brushed his shoes, I saw him take a shaving-cloth, and put it into his left side coat pocket, in the inside his coat; he was suspected before, so we had an eye upon him. I went for a constable, and he was taken into custody; after which I saw him drop the cloth by the side of a table. When he was in the coach going to Newgate, he said, he never wronged any body but my master, and that he was a fool for wronging of him, who had been so good a friend to him.</p>

<p>Mr. Allison. I have known the prisoner 2 years and about 6 weeks; he work'd with me a year and a fortnight, and behaved very well during that time.

<p>S. Rice. He did not; he kiss'd me when he laid hold of me.

I stood to listen which way the voice came, and saw the prisoner cross the way from the end of the Old Jury: he salter'd, and was almost down when he got cross (I believe his foot might take a stone): he felt down, and there I laid hold of him. He asked me what I stopt him for? Said I. you are in the hand of a constable, and I'll see what you are charged with. The prosecutrix came up, and charged him with taking her cloak from her. I said, go the way he came, and see for it. I believe six or seven people went down the Old Jury to look for it: nothing was found: he was searched, and nothing found upon him.

<p>Dodd. I had seen them in my shop that very day.</p>

<p>Dodd. There were about five hundred weight of them, I found three more of them in another place; there were about half a ton of them at first.</p>

<p>Dodd. There were about 50 of them on the shelf, the pile was full in the morning (that was 5 or 6) which were gone before I came home; that pile was on the shelf, very near to the outside of the window, the person need not come into the shop to take them; they might draw them from off the pile.</p>

<p>Dodd. The shelf is about three inches higher than the lower part of the window, where the sashes drop down.</p>

I saw two cheeses move from the shelf; I came from behind the counter (which is the opposite side the shop, my face was towards the shelf); there then was only they two on the pile; I ran out at the door, seeing them go out at the window, and followed the prisoner, who had got about 10 or 12 yards, and saw him put something under the flap of his coat. I went before him, and said, Friend, where are you going with them cheeses, and tapped him on the shoulder? He said, no where, only in a joke. I called him, and brought him into the shop, and took the two cheeses from under his arm. These are the same here produced; I am certain they are my master's property. I took him into the counting house, and sent for my master; then the prisoner said, Lord bless me, what have I done this for! a man put the cheeses into my hand as I was standing at the corner.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>On the 24th of last month, I was drinking at the Dolphin, in Honey-lane Market, till about 20 minutes after eight at night. I went home; a man that lodges in the house of Mr. Leven, said, James, I should be very much obliged to you, if you had come home sooner, and gone of an errand for me; said I, I'll go on an errand for you ten miles, if you want it, or for any body else; said he, carry these slides, belonging to a watch. to such a man in Holborn. I set out with them about 20 minutes after eight, and came opposite to Warwick lane; there I stopt to make water, and was buttoning up my breeches; coming out of the passage, a man said, be kind enough to lay hold of these two cheeses for a moment. Immediately I mist him; I had them not a minute in my hand before the man came and laid hold on me, and said, What are you doing with these cheeses? Said I, I am holding them for a man that is making water, or casing himself. I had been but five minutes out of our own house, before that man took me into his house: There were three more cheeses found in a house on the outside Newgate, and two others under Newgate. I never went out of our house till 25 minutes after eight o'clock.</p>
<p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176312070012"/>Mr. Dodd's brother went to another shop, and wanted the man to swear I was the man that left three cheeses there; the man said, he could not swear, whether I was or was not the man; there were two cheeses left under Newgate; he could not swear that I was the man that left them. My Lord would not hear any character of me; I had as good a character as any man in the world. I have been seven years to serve his Majesty, and am a freeman of the city of London; I am as innocent as a child unborn.</p>

<p>Q. What is he?</p>
<p>Leven. He is a barber. On Thursday se'nnight some time, I believe between eight and nine, the prisoner came in, much in liquor, and a man that works with me in the motion branch, desired he would take three slides up to a person in Leather-lane, Holborn. I saw him go out with them; the next morning I had a note from him, to tell me he was in the Counter, and that he had not carried the slides. He bares a very good character. as far as ever I heard; he hardly was ever out of my house after eight or nine o'clock.</p>
<p>Q. What is his employ at your house?</p>
<p>Leven. He sometimes works at wig-making, or mending in the garret.</p>

Accordingly, on Monday, the 7th of November, we sat up in the shop, secreted in two separate places, when all the rest of the family was retired to bed; about half an hour after 11 o'clock, we saw the prisoner come into the shop, and heard her go to the desk. I saw her pass by me again, out of the shop, with something in her hands, holding them both together; I supposed them to be the two boxes that contained the money; in about five minutes I saw her return again in the same manner. I heard her go to the desk again, and then return out of the shop; as soon as she was gone, we counted the money; my partner and I had before counted it, and marked 10 s. of it; there was to the value of two guineas in one box; one guinea, one half-guinea, and 10 s. and 6 d. and 2 s. in another, in silver and halfpence; out of those two boxes there were missing, 5 s. and 8 d. We missed out of the box, where the guinea was, 5 s, and 8 d. in half pence out of the other; then we locked the desk, and, in the morning, had a search warrant, and found 3 s. that were marked, upon her.</p>
<p>Q. How did you mark the money?</p>
<p>Konmacker. We filed a little notch on the edge, in the milling, towards the head, on them. (The money produced, and inspected by the jury.) At first, she said, she had nothing by her but her own money.</p>
<p>Q. How long had she been servant in the family?</p>

After three weeks and three days, I had the door broke open; then I missed the sheets and pillowbier: I afterwards was told by my baker, he was in New Prison; I went there and saw him; I asked him for the key of my door; he said, the constable in White chapel had it: I asked him for my sheets and pillowbier; he said, they were pawned, first for 8 s. and after that he had sold them for 10 s. to a pawnbroker, in Golden-lane, near Old-Street Turnpike. I went and got a search warrant, and found them at Mr. Kent's, a pawnbroker there; he said, he took them in all together; and the prisoner owned, he wrapped them round his body, and so carried them out of my house, and pawned them all together.</p>

They all came from behind a butt, by a tree: he said, D - n his eyes, knock him down; he never touched me. My money was in my waistcoat pocket, half-pence and silver together; the first man that laid hold of me, searched me; he took and stripped my waistcoat pocket open, and took-out 3 s. 6 d. in silver, and the rest in half-pence, 6 s. and 7 d. 1/2 in all; after that, they took up my apron, and clapt their hand upon each thigh, and asked if I had any more? I said, I had no more in the world. Then one of the men that was going away, said, D - n his eyes, give him 3 d. to carry him home, and instead of that, they gave me a groat, which I carried home in my hand.</p>
<p>Q. Did he, which you imagine to be the prisoner, seem to be in their company?</p>
<p>Bird. He did; and afterwards they went all cross the road together; but it being so dark, I could not be positive of the man's face; I suppose it to be the prisoner, by his frock and his hat, an old cock'd up hat, and a brownish frock, like that he now has on. After this, I was drinking with some coopers, at the Ship ale house, the bottom of Nightingale-lane: they asked me, which way I was robb'd? I told them, and described the prisoner; one of them went out, and fetched him in to me. I said, I believed, when he came in, him to be the man, to the best of my knowledge, but
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176312070015"/> he said, he never saw me that night, and could bring good witnesses where he was at that time, and offered to go to Justice Scott's directly, and went to the door, but Justice Scott was not at home. After this, he was going to work again.</p>
<p>Q. What trade is he?</p>
<p>Bird. He is a cooper by trade; he works in the cooperidge near the place where we were: after that, one Newton insisted I should take him up. He was, and the next day taken before Justice Berry, who committed him to Newgate; when he was taken, he had the same sort of a hat on.</p>
<p>Q. Was there any light near where you was robb'd?</p>
<p>Bird. There was a lamp near me. It was not above 5 yards from me, when I stood between the posts.</p>
<p>Q. Could that lamp afford you such light, so as to distinguish his person?</p>
<p>Bird. I did think it was he; I was positive it was the same frock.</p>
<p>Q. Can you say the prisoner was the man?</p>
<p>Bird. I would not for all the world swear he was the man.</p>
<p>Q. Have you any other witness?</p>
<p>Bird. No, I have not.</p>

<p>Q. What part of your house was broke?</p>
<p>Stanley. To a window in a little back room are siding sashes, and on the outside are iron bars that cross each other, some upright, and some are fixed cross them, which makes square holes in them. In the morning, I found the sash was drawn back, and they made shift to get between the bars. They were not displaced.</p>
<p>Q. Where does that window open to?</p>
<p>Stanley. It opens into a yard, and there is a door that opens into Bell-alley, but that has been nailed up 3 or 4 years.</p>
<p>Q. Was the window on the ground floor?</p>
<p>Stanley. It was.</p>
<p>Q. Were the sashes fastened?</p>
<p>Stanley. No, there is no fastening to them; I imagined the bars were security enough.</p>
<p>Q. How wide is the window?</p>
<p>Stanley. It is about four or five feet wide, we found the cupboard in the bar broke open, that is in the tap room, about 4 or five yards from the window. I miss'd my plate, the same as mentioned in the indictment. They were taken from out of the cupboard.</p>
<p>Q. When did you see your plate last?</p>
<p>Stanley. I saw it over night. I made some brandy and water in the pint mug just before I went to bed, which was about 10 o'clock.</p>
<p>Q. Did you lock your cupboard door?</p>
<p>Stanley. It was locked over night, but was forced open; there were two folding doors to it, where I kept my books, plate, and spirituous liquors.</p>
<p>Q. How far were the iron bars asunder at the window?</p>
<p>Stanley. I think the holes were 8 or 9 inches square. I desired two of my neighbours to try them, and they being thin men, they both got through them. I advertised the things. Some of my neighbours came and told me, the prisoner, from a starving condition, was seen to have some money; so I went after her to shiperton, near Windsor, hearing the coachman had carried her there the day after this was done; there I took her at her mother's house; nothing being found opon her, she was cleared. This was on a Friday in last sessions, and the Thursday after she was stopt with the silver mug. I went to her in Wood-street Compter; there she ordered the goal-keeper to write me a note, to direct me where to get the spoons and things; that I should find some in a washing-tub, and the others in a lye-tub, at her mother's back door, at Shiperton.

<p>Q. Did it seem to have been fresh killed?</p>
<p>Argell. It might hav e been killed a day, it was cold.</p>

<p>Argell. I saw it on the Thursday before; there were 15 of them in all, the rest were all there.</p>
<p>Job Blandford. I live in Featherstone street, and keep a tallow-chandler's shop. On the Tuesday morning, about 10 o'clock, the 15th of Nov. the prisoner came into my shop, with a bag in his hand, and asked me if I bought suet?</p>
<p>Q. Did you know him before?</p>
<p>Blandford. I never saw him before, to my knowledge; he put his bag on the counter, and shewed it me. I said, what is the price? he said, two pence half-penny a pound; he asked under the market price. It appeared to me to be the contents of the inside of a sheep, the caul-fat, the gut-fat, and kidney-fat. I saw some appearance of grass amongst it; I suspected it was stolen out of a grass field. It was not a very fat sheep; the kidneys were particularly thin in the fat.</p>
<p>Q. What was fat worth at that time?</p>
<p>Blandford. It was worth something more than 3 d. a pound. I asked him, how he came by it? he first mentioned some gentleman's name that lived on the farther side of Islington, that he brought it from there. I asked him. how he came to bring such fat as that from a gentleman's house? In 5 minutes time he said, he and another man bought it between them, to fell to get some soap. After that he said he bought it of a man in Islington Road. When I found he varied so much, and he was gathering his bag up in order to carry it somewhere else, I having a servant in my cellar, I said, I can't see that I can well weigh it in these scales; I made as if I would go for some scales, and call'd my man up, and got a constable, and took him and the fat to Hick's-hall to the Justices: there he stood to it, that he bought it of a man in Islington Road, and offered to send for somebody to his character, but he declin'd that.</p>
<p>Q. How much fat was there?</p>
<p>Blandford. There was 14 pounds and a half, bag and all; and I weigh'd the bag afterwards, and that weigh'd a pound and an half.</p>

He got out into the street, and pull'd off his cloaths to fight some man in the next room. I went from him to go home: he would not go, nor take the money; so I took it. I went after that to look for him, and met him with a girl in the neighbourhood.</p>
<p>Q. What money did you take?</p>
<p>Alvares. I put a quarter guinea and 4 s. and 6 d. in my pocket. The people wanted him to stay all night. I said, don't make a fool of yourself. He would stay all night.

<p>Q. What is he?</p>
<p>M. Taylor. He is a 'change broker. He sent me to a public house, the White Lyon, for a pot of beer, for supper; while that was drawing, I sat down by the prisoner at the bar: the prisoner said to me, he had got a watch in his pocket, and he would pawn or sell it, if I would go and lie with him all night. I told him, I was no such person. He said he would give me the money, whate'er it came to, either by pawning or selling. I happened to stay till Mr. Alvares came for me; I told Mr. Alvares what he said. He told Mr. Alvares he would sell or pawn it to get some cloaths. They went out together, and I went home.</p>
<p>Q Where was Mr. Alvares when you went out for the pot of beer?</p>
<p>M. Taylor. He was at home.</p>
<p>Newton. I verily believe Mr. Alvares is greatly more to blame than the prisoner at the bar.</p>

<p>Cook. He has a white spot on the saddle-mark, about as big as a half crown, on the off side. I went about the country, and not finding him, I advertised him on the 1st of Nov.

I went down, and upon enquiring, found that the man that bought the horse, was come up to London with him. I found the horse in a field by Kent-street road, in the possession of Mr. Lutham: this was a fortnight and 3 days after we had lost him. I told Mr. Lutham it was my horse: he said if it was, I might have him. The prisoner after that, told us, he drove the horse up against our field gate, and catched him, and sold him to that man

<p>Q. Do you know where he went to live afterwards?</p>

<p>Q. How far is that place from London?</p>
<p>Lutham. It is about 12 miles and a half from London; the prisoner said he was going to Tunbridge. He said the horse cost him five guineas, that he bought him to go a smuggling with, but he was going into place again, and was willing to sell him.</p>
<p>Q. What did you give for him?</p>
<p>Lutham. He ask'd 5 guineas; at last we agreed for 2 guineas and a half, and paid for him at the Cock at Chipset: the same horse Mr. Cook came and own'd in the field by Kent-street road. After I paid for the horse, the prisoner gave me this receipt; he said his name was Williams; he could not write, but made his mark by that name.</p>

I always had an extreme good character of him, as a very honest fellow: my brother recommended him to me as such, and I found him so; he was trusted at my brother's with horses and things, and with me with every thing I had. My going abroad in the government's service, was the cause of my leaving him; I recommended him to Mr. Danser, a surgeon, at Barnet; this was in the latter end of the year 58. Mr. Danser gives him an extream good character, and would have attended here if possible he could, but as the trial was very uncertain coming on, he could not.</p>

<p>S. Seers. I have been in England about eight months; the prisoner came to me about 10 days before he was taken up, and told me he was out of service; I told him I would take care and get him a place. Was he at liberty, I really would take him into my service now.</p>

On Sunday morning the 11th of November, I went on board; the people there said there had been thieves on board. I took a candle and looked about the vessels; there were none broke on the Saturday; I saw a quantity of tobacco was gone, about 20 or 30 pounds. On Sunday morning, I went in search of the two prisoners, who were gone that morning: I took Hallett, who told me there were more concerned than himself. He told me where he had disposed of it, and shewed me the house.</p>
<p>Q. What was you to do for him in return for telling you?</p>
<p>Steward. Nothing at all. I told him he should go along with the other.</p>
<p>Q. Did he expect not to be prosecuted for telling you so?</p>
<p>Steward. I suppose he understood he was not to be prosecuted. On the Sunday night, I acquainted the captain with it, (I had let him go) the captain thought proper to take him up, and carry him before the Justice, and there he confest the same. When Herring was taken up, he confess'd he was concerned, but he said but little Hallet said Herring was as much concerned as he was.</p>
<p>Hallet's Defence.</p>
<p>The mate came on shore, on Summer's key, on Sunday, and took us on board, and told me, if would tell him which way the tobacco went, I

The prisoner lived with me as a common servant in the house; about the latter end of October, I think, we found out things being taken; I am not certain when they were taken, others in the house suspected the prisoner, but I did not myself, till within a week of what happened; I had unlocked a drawer in my bureau, and left the key in it; when I came into my room at night, I saw the key there; I opened the drawer, and missed a guinea; I knowing no body had had any business there but herself; I went down and told it below.</p>
<p>Q. How many maid-servants do you keep in the house?</p>
<p>A. Flight. I keep only one.</p>
<p>I was afraid then, she was not so good as she should be; I was fearful of taking her character away, as I had a character with her; her bed-fellow took an opportunity to take her key of her box at night, and brought it to my sister that lives with me. In the morning I was told, my sister had opened the prisoner's box, which stood in a garret, up four pair of stairs (the prisoner lay with a journeywoman, up two pair of stairs; I then went to my brother to advise with him, what I had best to do; he said, as things of mine had been seen in her box, that were of a considerable value, I had better send for a constable, and have the box opened; I did, and, when it was opened, the things had been removed out of it; there was a long-lawn apron of mine found in it; I then talked with her, and, with a great deal to do, she fetched the things to me from where she had put them; she would have delivered them to me, and I refused to take them; then she delivered them to the constable: they were all pinned up together.</p>
<p>Q Where did she fetch them from?</p>
<p>A. Flight. She fetched them from out of the room where she lay; the bundle was opened in my presence; there were every thing that is laid in the indictment, except the lawn-apron, and two or three trifling things.</p>
<p>Q. Mention them?</p>
<p>A. Flight. A pair of silver tea-tongs, four muslin-aprons, a silk-apron, five muslin-ruffles, two gause handkerchiefs, two linnen-caps laced, three yards and a half of lace, three yards and three quarters of gause eight yards and a half of lace; sixteen yards of lace, four yards of silk-ribbon, ten yards of persian silk, one dimity robe for a child a remnant of crimson sattin, a pair of child's shoes, and a fan; when I went for the prisoner first, I told her, my sister had seen these things in her box; at first she denied it very strongly, but afterward she did acknowledge all that was in that bundle were my property; at first, she said nothing of the guinea, or that ever she took any thing that belonged to me.</p>
<p>Q. Where do you suppose she stole them from?</p>
<p>A. Flight. She acknowledged, she took the best of the lace from off the counter, while my sister was serving a customer.</p>
<p>Q Mention her words as near as you can recollect?</p>
<p>A. Flight. She said, she came down for some thing, and took one of the cards of lace; the rest of the lace we think she took, as it was carried up for work: There were some things in wear, some I believe she took out of my drawers, and out of the soul-bag; when I once went out, when I came to the end of my journey I missed an apron, which I knew I had laid out, in order to take with me.</p>
<p>Cross Examination.</p>
<p>Q. Had there been a quarrel between the prisoner and the rest of the people in the house?</p>
<p>A. Flight. Not as I know of.</p>
<p>Q. Whether the apron you saw in her box was after the key had been taken from her in the night-time?</p>
<p>A. Flight. It was.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see her take the things out of the drawer?</p>
<p>A. Flight. I did, her back was towards me, I was in the room.</p>

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176312070022"/>Q. Were they taken out of a drawer where the journeywoman puts her things?</p>
<p>A. Flight. They were.</p>

<p>A. Flight. No, it had not.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know that she took the guinea?</p>
<p>A. Flight. I heard her acknowledge she took it; and, I believe, there are several others here, that heard it too.</p>

<p>Q. What time of the night?</p>
<p>M. Flight. It was betwixt eleven and twelve: I had desired Miss to get the key out of her pocket, and bring it to me.</p>
<p>Q. Where was you then?</p>
<p>M. Flight. I was in bed, and Miss brought it to me in the dark; my room is betwixt her room and the garret. I laid it under my pillow till morning, and got up about six; then I went up and opened her box.</p>
<p>Q. Did you lay alone?</p>
<p>M. Flight. I had another journeywoman, named Wintworth, lay with me, she is now out of town. I opened the box, and saw a bundle which I opened, and saw most of the things that were found in it afterwards; then I pinned it up again, and locked the box, and the journeywoman that lay with me took the key, and went down with me, and put it under the drawers, where the bundle was afterwards found: I acquainted my sister with it; I was in the room when the prisoner was sent for, when the constable was there. My sister charged her with taking the guinea, and several other things; she denied taking any thing, then my sister desired her to go up and fetch the things. At first, she said, she had lost the key of her box; but, at last, she pulled it out of her stays. I saw the long-lawn apron, and some laced caps, that were not in the bundle in the box, when it was open. After that, my sister desired her to deliver the bundle, saying, she knew she had it; then she went with my sister into the room, and offered it her; my sister refused it, then she delivered it to the constable. We did not, at that time, know she had removed them from her box, the box was up four pair of stairs, the bundle was in the second pair of stairs room.</p>
<p>A. Flight. She went directly to the drawer, without opening any other. These drawers were used in common by her and the journeywoman.</p>
<p>Q. To M. Flight. Had any thing passed before the constable was sent for, that gave her any suspicion?</p>
<p>M. Flight. Nothing but missing the key out of her pocket, which I suppose, made her mistrust.</p>
<p>Q. What time was she first called down stairs?</p>
<p>M. Flight. That was between nine and ten o'clock, that was the first notice she had, that she was likely to be charged.</p>
<p>Q. What time did she get up that morning?</p>
<p>M. Flight. She got up between six and seven, that was her usual time.</p>
<p>Q. Had she been out at the door?</p>
<p>M. Flight. She had not, as I know of; she could not easily have gone out, without being known. I had desired a journeywoman to watch her, that she did not go out.</p>
<p>Cross Examination.</p>
<p>Q. What time did the journeywoman bring you the key?</p>
<p>M. Flight. I did; I rang for the maid to get up, to go down stairs to warm a little water, in order that the journeywoman might take the key out of her pocket.</p>
<p>Q. Did you take any body with you, when you opened her box?</p>
<p>M. Flight. No; I did not?</p>
<p>Q. Was the box locked?</p>
<p>M. Flight. It was?</p>
<p>Q. Did you take any notice to the prisoner, what you had seen, when she first came down in the morning?</p>
<p>M. Flight. No; I did not.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see her come down?</p>
<p>M. Flight. I saw her between seven and eight in the morning; she came down to breakfast, and went up to make her bed betwixt eight and nine.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see the bundle taken out of the drawer?</p>

The prisoner, herself, said she did not know where it was; I was charged with her; I said, Molly, produce the key, you had much better produce it; she said, she knew nothing of it, but, upon intreaties from her mistress, me, and others, she, at last, pulled it out of her bosom, and looked like one that was struck almost dumb; then I said, now, Molly, go up and unclock your box, and let us see, whether this bundle is in your box or not. I followed her up, and the two Mrs. Flights; when the box was open. there was no bundle to be found; she was asked where it was, and was told it was in that box that morning; she said, she knew nothing of a bundle, or that there had been one there; Mrs. Flight said, she had seen it, and desired her to fetch it; then they went down one or two pair of stairs, I did not go with them; the prisoner there produced the bundle, that was unpinned or untied, before me.</p>

<p>I know nothing of them. I only saw them in my box: I lay with a young lady; they called me up between twelve and one at night my pockets had laid on the drawers two or three days before the young lady owned she had taken the key out of my pocket while I was down stairs they kept the key all night. About 10 o'clock. I wanted to go to my box. I felt for my key, and missed it out of my pocket. I kneeled down, and took it up under the drawers, I saw a bundle which was not mine I took it out of my box, and carried it down into the room where I lay, which I thought a person had put in there, they all owed me a great grudge. I was going out of the house several times, but they would not let me: the next day, they went for a constable, and gave me into his custody; they told me they lost a guinea out of a bureau, and asked me if I knew any thing of it? I said no. They asked me if I had any more things in my custody of theirs? I said I had not. They said we know of more, for we have seen every thing you have in your box. They dragged me up stairs, and in my fright, I did not know where my key was. It was in my bosom; I opened my box; they asked me where my bundle was? I said I had carried it down into the room where I use. They shook a guinea out of it, and asked me if any thing besides was there. I said I believed not. I did not know what they were. I never saw the lace till they opened it in the room; they asked me when I took the lace? I said I knew nothing of it.</p>

There came two gentlemen's servants, and asked for him; I told him he was wanted, he got up; they came up to him, and charged him with stealing the things, and that he had better acknowledge it; he denied it: he was taken before Justice Cox; there he said that the wicket of the gate was open, and he got in that way, and took the shirts and other things.</p>
