I missed the things mentioned, out of my room, on the 13th of June; on that day the prisoner came to me, as I was in the hospital, and asked me to take a walk to Knights-bridge: we went there, and had a dinner of cod-fish. I perceived he wanted to get me in liquor. When we parted, I sent word by him to my wife, I would be with her in the morning. In the morning, my wife came to the hospital, crying, and told me the prisoner was gone away with all my cloaths: he came to me, and seeing her, ran down stairs, and I never saw him from that time, till the day after Christmas-day. I got to be an out-patient in the hospital, and made it my business to enquire after him, and was informed that day, he was at the Red Lion, in Chandler-street. As soon as he saw me, he whip'd up, and ran away, but was soon taken; he then had a suit of cloaths of mine on: we took him before Justice Fielding: he told him he bought them of a Jew, and that he never knew me. He had often been at my house, and passed for a lawyer, and I have since found, he passed with others for a doctor. I came acquainted with him by his lodging at my brother's.</p>
<p>Mrs. Oake. On the 13th of June, the prisoner came to my room, about 8 at night (he used to come every day): he said he had been to my husband, at the hospital, and my husband was pretty well: he said he was hungry, and gave me 2 s. and desired me to go and buy him a rabbet, and fry it; I gave him one again, and went and bought a rabbet, and fry'd it for him. While I was frying it, he went down stairs, and I never saw him again, till about a quarter after 10; then he came and asked me ten thousand pardons; he went and ordered a pot of beer; he was all in a sweat, and look'd confus'd; then he eat the rabbet; sometimes he had no money, but at that time he had money: he went away about a quarter after eleven, and I missed my husband's cloaths in about an hour after, (mentioning them by name.)</p>

I said, yes; he said, have you any business here? I said, yes; said he, I pawned a watch with you; I said, my business was about that: When we came to Sir John's, the office was so full of people, when the door was open, the prisoner, I believe, went out among the rest, and I saw no more of him, till last Monday, when Sir John sent for me again; he told me, the man was taken up for something else in the city: he was examined, I produced the watch, but the prosecutor did not attend, being then ill; but last Wednesday he did attend, and swear to the watch, as his property; the prisoner acknowledged he pledged it, but said, he knew nothing of the robbery. ( The watch produced, and deposed to.)</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>About three or four weeks ago. I was going up Saffron-hill; I went into a house, I believe the London-prentice; I called for a pint of beer; a sea-faring man stood by me; he pulled out a watch, and asked me, if I would buy it; he asked 36 s. for it, we agreed, I gave him all the money I had, and said, if he would go a little way with me, I would help him to the remainder; I went to the pawnbrokers, and he staid without: I went out to him, and told him, the watch was not worth the money he sold it for: I know no more of the watch being stolen, than any gentleman in this court.</p>
<p>Q. To Barnivell. Did the prisoner go out and come in again, at the time he pawned the watch?</p>
<p>Barnwell. He did, and pulled out some money, and laid it on the counter.</p>

I was standing at the next shop to Miss Ramsay's, it is a milliner's shop, looking through the glass, having some jeweller's work to sell: there were people in the shop; I saw a man come out of the shop with a slapt hat, and an apron on; he unbuttoned the door and came out, with a box under his arm; and, in about two minutes after, Stop thief was cried out; the mob laid hold of the prisoner: some gentleman was there said, he had drop'd the box on his toes. I saw the man, as soon as he dropt the box, run cross the way again; it was not the prisoner; the prisoner is not the man that I saw come out of the shop with the box.</p>
<p>Q Are you sure of that?</p>
<p>Hatton. I am sure of it: I am sure that man was taller than this man: I saw him unbutton the door, and go in, and button the door again, when he came out.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure he is not the man?</p>
<p>Hatton. I am sure he is not: that man ran cross the way; I did not see this man before he was taken hold of, and I saw the other man run cross the way when Stop thief was cried.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know Mr. Baillie?</p>
<p>Hatton. No, I do not.</p>
<p>Q. Look at him. (Mr. Baillie stands up.)</p>
<p>Hatton. I think I saw this man among the crowd. I think he had hold of the man at the bar afterwards.</p>
<p>Q. How long after the box was down on the ground, was it the prisoner was laid hold on?</p>
<p>Hatton. It was not above two or three minutes, I believe.</p>
<p>Q. Where was the other man, at the time Stop thief was first called?</p>
<p>Hatton. The man had crossed the way, and, I believe, ran a dozen yards then. - He ran immediately as soon as Stop thief was cried out.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see the prisoner run?</p>
<p>Hatton. I can't say I did.</p>
<p>Q. Do you say you never saw the prisoner before that night?</p>
<p>Hatton. My lord, I never did.</p>
<p>Q. How came you to be known, to give evidence here?</p>
<p>Hatton. I work among the Jews. I am generally at the King's Arms in Hounsditch on a night. While I was telling the story, some of the Jews went out and brought the prisoner's wife in.</p>
<p>Q. Which side of the shop, where the box came out, was the shop you was looking through the window?</p>
<p>Hatton. That is on the right hand of the shop; it is a milliner's shop.</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176401130012"/>Mr. Ramsay. That shop was shut an hour before that time.</p>
<p>Q. What time of the night was this?</p>
<p>Hatton. It was about 5 o'clock - I think thereabouts.</p>
<p>Mr. Baillie. It was about 7.</p>
<p>Hatton. It could not be 7 o'clock.</p>
<p>Q. Will you venture to swear it was not fix?</p>
<p>Hatton. I will venture to swear it was not.</p>
<p>Q. What day of the week was it?</p>
<p>Hatton. It was a Saturday night, the 18th or 19th of November.</p>

<p>Mr. Ramsay. It was after 7 o'clock: I went out immediately; I went for another man: I met this constable, and carried him with me, and he took hold of the prisoner, and brought him out of the shop directly.</p>
<p>Q. to Baillie. How long had the prisoner been in your custody before Mr. Ramsay came in?</p>
<p>Mr. Baillie. I believe it was about ten minutes; it was rather after 7 o'clock.</p>
<p>Q. to Hatton. Where do you live?</p>
<p>Hatton. I live in Wormwood-street, two doors on the left hand from Bishopsgate-street, by Bishopsgate.</p>

<p>Hatton. I work in the filagree way, making things for ladies hair, and dress caps in the fancy way; and I was looking to see it they had the same sort of goods as I had. The shop was not shut indeed, at that time.</p>
<p>Q. to Baillie. Did you observe that shop to be open?</p>

About a month or five weeks after, I was going up stairs to a woman that mends old cloaths, that lives in the house the prisoner does; going by his room door, I saw him counting a great parcel of half crowns out of his hand into a green purse: I went home and told my husband of it; we knew he was wanting money before; we had often lent him money; the most at a time was 13 s. he owned us 20 s. and 3 d. and had paid me between eight and nine days after our money was gone, and I recollecting that when I was at his house, I laid my key of the room down on his table, while I dined with him. I saw him have it in his hand, but when I went to go away, it could not be found. I was forced to have my lock taken off, for another key to be fitted to it; the lock was not altered at all; and the prisoner had bought cloaths and a great many things: these things together, made me suspect he had got in, and taken my money. I never got the money again.</p>

I miss'd it the next morning; as she was the only person that had been there that we could suspect, I concluded it was likely she might cut it into pieces, to make away with it, by way of sale, or pawn. At the first pawnbroker I went to, I found 2 yards of my cheque; this was in the same court in which I live: I got a warrant, and took her up. She said, if I would let her go to her room, she would give me the remainder of my cloth: upon which, the justice ordered me and the constable to go and search her lodging. We went; she would not open her door; we took her again to the justice: he committed her to Bridewell on suspicion. On the Monday, we had a search warr ant; we went and found her husband; he admitted us into the room; we told him we had a warrant to search his room: he took out about 4 yards and 3 quarters of cheque, that was hid under the bed. We found at Mr. Siers's shop, a pawnbroker, on Clerkenwell-Green, 7 yards pledged there, for 4 s. 6 d. and at Mr. Warner's, a pawnbroker, in St. John's-street, we found 6 yards: then I had found near 20 yards.

I shut up the shop about 5 that evening, the piece of cheque was then in the window; about 7, the prisoner came to pledge something; she refused to take the money I proffered to lend her; she still staid in the shop: when a person came into the shop, she said she would take it: I went up stairs, and bid her stay till I came down; then I gave her the money, and she went away. She came in again, in about an hour after, and brought a hat to pledge; I denied taking it in; she went away, and in about a quarter of an hour she brought in a pot of beer, and asked me to drink; I denied it, and would not a good while; but before she went out of the shop, I did drink: she said it was paid for, and went out of the shop. I never miss'd the cheque, till my master miss'd it; there had been no person but she in that place, from the time my master went out; the other person that came in, was in a different place.</p>

He went and delivered the paper at the house: my master got up, and came upon the wharf to me, and said, Thomas, for God Almighty's sake, be true to me, and take an oath and stand to it, that you delivered twenty-eight sacks to Esq; Leak, if you do not, I am ruined for ever; said I, I will do no such thing, to take an oath for you, I never will: Sir, you know you gave me orders to leave five sacks, which I did; four I received the money for, and one you did; here is the money, if you please to take it; said he, I am so ill, I must go in and lay down; keep the money in your pocket, and give it me at night. I drove twenty-eight sacks to Esq; Leak's a second time; after I shot the last sack, I asked the footman, if he chose to see the sacks told; he came and saw there was twenty-eight of them. I went home to the wharf, and fetched the remainder of the ten chaldron at night: after I had done, I asked if my master was within. Mrs. came, and said he was ill in bed; said I, I should be very glad to speak with him; this evening: she went up and came down, and said, her master wanted me to walk up to him: I did, and said, your servant, Sir, I am very sorrow to see you so ill; he said, I am very ill; how have you made the matter up about Esq; Leak's coals? I said, I heard no more of it; if there is any thing amiss, I left the coals by your order, as I am your servant, and here is the money I received for the other coals, and gave him a six and nine-pence and a five and three-penny piece, which was twelve shillings. Here are the witnesses to whom I delivered the coals.</p>
<p>For the Prisoner.</p>
<p>Mrs. Ashford. I live by Shadwell church. I dealt with Mr. Salloway for coals: the last sack I had, was the Saturday was se'nnight, before Christmas day: I can't recollect the times the prisoner brought them; he brought them never above one sack at a time, but once, then he brought two sacks.</p>
<p>Q. When was that?</p>
<p>Ashford. I believe it may be three months after my child was born, and that was born the 12th of May.</p>
<p>Q. Was Mr. Salloway by at the time they were delivered?</p>
<p>Ashford. I cannot tell that; I only saw him twice at my house.</p>

After I had given her 6 d. she said I must give her 6 d. more for her sister: I gave her another 6 d. Then she said, now, d - n your blood, I'll have another shilling; I said, you shall not. She said, then I'll murder you: I said, no, you shall not. She took a knife, and held it to my belly, and swore she would murder me, in case I did not give her another shilling. When I saw the knife, I hesitated a little; she said, d - n you, why don't you give it me? then I put my hand into my left side pocket, and gave her a shilling: then she said, d - n you, you have got some sly pocket, or other, let me see it; then she turned my apron aside, and put her hand into my pocket. I began to call out; then a person came down from a one pair of stairs higher, and bid her let me go: then I said, one 6 d. was my master's, and I dare not go home without it; she swore she would not give it me: then the other woman that had received a 6 d. of the prisoner, gave that to me again. I was then on the middle of the stairs; then I went to my fellow-'prentice at the play-house, and told him what had happened: I was advised to go to Justice Fielding. I went, and told his clerk of it; he desired me to come again on the Monday evening, and described the two women, and they were taken up very near the same place where I first saw them.</p>
<p>Q. Did you know either of the women before?</p>
<p>Bailey. I never saw either of them before, to my knowledge.</p>
<p>Q. How old are you?</p>
<p>Bailey. I shall be 20 years of age next June.</p>
<p>Q. How many times might you have been at the play last year?</p>
<p>Bailey. I was there but once last year, and but once or twice this year.</p>
<p>Q. Did you make any attempt to get free from them?</p>
<p>Bailey. I can't say I did.</p>
<p>Q. Why did you not, when you was in the street?</p>
<p>Bailey. I began to be frighted, seeing nobody but whores and thieves: I was afraid she would call out murder, and I should fall into bad bread.</p>
<p>Court. So then you rather chose to wait till the other woman came down, to help you up stairs.</p>
<p>Bailey. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. What did they get from you in the whole?</p>
<p>Bailey. Two shillings and two pence, but I got one sixpence back again.</p>
<p>Q. Was it your master's money?</p>
<p>Bailey. No; but I wanted it to go to the playhouse.</p>

<p>Q. When was this?</p>
<p>M. Jones. It was this day 5 weeks.</p>
<p>Q. Where do you live?</p>
<p>M. Jones. I lodge in Cross-lane.</p>
<p>Q. How long have you lodged there?</p>
<p>M. Jones. I lodged there a month.</p>
<p>Q. How long has she lodged in that lane?</p>
<p>M. Jones. I don't know. As we were coming out from drinking the purl, she said, will you go home with me? She met this young man; I was on the other side, turning into Queen-street, about five yards before her: we went cross the street, through Queen-street, and to Cross-street; she asked the young man to go with her; she said, he was her acquaintance: she said, her husband was at home, and he would hand me down the candle to one pair of stairs; we went into a court, to a house next door to the Boot. As I walked before them, she asked me to take hold of his hand; he refus'd it. I said, why should you ask the young man to go, when he does not chuse it; she call'd me fool. I refused to lug him along: I walked before them, and at the door he gave her 2 d. for a pint of purl: she told me to go up stairs, I did: there was a drummer, he gave me a candle upon the stairs: I held it in my hand, and lighted them up stairs as I stood upon the stairs. When they were up stairs, she asked me to come in; then she asked me if I would be concerned with him. I told her I would not: she picked him up. They offered me some beer; I saw him give her 6 d. she asked him for another; he gave her another: she gave me one of them; then she intruded upon him to give her a shilling more: I turned my face to the fire, and he cry'd out murder. I turned round, and saw a knife in her hand: I asked her if she was not ashamed to show a knife to any body. She bid me mind my own business. She did not intend to hurt him, but to fright him, to see if he would
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176401130020"/> give her more money. He said his master sent him on an errand, and gave him 6 d. and if he went home without his errand, his master would use him ill.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see him give her any thing after you saw the knife?</p>
<p>M. Jones. No, I did not. I desired her to give him the 6 d. but she would not; then I gave him the 6 d. I had; he was then gone down stairs, and stood at the street door. There were several people came down, and asked her if she was not ashamed of herself, by reason the young man call'd out, and cry'd, concerning his master's 6 d. I would not go in her company any more. On the Monday, I went and bought me a pair of pumps, and met the prisoner, and another woman with her. I told the other woman what a fright I was in: we were all three taken up about the middle of Queen-street.</p>

I asked the lad if he should know them? he said, he should. I desired him to go into a public-house, a little way down Drury-Lane, and see if any of the parties were there: he did, and said there was none of them. We went down Great Queen-street, then into Little Queen-street; going along, I saw some women standing; I went to them, and said, young man, look at these women; he bid me take hold of the prisoner at the bar: I took her by the wrist; he said, this is the woman, I will swear, that held the knife to me and robbed me; the evidence was going along towards Holborn. I said to her, where are you going? she said she was going home. I called to the young man, to come and look at her: he had a sight of her face, by the light of a lamp, in Little Queen-street; said he, this is the woman that was with her. Mr. Fielding's clerk asked the young man to show the place where he was ill treated; he said he could; we went to Cross-lane: when we came to the place, it was dark; he went and got a half-penny candle, and lighted it, and went directly up to the very room of the prisoner at the bar, and said, this is the room where I was threatened and robbed: we took the two women to Sir

<p>Ward. I do. It was the prisoner at the bar: I saw him.</p>
<p>Q. Were there any other people in that lighter at that time?</p>

This evidence is a servant under me, to take care of these lighters, and other goods, upon the keys: he called me in the dusk of the evening; I stepped forward, with a candle and lanthorn in my hand: he said, I saw a handkerchief handed out of the lighter into an empty lighter; I bid him go and fetch it up; he did; I carried it to a house in Dark-house-lane, and laid it down. After the prisoner came in, I asked him if he knew who took the tobacco? Mr. Ward
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176401130023"/> said, Beckett was the man that handed it out of the lighter; then I carried him to the Compter; I did not see him handle the tobacco at all; neither am I of opinion that he was the man that opened the hogshead, and took it out.</p>
<p>Q. Where do you believe it was taken from?</p>
<p>Linton. From out of a hogshead.</p>
<p>Q. Why do you believe that?</p>
<p>Linton. There had been a hogshead opened, and it was put close too again; but when we came to examine it narrowly, we found some tobacco was missing.</p>
<p>Q. to Ward. Did you examine the hogsheads?</p>
<p>Ward. I did immediately, and found one of the heads was hollow; it went in.</p>
<p>Q. to Linton. Whose tobacco was it?</p>
<p>Linton. It was the property of Messrs. Bucannan, Hinman, and Lankaster; there was no other tobacco that was shipped, but theirs; I have known the prisoner 8 years, and never heard he was detected in any bad action, nor ever saw any thing bad of him. I don't believe he was the man that opened the hogshead.</p>
<p>Q. Explain your reason for your belief?</p>
<p>Linton. All the reason I have to believe that, is, I never saw him down in the lighter; he was at the end of the lighter, holding what we call the Guy. I always looked upon him to be an honest hard-working man.</p>
<p>Q. How much tobacco was missing?</p>
<p>Linton. It is impossible to judge; but according to my opinion, there was more than 20 pounds missing.</p>

My servant and he had some words together; I saw the prisoner go towards the door, with a tankard by his side; it was without a lid. My servant followed him out at the door; in a little time he returned to me, and said, I have let the tankard go to Mr. Marshall's shop (Mr. Marshall is a barber); I said, it is very well; no more passed that night. The next morning, going there, and not finding my tankard, I then suspected it was lost. I made the best enquiry I could, about the prisoner and tankard; I found the prisoner at the Crooked Billet, in Kingsland-road, about four or five days following: I told him, there was something betwixt him and I, and desired to speak to him on one side; he said, he knew there was something. A man in company looked me in the face, and asked what I wanted with the man? I said, unless you behave yourself well, I shall take you along with him. I told the prisoner, if he would tell me where my tankard was, or if he had pawned it, I would pay the money, and take no farther notice of it, and it will be the better for you. He said, he had carried it into Hounsditch, and met a Jew, and the Jew gave him a guinea, and a bad shilling for it: he produced the shilling immediately: we removed him from that public-house to another, and talked to him in the same manner; he persisted in it he could say no more. I asked him, did the Jew ply you, or did you call to him? he said, he was drunk, and could not well tell.</p>

When I put my hand in my pocket again, my handkerchief was gone: the prisoner was then about six or seven yards from me going off, which made me have a suspicion of him; he got to the door: I put my hand through the people, and took him by the collar, and bid him stop a bit; I said, I had lost my handkerchief, and had a suspicion of him: he immediately pulled my handkerchief out of his pocket, and gave it me; I asked him, why he did so? he said he had no work, and poverty drove him to it.
