I gave orders care should be taken of them; they were delivered to the waterman, in his presence, and he was to ship them, but we were to wait a little: the thing in dispute was, which of the two ships we should ship them on board. When we had discharged the carman, Mr. Turpin and I went up together, to give him particular directions concerning shipping those goods; and I knew nothing to the contrary of their being shipped, till the Monday following, about noon, when Mr. Turpin came to my counting-house, and brought the captain's receipt for only four out of five of these cases. The ship is a Spanish ship, called the St. Michael: Mr. Turpin told me, at the same time, that the other trunk was missing, and he was in hopes it was wrong shipped. Upon which, I was very anxious of finding it, it was the richest of the trunks, marked with a Heart, and a Crow-foot on the top, divided in the middle with three letters, J. G. C. in Roman capitals, with No. 15. upon it. The others were different marks; this was a flat trunk, about 3 feet long, and about 22 inches broad, and about 20 deep. I went with Mr. Turpin upon the key, and we made all the enquiry we could, among the shipping, but could not find it; I suppose they must produce this trunk to me.</p>
<p>Q. What were the contents of the things in in the trunk?</p>
<p>Lucas. There were 871 fans, value 164 l. 5 s. two gold trinkets, set with diamonds, value eight guineas; a gold repeating watch, set with diamonds, and other precious stones, value 630 l. a gold toilet, value 28 l. a mother of pearl necklace and ear-rings, and other things; the whole value of the goods, I remember, were from 1000 to 1100 l. I saw them put into the box, which was matted and corded, and I sealed the key with wax, in the counting-house, under the matting. I have made all the diligent enquiry I could, but never could hear any thing of it.</p>

<p>Henson. My master is Mr. Hunter, a watchmaker, at the corner of Lombard-street, next door to the pastry-cooks. I was sent by my master to the custom-house key with a clock, the day before Christmas-day, to be shipped on board; after that I had another Errand to go to Burr-street, St. Catherine's. I delivered the clock at the custom-house key. When I came to Brewer's key I saw Lot Lash standing under the crane, with a flat parcel, like a trunk, matted and corded; he desired me to help him up with it; I went to help him, but it was too heavy for me; I tried but could not; then she said he was afraid the officers would seize it; then I proceeded on my other Errand as far as the Tower; then I saw him with such a thing on his shoulder coming along.</p>
<p>Q. Can you describe the shape or size of that parcel?</p>
<p>Henson. I cannot directly; it was heavy; I followed him over Tower-wharf, where he turned round several times, but for what purpose I do not know; when I came to the farthest end of the wharf he turned towards Tower-hill, and I saw no more of him; I went of my errand, and then home to my master.</p>
<p>Q. How came you to recollect this?</p>
<p>Henson. By the warning being brought to my master's; when he said there was a trunk stolen, then I told him what I had seen.</p>
<p>Q. Where is Brewer's Key?</p>
<p>Henson. It is two or three keys farther than the Custom-house key, towards Tower-hill.</p>

I went to look after her, but mistook my way and did not catch her. I never saw my watch since. I had been almost every night to look for her; and as I was waiting at a public-house on the 31st of January I saw her coming by. I took her up and charged her. She was taken to the watch-house in Leadenhall-street; there she charged me, and the Constable would not let me go without my answering to appear against her for stealing my watch.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>He came and laid hold on my shoulder, and turn'd me about, and said, you are the woman I am looking for; said I, for what? Said he, for robbing me of my watch last Friday night; I said, I know nothing of it; he said it was much such a little woman as I was. He took me to the watch-house and charged me. I am but 15 years old.</p>

We had an information there were some leather, the property of the bankrupt, in the prisoner's room, in the Broadway, Westminster. I went to search on the 30th of January, and saw some soles and other things found there, which the bankrupt says were his property.</p>

On the 30th of January the bankrupt came to my house, and said he had information the prisoner had some of his leather, and desired me to go to Mr. Finleson who got a warrant, and we went with a constable to the prisoner's lodgings; there we found, I think, twenty-five pounds weight of inward sole leather, fifteen lasts, (all marked with the bankrupt's name) and fifty pair of soles, ten dozen welts, and other parcels of leather. The prisoner said he bought eighteen pair of them soles at Mr. Marshman's in the Broadway, Westminster, and picked out eighteen pair from the rest. I asked him in what Manner he bought them; he said, by two or three pair at a time, and said the rest were all the bankrupt's property; and that his method was, as he worked for him at his own lodgings, he went and bought worse leather at the leather-cutters, and put them in and kept his master's soles; and his master's clicker brought the lasts to him.</p>
<p>Q. How long has Mr. Skene been a bankrupt?</p>
<p>Edmonds. He has been a bankrupt ever since October last, when he ran away. There were a few shoes out among the workmen, and when they came in the trade was stopt. I believe the prisoner could not have carried on this scene since he was a bankrupt.</p>

<p>Q. How many pair of shoes might you deliver out to him in a week?</p>
<p>Skene. About 14 or 15 pair. I delivered out all the Materials. I delivered out lasts, but not those that were found in his house; the lasts that he had were only for the army, but these were customers lasts.</p>
<p>Q. If he had taken and kept your leather, and put in worse, could you have discovered it?</p>
<p>Skene. No; not thinking of any fault.</p>
<p>Q. Is the prisoner a creditor under the commission?</p>
<p>Skene. He is of 21 l. I borrowed money of him at two guineas at a time.</p>
<p>Q. When did you become a bankrupt?</p>
<p>Skene. I became a bankrupt in October.</p>
<p>Q. Did he know you was likely to become a bankrupt?</p>
<p>Skene. No; he never pressed me for money, or to give him security for it. (The goods produced in court.)</p>
<p>Skene. The lasts I know by my name on them; they are mine; and I know the soles to be mine by the cutting; they are my own cutting. The prisoner told me he had sent two parcels of my leather to Scotland that he had got in this manner.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>I bought two or three dozen pair of welts. There were several journeymen worked in the house I lived in for my master; and when they went away they did not carry home their lasts; they were found in my custody, but I did not bring them there; I bought a number of soles of journeymen who had them to sell, and in leather-cutter shops, and cut it out myself.</p>

When he was gone I took up the news-paper, and there read an advertisement of such a glass being stolen. He had told me his master lived at the Swan at the bottom of Hay-hill,

The prisoner came the next evening and called for a pint of beer; I stopped him; he would go with me to his master at the Swan, but he attempted to slip from us as we came near the house.

<p>Q. How came she to have an opportunity to do it?</p>
<p>Cole. We were upon the bed at the time; I was going to be familiar with her, but after I found that I declined; upon the other coming in with what we sent for to drink, I got from the bed, and felt in my pocket and found it out.</p>
<p>Q. Then what spoiled your familiarity?</p>
<p>Cole. That was the other woman coming in.</p>
<p>Q. Where had you spent that day?</p>
<p>Cole. I had been with my Brother that lives with Esquire Castle in Spring-gardens.</p>
<p>Q. Was you sober?</p>
<p>Cole. I was quite sober, I had drank only one pot of beer with my brother.</p>
<p>Q. When had you seen your 36 s. piece?</p>
<p>Cole. I took it out of my pocket and looked at it after the other woman was gone out of the room: I had that, a sixpence, and half-a-guinea; I charged the prisoner with it, she said she knew nothing about it; I asked her if she knew any thing of the brass piece, she said she did, and that it was her own; she stript off some of her cloaths to let me see she had it not; I searched the bed but could not find it; I kept her in the room till 10 o'clock; then I charged the watch with her; I offered her half-a-guinea if she would return it, but she would not own that she had it; she was carried before Mr. Alderman Rawlinson the next day, but she said nothing there.</p>

In less than five minutes, Bunyard returned, and took the residue through the hole; he put his hand in, and pulled them out. I saw him move with them in his hand from the window: I followed him immediately. In his running, I cry'd, Stop thief: he ran against a woman, knocked her down, and fell over her; I had not lost sight of him. He was taken, brought back, and committed; he had conveyed the goods away. I can swear he is the man that put his hand in, and took goods out. My goods were taken up by a person and brought into the shop; the prisoner said, he heard the cry, Stop thief, and he ran, in order to catch the thief, and so he fell down. I saw no man running but him, nor none by him, when he took out the goods. (The goods produced.) These are my property, and were lying by the glass which they had broke, within the shop.

The prisoner said, he was running after a thief that was gone before: there was no other person past me, but the prisoner. As I had hold of his collar, I saw him pull his hand out of his pocket; I said, are you going to pull any thing out? he took his hand out; I did not see any thing fall; but in about ten minutes after he was in the prosecutor's shop, the handkerchiefs were brought in by a stranger.</p>

I found five locks broke; I lost out of a closet a silver salver, two small silver dessert forks, a silver table spoon, two silver teaspoons, a pair of cotton stockings, and a pair of worsted stockings, and several things that I think trifling to mention; there was a feather-bed thrown out at a window into the garden. I sent for three of my neighbours to see what damage I had received: I got Mr. Bolt to advertise my plate, and offered a reward of five guineas for the things I lost. After that, I went before Sir

On Sunday morning, the 22d of January, the prisoner Robins, came to my house, and knocked me up: my wife went to the door: he said, he had a piece of plate to sell. I imagined he wanted to inform against me, in case I bought any thing on the Sunday: I sent the maid privately for a constable; she went, and brought one. The prisoner told me, he lived in Gray's-Inn-lane; I asked him if any body recommended him to me? he said no; but that he had bought a watch of me a while ago, and that I had used him very ill, it would not go, and he was forced to sell it to a Jew. I knew at the same time, I never sold him any: he told me, the salver was a family-piece of plate, the property of his mother. I gave the constable charge of him.</p>
<p>Mr. Bolt. I know all the prisoners. I was sent for by the prosecutrix, on Tuesday the 17th of January, about 2 o'clock, in order to see in what condition every thing was. When I came there, the glazier was just putting in a quarey; (that is the reason he is produced here as an evidence, I not seeing the window in the condition he found them) we found her chest of drawers broke open, in the passage leading to the room, the door of her chamber broke all to pieces, and a large kitchen poker broke in two pieces, lying near it. In her room, several of the drawers were open, and the things had been rumaged. Several boxes were broke in another room, and the locks lying by them; there was never a bed on a bedstead; the bed was thrown out at a window; we found several cupboards broke open.

I got the things advertised, and put out some hand-bills; and on Monday night, I had a letter by Sir John's order, to let me know a man was taken up on suspicion of stealing plate, and that he owned he had buried a silver salver behind a hay-rick, in Mr. Bannister's ground; he keeps an inn at Stains, near where Robins lives. The Justice advised us to go and search the ricks, and the house where Robins lived, for the rest of the plate. I went there, and found a hole that had been fresh dug, we could find nothing; we searched the rick, then we searched the prisoner's lodgings. The next morning, Madam Watts came to town, and swore to her salver; then Robins declared before Sir John, that he and the other two prisoners were concerned in the robbery; he said, the first made an attempt on the cellar-door, and broke it open, but the water was so deep

Then they consulted who should sell the plate; he said, he himself was not in the house, but stood all the time at the bottom of the ladder, and walking backwards and forwards; that he himself was pitched upon to sell the plate, being the cleanest dressed. That he came up on the Friday morning, and sold the small plate. We took a coach, and went to the place where he mentioned, a silver-smith, Mr. Masters, in Coventry-street, and found the applescoop, table-spoons, and the forks; we took him in the coach with us; I had a warrant from Sir John, and took up the other two prisoners.

The prosecutrix's house stands upon Hamptoncourt road, some distance from any other; that Davis lives in the town, and they used to meet at her house. After I had taken Galliher, and delivered him into the custody of the constable, Godfrey sent for me, and said, if I would let her out of the round-house, she would confess all to me.

That man and the prisoner resembled; they might be brothers, I never saw them before: I said I was not going to dispute with him about it; upon that, Mr. Miller, who was on the other side the kennel, said, Come away, don't be talking to them fellows; the prisoner was standing close to me; he saw the chain of my watch, clapped his hand upon it, and took my watch out of my pocket; I saw it in his hand, and strove to catch it: I called to Mr. Miller, and said, I had lost a very valuable gold watch; we pursued, and the prisoner was never out of my sight till he was taken; I refused fifteen 36 s. pieces for that watch the last time I was in France; there was a cornelian seal to it set in gold. I never saw a man, or any thing that could run equal to the prisoner, except a dog or a horse; he had not been catched, only some people hearing the call, Stop thief, seized him by mere chance: After he was taken, the other man that we saw talking with him came up, and said, Do you think that man has got the watch? I'll go and talk to him; he went quite close to him and jostled with him; and I make no doubt but that man got the watch; he came pretending to vindicate his character.</p>
<p>Q. Was this before he was searched?</p>
<p>Bishop. It was; there was nothing found upon the prisoner but four or five pocket-handkerchiefs of different sorts.</p>
<p>Q. from Prisoner. Whether you did not charge another person with stealing your watch before you charged me?</p>
<p>Bishop. I charged the other man as an accomplice, and also a third person; I was willing to charge them all: But as I knew the prisoner was the man that took my watch, I let them go.</p>
<p>Q. from Prisoner. Did not you come to me in prison, and-say, if I would give you your watch you would not prosecute me.</p>
<p>Bishop. I said to the prisoner he had better confess he had my watch, for I was certain he was the man that took it. I have no other view in this but public justice; I never expect to see my watch again.</p>
<p>Q. Was you sober?</p>
<p>Bishop. I was as sober as I am this moment.</p>

Mr. Bishop seeing the gentleman in liquor, desired him as a friend to go home to his lodgings; there were several people about he did not like their aspects; he said he would assist him to his lodgings if he pleased; the woman immediately said, she imagined we were two sharpers, or pickpockets, that intended to take the gentleman from her and rob him; passing along, one of the two men, not the prisoner, said to Mr. Bishop, that the woman might be as honest as he, or e'er a one of us, and wanted to quarrel, and kept shuffling backwards and forwards within a couple of yards of us; I stept on about six or eight paces before him; the first thing I heard was, Mr. Bishop calling me to stop, he had lost his gold watch; upon which I stopt short, and saw a man run across the street, who I immediately pursued; (that was the prisoner) he ran very fast; I called out, Stop thief; he ran a considerable way before he was stopt; I was not twice the breadth of this court-room from him all the time.</p>
<p>Q. Which way did he run?</p>
<p>Miller. He ran towards St. Paul's. I am a stranger in the town. There were other people pursuing; as I kept calling he was brought back to the watch-house, and was there a considerable

<p>Q. What, any body that come?</p>
<p>Reynolds. Any body that comes may have a lodging.</p>
<p>Q. How long have you lived there?</p>
<p>Reynolds. I have lived there twenty-three years. I occupy the lower part of the house, the parlour and kitchen.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know all the people to whom you let lodgings?</p>
<p>Reynolds. No, I do not; I have sometimes people from out of the country that I never saw in my life before.</p>
<p>Q. What have you to say against the prisoners at the bar?</p>
<p>Reynolds. On Friday, the 3d of this instant, between 10 and 11 at night, my servant came and told me there was a light in the one-pair of stairs room; I knew nobody should be there, because that was not inhabited: I took a couple of pistols and ran there; there I found a bed at the foot of the stairs, wrapped up ready to be carried away: I called for assistance, Mr. Scott came: The back door was open.</p>
<p>Q. Was this your dwelling house?</p>
<p>Reynolds. No, It was not; it was an uninhabited house of mine; the woman at the bar was found concealed under the sacking of the bed. I went and searched the prisoner's apartment, and there I found five blankets, a quilt, two pillows, and two pillow-cases; six pictures, 2 glass decanters, a large looking-glass, and a great many pieces of china, all my property: They were taken out of the one-pair of stairs, and two-pair of stairs rooms, in that house. The prisoners were tenants of mine. There came twenty or thirty people to my assistance. The man was taken among the rest of the people in the house.</p>
<p>Q. Are the prisoners man and wife?</p>
<p>Reynolds. I know nothing to the contrary but that they are.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see the man when you first went into the room?</p>
<p>Reynolds. No, I did not. On the Monday a person came from the Compter, and let me know where I might go in Harp alley and find more of my things: I went into Harp-alley; there I found a pier glass and eight pictures. (The goods produced and deposed to.)</p>
<p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176402220019"/>Q. How long is it ago since any body lived in that house?</p>

On the 3d of February, between ten and eleven at night, I was going to bed, I heard an out-cry of fire; then I heard there were thieves in Mr. Reynolds's uninhabited house; I went, and there stood Mr. Reynolds in the yard, with a pistol in his right hand, and another under his left arm. I asked him if he knew who was in the house? he said he could not tell, but had reason to believe there were thieves; he was afraid to go in. I said, give me one of the pistols, and I'll go in; he did. I went in, and the first thing I put my hand upon, was a bed that lay against a door: I went up into the one pair of stairs room; there was no bed upon the bedstead, and in the two pair of stairs room, I found the woman at the bar, under the sacking of the bed; she seeing I had a pistol, begged I would not hurt her; she came from under the bed, and I took her down stairs, and delivered her to the watchman. At the time they were taking charge of her, the man at the bar came down with a blunderbuss in his hand, and said, he had been firing it up the chimney, believing there were thieves there. I stopped him, and asked him where he was going? he said he was going to Mr. Reynolds's house for more fire-arms, to fire up the other chimney below; I said he should not go till Mr. Reynolds came: when he came, I delivered him to him.</p>
<p>Q. Did you tell him you had got his wife?</p>
<p>Scott. No, I did not. They were both carried to the Compter; and on the Saturday, before my Lord Mayor. My Lord asked the man what he intended to do with the goods that were found in his apartment? he said, he did not take them with a view to sell them, but only to make a little money of them. As we were carrying them to the Compter, the woman said, she was very sorry for what she had done, but it was done, and there was no help for it: if she was to die, she was not the first that must die. I asked the man, which way they got in? he said, by breaking the cellar door: I went to Harp-alley, and saw the other things there.</p>
<p>Q. What name did the woman at the bar go by?</p>
<p>Scott. She was always known by the name of Pervis; I never heard of her being married to any body.</p>
<p>Q. What are you?</p>
<p>Scott. I am a painter, and live in one of Mr. Reynolds's houses.</p>

My landlady went to enquire among the pawnbrokers in the neighbourhood, and came home and told me, Mr. Davidson would have me to call upon him; I went to him, and he asked me what sort of buckles mine were? I told him, and where I bought them, and that I gave 27 s. for them. He asked me if I had any suspicion of any body? I told him, I had, of a man that lodged in the same house. He said, if I could bring that man to his sight, he would help me to the sight of my buckles. My landlord and I went to see for the prisoner, and found him, and with a great deal of persuasion, he came home with us. Then my landlord went for Mr. Davidson: when he came and saw him, he said, he was the man that brought and sold a pair of buckles to him; then I got a constable and charged him; the prisoner fell into a great passion with the pawnbroker, and called him villain. Mr. Davidson shewed me a pair of buckles, but I thought they were not so wide as mine; I had worn them but twice in my life; I had had them but 13 days, they were taken out of my pumps in my room. (A large wrought pair of silver buckles produced in court. He takes them in his hand.) I can't pretend to swear to them; if I do, I shall swear against my conscience.</p>
<p>Q. Where did you buy the buckles you lost?</p>
<p>Underwood. I bought them in Coleman-street.</p>
<p>Q. How did you describe the buckles to the pawnbroker?</p>
<p>Underwood. I described them as a large pair of wrought silver buckles. The prisoner proposed to make me satisfaction before the constable; when I charged him, he called the constable and me into a back room, at the Coach and Horses, in High-Timber-street, and said, if I would let him go about his business, he would make me satisfaction in a fortnight's time: he said he was not the thief, but he knew who the thief was.</p>
<p>Q. from Prisoner. Whether he has not acknowledged these buckles are not his?</p>
<p>Underwood. I never have acknowledged them to be mine.</p>
<p>Q. What do you think of them now?</p>
<p>Underwood. I can't swear to the buckles.</p>
<p>Q. Have you ever said they were not your buckles?</p>
<p>Underwood. I have several times, especially when I first saw them.</p>

I asked him if the buckles were his own? he said, they were. He said, he was just come out of the country, and wanted a little money. I asked if he wanted to pledge them? he said, he wanted to sell them outright; that they cost him 27 s. and they were not much the worse for wear; that he expected not to lose a great deal by them; they weighed 4 oz. 4 dwts. there are two brass wires, for which we commonly allow 2 dwts. I gave him a guinea for them, and the next day I put them in the window, for sale. The prosecutor's landlady, a woman I knew extremely well, came and asked if there had been such a pair of buckles brought to be pledged: she gave me a very good description of them: I asked her a good many questions, whether she suspected a man or a woman? she said, she suspected a man. I asked what sort of a man; she gave me a very just description of the man that brought them, which was the prisoner. I bid her send the prosecutor to my house; when he came, he gave much the same description of the man and the buckles, as she had done before. I bid him go and find the man, and produce him to me, and I would help him to the sight of the buckles. It is customary with many, if they can but get their goods, they don't care what becomes of the thief. They found him the next day, and I was sent for. I went with the buckles in a paper in my hand: when I came there, said the prosecutor's landlord, the man is in the room, which is he? the prisoner was stooping on the table; he looked up with his hand over his face; said I, that is the man: the prisoner held up his hand, like threatening me, and swore, if I said so again, he would knock me down, and called me villain, and other bad names. I asked the prosecutor if these were his buckles, and shewed him them; the landlord and landlady said they had had them in their possession, and declared those were not the buckles; so said the prosecutor. I said, be kind enough to send for my apprentice (They accused me with changing the buckles, which I scorn upon any terms to do.)

When I came to the Feathers, in the street where my landlord lives, he went and fetched Mr. Davidson. When he came in, I heard my landlord say, that is Mr. Cook: as soon as Mr. Davidson looked at me, he said, that is Mr. Cook that I bought the buckles of; upon that, I was a little enraged; I never was in his shop in my life-time; he never bought a pair of buckles of me. They sent for a constable, and I was sent to the Compter. I do not remember my saying I knew the thief, or any such thing. The prosecutor mentioned the price of the buckles, and the money I owned him, and put them all together himself.</p>

I was attempting to pull my glove off: he said then to me, don't trifle, but make haste, or I'll blow your brains out, with an oath. Then I gave him the 2 s. and he went away, and was not far from us, when a little lad on horseback came to us (he was going towards Newington). I bid him take care how he passed that man, for he had just robbed me. He spoke to a coachman who was coming to town with a chariot; and there was a man on foot that met the prisoner, just as he went out of the road, over a hedge or gate, into a field; he robbed me in full view of the turnpike. A gentleman came on horseback; he bid the man on foot go over after the prisoner; the man went over after him, and the gentleman and his servant rode round after him, till he was taken. The prisoner walked very leisurely till he found he was pursued; then he ran.</p>
<p>Q. Had he any pistol or instrument?</p>
<p>A. Curtise. I saw only a stick; but he put his hand down to his pocket, on his left side, and held up his stick to the side of my head. When he was taken, he was carried to the turnpike-house; there he offered me my money again, if

The prisoner at the bar met the prosecutrix and I, between Newington-green, and Islington turnpike, near the pond in the road. About half way between the turnpike and Islington, I observed him coming along, but did not take any particular notice of him; when he came close to us, I went to give him way, to come by: he bid us stand. I said, What does the man mean? I have got nothing. Immediately I looked behind me, to see if any body was coming: then I looked the prisoner in the face; he said, your money; I said, I had not a half-penny: then he held up his stick, or cane, to our heads; and said, if we did not deliver our money immediately, he would blow our brains out. I said, What do you mean to have my money, whether I have any or no? He twice said, if we did not deliver, he would blow our brains out, fixing his eyes on her the second time. Then Mrs. Curtise said, she had 2 s. she would give him that: she took the 2 s. out of her pocket, and held up to him, and said, if that will content you, it is all I have. He snatched the money out of her hand, and bid us go along silent, and he went away towards Newington, and I walked after him at a little distance; there was a chariot coming along, and a man on foot in the foot way, by the side of the chariot; I walked up to the chariot; the prisoner took over a gate or bank, into a field; by that time I was at the chariot, there came a gentleman and his servant on horseback; they asked what was the matter? I said, that man in a brown coat, going along the field, had robbed us. He ordered the man on foot, named Hecock, to go over the field, after him, and he would ride round the road, and prevent his crossing again; the gentleman rode back, and ordered his servant to follow him; he saw other men, and bid them assist, and at last they took him. I did not see them take him, but am sure he is the man that stopped us. As soon as he was taken, the gentleman sent his footman for us; we went with him to the turnpike-house, at Kingsland; and as soon as he saw Mrs. Curtise, he offered her her two shillings again, and said, it was the first fact he ever committed. I saw the 2 s. in his hand; I can't say particularly his words, but he wanted to be set at liberty.</p>
<p>Q. Mention his words as well as you can.</p>
<p>M. Cadwell. He said, to be sure I have robbed you, and there was the money again, if she would be so kind as to take it.</p>

I was going from thence to Islington, just after one o'clock: about an hundred yards from Ball's-pond turnpike, I met a little boy on horseback; he shewed to me a man, and said, that man had robbed a couple of women; he was not then fifty yards from me. I was not satisfied with what the boy said; I asked where the women were: I saw them, and ran to them, and asked them; they told me the same: a gentleman and his servant came up; I told the gentleman that man had robbed the two women: the prisoner was in the field. The gentleman said, do you follow him: you may catch him before he gets out of the field, and I'll ride round, and give him a meeting. I went into the field; the prisoner crossed the first field, and came to a house they call the Rosemary-branch. I kept about 50 or 60 yards behind him; he crossed the road that leads from Rosemary-branch to Newington, and went over the bank into another field, and crossed one or two fields more, and went towards Kingsland. I was not above 10 or twelve yards behind him, when he got over the last bank.

He made no resistance, but said, I'll surrender. We took him to Kingsland turnpike: I searched him, and took a small penknife, and his cane from him. (A small cane produced); this is it: when the prosecutrix came in, he offered her 2 s. again, and begged to be let go about his business: he said, it was the first thing he ever did of that sort, and would never do so any more, if she would please to forgive him.</p>

I went after him, and saw they had taken the prisoner. They brought him to the turnpike. When the gentlewoman came, he took out two shillings and offered them to her; she refused to take it. I thought by his talk he was not in liquor then, but appeared as if he had been over night. I said, You have been drinking, my friend; he said he had been drinking pretty hard last night.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>My father lives in Petticoat-lane, White-chapel: he is a master worsted-maker. I came out of his house very much in liquor. I walked up the road and got more by the way, and was quite out of my senses. I did not know what I did. As I came near these two gentlewomen, I thought they would not give me room to pass.</p>
<p>Q. to Hecock. Did the prisoner appear to be fuddled?</p>
<p>Hecock. He looked as if he had drank a good deal over night; he was stupefied, but I did not take him to be fuddled then.</p>

If he drinks a little too much, he is as mad as one in Bedlam. When he is sober he follows his work very hard.</p>
