<p>G. Foster. I will tell the truth. On the 8th of June I went to get change for a quarter guinea; they could not change it at the ale-house; the prisoner said he could change it; he took his money out, and had but a shilling and two or three halfpence; he said, My dear, I'll give you change: he had hold of my hand; he took the money out of my hand, and gave me the paper it had been in again: I said, The money is not here: the prisoner said, Yes, my dear, it is, and walked with me as far as Benjamin-street; then he spit in his hand, and ran away.

Mr. Watkins took hold of the prisoner, and took him into a public house; the prisoner at first denied knowing any thing of the matter; saying, he had no such piece, and offered to be searched; but upon farther discourse, he confessed he had taken the quarter guinea from the boy, and directed Mr. Watkins to go to the place where I stop'd him: Mr. Watkins went out, and soon returned with the quarter guinea.</p>
<p>Mr. Watkins. About the 8th of June I was in Red-lion-street; hearing a great noise about a thief, I went and took hold of the prisoner; we took him to a public house; he denied having the quarter guinea: where was a person there belonging to Bridewell, that knew him, who said he was discharg'd from there the night before: then the prisoner acknowledged he had taken it, and sent me to the place where he was stop'd; there I found it.</p>

I can't say he asked for my money. I said, Hey! Hey! what is all this? My wife said, For God's sake don't let it off; I'll give you all I have, I thought it a shame to be robbed by such a little urchin as he. (The prisoner appeared not to be above 14 or 15 years of age.) I rush'd upon him, and trip'd up his heels; he threw his hand back, and fell against the side of a house; he recovered himself, and took to his heels, with the pistol in his hand: I ran after him; my wife called, Stop thief, and I the same: a watchman met us, and took him: he was never out of my sight: the watchman took this pistol out of his pocket; ( produced in court) it was charged: he was taken to the watch-house; the constable asked him who he belonged to? he answered. What was that to him? and would give no answer.</p>

I took him before the Justice; there he would not own to any thing. After he was committed, the runner ask'd me to give him something to drink. While we were drinking, he began to talk to the boy: he told him he would take his hand-cuffs off, and he should be indulged in the prison all in his power, if he would tell the truth: at last he said he would tell him when he came to prison. No, said the runner, you had better tell me now; then he told me he had stolen two pair of leather breeches, and they were pawned in Oxford road for 9 s.

She went from my house to a person that keeps the Weavers Arms, an alehouse in Spittalfields: he having two club-boxes in his house, which were robb'd of a good deal of money, he came to me, and ask'd me if I had not lost things. This was in the month of May. Then I read him the list of things I had lost. He told me she had a pair of window-curtains in his house: I show'd him the curtains on my bed, the same of two window-curtains I had lost; he said them he had seen were the same; upon which I took a warrant against her.

Morrison told me before Justice Scott, at the Angel in Whitechapel, that she gave her two guineas in gold, and Waller answered it was but 25 s.</p>
<p>Q. Have you got your money again?</p>
<p>Glass. No, I have not got a single halfpenny. I am certain I had th is money when I went to bed; I had taken a five and threepenny piece out and chang'd it, and put the change in my shoe.</p>

<p>Morrison's Defence.</p>
<p>This man pick'd me up, and went to a public-house; he went home with me, and gave me a shilling for supper, and gave this woman a shilling: he pull'd his money out of his handkerchief, and said, I'll give you this money if you'll live along with me. He made me a present of 4 guineas and 5 s. and desired me to make the best advantage of it: he said he was going to sell his ticket, and would bring me more. I had lain with him before that.</p>
<p>Waller's Defence.</p>
<p>When they came in, she told me he was her husband; they gave me a shilling to get supper; I fetch'd in a twopenny-loaf and a pot of beer: she told me he had made her a present of the money to live along with him.</p>

The man immediately came up a second time to the coach, presented a small pistol, and said he wanted our money. Major Smith, I believe, gave him some silver, and he collected money from two of the ladies, and a green purse, with about 6 s. 6 d. or 7 s. in it, from me. Among this money were three or four sixpences. One of the ladies delivered to him a green purse, and three or four shillings in it. After that he rode back. There was nothing over his face, as well as I could see at that time of night; and I have seen him several times since. I do believe the prisoner is the man. I don't swear positively he is the man. I gave a description of him before I saw the prisoner again, and that description answer'd.</p>

<p>Q. Was it light or dark?</p>
<p>Major Smith. It was a very remarkable light evening; I believe the moon was just rising at the time; I could distinguish him or any body else; his head was close to me.</p>

<p>To his Character.</p>
<p>Mr. Beaver. I have known him near three years; he has been a gentleman's servant, but lately buys and sells horses. I have had dealings with him; he paid me honestly.</p>
<p>Mr. Kelly. I have known him about three years; I look upon him to be an honest, industrious, fair-dealing man. If he had wanted an hundred pounds, I would have lent it him.</p>
<p>Mr. Peate. I have known him sixteen or seventeen months; he is a sober, honest, industrious man, and never quarrelsome. I think within myself, he is the least capable of going on the highway of any man I know. I take him to be a timorous man.</p>
<p>Mr. Howell. I have known him between two and three years; I have had dealings with him, and never heard or saw any thing amiss by him.</p>
<p>Mr. Reves. I have known him sixteen or seventeen months; I always took him to be a very honest man.</p>
<p>Mr. Floodgate. I have known him eighteen months; he is an honest, industrious man.</p>
<p>Mr. Jones. I have known him about twelve months; I always found him just and punctual in all his dealings.</p>
<p>Mr. Carver. I have been acquainted with him upwards of twelve months, and have had dealings with him; he always behaved just and honest; I never heard any thing amiss of him in my life.</p>
<p>Mr. Webb. I have known him between two and three years; I never heard a syllable amiss of him.</p>
<p>Mr Draper. I have known him about eighteen or nineteen months; I have recommended him to sell horses; he is a very sober, honest man.</p>
<p>Mr. Stevens. I have known him more than four months; his character is that of an honest man.</p>
<p>Mrs. Elliot. I have known him going on four months, or better; he is a very honest, sober man. I never heard to the contrary.</p>
<p>Q. to Wood. How was the prisoner dress'd when you took him?</p>

<p>Q. Did you ever live in London?</p>
<p>Haley. I lived with the Earl of Macclesfield fifteen years, but was not always in town. When we were at the Lebeck's Head, the prisoner call'd for something to drink by himself, but he fell into discourse with the company; there were two other men in the room; I pull'd out my watch to see what o'clock it was; the prisoner took and twisted it out of my hand, and gave it over the table to another man; they were all strangers to me; I took out my money to pay: he took two half guineas out of my hand: I began to make a noise; two of them got away; the prisoner was going out, and I got hold of him.</p>
<p>Q. Who paid the reckoning?</p>
<p>Haley. I don't know, I paid none, nor did I call to know what was to pay; the men were all gone away: this was in a little room backwards below stairs; they went out at a door that goes into

<p>The prisoner, in his defence, said, the prosecutor went to tossing up for large sums of money with the men there, and at last laid his watch against another man's, and lost it.</p>
<p>The prosecutor declared, that there was tossing up amongst the others, but he never concerned himself in it, but wanted to be gone from them.</p>

I was servant at the Lebeck's Head at that time; the prosecutor and another young man came in some time before the prisoner: when the prisoner came in, he asked for two young men; he was shewed into the room to two young men that were there before the prosecutor came in: the prisoner call'd for pen. ink, and paper, and a gill of wine; he mixed company with them; there was not the least complaint of any thing being lost: the young man and the prisoner went out before the other men.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see them go out?</p>
<p>Pain. No; but I saw them come in again; the other men paid me the reckoning, and were gone, before they came back.</p>
<p>Q. How long might the prisoner and prosecutor be absent?</p>
<p>Pain. About eight or ten minutes; when they came back again, they asked me for the other men; I said they were gone; then the prosecutor swore an oath, and said he was robb'd of his watch and two half guineas; and took the prisoner by the sleeve, and said he had snatched them from him, and had delivered them to another man, and he would not go out of the house without his watch: then the prisoner said, Come along, and they never went into a room, but went out together.</p>
