<p>Q. Was any part of the linen drawn through the hole?</p>
<p>Watkins. I believe there was some of it through, but my master's brother took it away from the place; he is not here.</p>

<p>I was making water, and this boy (meaning the other prisoner) took and pushed my arm in through the window; I have an uncle at Lambeth; I was at the workhouse there, and I ran away from thence.</p>
<p>Pouting's defence.</p>

<p>Vigers. He said it was his own. and that he was the manufacturer of it; I suspected him, by his asking a price considerably under the value; he allowed it for 8 s. a yard; it was worth more; if it was taken on my judgement, I would have given three or four shillings a yard more; he discovered to me he had no knowledge of the business, so as to manufacture the cloth, by the discourse I had with him; this also increased my suspicion; when before the Justice, he did acknowledge he went in to Mrs. Vanderplank's house on the Saturday evening, and took out his cloth.</p>

<p>Mr. Bruin. On the 4th of February the prisoner came to my shop with this table-spoon (producing one.) I looked at it and said, if I did not know you, I would stop you; go and fetch the owner; she went and brought a woman, who said, it was not her own property; then I sent her about her business; after that, I went to the prosecutrix's house, and shewed her the spoon; the prisoner came in at the same time, and upon being charged with it, owned she did take it.</p>

<p>Mr. Bruin. I believe I can account for what the prisoner means in her defence; Mr. Stanton was not for prosecuting her if he could have helped it; I said, you must go before a magistrate, and if the prisoner is discharged, then she must have the spoon; if that is the case, then they said they were not willing to that; when they came before Justice Girdler, Mrs. Stanton would not swear to the spoon; then the Justice said to her, she was liable to a prosecution for a false imprisonment; then she said she would swear to the spoon; then the brother-in-law said he would pay for the spoon, in case she does not return it, but there was no money passed.</p>

<p>Norbury. I went into the alley, fearing they should see me, and make me go along with them; and they were looking one way to see if the watchman came, and I came the other way?</p>

<p>Morris. She was a widow, they were married on the 26th of August last, and the marriage was entered according to act of a parliment, I put my name down as a witness.</p>
<p>Q. Where did she live?</p>
<p>Morris. She lived near the church, in Church-court, opposite the sign of the Crown. I think I have heard her say she lived there 12 years. After the wedding we went to Chelsea, and came back and dined at my house; then he, my wife and his wife, went to Sadler's-wells together.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I married my first wife in the neighbourhood of St. John's-street where Mr. Morris lives, and I have not lived with her 3 years; I was credibly informed she was dead, or I had never carried my wife into that neighbourhood.</p>
<p>Q. to Morris. Did the prisoner live in St. John's-street as a housekeeper?</p>
<p>Morris. No, he never did.</p>
<p>Q. Did he pass for a married man or a batchelor?</p>
<p>Morris. He past for a batchelor; I remember he did once tell me he had had a wife, but she was dead.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Mr. Morris has seen my first wife several times in that neighbourhood.</p>
<p>Morris. If I have seen her, I did not know that she was his wife.</p>

I was a little in liquor; I can prove I had letters when I was at Hull in Yorkshire that she was dead, and I came to London directly, but did not give myself a great deal of trouble about her; after that I heard she died in Ireland.</p>
<p>For the prisoner</p>
<p>John. I knew the prisoner in staff, and westminster I saw him at Oxford races.</p>
<p>Q. How come you there?</p>
<p>Casper. I deal in the country with goods; he was telling me his wife was dead; I never know he was married again till I came to London this last time, but I heard several people that travel with goods say he was married again.</p>

<p>Wallis. From out of the kitchen, where the prisoner and his companion were drinking. On the Monday following, between nine and ten at night, a man came and asked my wife if she had not lost such things; she said she had: he said to me, if I would go along with him, he would help me to the sight of the man that took them: I did not know but he was one of their gang (being a stranger) and might rob me at that time; I would not go; he left directions where the place was, and that the man's name was Young. I went the next morning to justice Fielding, and got a search-warrant and a constable, and went and found the prisoner in bed; I asked him if his name was Young; he said no, Young had dressed himself and gone out; I looked about the room; there stood my two tin cannisters in the closet; I charged him with taking them; he said he knew nothing about them; we took him before Sir
