<p>Matthews. I am a watchman.

Then he said a man gave him the fowls at Mile-end; I asked him who that friend of his was; he said he did not know him; he fell down on his knees, and begged I would let him go.</p>

<p>Mr. Davidson. I am a pawnbroker. I think it was on Tuesday, March the 4th, the prisoner came into my shop, there was a glazier putting in a pane of glass in the door; the prisoner stood in the shop near an hour. I asked him what he wanted; he said he would tell me presently. After that I asked him again if he wanted any thing

After some time he took out this watch, (produced and deposed to by prosecutrix) and said he wanted three guineas and a half upon it. I said, is it your own; he said no, it is Mr. Burton's, a plumber in the Strand. I took it in and after he was gone, I looked out and saw him standing with some paviours near Mr. Burton's door, which gave me to believe he had told me the truth. On the Thursday in the evening I received a bill from Sir John Fielding. describing the watch; then I went to Mr. Burton, and asked him if he sent a man with such a watch to me; he said no. I said, is there such a young man lives with you; he said there was a young man lived with him, but he was gone out, and when he came in he would send for me. After that I was sent for, but neither I or my wife could be certain to him. We went to Sir John Fielding's to know where the watch was lost from; about ten minutes after came Mr. Burton's young man, who said he had found out where Mrs. Hall lives, and he would go with me to see if he was the person. When we came there, she said she had a suspicion of one Allison that had lodged there; we went and found him working in his business. The prisoner said he was very sorry, and hoped I would be favourable in my evidence.</p>

I charged her, and she was committed to the Poultry Compter; I went and confronted her with all these goods, after we had searched her box, and shewed her them; she confessed to all, and said she took them all in the shop; she did not say when, but we believe she took them from time to time; she has been an old customer.</p>

She came again on the 23d for a little white ribbon; I saw her take a piece of white silk ribbon out of the box, and put it into her pocket. I let her go out of

He had been in; there were the marks of his feet in the shop, and the glass was pushed in; he was with his back downwards; he was cut, and bleeding very much. The other prisoner is a watchman; he and the boy Harris were in company about two hours before, and two other boys with them; they went into a public-house and called for beer; the woman was afraid to draw them beer. Hencher said, what are you afraid of, do you think I will bring any bad people here; then she drawed them some beer: after that Harris pulled out some money, seemingly to me to distribute among them; the woman was frighted, and begged we would not leave her while they were in the house, her husband not being within. About one o'clock the two prisoners went out of the house and returned again; Harris came in first and sat a little time; then Hencher came in; then there was some whispering; then they went out again. After that I went out, and saw Harris in the plight I mentioned in the prosecutor's window. We got a candle; there lay his hat under the side of the window. After I took him out, we asked him how he came to do such a thing. He said, Hencher broke the place open, and told him he knew there were a number of shoes in the shop, and if he got them he would take them to his watch-box, and there they would be safe.</p>
<p>Q. Was you by when Hencher was taken?</p>
<p>Elson. I was. He said he knew nothing of it; he was in the alehouse before I went in again; he had not returned from crying the hour one above ten minutes, when I brought Harris into the house.</p>
<p>Q. How wide is the window where Harris was in?</p>
<p>Elson. I take it to be about ten inches and a half one way, and twelve the other. It was part of an old sash turned sideways; it was the upper pane that was broke; the shoes were lying on the outside, one in Harris's hat, and the other by the side of it. Harris owned it to be his hat.</p>

We asked if there were room for us all; there were Harris, I, and another. He said there were; we all crowded into his box; it being a rainy night we got a pot of purl. Hencher said he knew of a good shop to break into, and wanted Harris to get into it. Harris shook his head, but said nothing to it. Hencher said he would go round his beat and come again to us; he said there were a good many boots and shoes in it; he went out, and we with him; we went into an alehouse and had two pots of purl; then Harris and he went out to cry the beat. I heard Harris cry it. Then they came in; and afterwards Harris went out and Hencher staid in; soon after that Harris was brought in bleeding.</p>
<p>Q. What does, Harris do for a livelihood?</p>
<p>Fisher. He rides horses about; he used to come to the One Tun alehouse at the corner of Field-lane. I heard him say he got twelve shillings once by knocking the lobb.</p>

<p>Mr. Masters. The prisoner brought a coat, waistcoat, and a pair of leather breeches, and pledged them to me the 26th of March; the prosecutor came and owned them, and desired me to stop him if he came again. He came again in about three hours after for more money, and I stopt him. I asked him how he came to take his master's things; he said he did it in order to keep it up; that is, I suppose, to keep up his frolick. He was very drunk.</p>

We took them to the Compter; after that I heard them say Fowkes drew them in, he was the projector of it; and that this was the first offence they had been guilty of.
