<p>Q. What time of the day was this?</p>
<p>S. Shotton. This was between nine and ten in the morning; when I fell down, the prisoner flung the till down in the street, this was about three doors from my house; I cannot say what money was in the till, but I know there was more than 18 d.</p>

<p>M. Brickinshaw. I did; I did not know what to do, he cursed and swore enough to fright me out of my wits; he told me if I called out, people would hear me; it was by his persuasion I did not call out.</p>
<p>Q. How long was it between the first and second time?</p>
<p>M. Brickinshaw. It might be a quarter of an hour or more.</p>
<p>Q. How came you to tell your mistress of this?</p>
<p>M. Brickinshaw. When the people were gone away, one Mr. Banks, a customer, was the last in the house; going out he attempted to kiss me, I would not let him; my mistress said to me, what makes you look so scornful; then after he was gone I told her of it.</p>
<p>Q. Have you not made declaration, that you should not have told it to your master or mistress, had they not taxed you with staying out so long?</p>
<p>M. Brickinshaw. No, I never did say so.</p>
<p>Q. Have you not declared you would not have prosecuted, had it not been for your master and mistress?</p>
<p>M. Brickinshaw. No, I never did.</p>
<p>Q. Have you not been to see the prisoner since he was in confinement?</p>
<p>M. Brickinshaw. I went to him yesterday morning in prison.</p>
<p>Q. How came you to go?</p>
<p>M. Brickinshaw. He sent for me, and that he wanted to speak to me.</p>
<p>Q. Did any body go with you?</p>
<p>M. Brickinshaw. No.</p>
<p>Court. Were there people in the room with him?</p>
<p>M. Brickinshaw. There were.</p>
<p>Court. Upon your oath tell what passed between you and him.</p>
<p>M. Brickinshaw. He said to me, will you swear my life away; and said if I would take what money he offered me I should have it.</p>
<p>Q. What did he offer you?</p>
<p>M. Brickinshaw. He offered me five guineas.</p>
<p>Q. Had he the money in his hand?</p>
<p>M. Brickinshaw. No, he said it should be put into a person's hand for me.</p>
<p>Q. Was any thing else said?</p>
<p>M. Brickinshaw. He said he would have me if I would have him, and he would use me well; as to having him, I said I never will.</p>
<p>Q. Did you not say you was afraid of marrying him, on the account of having sworn against him?</p>
<p>M. Brickinshaw. No, I did not.</p>
<p>Q. Did you or did you not at that time say, you never intended to hurt a hair of his head, and hoped you should not?</p>
<p>M. Brickinshaw. No, I never did; he said he hoped I would not take his life away; I told him I would not spare him an inch, if I knew it.</p>

<interp inst="t17680413-30-person275" type="gender" value="male"/> </persName> . I am master to the young woman; I first heard of her being ill used by the prisoner at almost ten o'clock that night; she confessed, as soon as the house was clear, what had happened; I had sent her to Mrs. Bevan's with beer, between seven and eight I believe in the evening; I believe she might be out half an hour or three quarters; when she came back, we asked her where she had been so long; she made some little slow answer, I think she said she could not readily find the place; as soon as the company was all gone out of the house but me and my wife, while I went into the cellar she fell a crying, and told my wife what had happened; when I came up I was informed of it, she then gave us the same account as she has now.</p>
<p>Q. Did she say he had twice lain with her?</p>
<p>Roberts. She did, that he threw her down in both the lanes, and lay with her.</p>
<p>Q. Are there any houses in the lanes?</p>
<p>Roberts. No, there are not, and in the night-time there are very few people go through them; the prisoner lives next door to me.</p>
<p>Q. How long has the girl lived with you?</p>
<p>Roberts. A little above half a year.</p>
<p>Q. Upon your oath, during the time she has lived with you, have you perceived any thing loose in her behaviour, have you any reason to suspect she would suffer people to lie with her?</p>
<p>Roberts. No, I never had a suspicion of her, I look upon her to be a sober honest girl as any is; I never believed she would condescend to any body.</p>
<p>Q. Have you any reason to believe this man at the bar used any familiarity with her, so as to kiss her?</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176804130018"/>Roberts. No, I never had any reason to believe it in my life.</p>
<p>Q. Had he used to come to your house often?</p>
<p>Roberts. He has come once or twice a day sometimes; I never saw nothing between them.</p>
<p>Q. Were there any quarrel between you and him?</p>
<p>Roberts. No, I never had any quarrel with him or his master.</p>
<p>Q. Did you advise the girl to prosecute?</p>
<p>Roberts. It was her own doing; she went in the morning of her own will for the warrant, I did not discourage her in doing it; she was willing and desirous to prosecute him; if she had not of her own accord, I should have advised her to do it; I should not have been willing to have put up with them things in my house.</p>
<p>Q. Did not you threaten her if she did not prosecute?</p>
<p>Roberts. No, I did not.</p>

<interp inst="t17680413-30-person276" type="gender" value="male"/> </persName> . I am a surgeon, and live at Hammersmith; I was sent for to the Justice, the day following the act, to look at this young girl; I searched her, I did not see any particular act of violence; there was some little laceration, and some hemorrhage, that might be from coition, this I believe proceeded from the laceration; I believe he had entered the vagina; I believe from the straitness of the passage, and the violence that had been used, the hemorrhage might ensue.</p>
<p>Q. Could these appearances be on a woman that had been lain with before?</p>
<p>Harvest. They might; we could not expect to see any great marks of violence upon a person of her age.</p>
<p>Q. May not the hymen be broke of a woman that has not been lain with?</p>
<p>Harvest. I believe it may, and often has been, by a great many circumstances.</p>
<p>Q. Supposing that had been broke, could you discover whether it had been lately, or of any time standing before?</p>
<p>Harvest. I believe that could not be discovered, the passage was very small; I really believe she had not been lain with by any man before; I was desired to examine the prisoner before the Justice, he had got the lues upon him to a high degree.</p>
<p>Q. Had the girl any appearance of it?</p>
<p>Harvest. No, she had not; I believe he has had the disease upon him a considerable time; I have some reason to think, by taking medicines, in some measure the violence was taken off, it was quite a pox; he had had a gonorrhoea before, but that was entirely stopt, it was only the external virus that he complained of; some time a man may have a lues upon him, and not communicate the disease; it might, or it might not.</p>

<p>Q. You have heard the account the other surgeon has given?</p>
<p>Daniel. I have; he has given the just account, as to the prisoner and the girl; the girl made some little complaint after that, and did not walk so well as usual; I gave her some medicine, by way of prevention, but there was no appearance that the distemper had communicated.</p>
<p>Prisoner's defence.</p>
<p>Betwixt seven and eight I met with the girl, with a pot of beer; she asked where the person lived; I said I did not know: she said, if you will come with me I'll come home with you; I went with her, and desired her to enquire the house at the farrier's shop; we walked together; when we came to the end of the lane, I asked her to come down the lane; when we came down the lane, I asked her to do so and so; she said I should not till we came to the corner; I said this is the best place; I laid her down, she never said a word against it, and after that I shook the dust off her gown and cloak; when we came to another place, I laid her down again, and did the same; she never said a word, nor cried; there was a person ran by, who it was I do not know; here is another person here, that was concerned with her as well as I.</p>

<p>Q. Did she tell you she would?</p>

<p>Cumerford. She did not.</p>
<p>Q. Why did not you offer her some money?</p>
<p>Cumerford. I had none.</p>
<p>Q. Was this application to her from humanity, or by the desire of the prisoner?</p>
<p>Cumerford. No, I had not seen him; I wanted to see if she was willing to make it up, that other people might do it.</p>
<p>Q. Did she appear willing?</p>

<p>Q. Why did you not ask her how much money she would take?</p>
<p>Cumerford. I did not think about making it up, I did not ask her any such thing; and another thing was, I had no money.</p>
<p>Q. to Breckinshaw. What conversation passed between you and this witness, in regard to this affair?</p>
<p>M. Brickinshaw. I never saw this man till he came to our house the day of the election, he was drinking there; I was not very well, and could not go down into the cellar to draw any beer all the day, I sat in the kitchen with my cloak on; this man was in the parlour, he asked where Sheridan was, that was all that past.</p>
<p>Q. Upon your oath?</p>
<p>M. Brickinshaw. Yes, upon my oath.</p>
<p>Q. Did you say to him, you did not desire to hurt a hair of the prisoner's head?</p>
<p>M. Brickinshaw. No, I did not; I went into the room where he was but once all the time he was there.</p>
