I cannot tell, they were on the shelf in a passage between two rooms, I had seen them within 12 months before I missed them; the tablecloth was locked in a drawer in a scrutoir in my own room; she was still my servant, and had been for four years; she ran in debt to the value of 20 l. and the creditors arrested her; when I missed the things I charged her with them; she confessed she had taken and pawned them.</p>
<p>Q. Did you make her any promise upon her confessing?</p>
<p>J. Wallard. She denied it at first, bu t upon my telling her, if she would confess, I would not hurt her, then she owned it; I found them by her direction (the coffee-pot, spoons, salt, and table-cloth produced and deposed to.)</p>

On the 28th of March I went about eleven in the night to Mr. Heath's, a fishmonger's at Temple-bar, hearing there was a great disturbance (it was the day of the election at Brentford;) while I was there Mr. Stevenson came; Mr. Manlove, who is partner with Mr. Heath, came and said he was just come from the Mansion-house, and there was a great mob there, and they had done a great deal of mischief; Mr. Stevenson and I proposed to take a walk there, to see if it was so; we went and found the report true; there was a vast number of people, some thousands; I saw several of them throw stones, and break the Mansion-house windows; among them I saw the prisoner at the bar, they were shouting, and crying out, Wilkes for ever! and such like language as that.</p>
<p>Q. What time did you get to the Mansion-house?</p>
<p>Pain. A very little after eleven; the lamps were most of them broke before I got there, and a great many windows, particularly below stairs.</p>
<p>Q. What sort of stones?</p>
<p>Pain. Such stones as they could pick up in the streets, being after the new paving was made; and there were a great number of little stones lying about; I saw stones flying may be the bigness of an egg, bigger or lesser, and pieces of brick-bats; I took particular notice of the prisoner, because I looked upon him to be a pickpocket, he had very much the appearance of one, and I think still I am not mistaken in that, from the behaviour which I saw that night; I thought it was my duty, as well as every Englishman, to endeavour to suppress it; I could not attempt to do any thing in the midst of a mob; I showed Stevenson the prisoner, and said, there is that villain, I suspect him to be a pickpocket, you see he is throwing stones; I believe we watched him near half an hour, he threw all the stones he had with him; then he went from the Mansion-house up a passage by the side of a church at the bottom of the Poultry below the Compter, there was a heap of stones, and such things lay; he loaded himself there, we followed him, and saw him come back again to the Mansion-house; he threw and broke several panes of glass on the west side the Mansion-house; I was determined never to leave him till I had taken him, I had hardly patience to forbear taking him in the midst of the mob; my neighbour Stevenson believing I should seize him, said, for God's sake, do not take him, we shall be murdered; I said, if you are afraid go home, for I will never leave him till I take him: the soldiers came, the mob stopped them; there was one more active than the rest, he threw his bayonee about, and made way; they drawed round in a ring, I and the prisoner were in the midst of them; while the soldiers were in that posture, the prisoner threw several stones, and broke several windows in the Mansion-house; my neighbour, according to my advice, and I suppose agreeable to his own inclination, left me: after the prisoner had throwed all the stones he had, then he came out, and went down the west side the Mansion-house, and picked up more stones, and throwed them up to the two pair of stairs windows, and I believe he broke most of the two pair of stairs windows that were broke on that side; I was going to take hold of him several times, but I considered the consequence of the mob, so I waited till about half an hour after twelve; he met with a young man that he knew, they talked together; I took that young man to be one of the same sort; they agreed to go home, they came from the mob a little way; I determined to take him when they got a little way from the mob: to save my own brains, I concluded to take hold of him as a pickpocket; I said, you villain, how dare you come here to pick pockets; I thought in this the mob would rather be on my side than against me; there were no body very near, nor no body assisted me; his companion made off immediately; I got the prisoner into the Poultry Compter, then he was very ready to be searched; I then said no, I do not take you up as a pickpocket, I take you up for breaking the Mansion-house windows.</p>
<p>Q. How long from first to last might you have kept your eye upon him?</p>
<p>Pain. I may say a full hour.</p>
<p>Q. When the lamps were broke how could you see?</p>
<p>Pain. They did not break the other peoples lamps, and there were candles in every window in all the houses, some out of fear, and some perhaps out of respect, the mob shouting, Wilkes for
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176805180015"/> ever! then a stone went, a number of the mob were throwing and shouting Wilkes: but I believe the prisoner broke more windows after I was there than any ten men, he was remarkable for throwing; when I got him into the inward part of the Compter, we examined his hands, and they were both of them very much soiled, as if handling dirty stones: I should not have mentioned this, had I not heard there are some women would give evidence that his hands were clean.</p>
<p>Cross examination.</p>
<p>Q. What time was it when you put him in the Compter?</p>
<p>Pain. The watch went half an hour past twelve when I came out of the Compter coming up Cheapside.</p>
<p>Q. How long was that after you came from the Mansion-house?</p>
<p>Pain. I suppose it was about a quarter of an hour, that must be the most.</p>
<p>Q. How was the prisoner dressed?</p>
<p>Pain. He had his own dark hair, a coloured handkerchief about his neck, and a ragged coat on.</p>
<p>Q. Whether you directly followed him?</p>
<p>Pain. I did, and took him between the mob and the Poultry Compter; I watched him out of the mob, and just before we got to the Poultry-gate, I went before them to see if there was any body there to assist me; I saw nobody, so I took him myself.</p>
<p>Q. Did you not stop at the Poultry-gate to watch for his coming?</p>
<p>Pain. No, I did not.</p>
<p>Q. Whether you had not been there five or six minutes watching for him, and then jumped upon him?</p>
<p>Pain. No, I had not been there half a minute.</p>
<p>Q. How near the Compter-gate did you seize him?</p>
<p>Pain. Not ten yards from it I suppose; the mob reached half way up to the gate; they were both walking together a good middling pace, I suppose at the rate of three miles and a half an hour; I was obliged to run to get before them, he was directly fronting the gate when I seized him.</p>
<p>Q. How near to it?</p>
<p>Pain. I suppose about twenty feet.</p>
<p>Q. Did he abide in one place?</p>
<p>Pain. He shifted about, he was on both sides the Mansion-house and front and all; I was sometimes on one side him, and sometimes behind him; I told my Lord Mayor's porter at the gate, I had got my eye upon a particular person, I meant the prisoner.</p>
<p>Q. Did you tell the man at the Compter the prisoner was a pickpocket?</p>
<p>Pain. No, I did not.</p>
<p>Q. Did you not say, look at his hands and see they are muddy?</p>
<p>Pain. I said they were dirty; his hands were both soiled, as if he had been handling dirty stones.</p>
<p>Q. Did any body look at his hands?</p>
<p>Pain. Nobody but the turnkey looked at them while I was there.</p>

<p>Q. Did he single out any one particular person?</p>
<p>Stevenson. He followed a person.</p>
<p>Q. How do you know that?</p>
<p>Stevenson. He turned round and said, I know a person.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see the person he mentioned throw a stone?</p>
<p>Stevenson. I can't remember no person that was there; there were pieces of tiles lying there; said Pain, you'll see if he picks them up; I went off directly, and went over to the left-hand side; there were a great many people walking up and down; said Pain, I shall not go home with you, if you are afraid you may go home, for I will not leave the person; he followed a person that went down on the left-hand side; I went home directly and left him there. He came to me the next morning and said, I have taken him; I said, how can you swear to a person among so many people, I suppose you are going to get 50 l. he said there was no reward offered.</p>
<p>Q. Whether you did not see the person Mr. Pain alluded to throw a stone?</p>

<p>Q. Did you say nothing to Mr. Pain?</p>
<p>Stevenson. I said, if I had been one of my Lord Mayor's servants at that time, I should certainly have fired at the mob.</p>
<p>Q. What time was it that you was there?</p>
<p>Stevenson. It was about 11 o'clock.</p>
<p>Q. How long did you stay there?</p>
<p>Stevenson. All the time I was there was not above 15 minutes.</p>
<p>Q. What did Mr. Pain say the man was when he came to you next morning?</p>
<p>Stevenson. He called him a pickpocket, if I remember; he said he followed him till he came to the Compter-gate, and he pushed him in; I said, how could you take him out of the mob; he said, O, I knew him of old.</p>
<p>Q. Was you and Pain in such a situation in the mob so as to converse together?</p>
<p>Stevenson. He walked before and I near him behind; we could converse occasionally.</p>

<p>Stevenson. He did.</p>
<p>Q. Did he point to him as throwing stones?</p>

<p>Q. Are you sure the prisoner is not the man that Pain pointed to as throwing stones?</p>
<p>Stevenson. I will not say he is not the young man that Pain pointed at.</p>
<p>Q. What do you believe?</p>
<p>Stevenson. Upon my oath I never saw the prisoner in my life before I saw him now in court.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see that man that Pain pointed throw stones?</p>
<p>Stevenson. Yes, I did; there were three or four throwing stones together.</p>

I saw Mr. Pain stand at the Compter-gate that Monday night; he came up to the gate and opened it, and I believe he might stay there between five and six minutes between the gates, he stood as if he waited for somebody; I remember the prisoner was brought in; I stood looking over the rail close by Mr. Pain; I was there when Mr. Pain came up first; I saw some people walking along the street; Mr. Pain went out and seized the young man by the collar.</p>
<p>Q. Was the prisoner running or walking?</p>
<p>H. Lawrence. He was walking a common pace as if going home, he was not making any noise; he was going from the Mansion-house, the windows were breaking at that time.</p>
<p>Q. What time was this?</p>
<p>H. Lawrence. I fancy this might be about 11 or after, it may be before eleven.</p>
<p>Q. Was it not past twelve?</p>
<p>H. Lawrence. I am very sure it was not, because I was going to bed when the clock struck twelve; he seized the young man in the street, and said, I have catched you now, he is a pickpocket; he said to me, shut to the gate, and I did, but I did not follow him up into the Compter.</p>
<p>Cross examination.</p>
<p>Q. How came you to be there?</p>
<p>H. Lawrence. My father has the care of the Compter.</p>
<p>Q. Whether Mr. Pain did not address himself to you, and you made some answer to him?</p>
<p>H. Lawrence. I did not hear him speak a word to any body; he ran up in a great hurry to the gate; and opened the hatch and there he stood.</p>
<p>Q. Was he there a single minute?</p>
<p>H. Lawrence. I think he was.</p>
<p>Q. Will you take upon you to swear he was there two minutes?</p>

<p>Court. It does not follow from that that she took it; there was another woman with her, did you observe either of the two women stoop to pick the money up?</p>
<p>Innis. Not that I saw, I had hold of the prisoner.</p>
<p>Q. What money had you in your pocket?</p>
<p>Innis. I had sixteen guineas and a half, a 36 s. piece, a 5 s. 3 d. and a 4 s. 6 d. I only saved four guineas in my pocket, and one I picked up, and two were brought me.</p>

<p>Innis. No, I did not.</p>
<p>Q. Did you let the other woman go without searching her?</p>
<p>Innis. The watchman searched her, but found nothing at all upon her?</p>
<p>Q. How near was the other woman to the prisoner at the time you lost your money?</p>
<p>Innis. She was close by her.</p>
<p>Q. Was any body else near you?</p>
<p>Innis. No, nobody was when they stopped me first.</p>
<p>Q. Did you search the ground carefully?</p>
<p>Innis. The two boys went back to search, but I did not.</p>
<p>Court. Perhaps all your money would have been found if you had searched there.</p>
<p>Innis. I was a great deal surprized, and thought they had had the money?</p>
<p>Q. Have you ever had reason since to believe they had your money?</p>
<p>Innis. No, this woman at the bar was the occasion of my losing my money.</p>
<p>Mr. Bland. I was coming from Bishopsgate-street at eleven o'clock that night, I was just entering into Leadenhall-market, that part that is the leather market; a gentleman who lodges with me was with me; there were a few people gathered together, curiosity prompted me to go and see what was the matter; there were two women in custody of the constable; I went with them to the watch-house, the young man showed me his breeches, and said he had been robbed of his money; there was charge given of the woman at the bar, and the other; the prisoner did not give any account of herself, she gave charge for charge; they were searched, but no money found; afterwards there was some money brought in, but I know nothing about that; I was very much surprized to find myself bound over on so strange an affair as this, because I knew I was like a chip in porridge, doing neither good nor harm.</p>
<p>The constable gave an account of his searching the prisoner and other woman, but found no money upon neither.</p>
