<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176812070003"/> I came into the yard, I saw one of the prisoners standing at the prosecutor's door; I call'd George, thinking it had been my bed-fellow. Then I walked on towards the door; when I came within ten yards, I call'd George again, then the man came from the door, and the other out of the house: they had each things under their arms. I past by them, and took no notice of them, and let them pass me, there being nobody in the yard to help me. They went towards the Foundling-hospital, I went and saw the door open, I shut it, and went after the prisoners: I watched them down as far as the Hospital; I could not see any body to assist me there. I came back, thinking they would come again, as they had left the door open; I got behind a piece of wood, and saw them come and cross over and down the yard; then I went and got assistance; I met them coming out of the yard, I told the watchmen they were the men; they had been at the house and found the door fast, and were coming back.</p>
<p>Q. How did they get in the first time?</p>
<p>Kelsey. That I do not know. I am sure these prisoners are the men; I had fight of them three times; they were searched, and four keys found upon one of them, I cannot say which: I tried them with the lock, but neither of them would open it: After that we went to look for the goods, and found them tied up in a table-cloth, hanging on a tree in the Foundling-field.

<p>Burton's Defence.</p>
<p>I was after some money which my master owed me, and I owed this man (meaning his fellow prisoner); not finding, my master at the Blue Lion, Gray's-inn-lane, I went to go the nearest way home by the Foundling hospital, Fitzpatrick staid at the gate-way to make water, and I stood against the rails to wait for him: just as he had done, there came these people and laid hold of us, and charged us with taking some things. I never was down below the gate-way, in Ormond-yard, in my life.</p>
<p>Fitzpatrick's Defence.</p>
<p>He owed me some money, and I was in want, and went along with him for it. I live by Tichfield-street. Burton is a bricklayer, and I am his labourer.</p>

<p>Q. What was your reason for that?</p>
<p>Cliff. Because, Bird would not have meddled with it, had he not thought it came from some distance off. Bird desired to look at it. He took us into a back room, and said he had not a great deal of money in the house; but he would lend him a guinea till it could be sold; then he would give him the remainder of the money.

<p>Q. How long had you been absent from them?</p>
<p>Wane. Not a quarter of an hour. I went to Justice Fielding, and had a constable, and we took the prisoner up.</p>
<p>Q. How came you to put your money in your waistcoat pocket?</p>
<p>Wane. I generally do when I have been drinking, because sometimes the others have none, and they may want to borrow; then I show them I have none.</p>

<p>I was sitting by my own fire, the other woman asked him if he would give her any thing to drink; he went out and fetched some liquor: he was gone near half an hour. She went away, then he came in again and said he was robbed, and that I was one of the women.</p>

On the 18th of October last, I was alarmed about three in the morning; our bell rang, we lissened to know what was the meaning; I heard a person run up stairs. Mr. Reynoldson, that lodges in our house, call'd, and said, he believed there were thieves in the house; he came down into my chamber and took the keys, and went down stairs. I followed him immediately after;
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176812070008"/> my husband was ill in bed; and is so ill now he cannot attend the Court. When I came into the parlour, I found the flap of the cellar window was torn up, and a padlock torn from the cellar door, that opens into the street upon the cellar stairs; the door shuts on the flap, and was padlock'd on the inside. There is a window seat like in the parlour, which was a head-way front, the top of that was wrench'd off, and the top of it lay upon the ground; by that means a passage was opened into the parlour, close to the bureau where our goods were locked up: I locked them up myself, about eleven o'clock over night; I am always the last up, and know the cellar door and flap were safe at that time. The bureau is a bureau and book-case, but instead of books there are twenty-four drawers that hold our work: there is an iron bar that goes cross and fastens the two doors, and is padlocked. The padlock I found torn to pieces, and the bar torn off; the shutter taken down, and the flap of the bureau had the lock torn off, the keys were in there; by which they unlocked the top where the other drawers were; there was a lock to the top besides the bar; the middle drawer the lock was broke off. There were three locks of the buffet broke also, and a case of tea-spoons moved out and put into a chair; but we believe, by the alarm of the bell, the thief made off. The next day I observed there were some drops of wax in the bureau: the goods mentioned in the indictment were taken away; some we have found again, but not all, nor near all. I immediately had warnings dispersed about, from Goldsmiths hall, and went to Sir

I heard nothing of them till Mr. Wintle came to me, on the 21st of November, and told me, he believed he had some of my goods, he shewed them to us, and we owned them; he said, they were offered to him to sell, by one Mr. Davis in the Minories; Mr. Davis's son came with him: we asked him how he came by them: the son said, a gentleman, that his father knew very well, that his father had them of; and he was to call on his father about three o'clock; he had left them to see whether he liked them: Mr. Wintle, seeing Mr. Knight's seal, thought proper to stop them. There were fifteen pair of gold buttons, and seven pair of garnet ear-rings. Mr. Wintle and Mr. Peirce, a friend of ours, that happened to be at our house, went to see if they could light of the man that brought them to Mr. Davis's and between three and four o'clock, the same day, I was sent for to Sir

Sir John granted a search-warrant. I went with three of his people; and a gentleman that lives behind the Change, that had been robbed, to search the prisoner's house, No. 5, in Swan-street, in the Minories: we found the prisoner's wife and her sister, and a nurse; at going in the nurse took down a watch that was hanging up, and clapped it into her pocket; one of Sir John's men insisted upon her pulling it out; and upon my examining it, I found a gold seal of mine hanging to it; we asked for the keys; we were answered, they had none. So Sir John's people broke the locks. In the bureau we found several of my rings, buckles, ear-rings, buttons, and several things of mine: some we found in a chest of drawers.</p>
<p>Q. How can you swear to the goods?</p>
<p>A. Knight. I have been in the business near twenty years, and my husband has been very ill for twelve months: I have attended the business more than he laterly: and there are marks upon many of the things of my making; by which I know how to sell them, We found great many things at the prisoner's house besides mine, an iron crow, two chisels, a dark lanthorn, some wax lights, and a particular gimblet. We found a great quantity of silks, plate, china, and other things belonging to other people; we brought all to Sir

Then the prisoner was called in to be examined; he would make no other answer, but that he bought the things in the street, Sir John ordered him to Newgate; he returned back again, and wanted to be admitted an evidence; and said, he would make very great discoveries. Sir John said, he was an old offender, and would not admit him. (The padlock produced, broke.) Perhaps, when the iron tools come to be produced, very likely, the Court may judge who did the mischief.</p>
<p>Q. What goods of your own did you find at the prisoner's house?</p>
<p>A. Knight. There were a pair of knee buckles, which were taken out of his knees. The other things as follows, a pair of three drop cluster garnet ear-rings, in gold; a pair of single drop garnet ear-rings, in silver; six pair of fancy ear-rings and cases in silver; a silver girdle buckle; a pair of crystal buckles, in silver; a pair of topazes; a pair of children's stone buckles; a pair of knee buckles; a stone shoe buckle; a child's silver buckle; a pair of garnet shoe buckle in silver, gilt; a pair of crystal buckles; a pair of cluster garnet buttons, in gold; six pair of buttons and

( Produced in court.) I can swear to all these.</p>

<p>A. Knight. I inquired if that was Mr. Martin's lodging, his wife said it was.</p>
<p>Q. How do you know it was his wife?</p>
<p>A. Knight. She told me she was; and that her certificate was in Sir John Fielding's hands, among the papers that were brought there. We asked her if she had any more rooms than that, she said no. But afterwards she said there were more.</p>
<p>Q. What kind of marks were on the buckles?</p>
<p>A. Knight. The marks are scratched with a point of a file. (She takes up a buckle.) I have the fellow to this in my pocket. Please to examine this knee buckle; which is one I had out of the prisoner's breeches knee. You will find out felling mark, H. I. upon it. (The bench and jury examine and find it so.)

We both went down together, and opened the street door, and went into the street. There we found the cellar window open, upon which the apprentice put the flap of the window over it. We went in, and shut the door, and went down into the cellar, and from thence into the kitchen, and from thence into the parlour, where we found the seat of the window broke open. Mr. and Mrs. Knight heard us go down. She came down. We found the desk and book-case open, in the parlour; and the drawers open, and most of the things gone: upon which we went to the beaufet, and found that open. There were some little things lying in an easy-chair by it, ready to be taken away. I did not go to bed till near one o'clock that morning.

I went, and another gentleman with me to Mr. Davis's. I asked him who he had the goods off? He said they were a neighbour's of his, who had left them to know the value of them, and would call again for them.

Pray what do you ask for them? Said he, I must have nine guineas for them. I said, Sir, they will not do for me, for I am so ill I cannot look at them. He said, well, what time shall you be back from 'Change? I will leave them, and call again for either the money or my goods, by two, or a quarter after. He left me.

My son had taken the goods, and carried them to Mr. Wintle. Mr. Wintle, and another man, and my son, came to me. Mr. Wintle called me out, and said, here are some goods which your son brought me to sell, which belong to a workman of mine, whose house has been broke open; and I hope you will give me an account how you came by them. I said, sir, do not be uneasy about them, I have not bought them; but the gentleman left them, and is to be at my house by two or a quarter after, for either the money or the goods. He said, do you know the gentleman? Said I, yes, sir; I see him every day, at the Bank Coffee-house. Said he, I am afraid he will not come for the goods. Said I, I will warrant you, the man will come. Mr. Wintle had the goods in his pocket at the time. I said, do you and the other gentleman come to my house, and make no noise, but sit in my parlour, and you will see the gentleman come according to his time. We went to my house, and in about half an hour after two o'clock, the prisoner came. Then I said to Mr. Wintle, please to give me the goods. I took and opened them upon the counter, and said, here sir, is your goods, they do not suit me. The prisoner said, pray, sir, why do not they suit you?

<p>Q. When was this?</p>
<p>Webb. This was about ten weeks ago. I set them down at the end of the Minories, at the end of Swan-Street, betwixt one and two o'clock in the morning. A gentleman said, Mr. Martin, a good night to you. There were several things in the coach; one in particular was this iron crow; (taking the crow in his hand.) I am certain it was this crow. There was also something that rattled; whether it was brass or silver, I know not. There were two men came with them in to the coach, but they parted with them in Cheapside. I carried the prisoner five times within a fortnight. I carried him twice from Blackwall: I cannot be sure he was one of them in the coach, the first time; but I carried such things as these (meaning the crow and chisels) and three men, to No. 5, in Swan-Street, in the Minories: I know he was one of them the second time. I delivered the crow to a woman at No. 5. They had bundles with them.</p>
<p>Q. Where do you live?</p>
<p>Webb. I live at Stepney.</p>
<p>Q. How came you in Cheapside at that time of the night?</p>
<p>Webb. I was going home, and somebody called Coach!</p>
<p>Cross Examination.</p>
<p>Q. Did you not suspect them?</p>
<p>Webb. I suspected them; and said I suspected they had got run goods; and I was afraid of losing my coach and horses.</p>

<p>I am a foreigner: I met two or three friends; they told me they were going to Dunkirk; they said they would give me a premium, and leave some things in my hands if I would advance them a sum of money. All these goods, and what were found at my lodgings, were deposited in my hands for a sum of money that I lent them. I am innocent of the affair.</p>

I know nothing of any things they had with them: I was in the house when the people came with the search-warrant.</p>
<p>Q. Do you recollect your taking the watch down which hung up, and putting it in your pocket?</p>
<p>G. Mather. I did not put it in my pocket, I took it for fear it should be broke; the gentleman said, where is it? I said, here it is, and said, there it is, on the shelf. I was thinking of the flusteration people are in. I had heard them say the glass had been broke twice before, made me take it and put it on the mantle-piece.</p>

He went in and sat down, and bid us look at his arm, he had a hurt on it. He would have some supper. He gave Piggot money, to get two rabbits, for the Sunday's dinner; he asked me if I liked a duck, and said he would stay all the next day. He was much in liquor. About two o'clock he went to bed, and I with him. He gave me three guineas, in a paper, and bid me take care of them. He said he was about taking a public house, and asked me if I would live with him, saying, he had no wife. I said I should like it very well: the soldier's wife came in the night, and said, her husband would not let her live there any longer; after I got out of bed, the soldier went to bed to him: in the morning, I went to the public house, the gentleman was there, said he, I want the woman; I said, I am she; said he, I have lost five guineas; I said, I took none; he sent for a constable, and I was taken to the round-house. They took two guineas from me. I thought as he gave it me, I might do what I pleased with it.</p>

<p>Reeves. He worked at Isleworth three quarters of a year. I heard of her again, on Monday the 14th. I had got some hand bills printed, and I took some to Kingston fair.

He told me he took the mare out of Mr. Lucy's field, adjoining to Mr. Reeves's field.

<p>Q. What time of the day was this?</p>
<p>Mackinally. I believe it was about four o'clock. They got me into the bar-room; there were two other men in the bar-room when I went in; they were gambling. One of them said he would lay an hundred pounds, about hiding under a hat: he would guess three times out of four, if money was put under the hat. Then Smith, and the man that came in with him, said, they would play with him for a pot of hot, and a shilling; they threw down a shilling each, and I put down a shilling; we won it: then one said, how much money have you got? one said, I have so much, and another, so much: then the prisoner said, we will all have an hundred pounds each, before we leave the house. I was not willing to let them know how much I had, but they fell a swearing, and asked me what I was afraid of? then I put my hand in my pocket, and pulled out ten guineas; the prisoner told me to put it into his hat; they said they would put down the same; that is, all that were in the room, were to put down the same; then they asked me, i f I had any more? I then put eight guineas more into the hat; they all said, they would put down the same quantity.</p>
<p>Q. For what purpose were they to put it down?</p>
<p>Mackinally. For gambling. One of the other men said, neither of us was worth so much money.</p>
<p>Q. Was there any money in the hat before you put in your's?</p>
<p>Mackinally. No, there was not. The prisoner and Smith said, if I could show so much money, they could get a hundred pounds apiece, before they left the house.</p>
<p>Q. How much money was you to show?</p>
<p>Mackinally. They said, if among us all we could show twenty guineas, we should get the money before we went out of the house; and they said, they would put as much in as I did.</p>
<p>Q. Which of them said they should get an hundred pounds?</p>
<p>Mackinally. There were only Smith, the prisoner, and the other three; it was the prisoner, Smith, and one of the other, that said we should be sure of an hundred pounds each.
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176812070017"/> Then the other man, he that came in with Simpson and Smith, put an halfpenny under another hat. I discovered the villainy, and saw what they were about, and that neither of them would put in any money; I got up, leaned over the table, and took hold of the hat in the prisoner's hand, where my money was; and, at the same time, Smith catched hold of my collar, and dragged the hat out of my hand. I said, you are all a parcel of villains, I see what you are about, you shall not have my money. The prisoner handed the hat to the other man that was pretending to gamble, and, as he was handing it to him, he put in his hand, and took out a guinea; I took hold of his hand, got it out, and put it into my pocket: they then all got up, and collar'd me, threatned me, and hauled me back, and let the man get out of the house with my money; two had hold of me before, and two behind. I saw the man take it out of the hat, put it in his pocket, and go away with it: I never got a farthing of it again; I never saw the man before, nor after he had the money. The landlord of the house hearing a noise, came, the prisoner was standing before me, and would not let me go out; but when the landlord came, I ran out, and fetched the man back to the door; they then all got round me again, brought me into the room, and insisted I should pay the reckoning; the man then ran away: I told them I had no more than a shilling, and threw it down on the table. I was afraid of my life.</p>
<p>Q. How come these men to know you had so much money in your pocket?</p>
<p>Mackinally. I do not know. The prisoner and Smith used to come to the house where I live; he was acquainted with the man of the house; he knew I had money. I was paid off from his Majesty's sloop the Ferret. They all threatned me after I had paid the reckoning. When the prisoner and I were left, he said, I will go along with you, you will get every farthing of your money again, never fear; he swore, d - n his blood, he would get it all again, that he knew the man; (they called the man that had it 'Squire Johnson) he said he would bring me to where he lived, and said he was a rich man. He brought me to a house, and asked for 'Squire Johnson; the people said, they knew no such man. Then he brought me to another house, there was no such person there. Then he brought me back, and said, perhaps he may be there again; he was not there. Then we came away; and I went into a house as we came through Golden-lane, to enquire for a person: when I came out the prisoner was gone, and I never saw him after, till he was taken up, which was three or four days ago. I got a warrant for an assault, thinking to get my money again. Smith was bailed out.</p>
<p>Cross Examination.</p>
<p>Q. Was not they gaming when you went in?</p>
<p>Mackinally. No.</p>
<p>Q. Was not the ten guineas put down for a stake?</p>
<p>Mackinally. Yes, but I saw they did not put down theirs; I seeing their roguery, wanted mine again.</p>
<p>Q. Was not the money declared to be won?</p>
<p>Mackinally. No body won at all, there was no declaration who had won; they all said, that man should have the money, after he had taken it away; they forcibly took the money from me, they did not win it.</p>
<p>Q. Whether that guinea was not thrown down by Johnson, to be spent?</p>
<p>Mackinally. No, it was not.</p>
<p>Q. How came you to take the prisoner up for an assault?</p>
<p>Mackinally. I did that, thinking they would return me my money; I was advised to do it.</p>
<p>Q. Did you not tell the Justice they had been playing with you?</p>
<p>Mackinally. No.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>We had been drinking plentifully that morning. They had a bottle of gin, they asked me if I would have a dram; said I, I will be a quartern, and we will have a glass together; I sent for it. His wife said, are you going towards Bartholomew-Close? I went and fetched a child's skirt for them to do. They wanted me to stay and dine, I said I could not; said he, then come after dinner, and we will take a walk in the fields. I went, we were both in liquor; as we went along, said he, we will go in here and have some slip; there sat two men and a young gentleman; I never saw them before with my eyes. Smith was going over Moor-fields; said he, I will go with you. The prosecutor would go into the room where these gentlemen were; they were drinking rum and water; I said, let us keep our own company, that is best: he would go in there, we had two pints; after that he said we will have a pipe of tobacco; said I, I must get home; said he, you may stay a little
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176812070018"/> bit; I said, I will stay half an hour, with all my heart. They were talking about marrying a girl with a good deal of money; he said, he was just married, but had no money with her. They began to talk of gaming; they tossed up for a shilling, in punch; after that, for another: then we tossed up for five or six shillings, he and I won it; come, said he, will you toss for any more? said I, do not go to gambling, it does not look well; said the other man to him, I will toss with you for half a guinea, and pulled out a guinea; he won that guinea; the young man went out and left his guinea. Said Mackinally, we will have that among us. When the young gentleman came in, he said, where is my guinea? said I, it is safe enough, I have put it in my box; said Mackinally, what did you tell him for? Then they goes to gaming for ten guineas; he said, he would put it in no body's hands but mine, because he knew me; I laid it down upon the table, and would have no connection with it. Said he, this man has money enough, we can have some before we go: I said, you may do as you please; said he, you shall hold it; so I did; the gentleman put his money in my other hand: the gentleman won the ten guineas. Said Mackinally, I do not mind it, I shall win it again; said I, I will go and leave you; will you? said he; I said I will. The gentleman put down 10 guineas again, and Mackinally put down eight; I told it over, and said, he has put down ten, and here are but eight: I took out one guinea, and he took it out of my hand; I said, here is now but seven: he lost that; then I said, this is your own fault. He began to rave and tear, ready to knock my head off; I said, it is your fault. Said I, I shall drink none of your losings, I have some drink of my own; said he, d - n it, I can go home and get some more; said I, do not go home alone, I will go with you; on that he got up and said, G - d d - n him, I can lick him well, and take my money again; said I, do not go to fight: they went out, and were going to fight, and I persuaded him not to fight; said he, Simpson, I do not value my money, if I can but lick him well; the man was gone. I went to every house with Mackinally going home, to see if I could find him.</p>

<p>Q. Mention her own words as near as you can.</p>
<p>Carpenter. She swore I will see you, or you shall see me; I believe she said both: she went round to the end of his chamber, which was out of my sight; I apprehend to that window where his bed-chamber was: I heard a window immediately break, as though somebody struck it with their hand; I heard the glass as plain as ever I did any thing in my life; after that she came away, swearing that he should see her in the morning. I saw her come from that part and go out of the Inn: she went towards the gate for Chancery-lane.</p>
<p>Q. Can you tell what woman that was?</p>
<p>Carpenter. I could not be particular as to the woman, I could not distinguish her face; I really do not know whether it was the prisoner or not. I went to bed, and the next morning I heard this accident had happened; which alarmed me very much.</p>

<p>Q. Where is Weeden-street?</p>
<p>Sowens. That is a little street that comes into Chancery-lane. I said, who calls watch? I do, said Mr. Pimlot, follow me. I followed him into Chancery lane; she cross'd the way towards Simonds's Inn coffee house, which is at the corner of Simonds's Inn; he was alone at a little distance; I saw a woman upon a loitering order, she staid a little; he said, Watch, take charge of that woman, it was the prisoner: she was standing at a small distance; the words were scarce out of his mouth, before she flew to him with her right hand, and gave him a push under his left breast.</p>
<p>Q. How far distance was she before she flew to him?</p>
<p>Sowens. She was about five or six yards distance from him; I seized her right hand, and said, you strike, madam, you break the king's peace, I'll take you to the watch-house; I took hold of her, she said, for God's sake do not squeeze me so hard, I will go with you. The deceased turned round to the left, and said, Here, watchman, take this, delivering to me this knife. (Producing a small clas penknife, the blade about two inches long, with a sharp point, with some appearance of blood upon it.) He proceeded to the watch-house, and I followed him close with the woman.</p>
<p>Q. How far distance from the watch-house, when she gave him that push?</p>
<p>Sowens. It was betwixt eighty and ninety yards. I had the woman by the left arm, when I came up to the watch-house, I said to the beadle, Sir, here is a charge; that gentleman has charged this woman. I then saw the blade of the penknife was partly all over bloody, fresh blood. Sir, said I, here is a knife, the beadle took it, and laid it on the mantlepiece. The deceased went across the room, about four or five yards, and set down in the constable's chair, and pulled up his cloaths, and laid his belly all naked; there I saw a wound plain enough on his left side. He never said a word as I heard, after he said (Here, watchman, take this) he flung his cloaths open and leaned his head; his shirt had a very deep bosom, that also was bloody; the blood was fuming out of the wound as new beer out of a bottle: the prisoner clapt her hands together, and said, Oh, Mr. Wilson! it was I that did it, it was I that did it! And I think she said, send for a surgeon. Then I imediately went for Mr. Minors, the surgeon; two of his people came. When they came, he was dead; they came in less than a quarter of an hour; to the best of my knowledge, that was some minutes before two o'clock. Then the prisoner was sent to Clerkenwell New-Prison; the constable, Mr. Robinson, went with me. At the prison-gate, he got out of the coach, in order to have the door open. I said to her as we were in the coach, Madam, was it before the watch was called or after, that this rash action was committed? She held up her hands, Oh after, said she.</p>

<p>Court. Begin where the watchman said, I have got a charge.</p>
<p>Wilson. I was in the watch-house alone, the door was half open when he spoke; I threw the door open immediately; there I saw the deceased and the watchman, with the prisoner under his arm; he said, that gentleman charges this woman; upon this the deceased went across the room, seemingly as if nothing ailed him; I took the woman by the arm, and set her down on a bench on the other side. Said the watchman, the gentleman gave me this knife. I clapt it down on the mantlepiece; I turned round with a design to ask the gentleman, what the woman had done; there, to my great surprize, I saw he had opened his breast; I saw the wound. Lord have mercy, said I; what have you done? get a surgeon: Oh, said she, get a surgeon. Mr. Wilson, I did it. He had a deep bosom to his shirt, deep enough to shew the wound; it was bleeding. I did not examine the shirt, but I saw a hole in his coat.</p>
<p>Q. What sort of a wound was it?</p>
<p>Wilson. It was a wound just as if a pig had been stuck. It appeared in a different shape, when the blood was coming out than what it did after he was dead: It appeared as if it had been done by a knife. When I said, send for a surgeon, she said, Mr. Wilson, it was I that have done it; get a surgeon, and save my
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176812070024"/> dear Pimlot. She spoke of it several times, and seemed to be in a very bad taking. She said, I do not want to screen myself; get a surgeon to save my dear Pimlot.</p>
<p>Q. What did you understand by her saying, she did not want to screen herself?</p>
<p>Wilson. I understood it, that she meant she would not run away, if I went for a surgeon. She repeated that several times.</p>
<p>Q. How long do you think he might live after he came into the watch-house?</p>
<p>Wilson. I believe, there might be breath in him about seven minutes after he sat down in the chair; he died like a young child going to sleep, not an eye nor a hand, or any thing stirred; he never stirred hand or foot; he died without any stirring; he never spoke in the watch-house. His dying thus made it very hard to know when he died.</p>
<p>Q. Did you observe the knife?</p>
<p>Wilson. I did. It was bloody. The prisoner desired me to give her leave to kiss him; she went across the room and kissed him, and said, My dear Pimlot, I shall never see you more.</p>

I was the constable of the night at that time, I was out when the deceased came in, the two young surgeons were there when I came in, which was about a quarter of an hour after two o'clock; the deceased was dead at that time. The surgeons probed the wound, and measured the probe to the blade of the knife, and said, it just answered to it. I saw the wound, they took the penknife to match to the hole, and it did match. I said to the prisoner, did you do it; she said, she did, twice over. She said it several times. We got a coach and went with her to New-Prison; I asked her to tell her name, she refused to tell it. I was got out at the prison door, she seemed to be in a great deal of trouble; she rang her hands, but said nothing. The watchman was in the coach with her, while I knocked at the door. I did not hear what past then.</p>

I am a surgeon, and live in Chancery-Lane; I was called out between one and two that morning; I being ill and could not go, sent my pupil and my apprentice; they returned soon after, and said, the gentleman was dead. The next evening I was sent for to open the body. I found a wound in the interior ventricle of the heart, which I apprehend to be the immediate cause of his death. I could not possibly form any judgment what kind of instrument it was done with; I traced the wound from the integument into the heart. It was between the fifth and sixth rib on the left side; it had the appearance of a small wound; (a wound will contract after given) it was larger internally than externally; it had the appearance as if given by a knife, or sharp instrument; it had not gone to the opposite side, it had only just penetrated the interior ventricle of the heart.</p>
<p>Q. How deep was it from the outward part of the body?</p>
<p>Minors. It was three or four inches; if the heart was beating to that side the body at the time the blow was given, the knife need not have reached so far as three or four inches to get at the heart. I believe, that wound to be the cause of his death.</p>

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176812070025"/> in company with another, were on the inside near a dunghill consulting together; just as I came about a yard past them, one of them knocked me down; when I fell, two of them laid hold of my arms and kept me down, while the other two rifled my pockets; they took all I had out, and turned my pockets wrong side out. I had a guinea in gold, and 6 s. in silver, in one pocket, and half a guinea and 9 s. in silver in the other; I had borrowed a 27 s. piece in the morning and had changed it. Then they all ran away.</p>
<p>Q. Had they any weapons?</p>
<p>Kelly. I saw none they had, I believe it was with a fist; I am lame of one leg, and I am soon knocked down. They did not speak a word to me, nor I to them. Only one of them, said, when they were rifling me, Knock the old dog on the head. I got up and had an iron needle in my hand, which we use in casing of rabits; I flung it after them, but it touched none of them. I met Fennell the next morning about eight o'clock in Cow-Cross, and laid hold of him. I got assistance, and took him before Justice Girdler; there he confessed the fact. Provided the Justice would give him a little time to inform him where the others were, the other two should be taken in five or six days. He told where they were, and they were taken.</p>
<p>Q. Did you know either of them before?</p>
<p>Kelly. No, I did not, but it being day light, I saw them and knew them. I lay on my back, and saw them while they were robbing me.</p>
<p>Q. Who took the other two?</p>
<p>Kelly. The keeper of New-Prison did, I believe, on the information of Fennell. I never got my money again.</p>
<p>Q. Did you make any resistance?</p>
<p>Kelly. I called out as loud as I could, but nobody came to my assistance, there was nobody near, there were no houses near, but Cow-Houses.</p>
<p>Fennell's Defence.</p>
<p>I was coming along, this man was much in liquor, he sat down to ease himself and fell backwards; the money fell out of his pocket, I picked it up and gave it him, and he gave me a shilling; I had a child with me, he gave that two-pence.</p>
<p>Q. to Prosecutor. Was you fuddled or sober?</p>
<p>Prosecutor. I was as sober as I am now, my pocket was tight, my money could not fall out.</p>

<p>I know nothing about it, I was not there.</p>

<p>I have witnesses, that the man was drunk, up and down Black-Boy Alley, with the whores for three or four hours.</p>
<p>For the Prisoners.</p>
<p>Rosanna Martin. I live facing the ruins near Chick-Lane, I take in washing and needlework; I was looking out of my own room window and saw the prosecutor sitting to ease himself I suppose, and the money fell out of his pocket. I saw some silver, I cannot say how much, the lad picked it up.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see any gold?</p>
<p>Rosanna Martin. No, I saw no gold; he said to the lad, if he would return it again, he would give him a shilling; he returned it, and the man gave him a shilling; the lad went from the ruins with a child. The man was very fuddled, he was up and down the place better than an hour after that.</p>
<p>Q. Where was Fennell going?</p>
<p>R. Martin. I believe he was going to carry a child to his master. He is a neighbour's child. I should not know the others that were with him; there were several boys there.</p>
<p>Q. How many boys?</p>
<p>R. Martin. I believe there might be ten or a dozen; but I know none of them. I cannot say, I saw the other two lads. I saw the prosecutor fall all along.</p>
<p>Q. What is Fennell?</p>

I put my hand in my pocket, and missed it; this was on a Monday; and on the Monday following, I saw it again, in Guildhall; it was produced by Mr. Peal, a pawn-broker: I advertised it in the Wednesday's paper: the prisoner was at Guild-hall, also; he said, he had it of another person to pawn.

I asked him several questions; he told me, he gave 50 s. for it to a gentleman's servant. The day following, it was advertised. On the Saturday following, the prisoner came to me, and wanted half a guinea more on it; I told him, I could not advance any more upon it, and kept him, while I sent for a constable.

Mr. M'Carty came to my house a little after three in the morning, on the 24th of October; he seemed very much in liquor; I offered him a bed; he chose to sit and sleep by the tap-room fire. The prisoner and three others came in about an hour and half before this thing happened. The prisoner sat down next to the prosecutor, on his right hand. A neighbour came in about a quarter after six, for a pint of beer; going down for it, I was call'd to, to make it a pot; in the time I was gone to make it a pot, the prisoner's company were gone. An old watchman was just come in from off his duty; I asked him, where they were gone? he said, he knew not, they were all run out together. I went and awakened M'Carty, knowing him before he had used my house. I had seen his watch chain hang down, as he sat sleeping. Just before I went to draw the beer, I asked him, if he had got his watch? he felt, and found it was gone: we thought it was that company that had taken it. I took up the prisoner that morning, about eleven o'clock, and went for a constable to search him; he owned he had pawned it for another man; and that he had a 5 s. 3 d. or a 4 s. 6 d. of the money.</p>

<p>I was out of place, and met with some people, who kept me out till between two and three o'clock in the morning. Coming along Covent Garden, I met with those three men; we went to Mr. Wilson's house; I was two-pence, and another three-halfpence. I saw Mr. M'Carty much in liquor, bruised about his face, and two girls by him. Being in a hurry to do a job for myself under the gate-way, one of the men came out to me, we went on, and coming down Fleet-Street, he said, he wished he had some money, and desired I would pawn his watch. I came to this gentleman's house, I went in with it, and had a guinea upon it; after that, as I was going into Butcher-Row, they

They were in the corn bin, in my master's stable, in Catharine-Wheel-yard. I left them there the 23d of Oct. in the corn bin, and they were missing the 25th, at night. I locked the door of the stable. It appeared the door had been broke; the staple was wrenched off, and the lock thrown on the dunghill.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>I went to a club, in Russel-street. I wanted a man that lives in that yard. I was going down the yard, and met a man, just coming out of it. I went on, and found a pair of shoes, a hat, and a pair of buckles, together. I put the buckles in my pocket, and went to ease myself upon the dunghill. I know no more of them than the child unborn. The coachman I wanted is gone over to Ireland with his master.</p>
