He had been at our window several times trying to cut it. I went out at our back door, and crossed the way to him. I laid hold of his collar, and saw he had the end of a piece of handkerchiefs, and had got it out at a hole through the glass, about five inches.

On the 2d of February the prisoner came to our house, and asked for a handkerchief, which she said lay for 9 d. The bell being broke, I was obliged to go up stairs to call my servant to look for it. I returned in about two minutes. My servant said there was no such handkerchief. I said to the prisoner, You have come a great many times for goods which I never found. Then she went out immediately. As soon as she was gone I missed a linen gown, which I had taken in that day, from under the counter: We always put the goods of the present day there. I went out to see for her, but she was got out of sight. I sent a person out to see for her, and she was brought back in about a quarter of an hour. I took her before my Lord Mayor, there she utterly denied it. She was committed to the Compter, till I could get an opportunity to see about among the pawnbrokers for the gown. I found it by inquiring at Mr. Berry's, a pawnbroker in Barbican. I have known the prisoner two or three years, by using my shop.</p>

<p>Prosecutrix. I cannot be exact to the time. I think it was about ten o'clock. This is the same gown. I have had it, I believe, ten or a dozen times before, and know it well. There was no body in the shop, but the prisoner, when I went up to order the handkerchief to be looked for.</p>

<p>Q. What sort of a noise was it you heard?</p>
<p>Flannagen. It was as if something was rustling against the window. As soon as I laid down in my bed I heard the window in the next room fall in. Then I got up again, and went into the room, and saw the prisoner standing in the middle of the room packing up several things. Taking the dressing glass from the table, he came and struck me with his fist, and made no attempt to get off, but then fought me with an iron that he had in his hand. The moon shone bright into the room. I fought him till I mastered him. I saw a ladder standing up against the window; I took and drawed that up into the room. I took him down stairs, and sat over him with a gun till seven o'clock; then I brought him to a constable: he confessed he brought the ladder out of Mr. Bristow's yard, which is not above an hundred yards from the window. (It was Mr. Bristow's ladder.) The bar of the window was bent so that it was forced out of its place. It was a sash window with the shutters on the inside; the shutter was shoved on one side, and the glass broke. He had throwed two japan dressing boxes out of the window before I came into the room, which were found in the morning, some distance from the window: he confessed he throwed them out. We found a knife and a great long iron scure in his pocket. I know that window was whole, and the shutter fastened over night.</p>

<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>I was very much in liquor. I wanted to get to a place to lie down, and seeing a ladder stand against a window, I got up upon it, and fell down into the house. I had no intent to rob the house. I had nothing to do it with. When I was in the house, the man came and struck me with an iron bar, and knocked me down: I got up again, he knocked me down again, and after that he knocked me down a third time. I had fourteen cuts on my head.</p>

<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>I put my wife in the hospital some days before this happened. I had no fire at home, and no place to get my victuals. I went to a public house; there were two men drinking: one of them I had seen before, but not the other. I drank share of a pot or two of bear along with them. They went away and bid me good night. I had a pennyworth of purl after that; they came again, in about three quarters of an hour, and brought two bundles of clothes. They asked me if I had any place where they could leave their bundles till the morrow; I said I had. I carried them up stairs, and put them into my room. On the morrow one of the men came, and tied up one of the suits of clothes in two handkerchiefs. I thought I would go and carry my wife a little wine. The man asked me if I would take the suit of clothes and pawn them for him; I told him I was too weak, I was not able to carry them. I had laid in bed four days before that, Mrs. M'Cardell knows.</p>
<p>M'Cardell. He had been very ill; it was the goal distemper; he had been in Newgate. He kept his bed a day or two; I cannot say positively how long.</p>
<p>Q. Did he go out on the 11th of January?</p>
<p>M'Cardell. He did, and came home with a parcel at night between nine and ten. He was very dirty and very fatigued, and said he was very tired.</p>
<p>Q. Did any body come with him?</p>
<p>E. M'Cardell. No. I did not see him till he came down to light his candle.</p>
<p>Prisoner. The two men came with me to the door with the clothes, one of them went with me to the pawnbroker's, and bid me go in and pawn them for 30 s. I went in, and asked 30 s. upon them, and they stop me. I do not know where they had the clothes.</p>
<p>Prosecutor. The shirts had been thrown out of the window; they were all dirty.</p>
<p>Q. Do you think one man could break the window, and do it?</p>
<p>Prosecutor. I think one man might, the weight of the things are not so heavy, but one man might carry them with ease.</p>

About the beginning of February I was told a cask of mine was broke open; I went on board the vessel, where my indico was, and found a cask broke open. We found there were 175 lb. of indico taken out of it.</p>
<p>Q. What was it worth a pound?</p>
<p>Curvan. It is worth 6 s. a pound; there was in the whole 389 lb. in the, cask at first. On the 4th of February Mr. Scofield, the broker who bought it for me, took me to the house of one

It is a particular sort of indico. I really believe it to be mine which was missing out of that cask; it has a particular coat upon it, a white coat. It is French indico; there is no such indico in London to be had as that is I believe. I had been looking for more, but could not meet with any.</p>
<p>Q. Has all French indico that sort of a coat on it?</p>
<p>Curvan. No.</p>

I sold it to him on the 24th. I had a sample shewed me by Mr. Green, at the coffee-house in change time, on the 3 d of February, and told there was about 400 lb. weight of it. I told Mr. Green immediately, I
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176902220006"/> knew that indico, and that I had sold it at the beginning of the week to Mr. Curvan. It is a most particular kind of indico. At that time I did not know the indico had been lost. I told him I suspected it to have been stolen, and bid him take care what he was about. He desired me not to take notice to any body what he was going to tell me (but perhaps that is immaterial to the matter). I went with Mr. Curvan to Mrs. Jones's, and there saw the indico, and knew it to be the same I sold him. There were about 108 lb. weight of it. I question whether there is any such in London besides. I sold it to Mr. Curvan for 6 s. a pound. ( Some of the indico produced-in court.) There are very few casks of indico come into the kingdom, but what I see.</p>
<p>Q. Do you mean to swear positively this was the same indico you bought for Mr. Curvan?</p>
<p>Scofield. I do. I have it now in my possession.</p>
<p>Q. How is indico manufactured?</p>
<p>Scofield. It is made of a weed; by fermenting it with lime they bring it into a stone.</p>

On the 1st of February, about two in the afternoon, two young men came to me; one was named Hunter; they brought some indico; one of them took two or three pieces out of his pocket, and asked me if I knew what it was. I said I did not know. He said it was indico, and that it was very dear. He told me he wanted to sell it, and he would satisfy any body for their trouble, if they would get any body to buy it. I went to Mr. Lockhart's house, but he was not at home; he came to me between five and six the same day to the house of Mr. Gordon, the Watermens Arms and Black Boy. He asked what I wanted with him. I shewed him a piece of indico.</p>
<p>Q. What is he?</p>
<p>Sharp. I cannot tell. I have known him to buy coffee of a captain and other things. He said he had bought as good for fifteen or sixteen pence a pound, and if I could buy it for eighteen, he would give me two shillings a pound for it. He asked me if I knew the man that brought it; I said I did not, but I heard he was a mate of a ship; then he said there was no danger, if the man had that appearance, in buying it; he said, Buy it by all means. I told him I had no money; he said, he would help me to money. After that Hunter and the other man came to me at Gordon's house; the man delivered 23 lb. of indico to me, and I told him I could get him 18 d. a pound for it. They carried it themselves to Lockhart's door, and I carried it in; they told me they must have the money, but Mr. Lockhart was not at home; I inquired where he was, and went to him, and he gave me two guineas, and I delivered it to them; he said, if that would not do, he would change a 10 l. note. This was about seven at night, and at nine, or a little after, the said two men and Baynam came to my house, and brought a bag; Baynam brought it; there were 82 lb. of it; they laid it down and went away.</p>
<p>Q. Did you know Baynam before?</p>
<p>Sharp. I did, he is a

I did not pay a farthing to Baynam. I saw Baynam and one of the other men, on the second, being Thursday morning, about eight o'clock: the other man asked me for the remainder of the money. My wife went and borrowed two half guineas, and I had 2 s. of my own, which I gave to Baynam. In all, they had four guineas for that parcel.</p>
<p>Wm Strange. I am the keeper of the House of correction in the Borough. On the 8th of February Baynam was brought in, and Sharp was
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176902220007"/> brought in the day before; at that time Sharp was charged as a principal in the robbery. I said to Baynam, Sharp has been charging you with stealing this indico, do you know any thing of the matter? it is on his account you are taken up. Baynam said he was a poor fellow, a waterman, he was employed to carry them from the Middlesex side to the Surry side. The lighter lay on the Surry side, near Rotherhithe church, as I understood; and they went alongside the lighter, and ordered him to stay; they then put something into his boat in a bag, and he rowed them to the Middlesex side again, and they went on shore with it to Sharp's house.</p>

About the latter end of January the prisoner's landlord, where he lodges, sent me word, he had charcoal, sea-coal, and wood, and on the Sunday he had made a great fire, which had alarmed some of his neighbours; they thought he had been doing something that he should not. I went up into his room, and found some of the remains of the things, some pearl ash, and between two and three pounds in money; upon which I imparted this to some of my men, and ordered him to be set about some work, and take particular notice what silver I gave him. I marked two pieces of silver, and put them into the window, between the bar and the casement, where he sat; he had not been at work from the Wednesday till the Monday following, and the Wednesday after I missed one of the pieces of silver. I told two of my men of it, and we went and found him at the Coach and Horses in Aldersgate-street: I charged him with having robbed me; he denied it: I said, You have some of my property about you; he said he had not. I desired him to let me search him; he consented, and pulled his clothes off in the presence of the people, and I found the piece of silver that I missed in the fob of his breeches. ( Produced and deposed to, by a hole made in it and being bent at one end.) I mistrusted him some time, by his earning so little and spending so much.</p>

I have not been concerned with him above four months; I cannot recollect the particular day. Steed and I went into Ironmonger-row, and seeing no light in the room in the prosecutor's house, I opened a little gate which went to the house, and shoved up the sash and went in; I do not know whether it was a parlour or not; I took out these things and gave them to Stead, and he put them into a bag, and we went away with them. I was taken up in a public house by Mr. Wood, who told me he had had a great deal of trouble after me. When I was before the alderman, I was asked about a robbery: I said I knew nothing of that; but I made information of several robberies that I had been engaged in, and particularly this.</p>
<p>Q. What colour was this bag?</p>
<p>Biggs. I bought three yards of black cloth; two of them went to the making the bag; it was yard wide.</p>
<p>Wood. I took this bag out of Stead's pocket. (Producing a black bag.)</p>
<p>Biggs. This is the same bag. I took a watch-stand out of the room, but, it being of no use, I threw that away, about an hundred yards from the prosecutor's house; and we carried the rest of the things to Smithson's house, who was at home when we came there. I turned them out of the bag in order to see what we had got. I asked Smithson to go and pawn the silk gown; he went; and came and told me he had pawned it for 14 s. which he gave in; but since I find he pawned it for 16 s.</p>
<p>Stead's Defence.</p>
<p>When I heard Biggs was taken up (he and I had laid together two nights ) I sent a young woman, who was daughter to the woman where I lodged, to him; he desired every thing that belonged to him might be carried to Mr. Smithson's, in Shoe-lane: I put the bag in my pocket to carry to Mr. Smithson's, and unfortunately I met with the constable, who took the bag out of my pocket. I live in Golden-lane, and was going up Barbican when he stopped me.</p>
<p>Biggs. The last night Stead and I were out together, he took the bag, and a tool we had made on purpose to break houses, home to his house.</p>
<p>Smithson's Defence.</p>
<p>The evidence broke my door open, and carried the things in; I was out at the time: he lodged in the house, and used to trade with people: he has sold pounds worth of things in the house; and has desired me to pawn things, which I have, and brought him the money.</p>

While we were drinking it they threw me down backwards on the bed twice, and the third time I perceived they had got my watch from my pocket: I desired them to give it me; they said they had not got it: I told them I was determined to have it, for I had lost it in that room, and I would have it before I went out of the room: one of them struck me several blows on my face, and called me all the names she could think of; after that two men came up into the room to their assistance, threatening me, if I did not get out of the room immediately: I declared I would not quit the place till I had recompence. I staid about half an hour, and then the watch came; I called the watch, who took the prisoners into custody.</p>

It was put in a house and locked up; we had not seen it from the first of October last till the 10th of this instant, February, then we found the door had been broke open; we do not know when it was done; the place was then stripped: we found eight or ten pieces, six of oak and two of deal and one oak plank, which the prisoner had made into a little cart.</p>
<p>Q. What is the prisoner?</p>
<p>Row. He is a labouring man.</p>
<p>Q. By what do you know them to be Mr. Row's wood?</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176902220013"/>Row. The fir was sawed into feather edge, from round fir; none such was ever done in the country, as I ever heard of. I can take upon me to swear it was the prosecutor's, and the oak the bricklayers had used in scaffolding. He had made it up without planing the wood, for there was the mortar upon them; the cart was standing before his house, and his house joins to the prosecutor's orchard. The prisoner was taken up upon Shrove Tuesday.</p>
<p>Q. What is the value of the oak and fir?</p>
<p>Row. We value the oak at 3 s. and the fir at 6 d.</p>

<p>M. Bailey. I saw Wall on the Monday following; he was standing to see people fling at oranges near our door. I went and took hold of the flap of his coat; he swore I should not hold him, and he got away and left the flap of his coat in my hand. (Produced in court.) He came the next day for it, I took hold of him and sent for my master; he came and got a constable; then he owned he was in the shop when the stockings were taken, but said he did not take them, but if we would let him go, he would bring the boys that did take them.

The porter put them down by the side of the waggon, under the shed; after that we proceeded to weigh another parcel for another waggon; I heard an uncommon talking, and went out to see what was the matter, when one of the men, who had the prisoner by the collar, told me they had got a thief; which was the prisoner; they were for ducking him, but I said, No, by no means.

<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>I was bound to the sea, and had been abroad sixteen months; but the ship was laid up for the winter. I had a letter that my mother was very sick; my master granted me leave to go to see her; when I came to London, she sent me to an old woman, a nurse, at Bloomsbury; as I was going there, I met a man who asked me where I had been; I told him: he said, if you will carry a parcel for me, I will pay you for it, and ordered me to meet him at the Fleet-market; which I did: he bid me follow him: I did; he then went and lifted that parcel on my shoulders, and again bid me follow him: he went out, and as I was going after him, that gentleman laid hold of me. I called to the man, Thomas or John, Why don't you answer! but he made off. Be pleased to ask the porter, whether I did not call in that manner.</p>
<p>Q. to More. Did you hear the prisoner call as he said?</p>
<p>More. When he found I had laid hold of him, he said (Tom stop, don't go away.) I did see the glimpse of a man, but not to discern what dress he had on; he ran off as fast as he could towards Fleetstreet, down the side of the market.</p>

Last Thursday two women came into my shop between six and seven in the evening, and asked to look at some striped lawn; upon which my servant took some out of the counter. In the mean time I heard something like the breaking of the glass; I turned round and saw the prisoner at the window on the outside. I observed his arm move several times by the light of the lamp, which is exactly over the place. I went out and saw his hand upon the piece of handkerchiefs: he had them better than half way out of the window where he had broke the glass. As soon as he saw me, he let them go, and ran away. I called, Stop thief! He ran opposite Fleet-market, cross the way, and ran up Snow hill. I ran after him, and caught him in Cock-lane. I brought him down Snow-hill. There were four or five people endeavoured to take him from me. I called assistance, and brought him back to my shop.</p>
<p>The prisoner had not compleated the felony, by getting the piece in his possession.</p>
