<p>Howson Edwards. I am servant to Mr. Labrow. The prisoner came to our house on the 21st of Sept. 1769, he said he had got a customer for some cassia and opium, and wanted my master to trust him, which he refused. My master said he would not send the goods without his man went with them, which, after a great many words, he agreed to; the goods were made up,

I went with him; when we came into Fore-street or Moorfields he said he had some more goods at his lodgings that was to go to the person that these goods were for, and that he must carry them at the same time; he said if I would go with him to his lodgings he would get a porter that should take them all. I went with him to his lodgings in Still-yard or Still-alley Houndsditch; the goods were put down, he went to fetch a porter, he came back in about half an hour, and said he could not get a porter; he asked me to go with him to get a porter. I asked him if the goods would be safe there; he said yes, so I went with him. He took me to several public houses to see for a porter; at last he bid me wait at the door of a public house for him, that he would be out in a minute. I waited about five minutes, and as he did not come out of the house, I began to suspect him; I went back to his lodgings, and the goods were gone.</p>

On the 28th of September, about ten in the morning, M'Daniel and Clinch, came into my shop and asked to see some lawns. I shewed them several pieces; they bid me less than they cost me, and that made me suspect them. In about three minutes time Brown came into the shop, she took no notice of the other two, not they of her, She asked to see some genting handkerchiefs; I shewed her some, then the other two prisoners went out of the shop, and Brown followed them; they were just gone out of the door when Mr. Lucas brought them back into my shop, and he brought a piece of lawn in his hand. (The lawn produced and deposed to.) I took down this piece of lawn to shew the prisoner. Here is my mark upon it. They all begged for mercy.</p>

I am certain I locked it when I went out. As soon as I opened the door I observed that the inside shutters to one of the windows were opened, which I am sure was shut when I went out; this made me suspect somebody had been in my room. When I went a little farther into the room I trod upon some cloaths; this frightened me, and I ran down stairs to Mr. Hemmings for help. We got a candle and went up stairs; I found the lid of my trunk open, out of which were stolen four waistcoats, two pair of sheets, two scarlet cloth waistcoats, a silk waistcoat, mazarine blue, trimmed with silver, a sattin waistcoat with the lace taken off from the flap of the pocket, a linen waistcoat and a pair of leather breeches. I found a drawer open in my chest of drawers, out of which were taken eleven shirts and a pair of sheets; from the chimney-piece was taken a metal watch and a stand in which it stood; from my bed-room, which was an inner room that went out of this, I missed two gold watches that hung by the side of the window, and a hanger that hung near the watches.

They proposed to go to an alehouse to drink, which I did. Henley asked me if I would buy a gold watch. I told him I should like to see it, and made as if I would buy it. They said they had not the watch with them, but they would bring it at nine o'clock to me at the Mitre in Duke's Place; they came accordingly at nine o'clock. We went from there to the Blue Boar, in Camomile-street; we went into a private room, and there Henley pulled out the plain gold watch, and offered it me for 7 l. I bid him six guineas for it. (I had no intention to buy them because I suspected they had stolen them ) they said they would take six guineas; then Conroy pulled the other watch out of his pocket, and offered it for sale; he asked me six guineas for it. I asked them how they came by them; they said they did not expect I should have asked them such a question. They said they had some laced cloaths at home to dispose of. I told them I had not money about me to pay for the watches, but I would go home and fetch the money. I went to one Pagett, a constable, for assistance; Pagett staid at the door while I went into the house. I asked them to let me look at the watches again; Henly gave me one of them; I said I would stop them and the watches. Paget came in and took the watch from Conroy.</p>

<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>I was playing a game of skittles at Mr. Bird's, the Bowl and Pin in Wood's Close: as I was coming by the end of Albemarle-street, a parcel of men were making a noise; two men came running up the street, and a young fellow rushed by me; two men came up to me, and one of them said this is one of them. They seized me by the collar; one of them said he saw me jump, out of his brother's house. I said if you think so search me; they did so, and found nothing upon me. A good many people came up, and
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="177010240007"/> one said, take that villain to gaol, I know him to be an old offender. I was taken to gaol, though they did not find a halfpenny worth of any thing about me? The gentlewoman says she was in another house; how then could she have her eyes upon me? I was taken in St. John's street. I could have had a good many people to my character, but I did not expect my trial would have come on now.</p>

Reynolds came to Mr. Elliot's, about eleven in the morning, after he was gone to Hampstead; she went away soon; and came again at one; she had some beer and some shrub then; she went out again quickly. She came again about two, and then she entered into conversation about a woman that had robbed her lodgings. We were in the back kitchen; there is a door in the street opens into the passage; that passage leads to Wild Court; as soon as you come into the passage, on one side of the passage is a door into this back room; then farther is the back kitchen, which has connection another way with the tap-room; it was in this kitchen that she was with me at this time. While we were talking together, one of the lodgers came and asked me if I had opened the chamber door; I was afraid some robbery had been committed, and I was greatly frightened; I cried out that my master was robbed and ruined. I ran up stairs; the back of the chest was broke off, and the place and purses were taken away; I talked of having a warrant, and going to Sir John Fielding's; Mr. Reynolds endeavoured to persuade me not to be alarmed, for probably I should find the things again soon; the prisoner went away soon after.</p>

I live opposite Mr. Elliot's; I saw two men standing in the street, near Mr. Elliot's; the, stood there about ten minutes, looking about, and then they went in at Mr. Elliot's do; they came out again in about seven minutes; they ran away as fast as they could; I observed something bulged out in Preston's pocket; he held his hands over both his pockets as he ran. I saw Preston go into the house about an hour before. I never saw Preston before, but I took to much notice of him as he stood in the street, that I am positive he is the man.</p>

<p>Henry Hall. I am servant to Mr. Blundell, who keeps a wine-vault in Duke-street. On the 22d of September, between one and two o'clock. Preston and another man came into Mr. Blundell's vaults in an a great hurry; he called for a pint of wine. Preston bolted the door after him as soon as he came in; he appeared to be a great deal confused; he laid down two sixpences instead of one; he did not stay above three minutes; they went out again in a great hurry; I am certain the prisoner was one of the men; both their pockets stuck out very much.</p>
<p>Preston's Defence.</p>
<p>I met an acquaintance in Duke-street; he asked me the way to Wild Court; I was going that way, and told him I would shew him. We went through Mr. Elliot's house into Wild Court; he went to enquire for a man there. We came through Mr. Elliot's passage-again, and then went to Mr. Blundell's wine-vaults, and had a pint of wine; we parted as soon as we came out.</p>
<p>Reynold's Defence.</p>
<p>I went into Mr. Elliot's house; Mrs. Tawney
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="177010240010"/> was going to dinner; she asked me to sit down and eat with her; I said I had dined; I would come again I went to Clare Market; when I come back Mrs. Tawney was going to dinner; she said I must sit down and dine with her. I called for a pennyworth of beer. She called down a chair-woman to dinner that was at work in Mr. Elliot's bed chamber. When we had sat about ten minutes, a lodger came down and told Mrs. Tawney that Mr. Elliot's chamber door was open, and she went up and found the things gone; I paid for my beer and came home.</p>
<p>Q. to Mrs. Tawney. Was this chair-woman cleaning your master's room?</p>
<p>Tawney. I cleaned my master's room in the morning; and she only brought me the water to the door. That was between seven and eight in the morning; nobody was in that room afterwards.</p>

<p>Barnet. Yes; I was christened in 1766. On the 11th of September I went to Shadwell Dock; as I was coming home I met with the prisoner; he asked me where I was going; I said to Holborn. He asked me to go into a public-house and drink with him, Two men came in; one of them pretended to be a Squire's son. One of them asked the way to High Holborn.

The 'Squire's son and another man came in there; the 'Squire's son proposed to toss up for some liquor; he said he would toss up for 50 l. The prisoner said he was a brewer's clerk, and he could not afford to toss up for so much money. They got tossing up for money. The prisoner asked to see my buckles; I took them out of my shoes; the prisoner laid them down upon his handkerchief. Soon after that the 'Squire's son said he wanted a watch for a girl of his. I took out my watch; the 'Squire's son asked me what I would take for it; I asked five guineas. The prisoner said let me alone. I will get you seven guineas for your watch and buckles. The prisoner and the 'Squire's son tossed up for 10 l. the prisoner lost, and borrowed some money to pay it; then he asked me to
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="177010240011"/> go over the way with him, to borrow some more money. Almost as soon as I had crossed the pavement. I began to think my watch and buckles might not be safe; so I went back again, and they and my watch and buckles were gone. The 'Squire's son was to buy buckles, so he gave me his buckles to put in my shoes, which he said were silver, but I find they are not; I believe they are pewter.</p>
<p>Q. from the prisoner. Whether he did not go halves with me when I tossed up and them?</p>
<p>Barnet. No; I had no concern with the tossing up.</p>

On the 24th of September I was coming home from my lodging, I met two women; I was in liquor, and I went with them. The people refused to let us in at two houses; we went to a third house, where we got admittance. We went up two pair of stairs; I fell asleep there; when I came down stairs again I was going to pick up another girl; I put my hand in my pocket and missed my money. I am sure I had the money in my pocket when I went up stairs. I don't know that any body else came into the room but the prisoner and the evidence, who is the other girl.</p>

When I went to set the tea-things, I missed four tea-spoons; I thought my mistress had laid them by; when she came home I asked her, and that led to a discovery of the robbery.</p>

I told him there was a man up the yard in a little trouble, and he might as well go up the yard with me; he went very readily. As soon as he came into the house Dow said that is the man that gave me the horse; the prisoner said What, do you say I am the man? Dow said yes, and you gave me the note; the prisoner said that is a lie, I can't write. He sat down, and seemed as if he was going to faint; he begged to go out, and he sat upon the bench in the yard; he said I am very drunk, I am very sick. When he came in again, he said he had had a rap for a horse; before my Lord Mayor next day he said he bought it in Long-lane for six guineas or 6 l. and he said he thought it was stolen.</p>
<p>Q. Did he say where, he had been with it, before he left it at the inn?</p>
<p>Wood. No, not a word.</p>

<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>On Wednesday morning, about eight o'clock, I met a man by Long-lane, near the Charter-house, upon a rough cart gelding; he asked me if I could help him to a customer for him; I said I would buy him myself, if he would let me get a guinea or two by him. When I examined the horse I found he had bad feet, and weak eyes; he asked me eight guineas for him; I asked him if he was found; he said he was to the best of his knowledge. I offered him six guineas, or three half guineas and a watch I had. We agreed for six guineas; I had not money enough, so I went and pawned my watch for two guineas and a half, and paid him six guineas. Here is a men here that saw me buy the horse; and I can bring proof where I was on the night the horse was stole. They have misrepresented what passed; they said to Dow, is this the man that delivered the horse to you? he said yes; I said no, it was the hostler. I said the horse is my property, I don't deny it. The man I bought the horse of said he came from Dartford in Kent, and that his name was Wood; he looked like a creditable countryman; I suspected the horse was not found; when his feet were shod I found he had good feet. I asked Dow's advice whether I should send him to grass; he said it
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="177010240016"/> would be expensive feeding him to grass, and advised me to sell him, I told him he should have half of what he sold for above six guineas. I made out a note in the name of Wood, that I bought it of. I have bought many horses in Smithfield, and paid for them, and put them up in that man's stable.</p>
<p>Q. to Wood. Did he say at first that it was his horse?</p>
<p>Wood. No; he denied the horse, and said he did not give it to Dow.</p>
<p>For the prisoner.</p>
<p>Apron Brown. I live with one Mr. Thompson, who deals in horses. I am his rider. I have known the prisoner about a twelve-months. On Wednesday, the 3d October, the prisoner bought a horse in Charter-house-lane, of a lusty country man, who was dressed in a dark brown coat and waistcoat.</p>
<p>Q. What time of the day was it?</p>
<p>Brown. Between nine and ten in the morning. It was a black cart gelding; he gave him six guineas for it.</p>
<p>Q. Was you present during the whole time of making the bargain?</p>
<p>Brown. No; I happened to come down the lane, and I saw Barton and the farmer together; I stopt to see whether they dealt or no. Barton asked the price; he said eight guineas; he bid him six; he went to pawn his watch for to make up the money, then I went away.</p>
<p>Q. Did you hear the man say where he had brought the horse from?</p>
<p>Brown. He said he brought him from Dartford in Kent; that he had been to Highgate for some cash; that he had been disappointed, and that made him sell his horse.</p>

<p>Q. Where was he with the ass?</p>
<p>Pigott. It was in a little shed, where they give the asses hay; the shed is tiled at the top; the front part is open, the back part is pailed.</p>
<p>Q. How far off was the brick kiln that you stood upon?</p>
<p>Pigott. Forty, or fifty, or a hundred yards; the brick kiln fronts the shed.</p>
<p>Q. How did the ass stand?</p>
<p>Pigott. Her head was to the manager; she had a foal by her side; she was in the farther corner of the shed, that I could see him sideways.</p>
<p>Q. And are you positive that you really saw him in her?</p>
<p>Pigott. Yes, he was in her; when I first went up, he was shoving at her as a man might be at a woman: I stood a minute or two till he withdrew, and then it was he turned about and saw us.</p>
<p>Q. How long was it after he came to take his pails, that you took him?</p>
<p>Pigott. About a quarter of an hour; he got off then; we took his pails to a public house, the Cow and Calves; the prisoner came there in about a quarter of an hour; he had been home and changed his cloaths; he had a red cap and hat on when we pursued him; when he came into the Cow and Calves he said, Pray was there not a man frightened away from the cow-house that was milking a she ass? I said you are the man that b - d the ass; he said, No, I am a man in credit; I have a wife and family; I said, You are the man; I said I would carry the pails home, and know if he was not the man that fetch'd the yeast; he said, No, he would rather carry them himself.

I keep the Cow and Calves as was, it is now the Coach and Horses; the two Piggots came and brought two tubs with yeast; they said they would carry it down to Knights-bridge, and see if they could find an owner for them; just as they were going out at the door, the prisoner came in; he asked them what they were going to do with his tubs? they told him if he would stop, they would tell him the whole affair: he went in and sat down; they told him they saw a man in action with an ass, that he made off and they took the pails; he called for a pot of beer; they drank with him, and they parted good friends; he said his man was gone to London.</p>
<p>Q. Did they accuse him with being the man?</p>
<p>Cross. After they had changed a few words they looked in his face and said you look like the man; he said, no, it was John.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know any thing of this John his journeyman?</p>
<p>Cross. No.</p>
<p>Q. Had you seen the prisoner that morning?</p>
<p>Cross. I might have seen him, but not to have any knowledge of him; I have known his friends many years; he has a wife and children; his wife is with child now.</p>
<p>Q. Did you hear what bargain the prisoner and the Pigotts made about meeting any where?</p>
<p>Cross. No; they asked him if he was the man's brother, for he was like him; he said, no, he was a journeyman baker that was out of place, and his name was John.</p>
<p>Q. You have often seen the prisoner, I suppose?</p>
<p>Cross. Yes, I have seen a person go by for yeast; I do not know him; I never took much notice of him.</p>
