I then went up stairs, and missed my shoes, and ten guineas out of my box, which I had seen there on the 25th. I left my box locked, and found it locked. I challenged him about the shoes. He said he took them, but not to wear them. I charged a constable with him the next morning, and then accused him with having taken my money. He said he would deliver up all the things he had bought with the money, if I would let him go free; and he further said that he found the money on the bed.

<p>Q. Did you know him before?</p>

I told him no; and that I was going about my master's business. He pulled me about, and hit me a slap in the face. This was at the bottom of Dean-street. I went along; and he followed me still; he came and gave me another slap in the face, and insisted upon my going with him, and pulled me about. Then I was got as far as Princes-street, when he pulled me from one side of the street to the other, and insisted upon my drinking with him. Then he took me in his arms, and carried me into a publick-house.</p>
<p>Q. Did he lift you from the ground?</p>
<p>Hawkins. Yes, and carried me to the Plow.</p>
<p>Q. How far was you from this Plow when he took you up?</p>
<p>Hawkins. The other side of the street; he carried me across the street to the house; he had a pint of beer, and drank it; I drank none of it. Then he wanted me to go backwards; the place lay backwards where the people drank; I would not go with him; he paid for the beer, and we both came out together. Then I said it was too late to go where I was sent, and desired he would let me go home. He insisted upon my going with him to another place, which I did not know. He led me about from street to

<p>Q. Did you not know where you was?</p>
<p>Hawkins. Not till the next day. He told me I should not go home at all, that I should stay all night, and that he would get me a bed. He dragged me up an alley, when a woman came along with a pot of beer in her hand; he asked her to let me go into a house there; she said she would; I said I would not; she said I was a fool, and so pulled me in with her.</p>
<p>Q. You said it was nine o'clock when you set out from your master's, what time might it be when you got into this alley?</p>

<p>Q. Why did you not at the Plough call out for assistance?</p>
<p>Hawkins. I thought he would let me go.</p>
<p>Q. Why did you not call out for assistance to apprehend him, when you saw him in the street next morning?</p>

I am a coachman; I lay in that house; two people came through, the room I lay in, to go to bed; I know the chairman, I don't know the woman; she came first into our room, she said she would not lie there unless she could have a room for herself and her spouse; the maid of the house said you may have one to yourself, so they went through our room into another room; the door was hardly shut; she must get upon the bed to go into the room; there were four or five beds upon the same floor, the partition was very thin; the woman went in first and sat down upon the bed, she must sit down upon the bed, for the bed touched the door; I never was in the house before, and never will go there again.</p>
<p>Q. Did you hear any disturbances in the night?</p>
<p>Robinson. There was no other disturbance but the maid of the house came up drunk and plagued us.</p>
<p>Q. If there had been any crying out then, you must have heard them?</p>
<p>Robinson. If they had spoke I must have heard them.</p>
<p>Q. to the Prosecutrix. The witnesses sware you said you would have a room for yourself and your spouse.</p>
<p>Prosecutrix. I never said any such words; when the maid dragged me up stairs, I said I would not lie in any such house, I was afraid it was a bad house.</p>
<p>Q. Did you go into any of the houses the prisoner has mentioned, to drink with him?</p>
<p>Prosecutrix. No, only that one house at first.</p>
<p>Q. Did you sit with him all night in the chair?</p>
<p>Prosecutrix. No, I was walking about all night, I did not sit down at all, and I ate nothing all the time.</p>

On Saturday night the 18th of April, about a quarter before twelve, I was coming home to my lodgings. When I was at some little distance from the house, I saw a light in the parlour; and, as I passed by the parlour-window, the shutters were violently thrown open against me. I thought it had been the maid, and called out what are you about, but received no answer. I stopped about a minute, while I scraped my shoes, when the prisoner jumped out at the window. In a moment after that, I heard Mrs. Sheild cry out there are thieves in the house. The prisoner ran away; and I pursued him up Bow-street.</p>
<p>Q. Where is this Martlet's-court?</p>
<p>Macardel. One end comes into Bow-street, the other into Russel-street. He turned into Broad-court, at the top of Bow-street; I still kept on; he turned about, and asked me what I wanted. A chairman came up, and we both laid hold of him.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see any other man in your pursuit of this man?</p>
<p>Macardel. No.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure the man that turned round in Bow-street was the man you saw come out of the window?</p>
<p>Macardel. Yes, I never lost sight of him, but just as he turned the corner; we seized him. Mrs. Sheild examined the room, and a pier-glass was moved a little off the skrew; the glass was hung upon a skrew. I don't suppose that was done with an intent to be taken away; I suppose it happened by his endeavouring to get out at the window. We searched further; but we did not miss any thing.</p>
<p>Q. from the Prisoner. How far was you from the window when the man jumped out?</p>
<p>Macardel. I was at the door, near the window.</p>
<p>Q. How far had the man got when you began the pursuit?</p>

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="177204290009"/> my sleep by some noise. I lay some time; but, not hearing any thing, I concluded the wind had blown some rubbish from the scaffold, as my house was repairing. The nurse came into the room for something for the child; then I thought it was she that I had heard. Presently I heard more noise. I waked Mrs. Hankey, and told her my suspicion that the house was beset, and desired she would not be alarmed. I rested about five minutes; then I heard a pane of glass break with amazing force, enough to wake any person in the house. I ran from the bed, opened my door, and went softly down stairs in my shirt, I had no weapons. I stopped on the middle of the stair-case, to see if I could discover any thing; but I could not. I stopped there about twenty seconds, and then heard the skrew of the window unscrew and draw out of the nut. I thought it would be best to get to the street-door, and then I could alarm the neighbourhood, and might perhaps be able to secure one of them. I went immediately to the street-door. From the time of breaking the glass to my opening the door was but half a minute, or little more. Upon my opening the door, the prisoner and another jumped from the top of the rails where they stood immediately against the window that was broke open; and as they jumped from the rails, I jumped down the steps. They kept about a yard and a half asunder. I took the prisoner about fifteen yards from the house. He threw me down, and hurt me; but I never quitted my hold, but rolled over him. He called out for his comrade, Peter, come to my assistance; he called many times, but Peter never came back. I called out for help, after having had hold of him five minutes; I called out to my opposite neighbour Mr. Keeler, but he did not come down: at last one

Mrs. Hankey and the servants came down; and we carried him into the house.

<p>Q. to Mr. Hankey. How soon after you apprehended the man, did you examine the window?</p>
<p>Mr. Hankey. I believe in about two minutes. I heard the prisoner call out Peter when I was in the room; I searched him in a few minutes after I had him in my house; he had this blunt, white-handled knife, and a small crow, upon him, (producing them).</p>

I sent for my father and several of my friends, and Mr. Wilmot indulged me with going to a sponging-house instead of a gaol; we were fully committed a second time, I and one Walby, who is a man of character and property; we were re-examined on Wednesday before six justices, and, when the justices had heard the whole of the case related, we were honourably acquitted; we were committed to the bailiff's house from Saturday night till Wednesday.</p>

I am a porter to Mr. Stracey and Savage; as I was coming home one day, I met Morgan; he said he had been on board a ship, and had bought some goods, and asked me to lend him a box to put them in; he said he thought he had a right to smuggle as well as any body else; it was about four months ago, a little after Christmas; he brought as much linen as he could carry the next morning about five o'clock, and I put it in the box, which I locked; I asked him what he intended to do with it; he desired me to carry it into the coachman's room; I asked him if he had asked his leave; he said yes; I did not believe him, but went and asked the coachman myself, who said yes, he was welcome to put any thing in his room; about a week after he brought me some more goods, and asked me to keep them till night for him; he put them on the counter, and I put them under the counter all day, and Mr. Stracey's coachman came between ten and eleven o'clock and took them away; about three days after that, he brought three pieces of coarse sheeting, and a piece of ticking; and, about a week after, he came one morning and brought a good deal of goods; he went away again, and returned with some more, and he borrowed an old box, and tied them up with a piece of cord; he desired to leave them there till night, and then asked me to bring them down to the Castle, and he would meet me; when I came there, there was no body there, so I went to another place, and left them for Mr. Stracey's coachman, and then I saw no more of them.</p>

<p>Mr. Savage. On Sunday the 23d of February Mr. Stracey and I went to dine with a gentleman. Rowland has lived with me ten years. When we came home at eight o'clock, he was at home at supper; I knew nothing of this till next morning. I had a suspicion of a servant of mine that he had robbed me; I spoke to the cooper, and asked him if he saw any back-door work; he said no; but in about five minutes he said he could tell me something that would surprize me, that the coachman had left a box of linen; my coachman said directly,</p>
<p>"Lord, Sir, I have ten yards and a half of cloth he gave me." I know no more of it; he always behaved as an honest, sober, just man; I had an excellent character of him, and I believe he deserves it.</p>

Gratrix, who acted as the servant, opened the door; I told him my business; and he shewed me immediately up stairs. Mr. Sharpless was sitting with his hair a good deal powdered, and his face powdered; he was in a linen gown, to keep the powder from his dress, I suppose.</p>
<p>Q. What, was his face powdered?</p>
<p>Hudson. Yes, a good deal, rather more than there was a necessity for, I think. He asked me if I had brought some silk stockings, and bid me shew them; I opened several papers of stockings; he looked out three pair of coloured stockings, and three pair of white.</p>
<p>Q. Was Gratrix in the room all this while?</p>
<p>Hudson. He was in and out at the door; he asked me the price; I told him; then he asked me if I had silk pieces, and if I had not some black silk stockings with French clocks; I told him I had; he desired I would fetch some, and be pretty quick, for he should be in the house but a very short time.</p>
<p>Q. Had you sold him these silk stockings before you went away?</p>
<p>Hudson. No.</p>
<p>Q. When he asked the price, what did he say?</p>
<p>Hudson. He bid me fetch some silk pieces; I put the stockings on a chair.</p>
<p>Q. Did he say any thing whether he would have the stockings?</p>
<p>Hudson. There was no agreement made about the stockings; I did not take the marks off, but put the stockings on the back of a chair till I came back. When I came down stairs, I asked the servant Gratrix his master's name; he said Sharpless, and that he was a Berkshire gentleman. Then I went home, and brought the silk pieces, and the silk stockings; I suppose I was not absent more than ten minutes; I knocked at the door; the woman of the house opened it; she said the gentleman was gone out, and the servant had left word that I was to leave the things there, and the gentleman was to be at home at three o'clock; I told her I did not chuse to leave them, but would be back before three. I went home, and returned at about half an hour after two; I knocked at the door; the woman of the house opened the door; she said he was not come home; I asked her if she recommended them to me; she said she knew nothing of the matter; I asked her to let me go up stairs, to see if my goods were there; I went up; but my goods were not there; I would have taken them if they had; I searched the drawers and bed-chamber; there was nothing there; she told me, as I was coming down stairs, that, if he was a gentleman, I should serve him no more;

<p>Jenkins. I had them of Dunbar on the 14th of March in the afternoon; he was alone; I have seen Gratrix and Sharpless, or Hall, with him at other times in pledging goods.</p>
<p>Q. How near this 14th of March?</p>
<p>Jenkins. I believe both before and after a few days.</p>
<p>Q. What was lent on them?</p>
<p>Jenkins. A guinea on three pair.</p>
<p>Court. To the Prosecutor. Your marks remain on the stockings now?</p>
<p>Prosecutor. Yes; the same marks.</p>

I knew the prisoners; about five or six weeks before this happened I saw them at their lodgings; they came there the night before this affair; I was in the room when Sharpless gave Gratrix directions to go to Mr. Hudson's, to order some silk stockings; he acted as servant, Sharpless as master.</p>
<p>Q. Was Gratrix always the servant?</p>
<p>Dunbar. No; at other times he has been in the same situation as Sharpless was then.</p>
<p>Q. Can you tell us for what purpose that lodging was taken?</p>
<p>Dunbar. The same purpose it answered, to have some stockings there. We were, the day before, in St. James's Park; they had not any lodging at that time as I know of; it was agreed amongst us all, that the lodging should be taken; we had not proposed any particular lodging; we were all together when we found out this lodging; it was mentioned over night to get some stockings of Mr. Hudson. I went to their lodging next morning between nine and ten o'clock; they wanted me to go with the message to Mr. Hudson's; I went out with a pretence to go; when I came back, it was settled between them, that Gratrix should go as the servant, and Sharpless was to appear as a gentleman. Gratrix went, and brought word back that the stockings would come immediately. Mr. Hudson came about a quarter of an hour after; when he knocked at the door, I went into another room; I could hear their voices there, but not so as to distinguish any thing that passed; I came into the room again when Mr. Hudson was gone; I saw the stockings lie loose upon the chair; they agreed then to leave the lodgings; I put some of the stockings in my pocket, and Sharpless I believe had some; Sharpless and I went first; I think we went to the Yorkshire Grey at Buckingham-gate, and Gratrix came to us; we left the lodgings entirely. I went and pawned the three pair of silk stockings that have been produced, for a guinea; the prisoners stood at the corner of the street whilst I went into the pawnbroker's; Sharpless pawned the other three pair in the name of Hall at a pawnbroker's near Oxford-market; I gave him a shilling for the pawnbroker's ticket.</p>
<p>Sharpless's Defence.</p>
<p>I have nothing to say.</p>
<p>Gratrix's Defence.</p>
<p>We both agreed for the goods.</p>
