The prisoner came to our shop on the 13th of December, and asked to see some handkerchiefs. I showed him some, he said, they were not of the kind he wanted; he desired to see a neckcloth; I sold him one, then he asked for a pocket handkerchief; turning round, I saw him secrete something under his apron; after he had bought the handkerchief, he said, he was going to Maiden Lane and he would call for the things and pay for them. I insisted upon seeing what he had in his apron; and then leaning over the counter I saw him drop the piece of handkerchief from under his apron.

Edwards and I followed him for about three quarters of a mile, then Mole and Banks joined us and we secured him; we brought him back and when we were going to take him into a house he made resistance: he turned himself round, drew out a horse pistol and flashed it at me; it did not go officer it must have tore me to pieces, as he was within half a yard of me.

He searched my pockets, and my little girls pockets, and often threatened to blow our brains out, we begged for mercy and pity, my daughters begged him to spare their mamma, he threatened to blow their brains out if they spoke a word, he went out and came in twice, at the second time of coming into the coach he took off my cloak.</p>
<p>Q. Have you any idea of the persons of the men?</p>
<p>Mrs. Greme. No I have not, I was very much terrified.</p>
<p>Q. Was it dark or moon light?</p>

<p>Q. Did they step upon the coach, or get entirely into it?</p>
<p>Miss Greme. They got quite into the coach, one of them, when he went to search my aunts fingers for rings, when he turned about, he was almost in my lap, they felt our hands for rings, we told them we had none, we were in mourning, it was light enough for them to see that we were in mourning. I saw the man strike my mamma three blows, I begged him to spare my mama, the man that was with me, said to him,</p>
<p>"Be quiet John, get out," or to that effect, but the other did not pay any attention to it; they took away our cloaks.</p>
<p>Q. What size man was it, that you say was almost in your lap?</p>
<p>Miss Greme. I think he was a small man. One had a crape over his face, the other had something over part of his face, they were a long while with us, they once bid the coachman drive on, but then they bid him stop, and they came into the coach again; they were a long time with the footman for his wacth, he told them he had no watch, no more he had; they took my cloak and my watch, I gave them my purse the instant they came in.</p>

<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>I served five years to a barbre, my master died, and my mistress left off the trade. I was recommended to lodge at Lydia Hall's mother's; I lodged there about a week, heard a great deal of cursing and swearing and bad language: the master I worked for got me a lodging on Saffron Hill. That Brown's husband was convicted on Wednesday of a highway robbery; he might give them to her.</p>
<p>Brown. There is a person at the door that saw me buy the cloaks of the prisoner.</p>

<p>Q. How came you to be so certain as to the day?</p>
<p>Brown. We had been disputing about the age of a brother of mine.</p>

About six months ago I began to suspect him: in August last, I went to France, the prisoner had access to the outer cellar where the wine was kept for daily sale; but the store cellar was locked with a padlock, to which he had not access. When I returned from France I brought a boy with me, I gave him, and my clerk orders to watch the prisoner; my cellar is at the bottom of the Hay-market; I hire a coach-house near Golden-square, which I keep for washing bottles. On the 16th of December, I asked the boy what the prisoner had been doing; he said, he and the prisoner had been at the coach-house washing bottles, and that they had been in the cellars. I asked what they did there; the boy, after some questions told me that the prisoner brought some soul wine out of the store cellars. I then asked the prisoner if any person had called for any wine; he said, no; I asked him if he had prepared any wine to be carried out the next day, he said, no; then I asked him what wine it was he had removed from the store cellars to the other cellars; he said, it was wine upon the lees. I then asked the boy in what part of the cellar this soul wine was, and whether it was standing, or together in a heap; he said, it was in two or three different places in the cellar, and that there were both red and white wine. I supposed it must have been both Burgundy, Claret, and Champaign, and none of the foul wine is in the store cellar. I sent the boy for the key of the little cellar, but the prisoner was gone with the key: I set out to go to the cellar, and one of the clerks followed me. I found the prisoner at the cellar door with some empty bottles and a hamper, he was putting the bottles into the hamper; he said, they were all empty bottles. I made him take them out, he took out about a dozen empty bottles, then there was a wad of straw, I put my hand under the straw, and took out a full bottle, which appeared to be Champaign; then the prisoner made a motion to kneel down and ask my pardon: I told him I must take him before a magistrate, he made no scruple at all; we then went to the office, and the magistrate asked how many bottles there were, I said, I could not tell, for I had only touched one: the prisoner then said, there were only one or two that he was taking to the coach-house for his drinking, while he was washing the bottles. The Justice ordered somebody to take an account of what was in the basket, and the clerk was sent with the key, and brought an account of five bottles of claret, two bottles of Champaign, two bottles of Maderia, one bottle of old hock, and two bottles of sweet oil. During the rest of the time he lived with me, till within these last six months, he always behaved honestly: about six months ago he fell into bad company, which I am afraid persuaded him to do wrong things.</p>
