Some time afterward, I recollected that I had not taken out of the pocket, a canvas bag with three ten pounds, and a twenty pounds bank note. I went to his house, and asked for him; he was not at home; I asked the man for my coat, I unbuttoned the pocket where I had forgot before to search, and the bag and notes were gone. I was much vexed, Mrs. Bates asked me what was the matter; I told her, in the cloaths there was a canvas bag and bank notes. She asked me if I could remember the numbers; I told her I could not just then. I went to the bank, and enquired of the clerks whether any body had been there with the notes for cash; one of the clerks examined, and told me there had not; I told him I had sent my cloaths to the taylor's to mend, and there were some bank notes in the pocket; I desired him, when they should be brought, to take notice of the man; that the taylor was a tall man in a dark grey coat. I saw him come home. The clerk of the bank came and informed me the prisoner had been at the bank with a note. He said he passed him in Honey-lane market; I went to seek him, and I presently saw him go by. I called him; at last he turned about and came over; I took him into a parlour, and said I gave him my cloaths, that in an inside pocket there was a canvas bag with fifty pounds in notes. He said he saw nothing of it. I told him, he had it. He said no. I told him I knew he had been at the bank, and bid him go home and bring them to me. He went, but did not come back. The next morning I charged a constable with him, and took him to the bank. He said, he never was there in his life: this was on the 20th, the day after he had changed a ten pound note. The clerks said they knew him. He still denied it. They told him they were sure he was the man, and told him what a dangerous thing he had done, and desired him to go with me and make it up. I said, if he would give me sundry notes for the ten pounds he received at the bank, I would make it up, but he refused to do that. We went; and had a hearing before Alderman Hopkins, who sent him to Wood-street compter.</p>
<p>On the Prosecutor's cross examination, he said that it was before breakfast he sent for the prisoner, and delivered him a coat, waistcoat, and breeches to repair; that after breakfast he went to see after the notes, and found the prisoner at work on the cloaths; that he did not examine the pockets before.</p>

I told him if I could see the note I could almost be positive to it. I saw it afterwards at the bank, I was sure it was the note, for I changed no other note with him.</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="177507120004"/>- Boults. On, I think, the 19th of June last, the prisoner brought a bank note of ten pounds to the bank for payment. This bank note being an old one, he was ordered to go into the accountant's office, and have it examined, which he did; then he brought it in to me to mark for payment; I gave it him again, and told him to write his name and place of abode upon it; he went, I saw him write on the note, Brown, Stanhope-street, May fair; he only wrote Brown at first, I asked him whether he had a Christian name, he hesitated a little, and said John; I put the word John to Brown; he went and received the money for it.</p>
<p>Mr. Boults on his cross examination said, that the prisoner came with the note between eleven and twelve o'clock; that the prosecutor had been there ten or fifteen minutes before to describe him; that when he saw the prisoner come in, he told them the taylor was come, and that he was positive the prisoner was the man.</p>
<p>Q. from the Court to Mr. Haywood. Is this the bank note you sent to Mr. Bates?</p>
<p>Haywood. I believe it is by the number of writings that are upon the back: there was a scruple when I changed this note, there was so much writing upon the back; I did not take so much notice of the names.</p>

The prisoner came by soon after in the dress I had described him in; he was called into their house, and charged with it, but he denied it. I saw no more of it till he was brought to the bank by the constable.</p>
<p>George Hall. I am a teller at the bank of England. I paid the prisoner a ten pound note in the name of John Brown. I asked him if his name was Brown; he said yes; I paid it about eleven o'clock.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>On Monday morning I took these cloaths to mend; the prosecutor said he must have them that day; I told him he should; he said here are some pockets whence I have lost some money, and shewed me where he had ripped the lining, and took the money out. There wanted several places mending in the lining; he said, do what is to do, and let me have them; I told him what there was wanted doing. My man did not come to work that morning at six, I went and called him, he came to work some time after; then I went to White-street, and measured Mr. Hunter for a waistcoat and pair of breeches, I did not leave him till half after eleven o'clock; then I proceeded through Lincoln's Inn and several other places, and we parted on Snowhill. I never was in the bank before Tuesday morning in my life.</p>

Hearing the prosecutrix had lost some knives and forks, I went to the prisoner who stood at the door, and felt them in his pocket; he would not let me search him, but made off. I found them afterwards in a ditch about one hundred and fifty yards distance from the house.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>I never had them in my custody, another man had taken them.</p>
<p>For his Character.</p>
<p>Wm Williams. I am a serjeant in the regiment the prisoner is in, I have known him about sixteen years in the regiment, I never heard him charged with theft, he has been guilty of breach of duty, owing to his getting now and then in liquor.</p>

<p>The money was sent me by my friends in Ireland two days before, to go over to them; the prosecutor met me in Piccadilly, he said, he knew me, he pulled me into the place, and took me into a back room, and gave me two shillings.

We went up, and found the door open. I went in with Mr. Holmer, and the woman; Mr. Holmer is here, there was a chest of drawers with five drawers in it; they were all locked. I asked. Mr. Holmer who had the key; Mr. Holmer said, the persons who kept the room. I then recollected, I had a key in my pocket that was found upon Girdwood, by Dinmore, at the office; with that key I opened the drawers; and in the first drawer, found this watch.

After they had been there about ten minutes, my husband came in, and Emanuel followed him immediately into the shop the other remained then before the glass, my child took notice of the shew glass, she went out and found the glass broke; when Emanuel came into the shop, he asked for two mourning rings, after my little girl had gone out and perceived that the shew-glass was broke, my husband shut the door and said no one should go out, upon that Emanuel said d - n your, blood why don't you pay for the buttons and let us be gone; upon which Hunt produced two guineas, my husband took the two guineas and said he would keep them till they produced the man that had stole the buckles; Cox was committed, and he, as I was informed gave information with respect to Ward; for next morning, Ward was taken up upon the parade; I saw Ward and knew him, though he was then in his regimentals: when at the shew glass he was dressed in a different manner.</p>

<p>Q. What will be the consequence, if, after having been sworn, you should not speak the truth?</p>
<p>Salmon. Destruction to the soul. (she is sworn) I was in the church yard, the maid came for me; I went into the shop; when I
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="177507120017"/> came in, the two men were then in the shop, and two at the shew glass. I saw Hunt go from the shew glass, sometime before he returned again; and in a quarter of an hour after, he came into the shop, with Cox. I went behind the counter; and then my mamma shewed them some buttons; there were two more then at the glasses: the Jew was there, and Ward; my pappa, came soon after; Emanuel came into the shop directly after him, and asked for two mourning rings. I saw a man leaning, with one hand over the shew glass; and I am positive, I saw him put some buckles into his handkerchief; but I did not see him take those buckles out of the shew glass, and then he went away: I could see enough of the buckles. Upon this I beckoned my pappa out of the shop, and told him, a man had run away with the buckles: then my mamma went out for a constable, and I was sent out to call in a neighbour; we were there a considerable time: as to Cox, I know him very well, he had been at the shop before, and had bought some buttons. Cox was committed.</p>
<p>Hunt's Defence.</p>
<p>I went to the shop, and asked the prosecutrix, if she had any buttons; she asked seventeen shillings a dozen. She took them off the paper; I bargained with her for some waistcoat buttons; I took out two guineas to pay for the buttons: he took the two guineas, and said, he had been robbed, and he would keep the money: I insisted upon it, they should send for a constable; they fetched over a green grocer; he said, he knew nothing of it.</p>
<p>Emanuel's Defence.</p>
<p>I was in the shop before the gentleman came home, asking the gentlewoman, if she had a ring to suit me? he came and said, he believed he had. He took out a drawer, and shewed me some; I said, the mourning was wore off, and they would not do; he said, he had no other. The gentlewoman was rubbing the buttons upon a piece of leather; he said, are your two guineas weight? I said, yes: he snatched up the two guineas, and ran out, and saw the glass broke; and then said, he would stop the two guineas, for he imagined, some of our gang had taken the buckles out: we knew nothing about it. He went out for a constable; he was gone half an hour; then he sent his wife out for an officer. A gentleman came in to buy something, who knew me; and he said, he would insure me; when the constable came, I insisted they should search me; he would not; we were in the cellar an hour and half; the green grocer was sent for, he did not know either of us.</p>
<p>Prosecutrix. This is as false as God is true: one Marks, a Jew, came in, and said to him, I know your father, to be a hard working man, but you are a great villain.</p>
<p>Ward. I would beg to ask the prosecutrix, whether she saw me?</p>
<p>Prosecutrix. Yes, I saw him at the Glasses.</p>

We then went to the Hoop and Horse Shoe, and there they began to play at shaking a halfpenny, and putting it under the candlestick; then M'Oris said, he hoped Gibbons would do by him, as he did by the gentleman the night before; that was, give him a shilling for every guinea he could show; then M'Oris pulled out two guineas and an half, and he gave him two shillings; then M'Oris said, Gibbons was a captain, and he gave countrymen a shilling for every guinea they could shew. I then pulled out two guineas and an half, and he was to give me half a crown, when the landlord came in; then they invited me to play with them, I told them, I did not choose to play at all; they played again, and M'Oris said to me, let me have your money; no, I said, I did not chuse that at all; upon that, he took hold of my left hand, and took the money out of my hand; he held the money in his hand, and shewed it to Gibbons, and said, see this young man has two guineas and a half, I hope you will do by him as you did by me; one of them asked me what o'clock it was, I pulled out my watch to see, and put it in again? as soon as I had put it in, M'Oris took hold of the chain and pulled it out, and said, it was a good watch, and threw the watch and money into Gibbons's hat; then they walked together up and down the room with the money and watch; I said, they had taken my money and watch, and I did not chuse to loose it in that manner; then M'Oris bid me come to the door; when we came to the door, there was the landlord and a constable waiting to take them for swindling somebody else. I told the landlord they had taken my watch and money. Gibbons was taken, but M'Oris got off. When Gibbons was taken to the watch-house, he dropped a parcel of counterfeit guineas in the coal tub, I never saw my money nor watch after they walked up and down the room, together with it. On Friday following, as I was going to work at the cooper's in Barnaby-street, about five o'clock in the morning, three fellows overtook me on London bridge, and asked me if my name was not so and so, and if I had not lost my watch; I said, yes; they said, if I would go with them they would let me have my watch again; I told them, I did not chuse to go with them; they said, it was but a little way, and if I would release Gibbons out of prison, I should have my watch and money again. I then observed the chain, seals and key of my watch, hang out of one of their pockets; the key is a very remarkable one; it being very early in the morning, I was afraid to attempt to stop them, lest they should knock my brains out, or use me ill.</p>
