On the 18th, I lost a black gelding, out of the same field, on the Friday following, I was at Smithfield to buy a horse: when I was paying for it, one Saunders told me, that a black horse had been sold to Mr. Hopkins
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="177809160003"/> in the Borough; we went and found the black horse; Saunders said, that one Allen had bought a brown horse; that he was sure was mine. We went the next morning to Allen at Rotherithe, and found it there; when we were at Hopkins's, he said they were sold at Tattersell's, and he believed the man was not paid; we went up to Tattersell's at eleven at night; they told us there, that he had not received the money, and they expected him to come in the morning which he did, and was taken by Wildman, Mr. Tattersell's servant.</p>
<p>- WILDMAN sworn.</p>
<p>The prisoner brought a brown gelding to Mr. Tattersell's to sell on the 10th of June, and a black gelding on the 18th; one Mr. Dixon bought the brown one, and Hopkins in Mint-street in the Borough bought the other.</p>
<p>Did you stop the man? - Yes; on the Saturday morning the 20th of June, when he came to receive the money for the second; he had received the money for the first before we knew of it; he did not seem to say much when he was stopped. The constable took him to the round-house.</p>
<p>Is neither Allen nor Hopkins here? - No.</p>
<p>Q. to Wildman. What were the marks of the horse sold at Tattersell's? - A black horse with part of one of his ears cut off; it was booked in the name of Edmonds; he said his name was

<p>I am journeyman to Mr. Zenogle. I was in the compting-house when the linens were taken away; they were taken off a pile of printed linens which I had laid not above an hour before near the door; they were taken away at about four in the afternoon; I heard somebody go from the door; as there was no one in the shop it raised my suspicion; I went to the door and saw a
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="177809160004"/> person with some linens on his moulder turning the corner.</p>
<p>Was that person the prisoner? - I believe it was; I cannot swear to him; I only saw his back; I missed the linen-immediately as I came to the door; as soon as I had called the maid to take care of the warehouse, I pursued the man but went a wrong way, so I was not present when he was taken; I saw him in custody of some gentlemen who were taking him to Guildhall. The person I saw with the linen had a dark grey coat on.</p>
<p>Mr. DEPUTY JONES sworn.</p>
<p>On Tuesday the 4th of August in the afternoon, as I was going to Guildhall, I saw the prisoner at the end of Basinghall-street in Fore-street, with some pieces of linen on his shoulder; I said to Mr. Wyat and Mr. Hall, who were in company, that I thought by the manner of his carrying the linen that he had stole it; Mr. Hall and I followed him; seeing himself observed, he stopped to make water; we went up to him and asked what he had got there; he said some lines which he was carrying to Mr. Jones's in Moor-lane. He had passed through Moor-lane. We met Mr. Jones, the beadle, by the way. When I found the prisoner's account so trifling I gave the constable charge of him.</p>

We followed the man down Moor-lane. He was asked how he came by the pieces of linen, he said, he had them at a house in Coleman-street, and was to carry them to Moor-lane. We asked him to go back to the place where he had them from; he said, he could not do that for he had them of a man who gave him sixpence to carry them. Mr. Deputy Jones gave the beadle (who we had picked up by the way) charge of the prisoner. We took him to Guildhall, and while we were there a young man came in and said he was servant to Mr. Zenogle, and that they had lost the four pieces of printed linen.</p>

<p>I am clerk to a proctor in Doctors Commons.

I turned my back to the tankard to speak to the witness that is here; the prisoner paid for the beer he had been drinking, and came and sat down behind us. In about ten minutes I turned about and the prisoner and the tankard were gone. The person that delivered me the tankard came and demanded it; I went out and saw the prisoner about thirty yards from the door; I pursued him, and took the tankard from under his arm; it was under his great coat.</p>

<p>You was at this time an accidental visitor at the house? - Yes.</p>

<p>He could have no occasion to come into your bed-room; he did not wait upon you? - No.</p>
<p>I suppose the maid servants waited upon you? - Yes.</p>
<p>Then this man could have no access to the room you lay in? - He had access to Mr. Nevill's bed-room.</p>
<p>But you did not sleep in Mr. Nevill's bedroom? - Yes, I did; they were there when I went away in the morning; I had not wore any over night only the locket and ear-rings; in the morning I sent the servant for them.</p>

<p>[They were produced in court, and deposed to by the prosecutrix.]</p>
<p>On one Sunday, as Mrs. Cox has said, my master ordered me to make his baggage ready and to go to the country. I went up into my master's dressing-room, and not finding my powder sack and comb as customary, I then went to my master's bed-chamber, and found the sack of powder and the combs in a table-cloth wrapped up together: I wrapped up the sack of powder and the combs in that table-cloth that was upon the table; after that, I took down that table-cloth to wrapped up and put it into the baggage that belonged to my master's I had the key of the trunk that was shut up, and I put the trunk behind the carriage; this happened in the day-time. When I attended my master at night to put him to bed as customary, I found that I had put up these things by mistake; finding these things put there by mistake which I knew nothing of before, and knowing them to belong to the lady, thinking that the lady was to go upon the journey with us; but I did not find an opportunity of delivering them again which I intended. The portmantua was put behind the carriage as usual. The lady next morning took a post chaise to return to London. When the lady came to London, she found, as really it was, that the jewels were missing; she wrote a letter to Mr. Nevill, who wrote one to me, to inquire whether I had seen the effects belonging to the lady, and to examine my portmantua. As I found my master wanted to examine into my things, I thought the best way would be to put them apart, and give them myself to the lady on my return to London, but had no opportunity of coming as I staid upwards of six weeks in the country. I was threatened to be carried to Mr. Wilkinson's. I had them about me in my pocket, intending to put them in the same room where I had taken them from by mistake; but I had not time on my arrival at London. I was conducted immediately to Mr. Wilkinson's; at Mr. Wilkinson's, a gentleman interrogated me several times; as that gentleman did not understand French, he thought proper to have me conducted to justice Fielding's; when I understood I was going there, I put the jewels into my hat, intending on my return, to put them in the place I had taken them from.</p>
<p>(The prisoner called five witnesses who gave him a good character.)</p>

<p>Court.

<p>How far did he put any thing into you? - I cannot tell how far; I felt something wet come from him. The Sunday before this happened, I went to the necessary in the yard; he came to the vault, and pulled the door open, and would have done it then, only the mistress of the house was in the necessary with me, and saw him.</p>

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="177809160010"/>Do you think from the appearance that you saw that it was possible, or not, that she should have been entered by a man? - It was impossible as there was not a laceration of the hymen.</p>
<p>How far in this child do you suppose the hymen to be up the vagina, because I have understood upon former occasions, that it is various in different subjects? - It sometimes happens so, but in the common course of things there is little deviation.</p>
<p>How high do you suppose the hymen to lye up the vagina in this child? - Not high; I suppose about half an inch.</p>
<p>Whatever then was the cause of this injury, you think from appearances it was impossible that she should have been entered by a man? - I should suppose so. It is necessary to observe, that previous to this complaint that was made, the child had a relaxation of the bladder; her urine came away involuntary, which would cause an inflamation of the parts.</p>
<p>How long had she been troubled with this complaint? - I cannot justly tell. I am pretty confident she must have had it some time.</p>
<p>Was she troubled with that complaint at the time you examined her? - I believe she was.</p>
<p>Whether in your knowledge and experience that disorder, occasioning a discharge from young girls, which produces a degree of inflammation, is not extremely common? - It is very common.</p>

The hymen was as perfectly complete as any I ever saw; I observed a small discharge, I must own, upon the shift; the mucous was not more upon the part than what we commonly observe. There was a very slight degree of inflammation, about the urethra, which is a little distance from the vagina, where the urine passes out, there I did observe just round the passage a very slight degree of inflammation. In short, from the appearance all together, there was not the least reason to suspect that any violence had lately been done to the parts.</p>
<p>Are you clear from these circumstances, that she never could have been entered by a man? - It was impossible; the orifice was not larger than the size of a large quill.</p>
<p>How high up in the vagina do you imagine the hymen to have laid? - The hymen, in all that I have examined, lies at the very enterance of the vagina, not within the vagina; it is not called the vagina till you pass the hymen.</p>
<p>What do you call it till you arrive at the hymen? - There are the external labia and the little labia, which we name nymphae; they belong to the external parts.</p>
<p>If there had been any force or violence used to her so recently as a week; do you think that you should have discovered it? - If there had been much violence used, I think she could not have recovered it in that short space of time; there must have been some more marks.</p>
<p>With respect to the discharge, whether it is not a complaint to which children are very subject? - Exceedingly common; we see it every day in the female sex of all ages; it may arise from a variety of causes, and when this happened it was exceeding hot weather.</p>
<p>And when that acrid discharge is produced; it is always attended with a degree of inflammation? - Less or more.</p>
<p>Jury. I believe, Sir, you heard the evidence of the child? - I did.</p>
<p>Do you suppose that if the violence had been used which the child mentioned, that it was not possible to have seen more appearances of it? - There must have been some different appearances, I think, to what there was; it is impossible to say what six or seven days may do in case of little violence done, but if great violence had been used, I think it impossible; if there had been an introduction, there must have been other appearances of it.</p>
<p>Dr. COOPER sworn.</p>
<p>I examined the child very attentively; there was a little redness upon the external parts; in other respects the appearances were quite natural. There was no swelling at all, no excoriation, and much left any laceration
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="177809160011"/> at all; there was not the least. The hymen was quite complete, as perfect as possible, and much more so than it usually is in children. There was a little redness upon the passage to the bladder, but the child had a weakness in the bladder; redness is universal where there is that weakness, if the hymen hath once been penetrated it never unites afresh; the remains of it forms the caruncula myrtiformes. So it is absolutely impossible that there could have been the least penetration, nor were there any marks of violence whatsoever upon the parts.</p>

<p>Do you know any thing further than merely the account that she has given us? - I took her into the entry; she spoke to me, and nobody else; then she came in again; I know nothing of the people that she was at nurse with; I had not seen the child, further than her coming on errands; she did not say any thing to me till that day. I took her through the entry that goes to the yard door, and asked her what she wanted; she said, she was used very ill where she was at nurse; I asked her in what respect, whether she had victuals enough, or whether they beat her; she said, she had victuals enough, and they did beat her, but that they had used her worse than that; she told me that the woman she lived with went home with her mother's gown, that then the man got out of bed, took her from the foot of the bed to the head of the bed, and got on her, and she said she cried out; upon which he got up, and shut the door, and said he would lick her, if she did not hold her tongue; I asked her why she kept it to herself so long; she said, she expected her mammy on the Sunday, and did not like to tell anybody; that her mammy did not come on the Sunday and therefore she came to tell me on the Monday; I asked her if she was in any pain; she said she could not for three days sit, but half way in her chair, and it hurt her when she made water; I told her I could not have an opportunity of sending to her mother till next day, because I was washing; I sent next day to her mother, and her mother came immediately.</p>
<p>Did you examine her? - No; the woman that was washing for me searched her, but I was standing by in the kitchen; I saw something on her shift, and she looked reddish and sore. She said that was not the shift that she had on, for that the woman who washed for her put another on; she said the other was worse than that.</p>

<p>I am the wife of the prosecutor, who is employed in selling salop in Moorfields; I went out according to my usual custom in company with my husband and daughter, who assisted me in carrying my table and salop into Moorfields, at four o'clock in the morning; at about nine my daughter returned and perceived that the box in which this money was kept was broke open, and the money gone; my bureau and the place where I kept my clothes and other effects were all opened, and the things contained in them were thrown about the floor, and there were two of my gowns wrapped up to all appearance, with an intent to carry them away; this bag lay near them, I apprehend it was meant to put these clothes and gowns into the bag and carry them away; but the person, I suppose, was disturbed, and therefore left the bag behind him. I am sure that this bag which has been produced, was the bag that belonged to the prisoner, for the prisoner had applied to me before for a bag; I had offered him one, which was worth very little; he refused to accept of it, in a short time after that I saw he had a bag, which I made particular observations upon; it had more holes in it than that I offered him, and was like a dirty-pillow case. I said so to him at the time he showed it me; I made such observation upon it, that I can swear to it. When the prisoner was taken up, the sum of one pound seventeen shillings and six-pence was found in his breeches pocket, one six-pence which was a part of that money that was in my box, at the time that this money was stole; the forty-four pounds was not made up when I removed, but put up into the box afterwards.</p>

<p>I am the daughter of the prosecutor. I came home at nine in the morning, the prisoner's bag was found there, this is the bag: I was present when the bag was produced by the prisoner to my mother. I made the same observation upon it at the time the prisoner produced it, and said, it was not much better than that my mother had offered him; and it was like a dirty pillow case. I am sure it was the same identical bag which the prisoner before had produced, and the sixpence that was found in his pocket, I take upon me to swear is the identical sixpence that was in the box at the time we went out in the morning. I am sure it was in the box when it was broke open; another reason for suspecting the prisoner, was, he assisted in placing the box where it stood.</p>
