<p>I live at Hillingdon, near Uxbridge. I was coming in a post chaise from my house to London, on Tuesday the 14th of November, between one and two o'clock in the afternoon; I had a servant behind the chaise. Between the two and three mile-stones at

<p>Was he alone? - I believe so. The words he made use of were, come sir, your money, presently. I immediately put my hand into my pocket. Before I could let the glass down, the door of the chaise was opened. The prisoner took my money from me, and the door was shut again.</p>
<p>Did he say any thing else to you? - No. When the door was shut again, I came on.</p>
<p>Did he take the money out of your hand or your pocket? - He took my purse with two guineas in it out of my hand.</p>
<p>When the door was opened did he put the pistol into the chaise? - I did not see the pistol then, but I saw it presented to me when he demanded my money.</p>
<p>Did you see any person on the road during the time the robbery was committing? - I did not see any immediately, but I alarmed every person I met with on the road. I saw people in a minute or two after the robbery, both on foot and horseback.</p>
<p>How long did he stay with you? - A very few minutes.</p>
<p>Did he meet or overtake the chaise? - He met it, and called to the postillion to stop, then he turned about and came up to the chaise door.</p>
<p>How was he dressed? - In such a great coat as I have on [a lightish colour].</p>
<p>Had he any disguise over his face? - None. I am very clear as to his person.</p>
<p>Did you make any observations of the colour of his horse? - I did not.</p>
<p>Was he long enough with you and did you take so much notice of his person as to be able positively to swear to the man? - I have no doubt in the world about his being the man. I was robbed on the Tuesday; I saw him in custody on the next Thursday, and I was then as I am now, very clear that he was the man who robbed me.</p>

<p>I am servant to Mr. Lane, I have lived with him thirty-two years last November. I was behind his carriage when my master was robbed.</p>
<p>Where did it happen, and about what time? - As near as I can possibly guess, it was pretty near two o'clock; it was at Shepherd's-Bush the man came up.</p>
<p>Who came up? - That very man, the prisoner at the bar, came up upon a bay mare: he bid the post chaise boy stop; the boy would not stop. At last the prisoner waved his pistol over his head, and made him stop. Then he came up to the chaise door and was going to break the window. I said honest man, don't commit a rash action, my master will give you his money. Then the prisoner put his pistol into his left hand, and opened the door of the carriage with his right hand; and I saw my master give him his purse.</p>
<p>Could you see that when you was behind the carriage? - Yes, I leaned forward and saw it.</p>
<p>Did you hear him say any thing to your master? - Yes, he said, Your money, your money, your money! When my master gave the prisoner his purse, he laid it across his thigh, and looked at it, he said, here is no money. My master said there is money. My master offered him his watch. My master told him it was a pinchbeck watch. The prisoner would not take it; he then turned round to me, I had a French-horn
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="178012060004"/> under my coat, I suppose the prisoner thought it was fire-arms, for he presented his pistol towards me, for I suppose the space of three minutes, as he went off from me; he went off in a footpace for two or three hundred yards, then I lost sight of him.</p>
<p>Did he keep his eye upon you all the time? - He looked every way, but chiefly upon me, because he was afraid, as I imagined, that I had fire-arms.</p>
<p>How was he dressed? - In a light coloured loose great coat, such as my master has now on.</p>
<p>Had he any thing on his face? - No.</p>
<p>Did you observe him enough to be able to swear to him? - I did.</p>
<p>Are you sure he is the man? - Positively sure. When my master came to town he sent me with a letter to Sir John Fielding's office. I saw Mr. Bond at the office, he read the letter, he said, your bird is in the net; he bid me go to the Rotation-office in Litchfield-street. I begged he would send somebody with me; he sent three men with me. As we were going to the Rotation-office, one of them bid me go into the office and if I saw the person who had robbed my master, to come to him and tell him of it, but not to say any thing there. I went into the office; I saw the prisoner directly, I did not say a word to any body, but came out and told the person who waited for me that the man was there who had robbed my master.</p>
<p>How long was this after the robbery? - This was before four o'clock on the same day.</p>
<p>Are you certain the prisoner is the man? - Upon my oath he is. I am very sorry to say it; life is sweet, I wish I could save him, but I must speak the truth.</p>
<p>From the Prisoner. How was I dressed? - In a flapped hat, and in a surtout coat which hung down to your heels.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Had I this coat and waistcoat on? - I cannot swear to the under clothes, the great coat covered them; but, my Lord, I swear positively to his face.</p>
<p>To Mr. Lane. Whether you recollect the circumstance of the man's laying the purse across his thigh, and saying there was no money? - When he took the purse he said here is nothing in it, I said, it is all the money I have. I said, I have an old metal watch, you may have it if you please. He made no reply to that, but the chaise door was shut.</p>

<p>On Tuesday the 14th of November, as I was riding from London to Gunnersbury, I met a gentleman's chaise with a black servant behind it, between the Gravel-pits and Shepherd's-Bush, the servant waved his hand to me and said, a highwayman. I passed on, going very fast to Shepherd's-Bush. Then I saw a chaise turn out of the Action road for Hammersmith, and I observed a man riding across the green, which gentlemen frequently do, instead of going round, he gallopped pretty fast across the green, and jumped over the ditch upon the causeway about ten yards before a chaise, then he turned short and stopped that chaise. This was within two or three minutes after the black servant had called out to me; he was on the opposite side of the chaise from me when he stopped it; he did not stay with the chaise more than two minutes; after he left that chaise, he walked his horse on into the Action road, I thought to meet me; began to gallop. When he saw me put n horse into a gallop, he turned about again and leaped over the ditch upon the green as if he was going to the Gravelpits again; then he rode back again to the causeway and followed the chaise towards Hammersmith. I had a very good horse. Just at that instant came up Mr. Hurd, who lives in Oxford-road; I said, that man has robbed a chaise, we will pursue him. He said he would. I rode as fast as I could; I passed the chaise which I had seen him stop. I asked the servant as I rode by, had not that man robbed the chaise? He said yes. I pursued the man as fast as I could; I rode down Brook-green, at the back side of Hammersmith. I saw him at the bottom. He turned away for Hammersmith, and I after him as hard as I could.</p>
<p>Did he see that you was pursuing him? - He certainly did. I met several gentlemen in the road; I said,</p>
<p>"that man is a highwayman, will you help me to pursue him"? but I got no assistance. I pursued him through Hammersmith. Instead of going the great
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="178012060005"/> road through Hammersmith, he took the left hand towards the water-side. He rode down to the water; he could go no farther there; I followed him down to the water-side; I had no assistance; the place was very narrow; he turned about upon me, supposing he had fire-arms, I turned my horse about and rode back; he came after me. I thought to keep before him till he got into the broad-way at Hammersmith, as I expected I should get assistance there. There is a very narrow lane near the water-side, he went up that lane; I turned about and went after him again up the lane; I followed him pretty close. Before he got through that lane into the great road, some people stopped him, and took him off his horse. They found upon him a pistol, a powder horn, and some balls. They did not search him any further at that time.</p>
<p>How was he dressed? - In a light surtout coat; and he rode a bay mare, about fourteen hands high.</p>
<p>How long do you imagine it was after you passed the chaise with the black behind it before you took the man? - From the time I met that chaise, I do not think it could be more than twenty-five minutes. I saw him in less than two minutes after I passed the prosecutor's chaise. I believe I pursued him for about three miles, and I never lost fight of him but when he turned a sharp corner, and then in half a minute's time I saw him again.</p>
<p>Is the prisoner the man you pursued and took? - He is.</p>
<p>From the Prisoner. Whether I presented any pistol to the gentleman? - I did not see him draw his pistol at all. I saw it afterwards taken out of his great coat pocket.</p>

<p>I keep the Queen's-Arms, at Hammersmith. On the 14th of November I saw the prisoner pursued by my door, by Mr. Powell, between the hours of one and two; I was at my door as the highwayman came by me; I thought he rode in a furious manner over the stones. Mr. Powell came up directly upon the back of the prisoner. Mr. Powell said,</p>
<p>"that is a highwayman; I have just seen him rob two gentlemen in a chaise." I said, you are well mounted, sir, you may overtake him. I saw the man take towards the water; I thought he would make a double and come round Angel-lane. I went to Angel-lane, there I met the prisoner, as he was coming from the water. The lane is very narrow. When he came near me, I

<interp inst="t17801206-2-person58" type="gender" value="male"/> </persName> a little out as if to let him pass; then I snatched his bridle and stopped his horse.</p>
<p>How soon was this after you first saw him pass by. I suppose not ten minutes. Mr. Powell came up almost the instant I had stopped him. There came two other men up immediately to my assistance. When I seised his bridle he made an attempt at his great coat pocket; I catched at his pocket and felt a pistol in it; I took this pistol out of his pocket (producing a small screw-barrel pistol). I searched him further, and found a little bag with balls and a powder-horn upon him (they were likewise produced in court). We took him to Justice Miller's; Mr. Miller was ill; he directed us to take the prisoner to the Rotation-office, in Litchfield-street.</p>
<p>What sort of horse was he mounted on? - A bay mare with a switch tail, about fourteen hands high, almost blind.</p>
<p>Prisoner. How was I dressed? - In a flapped round hat, a light coloured great coat, and a light coloured riding dress or jacket. As we were going along, he asked to put his gloves in his pocket, as he was in a great sweat. The beadle of the parish had hold of him on one side, I had hold of his collar. I bid the beadle let his hands go; the prisoner put his gloves into his pocket, and I observed he put his hand into his waistcoat pocket; he brought his hand out of his pocket clinched; I said, what have you got there? I took hold of his hand, and upon opening it, I found this purse with two guineas in it (producing it).</p>
<p>To Mr. Lane. Do you recollect what sort of pistol was presented to you? - This seems to be the same sort of pistol. This is the purse the prisoner robbed me of; it is a very remarkable one, it was a present from a lady; there are two guineas in it, the same I believe that were in it when I was robbed.</p>

<p>I keep a hardware shop in the Strand. About seven months ago the prisoner came to me and said, I have some pocket pieces to sell. I said, let me see them, are you sure they are your own property? He said yes, my grandmother left them to me, I have a sore eye, and so may as well sell them. I bought two ounces of him; I gave him twelve shillings. After that I had a hand-bill given me, that Lord Aylesbury had lost two thousand pound's worth. I went to Lord Aylesbury's and showed them to his Lordship; he said he believed they were some he had lost, and desired me if the person came again, to stop him. On the 1st of September the prisoner came to me again and brought these twenty-three pocket pieces. I said they are very curious pocket pieces, are you sure they are your own property? He said yes; I said, I was afraid he had stolen them, as I had received a hand-bill that a great lord had lost two thousand pounds worth, and I must take him into custody. I took him to Bow-street, and searched him, and found this silver box, and seven more pocket-pieces in his pocket. They have been in my possession ever since. (The silver box was produced in court.)</p>
<p>Mr. Cocks. This is my box, but I cannot swear to the pocket-pieces. I had some of the same kind.</p>

<p>In consequence of this information Mr. Cocks was sent to, and came to the office.</p>

On Friday evening, I believe the 17th of November, I perceived some tea in a paper bag, concealed in the staircase in the back yard, leading to some warehouses. On Saturday evening about eight o'clock, I again saw it there; between ten and eleven o'clock I went there again and it was gone. At eleven o'clock we paid our men their wages; after we had paid them we shut the doors, and had them searched. The same package and the same tea, to the best of my belief, was found on the prisoner, and some raisins. I cannot swear to them; there was about two ounces and a half of tea, which is of the value of one shilling. We got a constable and searched his lodging and found some coffee, and some books of small value, and a penknife; the penknife and one of the books were mine; the other book was my brother's.</p>

<p>On Wednesday, between twelve and one o'clock, as I was coming from the cornmarket, I saw a crowd standing opposite the Mansion-house; when I had got through the crowd, I had the curiosity to stop a little to see what was the occasion of it. Mrs. Steward was standing against the second door from the end of a court almost facing the Mansion-house, there was no person near her but two little boys, one I understand is her son. She was out of the crowd within about a door of Mildred-street; I observed the prisoner go and look round the people's pockets as they were standing. Where Mrs. Steward was, the people were standing upon the kirb-stone, and the prisoner was standing behind them, with another little woman; I saw her come up to the prosecutrix and the other woman with her; she came close to her, and I could see her working into the pocket, the other woman stood up to her to support her, and if an hackney-coach had not come by, I should have taken her with her hand in the prosecutor's pocket, but the coach went by and she got off. As soon as opportunity would permit, I came over to the prosecutrix, and said, feel if your pocket is not picked.</p>
<p>You was on the opposite side of the way? - Exactly; there was no person to obstruct my fight; I did not see any thing taken, but it was very clear to me what she was doing.</p>
<p>Did you see enough to be sure whether she put her hand into the prosecutrix's pocket or not? - I am certain she had her hand in her pocket; I saw her put it under her apron; I could not see it in her pocket. I
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="178012060008"/> went over and asked the prosecutrix if her pocket was picked? She was frightened and did not know how to answer me; I thought she would have dropped; she recovered herself, and felt in her pocket, and said, she had lost her money. I described the prisoner, and the prosecutrix's boy went after her up Cheapside, and brought her back.</p>
<p>Did you know the woman again? - Yes, I have known her by sight many years.</p>
<p>Was she examined? - I believe she was, but I believe there was nothing found upon her.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Why did not you attack me at the time? - The coach came by and she was off in a moment.</p>
<p>To Steward. Did you ever recover the money or find it again? - No.</p>
<p>Was your pocket cut off or the money picked out of it? - The money was picked out, it was loose in my pocket.</p>

We had information he had frequent meetings with a person on Westminster-bridge, who received tin of him, that led us to watch him. I saw him take an ingot of tin out of the yard, about a quarter after four o'clock in the morning. I sat up to watch him. That was I think on the 24th of October. We have two shops, one at Lambeth; the cart is kept there; he goes to fetch the cart. He was ordered to get up at this time of the morning.</p>
<p>How did he get the ingot? - It lay open in the warehouse; I saw him come out of the warehouse with it under his arm and put a bag over it. I could have stopped him then, but I wanted to detect the receiver. I was up in the lost above, where he could not see me. There was another piece found in his pocket afterwards.</p>

<p>I am servant to Mr. Kinman. On the 9th of November I was ordered to follow the prisoner; I had followed him on the 23d of October, and the 24th.

<p>On the 24th of October your master ordered you to follow the prisoner? - Yes, on the 23d he ordered me to follow him the next morning when he went out, which I did. I observed he had something under his arm with a bag over it; I followed him into Fleet-street, down the ditch side; he seemed to be apprehensive there was some person after him; he stopped; I was obliged to stop likewise. When he came nearer to the tollhouse at Black-friars-bridge, he made a full stop, seeming determined to see if any person was after him. I crossed to the other side of the bridge, and I suppose he threw this piece over, it was found by a waterman's boy at low water mark, on the 9th of November. I followed him again; he went towards Temple-bar. I observed he had something heavy in his pocket. He stopped at Temple-bar, so that I could not avoid coming close to him. He fell into discourse with me, and immediately turned about and said, I have lost my glove, and went back; I followed him back, imagining he meant to discharge the piece he had got. I said he had got something he should not have. He said he had not. I said I must search him; I did, and found this ingot upon him (producing it).</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="178012060009"/>Is there any mark upon it? - Yes, Mr. Forbes's; my master deals with Mr. Forbes.</p>
<p>Should you have known that tin if you had seen it any where else? - I should have known my master had such tin.</p>
<p>Any person who deals with Forbes may have the same sort? - They may.</p>
<p>What did he say? - He had got a piece of metal for a friend to make a pair of buckles.</p>

I had been at church; I came home about six in the evening; then I went over to a neighbour's house to drink tea; I double locked my door. I had not been out above ten minutes before the gentlewoman's child said my bell rang. I said, how can you think my bell rings when I have double-locked my door. Soon after the bell rang again. I went over and found my door wide open; a man rushed out of my house, and passed me. I went up stairs and saw the prisoner Caddie on the top of the stairs coming down; I laid fast hold of his arm, and asked him what he wanted? He told me he wanted one Mr. Newbond. I told him I was a widow, and no person lived here but myself. He said a person wanted him at Cow-cross. I let him go, but Mr. Argyle brought him up stairs directly after, and sent for a constable; and I saw five picklock keys, a crow, and a bag taken from him.</p>
<p>Had you any light when you held this conversation with him? - Yes, I had a candle in my hand, and there was a light in my room.</p>
<p>You did not actually lose any thing I suppose? - No.</p>
<p>When you recovered from your fright did you examine the door? - It was very well when I left it, and I have not observed any mark of violence upon it since. I suppose it was got open with the picklock keys.</p>
<p>Had you so much conversation with the prisoner as to have no doubt that he is the man? - No. I was with him about ten minutes in the room, and had some conversation with him, while my daughter and Mr. Argyle went up stairs. He asked me to search my place to see if I had lost any thing.</p>
<p>Did he make any attempt to escape while he was left alone with you? - No.</p>

<p>On Sunday the 5th of November, Mrs. Newstead called at our house between five and six o'clock; we asked her to drink tea with us. She said she would go home first and light her lamp and double-lock her door, for her husband had advised her, when she went out, to light the lamp and double-lock the door. She went and came back. We were at tea. In about ten minutes or a quarter of an hour, my girl said, your bell rings, somebody is going into your house. She said, how can that be, I have the key here? We all listened and heard the bell ring again. She took a candle and opened our door; she said, my door is wide open, I am robbed. Just as I got into the court I saw a shout man, about five feet ten inches, come out of the house; I did not go after him, but went to the house. Just as she came to the stairs she met the prisoner coming down stairs. She laid hold of his arm, and said, how came you in my house? you have robbed me. He said he wanted a Mr. Newbond. I said there was no such person lived there. He said he was sure there was. She was frightened, and let him go; and he went out and sidled by the side of the houses. I seised him by the collar, brought him back, and took him up stairs. I sent for a constable; there was not one to be found. I afterwards went and brought one. I desired the prisoner might be searched; he pulled out a brown bag, with five picklock keys; the constable searched him further, and pulled out an iron crow.</p>

<p>I had been down this court several times to go to a necessary as I was going along a man ran by me in a brown coat, he dropped this bag; I picked it up and put it in my pocket; afterwards this man stopped me, and asked me what I was doing in the house? I said I was not near the house. He said he must take me into the house. I went up stairs with him, and pulled these things out of my pocket. I did not know what was in the bag. The woman said, my dear sir, if I have not lost any thing I will not hurt an hair of your head. I was taken to jail, and the next day before the justice; then she swore her door was open, that I was in the house, and she had been robbed. Now she swears she has lost nothing.</p>

<p>Did you make any observations upon the horses? - I did; I think the prisoner rode a good looking bay horse, white in his face, rather a low horse; the next morning I came to Sir John Fielding's office; there I described the men and the circumstances attending the robbery; in about a fortnight after I received a letter from Mr. Bond, in consequence of which I came up to town; I saw the prisoner who was in custody; I said I believed him to be the man; I was shewn another man first, but I knew nothing of him.</p>

<p>Did not an attack of that kind put you into confusion? - No; I was not so frightened at that time as I was afterwards.</p>

I went out in my boots and left my shoes and buckles in the coachhouse. Towards the evening I went to look for them, and missed them. I used to employ the prisoner occasionally to help me; he not coming that evening, I had a suspicion of him. I went to look for him two days, but could not find him. On the next Tuesday I got a constable and took him, and had him to the round-house. He confessed he had taken my shoes and buckles, and said he had lost one of the buckles, and sold the other.</p>
<p>Did you make him any promise to induce him to make that confession? - I said I would not hurt him. He had my shoes on his feet when I took him.</p>
<p>Could you have known those shoes if you had seen them any where else? - There is no particular mark; I know them by the shape of my foot and my own judgement.</p>

<p>At the justice's he said he went to buy a cane. I searched him, and he had not so much as a farthing about him.</p>
<p>(The canes were produced in court and deposed to by the prosecutor.)</p>
<p>I had been at the other end of the town; I stopped at this stick-shop. I took a view of them, with an intent to buy one of them. As I had two sticks in my hand, the man came to the door and asked me what I meant to do with them? I said I wanted to know the price of one of them. I surrendered myself to go before any justice with him.</p>

<p>Can you be positive that you shut it? - Yes; I am positive.</p>
<p>Does the latch catch so as never to deceive you? - I don't know that it ever did.</p>
<p>How large is this shop? - Very large.</p>
<p>And there were these things hanging loose about? - These cloaks laid close upon the counter folded one upon another.</p>

<p>"go home and mind his master's</p>
<p>"business." He immediately took me by the throat and dragged me up Palsgrave-place. I struggled as long as I could; he left my throat one time and then attacked me again.</p>
<p>For how long time did he leave your throat? - I cannot say. Then he dragged me up towards Twining's tea warehouse, keeping his right hand to my throat; he bent me down and behaved very indecently with his other hand. Then he took his left hand from my petticoats; he kneeled his knee upon my back and bent me down to the ground; and then turned my pocket inside out.</p>
<p>What did he rob you of? - About eight or nine shillings and a pocket piece, but that was of very little value; then he ran down Palsgrave-place and turned to his right hand.</p>
<p>While he was dragging you up the court and using you in this manner you have described, did you cry out? - It was impossible to cry out; I did as well as I could but I was almost choaked.</p>
<p>Did you see any person in the court? - In my flurry I cannot say that I observed any person; but there was a person passing at the time who is now in court.</p>
<p>Did you observe enough of the person to be able to swear that Cook was the man who used you so? - I can most positively swear to him and the other too.</p>

<p>"there is your bit." That was before Cook robbed me.</p>
<p>Had you an opportunity of seeing his face? - I saw them both when I had not an opportunity of speaking.</p>
<p>You are positive he was one of the men? - I am, most certainly.</p>
<p>Was there any light in the court you could distinguish them by? - There were lamps.</p>
<p>Had you ever seen either of them before? - Never to my knowledge. Thomas came up the court after I was robbed, as I thought, to look at me; when he came up I told the hair-dresser he was one of those who had attacked me; that was about five minutes after the robbery.</p>
<p>Was you still standing in the court? - The hair-dresser had just taken me off from the ground.</p>
<p>Cross Examination.</p>
<p>Was not you pretty much in liquor? - Not at all.</p>
<p>Did not you first say you was robbed of a watch? - I said I had lost my watch.</p>
<p>Afterwards that watch was found at home? - It was.</p>
<p>Is it not very strange you should say you was robbed of a watch, when afterwards it turned out you was not? - In my fright I scarce knew what I said.</p>
<p>You acknowledge Thomas did nothing at

<p>The little boy is Thomas? Is it not? - This on this side.</p>
<p>You said he came up the court again five minutes after to look at you? - Yes.</p>
<p>And you say the hair-dresser was taking you up at that time? - I was just up.</p>
<p>Was it not strange a boy who had been doing you mischief should come up, when a man was along with you ready to take him into custody? - I speak the truth.</p>
<p>Will you swear you was not drunk at this time? - I am positive that I was not; I have people here to prove the contrary.</p>

<p>How old are you? - I was fourteen on the twelfth of this month. I came down the Strand about half after eight o'clock at night on Lord Mayor's day. I saw three boys drag this gentlewoman up Palsgrave-place; the biggest boy Cook had his hand round her neck; I stopped a gentleman who was going through the court into the Temple; I told the gentleman that boy was going to pick her pocket. I saw him take his hand out of her pocket and he had some papers in his hand.</p>
<p>Did you see Thomas? - Yes; he was behind Cook laughing at him.</p>
<p>Did you see Thomas do any thing? - No; he laughed as if he enjoyed the sport; there was another staid at the end of the court watching all the time.</p>
<p>What condition was the woman in? - Screaming out.</p>
<p>Was she upon the ground? - No; I staid in the court till the barber came; then she took me with her.</p>
<p>When the barber came he lifted her from the ground? - Not that I know of; I did not see her upon the ground.</p>

<p>I am a constable; I live directly opposite Palsgrave-place. I was sent for upon Thomas's being taken; I heard the story; I asked Thomas how he came into such an affair as that of robbing the gentlewoman and using her ill, for she was very bad; he gave me a direction where Cook lived, and where I might find another. I took this little boy and the hair-dresser with me. I went to a publick-house on Ludgate-hill; the waiter said they were just gone out; we found Cook in bed about one o'clock in his master's house in Warwick-lane. We searched his clothes and out of his waistcoat came this pocket piece. (Producing it.)</p>

<p>About five minutes before eight o'clock, on the 9th of November, I was going through Palsgrave-place to buy a fillet. I live in Essex-court. I saw Mrs. Marsano at the end of the court, and I saw Cook with one hand as I thought up to her bosom, and the other hand under her petticoats.</p>
<p>Did you know the prosecutrix? - Yes, by sight. I went on for the fillet; I suppose I was gone about three or four minutes. Upon my return I saw

<p>How came you to take so much observation of Cook as to be sure he was the person? - Because I saw this woman wrestling about, and saw his hand up to her neck; as soon as ever he ran away I heard her cry out murder and thieves! I went up to her; she told me</p>
<p>"she had been robbed"; she seemed frightened. She asked me</p>

I laid hold of him by the throat, and brought him up to the prosecutrix; she said,</p>
<p>"that was one of them."</p>
<p>Can you undertake to say from your own observation at the time, that Cook was the person you saw with the prosecutrix? - Yes, I can. He had a brown coat on, his hair was hanging down, and he had a round hat on.</p>
<p>Did you see his face? - I did not look at his face. I knew him only by his coat and his hair. When I brought Thomas to her, she said, that was the person who came up to her and said, now is your bit.</p>

I went with him to Mr. Davidson's, a pawnbroker, in Fleet-street, and found the four sheets pledged; but he did not deliver up the sheets till some time afterwards, till I got a warrant from the Lord Mayor.</p>
<p>Whose property are these sheets? - The property of the churchwardens and overseers of the parish (naming them). They belonged to the workhouse, and had the parish mark upon them, which is an anchor.</p>

The crowd was very great, I could not get through it, and was under the necessity of standing there; the prisoner, who stood next to me, stooped and put his hand up my petticoats; I immediately put my hand into my pocket, but the prisoner had then taken my money out of my pocket. The money was found in his hand. I lost two half-crowns, and two shillings and ten-pence half-penny, and a farthing; the money was in my pocket when he put his hand up my clothes. He was taken to a publick-house, by the assistance of some persons, and upon searching his pockets some money was found. I fixed upon a farthing and a halfpenny. The farthing had been burnt; I took
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="178012060027"/> it out of the fire and rubbed it. The halfpenny was black, I had been in possession of it a considerable time. I had a new shilling; such an one was found in the prisoner's pocket, and two half-crowns.</p>

<p>I was attending the execution. I saw the prisoner near the prosecutrix; I observed she was very much pressed and ill-treated.

I observed the prisoner's hand upon her right pocket; then he took up her petticoats, and stooped downwards. I observed him in that position, and afterwards, when the girl (the prosecutrix) ha d cried out, it was a long time before he could recover himself. The prosecutrix cried out, some person has his hands under my petticoats, this man is robbing me. Upon her saying that, I immediately seised the prisoner. He was taken to a publick-house. I had great difficulty to prevent the crowd from taking him to duck him, which I did by representing to them the impropriety of such conduct. He was searched; his money was in two different pockets. There were two half crowns found in his pocket, two new shillings, an half-penny, and a farthing. The prosecutrix owned the half-penny and the farthing. She said she believed the two half-crowns and the shillings were her's. There was a small knife found in the prisoner's pocket. The prosecutrix's pocket was produced and it appeared it had been cut. The knife was proper for such a purpose.</p>

They told me they understood I had a mare at Mr. Aldridge's; they thought I might want money in the situation I was; that they would lead me any more money one the mare, if I would put it into their care for me. I told them there was a mare at Aldridge's, which I had borrowed three guineas on to pay a debt. I said if they would pay the money and take care of the mare for me, I should be obliged to them. They said they would, and asked me what I wanted. I desired them to give me half a guinea. They said they would, and gave me half a guinea, and said they would give me a guinea and an half more in the afternoon. I understand Clipson lives by going to persons in distress and doing things of this kind.</p>
<p>To Clipson. He says Wilson first applied to him and told him he understood he had the mare at Aldridge's? - It was impossible Wilson, or I, or the attorney could know any thing of that till he was taken. Wilson was backwards with the prisoner. They came and said he had the mare to sell.</p>
<p>From the conversation which passed did you understand that Wilson knew of the mare being at Aldridge's before he came there? - He knew nothing of it till he went in; they came out and told me of it.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I beg the character of Clipson may be enquired into, whether he has not been detected in such things before. He wished to swindle me out of this mare.</p>

<p>I live at Dartford. I have known the prisoner two years. While he was at Dartford he was a private soldier in the Shropshire militia, which lay at Dartford. My father keeps a shop; he bought tea and sugar in our shop. He had been an officer in America, and was reduced on account of some misdemeanour. He behaved very honestly at Dartford for what I know.</p>
<p>You know nothing perhaps either of his honesty or dishonesty? - Not in the least.</p>
<p>Was you frequently in his company or only when he was in the shop? - When in the shop. Sometimes I was in his company in the town when he was upon the parade.</p>
