<p>On Sunday morning, the 21st of April, while I was at breakfast, at about half after ten o'clock, Mrs. Weston came out, and cried out fire! thieves! I went out directly; I found Mr. Elmes at the bottom of the stairs, with his adze in his hand; there was a butcher there besides; they were afraid to go up stairs; I went up; Mr. Elmes and the butcher went up with me, and Mrs. Weston followed us; I had a knife in my hand. I found the garret-door shut; the staple of the lock was out, and lay on the floor; the bolt of the lock was shot. I found the bed and the bed-clothes all upon the ground. There was a sailor's blue jacket in the room. Mr. Elwes went up towards the chimney with his hatchet; we looked up the chimney, but could not see any light through it; Mrs. Elmes took his axe, and beat it against the woman's tail; he thought it had been a parcel of rags; he said there was nothing there: I put my hand up the chimney, and took her by the thigh. I said it was no man, I was fire, for it had not breeches on. She was, I believe, about three foot up the chimney; she was nearly as black as a coal. She burst out a crying: she said her husband was a soldier; that she had pawned his shirts, and was determined to rob somebody's house to get them out of pawn, or else she should be killed by him: she said a man had told her to rob that house.</p>
<p>Did she say who the blue jacket belonged to? - No.</p>
<p>Did she say how she got in? - No.</p>
<p>Did you make her any promises of favour? - No.</p>
<p>What is the value of the bed that belonged to Peal? - I have been in the brokering business; I would not give above 5 l. for the whole; that bed is worth about 50 s. The prisoner's shoes were off; we looked about the room and found them, and she put them on.</p>

We were joking together, till at last I was to be engaged with the woman that came up. When I came to be engaged with the other woman, the prisoner said my watch would hurt the other woman; she took the watch out of my pocket, with my consent, and put it behind the sofa till I got up; when I came to get up from the sofa, my watch was gone.</p>

<p>How long did they stay with you? - About ten minutes. There was nobody in the house but me; the person I lodge with goes out a washing; she was not come home.</p>
<p>Had you ever seen the prisoner before? - No.</p>
<p>When did you see him next? - Two men were taken up upon suspicion; I went before the justice to see them; they were not the people; then the constable desired me to go into a public-house, and see if there was any body I knew; I went in, and picked the prisoner out from among a dozen; I knew him directly.</p>
<p>Will you take upon you to swear that the prisoner is the man that received the money, and was present when the man took it from you? - I will. The light of the lantern reflected on the face of the prisoner; I could not see the face of the other man, when he cut my pocket off.</p>
<p>What are you? - A cook in gentlemen's families. I have kept a house in Carey-street.</p>
<p>You said, as soon as you opened the door they rushed in. Was that the outer door? - Yes; there are two rooms on the floor.</p>

<p>On the 15th of April, I was up the last person in the house; I am certain my street-door was fast when I went to bed, which was at twelve o'clock. Between two and three o'clock in the morning, my wife told me she thought there were thieves in the house, as she had heard a noise; I jumped out of bed; I heard a noise at the door in the street; I threw up the sash, and asked who was there: the watchman said, he believed the servant had robbed the house; I put on some clothes, and went down with a light; when I came down into the passage, I found the prisoner there, and three or four watchmen with her; she had got a bundle with her; upon examining it, I found it contained several of the things mentioned in the indictment. When the constable came, he said she must be searched; she said, if we would not search her. She would deliver up what she had got; then she pulled out a French-plate half pint mug, and then a guinea; she said, Here is your guinea; and she pulled out two or three caps, and some other little things; but the greater part of the things were in the parcel. She said a person who recommended her as a servant to my wife, advised her to steal what she could the first opportunity, and make her escape. She lived with me a month within two days.</p>

There was some bread and cheese in a handkerchief by itself. She told me her master lived in the Minories; I asked if her mistress was up; she said she was: I told her she must go with me to her mistress. As we were going up Swan-court, I saw Mr. Parker's door a-jar; the watchman shoved it open: I took the prisoner into the passage; she wanted to leave the bundle with me, and to be off; I told her she must see her mistress: we called Mr. Parker up; the officer of the night was sent for, and charged with the prisoner.</p>

<p>How came you to have so much money in your pocket? - I took it with me to buy some clothes, but it was too dark when I had done work.</p>
<p>Was there sufficient light to see the prisoner's countenance, so as to be certain he is the man? - Yes; it was dusk, neither light nor dark; but I could see his face very

<p>Was not you very much frightened? - I was very little frightened; God kept me. When they left me, I went home, and went to bed, and in the morning I went to the Rotation-office, and gave information of the robbery. On the 18th of March, I was sent for to the Rotation-office; I saw the prisoner there in a room, in company with two other prisoners. As I passed them, the prisoner said to me, You sulky negro, what do you look at? upon which I fixed upon the prisoner; I knew him to be the man, though I said nothing till I went into the office. I am sure he is the person that took the money out of my pocket.</p>
<p>What description did you give of the prisoner when you laid the information? - That he was a red-faced man, and I should know him again, if I saw him.</p>
<p>Was that all the description you gave of him? - Yes.</p>
<p>(Upon his cross-examination, he said the prisoner was dressed either in blue or brown, he could not tell which; that he had no conversation with any person at the Rotation-office about the prisoner; and that he expressed no doubt whatever as to his identity.)</p>

<p>I am servant to Mr. King, a butcher, in Bluecross-street.

I then said I could not stay any longer; I must go home to my master's: he went home with me to my master's, and then we went to the Feathers tavern, and had two or three pots of beer, and parted about ten o'clock.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Before the justice, I asked the prosecutor what dress I was in at the time he supposed that I robbed him: he said, the same dress I had on then. I have a person to prove I bought the coat I had on, four days after the robbery.</p>

When I got to the counting-house, I enquired why he did not follow me; he was then standing just by the place where the tea

After the men were gone home, Mr. Bennett, myself, and the other evidence, searched the warehouse, for the tea; and, just at the spot I saw the prisoner at, the tea was found lying upon the ground, in a linen bag, covered with foul paper; it was under a kind of block, upon which we tie up parcels occasionally. We found it to agree exactly in quantity and quality with the tea that was missing. Afterwards, the tea was put again in the place where we had found it. On the following morning, before the men came to work, I secreted myself in the warehouse, where I could see what passed; and I had ordered the other men to quit the warehouse upon the prisoner's coming in. I saw the prisoner go to the place, pull the paper away, and take the bag up with the tea in it; he hunted a few seconds eagerly among the papers before he could discover the bag: upon his finding it, he took it up, and ran up stairs; I overtook him before he reached the second story; I called out to him by name, upon which I saw him throw the bag of tea down; I charged him with the theft, and said, Now I have found you out: he said, No, I had not; for I had not found it upon him. He was taken before a magistrate, and committed.</p>

In the morning, I was ordered by the last witness to take charge of the prisoner. The prisoner then said he came early in the morning to move it; but, if he had known their scheme, they should never have seen his face at the house again.

On Tuesday, the 7th of May, between three and four o'clock, I went into the parlour; in a few minutes, I heard something in the passage; I went out, and found the prisoner in my house. I asked her what business she had there: she said she wanted to enquire for one Johnson, a journeyman cooper. I said I had a good mind to send for a constable to search her: she said, I might, she had nothing. I then turned her out. In about two minutes after, I had occasion to go into Mr. Gallopine's house, which is the next door; I saw the prisoner come out of the little room, with 11 lb. of sugar in her apron: she had taken it out of a closet in Mr. Gallopine's house, which is used for the purpose of keeping sugar in it: I cannot say whether the closet was locked. Upon comparing the sugar I found upon her, I found it was some of the same sort as that left in the closet. It was Mr. Gallopine's sugar.</p>
<p>(The sugar was produced in court by the constable, and deposed to.)</p>

<p>I was going home to my three fatherless children; I saw a parcel of sugar on the

I went to go out, but sat down to eat some: I took it to be broken victuals, and was very thankful for it: these two gentlemen came up, and used me very ill; they took my apron from my side, and made my nose bleed.</p>

<p>I am thirteen years old. As I was carrying the clothes home, I stopped some time to look at a little horse; the prisoner came up, and said I had been loitering upon my business, and snatched the clothes out of my hand; I said he must return me the woollen bag. I apprehended he was the clerk of the gentleman to whom the clothes were to be delivered. He returned me the clothes and bag, and then I went on towards the gentleman's house; but, before I got there, he came up again to me, and snatched the clothes out of my hand, and was going away with them; I cried Stop thief! upon which the prisoner returned me the clothes, but made off down Thames-street, through an alley, to the Three Tuns, a public-house. I delivered the clothes at the gentleman's, and informed the servant what had happened; they pursued the prisoner to this public-house, where he was apprehended; he was carried before a magistrate, who committed him.</p>

When we came there, they let us into the house; but she smelt so strong and disagreeable, I had nothing to do with her; she was enough to poison any body. My breeches-pocket was open. I put my hands in my coat-pocket, to take care of my pocket-book; (it was a very valuable pocketbook) but I did not button my pocket; it is a very shallow one: and I think I lost my money then; but I did not perceive her take the money. Afterwards she forced her way out, and there was a struggle between her and the maid of the house. In a few minutes afterwards, I perceived I was robbed. I had never seen the prisoner before; nor did I see her again till she was in prison, which was on the Monday following. We were five or six minutes together in the room.</p>

<p>I am servant at No. 2. Gloucester-court. The prisoner had been once in our house before: she came in with a gentleman: They both went into the parlour. I stood in the passage seven or eight minutes. Then the woman opened the door, and called for some water. I went to get the water: she got to the door to go out. I went and said, Ma'am, you brought the gentleman in; take him out with you. She opened the door, and rushed out. He held up his finger, and put his hand in his pocket: he spoke; but I did not know what he said. He staid about ten minutes after the prisoner went away. Another young lady came in when he went out; she went into the parlour. He held up his finger, and talked something, and put his hand into his pocket.</p>
<p>PRISONER's DEFENCE.</p>
<p>This money they swear to, is my own, I have saved up at a shilling a time. When I met this gentleman first, he was with a black woman with a white gown and white coat on. What he had, was entirely unbuttoned. I was at a distance, against the rails. I went down towards Pall-Mall; I stood upon the stone of a door in Gloucester-court. He asked if there was any house he could go into; I said there was a house there. I knocked at No. 3, and went in. He said, My dear, I have no money; I have been with a black woman; my money is all gone. He pulled out his pocket, and said, I have got a snuff box, and a watch, and a pin valued at so much, and a pocket-book at so much, which he could not part with. I said, if he had no money, I would not go with him. I said, As you have no money, I do not chuse to give my carcase up to you for nothing; and I hope you will give me liberty to get some water, for I am dry. He said yes; but he would keep my cloak till I came back. What he offered to me, was what is not fit: he is a man neither fit for God nor the devil; he is neither fit for a black woman, nor a white woman. What he expressed to me, put a shock upon my spirits, and frightened me. I went to open the door. The maid said, Take this man with you. I said, No; I do not chuse to have any more to do with him. I ran out at the door: I heard no more of the gentleman till I went out; and then the constable took me; and said, I had robbed him of so much. It must be meer wickedness, because, when he took me into the house, he said, he had not any, and because I would not condescend to his will, he charges me with this. I did not come into close quarters; I was at arm's length from him.</p>

I returned a little before eight o'clock; when I went to unlock the door, I found it was not locked, but only pulled to; and there was a hole cut in the door-post, large enough to put three or four fingers through, to get at the lock; the staple had been attempted to be wrenched off the padlock, but not being able to do that, they had taken the hasp quite out, and left the lock hanging to the door. I went in, and missed the things mentioned in the indictment, (repeating them) and many others; I don't think 20 l. would replace what I lost. My bureau, which was a mahogany one, had a hole bored in it with a nail-piercer, under the flap, in order to wrench the hinges off; I found a nail-piercer in the prisoner's room, which answered to the hole, and the hollow part of the nail-piercer was full of mahogany. Upon the bureau there stood a table clock; in wrenching the bureau, the glass of the clock was broke all to pieces, and the glass falling among the work, had stopped the clock at twenty-five minutes before five. I got some people and an officer together, and asked the lodgers if they had seen any person at my door; they every one said they had not. The prisoner, and the woman who lived with him, were not at home at that time; I afterwards saw a light in the room; I went up stairs; the woman, whose name is M'Ginnis, was there. I asked her if she had seen any person at my door; she said, No: that she went out about two o'clock, and her husband (meaning the prisoner) with her; and that she had not been at home since, nor her husband. One of the lodgers said, he saw him go out between four and five o'clock, and saw the fox-dog with him; upon which I ordered M'Ginnis to be taken into custody, and then she confessed some of my property had been carried to the house of one Jones, in Fleet-lane. The prisoner came home that night, and we took him into custody. The next day we got a warrant, and searched Jones's house; we found there a part of my property, and the fox-dog I have mentioned was likewise found at Jones's.</p>
<p>(The watches, and some other articles mentioned in the indictment, which were found at Jones's, were produced in court by the constable, and deposed to by the prosecutor.)</p>

I asked who was he? She said, Frank. I asked where he was; she said, at her sister's in Wood's-close. I went there with a constable, but did not find him. When we returned to Mr. Bellis's, the prisoner had been there, and was sent to the watch-house; I went to M'Ginnis again, and asked her what he had done with the things; she said, she heard him say he had taken them to one Jones's, in Fleet-lane. We took her to the watch-house that night, and the next morning we got three search-warrants, to search Jones's, and the sister's. As soon as we went into Jones's, Mr. Bellis saw a gown, which he said was his wife's. Then I went with the constable to Jones's father's, where we understood he slept, and there we found two watches, which we took to Mr. Bellis, and which he owned; he mentioned the name to one before it was opened. On the Tuesday, Mr. Bellis told me he had found a nail-piercer in the prisoner's room, full of mahogany; I compared it with the hole in the bureau, and it fitted it.

The next day, I went with them to search Jones's house, and there I saw the fox-dog that I had seen with the prisoner.</p>
