<p>Mr. Garrow, Prisoner Bertram's Counsel. Did you see it dropped? - I did not; a constable was sent for; there was other people in the shop, Mrs. Loate was one of them, and she called up stairs and said, here is the muslin.</p>

<p>Prisoner. I would wish to ask the lady whether she saw me come out with the cloaks under my arm? - No, I did not, but I can positively recollect, he was one of the three that was in the shop.</p>

He had paid five several payments under that licence; the 20th of June, he was in arrear to the Excise office, three several payments, which made exactly the sum of 18 s. on the 20th of June the prisoner came to the house of Beardmore, and finding him not at home, asked his niece Mrs.

<p>"Received for three payments for licence by me, J. Smith;" he told her if you will send your girl with me to the Excise Office, I will give you the 3 s. in change, the girl followed him so close, he tried to get rid of her; at last he gave her the change, he gave her three shillings, the girl went home, soon after this Beardmore applied to the Excise office, and upon producing this receipt, it appeared to be very manifest it was not any person belonging to the Excise office, or that was entitled to receive it; Beardmore desired therefore that Mrs. Palmer might attend; they attended, and when they came, there was some suspicions arose on the prisoner at the bar, from his known character and situation in the office; and being shewn among other persons, Mrs. Palmer, together with the girl, immediately pitched on the man, as the man who had been there pretending to be a clerk of the Excise, intitled to receive the money for this six weeks duty, and had given the receipt in the name of Smith; upon this the prisoner was committed for the offence, and having given a receipt for the payment of this sum of 18 s. You may well conceive that the Excise office would not on the consideration of so small a sum have taken up this prosecution, but it is a very material question to the revenue, and to the public in general, if persons employed under that office, who by being employed easily learn the different sums due, either from publicans, or other persons, liable to pay duties, by this manoeuvre of theirs, knowing, as they must do frequently, that the sums are in arrear; if, by going to persons that owe the money, they get it, it becomes a very serious thing to
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="178907080011"/>the public; you see in this case, his having been an officer in the Excise he knew how to commit this fraud, because he knew very well that in general these publicans were sometimes in arrear in their payments, he knew likewise what was very true, that carrying these receipts in his pocket, would forward his design; says he, you see there are three receipts of the same kind; when persons are employed in this way it is necessary they should be careful of what is entrusted to them; he knew perfectly well the whole manner of conducting this business, he knew he could by an artful tale impose on the publicans, and by that defraud the public and the revenue; he knew perfectly well that the Excise office always give receipts with particular caution on the back of the licences, he to avoid that gives it on a distinct piece of paper; if there was any doubt of his not knowing the fraud, why go by a false name? his name was not Smith, his name was Sutton; he had represented himself as an officer of Excise under that name, that name was made use of to avoid detection. Gentlemen, the facts I have opened to you lie in a very narrow compass: his going and his pretending to be an officer; his writing a receipt: for it is not left as a vague uncertain point, who wrote the receipt; he himself wrote the receipt in the name of Smith; so I shall prove that his name is not Smith, but Sutton; where then can be the doubt but he was conscious at the time of being guilty of forgery, and endeavouring to defraud the publican of 18 s.? Gentlemen, in this great town, these frauds amount to very large sums indeed. The revenue is defrauded by a number of tricks by those persons that ought to protect them, and when found out it becomes a serious question indeed, because that confidence that is placed in them makes an exemplary punishment necessary: Gentlemen, I shall prove these facts, which seem to be very short, and when I have done that, it will become your duty to pronounce the prisoner guilty of the charge, as laid in the indictment.</p>

He asked me if he could see the licence; I told him I could fetch it; I fetched it down, and wished him to write on the back of the licence; he shewed me his pocket book, and told me I need not think he was a deceiver, for by that I might know he was come from the office; so I fetched the licence down, and gave him the money; I wished him to write on the back of the licence, but he refused; I gave him two half guineas, the money due was 18 s. for three payments; he said it was of no use to write on the back of the licence, so he wrote on a bit of paper, and said my uncle might take that when he went to the office, and it would answer the same; that what was wrote on the back of the licence must be done at the office.</p>

<p>I am entirely innocent of any forgery whatever; and there is no person in the office whatever that is authorised to receive any licence, which I believe Mr. Law will acquaint you and the honorable Court.</p>
<p>Court to Mr. Silvester. You have taken upon you in the indictment to describe this house by the sign of the Bunch of Grapes, and the licence is by the sign of the Grapes.</p>
<p>Mr. Silvester. It only states it is known by the sign of the Bunch of Grapes, it does not state it is so.</p>
<p>Court to Mr. Law. Do you know this house? - No.</p>
<p>Prisoner. My Lord, the only evidence to serve me on this business, I subpoened today, and he will not be in town till tomorrow, which is one Mr. Davidson of London-wall; I have a wife and four children, and I hope for the mercy of the Court in my situation.</p>
<p>Court. Gentlemen of the Jury, the prisoner seems to wish to point out to you that there was no person in the office of the name of Smith, entitled to receive the money, and that if he had signed Sutton, she would have paid him. To dispose of the first question, it does not in any degree alter the nature of the crime; the crime of forgery consists in making a false writing with intent to deceive or defraud another; and it is perfectly immaterial, considering this offence, whether the name that is written be that of a person in existence, or of a person that never existed in the world; if the name be false, that is all that is required; then upon that fact, and in order to see whether the name is false or not, it was necessary for them to prove that this receipt given by him, was given in a false way; in order to do that, they have proved to you, by two witnesses, that the prisoner's name is Sutton; if his name is Sutton, and he assumed another name, and signs this receipt by the name of Smith, it is a false receipt, it is a false writing, any name that he had made use of, which was not his name, makes it a false writing, and the very purpose for which a man makes use of another name, and not his own, is to deceive and to defraud; for it is to prevent detection; and if they had not known him by person, they never could have found out that he was the same man; he thinks fit to sign this receipt with the name of Smith; therefore there is no question, but that in point of law it is a false writing, which will constitute the offence of forgery, if it is done with intent to deceive. The next article is that it was immaterial whether he had used the name of Smith or his own name, namely that of Sutton; but that would make no difference in the offence, whatever his name had been, she said she would have paid the money, because she referred to that authority with which he pretended to be cloathed; for he came to her in the character of a clerk of the Excise-office; and if he was a clerk in that office, she giving credit to his report that he was so, it was perfectly immaterial whether his name was Sutton, Smith, or any thing else; therefore these two points will not serve the prisoner at all, if you believe the evidence, and are satisfied upon it; with respect to the intention it is laid in the indictment in different ways; first to defraud the King; secondly to defraud Mr. Beardmore; it is not worth an observation to state any distinction between them. The prisoner by means of this receipt did obtain the eighteen shillings; of which sum, if the receipt had passed genuine, the King would have been defrauded; if it turns out
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="178907080015"/>afterward, and is detected as a forgery, the case is that Beardmore is defrauded, and must pay it over again. Gentlemen, if upon these facts you are satisfied that the prisoner gave this receipt in a false name, with intent to defraud, you will find him guilty; if not, you will acquit him.</p>

<p>How came you to charge this as a capital charge, did any body tell you to do it? - No, nobody told me, I did it of myself.</p>
<p>How came you to know it was a capital offence? - To be sure it was a capital offence.</p>
<p>What is the distinction between its being a capital offence, and its not being so? - I am not so deep learned as that.</p>
<p>Did not the officer or some person or other inform you that this was a capital offence? - No.</p>
<p>How came you to know it was a capital offence, to steal these articles in this way? - I know I was a sufferer by what I lost.</p>
<p>What instructions did you give the officer about this indictment? - I told the gentleman that I had lost three gowns, valued at 40 s. a gown; a petticoat, value 5 s. another petticoat, value 5 s. a pair of laced ruffles, and a black silk petticoat.</p>
<p>What did the officers say to you? - They said nothing to me, they asked me what I valued my things at? - I valued them as low as I could.</p>
<p>Are you sure the things would sell at the value you put upon them? - A great deal more.</p>
<p>Are there any other lodgers in your house? - No, I have nobody else, but myself and my daughter; the prisoner appeared like a gentlewoman, she locked the door when she went away; and took the key with her, which was about six o'clock.</p>
<p>But during the time you saw your things last, in the morning; after the time you saw your things, was not your door left open occasionally, as it used to be before? - I used to shut my dining room door.</p>
<p>But did not lock it? - No.</p>

<p>Court to Prosecutrix. Is this true that you went to the Bail dock? - Do you think she will not say any thing? No, my Lord; a Gentleman enquired for her.</p>
<p>Was it in your presence, and at your request? - No, he came to me, and told me she was there, it was a gentleman, I stood upon the stairs, her name is on the list; I had no occasion to go to see her, I knew her face very well.</p>
<p>Are you sure that is the woman? - I wish I was as sure of entering the kingdom of heaven.</p>

<p>I am Surveyor to the Chelsea waterworks Company.</p>
<p>How do you make it appear that these are a Company? - They are a body corporate; they are known by repute, to be the Governor and Co. of the Chelsea waterworks; this lead was lost on the 10th of June, I was sent for and informed the two prisoners were in custody for stealing of lead; I never saw them till I saw them at the Public office. I first saw the lead at St. George's work-house, it had a day or two before been taken off some iron railling that I had surveyed, which was round a bason in

<p>When you last saw it, was it separated from the railing or not? - It was quite separate from the railing; taken and put in a stable. I believe I saw it the day before; I did not see it on the prisoner; I can safely swear it belongs to the Chelsea water works, it was cut off in a particular manner; there is no particular stamp, I should have known it at York.</p>

<p>I am a watchman of St. George's, Hanover-square; the corner of Park-street; I stopped the prisoner Delany, at half past four in the morning, on the 10th of June; I perceived him coming from the top of Park-lane, which is a very little distance from where the lead was brought, very near the stables, he had it on his back, he did not perceive me, I let him come up to me, I was standing against a post, then I crossed and met him; I said, my friend, you are heavy loaded; yes, said he; says I, what have you there? he said it was immaterial, it did not signify; says I, it does signify to me, I insist on stopping you; he seemed very much agitated; he said if I would go
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="178907080023"/>back with him, he would convince me, that such a gentleman gave it him: meaning Mr. Bonniface, collector of the water tax; then again he deviated from that, and mentioned the turn-cock, whose name is Waddingham; I took him to the watch-house, and fetched the other prisoner from his master's house, the Collector's house; I understood he was a hired servant, there was no lead upon him, but I saw it in the stable, I offered to serve Delany the prisoner, to go to any friend to assist him, in my power; by that, he desired me to go into the Park, to stand against the rails, and to call John the Trunk-man; I thought this person might be an accomplice; I went into the Park, it was early between four and five in the morning; I saw a gentleman fishing at the bason, and I enquired for John the Trunk-man; I received intelligence of him. I called, he did not answer; presently I saw the stable door open, and he was sweeping the stable, this was about a quarter of an hour after I took the lead from the other prisoner; I called him by the name of John the Trunkman; he answered by that name. I am upon my oath, and I trust I know what the nature of an oath is. Mr. Bonniface lives in the house, the prisoner did not acknowledge he was a servant of his; I cannot say I ever saw him act as such.</p>
<p>Jury. Is Lilley a house-keeper? - Yes, he is; I asked Lilley to come with me to the watch house, he went then, when I was shewing him down stairs to Delany, and coming to the place where he was generally confined, he drew back, and said you want to lock me up; Delany called me up, I cannot recollect the conversation; but he said before the watch-house keeper, he gave me leave to take a little bit; upon that the watch-house keeper thought fit to lock him up; Mr. Bonniface asked the prisoners how they could do such a thing; and they said it was the first time, and they hoped he would forgive them.</p>
<p>Had you offered them any favour? - No, none, he only said, they must take the course of Justice.</p>

<p>My Lord, and Gentlemen of the Jury,</p>
<p>As I was coming from my work, to go home to breakfast I was overtaken by two young men, whom I knew; as they were going my way, we agreed to go together. but when we came to Mr. Holcomb's house, the young men said they must call for some things; one of them took a key out of his pocket and opened the door, they went in, and desired me to follow them, saying they should not stay a minute; so I went in with them, not thinking any harm, they went up stairs, and I followed them, but soon after we were up stairs, the two young men ran away and several people came up and took me into custody, saying I was going to rob the house. My Lord and Gentlemen, I gave information who the two men were, that took me into the house; I live with my father and mother, and always work hard for my living, and ever bore the character of an honest lad. As that is the truth, and I am totally innocent of the affair, I hope your Lordship and the Gentlemen of the Jury will take

<p>Court. Did you lock your door, when you went out? - Yes, I locked the door of the back parlour, these things were lost from the front parlour; I put the key on a cupboard close by the back parlour door, there is a way from the back parlour to the front parlour; the key was not visible to any person.</p>
<p>Did you see him come out of the parlour? - No, out of the street door, he had a brown apron on. He was taken three hours afterwards, and taken to Justice Wilmot's office, the door was not broke, nor the lock; it was opened with my key; it was in the door when I came back, and the door open, I knew him again directly, his hand was bound up; I observed it when he came out of the house.</p>
<p>Mr. Garrow, Prisoner's Counsel. You was alarmed? - Yes, I trembled very much, I could hardly contain myself; I went to Justice Wilmot's, and saw Armstrong and Shakeshaft.</p>
<p>Did not they tell you they would not seek for the prisoners unless they had two guineas? - Yes, one of them did.</p>
<p>How was the man dressed, when he came out of your house? - In a greenish striped great coat very long; he had a brown jacket on when he was taken; the officers sent for me, and said they had got the persons I wanted, and I must come and swear to them.</p>
<p>When you went out you left Mrs. Thomas and Mrs. Newman; did you leave any body else? - I don't know.</p>
<p>How does your door open? - By a latch and a brass knob, the cupboard where I put the key, is a good way down the passage.</p>
<p>Are your other lodgers here? - No.</p>

<p>I am servant to Mr. Dobson in Bishopsgate street, I went to Mr. Brookes's on Friday, the 12th June, to ring the bell for my pots, I rung it and turned round and saw Parrott in the parlour, he was standing in the middle of the room, I did not see him do any thing; I went to next door, and he came out with two pint pots in his hand, and gave them to me, they were not mine, and I gave him them again. He stood at the door some time afterwards; I went away, and saw no more, till Mrs. Brookes came and told me the house was robbed; he was dressed in a striped green coat, and his hand bound up.</p>
<p>Mr. Garrow. Do you know Shakeshaft and Armstrong? - Yes, I never spoke to them, till I saw them yesterday, since I saw them at the justices; I know nothing of the reward, they said nothing to me about it till yesterday, and one of them told me I was to come as a witness, and stick to my text; that was before we went to the Grand Jury.</p>
