<p>Mr. Garrow. What time did you send him to Cross's with the lead? - He went himself.</p>
<p>Why, do you mean to say he went without your consent? - By my consent as well as the rest.</p>
<p>Was not he sent to Cross's in order to lay a trap, and to induce them to buy this, in order to prosecute them? - I beg your pardon; it is wrong; the lead had been already stolen, but not moved from the premises: I never gave him any consent.</p>
<p>Did you refuse the consent? - No, Sir, I did not: I believe there were half a dozen went with him.</p>
<p>How long did you allow him to lay the trap before you went down to spring on the game? - I really do not understand your cramp words; I believe it might be half an hour: nobody went in with him: I suppose it might be five minutes before I went in.</p>

<p>Was it agreed among you all that the boy should take the lead from the place where he left it, and carry it to the prisoner to sell? - I cannot tell whether it was agreed; it was not by me: I did not hear what passed; but I heard Mr. Foster ask him whether he thought Mrs. Cross would buy the lead; and upon that the boy was sent to the prisoner.</p>
<p>Court. Gentlemen of the jury, originally the lead was stolen, therefore the person who stole it might be convicted of felony; but the lead actually gets to the possession of the right owner; then there is a scheme, in which this prosecutor is a party, that the lead should be carried to this woman to sell; the lead did not come to her in the character of stolen goods: you must acquit the prisoner: as to her morality, I can say nothing at all to that.</p>

<p>Where did you live in June last? - In Mark-lane.</p>
<p>With whom? - Mr. Thornton.</p>
<p>Who did you live with on the 15th of June last? - (No answer.)</p>
<p>Why do not you answer the question, woman; who did you live with on the 15th of June last? - I cannot tell.</p>
<p>Did you ever rent a house in your life? - No, Sir; I rented a room at Mr. Murphy's, in Blue Anchor-court.</p>
<p>Did Murphy live in the house? - She did not live in my house.</p>
<p>Did she live in any other part of that house? - No.</p>
<p>Where did she live? - She lived in the top of the court.</p>
<p>What part of the house was your room in: how many rooms did the house consist of? - Only one.</p>
<p>Mr. Garrow, Prisoners Counsel. How long had Mrs. Murphy had you out of service? - I had been out of place about a fortnight.</p>
<p>She received the money you got, and
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="179007070016"/>furnished you this place to receive men in: we all know Mrs. Murphy very well? - I only paid half-a-crown a week for the room.</p>
<p>Court. Did you pay her any thing else in the course of the week? - No, Sir.</p>
<p>How many houses were there consisting of one room each only? - It was not only one room.</p>
<p>Who rented the other? - There was no other room in my part, but my room.</p>
<p>How many rooms were there in the whole? - It was only one.</p>
<p>Had you a bed in that room? - Yes.</p>
<p>Had you one door or two? - Two doors: there was an entry: my room was on the right hand side, one pair of stairs.</p>
<p>Court to Jury. Gentlemen, you are trying these two prisoners for their lives; the consequence of which is, that if they are convicted there will be eighty pounds reward: I cannot make out that she has any thing like a dwelling-house.</p>
<p>Did you lose any thing? - I lost a pair of stays.</p>
<p>When? - The 15th of last month, which was Tuesday last.</p>
<p>Where were they taken from? - Out of my room, off the tea table; between eleven and twelve in the night.</p>
<p>How do you know they were taken at that time? - Because I went to light my candle.</p>
<p>Mr. Garrow. Here is her own information; she says she rents a room of Mrs. Murphy, in Blue Anchor-yard.</p>
<p>Court. Had you been abed before that time? - No.</p>
<p>What time did you come into that house: where had you been? - To see my friends: my stays were on the table: I was back by ten.</p>
<p>Where were you from ten till eleven? - I sat at the front door, out in the street, at Mrs. Murphy's, at the green stall; that was not in the court.</p>
<p>Who took your stays away? - I cannot tell who it was; I did not see them; I have seen the stays since; I swore to them at the justice's.</p>
<p>Mr. Garrow. You have been one of Mrs. Murphy's girls about three weeks? - Yes.</p>
<p>How long have you been acquainted with Mr. Dawson, the thief-taker? - I did not know any thing of him; but I tried some how or other.</p>
<p>When did Dawson tell you to swear that you rented a house? - He did not tell me to swear it.</p>
<p>Who told you? - Nobody.</p>
<p>Who told you there would be eighty pounds to be divided among you, if you hanged these girls? - Nobody.</p>
<p>These girls lived near you? - Yes, in the same court.</p>
<p>Who was the man that had been in the room with you that evening, that stole the three shillings and six-pence? - There was no man stole three shillings and six-pence.</p>
<p>Did you never say that a man had lain with you that night, who had robbed you of three shillings and six-pence? - No, Sir.</p>
<p>Did you, or did you not? - No, Sir.</p>
<p>You never said so to any body? - No.</p>
<p>One of these girls was standing with you at the door, when you left your stays on the table? - Yes,

<p>I asked him where he was going with it; he gave me no answer; but threw it into my arms, and made through the mob, as fast as he could: I caught the bundle: I lost sight of him, though I struck him several times on the head with my stick; he was taken on the 7th of June by Lucy; I saw him in custody: Lucy delivered him to me; I left the bundle at a grocer's shop, and went for it in two or three days; I know it is the same, by being torn: I left it afterwards at the White Bear, Barbican, a day, or two, till I could find out a proper owner for it; I got the same bundle again from there, and Mr. Gilding owned it.</p>
