I left my house on Sunday the 14th of August, about six in the afternoon, it was then safe; there was no person in my apartments, which are separate from the other parts of the house, and has a different entrance; it is a house let out in different tenements; the landlord does not reside in it; I left my house, and double locked the door about five, or half past five, and all my windows. I returned about a quarter past nine, or before ten, it was rather dark, not quite dark, I could discern people so as to know them. When I came up to my door a woman stood upon the step, I saw the prisoner in the shop; I immediately seized him, and took him with assistance to the Talbot; when he was searched there nothing was found upon him, but in the struggle I took a child's skirt and stays from him. I returned from the Talbot inn, and I got a lodger to stand at my door while I went to the Talbot. I found my drawers broke open by violence, I lost a 10 l. bank note, and about 20 l. in cash, gold and silver, some guineas, some half guineas, crowns and shillings. I have never recovered any part of my property. There was violence on the shop door, the lock appeared to be picked.</p>
<p>Mr. Knowlys, Prisoner's Counsel, Do you sleep at the Canns in Holborn? - No.</p>
<p>Who is it lets the apartments to you in Gray's inn-lane? - No one, I am the householder, I let out the apartments.</p>
<p>Who is your landlord? - Mr. Edmonds, two doors from me.</p>
<p>You found a woman at the door, she went away on your coming up? - Yes.</p>
<p>Did you say any thing about the stays at the Talbot? - I am not certain.</p>
<p>Do you know a man of the name of Turner? - Yes, very slightly.</p>

<p>I am the wife of the last witness; I come to prove the property. (A child's skirt produced.) I have the fellow to this skirt, it is my property, I know it by being my own work; it was kept in a drawer that was broke open. I do not know when I saw it before, but I believe a week before; the value of it is about 18 d. the skirt and stays are attached to each other.</p>
<p>Mr. Garrow. Do you call these things skirt and stay, or stay and skirt? - Sometimes one and sometimes the other, they are washed separate, but worn together.</p>
<p>I suppose you call the thing which a child wears under its chin in the month a pair of stays? - No, I do not, I call it a stay.</p>
<p>(Mr. Garrow objected to the naming of the stays and skirt together, and said the indictment was erroneous. The Court overruled the objection.)</p>

<p>Mr. Alderman Watson. Do you ever sell any of these goods, and let them go out of your shop with the mark upon them? - Yes, I dare say we do sometimes on the shawls.

These shawls have the private mark of Anstie and Baker, I cannot

<p>Welch. Here is my mark on two of the three pieces, which proves to me to a certainty that at some time I have received this piece from Anstie and Baker: it is made by me in chalk, it is a hasty way to mark hundreds and thousands. A. B. I recollect no other customers whose names begin so, but Anstie and Baker; the other piece has an A. only, which is not so satisfactory.</p>

I then got into bed and fell asleep; I was on the chair when they went away. The things were in a bag on the chair, he took the things, bag and all. I saw the prisoner on board his majesty's ship Monarch; I belonged to her five years, he was on board five or six months. I went to St. Catherine's the day after I lost my things, I catched the prisoner by the arm, it was between seven and eight o'clock at night; he had nothing of mine about him; he made his escape. This gentleman found a knife on him, I did not examine his pockets myself; I have found nothing but my knife.</p>

Randall was on my side, and I gave him the money in the indictment, and a three-penny or four-penny piece, some thing of that kind, and a silver watch in a double case, and a metal chain; then they rode off. They were with me not above a minute or two, I should suppose, but a very short time; I saw them again the Tuesday week after the robbery. Each of them had a pistol, they behaved exceedingly well, as a man could expect to be robbed, only threatning the horse. I have no doubt of the men, I saw them at Bow-street.</p>
<p>Mr. Garrow, Prisoner Randall's Counsel. What dress did you see Randall in when he was at Bow-street? - A drab coloured kind of coat, the coat he has on now, apparently to me the coat he had on at the time he was stopped.</p>
<p>So you swore at that time? - I judged it so.</p>
<p>It is by that principally that you enable yourself to swear to him? - No, Sir; I have a strong recollection of his face.</p>
<p>You had never seen either of the persons who robbed you before? - Never to my knowledge.</p>
<p>Court. Was any body with you? - My brother and two little girls.</p>
<p>Your children are young children, I suppose? - Yes.</p>
<p>Are they here? - No, the one is about ten, the other six or seven.</p>
