<p>I am a watchman in St. Martin's in the Fields; I cried the hour of one o'clock, and I came up Ivory-lane, I was going down the hour of half after one, and I was speaking to a brother watchman, and I heard a noise down Ivory-lane, I went down the lane, and I saw the prosecutor laying on his back, and this prisoner at the bar was across him, and taking his watch from him, she had taken the money from him, she seeing me flew up and made off to me, and I catched her in my arms, and some porters picked up the prosecutor and brought him up to me while I had got the prisoner in my arms, and the prosecutor said that that was the woman that robbed him; no, says she, it is the other girl that robbed him, and gave me the money; with that she put her hand into her pocket, and brought some silver out, and I took the silver out of her hand, and put my hand into her pocket and took the rest.</p>
<p>Jury. How much did you take out? - I took a guinea and a half, and some silver, and a steel chain.</p>
<p>Court. What did you take from her hand? - Six shillings and six-pence in silver, and a handkerchief out of her bosom. Then I took her to the watch-house.</p>
<p>Court. Is it a linen handkerchief?</p>
<p>Prosecutor. It is.</p>
<p>Herbert. I have kept the property from that time to this. (Produces the chain and handkerchief) the money I have forgot and left at home.</p>
<p>Court. Was this man very drunk? - Yes, he was so that he did not know what he was about at all.</p>
<p>Q. Was there any resistance between the girl and him? - Yes, there was great resistance for they took and tore him all down the face. The first thing that I saw was, that she was across him, and trying to get the watch from him.</p>
<p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="179306260004"/>Q. I want to know what they did to him before they took the watch from him? - They took and tore him all down the face, and made him bleed; I saw the prisoner strike him, when I was coming down he was on the ground, and when he was crying out this girl struck him about the face, and held his mouth, he struggled and put his hand as well as he could to his watch, when he found they were pulling his watch out.</p>
<p>Q. By what light did you see this? - By the light of the porters coming to market with their lanthorns.</p>

<p>Q. Was there any other woman with her? - There were two other women with her.</p>
<p>Court to Prosecutor. What sort of a chain was this you lost? - A steel chain belonging to a woman's watch, with a hook to it; I can swear to the chain and the handkerchief; I have another like it in my pocket, there is no letter or name on it I had the chain in my waistcoat pocket for to wear it bright, because it was got rusty; I have had it a great many years; there is no particular mark.</p>
<p>Prisoner. My lord about half after one o'clock this gentleman took me from one public house to another to drink with him; we drank five or six pints of cider, and three glasses of gin, and he left me this watch chain and his handkerchief; coming along this place he fell down; the porters were going to Covent-garden market, and the money sell out of his pocket, and I picked up the gold; he had not a farthingworth of silver about him; it was my own silver; I have no witness.</p>
<p>Jury to Herbert. Did you see her take the chain out of his pocket? - I saw it taken from his person.</p>
<p>Q. How far was you off when you saw this? - Not as far as I am from her now.</p>
<p>Q. I think you said that you saw blows that she struck? - I did.</p>

<p>Q. Can you tell now about what time you lost the ring? - I really cannot, it must have been within three months of this time, because I had seen it in the shop; I certainly had not sold it, because it is so particular a ring, I should have known if it had been sold, I examined the person who brought it how he came by it, and he referred me to another person of the name of Miller in Gerrard-street; I went to Mr. Miller's to see in what way he came by it, and he referred me to the prisoner at the bar; I went to him, and examined him how he came by it; he said that a person of the name of Williams gave it to him to sell, and that he was gone to Birmingham where he lived; shortly after he said, if we would let him go he would endeavour to find the person; as his account was not satisfactory, I ordered the constable to take charge, and the next day when he came before the magistrate, he told another story, he said he had it from a person of the name Wheeler who gave it him to sell.</p>

<p>Q. Where did Wheeler live? - I don't know.</p>

<p>Q. How do you know it was Wheeler? - I was told it was.</p>

<p>I was at the Adam and Eve when the ring was offered to sale; Mr. Thybaut was sitting there, and they were shewing a ring, I should not know it if I was to see it.</p>
<p>Court to Davis. Do you know the prisoner? - I have some distant recollection of seeing him, but not to speak positively, I think I have seen him in our shop, but I am not positive of that.</p>
<p>Court to Jones. You said his person and voice was familiar to you? - I do believe I have seen him in our shop at the time I tell you, but at the same time I do not swear positively to the fact, but it could not be any where else but in the shop.</p>

<p>Q. Did you leave any body at work when you went away? - There was only the prisoner and me at work; just before we went away my mistress came up stairs, the prisoner asked her to lend him two shillings; she told him she had not got two shillings, she would let him have eighteen-pence, I had got on my shoes, he was buckling up his shoes; I went down first, my mistress followed me, and he followed her last; as soon as she came to the bottom of the stairs, she begged we would both come to work early in the morning as the work was in a great hurry; we said we would sooner than usual; as soon as I got out into Saville-street I says to the prisoner, I forgot to take my watch: we had some discourse about it; I said I suppose it will be safe enough by the morning; there are two young men, says he, that sleeps in the room, they will swear it is a death watch in the night; we went on all the way through Leicester-fields together; this was the Monday evening which was our club night in Long-acre, and there he said he had got a pair of scissurs grinding at Russel-court, says he, if you will go to the club I will come there presently; he went away, and I went to the house of call, and found he did not come; I related the circumstance to some young men that were there, they said they were afraid I was done out of my watch; I got up early in the morning and went to work, and I asked one of the young men if they had seen my watch that I had left the last night?</p>
<p>Q. Did you find your watch there? - No, I asked them if they had let that irishman come and take away the watch? they said no, he had not been back.</p>
<p>Q. Were they in the room when you went away? - No, The prisoner never came back to the place afterwards, left the house of call, and never was seen afterwards till I took him up for this, when I was carrying some clothes home for my master last Saturday fortnight, this that I speak of was on the 6th of May, I was in the London-road, St. George's-fields, just before we came to the Romish Chapel, the man and me run against each other, I put my hand against his breast to prevent him running against me, and I recollected his face again, I said, how do you do my friend? don't you recollect when you and me worked together in
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="179306260014"/>Saville-court? he said, yes; do not you recollect that I left my watch there? he said, yes; and don't you recollect that you took it away from me? he then said he would make me pay for charging him with a robbery in the street, and he asked me why I detained him? I told him I should not let him go till we had a hearing before a magistrate; this was Saturday evening, I could not get a constable, and he said he would be damned if I should put him into the watch-house, and keep him there all night, if I had any charge against him he would go to any magistrate with me, he would go to Bow-street or any where; I told him it was too late; at last he consented to go to a constable with me, and we went on, and I met a young man who assisted me, and we took him to a lock up house, facing the New Goal in the Borough, and when I got there I gave charge of him, and related the story, and he was examined, and asked where he worked? and he told two or three different stories, and they said they were sure he was guilty; at last I had a coach and brought him to St. Andrew's watch-house, and gave charge of him at the watch-house, and the watchmen searched his pockets; in his pocket was found several duplicates and a piece of a chain of a watch; I told him that piece of a chain belonged to my watch; he said I was a damned liar, for he had it given him in Birmingham a year and a half ago; among the duplicates was found the duplicate of one watch; one of the officers belonging to St. Andrew's watch-house went with me to the pawnbroker's to examine, but the watch was not mine; we came back to St. Andrew's watch-house, and gave charge of him and he was taken to Giltspur-street Compter, On Sunday some woman came to my lodging and said, if I would go to Giltspur-street Compter, I might hear of my watch; when I came home my landlord told me; I said it was too late that night; I went in the morning; when I came he said he only sent for me to know what the devil I meant by leaving him there; I told him he must stay till he had a hearing, and so I parted from him; when we went to Guildhall his wife came to me and said if I would not hurt her husband she would tell me where the watch was; the woman that went with me, took me to the house of this gentleman Mr. Barney of Old Lukener's-lane; when I came there Mr. Barney was not at home; the woman and me went to Bow-street; I had a warrant to search the lodging, but we could not find it there; Mr. Barney heard of it, and came on Tuesday morning and delivered up the watch.</p>

<p>I am an apprentice to Mr. Russel. Last Sunday was a fortnight I saw the man take hold of the shawl with his right hand.

<p>Q. Did you know him before? - No.</p>
<p>Q. Who was with you? - My master and mistress, and Mrs. Wall, and two young children. The man came out of the public house facing the coach, and came to the coach window, and said he would take the child out to help us from the coach, the coach broke down, and we were getting out, and he took the child out with the shawl on his neck; I saw him put his right hand and take the shawl off the child's neck, and he tied it up, and put it somewhere behind him; then I went down to the other side, because they could not get out that side; the child was taken out of the window, and Mrs. Wall said, Thomas, where is the shawl? I said that man has got it. So my master charged the watch with him.</p>
<p>Q. Had he still the child in his arms when you told them that he had got the shawl, or had they taken the child out of his arms? - I cannot say that.</p>
<p>Q. Then the man did stay some time with the child in his arms after he had taken it out of the window? - Yes. The watchman went after him, and he had the handkerchief in his hand, and he threw it way; I saw my master pick it up.</p>

<p>I hired the coach a little after two on Sunday morning the 8th of June, in Spur-street, Leicester-fields; the coach broke down, and from the said coach which was broke down, they handed the child out, the prisoner did; after that they were going to handle the bundles out, with that I said, no don't handle the bundles out we shall lose them; then after we got out of the coach I asked about the shawl, and Tom said, that man had got it; I said are you sure of it? he said, yes; then I charged the watch with him, and I saw him pull it from behind him, and throw it on the ground; and I picked it up. This is the same that I picked up, that I saw him throw down.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I took the child out of the coach, the coach was broke down; I delivered the child, and every thing, as far as I know, as I found it; I delivered the child as freely as I took it; I have got no witness; there was nobody there it was so early; I have lived in St. James's parish thirty-five years.</p>
<p>Mr. Russell. He bears an exceeding good character my lord, and I hope you will shew him mercy.</p>
<p>The prisoner called five witnesses who gave him an excellent character.</p>

<p>I am the book keeper at the Swan with Two Necks, Lad-lane; I know nothing at all except that this gentleman, the prisoner at the bar, came with this luggage, a deal box, an hair trunk, two bundles and two hat boxes; they are here; I saw them opened before the alderman. I should imagine there was two milk pots I should know again; I know the hair trunk.</p>
<p>Q. When did the prisoner come? - He came at a quarter past four on the 21st of June, on Friday, they were put in the Liverpool hole; I am sure the prisoner brought them with another man; the officer came about half past four, and I delivered them the same things, every thing as was brought by the prisoner.</p>
<p>Q. How soon did you see the prisoner after this? - I did not see him
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="179306260022"/>at all after he left the counting house; I never saw him any more till now, except before Mr. Alderman Curtis on Saturday, I believe the next day.</p>
<p>Q. Did you know him to be the same man then? - Yes, I did.</p>
<p>Mr. Peat. You never saw the man before that day he came to your house? - Never, and never saw him but once since, and that was before Mr. Alderman Curtis.</p>
<p>Q. He came with another person you say? - He did.</p>
<p>Q. Was there any woman with him? - There was not.</p>
<p>Q. All the goods were in the trunks, and packed up? - There was nothing loose, all packed up in the usual way.</p>
<p>Q. Do you happen to know who produced the keys of these trunks afterwards? - I cannot tell from whom they were taken.</p>
<p>Court to Goodman. What day was it he left your house? - On Tuesday.</p>
<p>- GREEN sworn.</p>
<p>I am the constable; I produce this property which was stopped at the inn, an hair trunk, a square deal box, a bundle, a hat box, and a bonnet box; I got them from the book keeper which was in the warehouse at the Swan with Two Necks, Lad-lane; it was last Friday week, about half after four, I have kept them ever since, I took them to a room, and locked them up, and kept the key in my possession; the deal box was locked, not the hair trunk.</p>
<p>Q. Did you get the key at any time? - Yes, I got the key from Mrs. Goodman.</p>
<p>Q. How many keys did she give you? - There were three keys she gave to James Hall and me.</p>
<p>Mr. Peat. You say the keys were produced by Mrs. Goodman? - Yes; I took the prisoner, and Mrs. Goodman with him by the side of one another in the tap of the Swan with Two Necks that day after I had stopped the property; the prisoner was in company with Mrs. Goodman, they were both together, had a pint of beer before them, and a small bundle before them, which I have here; here are nineteen check aprons, three muslin handkerchiefs, four linen shifts, one dimity petticoat, six other petticoats, one silk gown, &c. (The same as in the indictment.)</p>
<p>Mr. Peat. In fact there were several articles of female dress amongst them? - There was.</p>
<p>Court to Goodman. Did your wife stay in the house after the day he went? - She did not. I saw him about ten or eleven o'clock, and I asked him whether he had no work? he said he had work enough, and my wife went away between five and six; they both went on Tuesday,</p>
<p>Q. What articles can you speak with the most certainty to? - The milk pot, the punch ladle, and the counterpane.</p>
<p>Q. Did you miss the things before your wife went away? - No, I found the drawers were stripped almost quite; here are several sheets, I know here is a gown that I have seen on my wife's back, and a green bonnet, but I cannot say that they are marked in my name.</p>
<p>Q. Did she go away at the same time? - No, I never saw him after ten or eleven o'clock, and she went away between five or six; they both went on one; I missed the things the next morning about nine o'clock when I opened the drawers.</p>
<p>Mr. Peat. Then Mr. Goodman, your wife went away about five or six hours before the prisoner? - Yes.</p>

<p>I am a porter to the public house; I have seen the prisoner, he is a lodger there, I saw the prisoner on Tuesday as the wife was at tea in the afternoon, I saw him come out of the house with a shawl in his apron, and that box in his hand, I believe this to be the same shawl according to the best of my knowledge which the constable produces; that morning that he went away, the wife had said something to the husband concerning the pots, and as soon as the husband was gone he went up stairs immediately, and came down with these things.</p>
<p>Mr. Peat. You saw a shawl? - I did, and I have seen the shawl on her, and I believe it to be the same shawl I have seen on her.</p>
<p>Q. Was it wrapped up? - It was lapped over the bundle, what was inside I cannot tell.</p>
<p>Q. I suppose if you had seen that shawl at York you would have known it? - I am positive, you will do no good by cross examining me, because I have more behind.</p>
<p>JAMES HALI sworn.</p>
<p>When the prisoner and Mrs. Goodman was brought before alderman Curtis, I was in court, and I was desired to ask who had got the keys, and Mrs. Goodman replied that she had, and I was ordered to ask her for them; I did, and she gave me some, one of which opened this trunk, and they were both committed for this offence</p>
<p>Prisoner. Mrs. Goodman depended on me to do her justice, as she was going into the country, and desired me to put the things in in my own name.</p>

<p>I am a constable, I belong to the Police office in Queen-square; I found him in the kitchen of this gentleman on Friday, I searched him and found the duplicate of the hat in his pocket.</p>
<p>Prisoner. By all means I had a right to have the duplicate of the hat I had bought in the Hay-market, after paying four shillings and six pence for it, because they had a suspicion of this hat they conceived it must be that gentleman's there; I never meddled with the hat, and they cannot say that I did, except they for swear themselves. I have a few words to say. I brought this hat of a jew in the Haymarket, and gave four shillings and sixpence for it, he had told me his name was Shepherd, and that he lived in Rosemary-lane; in the afternoon afterwards I pawned it for three shillings.</p>

I have no witnesses because I expected it would have been made up, because I sent a person to Mr. Fossit yesterday morning, and he said it would come to nothing.</p>

About nine o'clock at night I generally go to look at the horse, and then I found it gone, I made an enquiry and I found it at one Mr. Bishop's stables the Tuesday following; Mr. Bishop's stables is in St. Giles's; it was a sprightly looking gelding, with two white heels, I believe the bridle and saddle was gone; it was brown, I had it about a fortnight before I lost it as near as I can guess.</p>
<p>Q. Can you swear that the gelding you saw in Bishop's stable was your gelding? - Yes, I have no doubt about it.</p>
<p>Q. Did you find your bridle and saddle there too? - No, I had that sent home about a fortnight or three weeks after, by a woman; when I found the horse in Mr. Bishop's stable I told him to take care of it, and not to part with it; it was my horse, I had lost it, and I went and got an officer to demand it, to take my property, I went to Bow-street and acquainted them that Mr. Bishop had my horse that was lost, and the gentlemen there summoned him and heard the story, and when I told the story one of them ordered him to give me my horse again, and I had my horse again.</p>
<p>Mr. Knapp. So you lost this horse? - Lost which horse?</p>
<p>Q. This horse of your's? - Yes.</p>

The prisoner came into my shop on Monday the 10th of June, between seven and eight o'clock in the evening, as I had a suspicion of her I had the muslins counted previous to her coming into the shop; my young man saw her at the window, I desired him to count the muslins in the wrapper that she was frequently asking to look at; I had two young men, servants in the shop, my wife and myself; she asked me to look at some muslins the same as she had before; she was in our shop the Friday before; one of the young men went to her, and asked her what she wanted? his name is

<p>Q. Was there any other woman near? - Not near, there were others in the shop, she had on a black silk cloak, but whether she dropped them from her cloak or petticoat I cannot exactly say, they were concealed somewhere about her.</p>

<p>I am a constable of Hatton-garden; I saw nothing of the robbery; I apprehended the prisoner on Saturday last in the parish of Clerkenwell, near Clerkenwell Prison; I examined her, and found a guinea and a half in gold, and eleven shillings and six-pence in silver, good and bad; six-pennyworth of copper farthings and half pence; two small shut knives, commonly called pen knives, both clasp knives; fifteen duplicates; but they did not lead to any thing as I have understood; and a box key; I found two half crowns, one bad one.</p>
<p>Court to Shifton. Are any shillings marked? - No.</p>
<p>Q. Can you speak to any half-pence? - No, I can speak to the clasp knife, I know it by the wear; I had it two years, there is no mark particularly, but the person who ground it last put S. or Shipton on it, I don't know which, the maker's name is Charwood.</p>

<p>Prisoner. Between eleven and twelve o'clock I was walking up Holborn, and another young woman with me, I met this gentleman and a tall thin young lad, and I spoke to the young lad that was with the gentleman, and the other young woman spoke to that gentleman; says she to me, shall we all go home to your room? no, says I, my landlady don't like it. O, says she, she will be in bed. We went to my room, and the gentleman gave me six pence to get something to drink; he did not chuse me, he liked the other young woman best; so I asked him for a trifle more; he gave half a crown and a shilling to get some rum, and I went down stairs, and left the other young woman with him; the other young man went off before we were at the top of the stairs, and said to me let me change hats with him, he is quite in liquor, he will not know it. I suppose this man robbed him, I know he was nothing better that a pickpocket, I suppose he robbed him, and then wanted to get rid of him.</p>

<p>I was the officer of the night of Whitecross-street liberty, in the parish of St. Luke's, on Tuesday night; with that about four o'clock we go off from Duty; I live about five doors from the watch-house; just as I turned myself to knock at my door I saw the prisoner at the bar with a flag basket, and heaving it on his shoulder, then his face was towards me; directly he saw me he turned round, and went up a place called Playhouse-yard; I went after him; and overtook him just as he got into Golden-lane, says I, holloo, what have got here? you have been stealing lead; no, says he, I have not; says I, whatever it is I must see it; I knocked my stick against it, he said it was a bit of copper he had found in Mr. Baker's fields; he put it down, and wanted me to take it, and let him run away; for God's sake, says he, do; no, says I, I shall not; I took him to the cage, and went to Mr. Baker's and Mr. Baker sent for a coppersmith, and it was matched.</p>
<p>Q. How far was this from Baker's field that you saw the man with the basket on his shoulder? - Better that a quarter of a mile.</p>
<p>Q. Did you know the man before? - I knew him by sight, I knew him to be a bricklayer, I had seen him before, and he knew me.</p>

<p>Mr. Baker came to me yesterday morning, and told me he had lost some copper, and some copper was found; I told him if it came off from his houses I could be sure to tell; I went and matched it directly to one of his houses; the nail holes and every thing it fitted exactly with the place where some copper had been put on the house.</p>
<p>Q. Can you undertake to say that that was part of the property that was put on Baker's houses? - Yes, I will be upon my oath it was, it was a gutter.</p>
<p>Q. Was it nailed or fixed on? - It was.</p>
<p>Q. Did you fix it on? - My man did.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see it before it was fixed on? - I have looked at my books, and it answers exactly to the measurement; there had been a part taken before from the house adjoining, the houses were both of a size, and each took a quantity of copper alike.</p>
<p>Q. If I understand you right a part of the copper which had been put on the gutter of one house was taken away, and a part left? - This that is now produced is what was taken from the whole of one house; there had been some taken away from the adjoining house sometime before.</p>
<p>Q. Did you try whether it would fit the gully holes of the other house? - It would not; it did not go the right way for the current of the water; we value it at twenty shillings now; but it will cost Mr. Baker more than two guineas to replace it again.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I found it in the fields laying in three pieces, and that bit of a bag lay by it; and I took it and put it in my basket, and took it away; I work for

<p>Q. Had you known him before? - I had not, but I am positive it is the same, he was in the shop for the space of twenty minutes; I shewed him the watch; he did not approve of that watch; he desired to look at another that was marked three guineas, which I shewed him also; he did not approve of that; I shewed him another which was marked three guineas; then he asked to look at a metal watch; the three first were silver watches, I shewed him a metal watch; he did not approve of it; then after some hesitation he agreed for the first I shewed him, for which he was to give three guineas; he desired then to look at a chain; I shewed him two chains, a steel one and a metal one, and he did not approve of either of
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="179306260043"/>the two chains, he said there was a particular chain in the corner of the window which he should like to look at; at this time I had put up two of the watches out of the five which I shewed him first, and there remained three on the counter; when I turned myself about he said there was a chain which he would wish to look at, and he said he would go to the outside and point to it, he went outside to point to it as I thought, and I turned myself about and missed the watch, and the prisoner, and not seeing the prisoner I jumped over the counter to go into the street, and I could see nothing of the prisoner. Hearing of a robbery of the same nature I attended at Bow-street, at the examination, and I knew the prisoner, on Monday evening last; he had on the very same dress as he had on at the time he came into our shop.</p>
<p>Q. You never found the watch? - Never.</p>
<p>Mr. Hosty. Did you see him take the watch off the counter? - No.</p>
<p>Court. Was there any body else in the shop? - Yes, but not at that part of the shop where the watches were shewn, there were customers pledging, and two or three more people of our own.</p>
<p>Mr. Hosty. How long was he in the shop? - A quarter of an hour or twenty minutes; I was principally engaged with him, I took particular notice of him when I took two of the watches to hang them up; I have no doubt as to his person.</p>
<p>Q. You say you took down five and put up two? - I did.</p>
<p>Q. There were other people in the shop? - They were, but not in that part of the shop, there is a projection in the shop.</p>
<p>Jury. Was there any counter between where the people were pledging and the prisoner? - There was not, there was a partition about the distance of two yards.</p>
<p>Court. Did any of the other people run away? - No.</p>

<p>Q. Was it on the 8th of October? - I do not rightly recollect, it was the same day the woman lent it me, I went from her house with it; he told me he was going to the ship that laid on the Keys, and if I would wait till he came back again he would bring me the cloak back again, and likewise give me a guinea; he asked me for it, and I pulled the cloak off my back and gave it him.</p>
<p>Q. Did you know him before? - No, never saw him with my eyes before. I was hired as a servant by Mrs. Bradbury, and by her desire I went with the man, and I followed him along the street with her cloak on.</p>
<p>Q. Had any thing been said about her cloak? - Yes, he was in the kitchen when Mrs. Bradbury gave it me, and put it on me.</p>
<p>Q. Did you understand he was to raise money on this cloak? - No, he asked me if I had any silver in my pocket? I told him no.</p>
<p>Q. Was he drunk or sober? - I really don't know, he seemed to be sober as far as I believe, he walked very steady; we did not hear of him for two or three days after, and then the cloak was advertized; I have seen it since in Mr. Hall's possession; I don't rightly call to mind what particular time, it was about a week ago or so, I cannot rightly tell.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure it was the same cloak that you gave to the prisoner? - Yes, The prisoner was taken soon after he left me, I did not see him that day; when he was taken he was taken before a magistrate, and I went, and he was committed; I did not see that he was any ways disguised in liquor at all.</p>

<p>About two o'clock on Friday the 8th of October last, the prisoner was brought into the Mansion House by another officer, on a charge of one Mr. Horne; at that time, I observed something stick out of his pocket, and I searched him, I was attending at the Mansion House, and this cloak was in his right hand coat pocket, I asked him whose it was? he said it was his wife's, she was coming out, and he was to meet her; by order of the Lord Mayor I advertized the cloak; about three days afterwards Mrs. Bradbury came and owned the cloak; I returned the cloak when I heard the man was going to Bedlam; the magistrate persuaded me; but I can swear to the cloak. Whilst he was in the Compter I went to see him, because they said it was not safe for any body to go near him, as he had bit some of the prisoners? (The cloak produced and deposed to.)</p>
<p>Court to Mrs. Bradbury. How long had you been acquainted with this man? - I never saw him before that day; we are bakers, and
