<p>Q.What is the value of them? - A.About 2l.</p>
<p>Prosecutor. They are not worth so much, my Lord; they are my property; some of them I had not had in from the country above three weeks; the prisoner used to come two or three times a day to my house.</p>
<p>Q. Where did you use to deposit them? - A. They used to lie open on the counter.</p>
<p>The prisoner put in a written defence, stating, that she had received the hats from the prosecutor's shopman, who was his brother-in-law; that she bought one of them; that he gave her the children's hats, telling her they were old shopkeepers; that she had the others to line and bind, as would appear from the book in which the shopman entered every thing, and which she had to produce.</p>
<p>Q.(To Pedder.) Where is your shopman now? - A. He is gone for a soldier; he enlisted into the
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180310260012"/>first regiment of Surrey militia, and is now at camp near Ashford, in Kent.</p>
<p>Q. Did you part with him for any dishonesty? - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. Were the children's hats old shopkeepers? - A. No, some of them had not been in three weeks.(The prisoner produced a book.)</p>
<p>Prisoner. Here is an entry in the book of a child's white had lined.</p>
<p>Q.(To Pedder.) Then you see the prisoner had had one child's white hat to line? - A. It appears so from this entry; it is a book that she herself keeps, and upon the return of the goods they are entered in the book.</p>
<p>Q. Then these hats might have been delivered to her, and there would be no entry of them in the book, because they have not found their way back again? - A. They were not put out with my knowledge.

<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Alley. Q. I believe this poor woman has a husband who is a maniac? - A. She has a husband who is deranged, and two children.(The officer produced the leather, which was identified by the prosecutor).</p>
<p>Mr. Alley. Q. This leather was not in your shop, but in the cellar? - A. No, it was not exposed for sale.</p>
<p>Court. Q. Is your cellar a part of your shop? - A. We consider it so, because we keep in it articles for sale as well as articles not for sale; this leather is not manufactured, it is not in a saleable condition.</p>
<p>The prisoner did not say any thing in her defence.

<persName id="t18031026-30-person233">Bulkeley</persName> ; I searched him, and found in his pocket a key that opened Mr. Plowden's door; I then went to General

<p>Mr. Harrison. Mr. Plowden's house belongs to General Bulkeley, his name is Felix, he is the landlord of it; I don't know that the lead belongs to General Bulkeley; the prisoner has worked for me four or five years, I always found him very honest.</p>
