I have known the prisoner a twelvemonth; he was a pork-butcher in Golden-lane till within these three months; he bears a very honest character.</p>

<p>Prisoner Green. Q. Were the garret windows open or shut when you went into the room? - A. Shut; when I came up to the door, Green let me in, while his partner was shutting the window, I found them both all over dirt, as if they had been at work; Green lodged in the room.</p>
<p>- WEDBY sworn. - I live at No. 2: I was alarmed on the 14th of November that there were thieves breaking into my garret-window, I went up, and learnt that a man had gone past the garret-window to No. 3; I then went to No. 3, and spoke to Mrs. Kennedy who keeps the house, it is a house of ill fame: I asked her who she had got in the garret; she said her brother was gone up; I went up and saw the last witness; one of the prisoners was sitting on the bed, and the other standing by his side; Kennedy asked them what they had been at; Kennedy went out at the window to No. 3, and called to me to detain those that were in the room: Mrs. Kennedy came up, and seeing the bed rather rumpled she turned down the bed-clothes, and there discovered the lead; I immediately went for two officers, and brought them with me, I gave charge of them; Green did not lodge there, he is a married man; it is a house of ill fame, and he might lodge there as any other man might do; he declared his innocence to the last: and when I first entered the room, he said, if there is any thing amiss, here I am, as innocent as a child unborn.</p>

<p>Q. (To Kennedy.) Did Green oppose your coming into the room? - A. Yes; he said I had no business there.</p>
<p>Q. How came you to say he lodged there? - A. He took the key up stairs just before, and wished me a good night, saying he was going to bed; he went up about six o'clock, as nigh as I can guess, and said he was going to bed; I had not seen Griffiths before.</p>

Before they were gone out of the shop, Goddard came in, and asked for a yard of cloth, which she paid eleven pence for; when they were gone, we missed a piece of print.</p>
<p>Q. What became of the persons? - A. The man and Price went up North-street, and Goddard the other way; I followed Price, and said, my sister wanted to speak to her about the money they left on the print; she returned with me down the street, and the man went on; she then said, she would go back to her son; I said, I would go with her; we turned to the City-road, and as she was near the gutter, I looked down, and observed she kept her hand close down on her pocket-hole; I then drew back, and saw the print in her hand through her pocket-hole. I then charged her with the robbery; she dropped it to the ground; I held her fast with one hand, and picked the print up with the other; and, with assistance, took her back. My sister is not here, having lately been brought to-bed.</p>
<p>Q. Did Goddard speak to the man or woman? - A. No, I did not observe her speak to either of them; I observed nothing further between them than Price and the man speak to her in the street, and she came into the shop after them about five minutes.</p>

Yes, I had it in both arms close to my breast, because it was a large bundle; I screamed, and Mr. Holloway came out; the prisoners ran away, and Mr. Holloway ran after them; he could not catch them, and then he took me in, and wrote a letter to Mr. Wilson, where Mr. Penn lived. The next day I went with Brown and Elby to look after them, and we met them in Rose-lane, Spital-fields, leading towards Whitechapel; I told Mr. Brown it was them that took the bundle from me; they heard me say so, and they both ran away, and got into the broad place.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure those are the two boys? - A. Yes, I am certain of it, I have no doubt; I saw Pounceford at the doctor's shop, where it was very light, and I could see his face; I have not the least doubt they are the persons; I saw Green at a baker's shop in the Curtain-road, and I saw him at the public-house door; every light place I came to, I looked at their faces.</p>
<p>Q. What made you look so particularly at their faces? - A. They would keep up with me, and wanted to carry my bundle; when I came out of the public-house, they were waiting for me; I ran away, and they caught me at Vinegar-yard; I am perfectly sure they are the same persons.</p>

I belong to the Public-Office, Shadwell: On the 21st of October I heard of the robbery, and sent for the boy, and asked him if he should know the persons again; he said, yes; I took him to the broad place where these kind of people toss up in a morning. In Rose-lane we passed the two prisoners; Elby was before me, and the boy behind; the boy said, here they are, both of them; upon that, they both ran away; we pursued them into the broad place, where there were, I suppose, twenty or thirty of these sort of people, and there we lost sight of the prisoners; I then had a private information of them, and I went to a private lodging in Wentworth-street, on the 25th of November, in company with Elby, and apprehended them both; they were in bed, in two different garrets; the servant went up first, and said, George, open the door, here is a gentleman wants to see you; he would not open the door, and I told him I would break it open; he then jumped out of bed, and unbolted the door; he was going into bed again, and I said, come, come, put on your clothes, I want you; I knew him immediately to be the person who ran away from me on the 21st; then I made the other get up, and open his door; the doors are close together; he said, Mr. Brown, do you want me too? he knew me very well; I told him, yes; we secured them, and brought them before the Magistrate. I knew them both before, and I am sure they are the same persons I had seen in Rose-lane; I took particular notice of the shortest, being very much pock-marked; they acknowledged running away from me in Rose-lane.</p>
