On the Saturday it was in the same situation; I went to look again on Monday morning, and found the bag filled, in another place a little farther; it was a sack that would hold a bushel; it was pretty near full of split beans.</p>
<p>Q. Had the prisoner access to this place? - A. Yes, constantly, the beans were kept there in a little room: On Tuesday, at near eleven o'clock, the prisoner came in with his cart; he went into the stable, and came out again in about two minutes with a tarpauling; I perceived he had something concealed in the tarpauling by the bulk; he put it into his cart, and I gave information to Mr. Viner; the prisoner went away, and I went to look in the stable, and missed the bag; I saw it again at the Office on the Saturday following; I knew it again by a patch near the bottom.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Peatt. Q. It was a very common thing for the prisoner to carry out bags with beans? - A. Yes, but not a single bushel.</p>
<p>Q. Mr. Viner has a great many bags? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. You do not know who put the bags there? - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. Other persons had access to this place besides the prisoner? - A. Yes.</p>

<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Peatt. Q. Did you never give directions to the carman to take beans with him to give the horses a taste on the road? - A. No, I never would have suffered such a thing.</p>

<p>Q.When did you see the prisoner at the bar? - A.About three o'clock, on Tuesday, the 11th of September, at the Duke's Head, at Belfont.</p>
<p>Q.Had he any thing with him at the time? - A. Only a horse.</p>
<p>Q. What kind of a horse? - A. A bay gelding.</p>
<p>Q.Look at the prisoner at the bar; are you sure he is the man that had that bay gelding with him? - A. Yes, he offered it to me for sale.</p>
<p>Q.What price did he ask for it? - A. Eighteen guineas.</p>
<p>Q.Did the horse appear to you to have come any distance? - A. Yes, he appeared very much fatigued.</p>
<p>Q. Did he seem hot? - A. He had got cold, he was very sweaty, but it had cried on; I told him eighteen guineas was more than I could afford to give; he immediately told me I should have it for fourteen.</p>
<p>Q.Had you bid him a less price than eighteen guineas? - A.No; it was a very useful serviceable house; I asked him if it was his own; he said his father kept two breeding mares, and had bred this from one of them on the common.</p>
<p>Q. Did he say it was his father's? - A. No, he said it was his own property.</p>
<p>Q.Did you then buy him? - A. No.</p>
<p>Q.Did he say where his father lived? - A. Yes, he said he came near Hindon, but I cannot mention the place's name; I told him it appeared to me that he had stole the horse, and then he jumped up upon the horse, and was for making off; I caught hold of him, and he said I had no business with the horse nor him either; I seized him upon the horse, and gave charge of him to some other people, while I went over the way to the Magistrate's; I came back, and found the horse upon the same spot; the people had got the prisoner off.</p>
<p>Q. What was done with the horse? - A. The horse was taken into the stable, and the prisoner into the parlour, at the Duke's Head; I brought the horse up to Bow-street, and the prisoner was brought up by the coach.</p>
<p>Q. Were you present at Bow-street, when young Harding saw the horse? - A. No; the horse was put into the stable, and delivered to Mr. Harding, and he took him home with him.</p>
<p>Q. Is the person here who received the horse from you? - A. No; I saw the same horse last Sunday at Belfont; Mr. Harding rode him up, and sent for me.</p>
<p>Q.(To Harding.) Was the horse that Hankin saw you with on Sunday last, the same horse that you had missed out of the field? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. That was your father's horse? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q.(To Hankin.) Are you sure the horse you saw on Sunday last, was the same horse the prisoner offered you for sale? - A. I am positive of it.</p>
<p>Q.(To Harding.) Where did you get the horse from? - A. From a stable near Bow-street.</p>
<p>Q. What was the value of the horse? - A. I should suppose it was worth twenty guineas, or more.</p>
<p>Q. How far is it from Berwick St. Leonard to Belfont? - A. Eighty-four miles.</p>
<p>Q.(To Hankin.) Was he worth more than fourteen guineas? - A. I should not have liked to have given more than that, knowing nothing of him; I should have thought him worth that money.</p>

<p>Q.(To Prosecutor.) Look at that watch, and tell me whether that is your's? - A. It certainly is mine.</p>

<p>Prisoner's defence. I have known the prosecutor about two years, and he and the woman that he cohabits with are very much addicted to drinking; he gave me the watch for an improper connexion with me; I did not wish to have any concern with him; this man has very often tried to get the better of me, and he has taken half a guinea at a time out of my pocket, and has got very much in liquor with my money.</p>
<p>Q. How came you by the watch? - A. As I was going through Clement's lane he was beating and turning the woman out that he lives with; she called me, and said, Betsey, come in, for God's sake, I shall be murdered; I had been out a charing to Mrs. Large, and I had half a crown and some victuals for my day's work; I gave her some supper, and spent the half-crown and 3 s. more with her; I drank more than I ought, the more to my shame be it spoken, and I begged to lie down, and the old man, the prosecutor, said to me, here, take this watch; he wanted to have connexion with me; I have an uncle, a man of property at South Lambeth, so he thought to make a property of me; I was not guilty of it; by all account, he does not care what he does for money.</p>

<p>Q. What was the money of the draft? - A. Thirteen pounds seventeen shillings and sixpence; I had no change to give him the difference; I do not know whether he gave me the draft, or somebody else; I asked him if he would wait till I ran to Drummonds' and Co. and get the change; I told him I should not be gone long; he said he would call in the evening for the difference; he offered to leave the goods; I told him, no, there was no occasion for that; I was going to the West end of the town that night, I called at Drummond's, and offered that draft, and it was refused.</p>
<p>Q. When did you take him up? - A. I do not exactly recollect the day.</p>
<p>Q. You did not find him at home? - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. What was the price of the wig? - A.Five guineas.</p>

<p>Q. He did not want to take the wig away? - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. He offered to leave the wig; you telling him you would go to Messrs. Drummonds'? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. This was about the distance of two miles and a half; Messrs. Drummonds' is at Charing-cross? - A. Yes, I told him he might take the wig.</p>
<p>Q. And you took the check to Messrs. Drummonds', and it was refused; how soon after that did you part with that draft? - A. I cannot say.</p>
<p>Q. Did you take it away from Messrs. Drummonds'? - A. O yes, I took it away, and I gave it to my father, I believe.</p>

<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Alley. Q. When you apprehended him his observation was, that he had sent a friend to compromise the business with Mr. Ross; was not that the expression; and he thought it was settled? - A. No, it was not.</p>
<p>ALEXANDER ROSS, sen. sworn. - Q. You are the father of the first witness? - A. Yes. My lord, I am in that situation in life, that I should be sorry for any person to think I should compromise this business.</p>
<p>Court. A thousand things may be said behind your back, that does not attach upon you.</p>
<p>Q. From whom did you receive this check? - A. Mrs. Ross brought up the check to me, and asked if I would give the difference; I said, I will not give any change; the check was given to my clerk, and it was in my possession some time; I thought it might be a fraud, and I sent two or three people after him; and I went after him myself to his father; I said, you are the father of him; tell him to come and take the check; I had no idea of it being a forgery.</p>

When I had cooked the dinner, I went into the bar, and laid the cloth, and I asked him to have a bit of dinner with us; accordingly he did: he asked me if I thought Mrs. Harrison could make him up a bed, as he had come down with a view of stopping there all night; I told him the house was very small, but I had no doubt but Mrs. Harrison would make him up a bed; he said he did not care where he laid, as he must lay there that night; with that, after the dinner was over, he stopped a good bit, and I went into the tap-room, and the young man sat down; I went out, and went across the way, and come back again, and the young man was gone; I do not know when he went, I never missed him; about half past three in the afternoon, a person came and called for some gin and water; I desired the girl to bring in a little warm water, which she did, and going to the till I missed the spoons; there was one table-spoon, two tea-spoons, and a pair of sugar-tongs missing.</p>
<p>Q. How long had you seen them before? - A. I saw them when I sat down to dinner; after I missed them I was very much frightened, and began to ask when the young man went out; finding him gone, and not paying for the pint of beer, and never saying he was going away, and knowing nobody had been in the bar but him and ourselves, I knew it must be him.</p>

He humbly implores that this honourable Court will grant him that mercy and humanity, which makes them so conspicuous.</p>
<p>Q.(To Mr. Harrison.) Did Mrs. Harrison come to town after the prisoner? - A. When I came home, my wife's sister told her what had happened; she said to me, my dear, I must tell you I have been robbed; that man that went away from you at Westminster, has been here; with that my wife went to town on Saturday, and said, I will not leave town till I find him, or meet him.</p>

<p>Mr. Knapp. Q. You cannot tell that? - A. He was employed by me, upon the last stage, to bring the waggon into London; the waggon was locked up; we never open the waggon but at Cheltenham, Gloucester, North-Leech, Burford, and Oxford: at these places, there are keys with the different book-keepers.</p>
<p>Mr. Watson. Q. Whatever parcel or package that was put into your waggon to come from either of these places to London, is there any account taken of them? - A. Yes; this was taken up at Cheltenham; the way-bill has an account of the goods; I received it from the prisoner at the bar, upon the arrival of the waggon on the 29th of September.</p>

<p>Mr. Watson. Q. What is the sum charged against that? - A.5 s. 4 d.</p>
<p>Q. That is in the way-bill delivered by the prisoner to you? - A. Yes, I received the way-bill, and was present at the unloading of the waggon, and there was no trunk directed to Sir E. Bailey.</p>
<p>Q. Did he ever account for the sum which is charged against it to you? - A. Never, in any way whatever.</p>

<p>Q. The custom I suppose is to deliver the waybill immediately on the waggon's return to London? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Court. Q. There is an invoice of what is put in at Gloucester, and there is a way-bill of what is taken in in the way; then at Cheltenham they put in, where they change horses; and whatever they take in at Northleech, that is put in the way-bill; and at Oxford, if they have a parcel, that is put in the way-bill; and so the same way-bill comes to London, and is evidence of what things are put in at these places? - A. Exactly so.</p>
<p>Mr. Knapp. Q. I understood the prisoner to be the person that took the waggon from Gerard's cross to London? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. The prisoner never comes back from Gloucester? - A. O yes, he comes back in his regular routine of the waggon's going.</p>
<p>Q. How long is he coming from Gloucester to London? - A. About a fortnight, from his going out to his coming in, I am not exactly correct in that.</p>
<p>Q. I suppose that sometimes a waggoner may make a mistake in his accounts, and he may correct it in another? - A. No, never.</p>
<p>Q. You have always had correct waggoners? - A. The way-bill corrects them; I was in the way when the waggon arrived: I questioned him about these trunks; he declared he knew nothing of them; he told me the waggon was exactly as he received it from Gerard's cross; he swore it.</p>
<p>Court. Q. If there was any mistake in the way-bill it must have arisen at Cheltenham, because there they gave the way-bill, and there they put down the articles in the way-bill, and therefore, when he brought this way-bill, and you looking over the parcels finding a trunk in the way-bill and not in the waggon, you asked him how that came, and he said it was as he received it from the last carrier? - A.Justly so.</p>

<p>Q. How came you to say you were pretty sure it was him; do you mean to swear it was him, or you believe it was him? - A. I am pretty sure it was him.</p>

<p>Q. Do you know the prisoner, Trotman? - A. Yes, very well; I have known him six or eight months; he has been in my service ever since the latter end of May or the beginning of June.</p>

<p>Court. Q. Did Armitage recommend him to you as a servant? - A. He recommended him to me as an honest worthy servant; he said he would be bound for his honesty, he had lived with him for six or eight months.</p>
<p>Mr. Gurney. Q. You say he was to manage a bakehouse there for you; what wages was he to have? - A. Eighteen shillings per week and the privilege of the bakings; I took the house, and bought the fixtures, and put him in, as
<rs id="t18041024-32-viclabel163" type="occupation">baker</rs>, the same as the others; I had one or two more at the same time; I paid every expence of the business; the assize-papers, salt, yeast, and coals, and every individual thing; I paid for the printer's bills.</p>
<p>Q. Did he go into that house, and into that business for you? - A. He did; I from my own stock provided flour; he paid me as he sold the bread for the consumption; we settled once a week, on Thursday; I believe I always went to him; I settled up to the 6th of September, debtor and creditor. (Produces the book.)</p>
<p>Q. Did you sell the flour to him, or did he receive it as your servant? - A. I never sold to him a sack of flour, but he was to account to me as bread; on the 6th of September there remained twelve sacks of flour on hand; that was on Thursday; on the Tuesday following he came to my house; he said he wanted some more flour; he was getting on famously; he baked a great deal of it, and begged I would send him some fresh flour in; I immediately ordered twelve sacks to be sent to him; this was on the 11th; on the 13th, Thursday, I went, as usual, to settle with him, and very much to my surprize, I found the house shut up, and every thing taken away that he possibly could, and he himself was gone.</p>
<p>Q. Did the prisoner Armitage come to your house at all? - A. Yes, he came to my house on the 16th; he enquired if I had heard or seen any thing of Trotman; I said, I think, Armitage, you know where he is; he declared to me that he had not seen him; he wished he had, for that he had borrowed of him 5 l. the week before, on purpose to make my money up, and he had run away with it; on the 22d I went to Armitage; he lives on Saffron-hill; Mr. Cole was with me; I knocked at Armitage's door; he is a baker; I said, what, Armitage, are you here; I told him I rather suspected he knew something about Trotman, and about the flour, as I had told him at my house; he said he knew nothing about the flour; I told him I believed I should make him know something about it, before I had done with him; I looked round the shop, and could not see any sack belonging to me, but one, and that was marked Hobrey; it was standing with salt in it; I had sent that sack to Trotman with flour in it some time before, and I had seen the sack at Trotman's house with some salt in it, that he had bought of some person, not on my account; he denied the flour; I sent for Mr. Trott, an officer, and when he came Armitage was very much frightened and alarmed; then he acknowledged to have received twelve sacks of flour from Trotman, but he would not keep them; he sent them away the next morning; I asked him where he sent them to; he said, Trotman took them away himself, he did not know where they were gone to; we were altogether, Trott, Armitage, and me; Trott said that he had observed some few sacks of flour go out a few days before, and he could not make out where the flour went to.</p>
<p>Q. After this did Trott and you go to any person's house? - A. To one Salter's, a Baker, in Leather-lane, and there I found two sacks that I had sent from my own house to Trotman's; it had not been unsewed, it had the appearance of being in the same state as I had sent it from my own warehouse to Trotman's, and there was another sack, marked Man, but I did not swear to that, I had no doubt of it; after this I came back to Armitage, and told him what we had found; then he acknowledged to the receiving of twelve sacks from Trotman.</p>
<p>Q.Did he produce any bill or receipt to you? - A. Yes, he produced a receipt for twelve sacks of flour, signed by Trotman; D - n me, says he, that is the receipt, you can do me no harm, I have bought the twelve sacks of flour, and paid for it; the receipt expressed twelve sacks of flour: I said to him, that would not account for the 15; Trott took him then into custody, and took him to a public-house; he seemed very much frightened; if this be the case, says he, I will tell you the whole about it; Mr. Tusting, I should never have served you so, if you had not used me ill; I told him that I never had used him ill; he said I had, in not letting Trotman be best for him, in some difference there was between his wife and him; he said, I will tell you were Trotman is; he has been at my house near a week, and he left
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180410240021"/>me on Wednesday last, and he is gone down to the Devizes, but if I would not believe him, if I would go to an inn at the top of Fleet-street, I should find his box, directed Crouch; he had altered his name, for fear I should find him out; I accordingly went to this inn, as he directed me, one of the waggon-inns, just at the top of Fleet-market; I did not find his box; I found an entry of the box, in the name of Crouch; upon this, Trott and I went to the Devizes that evening; we got there the next morning very early, and there I found Trotman in a little room, with his wife, at a public-house, up stairs; they seemed to be repacking their clothes up; Mr. Trott entered the room before I did; I was close by to hear what passed; Mr. Trott said, you are the man that we want; you must pack up your things and go with us; he said he would get packed up directly; I was in the room all the time; Trott asked him if he had any property belonging to me; Trott found some money on him, that he acknowledged to be my money for the bread he had manufactured the week before, and also a debt that he had got from a neighbouring person, it was 11 l. I asked him if he had received any money of Armitage; he said he had not received a single farthing of it, nor for the flour sold, nor the candles; he had borrowed 2 s. of his wife, which he paid him at that time; he told us that Armitage desired him to give a receipt, in case that I should find out the flour, that he might shew the receipt, that I might not do any thing to him; he gave him the receipt, in the presence of Paul Hatton, but it was a false receipt; he acknowledged to being with Armitage, and he had been down a day or two in the country.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Knapp. Q. Before Armitage said any thing to you about it, you probably told him, it would be better to confess? - A. I did not say any such thing.</p>
<p>Q. You told him you would prosecute him? - A. I meant to do it, if I could.</p>
<p>Q. Did you threaten him you would prosecute him, if he did not confess? - A. No, nor any thing like it.</p>
<p>Q. Armitage came to you, after Trotman had gone off? - A. It appears to me, that he was at his own house at that time.</p>
<p>Q. He was gone from Union-street? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q.He produced a receipt to you? - A. He did.</p>
<p>Q.Trotman was your servant? - A. Yes, he was.</p>

He made the return, but I never charged him with it.</p>
<p>Q. Whether Trotman, as the proprietor, did not make the return in his name? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Court. Q. Any body might suppose Trotman was the master; did any body besides Armitage know of the engagement between Trotman and you? - A. It was not likely that any body should know; I do not know that any body knew of any engagement but Armitage and him.</p>
<p>Mr. Alley. Q. You had employed Trotman to open a cheap bread shop; a loaf for three-halfpence less than any body else would sell it for, and he was to return the money of what he had sold? - A. Yes, he had no right to sell a sack of flour.</p>
<p>Q. If he had sold a sack of flour, he was to return you the money? - A. To be sure he was; he had no right to sell a sack of flour at all.</p>

Yes, it is true; there is one thing that Mr. Tusting has not related; the prisoner Trotman asked me who had told me where to find him; I told him it was Armitage; he said, he was a d - d rogue; then I put the question how much flour he had sold to Armitage; he said, fifteen sacks; there was an agreement made for twelve sacks, of which Armitage got him to give a receipt for; I said, why not give a receipt for the whole fifteen; I cannot exactly remember the words about the receipt; it was something concerning the receipt-stamp would not do for the whole amount; he said that Armitage said to him, if he had a receipt for twelve sacks that would take off any suspicion.</p>
<p>Mr. Knapp. Q. This was what Trotman said; Armitage was not present? - A. No, Trotman said he had received no money from Armitage; he supposed he should be served the same way as he had served Mr. Tusting, get none; I produce the three sacks I received from Mr. Salter.</p>
<p>Q. Had you a few days before seen any flour removed from Armitage's? - A. Yes; I live nearly opposite; it might be three or four days before that Saturday; I was coming out of the door, going up to the Office, and I observed a grey horse, which is not able to carry flour a great way, and a very little cart; I observed the sacks being put in in a great hurry; it struck me very surprisingly that he had not been in the shop long, on account of removing the flour; I saw them put it in a cart opposite Armitage's door.</p>
<p>Q. Did the flour come out of Armitage's house? - A. I did not take particular notice; I saw three or four sacks put into the cart; on the morning of the 22d, I went and enquired, and these are the sacks I had from Mr. Salter; one of them is marked with a piece of leather, No. 1; Mr. Tusting told me it was marked so. (The sacks produced and identified by Mr. Tusting.)</p>
<p>Trotman's defence. Mr. Tusting, the prosecutor, employed me to print these bills; he indited them himself at his own house, and what was denominated to me as wages, was in case of fines, before I went before the Lord-Mayor; I told him the consequence, that I was going to do a thing that was wrong; he did not seem to like me to have that shop, without I made an affidavit of the return; he said, you must go and do it; I am sorry he has betrayed me as he has done; he allowed me to sell the flour, I did not do any thing but what he allowed; he said if I had not flour in the shop, to come to his warehouse for it.</p>
<p>Armitage's defence. I did not know that Mr. Trotman was a servant of Mr. Tusting's; I happened to see a hand-bill - Trotman, bread and biscuit-baker, and flour manufacturer, Union-street, Kingsland-road; bread sold three-halfpence under the assize price; flour sold by the sack or score, at the shortest notice. - There is a hand-bill there of the same.</p>
<p>The prisoners called three witnesses each, who gave them a good character.</p>
