This neck handkerchief is mine, and the braces are mine; one of the buckles was wanting, and that part was cut to go over the button of my breeches, and the linen I know to be mine; it was sent to me from Scotland by my mother, cut off the web; I know it by the quantity and the quality; I have been in the habit of wearing my mother's linen all my life.</p>
<p>Prisoner's defence. The linen is my own, I have a pair of sheets of the same now in pledge; the handkerchief was left in my room by a person that slept with me; I know nothing about the name of the person that left it; the duplicates are all my own, they have been advertised, and nobody has come forward to own any thing; I have three small children, and am pregnant now.</p>

Nothing more likely; a portion of the bone was cut away from the skull, it was cut in a strait line, about as broad as a goose's quill, three quarters of an inch long and very deep, as if it was done by such an instrument as that; it made an incision into the bone, there was a complete piece taken out, as if it had been sawed out as it were; the scalp that covers the bone was very much torn; besides the fracture, there was a wound on the side of the head, and after examining that wound, the bone was discovered with a piece of it cut out, a slit in the bone as if from a violent blow; you may form some idea of it, by cutting off a piece of a goose's quill.</p>
<p>Court. Q. Did it appear to be broke off, or cut out? - A. Cut out.</p>

<p>Q. How far is that from Wheeler-street? - A. About a furlong.</p>
<p>Q. Tell us what passed between you, distinctly? - A. I was at work; he knocked at the door, I let him in; he asked me to come down stairs with him, he had something particular to communicate to me; I pointed out to him the inconveniency of leaving my work, and absolutely refused to go unless he would tell me his business; he rejoined, something had happened that day that had never happened before, he should go to Newgate; seeing him in that violent purturbation I reluctantly left my work, anxious to know the cause of it; he went down stairs, and I went down soon after, and found him at the street-door, we went about fifty yards from our door, and with a countenance full of grief he turned round to me, and said, Ned, I shall die; I asked him what was the matter with him, or what had happened, thinking there might be a degree of illness about him: he said, directly, I have killed my Sally; I asked him if the child was dead; he said, yes, I have cut her head half off. It was a severe cold morning, and he shivered with cold, and desired me to go into a public-house that he might warm himself, and have something to drink; I went with him into the first public-house we came to, which was the Cock and Magpie, in Worship-street; we had a pot of beer, he called for it, and a pipe of tobacco, the landlord filled him a pipe with tobacco; there were three men and a woman, strangers entirely to me, in the tap-room; he said, sit down, I have something to say to you; seeing them strangers I thought it imprudent to speak before them, desiring him, at the same time, if he had any thing to say to me not to say it there; we might be a quarter of an hour there probably, in that place.</p>
<p>Q. Then he did not say any thing there? - A. No; then we went out, and he resumed the discourse; I asked him what he was going to do, and what he meant to do with himself; he said he was going to Sun-Tavern-fields, Wapping, to see two friends of his, who were rope-makers, who would, when he was in prison, allow him a shilling or two; he then asked me when the Sessions would begin, I told him; he said, he should give himself up to Justice, and suffer, with this remark, - what odds will it make to me if they cut me into a thousand pieces, when I go hundreds will go at the same minute; I told him he should not have killed his child; he looked me in the face, and said, I know that, do not you retort on me now, it is done; I accompanied him as far nearly as Whitechapel church, and then shewed him the necessity of my returning to my business, I shook him by the hand, and saw him no more till I saw him at the office before the Magistrate; when the Magistrate sent for me, I gave the same account then, nearly, as I have given now.</p>

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180501090010"/>A. On Tuesday the 18th of December, about one o'clock in the afternoon, I received information that the prisoner was in Hare-street, at his daughter's; I went, in company with Bishop, a brother officer, to No. 24, Wheeler-street; I went up into the garret of that house, and there I saw the body of the deceased, lying with her head towards the door, about two feet from the door, with no cap on, and her throat cut across all the arteries, and cut through the wind-pipe, she was done bleeding, the blood was warm lying on the floor; I looked round just by the fire-place, I saw the quill-wheel, and on the block of that wheel was a quantity of blood, and there was a track of blood from the wheel to where the body laid, which might be about a yard; there was a low stool close by the wheel, where a person might be sitting down to work at the wheel; a razor was lying on the ground close by the side of that wheel, and there I got this razor, covered with fresh blood; between the wheel and the body of the child I found this cap, it had fell from her head, it is stained with blood, I saw there was no prospect of restoring life; I enquired if there was any one there belonging to the child, the room was full of people; I then, with the assistance of Bishop, put them out of the room, as there was property in the room belonging to the master of the prisoner; I took Godby and Byron to the Magistrate; we were all that day, and all that night searching after him, till about twelve o'clock at night; Armstrong, Mason, Bishop, and I, were together, we received information then that he was in custody, and was in Spitalfields watch-house, we went there to satisfy ourselves; when we went into the watch-house, the prisoner was sitting by the watch-house fire, he turned his head round and saw me, he said, Kennedy, I have given you some trouble to-day; Armstrong said to him, what do you mean by that; he answered, in searching after me; Armstrong then said to him, is your name Mitchell; he said, it is.</p>
<p>Q. Did you know him? - A. I had seen him before; I have known him for these five or six years. Armstrong said, I have seen a razor and a cap today in the possession of Kennedy; do you know you are charged with killing your daughter, and the razor and cap was found in your room; he then answered, with that razor I have often shaved myself, and with that razor I committed the horrid deed; Mr. Armstrong gave the warrant to the officer of the night, and left him in the watch-house; there were no signs of blood about him at that time.</p>
<p>Mr. Knapp. (To Dellafour.) Q. I would ask you whether, at the time you saw the prisoner, you observed any thing about his person? - A. I forgot to mention that when I was at the public-house, I observed on two of his fingers on one of his hands, a small quantity of blood.</p>
<p>Q. How much do you think? - A. Very trifling, not more than would come from the prick of a pin.</p>

<p>Prisoner's defence. My Lord and Gentlemen, I stand here before you a horrid spectacle of misery, of guilt, and of disgrace. I will endeavour to be as collected in my reason as possible, though unhappily for me, at certain times and seasons, I am particularly under heavy pressures of mind, which my wife well knows, and was well aware of it. That I have committed the horrid deed laid to my charge, I have no wish to deny, any more than I have to avoid the dreadful punishment that awaits my guilt, to that I am resigned, nor was it my wish from the unfortunate moment of my crime, to evade justice; but that I committed the deed maliciously against my poor child, who was the victim of my fatal passion, I solemnly deny. I loved my child, and I hope no one will think it was done in malice. I solemnly declare it was not, in the presence of God, before whom I now stand, and before whom I must shortly appear, and whom I hope will direct you and guide you in your decision upon me in the course of this day; for malice I had none, I loved her most tenderly, and love to the child, wishing her not to be from me, strange and perverse as it may seem, is owing chiefly the sad cause that brings me here this day. I am married to a second wife, by whom this was our only daughter; we had long known each other before our marriage, when I was in better days; and when she and I were the wife and husband of others, I thought I could be happy with her, but I did not know the nature and temper of her family; I found afterwards the friends and family with which she was connected, thought her marriage to me degrading. As her family disliked the union, she knew me well, why did not she avoid having me. What has occurred was done through the height of passion and despair, as disputes and controversies had taken place between us for ten years, in which unhappily both were in fault too much so. Those disputes were often carried to a pitch of fury, and what still more exasperated me was, that those she called her friends, always sided with her whether right or wrong; and, what is still worse, they would put their hands to mischief; and many of them, I am sorry to say, were strenuous professors of religious principles. May the Lord forgive them and me, and take me to himself! Our disputes at last ended in a mutual agreement to separate, and the child I so tenderly loved was to go with her mother. This my unhappy temper and feeling could not bear, and led me to the fatal resolution that neither she nor I should have the child, by committing the horrid deed of putting an end to her life, in the manner I have done. I pray God Almighty to forgive me, and to direct you in it, and may this spectacle I now stand be a warning to those who form second marriages, if they meet with double families, to have more love to their duty than giving way to intemperate disputes that may lead them, as they have done me, to acts of desperation and vengeance beyond the controul of reason and reflection! If my wife was present, she could vouch and prove that it was impossible I could ever have deliberately executed such an act; she could vouch that my disposition is not cruel, and that my resolutions have always led me to the side of virtue; but as here I stand, in the presence of God, when unfortunately under agitations of mind or provocations of temper, I am not really the same man at all times, and my weakness, under such circumstances, when I have been under the most resolute purposes for good, have very frequently led me into excesses of frenzy. I have often felt it, and I have wondered at it; in cool moments it has often astonished me how I could do so. There was a circumstance that happened to me at one time; my own business failed me, it has often failed me, and I frequently, when I could get no work at my own business, used to strike out to out-door work; but once in particular when I could get no work, forced by distress to apply for relief at my parish-workhouse, there was something that disappointed me, I had come too late in the day, and because I was disappointed, I broke as many windows as cost the parish four pounds, and yet the parish-officers did not punish me, though they might. I have no more to to say, but I hope God will of his infinite mercy forgive me; I must die a spectacle of sin, disgrace, and horror.</p>
<p>After the Lord Chief Baron had addressed the Jury, the prisoner requested permission to speak again, which was granted immediately by the Court.</p>
<p>Prisoner. There was a single point I have got to mention, which I wish my wife was here, she could attest the truth of what I am going to say; that when I have been the most resolute to good purposes, that frailty and weakness would often prevent it; she was well acquainted with my misery, I have been frequently so, as well as my mother, an old woman, that was sensible, and yet at times she would go the same way; she has often
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180501090012"/>asked me to cut her hair, for unless her hair was kept cut in a particular close manner, her weakness was upon her so as it has been with me.</p>

<p>Q. On the night of the 5th of November last, did any thing happen to that house? - A. On the night of the 5th of November, I was in the office till near eleven o'clock, the clerks had quitted their office about nine o'clock; when the clerks had quitted their office, I was sitting in my office with the door open, and my groom came in, from the door in Tudor-street, to the office.</p>
<p>Q. Did you hear the door fastened? - A. I heard the door shut, and the groom came in, and had some conversation with Mr. Le Blanc; I heard Mr. Le Blanc go out, and shut the door.</p>
<p>Q. He went out at the door in Bridge-street? - A. Yes; I went to bed about half past eleven o'clock, I got up the next morning about half past seven o'clock, when I received some information; I went into my own office, and found the uppermost drawer on the right-hand side of the desk broken open, the lock had been attempted to be

<p>Q. Had you seen this drawer the night before? - A. Yes, I had only occasion to pay money out of the drawer; I had left it locked the preceding night with these articles in it.</p>
<p>Q. Were there a miniature picture set in gold, a pocket compass, a leather bag, and a canvas bag? - A. Yes, and eleven half-guineas; there were more seven-shilling pieces than the number in the indictment, but I am not really certain how many.</p>

<p>Q. Had he an opportunity of seeing what you kept in that desk? - A. I paid him his wages quarterly out of this drawer, and I have many times took money out of this drawer for various purposes to give him.</p>
<p>Q. After this robbery had been committed by somebody, did you obtain a search-warrant? - A. No; I obtained a warrant on the 17th of November, to apprehend the prisoner, Mr. Nalder, the City Marshall, and Mr. Tipper, possessed themselves of it, and another constable: we went to the house of the prisoner, the corner of Suffolk-street, Dirty-lane, in the Borough, the King's-arms public-house.</p>
<p>Q. When you got to that house what did you first do? - A.

<p>Q. Did the prisoner play? - A. The landlord said he would take one hand with him, if he would walk out of the house afterwards; the prisoner agreed, and pulled out a two-pound note, and so did Davis; they were both given to Copers; a squabble took place, and Davis wanted his note back.</p>
<p>Q. The landlord desired him to go off? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. What Davis asked for, was his own two-pound note? - A. Yes; Mr. Davis desired him to walk out, and the prisoner said, I will not for you nor any b - r in the town; Copers said, I will back you for fifty pounds, or a hundred; the prisoner struck the landlord on the face, and after he had beat the landlord he robbed me of two one-pound notes; the landlord came up again; then the prisoner asked for the two-pound; Mr. Copers pulled out a one-pound note, which was Mr. Davis's; I do not know whether Mr. Copers gave the two one-pound notes to the prisoner, or not; he asked me for it; I said I have only got a one-pound note, which I laid down on the table; I said, that is not the note; Mr. Davis said, no; the prisoner at the bar put his hand over to the one-pound note, and tore it in half, and put it in his breeches pocket; I said, do not rob me; yes, he said, you b - r, I will rob you, and you shall not take it again; I begged him to give it me; he called me a d - d b - r, and struck me over the face; I struck the prisoner, and knocked him on the floor, and when he came to me again, I knocked him down again; then they said, if I was a man, I should give him room; I knocked him down again; after that he acknowledged that he had robbed me of two one-pound notes; he said, Mr. Armstrong, I beg you will not take the law of me.</p>
<p>Court. Q. Did he say he had robbed you? - A. He spoke the same words that I have said myself.</p>
<p>Mr. Gurney. Q. Give us the same words over again? - A. He said, Mr. Armstrong, I acknowledge I have robbed you of two one-pound notes, I will give them to you, and ten pounds to-morrow, I have none about me now.</p>
<p>Q. Was it for robbing you, or striking you? - A. I take it, for robbing me; the prisoner wished to leave off, as he had the worst of it.</p>
<p>Q. Did Mr. Copers say any thing then? - A. He said they were school-fellows, and he would give me ten pounds, or twenty pounds, if I would not take the law of him.</p>
<p>Q. Was the prisoner by at the time? - A.He was.</p>

Innocently I went out, and when I went into the public-house there was no such a person there; I was not four minutes gone, and when I returned the prisoner was gone, and had left the passage-door open; I missed the cloak directly, because it was hung just by the door.</p>

<p>- sworn. - I am a pawnbroker; I know the prisoner by coming to our shop several times; I know the cloak, I took it in myself of her; she was the person, I can swear to her. (The cloak produced and identified by the prosecutrix.)</p>
<p>Prisoner's defence. Please you, my Lord, I was very intimate with these people; I went on Saturday night to this woman's house, and told her I was deficient of a little money, and I was going to meet a person; if she would lend me a trifle, I would bring it her to-morrow; she said she could not lend me any money, but she would give me something to make it on, but she did not wish her husband to know it, which she did accordingly; I went to this pawnbroker's, where I have dealt a number of years; if I had stole the cloak I would not have gone where I had been known so many
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180501090029"/>years; I bought a small article out of the money I had pledged the cloak for; I gave the man the rest of the money, and the ticket; they accepted of the money, and the ticket, and when I was at the watch-house, they returned the money again; since I have been in the milk business, because she could not drink tea to do her good, as she had an asthma on her lungs, I have sent her bottles of neat milk from the cow to do her good.</p>
<p>Prosecutrix. Please-you, my Lord, I never took an oath before a Judge or Jury in my life till now, and I will take my oath I never saw the woman before in my life.</p>
<p>Prisoner. (To Prosecutor.) Q. Can you speak God's truth, Macdonald - do not you know me? - A. No more than any other woman in the neighbourhood; I know you by seeing you in the street, that is all I know of you.</p>
<p>Court. Q. You have seen her? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Is she a milk-woman? - A. I do not know.</p>
<p>Prisoner. My cousin is a milk-woman.</p>
<p>Jury. (To the prosecutor.) Q. How came you to know this woman had robbed your wife, when you met her by accident in Gray's Inn-lane? - A. When I came home to my wife, I said, can you describe the woman to me; yes, said she, she is a very big woman, with a full breast, and she wears a bonnet like a scuttle; with that I went out, and found her a little before two o'clock.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Please you, my Lord, this is the ribbon that she bought for my cousin, being so kind in sending the new milk to her; I am telling you the truth, if you please to hang me up this minute.</p>
