<p>Prisoner's defence. About half past twelve o'clock I was standing with the cart at Charing-cross; my master came down to me, and ordered me to go to Mr. Frisby Howis to load the cart; I stood with the cart before the shop a quarter of an hour; the gentleman came to the door, and I asked him how long it would be before he could get the goods to load; he said a quarter of an hour; I asked leave to go and get a pint of beer and a bit of bread and cheese; instead of going for that I went up to the whip-maker and fetched my whip.</p>
<p>Q. What do you say about the ham? - A. I never touched any thing of the kind, nor had the least thought about it.</p>
<p>The prisoner called two witnesses, who gave him a good character.</p>

<p>Q. Do you remember the prisoner coming into your master's shop on the 6th of May? - A. Perfectly well, it was between three and four o'clock, and another lady with her; the prisoner enquired of the boy to look at some British lace; he was the only one in the shop; I was in the adjoining room; the door being open, I heard every thing, and by the glass I saw every thing, that passed; he shewed her a draw of British lace; they did not approve of that; she asked to look at some real lace; the boy shewed her a draw of real lace; she did not make choice of what he shewed her; he went to the window to fetch a card from there; she did not approve of that, but she made choice of one in the drawer, and agreed with him for seventeen yards, which he cut off for her; she had not money to pay for the whole of the lace; she desired it might be put by and she would call the next day; she gave the boy one shilling and sixpence towards the payment.</p>
<p>Q. Did you miss any lace? - A. We did not miss any at all.</p>
<p>Q. Was there a quantity of lace lying about the counter? - A. None, but what was in the drawer, she and the other woman sat upon two stools by the side of the counter, and the drawer was between the two women; the prisoner was the person that cheapened the lace.</p>
<p>Q. Did the other woman offer to buy any? - A. I believe the lace that was to be bought was for the other; I believe it was the prisoner that gave the one shilling and sixpence.</p>
<p>Q. Was she intoxicated at all? - A. It appeared to me so; she had a very odd behaviour with her, and had a great deal of action with her hands; they were very genteel people, and very well dressed; the other woman had on a white dress and long sleeves, and a feather in each of their hats.</p>

<p>Q. What reason had you? - A. This lace, with this ticket, which appeared to be a shop-mark, was hanging somewhere under her clothes, with the ticket to it; I ordered her to be taken to Worship-street, I gave particular charge that she should not drop the lace; I went with her to the office, and it was taken from her there; there was another card of lace which the officer took from her at the Office.</p>

<p>Q. When did he quit your service? - A. On the night he committed the robbery, on the Thursday in Passion-week, I do not recollect the day of the month; I believe he left my house about half after nine in the evening; at nine o'clock I rang the bell, and the prisoner answered me; at half an hour after nine I rang again, and upon no person answering, I was surprized and went down, and I found there was no person below stairs; I then went up stairs and called; I found no servant above stairs neither; in a short time afterwards, there was a ring at the bell; I went down and opened the door; it was the house-maid; I reprimanded her and she said the prisoner had induced her to go; I found the prisoner was absent; he did not return that night.</p>
<p>Q. Did you miss any thing upon his being gone? - A. In consequence of what the servant-maid told me, I missed all the plate, chest and all.</p>
<p>Q. Had you that plate in use in the course of that day? - A. The chest of plate was in my room the whole course of that day.</p>
<p>Q. Had you looked at the contents of the chest that day? - A. I had not.</p>
<p>Q. I suppose you had several articles of plate in use that day? - A. No, none that were in the chest.</p>
<p>Q. When had you last seen them in the chest? - A. I believe about three weeks before I put them in the chest myself; I keep those in my own bedroom that are not in common use; I lost both these that were in common use and in the chest, except a few.</p>
<p>Q. Upon this did you make any enquiry after the prisoner? - A. I did; on Sunday I found he had been with Soley, a milkman, on Lisson-green; I traced him by that means.</p>

<p>Q. Had he any thing with him? - A. No, not when he came to my house; he asked my wife if she would consent for me to go as far as Bishopsgate-street; he said, if you will dress yourself, and come over the other side of Lisson-green, I have got a hackney coach; I dressed myself, and went;
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180505290005"/>there was nobody with the coach but the coachman and him; he went into the coach, and asked me to ride a little way with him; I got into the coach with him, and I saw two boxes in the coach; he drove on down Oxford-road; the coachman, when he came into Oxford-road, said he must feed his horses, and he would advise him to take another coach, as the horses could not go so far as Bishopsgate-street; he told the coachman to get him a post-chaise; the coachman got him one, and the post-chaise was put alongside, and the boxes were put out of the coach into the post-chaise; the helper that came with the post-chaise shifted the boxes.</p>
<p>Q. Did you touch them? - A. No; then I shook hands with him, and told him I would rather go home, as he had got a post-chaise; he pressed very much for me to go along with him, and I agreed to go to Islington turnpike; when I came there I shook hands with him, and parted, and wished him a pleasant journey.</p>
<p>Q. Did you hear him tell the postillion where to drive to? - A. Yes, to Waltham-cross.</p>
<p>Q. Did he say he was to go farther? - A. He told the post-boy he was going on to Cambridge; with that we went on Friday morning to the place where he told us for the clothes; we went to two or three places, we did not understand the right shop, and we never got the clothes.</p>

<p>Q. What did he bring with him? - A. I was not present at the moment he alighted; I believe the post lad had brought the boxes into my house.</p>
<p>Mr. Knapp. Q. You were not present; you did not see the boxes taken out of the chaise? - A. No; I saw the boxes in my parlour.</p>

<p>Q. Had you any conversation with the prisoner about the boxes? - A. No, nothing particular; I went to the parlour-door, and made my obedience to him, and he asked for a pot of ale; the servant fetched the ale; then he asked for something to eat; I told him I had nothing cooked, there was bread and butter, and bread and cheese.</p>
<p>Q. Did he give you any directions about these boxes? - A. He said he would take a bit of dinner, and after dinner he went and took a walk, and came back to tea; after he drank tea he went out of doors, and going out of doors he heard there was a post-chaise to let; he went and hired the post-chaise, and the post-chaise was brought up to the door; he took the white deal box with him.</p>
<p>Q. That was one of the three boxes? - A. Yes; he said he was going to Cambridge, and he said, would I have the goodness to take care of the other two boxes till he returned again; he said he believed he should come back on the Sunday morning, but he did not return till the Sunday evening; then the deal box was brought back, and he said he was going to London on the Monday morning, and he wanted something out of the other two boxes, and the middle box of the three was brought down stairs for the gentleman to take out whatever he wanted.</p>
<p>Q. Why do you call it the middle box? - A. Because there was one smaller, and the white deal box was larger.</p>
<p>Q. He took something out, did he? - A. Yes, I went into the parlour to light him, and I saw him open the large deal box, and in shifting his box I saw some silver candlesticks and two silver branches; I saw them in the room, I suppose they were taken out of the box.</p>
<p>Q. You did not see him take any thing out of the box? - A. I did not particularly see that; however I saw them in the room on the table.</p>
<p>Q. You saw him open the deal box, but you do not recollect seeing him take any thing out? - A. Yes, I saw them in the box afterwards; there were some silver candlesticks, and two silver branches.</p>
<p>Q. Were they silver? - A. Apparently silver, I thought they were silver; they were such as I never saw before, and there were some silver spoons; I never remarked any thing else; he said he was going to take a neckcloth for his own use; he took the middle box, and the other box, and locked them up; he asked me to be so kind as to take care of them till he came back.</p>
<p>Q. Did he lock up both the boxes? - A. The little box was locked; he locked the other box, and one box he took into his bed-room, and the other two, the lad, who was in my house, took them up into my bed-room; he staid on the Sunday night, and went off in the morning before I was up.</p>
<p>Q. I understood you to say that he desired you to keep these boxes till he returned? - A. Yes, I have told you so.</p>
<p>Q. What did he do with the large box? - A. They were both put into my bed-room, and one he took to London with him; that was the middle box.</p>
<p>Q. The other two were kept in your bed-room? - A. Yes.</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180505290006"/>Q. How long were they kept in your bed-room? - A. The Monday happened to be a fair-day; I locked up my room door, and put the key in my pocket, and in the evening he returned again from London about tea-time; I changed but very few words with him, being busy; I asked him how he did after his journey; he told me he was going his journey for Cambridge.</p>
<p>Q. He still left his boxes with you? - A. Yes, they were still in the same place where he left them, in my bed-room.</p>
<p>Q. I suppose you are quite sure they are the same boxes that he left? - A. O yes, that I am very sure of; I bid him good afternoon, and went about my business; in the course of the evening, Mr. Rivett and Mr. Dennis came into my house; I stood at the bar-door; they asked me if the landlord of the house was at home; I told them, yes; they asked me if they could speak to him; I said, yes; Mr. Dennis said to me, are you the landlady; I said, yes; he then said, I shall be glad to speak to you in a private room.</p>
<p>Q. You told him that a man had left two boxes? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Did you show him the boxes? - A. I told him they were in my bed-room; I went up stairs with both the gentlemen by myself, and unlocked the bed-room door, and shewed them the boxes; Mr. Dennis looked at the deal box, and put his hand upon it, and said that was his box, and he could swear to it; it rather confused me, and I said, if it is your's, I should like to have somebody as a witness to see you take these things from me, for fear I should be brought into trouble.</p>
<p>Q. You delivered the box to Mr. Rivett and Mr. Dennis? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Did you ever see the prisoner afterwards? - A. I heard his voice when Mr. Dennis and Mr. Rivett returned with him; he never came into my house after he was taken.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Knapp. Q. I understood you to say, when the person came in the chaise the first time, you were not then at the door? - A. I was not present, to my knowledge.</p>
<p>Q. The first time you saw the boxes was in your parlour, and that gentleman was in the same room with the boxes? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. You were not present at the time to see that any boxes were taken out of the chaise? - A. I do not recollect seeing them taken out of the chaise; he is the gentleman that gave them into my hands.</p>
<p>Q. Any body else might have brought them there for what you know? -</p>

<p>Q.(To Mrs. Patmore.) Did the prisoner give you the key of that box? - A. Yes; the reason of his giving me the key was, he said it had been lost

<p>Q. Whose flour was it? - A. Mr. Richardson's; it was in a stable belonging to him, the prisoner was carman; there might be seventeen or eighteen pounds in the stable, he took part of it, which is in the bag here.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Gurney. Q. Have you had it in your custody ever since? - A. Yes, locked up.</p>
<p>Q. Where were you when you saw all this? - A. In the adjoining building; I was looking through the crevice of a slight partition.</p>
<p>Q. Do you pretend to say that flour is your master's property? - A. I saw him take it from under the straw.</p>
<p>Q. That was not the place where your master keeps flour? - A. Certainly it was not.</p>
<p>Q. Neither can you swear to the colour of the flour? - A. I cannot swear to the colour of the flour.</p>
<p>Court. Q. What quantity was there? - A. The whole that was under the straw was seventeen or eighteen pounds, out of which I saw him take just so much flour as is in this bag.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know whether your master missed any flour? - A. We could not tell that; I saw the place where it was taken from, there was some spilt upon the ground.</p>
<p>The prisoner left his defence to his Counsel.</p>

<p>Q. Do you let lodgings? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know the prisoner? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Do you remember the prisoner at the bar coming to you on the 13th of April last? - A. I do; she came for a furnished apartment; she asked what apartments I had to let; she looked over every room in my house; she fixed upon the front parlour, and the bed-chamber over it; she was to pay me twenty shillings per week for these rooms; she told me that she came from Sunderland, and that she and her husband were going to settle in the West-Indies, and she would take these rooms for three months certain; I asked her to give me a reference for their character; she told me she was a stranger in London, and could give no reference, and that she would go back to her husband, who was on board a ship, and probably he had some acquaintance in London. She gave me three shillings, and desired that I would order in some coals for her use; she took my address, and went away; she came back in the course of two hours, and then told me she could give me a very respectable reference to a Mr. Pilkington, in Cornhill; she told me her name was Wilson, and Mr. Pilkington would give me any satisfaction that I would require; she asked me if she might go into the bed-room, and refresh herself; I went with her, and put up my bed-furniture while she was in the room; I left her in the chamber; she then came out of the room, and said, might she lay herself down for an hour, for she was very much fatigued; I made no answer; she went in immediately, and shut the bed-room door; I left a friend of mine in the charge of the house sitting in the parlour; I went to Cornhill to look for Mr. Pilkington.</p>
<p>Q. How far might that be from your house? - A. About a mile and a half; I could not find any person of that name in Cornhill; I returned, and I asked for her, and my friend that I left in the house told me that she went out, and said that she would return in an hour; I then went into the bed-chamber, in which I left her, and found that the bed was completely stripped of all the furniture; the whole of the curtains and trimmings, and the sheets, were gone. Upon this I went to a friend, and they advised me to give information at Bow-street Office; I saw no more of her till I saw her at the Public-office, in Bow-street, which was about eight days afterwards.</p>
<p>Q. You saw no part of your property there then? - A. Not then.</p>
<p>Q. When did you see any part of your property?
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180505290014"/>- A. I had a letter from an officer in Bow-street, informing me where some of my property was pledged; I went to Bow-street, and the officer came with me to the Minories, to a pawnbroker's there, where my property was found; this was about three weeks afterwards; I saw my bed-furniture there; another pawnbroker had the sheets.</p>
<p>Q.Are both these pawnbrokers here? A. One is here that had the sheets.</p>

<p>Q. Did you know the woman? - A. No; I had taken the description of her down so many times, I was sure I should know her; I went to the shop, and went into one of the private boxes; I there saw the prisoner at the bar; I said to her, how do you do, Mrs. Wilson; she said her name was not Wilson, I must be mistaken; I said I was quite sure that she was the person that had been so frequently described to me; I said, let me look at your hand, and by her nails and every other description I was positive; she denied it. I said, I must search you, I am sure you are the woman; I searched her, and found only one duplicate, as I can recollect, upon her; the duplicate was to Collins's, the same shop, for a gown or petticoat; I gave it back to her; I asked her before I went to the Office where she lived; she said she did not live any where, she had no lodgings.</p>
<p>Q. How came you to know where any part of the things were pledged? - A. Mr. Collins intimated the circumstance to me, and said that there was a man, who was a carpenter, who had been at work in his shop, which induced me to think it was the husband of the prisoner; it appeared that he had been afraid to come out, and said that his wife was lost; I went to the house, and there I saw Mr. Cureton. After being committed several times for re-examination, she told me the bed-furniture was pledged at Matthews's, in the Minories, and Mr. Collins likewise told me of a Jew, who had bought some duplicates, and had fetched some things out; I went to Solomons, the Jew; he said he had six or seven duplicates, which he gave me to look at; one of the duplicates were for the sheets, I took the direction of it.</p>
<p>Q. Solomons would not part with the duplicate? - A. No; the sheets were pawned for fifteen shillings; I left them a summons to produce them the next day.</p>
<p>Q. Did you go to the place where these duplicates pointed out? - A. Yes, to Mr. Collins's.</p>

<p>Q. Are they the sheets that you put on the bed on the 13th of April, when the prisoner at the bar came to take a ready-furnished lodging? - A. The same.</p>

<p>Q. You told us that you went to a pawnbroker's in the Minories, where you saw your bed-furniture? - A. Yes, at Matthews's, in the Minories.</p>

<p>Q. And that you put them on the bed that very day? - A. I did.</p>

<p>Q. Do you believe him to be the man? - A. Yes; I keep a broker's shop, he brought a chair, and asked my man whether he would buy it of him; my man called me out, and he offered the chair to me; I told him I did not buy chairs in the shop without I knew the people; he told me I need not fear buying it, it was his own, his father had left him two chairs a year and a half ago, he would wish to keep one, and the other he had no use for, he wished to sell that; I asked him where he lived; he said he lived at No. 6, Brick-lane; I told him one of my men should go to Brick-lane, and if he lived there I would buy it of him; he asked five shillings for the chair, and said the man might go with him; and going out of the door, he said, it was not his chair, it was his brother's, and he lived in Drury-lane, his brother lived in Brick-lane; I said I would have nothing to do with it; I told him it would be doing him justice to send for an officer; I sent for an officer, and Vickery came and took charge of him.</p>

<p>Prisoner's defence.

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180505290020"/>the Rainbow; he said he hoped I would not take him into custody, if I did it would be the ruin of him; I found a number of other things upon him. (The property produced, and identified by the prosecutor.)</p>
<p>Prisoner's defence. My Lord and gentlemen of the Jury, my defence will be short; I shall not detain the Court long; I had been out the day this offence was committed, and had drank very freely; I was in a state of intoxication, and I had an appointment to meet a gentleman at the Rainbow coffee-house upon some business; I went there in order to meet the person; the person that I was to meet called upon me, after I had ordered the tea, and said that he had made a mistake in the house that I was to meet him at; it was another house, which was the Hummums; the things mentioned in the indictment were found on me I will admit of; but how they came on me, or in my pockets I know not; I was in such a state of intoxication that I was not able or capable of knowing what I was about; and in the morning, when the officer came to me in the watch-house, I did not even know the charge that was against me; I never was charged with a criminal matter in my life before; this is the first time that ever I was brought into a Court, therefore I shall humbly beg leave to throw myself on the mercy of the Court.</p>
<p>Q.(To Humphreys.) Had he the appearance of a man intoxicated? - A. No, I thought him mean and shabby.</p>
<p>Q.(To Akess.) At the time you were called upon to take the prisoner into custody, did he appear intoxicated? - A. Not at that time; in taking him to the watch-house he wished to make himself appear so.</p>
<p>Q. Was it real intoxication or pretended? - A. It appeared to me pretended, I do not think he was drunk at all.</p>
<p>The prisoner called four witnesses, who gave him a good character.</p>

<p>Q. What did he ask for? - A. He asked for nothing at all; he walked down the coffee-room and returned to the fire-place, and from the fire-place to the bar; then he stood with his back to the fire.</p>
<p>Q. Did you know where the pepper-box stood that you charge him with? - A. It was only my suspicion at first; the pepper-box, in the course of the afternoon, had been used; I had removed it to the side-board; we usually put it, there after the business is over.</p>
<p>Q. Is the side board within the reach of the persons in the coffee-room? - A. Yes; I saw him look wildly round the coffee-room; I was standing in a dark part of the coffee-room and I saw the prisoner go out; there is a communication from the coffee-room to the passage leading to the hotel, where he had passed this side board, where there was a vast deal of plate extended; on his going out I thought I perceived that he put his hand over; whether he took any thing I could not just then inform myself; I am positive that he put his hand over; I arose from my seat immediately, and followed him as gently as I could, and in the middle of the passage, I being tall overlooked his shoulder, and saw this pepper-castor in his hand; I immediately laid hold of him; he still held this pepper-castor in his hand for about two minutes; then he threw it from him; I took him into custody, and searched him in the hall of the hotel in the side of his pocket I saw a muttineer; I put my hand into his pocket, and there I found the spoons; then I sent for an officer.</p>

I can only say in my defence as I did before, that I was in a real state of intoxication, and did not know that I was in the house, nor for what I was put into the watch-house, till the officer came to me in the morning; I beg leave to ask Coleman, the waiter, (I recollect so much as that), whether he remembers, at the time the officer was sent for, that he made use of this expression, that when I went out a thieving I ought to go out sober.</p>
<p>Coleman. Upon my word I did not; you had then a wild look with the eye, as you have at this time; he was drest at that time as he is now, exclusive of his having his great coat on and buttoned high up.</p>
<p>Court. Q. Was he intoxicated? - A. I cannot say; to the best of my judgement he was not. On the following day he was more intoxicated than on the over night: on the over night he walked as steady as myself into the coffee-room; I went immediately to Mr. Moule; the bar-maid said she had lost these things.</p>

<p>Q. Look at the prisoner at the bar - On the twenty-seventh of February did you see him? - A. I did, I saw him at my shop, it is dated on the back of the note.</p>
<p>Q. What time of the day was it? - A.About twenty minutes past four o'clock.</p>
<p>Q. It was light? - A. Yes, I was returning from my office, and the prisoner at the bar was at my shop, bargaining with my partner; he purchased two silk handkerchiefs; I went behind the counter, to give my partner assistance, and the prisoner at the bar gave me the note in question.</p>
<p>Q. What price was the two handkerchiefs? - A. It was either 12 s. or 12 s. 6 d, I will not be positive; the prisoner gave the note into my hand and I held it up to the light it was a note of five pounds apparently, and I conceived it to be a bad one, as I thought; I was not certain myself, I went up stairs to my wife who was ill in bed.</p>
<p>Q. You looked at the note and you thought it was a bad one - did you do any thing by way of knowing whether it was bad or not? - A. Yes, I went out leaving him in the shop and took the opinion of a neighbour.</p>
<p>Q. You went out, and your belief was confirmed? - A. Yes, my friend confirmed me in my opinion; I went to a banker's, in Barner-street, and they proved it to be a forged one.</p>
<p>Q. Did you go to any Police-office? - A. I did; there was no constable there at that time.</p>
<p>Q. Did any constable come to you? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Having spoken for a constable did you return home? - A. I did.</p>
<p>Q. Did you find the prisoner there? - A. I did.</p>
<p>Q. Be so good as to look at this note? - A. That is the note.</p>
<p>Q. When you found him there, what passed between you and him? - A. I shut the door upon the prisoner; I told the prisoner I suspected it to be a forged note; he said he was very sorry for it, and if I would go with him to Tottenham-court-road he had plenty of friends there, who would give me a good one, in lieu of the one in question; I told him it was out of my power; he then took the watch out of his pocket, and said he would leave it, and return the next day and satisfy me; I told him I had nothing more to do with it, it rested then with the Magistrate, I should have nothing further to do with it, the law must take its course.</p>
<p>Q. That is the note, and that note had not been out of your custody till you delivered it to the man who took the prisoner in custody? - A. No, I put his hat on his head (the constable never came to my house, I was going from my house, when I met the constable); I took hold of him by the arm, and took him myself till we came to Blenheim-steps, where the constable met us, and I delivered him to the constable, who, with myself, conveyed him to Marlborough-street; he made no resistance after he got out of the shop at all.</p>
<p>Court. Q. Did he make any resistance before he got out of the shop? - A. Not forcible resistance; he begged and prayed that I would let him go; we took him to the Office, and he was examined.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Q.What time were you gone from your shop, from your first going out? - A. I might be gone a quarter of an hour.</p>
<p>Q. Is it natural to suppose this man to be gone for a quarter of an hour with this note, that if I knew it to be a forged note that I should not have gone.</p>
<p>Court. You are not to talk and argue upon it; at present you must confine yourself to ask questions.</p>
<p>Prisoner. As to making any resistance, you cannot say I ever did.</p>
<p>Court. He said you made no forcible resistance,
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180505290022"/>you only begged and prayed in the shop, and no resistance at all out of the shop.</p>
<p>Q.(To Prosecutor). Did you give him a general reason for your going out of the shop? - A. I told the prisoner I had not sufficient change in the house, I would go out and get it.</p>

You are an inspector of Bank notes - I am going to shew you the Bank note in question - take that in your hand and tell us whether it is a forgery; first, the one that was given to Mr. Rhodes? - A. The whole of this is a forgery.</p>
<p>Court. Q. Be so good as to tell the Jury what you mean by the whole of its being a forgery? - A. I mean the paper is not the Bank of England paper, nor is it the engraving of the Bank of England; neither has it the water-mark, nor is it the signature of our cashiers, nor of any of the clerks.</p>
<p>Mr. Knapp. Q. Whom does that appear to be the signature of upon the face of that note? - A. It does not appear to be the signature of the Bank, we have no cashier that signs any 5 l. notes in that name at all.</p>

<p>Q. Are every one from the same plate? - A. From the same plate, the same paper, and the same ink. (The notes read in Court.)</p>
<p>Prisoner's defence. I must acknowledge I uttered these notes; I sent to the Bank, and Mr. Winter attended me in Newgate; I candidly told him the manner in which I got these notes; I passed three before that one to Mr. Rhodes; I knew it not to be forged. Can it be supposed that I, knowing these 5 l. notes to be forged, would have continued in the shop, when he was away from the shop a full quarter of an hour; I left on the other side of the counter, and the door open. I acknowledge I had the notes; I found the pocket-book, and I uttered the notes, but I knew them not to be forged.</p>
<p>Q. Have you any witness to call in your behalf? - A. I have not; with respect to the notes I found them; they did not belong to me, but through my partner's distressing me to the last shilling, I passed them; I must acknowledge my dishonesty that I did not advertise the book in which they were found; to say that I knew they were forged, I did not.</p>
