I found another piece in the closet; I asked him how he came by it, he told me he could account for it elsewhere, he said he would shew the magistrate the bill of parcels, but he did not think it worth while to shew me.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Const.</p>
<p>Q. Did not you ask Bryce whether he had any objection to your searching his house, did he not say with all my heart? - A. He did. I produce the canvas.</p>
<p>Mr. Alley. Q. (to Watson) Have you examined them pieces of canvas? - A. Yes, I have measured it, and I find it corresponds; I believe it is the same canvas.</p>

<p>Mr. Knapp. Q. I understand you speak to belief only, because the Castle Lee fell a great quantity of this sort of canvas? - A. Certainly. I will not swear to it. There was thirty-nine yards marked on the bolt; but here is another circumstance, the gentleman that we bought the canvas off, is a quaker, it has the London number of their stamp; he always books what canvas we buy.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know that of your own knowledge, have you got the bill of parcels here? - A. No, but the man shewed it at the justice's.</p>
<p>Court. Q. Do all bolts of canvas run nearly those yards? - A. They run from thirty-nine to forty, and so on.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. I have not got anything particularly to say. In respect to my stealing that, I never did. I never stole an article in my life. I had these goods, that the prosecutor took away from me, of Captain Sharp, for which he traded with me for soap and candles; unfortunately for me, he is gone up the Straits, and I cannot bring him forward.</p>

<p>Q. Had he any authority from you at any time during the time that he staid with you to sell any of your goods? - A. Never, not even my wife.</p>
<p>Q. Did you loose these articles in the indictment? - A. I did, with others; these articles are, the cobler and his wife, and the Egyptian mummy; I missed them about eleven months ago, when the prisoner was in my service; he left my service about the beginning of last November, I found the figures in Mr. Lee's house in Sloane-street; on the 3d of January, I found them by accident, the servant brought them down to me in mistake for something else; when I saw the cobler I knew it to be mine, I turned it up, I said is there not a fellow to it, the fellow to it was brought part of the way down stairs, I went into the dining-room, and there I saw the mummy in the corner of the room, standing up with a bust of Homer upon it. I looked to the mark and knew it to be mine; Mr. Lee was not at home.</p>
<p>Q. Had you before your servant went away, sold either of these in your shop, the cobler and his wife or the mummy? - A. Never to Mr. Lee or any body else.</p>
<p>Q. How soon did you see Mr. Lee? - A. I did not see Mr. Lee till I got the warrant; on the same day the prisoner surrendered before the magistrate.</p>
<p>Q. Did you describe to Mr. Lee the marks? A. I did before I took them out of the house; the mark is two crosses, I put the mark at the bottom of each about eleven months ago.</p>
<p>Q. Is this your own dwelling-house that you live in? - A. No, it is my own property.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Const.</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180601150008"/>Q. You are in partnership with your father I understand? - A. Yes, but this is a business that I took up on my own account entirely, about a year and a half ago.</p>
<p>Q. Was this man your servant? - A. Yes, he came from Mr. Blore, I think he told me that Mr. Blore gave him twenty-eight shillings a week, I agreed to give him thirty; I agreed to give him task work, as he said he was rather low.</p>
<p>Q. There is nothing due to him for wages? A. No, nor any thing else.</p>
<p>Q. He is your debtor? - A. I think he is, I have got an account of every farthing that I paid him, he generally over drew, he went away without paying me, in fact I told him I was disatisfied with his conduct; I suppose he owes me twenty pounds at least.</p>
<p>Q. Did he ever make a demand of more than that of you; did he ever employ an attorney? - A. He did, for the sum of 196 l. 12 s. 6 d. after he had left my service.</p>
<p>Q. Did you ever make a public charge against him previous to his leaving you? - A. No, I depended too much upon the man.</p>
<p>Mr. Knapp. Had Mr. Lee dealt with you at any time for figures? - A. Never.</p>
<p>Mr. Gurney. When was the demand made by the attorney for the prisoner? - A. About three weeks before this, after he had left me.</p>
<p>Q. Did you discharge him or he leave your service voluntarily? - A. I told him that I had missed a great quantity of figures, and then he went away.</p>
<p>Q. Then he made this demand? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Did you ever say that you had lost these things, and that you should prosecute for it? - A. Never.</p>

These things that are now produced were found in your house? - A. Yes, I purchased them of Mazzoni. I purchased the cobler and his wife about nine months ago.</p>
<p>Q. Had you known Mazzoni before? - A. I knew him at Mr. Blore's, I had bought these things, he makes these sort of things. About nine months ago, as I was going home, I met Mazzoni, I mentioned to him that I had got a bust that I wanted bronzed, he made a reply, I have left Mr. Blore, but I will do it for you as well as any body; he did it and brought it home, I paid him for it, I asked him what I should give him for the two figures, describing them to him, I do not recollect what he asked me, I told him I would give him a guinea, he made a demur at the price, I said you may let it alone; I saw him at Mr. Hamilton's shop about three weeks before they were brought home, there was a large figure there, I went in and saw Mazzoni, I asked him about the figures.</p>
<p>Q. What figures? - A. The cobler and his wife; he had agreed to my proposal, he brought them home in about three weeks after I saw him at Mr. Hamilton's shop, and I paid him, I think it was a guinea or twenty shillings.</p>
<p>Q. Did Mr. Hamilton go with you to the the figures? - A. No. Mazzoni told me as soon as it was dry to take the bronze he would bring it me home.</p>
<p>Court. Could Hamilton at the part of the shop that he was at hear that? - A. I cannot say, the shop is large, this was at the bottom of the shop, and Mr. Hamilton never moved.</p>
<p>Q. Where did you get the large mummy? - A. I had purchased a bust of Homer at a sale in Bond-street; I saw Mazzoni at the top of Sloane-street, I told him that I wanted a stand, describing the stand, I asked him what he would charge for it, he asked me twenty-nine or thirty shillings, I told him I would give a guinea; I called three or four different times at Mr. Hamilton's shop about it, and the servant called Mazzoni down; and once when I called on Mazzoni, Mr. Hamilton was in the shop, I walked down the shop with him and he shewed me the stand.</p>
<p>Q. Had you any conversation either about the cobler and his wife or the mummy with Mr. Hamilton? - A. No. I had been in the habit of employing his father near seventeen years to some considerable amount; I called at his father's yard one time about some business, Mr. Hamilton behaved extremely rude; I was always shy with Young Hamilton after.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Gurney.</p>
<p>Q. The cobler and his wife was made for you by Mazzoni by an order which you gave? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. You afterwards gave him an order for that mummy, which was made and brought home to you? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. While the mummy was making you went to the shop as you had done several times before; did Mr. Hamilton see you? - A. He must, Mazzoni was then in the shop.</p>
<p>Q. Did you converse together in whispers? - A. By no means.</p>
<p>Q. You say you saw this figure, and Mazzoni
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180601150009"/>was telling you that it was not fit for bronzing, and when it was dry enough he told you he would bring it home? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Was there any thing in Mazzoni's conduct that appeared he was telling any thing secret without the knowledge of his master? - A. Certainly not; I considered him the principal in these things; I did not know that Hamilton was in that branch of business.</p>
<p>Q. Did you look upon Hamilton as his master? - A. I did not; I looked upon it that he did it upon his own account.</p>
<p>Q. Before Mazzoni was there Hamilton did not do any such things? - A. No, the shop was fitted out as a mason's with marble chimney pieces.</p>
<p>Q. Had you any conversation with Hamilton after the prisoner had been examined at Marlborough-street? - A. I asked him what could be his motive in taking these steps; he made a reply that he brought him in a bill above an hundred pounds; what could he do?</p>
<p>Court. What employment did you suppose the prisoner at the bar had under Hamilton? - A. I looked upon him as making these figures for Mr. Hamilton, or any other person that should engage him.</p>
<p>Q. Not as a servant? - A. I never looked upon him as a servant to Mr. Hamilton.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. My first connection with Mr. Hamilton was through his coming to Mr. Blore; he told me repeatedly if I would leave him he would take me in partnership; I told him I would not leave Mr. Blore to work as journeyman at another place, but if I could be in partnership I would leave Mr. Blore; under that colour he took me. I knew Mr. Lee previous to my going to Mr. Hamilton, I had done some things for him; Mr. Lee met me one day in Sloane-street, he asked me to bronze a head for him; I told him then I did not live with Mr. Blore, I lived with Mr. Hamilton, but I could do it all the same; I went and fetched the head and bronzed it; in a little while after Mr. Lee said he should like a pair of figures, the cobler and his wife, I said I could make them; he said, have you got the moulds, I said Mr. Hamilton bought the moulds of Mr. Blore; I told Mr. Hamilton, and Mr. Hamilton told me to deal with him, for says he, he does not deal with me; I executed the work for him, in a little while after Mr. Lee ordered the mummy, for which I received the money, and Mr. Hamilton desired me to keep it; Mr. Hamilton gave me leave to make any cast that I wanted, for my own use, or what not.</p>
<p>Court. (to prosecutor) Do you remember Mr. Lee coming to your shop when Mazzoni was there? - A. I cannot remember it; I have seen Mr. Lee stand and look at a large figure that I had.</p>
<p>Q. Have you any recollection of his coming in the shop and going down the shop along with Mazzoni? - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. Of course you do not recollect any conversation in the shop between them? - A. No, that I am certain of.</p>

<p>Q. Was he so employed by you in October last? - A. He was. The consumption of corn in the early part of October, gave me suspicion to think that something was wrong; on the 22d of October I sent for a sack of oats, a bushel of beans, and a sack of chaff, which is the usual quantity that I have had about once a week or ten days, since September; I sent a particular written order each time; on that day I sent my team by the prisoner, he brought back a sack of chaff, a sack of oats, and no beans; I asked him the reason why he did not bring a bushel of beans, as mentioned in the order; he told me that Mr. Knight had no beans, nor had not had any beans for some time past; being surprised at that I went into my parlour and made a minute in my day book, therefore I can positively swear to not receiving any beans on the 22d of October. On the 31st of October, finding no beans come, I immediately wrote to Mr. Knight for my bill, the prisoner only having brought a sack of oats and a sack of chaff, I had given him a written order for a sack of oats, a bushel of beans, and a sack of chaff; I asked the prisoner the same question, he said Mr. Knight had no beans. On the 18th of November, I took the prisoner to Mr. Knight's; Mr. Knight's man stated to him that the beans had been delivered, the prisoner said he never
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180601150010"/>had any beans; when I went into the parlour, he ran away out of the shop. I heard that he was at work at Pinner, I went on Saturday morning and apprehended him, and brought him to town, and lodged him in Marybone watch-house.</p>
<p>- sworn. I am servant to Mr. Knight.</p>
<p>Q. Do you remember on the 31st of October, the prisoner coming with any order to you? - A. I never kept any account of the day. I recollect his coming on the latter end of October, he came three or four times in October. I delivered each time to him a sack of oats, a sack of chaff, and a bushel of beans; I am quite sure of that.</p>

<join result="persNameOccupation" targOrder="Y" targets="t18060115-9-defend138 t18060115-9-deflabel52"/>. On the 16th of December I got a search warrant at Hatton-garden office, I went and searched his two chests.</p>
<p>Q. Was the prisoner in the room? - A. No, he was out at work. I had two officers with me when I searched his chest; upon opening the first chest I saw two shirts, one of which I thought to be mine, and the other I knew to be mine from the mark that was on it, and this half handkerchief was in the box, and this one pound bank note was found laying at the bottom of the chest.</p>
<p>Q. Had you took the number of that bank note before you had lost it? - A. I had of that and two more about three weeks before I lost it. The officer took the things, one shirt I did not immediately know at the time, but afterwards, on close examination, I discovered it to be mine; he had almost taken the mark out of it. Two days afterwards I brought Stanton, the officer, to the house again, to take the last shirt with him.</p>
<p>Cross-Examined by Mr. Alley.</p>
<p>Q. You say you and the prisoner are both carpenters, did not you both work for Messrs. Wig and Mansfield? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. They are people of respectability. You have been discharged from their service since you made this accusation? - A. No, before.</p>
<p>Q. Do you always mark your notes? - A. I do not. I was resolved if I had a spare note to lay by I would take the number of it, accordingly I took the number of these notes.</p>
<p>Q. I suppose you communicated your loss to your fellow lodger on the evening of the same day you lost it? - A. No, I only told the landlord privately, between him and me.</p>
<p>Q. Do you mean to say that you never charged the prisoner with having taken the note before you got the warrant? - A. I never said a word to the prisoner till after I got the warrant; I could not accuse any one.</p>
<p>Q. Did you ever mention the loss of your first shirt to the prisoner, which you say you lost a week after you lost the one pound note? - A. I believe every person in the house heard it.</p>
<p>Q. A week after that you lost another; do you think that every body in the house heard of that too? - A. I believe they did.</p>
<p>Q. Then your loss must be well known to the prisoner? - A. I believe it was.</p>
<p>Q. Had not you and the prisoner a quarrel before you made this accusation? - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. Do you not remember bringing some window lead into the house, and putting it into the box which was common to you and him, for which he was angry with you? - A. Never.</p>
<p>Q. Did he not make a complaint to your master about it? - A. Not to my knowledge.</p>
<p>Q. Was not there a chest in the room that was common to you and him? - A. Yes, there was a chest of the prisoner's in the room that had but little clothes of the prisoner's in it, and I put some of my clothes in it, such as a coat and waistcoat, but no shirts.</p>
<p>Q. The key of that chest was always hanging up in that room? - Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Will you take upon you to swear that these shirts were not put in by yourself? - A. I will.</p>
<p>Q. Did not your washerwoman, by the desire of you, put the shirts in that box, when you was out of the way? - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. When you was before the magistrate, did you give the magistrate the number of that note? - A. I did not.</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180601150011"/>Court. You have been aked some questions about a chest, in which the prisoner said you might put some clothes in, was that the chest in which these shirts were found? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. And in which there were some of your clothes? - A. Yes. But three weeks before I got the warrant I took them out, and was resolved to keep them out of it, as I suspected him taking the one pound note.</p>
<p>A. Had you lost the shirts before you took the things out of the chest? - A. No, I had only lost the note before I took the things out of the chest.</p>

<p>Mr. Alley. Q. You know of course that red ink will wash out? - A. It will.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. I am innocent of the charge that is laid against me, I know not of one article being in the chest. On Sunday evening he was at the chest till near one o'clock, I thought he was putting in his clothes, as he was in the habit of putting them there, he always had the use of my chest to put in his linen and his clothes. When I came home at one o'clock, my landlady said that Kenny had lost a one pound note and two shirts. I made answer, that he had been out along with the girls of the town as usual; I did not suppose that he had lost any shirts; I offered two or three times to go and look in my chest, but he refused.</p>
<p>The prisoner called two witnesses who gave him a good character.</p>

<p>Q. Did you lose the halfpence on the 16th of December? - A. On the 15th I had suspicions of him, I sent for the constable on the 16th, his box was searched in my presence by the constable; the prisoner was standing by at the time.</p>
<p>Q. Upon opening of the box what did you find? - A. We found several papers of copper, some half-crown papers, some five shillings, and some two shillings; one half-crown paper I could swear to; the prisoner said at the time the paper might be mine, but I could not swear to the money.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Gurney.</p>
<p>Q. Can you swear to having wrapped up halfpence in this paper? - A. I have sworn to it; there were three or four half-crowns tied in such paper.</p>
<p>Q. It is such paper as all cheesemonger's use? A. No, not all, it is part of an old book.</p>
<p>Q. You buy all sorts of paper? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. I suppose other cheesemongers buy all sorts too? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. All you can say merely is, that you wrapped up some halfpence in some waste paper, and this paper is of the same description? - A. I know it is mine.</p>
<p>Court. How do you know that paper is yours? A. Because the other papers were tied up at the same time, and they correspond one with another, I know by the appearance of the hand-writing.</p>
<p>Mr. Gurney. Q. This kind of paper was laying about your shop to be used? - A. It was behind the counter.</p>
<p>Q. And therefore the prisoner being in your shop he might get it for any purpose that he wanted it for? - A. He might.</p>

<p>Q. Where did you find that parcel of copper money? - A. At the bottom of the box, he unlocked the box himself. I told the prisoner I thought it was strange of him having this quantity of halfpence; he said that he carried on business for himself at Hounslow, and had taken them in payment; the master said then he could swear to the paper, that he had told the prisoner to tie up between two and three pounds worth, and one of these parcels was the parcel that was missing; the prisoner said he might swear to the paper, but he could not swear to the money.</p>

<p>Q. Did you ever see it again? - A. Yes, I saw it again, at about seven o'clock in the evening at Lambeth-street office, Whitechapel; I knew it very well, the ticket was on it, and I took another breast of the same veal, and they matched.</p>

Yes, on the 4th of January, in company with Griffiths, I went to the prisoner's lodgings in Wentworth-street, Whitechapel, between eight and nine o'clock in the morning, and there I saw a side of veal.</p>
<p>Q. Was the prisoner there? - A. He was in the passage of the house close to the room; the prisoner told me it was his room; I asked him who the veal belonged to, he said it belonged to him; I asked him if anybody slept in the room along with him, he said nobody but himself; I asked him who brought the veal there, he said he did not know, he did not bring it there, it was his property. I employed a man to take it to the office, Mr. Hunt saw it there, and said it was the veal he had sold to Mr. Greenfield. At seven o'clock in the evening Mr. Greenfield saw it at the office, he examined it with another breast of veal, it appeared to be the same kind of veal.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. Please you, my Lord, I know nothing about the veal; I live at Mrs. Julian's, two doors of this side there; Mr. Nowland knows that I do not rent them rooms, he knew very well that Merrick rents them two rooms.</p>

<p>Q. Look round, and tell me whether the prisoner at the bar ever came to your mistress's house? - A. I think that is the same man, I am not quite certain.</p>
<p>Q. How long ago? - A. I think it was on the 7th of September, between ten and eleven o'clock in the morning: a person, whom I think was the prisoner, came to enquire for the place, I told him to walk in and sit down in the hall; he walked in; I asked him where he lived, he told me he lived three years in his last place in the country, I cannot tell his master's name. My mistress called me up stairs, I left him sitting on the bench in the hall, I went up to her bed room.</p>
<p>Q. Did any thing alarm you after you was gone up stairs? - A. As I was going up stairs I saw the man open the hall-door that goes into the street. He went into the parlour and took a basket of plate out.</p>
<p>Q. How do you know that? - A. I do know that I missed it.</p>
<p>Q. Did you hear any thing? - A. My mistress heard the plate basket move.</p>
<p>Q. Does the parlour door open into the hall? - A. Yes, and the dining-room, they both open into the hall.</p>
<p>Q. Whereabouts was you at the time that you saw the man open the door that leads into the street? - A. I saw him from the two pair of stairs.</p>
<p>Q. What did he do then? - A. I missed him out of the hall then.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see him go out of the door? - A. No, I could see the hall from the two-pair of stairs, and I looked down to it.</p>
<p>Q. What did you do upon this, seeing him open the door? - A. I ran down stairs and called my fellow-servant.</p>
<p>Q. When you got down stairs, was he in the hall? - A. No. I ran into the parlour, and the plate was missing from the parlour.</p>
<p>Q. When had you seen the plate in the parlour? - A. That morning, I carried it into the parlour.</p>
<p>Q. Where had you placed it? - A. On the tray-stand in the basket.</p>
<p>Q. What was in it? - A. There was a silver bread basket, a silver slop bason, two silver waiters, two silver salts, two silver salt spoons, two teaspoons, one desert spoon, one table spoon, eighteen silver four-pronged forks, a silver soup ladle, a small silver skewer, a silver snuffer stand, a silver butter knife, a pair of silver sugar tongs, and two silver bottle stands.</p>
<p>Q. Where they entirely of silver? - A. No, the rims were silver, and the bottoms wood.</p>
<p>Q. These things you were carrying in the morning, and you missed them when you come down stairs; did you ever see them again? - A. Yes, we got them all again.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see the prisoner go into the parlour? - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see him go out of the parlour? - A. No, only go out of the house.</p>

<interp inst="t18060115-22-person245" type="gender" value="female"/> </persName> ? - A. I was below stairs setting the breakfast things for my mistress. In consequence of the alarm I ran up stairs, (I heard my mistress call out); I looked round and I could see nobody, the door was nearly shut, I pulled open the street door, and as soon as I got out, I saw the prisoner at the bar with the basket of plate under his arm. He was about half-way up Welbeck-street.</p>
<p>Q. How was he moving with it? - A. He was running with it, he had the basket and the plate in it. I ran after him down Great Marybone-street. A gentleman that is here, hit him on the breast with an umbrella, and the plate fell out of the basket and I picked it up.</p>
<p>Q. How near was it to him when you came up to him? - A. I was very near to him when it fell from the prisoner's arms, I came up to him directly and picked it up, I carried it home to my mistress.</p>
<p>Q. What became of the prisoner? - A. He was taken to Marybone watchhouse.</p>
<p>Q. Is Welbeck-street in Marybone parish? - A. I believe so, I do not exactly know; he was taken to that watchhouse. I took the plate home. It was taken to Marlborough-street. I went in the coach with it and my mistress.</p>
<p>Q. What was the plate that you picked up? -
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180601150018"/>- A. A bread basket and slop bason, and tea spoons.</p>
<p>Q. One or two? - A. I cannot say. Two waiters, a pair of bottle stands, a small silver skewer, a snuffer stand, a pair of sugar tongs, one desert spoon, one table spoon, eighteen four-pronged forks, a soup ladle, a pair of salts, a pair of salt spoons, and a butter knife.</p>
<p>Q. Did you go with the prisoner to the watchhouse? - A. No, I went home with the plate,

I was in South-street on the 7th, between ten and eleven o'clock; I heard a noise, I stepped out and saw the prisoner running faster than any of the rest, I stopped him.</p>
<p>Q. Was he running in South-street? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Does South-street lead out of High-street? - A. Yes, into Blandford-street.</p>

<p>Q. Between ten and eleven o'clock where was he? - A. On my going along High-street, Marybone, I heard the cry of Stop thief, by Franklin, a former witness; upon hearing the cry, I turned round immediately, and I observed a person, whom I believe to be the prisoner at the bar, running towards South-street.</p>
<p>Q. He is so altered in appearance now that you cannot be positive as to his person? - A. Extremely so indeed; he had at that time a basket (which is at this moment in court) under his arm, I heard a great jingling in the basket, I supposed it to be glass bottles at the moment, I endaevoured to stop him, but thinking he might knock me down, he run so violent; I had an umbrella in my hand, the point of the umbrella went against his chest, he ran so violent that he ran against it, and every article fell out of the basket.</p>
<p>Q. What were the articles? - A. Those are the articles that I believe came out of the basket (pointing to them).</p>
<p>Q. What did they appear to you to be? - A. I conceived them to be plate.</p>
<p>Q. Did not you see them drop down? - A. By the umbrella coming against him, the basket flew off his arm, and a great jingling was the consequence; I believe it was that plate.</p>
<p>Q. You say there was something that jingled, the question is whether you saw what was the contents of the basket? - A. Not till after the prisoner was secured; immediately the prisoner passed me; I followed him instead of looking to anything that come from off his arm.</p>
<p>Q. How far did he run from you? - A. About two hundred yards up South-street, until he was stopped by the last witness; immediately upon his being secured by the last witness, I accompanied him so far as High-street only.</p>
<p>Q. Was that in the road to the watchhouse? A. It is, at the corner of High-street, I left the prisoner, and went to Mrs. Williams's house.</p>
<p>Q. You heard the cry of Stop thief by Franklin? - A. I did.</p>
<p>Q. Who was the person that was running? - A. I saw no person but the prisoner and Franklin.</p>
<p>Q. Was the man that you stopped the same person which the witness Fynnymore took into custody? - A. I believe him to be so.</p>
<p>Q. During the time that he run this two or three hundred yards, how far was you from him? - A. I was very near to him almost the whole time; I dare to say he gained upon me at one time forty or fifty yards, or rather better.</p>
<p>Q. During the whole time did any body else join in pursuit besides you and Franklin? - A. There were several persons endeavoured to stop him, but I could not perceive any body forwarder than me that was running after him, there might be but I did not see them; I was certainly the most forward at the corner of High-street; in South-street there possibly might be another or two following him before
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180601150019"/>me, I cannot say that positively, I did not see them to notice them.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Gleed.</p>
<p>Q. You cannot speak to the person of the prisoner having passed you with the basket on his arm? - A. I do not speak positively to the man, I have every reason to believe it is the man.</p>
<p>Q. I am not asking you collateral facts; you are not able to swear that is the man? - A. By no means, I never saw his face so as to make that observation.</p>
<p>Q. Which way was he going? - A. He was coming from Marybone-street towards the end of South-street, and at the corner of South-street was the very place that the umbrella hit against him.</p>
<p>Q. You thought it was the jingle of glass-bottles? - A. I did.</p>
<p>Q. You had not the curiosity to see whether it was glass that was picked up or plate? - A. I had not</p>
<p>Court. There was none running before the man that was stopped? - A. I did not see any running before that man that was stopped.</p>
<p>Q. You say there was only one corner that you run the umbrella against him; was there any other corner after that before he was stopped? - A. None.</p>

<p>Q. Did you ever see them before? - A. Never in my life.</p>
<p>Q. How came you to have any conversation with them? - A. The public house and wine vaults where I went to get my pint of twopenny was shut up, it was opposite of where I stood with my onions, in the Butcher row, Whitechapel.</p>
<p>Q. You enquired of them where there was a public house that was open? - A. Yes, they told me if I would go down the street with them, they would shew me a public house.</p>
<p>Q. Did you go with them? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Did you go into the public house with them? - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. How came you not to go into the public house? - A. They called out to a person of the name of George, they called George in the street; I asked them what they called George for, they told me that was always the name they called when it was late, because they knew their customers; they came behind me and knocked me down.</p>
<p>Q. Where was you at the time they told you the reason of calling out George? - A. In the street, they were by the side of me; I bid them good night and was coming away from them</p>
<p>Q. How came you to bid them good night, you had not got your beer? - A. Because I would not go any further with them; I catched the shortest of the two with her hand in my pocket.</p>
<p>Q. Had you turned round after you bid them good night? - A. No, I came strait back to go to my things again; I had left a little girl of eleven years of age to mind the basket in the street.</p>

<p>Q. She passed you then did she? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Being knocked down, what happened to you? - A. The tall one held me by the hair of my head, and kept her hand to my mouth, that I was not able to cry to any watchman or any thing else; my money was taken from me.</p>
<p>Q. Who took your money? - A. The short one, she took it out of my pocket apron.</p>
<p>Q. What money did she take from thence? -
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180601150022"/>A. I had five shillings and six-pence, in silver, and I had to the amount of thirteen shillings and six-pence, or fourteen shillings and sixpence, in copper.</p>

<p>Q. What happened after she had taken the money out of your pocket? - A. I did not see the shortest one till she returned.</p>
<p>Q. Why she had not left you? - A. Yes, when she had taken the money out of my pocket, she went away.</p>
<p>Q. Which way did she go? - A. I cannot tell which way she went, it was impossible for me to tell while the other held me down by the hair of my head.</p>
<p>Q. Did the tall one do any thing to you? - A. She only held me so, and kept me down by the hair of my head till the short one came back again in about ten minutes.</p>
<p>Q. Did she hold you down all that while with her hand on your mouth? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. About ten minutes you say? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Do you think it was as much as ten minutes? - A. Yes, I think it was.</p>
<p>Q. Then the shortest came back? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Was she holding of you down when the shortest came back? - A. Yes, she returned with a man with a brown coloured coat on, he fell down a-top of me, and then the girls ran away, I saw no more of them.</p>
<p>Q. Did they take any thing away besides your money? - A. My apron, cap, bonnet, and handkerchief, was taken from me while I was held down by the hair of my head, I missed them when I got up, I cannot tell who took them.</p>
<p>Q. How soon did the man go away after he fell down? - A. In about two minutes.</p>
<p>Q. What light was there in this street? - A. no light but the light of the lamps; it was under a lamp where I fell.</p>
<p>Q. You never saw them before that night? - A. No, I saw them on the Monday following, near the middle of Whitechapel, between the linen-draper's and the pump.</p>
<p>Q. Then you charged them with this, and had them taken up? - A. I looked at them stedfast in their faces; I watched to see where they went, I followed them down an alley to a skittle ground in Windfield-street; when they came there they called George, and some man looked out of the back part of the skittle ground, between the boards where the wood work was broken.</p>
<p>Q. Where did they go then? - A. I do not know where they went then, I turned round and saw no more of them; I went to the office and gave information, and they were apprehended.</p>
<p>Q. The two prisoners seem to be much smaller women than you; how came you not to get up, you seem to have sufficient strength? - A. I wished to keep my hands rather to myself.</p>
<p>Q. You thought proper to lye quiet for ten minutes while this girl held you down, rather than try to get up? - A. What could I do.</p>
<p>Q. You might have exerted your strength, and have tried? - A. How could I when she had me down by mere strength.</p>
<p>Q. You might have tried? - A. I did try.</p>
<p>Q. I did not understand you to have tried, just now you said how could you; I think if you had tried you might have overcome them? - A. I was afraid to do much, I was afraid of having a parcel of Jews about me; very possible if I had tried I might have lost my life.</p>
<p>Q. You thought then it was safer to lay quiet and let them do what they liked with you? - A. I was afraid I might loose my life they took the copy of my husband's freedom out of my pocket.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see any of your clothes again, your cap or your apron? - A. No, I was obliged to go home bare headed and bare-sided, I had not got so much as a cap to put on my head.</p>

<p>Q. Did you loose any of your property on the 8th of December? - A. I lost my purse, I was sitting in the bar at past twelve o'clock at night, I was sitting up till my family had put every thing to rights; having been ill for two days I dropped asleep, while the prisoner was in the bar.</p>
<p>Q. How long had the prisoner been in the bar? - A. He had been in and out of the bar all the evening, he lodged with me.</p>
<p>Q. He had been backward and forward in the bar several times? - A. Yes, he was like one of our own family.</p>
<p>Q. What is the prisoner? - A. I do not know; he said that he had property to receive at the India house, he came into the bar to supper, my family was gone to bed, I was there and he was left there, and when I awoke, he was gone.</p>
<p>Q. Was he at supper when you fell asleep? - A. No</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180601150024"/>Q. What was the last thing that you observed him to do before you fell asleep? - A. He had some peppermint to drink.</p>
<p>Q. How long had you been asleep? - A. I might have been asleep perhaps half an hour, I got up and went to bed, I did not miss my purse till the next morning.</p>
<p>Q. How was he placed respecting of you when you went to sleep? - A. He sat at a table not far from me, because our bar is very little. The next morning when I came down stairs, I missed my purse.</p>
<p>Q. When had you felt your purse before you found that you had lost it? - A. That evening, I had given change just before eleven o'clock.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure that you put your purse in your pocket again? - A. Yes, I am quite sure of that.</p>
<p>Q. What was in the purse? - A. Two ten pound notes, two five pound notes, two ones, two or three half guineas, and three or four seven shilling peices.</p>
<p>Q. What time of the day was it that you missed your money? - A. It was near ten o'clock; when I came down stairs he was gone, out of the house; I said to my husband that I thought he had got it, he went out of the house a little before nine o'clock, I never knew him to go out of the house before for the three weeks that he had lodged with me; my husband followed him, and he was brought back again; I see him brought back between eleven and twelve o'clock.</p>
<p>Q. Did any thing pass on his being brought back? - A. My husband accused him of picking my pocket, and he denied it; they took him into the parlour and insisted on searching him; I was present, he refused being searched, they insisted again on searching him, he said it is all right to my husband; when he came into the bar they took the purse from his pocket.</p>
<p>Q. Have you got the purse here? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Produce it (the purse produced)? - A. This is it.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure that is your purse? - A. Yes, the money has been in it ever since.</p>

<p>Q. Was the notes folded up in the same way? - A. I cannot say, it was folded up in the same way then as it is now. There is two ten pound notes, there is only one five now (there is one five gone), there is two half guineas, and four seven shilling peices, I am positive that was in my purse.</p>

This man came to my house on the 19th of November and he continued there till the 8th of December; during that time I used to let him make free with any part of the house below stairs, he was in the habit of spending a great deal of money, I could not account how he came by it, such as two or three guineas a day, he treated every body that came into the house; on the morning of the 8th of December my wife missed this purse, in consequence of that I made diligent search about the house; to see that it was not mislaid about the house; we found that it was not so, she supposed that he had taken it from her. In St. Martin's Lane I heard of him; he was gone with another man, I sent two or three people after him, at last a man came and said that they had found him at the Green Man in St. Martin's Lane. I went down myself, and took a constable with me and brought him back to our own house, we took him into the parlour and desired the constable to search him, he refused being searched, he wished, he said, to speak to me at one corner of the parlour, I of course heard what he had to say, he said all was right; I suppose he meant as to the money, however he said that.</p>
<p>Q. Did you understand what he meant by it? A. I judged it to be so; however he wished to speak to me in the bar a second time, after his things began to be stripped off to be searched, I went into the bar, he followed me with the constable, and he gave up to me the purse into my own hands; I took the purse into the taproom, and laid it on the table, and told it out for the constable to witness what it was that was brought back. The two ten pound notes I took of two gentlemen in partnership next door, I backed them; and one five I took of one Betts, No. 4, Fleet-lane, in Fleet-market; I rather objected to it when I took it, they have never been out of my possession since.</p>
<p>Q. Are they bank notes? - A. Yes; as to the other five, I do not know what became of that; as to the two one-pound notes there is nothing particular on them, I was satisfied that they were good, I took no further account of them; I can swear to the notes that I have marked; I sent him to St. Martin's watchhouse, and from there he was taken to Bow-street, and from there he was committed to Tothil-fields.</p>
<p>ROBERT - sworn. I am constable; Mr. Dellear came to me on Sunday morning, about ten o'clock; I went with him to the Green Man and apprehended the prisoner, and brought him back to Mr. Dellear.</p>
<p>Q. What passed then? - A. He refused being searched, he wished to speak to Mr. Dellear in the bar, he took the purse out of his pocket, and put it into Mr. Dellear's hand; Mr. Dellear said that was his purse.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. On that said night, when I was going to bed with my candle in my hand, I found that purse on the floor; I said to myself
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180601150025"/>I suppose I shall find an owner for that in the morning; I sat in the tap-room, a man came in, and says good morning to me, I had spoke to him before; after sitting a little while he says, I want to go out to get my shoes cleaned, he said will you go with me, I said with all my heart, I will go out and get my shoes cleaned; after that he asked me to have some beer, and he and I went into the house together that he had been speaking of, we sat a little while together, and the prosecutor and the constable came in, if I had any intention of going off with it, or had taken it with a design as is represented, I had time enough from three o'clock in the morning till eleven, but I did not intend any such thing.</p>
<p>The prisoner called no witness to character.</p>

On the 18th of December, the prisoner came in the shop between the hours of one and two in the afternoon; he asked to look at some muslin for neck handkerchiefs, about ten or twelve shillings a-yard, I told him I had none so good as that, I would shew him the best I had; I shewed him one at four shillings, he told me that was not good enough, he must go elsewhere and get them; with that he left the shop.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see any more of him in the course of that day? - A. In the afternoon between six and seven o'clock he returned to the shop, and brought another with him who was lustier than himself, he then asked me to shew him to i same muslin he had seen in the morning; I
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180601150026"/>reached a bundle of muslins which happened to be a bundle of worked muslins, I untied the string, I said this is not the right bundle; I was turning myself to reach the second bundle, I saw the prisoner go towards the end of my counter which is next to the window; the other young man was near me, to look at the muslin.</p>
<p>Q. What had you on the counter at that time? - A. I had placed single pieces of cloth and lawn, and two table-cloths, which had stood in the window in the day, the two table-cloths I had placed one at one corner of the counter near the window, and the other at the other; as soon as I had taken the second bundle of muslins from the shelf, I saw the prisoner with his left hand draw the table cloth from off the counter, and with his right hand he shoved it into his bosom.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see the table-cloth in his hand? - A. I saw him draw it from the window under the skirt of his coat, I cannot say I saw it in his hand, because I had hardly the glimpse of it, but I saw his hand draw it from the window, and I saw his right hand shove it into his bosom, as he drawed it; it appeared from under his coat; seeing what he had done, I threw down the second bundle of muslin, went round the counter, and set my back against the street door; I says to them gentlemen, you have more than belongs to you, I told them they had a table-cloth of mine, which had stood at the corner of the counter, I said it was there when they came in; the prisoner began swearing to me, I told him it was of no use to have words, and seeing a woman passing, I asked her to call the butcher in to my assistance; when I turned my back to let the butcher in, he chucked the table-cloth to the other side of the counter.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see him do it? - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. Then you only suppose that he chucked it there? - A. It was throwed over there by some means or other; my brother came in, he said go round and count the table-cloths; I had them in that morning, I had sold but one of them, I had nine sent in, and one I had sold, seven was on the shelf, and this one which the young man took, I found it doubled up in three creases on the floor; when I picked it up off the floor, the prisoner offered to purchase it of me ask what money I would for it; I told him I could not sell it.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure that you had seen this table-cloth in the situation that you describe? - A. When I went to open the door to let them in I saw one of his side on the counter, and one of my side. There was no other customer in the shop.</p>
<p>Q. Did you look to see if it had sell there, it might have been thrown down? - A. It was impossible, because no one had been there but myself.</p>
<p>Q. In what manner was the table-cloth folded up as it lay on the counter? - A. It was folded up as it came from the maker, I had never opened them.</p>
<p>Q. Was it folded up in the same manner when you saw it down on the floor? - A. No, it was in three doubles; by his shoving it in his bosom.</p>
<p>Q. What is the value of this table-cloth? - A. Five shillings.</p>
<p>Cross-Examined by Mr. Alley.</p>
<p>Q. I am sure you do not mean any thing wrong, you have told my lord you are positive that the prisoner chucked the table-cloth over the counter? - A. I am positive he must chuck it over.</p>
<p>Q. That is argument, you did not see it done? - A. No.</p>

The good lady swore before the magistrate that she saw me put something in my coat, now she swears she saw me put something in my bosom, and when she said to us, gentlemen, you have got more than you ought to have, she did not mention what she lost; I then immediately took off my clothes, and said I have nothing more than belongs to me, nor did I swear to her, neither did I make any resistance to get out, I said I would not.</p>
<p>The prisoner called five witnesses who gave him a good character.</p>
