I do; I saw the prisoner pass by the door as I was sitting in the counting-house, and as she was going out I went and asked her what she wanted, she said nothing, she had been speaking with the lady; I asked her what lady, she said the young woman, and from something that I saw projecting under her cloak I had some suspicions; I went and enquired of the servants if they had seen such a person, they said no; the first witness then went into the room to see if there was any thing missing; he immediately missed the tea caddy; we then went in pursuit of her, she was brought back to the house, I saw the tea caddy and the writing desk in her possession, and I went with her to the officer.</p>

Yes, I can swear that they belong to Mr. Williams, they were taken from the back parlour; I missed the tea caddy immediately the alarm was given, I had seen them she morning before, one of the seals in the desk was marked with a W, the other is a wafer stamp; I have no doubt but the whole is Mr. Williams' property.</p>

<p>Q. Have you any doubt of her being the person. - A. No, I was with her half an hour in Marlborough-street, I am sure she is the same person.</p>

<p>Q. How long have you known the prisoner. - A. About four years.</p>
<p>Q. Did you on this day that we have been speaking of, see the prisoner any where. - A. In Portland-street, St. James's, Westminster, about twelve o'clock in the day; I suspected her, and followed her into Poland-street, she stopped at the corner of Poland-street, in Oxford-street, and put something in her pocket and took something out.</p>
<p>Court. She was putting her hands in her pocket. - A. Yes, for about half a minute, and then walked on again, she turned into the sign of the King's Arms, in Poland-street, at Mr. Brown's, I staid out till she came out, and then I went in and enquired what she had changed there. Mrs. Brown produced this sixpence, she said this sixpence was the sixpence that she had paid her. I produce the sixpence. I rubbed the sixpence on the stairs with my foot, to ascertain whether it was a bad one, and marked it, and desired her to keep it by itself; I then followed the prisoner, and took her in custody, in Marlborough-street, close by the office; she immediately put her hand and took out this brown paper, I suspected she was going to throw it away, I immediately seized both her hands, and took her into the office, where after some time struggling, we got the paper out of her hand, I found it contained two more sixpences, which I now produce, I have had them ever since; I searched her, and found a red pocket book, a new tooth brush, and about thirteen pennyworth of new halfpence, here is six pennyworth of them, and Jackson has got the rest, they were all good copper; we had some discourse who gave charge of her, she said if I liked she need not be prosecuted, I told her it did not rest with me, it was with the gentlemen who conducted the mint, I should take her before the magistrate; at the office I received that sixpence of Mrs. Brown, I have had it ever since; I was in court at Clerkenwell when sentence was passed upon her.</p>

<p>Q. And these trowsers you put under your head. A.Yes, I had them under my head when they came on me; these three prisoners were along with the man that held me; the prisoner that stands outside took the trowsers away from me.</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180607020006"/>Q. What were the others doing there. - A. The young one, when they talked of one another's name, desired no name to be expressed.</p>

<p>Q. They took the money and the purse, and left the trowsers, how long had they been doing this. - A. They were about fifteen minutes as near as I can guess.</p>
<p>Q. Were you talking to them. - A. No, the man that held me was hurting me, I struggled to get from him.</p>
<p>Q. Was he a quarter of an hour kneeling upon you. - A. He was near a quarter of an hour, he used very odious expressions.</p>
<p>Q. Was it star light or moon light. - A. It was not moon light, it was very bright.</p>
<p>Q. Could you see their faces. - A. Yes, and the man who held me had a smock frock on, the others were dressed much as they are now, only one of them had not a white jacket on.</p>
<p>Q. Had you ever seen either of them before. - A. I might have seen them.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know whether you had or not. - A. I cannot say, because I was in that place a year before.</p>
<p>Q. Which way did they go when they left you. - A. They went out of the yard over into another yard of the other side.</p>
<p>Q. What did you do. - A. I was gathering up the things I had laying in the hay, they came into the back yard again and went over the meadows, they did not speak a word to me the second time, nor I to them.</p>
<p>Q. Did you follow them. - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. When did you give any alarm. - A. As soon as the public house was open in the morning, I told the waiter how I had been used.</p>
<p>Q. When did you see any of the men again. - A. That very morning, at six o'clock, I saw the man that held me.</p>
<p>Q. I am asking of them three men at the bar. - A. I saw them in the back yard the next day, and one of them struck me, that big man; I saw them all four together in the hay yard of the public house where I had been sleeping.</p>
<p>Q. Were they drinking in the house. - A. I saw them there, it was in the yard where they abused me, they came to me and asked me if they had robbed me, I said to the man that held me, these three men robbed me while you held me.</p>
<p>Q. Were they taken into custody at that time. - A. No, they went away to work, they wrought at Mr. Small's that lives just by the side of this place, I went to their master that they wrought with, and they abused me again, that was in the afternoon; I had not a farthing to go to any justice's on the day they robbed me, which was Thursday, but on Monday I went to Bow-street, and got an officer to take them up; one was taken in the same public house, one in his master's-yard, in the same place, and the other between the public house and his master's yard.</p>
<p>Q. Did you ever find your money again. - A. No.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Gleed.</p>
<p>Q. I presume that you (from your dialect) are an Irish labourer, and when you cannot get work at one place you go to another. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. You understand that these men are tried for their lives. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Do you understand there is a reward. - A. I do not know.</p>
<p>Q. Upon your oath, was not you told that. - A. I was told that I would get for my loss of time.</p>
<p>Q. Is this hay yard a place where Irish labourers sleep. - A. I do not know.</p>
<p>Q. Who slept there besides yourself. - A. There was another man that slept in the hay that saw every thing they did to me.</p>
<p>Q. Did you ask him to assist you in taking up these persons that had robbed you. - A. I did not.</p>
<p>Q. These men were on the spot from the Thursday to the Monday at work there. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Did they take any thing from the other man. - A. No, they spoke to him, he told him there were women enough if they would go to the other yard.</p>
<p>- COX sworn. I am one of the conductors of the patrole at Bow-street. I apprehended Baxter in the tap room, I apprehended Jarrard in Mr. Small's yard, and Althorpe I apprehended in a foot path opposite Mr Small's gate; the prosecutor pointed them out to me.</p>
<p>The prisoners said nothing in their defence.</p>

<p>Althorpe called one witness, who gave him a good character.</p>
<p>Baxter called three witnesses, who gave him a good character.</p>

<p>Q. Any person in the house. - A No, no person, I unlocked my lower room door, I found it locked as I left it, I went in to get some refreshment; after sitting in my lower room about ten minutes, I shut up the street door and went up stairs to put my little boy to bed; when I came up I found the door wide open, I ran down to the street door, and said to my neighbours, come in, somebody is in my top room, and three or four of my neighbours came up directly.</p>
<p>Q. When you got into the room did you perceive any alteration. -
<persName id="t18060702-6-person105">A. Ann Webb</persName> and another gentlewoman ran up with me; I perceived my box wide open, and every thing entirely out of it, without it was a few pieces of paper.</p>

I left my husband's watch, a silk mode cloak, a pink cotton gown, two cotton shirts, a waistcoat, a silver tea spoon, half a window curtain, a napkin, and three pair of men's stockings.

On Friday the 30th of May Mrs. Bedford applied to me between the hours of eight and nine in the morning, she told me her place had been broken open and she had been robbed; I went to her house with her, I met the woman prisoner in the alley, she was very much in liquor; I told her I was come after her, she said she was very glad of it, I told her to go up stairs and shew me her room; Mrs. Bedford, me, and the woman prisoner went up stairs together; in searching the room, at the foot of the bedstead I perceived some dirty linen, under which was this hammer, there was a large jar stood in the room with a small top to it; in that jar I perceived there was a pair of drawers and some other foul linen; it smelled in such a manner we could not take it out, I kept the hammer in my hand, I told the woman prisoner and Mrs. Bedford to go up stairs before me, that I might see in what manner the room was broken open; I then found the box was broken open with the claws of a hammer; and with the hammer that I have got in my hand; I fitted the claws to the marks on the box, it corresponded exactly in two different places, I then examined the door post, and there was the print of the claws of the hammer there; I brought the box and the woman down stairs: Mrs. Bedford followed us. A gentleman of the name of Palmer came over, he said that is my hammer, he said the woman prisoner borrowed the hammer of him about five o'clock; I told him that hammer had broken open this box. (The box, hammer, and shift, produced.)</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Alley.</p>
<p>Q. Was this conversation in the presence of the prisoner. - A. It was, Mrs. Bedford said she had a shift in such a state she could not well make away

<p>Q. Then if I understand you right, the shift was in the thigh of the prisoner's trowsers; where did you find the pitcher when you saw it a second time. - A. I saw it in the same place where I had seen it the day before.</p>
<p>Q. You knew the day before there was a shift lost. - A. Yes, but it was in a very awkward situation for me to search for it; there was an Irish woman there, she put her hands in, it smelt so I turned my head round and went to the other part of the room.</p>

<p>Q. Was there any body with you when you found it. - A. Yes, the man of the house, she said it had been there for a month; I asked her what was become of the money that was in it, she said that I had not a farthing of money in my box; then I insisted upon searching her pocket, she said she would not be searched without I had a search warrant; I can swear to the flannel, I wore it about my legs.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. I have been living with this man four years as his wife, these flannels were hanging on the line in the passage, he got up in a passion, and told me he would kick me down stairs: I tore my clothes from off the line and these flannels; they have been in my trunk ever since last May; he was mad and jealous because I was going to marry a Frenchman.</p>
<p>The prisoner called three witnesses, who gave her a good character.</p>

On the 10th of June last, returning from Kentish town, I had occasion to purchase some goods at Messrs. Fishers and Wells' in Fleet street; I paid for these articles in a five pound note, I received a two pound note in exchange.</p>
<p>Q. Was there any thing remarkable in the two pound note. - A. There was a shilling difference between the shopwoman and me, I cast it up outside of the note; when I returned home I put the note in a bag, which I generally put the money that I take of Mr. Hall, I placed the bag in a closet in the ware room, I locked the closet door, and put the key on the corner of a shelf (there was other money in the bag which I had received of him); I then went to market; this was about eleven or twelve o'clock.</p>
<p>Court. Had he access to that closet. - A. Yes, he sold medicine when I was out of the way, he was my clerk, in short he was every thing to me.</p>
<p>Mr. Gleed. How long were you absent. - A. I suppose not more than half an hour; in about half an hour after my return I went to my closet, I went to my bag, I observed the notes that I had put in very tight together were shook loose; I then said to Mr. Hall who has been here, have you sold any thing, he said nobody has been here; I then was very warm on losing my two pound note out of the bag.</p>
<p>Q. Are you perfectly sure that the two pound note you received at Fisher and Wells' you put in that bag. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Was that the two pound note that was missing. A. It was.</p>
<p>Q. I do not know whether any thing material passed between you and the prisoner. - A. I do not know any thing particular than I saw he was frightened, Mr. Swinton being there at the time I mentioned it to him; I went to the Mansion house about half past one, I had a coach and I went there very fast.</p>
<p>Q. How soon was the prisoner taken up. - A. Not on that day, it was the next day.</p>

<p>Q. You are a dealer in medicines are you. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. What sort of medicines. - A. Dr. Brodum's nervous cordial.</p>
<p>Q. And all Mr Swinton's medicines. - A. I did not come here about that.</p>

<p>Q. When you missed this two pound note you were very angry. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. You told him you had lost a two pound note, and we were told while you were out of court that he absconded, whoever said that told a falsity. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. No fault of yours; you went to the lord-mayor that day. - A. Yes, I did not see the lord-mayor, here was nobody at the mansion house nor at Guildhall, the next day I got an officer.</p>

<p>Q. Do you mean to say that you never heard that he gave information of that. - A. I have heard it about a week or a fortnight back, I believe it came from his own mouth.</p>
<p>Q. No, it came from better mouths than either his or yours; this young man was your clerk at Christmas, and from then you would have us believe that Mr. Swinton had nothing to do with the business; upon your oath did not Mr. Swinton settle the accounts with him from Christmas last. - A. No, never, except it might be a week or two I was out of town, and then Mr. Swinton gave it to me.</p>

<interp inst="t18060702-29-person284" type="gender" value="male"/> </persName> sworn. Examined by Mr. Alley. I am a sheriff's officer. On the 10th of June Mr. Swinton desired me to assist Kimber in taking the prisoner into custody; we apprehended him in Mr. Swinton's house in Salisbury square.</p>
<p>Court. You say at Mr. Swinton's house. - A. That is where they fell the Daffy's elixir.</p>
<p>Mr. Alley. What part of the house was he in when you took him in custody. - A. He was in the front parlour.</p>
<p>Q. Who was in the front parlour besides you and Kimber and the prisoner. - A. Mr. Swinton and Mrs. Kerslake.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see him searched. - A. I did, there was a two pound bank note found in his hat, the hat was upon a box about two yards from where the prisoner sat, Mr. Swinton called me out of the room and told me to search him closer, for he was sure he had not time enough to make away with it, he had not time enough to pass the note away.</p>
<p>Q. You have got a paper in your hand, is that the note you found in the hat. - A. It is.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Gurney.</p>
<p>Q. Who was it that fetched you on Tuesday evening. - A. Mr. Swinton came on the Tuesday, I was out, he came again on the Wednesday morning.</p>
<p>Q. You and Kimber proceeded to search the prisoner. - A. Yes, we found him in the parlour and Mr. Swinton, we searched him.</p>
<p>Q. I dare say when Kimber and you were searching him, you were very attentive to what you were about. - A. We were.</p>
<p>Q. And being attentive to what you were about, you did not keep your eye upon the hat. - A. We did.</p>
<p>Q. You went out of the room before you found the note in the hat; while you and Kimber were searching who was attending the hat. - A. I did.</p>
<p>Q. You did not stand watching the hat as I stand watching my bag. - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. After he was searched Mr. Swinton took you out of the room, and said, I know he has not had time to pass it away. - A. Yes, and he said he suspected it was about the hat.</p>
<p>Q. And then he came with you, who was it that suggested first upon looking into the hat. - A. It was me, the hat was laying with the open part upwards, I searched the hat first of all between the hat and the lining, then I saw the leather which is over the lining, I put my finger there and the note came out.</p>
<p>Q. It would not take long putting in there you know. - A. I cannot say nothing about that.</p>
<p>Q. It was put snug there, so that it could not be perceived by the wearer. - A. It could not he perceived by any body.</p>
<p>WILLIAM KIMBER sworn. Examined by Mr. Gleed. Q. What are you. - A. I am constable of the city of London.</p>
<p>Q. On the 10th of June were you called upon to attend at Mrs. Kerslake's house in Salisbury-square. A. I do not know whose house it was, I went to No. 46, at the shop where Daffy's elixir is sold, I searched the prisoner and found nothing on him.</p>
<p>Q. At the time that you began searching the prisoner what persons were in the room. - A.Mr. Swinton, Mrs. Kerslake, Weatherfield, myself, and the servant maid; I was present when the hat was searched, I saw the note pulled out by Weatherfield; the same persons were present when the hat was searched; I took the prisoner to the Counter, I then went to the prisoner's house 250, Bermondsey-street, Mr. Swinton, Mrs. Kerslake, and Weatherfield went with me, we searched his house, and in a room up stairs in a chest of drawers we found a silver table spoon, I presented the spoon to the lady, and afterwards I gave it to Weatherfield.</p>
<p>Q.(to Weatherfield) Did you receive the spoon from the last witness. - A. I did, I produce it.</p>
<p>Prosecutrix. It is my spoon, we had a careless servant, she used my spoons in the kitchen in the common way, she notched the edge of it; and this is the note I received at Messrs. Fishers's and Wells, I observe here is some casting up at the back of it.</p>
<p>Mr. Gurney. There is no mark on the spoon, there is no cyphers nor crest, you cannot swear to the spoon, because your cook stirred the pot with it you are not the only person that has had a careless servant that used a spoon in that way, how long had you missed this spoon. - A. About three months.</p>
<p>Jury. We do not find any notch on the spoon.</p>
<p>Mr. Gurney. (to Kimber) When you searched the prisoner you found a pocket book, have you got the
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180607020020"/>pocket book. - A. I never had the pocket book in my possession.</p>
<p>Q.Upon your oath did not you give it to Mr. Swinton or to Mrs. Kerslake. - A. I cannot say.</p>
<p>Weatherfield. He gave it to me, I gave it back to the prisoner.</p>
<p>Q. Did not you take out all the memorandums, and give them to Mr. Swinton. - A. I gave two memorandums to Mr. Swinton, he said it was his weekly accounts; Mr. Swinton took them.</p>
<p>ANTHONY DAFFY SWINTON sworn. Examined by Mr. Alley. Q. Were you present at the time the prisoner at the bar was searched at Salisbury-square. - A. Part of the time I was, I partly saw him searched.</p>
<p>Q. During the time that you was there was any thing produced by either of the officers as being found upon him elsewhere. - A. There was a paper containing a copy of weekly accounts in red ink of Mrs. Kerslake's, I gave it to Mrs. Kerslake.</p>
<p>Court. (to Mrs. Kerslake) Have you got it here. - A. No, I believe I have destroyed it; it was only figures in red ink.</p>
<p>Mr. Swinton. He has been in the habit of keeping the same account with me.</p>
<p>Mr. Alley. Did you desire the constable to take up the hat. - A. I did not to my recollection, nor any body else in my hearing.</p>
<p>Q. Was there a note produced. - A. There was a note produced in the parlour; I do not recollect seeing it found; it was shewn to me after it was found.</p>
<p>Q. Upon your oath had you ever seen that note before it was produced to you by the constable. - A. I never had.</p>
<p>Mr. Gurney. When did this happen. - A. I am not quite perfect as to the day, it was on the 11th I believe.</p>
<p>Q. You had been in the house on the 10th. - A. I believe I had.</p>
<p>Q. Do you not know that you had. - A. I am not certain, I must have been there.</p>
<p>Q. I know you must have been there. - A. I had been there because I went over the water with Mrs. Kerslake to the Borough.</p>
<p>Q. What time were you there. - A. I was there in the morning, at noon, and in the evening.</p>
<p>Q. And by accident you was there the next morning. - A. I was there expressly for the purpose the next morning.</p>
<p>Q. Then it was not by accident you were there the next morning. - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. I suppose you told the officer to search, and you, and Mrs. Kerslake retired to another room. - A. I called them out and told them to be particular in searching, for one grand reason, because I knew him to be a very artful man.</p>
<p>Q. When was it Mr. Swinton that you had the misfortune to become a bankrupt. - A. It was sometime in March that the commission was issued.</p>
<p>Q. You were anxious to get the commission superseded. - A. I do not know whether I am obliged to give you an answer, if his lordship orders it I shall.</p>
<p>Court. Do you not know that Hall had given an unfavourable account of you on the 10th of June. - A. I knew it on the 11th when his house was searched.</p>
<p>Mr. Gurney. Perhaps you do not know that Mr. Hall had given any information of your concealing your property. - A. I did not at that time; I knew it on the 11th, I traced it by a letter to Mr. Hindman, and also a letter to the solicitor of the stamp office, wherein Mr. Hall had given information of Mrs. Kerslake selling medicines without stamps, whereas he had concealed these stamps.</p>
<p>Q. How long has this been Mrs. Kerslake's house. - A. I think she took it of Mrs. Steele, who was a tenant of mine.</p>
<p>Q. You have visited this young man in Newgate. - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. In the Counter then I suppose - A. I did, twice.</p>
<p>Q. Now, Mr. Swinton, I ask you this question, attend to the question, and give a deliberate answer, did you upon either of the occasions upon your visiting him in the Counter, tell him that you would forbear prosecuting him, provided he would sign a paper tendered by you to him, respecting all that he had sworn, denying what he had sworn before the commissioners. - A. I never said any thing to him, he put the question to me, he asked me to forfeit my recognizance, I said how can you expect that of me when you have acted so unjustifiable; I never did tender a paper to him, I sent my son with a paper for him to sign, but without any conditions annexed to it, my counsel has the paper at this moment, my son brought it back unsigned. (A paper handed to the witness.) That is the paper. (The paper read, in court, and two letters sent by the prisoner to the witness.)</p>
<p>Q. Then you wanted this man to sign a paper that he had been guilty of perjury, without holding out any promise whatever. - A. I did.</p>
<p>Q. You told me that Mrs. Kerslake took this house last May twelvemonth, of Mrs. Steele, who was a tenant of your's, who paid the rent of that house. - A. The two last half years she has paid the rent to Mr. Emden of Furnival's-inn.</p>
<p>Q. Do you mean to tell me, upon your oath, that Mrs. Kerslake has ever paid you any rent for that house, to you bona fide payment, aye or no; I am asking about the rent of that house she took of Mrs. Steel, whom you say was your tenant, while Mrs. Steel was your tenant she was to pay it to you; has Mrs. Kerslake paid you any rent. - A. No, she has paid it to Mr. Emden, who purchased the house of me, I did not wish it to he known, I disposed of it to Mr. Emden, about two years ago.</p>
<p>Q. Did not you direct Weatherfield to search the hat. - A. I desired him to search his hat, his neckcloth, and every where else.</p>

<p>Q. Did you accompany your father to the Counter. - A. I did.</p>
<p>Q. Was the prisoner Hall there. - A. He was.</p>
<p>Q. Was any thing said by your father to induce Hall to make the communication, whatever it might be, that was made. - A. No.</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180607020021"/>Q. Was that communication, whatever it might be, afterwards reduced to writing. - A. It was, I heard the communication made by Hall, and what was reduced to writing was the communication made by Hall in my presence, as near as possible, word for word.</p>
<p>Q Is this the paper. - A. It is, I took it to Mr. Hall, I asked him whether he would swear to the contents of this paper; he read it over and said he had no objection, except at the beginning something about Mrs. Kerslake, he said my father ought to come himself, and then he would have done it.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Gurney.</p>
<p>Q. Without any sort of promise made by your father, he opened his mouth and said all this. - A. No, he began crying when my father went in, and said how good a master he had been to him.</p>
<p>Q. You did not ask him to sign it. - A. No, I only asked him to swear to it, I wanted him to write it down, I did not want him to copy that, but to write it out of his own head.</p>
<p>Q. He said he would swear to it if your father came. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. You did not tell your father that he had refused to sign it. - A. No, I told my father if he would go he would do it, I never asked him to sign it, but to swear it when he had writ it over.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. My observation to that is, that it is all false. When I was in the Poultry Counter I wrote to Mr. Swinton to come there, that was only to know from him what he had put me there for; at that time I never knew what it was for. On Tuesday morning Mrs. Kerslake had been out twice, once she went out to market, she put some money in a canvas bag, which Mr. Swinton bought for the purpose during the whole time I settled the books with him, and she was put out of the way that she should not be subpoena'd; I said to Mrs. Kerslake I do not think you have lost the two pound note, Mr. Swinton said, no d - n her, she has not lost the two pound note no more than you have; about half an hour after that he said, will you go up and look for Dr. Brodum's day book, he said you had better take off your coat you will dirty it; I thought he was making fun of me, it was an old coat, I would not, I was going up, he said stop till my son Anthony comes in; then he sent me down to fill some bottles with Dr. Brodum's medicines, when Mr. Swinton said I might go home early that evening if I liked, as he had some gen-men coming there, consequently I went home about six o'clock that evening; the next morning I went in at the back gates (there is a communication made backwards to convey the goods from one house to the other, neither is the business at this time Mrs. Kerslake's no more than it is mine; Mrs. Kerslake keeps false books to shew the commissioners, which she has shewed me), when I went in that morning I laid my hat down, he (Swinton) said, Mr. Hall you had better go down and fill some nervous; before I had done that, he said to me, have you written out these false accounts to give the assignees, I said I have not, he said will you be so good as to write them out now, I made half a dozen pens out of some quills, I said to Mrs. Kerslake will you have the goodness now to let me have the writings to copy, she said I should have them presently, she walked out again, I sat down for about twenty minutes or half an hour, she came to the door herself with two constables, she says there is your prisoner, I give you charge of him; they searched me, and while I took off my coat Mr. Swinton tapped the officer on the shoulder, took him out in the passage and came back again, he says where is your pocket book, I gave them the pocket book, they took out a paper containing an account of what I I had received and paid, after that he tapped the man on the shoulder again, and took him out, and when he came in he said where is your hat, I said that is my hat, with that he took hold of my hat, takes out a paper, he says this is it, and took and gave it to her, he then asked Mrs. Kerslake what the note was.</p>

<p>Prisoner's Defence. (read in court) My lord, I humbly beg your lordship will take these few lines into your kind consideration, of the hardships of an unfortunate orphan, for so I may call myself, having no mother, and my father having left me to God and the wide world, for when I went to him thinking to find a home, he cruelly told to go on the town and to get my living as I could; unfortunately for me, when I was turned from his door I met with a gentleman who gave me twelve shillings, which to my misfortune were bad; having no gown but one I had borrowed, I thought I would buy one with the money he had given me; I bought the gown of the shopman, the master was not there, after I gave him the money he took it to some gentlemen that were in the back parlour, and after that he took it to the others that were at the door; I hopeyour lordship will take pity on my tender age, and my being entirely inexperienced in the world, and my great distress, being entirely without friends; upon my bended knees I humbly beg you will shew me mercy, and save me from utter ruin.</p>
