<p>Q. Was he running or walking. - A. He was walking.</p>
<p>Q. He was going the same way that you was. - A. No, he met me, he kicked my heels up and fetched me a blow over the side of my cheek, I fell on my back, and the prisoner demanded my property.</p>
<p>Mr. Vaillants. What did he say when he demanded your property. - A. He said d - n your eyes, give me your property; he first attempted at my watch, he put his hand into my left hand pocket.</p>
<p>Q. Was that your breeches pocket. - A. Yes, I had a ten pound note in that pocket, and a one pound note, one guinea, some silver, a silver tooth pick, and a small key, he took part of which, leaving the one pound note, and one guinea, and one shilling, in my pocket.</p>
<p>Q. He did not take the whole contents of your pocket out. - A. No; the prisoner then ran round the bason towards Kensington Gardens, I pursued him a short way, but I did not think it prudent to follow him in that direction; I came back into the same road again.</p>
<p>Q. What road. - A. The foot path in Hyde Park; I thought that he belonged to the barracks in that neighbourhood. I went to Portman-street barracks, I asked the centinel how long the roll call would be, he said in ten minutes, and I described the prisoner.</p>
<p>Q. You did not find him that night. - A. No, I stated that I had been robbed, I described his person to the centinel and to the sergeant, in the orderly room; they brought down one man in the same dress, he was not the man.</p>

<p>Q. Now look at the prisoner at the bar, and consider he stands upon his life, again recollect, as well as upon the oath you have taken, whether you are convinced that he is the man that robbed you. - A. That is the man.</p>
<p>Q. Have you any doubt. - A. No doubt at all.</p>
<p>Q. Have you the least particle of doubt, if you have speak it. - A. I have not the least doubt; he is the man.</p>
<p>Court. Had you seen him between the time that you saw him in Hyde Park, and that morning you was sent to after you was robbed. - A. No, not till the morning I saw him at the barracks.</p>
<p>Mr. Vaillant. When you pointed him out as the man that robbed you, was any thing said to him. - A. No, there was nothing said to him.</p>
<p>Q. When you accused him of having robbed you did he say any thing. - A. He said he would make his defence when he came before a magistrate; he was taken to Bow-street.</p>

<p>Court. Can you read. - A. No.</p>
<p>Mr. Vaillants. By a bill what do you mean. - A. A piece of thin paper.</p>

A bank note; I gave it back into his hand, says he I will tell you what to do with it, put it into your big coat pocket, and roll the coat up, and if the gentleman comes here to day, and knows me, he cannot find any thing on me; I put it in my big coat pocket, and rolled my coat up. On Monday morning we were going on guard, it rained that morning, we put our big coats on; he went to the Queen's guard and I went to the King's guard, we went up for our messes for our dinners, he was there before me, he waited there till I came there, he said to me we will go and change it, he told me that he would go and have a pot of beer and change it.</p>

<p>Court. She told you that she could not change it. A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. After she told you that she could not change, what did she do with it. - A. She gave it into my

When we went in there he called for a pot of beer and change for a pound note; we went into the tap-room and sat down, I pulled it out of my big coat pocket and put it into his hands; he looked at it.</p>
<p>Q. What, the prisoner. - A. Yes, he looked at it, he told me, and he said it is ten pounds; says I, if it is I will have nothing at all to do with it; you fool, says he, Shaw will not take any notice of it, because says he there is not much difference between calling for change of a one pound note and a ten pound; the landlord brought the pot of beer; he gave the note to me, says he give it to him.</p>
<p>Mr. Vaillants. Who said so, the prisoner. - A. Yes, I took it out of his hand, and gave it to the landlord.</p>

The note; I gave it to the landlord, and the landlord took it into the bar; we stopped there and we drank three pots of beer, the landlord did not seem to bring the change. I went out about half past two o'clock and made water; when I came back I asked the landlord for the change, he told me it was ready there if I would come forward; he gave me the change of a one pound note on the table that he called for. He asked me if I knew what I had given him, I told him it was a ten pound note; he gave me in change a five pound note and four one pound notes. We went out from there.</p>
<p>Q. What, you and the prisoner. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. What did you do with the change. - A. We went out from there, and I says, Robert says I, you shall have every farthing of it. I pulled it out of my pocket, and gave it him into his hand, he took the five pound note out of the rest, and a shilling dropped when I took it out of my pocket; he told me that he would not have any more, that he would give me the rest.</p>
<p>Q. Was Mr. Shaw, the keeper of this house present at the time that you divided the money. - A. No, he was not, we were out of the house at the bottom of the paved alley.</p>

<p>Prisoner's Defence. I was coming from Westminster on that Saturday night; near Hyde Park corner I met Mr. James, and as he was passing by me he looked me in the face very hard and turned back and followed me very near up to the bason. He asked me what o'clock it was, I told him that I thought it was between eight and nine o'clock; I was going to go on the right hand side of the bason, and he took to the left side of the bason; he asked me to come after him, as he said he would give me something to drink. He asked me where I had been, I told him that I had been in Westminster; he says, you get plenty of fun there with the girls, yes says I there is plenty of girls there; he says had you ever any connection with a man, no says I nor never will, I would not with such a thing as that, it is quite against human nature, says I. He says if you will go along with me I will give you this, and he pulled something out of his pocket, a piece of paper, I did not know what. I asked him if I should look at it, he gave it into my hands, I did not know what it was besides it was a bank note, I did not know what note it was, it was too dark to see; when I had the note in my hand I gave him a push while he was down, and I ran away to the barracks, The next morning Gibbons came up to my bedside and he awoke me, I cannot say what time in the morning it was, it was not day light; says he there has been some robbery committed in the Park last night, says I I cannot help that; says he I am told it was you, I never robbed any body says I, I am sure. Says he if you have robbed him and if you have got any notes about you, the best way is to give the notes to me to put in my great coat pocket for fear of a search, I gave him the note, I did not know what note it was, he put it in in his great coat pocket and rolled the great coat up. We went on guard on the Monday, we took our great coats, unrolled them, and put them on just at Constitution hill; he went on the King's guard and I on the Queen's guard; we met at the barracks at dinner time. After we had done dinner we went out together, I told him we had better change the note. We went to one public house, they would not change it; then we went to the paved alley to Mr. Shaw's and got change, we drank three pots of beer and went out to the bottom of the paved alley, I told him that we must part the money, I got a five guinea note, he had the rest. I was on the Queen's guard when I was took, I was brought up to the King's guard, they asked me several questions about this robbery, and I denied it. They marched me up prisoner to the barracks, they tried me by the company and punished me that afternoon; I was put in the black hole all night, and I was taken to Bow street the next day.</p>
<p>Court. (to Gibbons) You have heard the story that the prisoner has been telling. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Did he tell you any thing of this story about James. - A. No, he did not tell me nothing.</p>
<p>Q. He did not tell you how he came by the bank note. - A. No, he did not.</p>
<p>The prisoner called one witness, who gave him the character of a good soldier.</p>

In the struggle I fell upon my knees, and the other parcel fell on the ground; he ran away with the largest parcel, I took up the other things and alarmed the watchman as much as I could. I ran away without my hat, which I left in the road.</p>
<p>Q. Was your hat knocked off. - A. It fell off, striving to protect my property. I saw the watchman coming down Charles street, he sprang the rattle, but we could see nothing of the person; after that a gentleman came and said that he saw a man running towards the river, Palace yard way.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see the face of the person that run against you in Downing street. - A. No, I could not, he drawed me down momentarily.</p>
<p>Q. You do not know it was the prisoner. - A. No, his face I could not see, it was such a sized person as the prisoner.</p>
<p>Q. Did you find your bundle afterwards. - A. Yes, in about three quarters of an hour after he was apprehended by the gentleman; he was taken into the toll house by the Marsh gate.</p>
<p>Q. Did the person that took the parcel from you strike you. - A. He pulled me with all his force, I resisted all that I could, he took it at once from under my arm.</p>
<p>Q. Then according to your account of it, he snatched it from you and ran away. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. He did not stay any time talking with you. - A. Yes, he did, a few minutes, he wanted to get more if he could.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Gleed.</p>
<p>Q. The bundle was immediately snatched from you by the person, whoever he was, it was a sudden jar. - A. Yes, he pulled and hauled me into the middle of the road, he was trying to get all he could.</p>
<p>Q. You had but two bundles, and one fell, he could not get more than you had. - A. I had two parcels and a bundle.</p>

<p>- COUGHLAND sworn. On the 13th of November, about a quarter past twelve, I was going up Parliament-street, I heard the cry of Stop thief, on coming up I saw the prosecutor without his hat, and in great confusion, he said he had been knocked down and robbed of a large brown paper parcel, containing cloth and velvet, I told him I saw a man run towards the old houses that are pulling down in Palace yard; I was afraid of following him among the old houses for fear of hurting myself; I was going to sleep at Walworth that night; as I was passing the Marsh gate turnpike, the prisoner at the bar past me about a quarter of an hour after this happened; he had a large bundle under his arm, answering the description of that which the tailor had been robbed of; the idea suggested to me was that it was the prisoner who had robbed the tailor, I communicated my suspicion to the watchman, and requested him to assist me; coming up to the prisoner I asked him who he was, and where he had got that parcel, he told me that he was a master tailor, he told me that he had got some cloth in the bundle, at first he said he could not tell, I said to him he must come along with me and the watchman; we brought him into the toll house, upon which I sent a young man that was with me to see if the prosecutor was still on the bridge, he returned with the prosecutor, who identified every thing that was in the bundle.</p>
<p>- sworn. I am a watchman. About one o'clock this gentleman came up to me, and said there was a man passed that had knocked a man down, he asked me if I would go with him and stop him, I did; when I got up to the prisoner I asked him what he had got there, he told me cloth, the gentleman was close to me, he says that is the man; I asked him what he was myself, he said he was a master tailor, I told him he must go with me to the turnpike where there was a light, that I might see what he had got; when we came to the light I saw he had a blue apron tied round him. I asked him how long master tailors had wore blue aprons, he said that was nothing to me, I asked him where he lived, he said at home; that is all we could get from him. The prosecutor then came back from the bridge, we asked him what he had got in the bundle, he told us all that was in it before we opened it; I told the prisoner he must go with me to the watchhouse, he said he would be d - d if one or two should take him, we took him to the watchhouse, and going along he was very rough indeed.</p>

On Wednesday the 12th of November, about eleven o'clock in the forenoon, I went into Long Acre after some work, I returned about a quarter past twelve; the person that occupied the kitchen in the same house called me, I went to her and I stopped about ten minutes, I returned up the back stairs which lead into the passage, and on getting to the end of the passage I saw the prisoner come down my stairs; my own dog came to the street door and barked violently at the prisoner. I noticed the prisoner, and I saw that she had something bulky under her petticoats, I noticed her the second time, I then saw something white dragging upon her legs, I thought she looked very suspicious. I immediately went to my own door, and upon trying the latch I found the door had been unlocked by a key; I had left my door double locked when I went out. On entering the room I perceived that my bed clothes were taken off the bed, I immediately missed my sheets, they had been taken off the bed. I pursued the woman that I had met in the passage, and when I came to the street door I saw
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180612030015"/> her turn the corner of Monmouth street to go into Great St. Andrew street. I took hold of her right arm, and I said my good woman what have you got concealed under your petticoats, I took the corner of her apron on one side, and I perceived a new cotton gown of mine pinned round her waist. I brought her back to the door myself, I met my landlady, I begged her to assist me, we went into my landlady's shop, I asked her where my sheets were; my landlady took hold of her by her right arm till such times she had shuffled the sheets off, which were concealed round her two thighs; during the time that my landlady had hold of the prisoner's arm, there came a key out of her bosom, which key I tried, and it opens my door. I sent for a constable and had her taken before a magistrate. I produce the things, I have had them ever since; the gown is mine, and the sheets they are marked by myself.</p>
<p>Q. Now just state what is the value of the gown and the sheets. - A. Eighteen shillings; and the sheets twenty-four shillings; the sheets cost me thirty-six shillings and eight pence, and they have been washed twice.</p>
<p>Q. The life of the woman depends upon the value of the things taken from you, therefore be particular. - A. I can swear to the value of the gown being worth eighteen shillings, and the sheets are worth twenty four shillings.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Can you stand there and say that you saw me upon the stairs. - A. I saw you come down the stairs and go into the passage.</p>

<p>Q. Did you see any of the things that were taken from her. - A. While I had hold of her arm Mrs. Ennis said that was the gown that was round her waist, I knew it to be Mrs. Ennis's gown; a person called to me, they said Mrs. Button, there are some keys laying on the floor, and these scissars.</p>

On Monday the 27th of October, a young man, a pawnbroker, called at the office and desired me to go with him to his master's house in the Minories, they had stopped a man there.</p>
<p>Q. Did you go with him. - A. I did; when I
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180612030017"/> came there the man was standing in the shop.</p>
<p>Q. Which man. - A. The prisoner. I desired the pawnbroker to shew me into a back room, that I might search him; he shewed me out into the back yard, where I searched him. In his pocket I found this purse, containing two foreign pieces of silver, one guinea in gold, three sixpences; there were four sixpences, one shilling, and a seven shilling piece in gold, which I gave him since. One of the foreign pieces is half a dollar, American; these are them that I found, and this is the purse (producing them). In his coat pocket I found these two handkerchiefs, this white handkerchief is in the indictment. When I had done searching of him the pawnbroker reached me this watch before him, saying this is the watch which the prisoner at the bar offered for pledging. I asked the prisoner then where he got this watch, he said it was his own property and he had it some time. After that I took him to the office before the magistrate; upon his examination the magistrate asked him where he got this watch.</p>
<p>Q. Was the examination taken in writing. - A. I cannot say; his answer was, he bought the watch at Colchester, that he gave four pounds for it, and that he had it four years in wear; the magistrate asked him as he had it so long if he knew the number of it, he said no, he did not recollect the number. I was desired by the magistrate to hand the watch to him and let him look at it, he desired him to open it, he opened the first case, he could not open the other at all; I then took the watch from him, he was committed for re-examination. I went round the next day, and going to one Mr. Webb, a watchmaker, a quaker, in Red Lion street, Clerkenwell, that is how I found who belonged to it.</p>
<p>Q. We are told that both the watch, key, and seal, are gold, do they appear so to you. - A. They do, the outer and the inner case are all gold, it is what they call a double bottom.</p>
<p>Q. Can you form any idea what is the value of that watch. - A. I should suppose this watch is worth sixteen or seventeen pounds at the lowest, I would give that for it.</p>
<p>Jury. It is well worth twenty pounds.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. On Monday I came to Mr. Blake's house, I was employed by one Mr. Dowe, a painter. I had a man that was at work with me at the same time.</p>

<p>Prisoner. It was nearly nine o'clock when he came, I did not go to work till he came; when he came he said he would finish the lower part of the house first, accordingly we did; I said I will take the machine for you, you can get out of the window better than me; he said, we have finished this work, Mr. Blake desired the door and frontispiece to be finished, he desired to have some porter. Mr. Blake allowed us sixpence a-day, the sixpence is there, he said you had better go and ask the coachman for it, I went to the coachman, with that he gave me the sixpence. I went for the beer, and on coming back I did not see my partner, I drank out of the beer and took it to the coachman; after he had drank I went to put the beer between the shrubbery and the door. During that time I saw part of the property that is produced here lying among the rubbish, I went to the public house, I acquainted the landlord, I said I did not know how it was, but there is some property that I found belonging to the young gentlewoman that is in the house; with that I stopped till four or five o'clock.</p>
<p>Q. You stopped where. - A. At this public house till four or five o'clock; with that I said to the landlady I do not hear of any person that owns the property, I will keep it till it is owned. With that I came along with three or four friends, I did not know whether I might not be deprived of this property. I thought I might pledge it for a small quantity of money, it might be more secure till such times as I went to my work again.</p>

<p>Q. It is so now. - A. No, that is burst out, the hole is in the same place.</p>
<p>Q. Now look at these two foreign pieces, do you believe these to be the same two foreign pieces that were in the purse. - A. Yes, as near as I can tell. One has an eagle on it, and the other has a hole in it.</p>

<p>Q. Had you particularly looked at the watch. - A. Yes, but I never opened it. I have lived in the family a great while, I have been in the habit of taking it from the pillow every morning; my mistress always put the watch under the pillow when she retired.</p>

<p>Q. Did you open the pocket book in the presence of the prisoners. - A. Yes, they were looking at me. I had a five pound bill and a two pound bill, I put them safe in my pocket book, and I put my pocket book inside of the lining of my jacket, and my jacket I put under my head and went to bed; these women came to bed to me. I soon fell asleep.</p>
<p>Q. What, was you in liquor. - A. No, I had been drinking.</p>
<p>Q. You were a little in liquor. - A. I was a little in liquor.</p>
<p>Q. Being in liquor you fell asleep. - A. Yes. In the morning I awoke about four o'clock, I looked for the two women, they were both gone, and the jacket under my head was gone. I rose up in the bed, I found the jacket laying upon my feet, I looked in my pocket book, I found my money was gone all but sixpence and three halfpence; I stopped there till daylight to get a constable; he searched the place, but there was nothing there. I waited about the street for the purpose of taking them. About eleven o'clock they both came home together, I went into the house after them, I said good morning to them; they said they did not know me. I went up stairs after them, I asked them for my money, they denied it and said they had none; I staid in the room with them about five minutes, they both denied having any of my money. I came down to get a constable, I was no sooner down stairs but they were down stairs after me making their way up the street, I made them walk back to the watchhouse, and gave them to Mr. Hart the constable; he searched them in the watchhouse.</p>
<p>Q. Was you by yourself. - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know whether he found any thing upon them. - A. He said not.</p>
<p>Q. Did you ever meet with your bills or notes afterwards. - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. You could not find out where either of them changed this five pound note. - A. No, they bought new gowns and new pattens.</p>
<p>Q. You did not see them buy it. - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. Were the prisoners sober. - A. Yes, when I saw them.</p>
<p>Q. You had some liquor with them. - A. We had a pot of porter together before we went home.</p>
<p>Q. You tell us that they left you in the night, what had you one of one side of you and one of the other. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. What, did not you perceive them get out of bed. - A. I did not.</p>
<p>Q. Was it a very large bed. - A. Not very large, it was big enough for three to lie in.</p>
<p>Q. Who went out first you do not know. - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. Nor whether they went out separate you do not know. - A. No, they both came home together.</p>
<p>Ellison's Defence. I know nothing of the man's money; when he met with us he said he had only a few shillings, which he laid out, and if we would let him sleep with us he would pay us the next day when he got his money.</p>
<p>Barker's Defence. He said that he had not above two or three shillings, and that he was going to lay out, he was going to get some money the next day; we never saw any thing of his money, he lost his money before we saw him, he said he had been to the play.</p>
<p>Q. (to prosecutor) What time did you go to the play. - A. At eight o'clock.</p>
<p>Q. Where was the place that you went to the play. - A. Upon my life I cannot speak the name of the street, somewhere in Whitechapel.</p>

<p>- SIMES. I am a publican, I live at the Blue Anchor, Wormwood street. On the 19th of November a young man called me out of the bar to the door, he said he suspected that some person was going to rob Mr. Lack. When I went to the door the prisoner at the bar was in the middle of the road with a piece of cloth under his arm, he immediately went up to Mr. Lack's window and pulled out another piece. When he had done that he went into the middle of the road. One person out of the two that were waiting on the other side of the road, came to take the cloth from him, as I suppose; they immediately ran when they saw me coming after them; I pursued the prisoner, the others took a different direction, and I stopped him at Little Moorfields. I gave him in charge to the constable.</p>
<p>Q. What became of the cloth. - A. He threw it down immediately he saw me coming after him.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure the prisoner is the person who took the cloth out of the window. - A. I am certain, I can take my oath of it, I never lost sight of him.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Alley.</p>
<p>A. You had never seen the prisoner before the night the robbery was committed. - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. There was a great many people about the place. - A. There was no more persons than I have mentioned.</p>
<p>Q. Was it dark or light. - A. Just about dusk. I was not above ten yards from him, I never lost sight
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180612030022"/> of him at all.</p>
<p>Q. You are taller than he. - A. Yes, I could see over his head.</p>

<p>Q. Do you mean to swear that you never lost sight of him. - A. I have sworn it.</p>

<p>Q. Did you pursue him as well. - A. Yes, he was taken.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure it is the same man. - A. Yes, I am sure it is the same man that drawed the cloth out of the window and dropped it.</p>

I immediately picked it up and carried it to the shop, I kept it in my possession till the constable returned with the prisoner and the other witnesses; then I gave the cloth to the constable.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Alley.</p>
<p>Q. Do you carry on the business for yourself or have you any partners. - A. For myself. I have no partners.</p>
<p>Court. How was it gone out of your shop. - A. From the window; the pane of glass was cut out as clean as a glazier could do it; there was a larger piece of cloth lying there, which they could not pull through, they had pushed that down, and this smaller piece they had pulled through.</p>
<p>The prisoner left his defence to his counsel, and called no witnesses to character.</p>

<p>Q. Tell us the nature of your business - A. The men put the bread on the counter, whoever is behind the counter; me, my daughter, or my wife, we count the bread and write it down on the slate, exactly as we give them; the slate is cleaned every morning, and every morning a fresh account, there is a grove cut in the slate for each journeyman with their names to it. Then he takes them out and delivers them to the customers; after he has counted them over and put them in the basket, and he says all his right.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know of any bread being put down for Mr. Barret on that day. - A. There was no bread put down to Mr. Barret on that day.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know whether there was any bread delivered by the prisoner to Mr. Barret, on that day. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Have you got your books here. - A. Yes, my daughter keeps the books.</p>
<p>Court. Q. You only enter upon your slate the number of each accompt of loaves that are delivered to your journeymen, the whole quantity delivered to each man, then he is to account for each loaf; when he comes back the loaves are called over, and put down in the bread book, and the slate, and the books are examined and called over to see if they tally. - A. Yes, which we did on that day.</p>
<p>MISS BATH. Examined by Mr. Knapp. Q. Is that the book which you keep, and is that your hand writing - A. This is the book for the cash.</p>
<p>Q. You take all accounts from the prisoner, does there appear upon that book any entry of a loaf sold to Mr. Barret on the 27th of October. - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. Would it have been the duty of the prisoner to have given you that account on the 27th of October; and should you have wrote it, if it had been so. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Gurney.</p>
<p>Q. Did you receive all the account from the prisoner of all the bread that was taken out on the 27th of October. - A. Yes, all that was on the slate, it is my general practice.</p>
<p>Q. Dismiss from your mind what your general practice is, and refer to what you did on the 27th. In the first place let me look at that hand writing, on that day; at what time did you receive the account from the prisoner. - A. I did not receive the account from him on the Monday, he had gone out and got tipsy; on Tuesday morning he gave it me.</p>
<p>Q. The prisoner has the misfortune, I believe, not to be able to read nor write. - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. And the account that he gave you therefore of course must be from his own memory. - A. Yes; I am very particular in taking them.</p>
<p>Q. He being tipsy on the Monday, he gave you the account on the morning after the delivery; in the book it appears that he has received payment for about ten or eleven loaves; there appears to be about thirty-one; delivered when he gives you the account, you call over the names, he says I gave three to one person, two to another, and one to such a one, and so all down the list as the names are called over; he tells you the number of loaves to each person, and then he states from what person he received money. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Mr. Knapp. He gave you the account on Tuesday when he was sober. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Was he a very correct man. - A. Yes, or else we should have suspected him before.</p>
<p>Q. Do you recollect, independent of the cash book, whether on the 27th he ever said to you of having delivered a loaf to Mr. Barret. - A. I know he never did.</p>
<p>Court On Tuesday his account of the loaves delivered on the Monday appeared correct, what he had accounted of, having disposed of to different customers. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. To those who had paid him, and to those who had them on account. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. And this account agreed with the slate. - A. Yes, exactly.</p>
<p>Q. Did you call over the name of Barret. - A. Yes, he answered, none.</p>

<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Gurney.</p>
<p>Q. From the time that you have known the prisoner, what is your opinion of him. - A. He never tried to play any tricks with me at all; I had a very high opinion of him.</p>
