On the 23d of March, about four o'clock in the afternoon, the prisoner with two others came into to my house, apparently as if they had just met on the spot, they called for a glass of liquor a piece; the prisoner presented me a one pound Billericay note to pay for three glasses of liquor that came to about nine-pence. This is the note, I marked it at the back; it is a one pound Billericay note. I told him I could not give him change of a one pound note; then one of them said, you may as well have your liquor here as any where else; they had a bottle of brandy and a pint of gin; I told them I had about ten shillings of change; Carpenter presented me the same one pound note; I said, I do no not like the note; I objected to it because it was a country note; Carpenter then said, you must give me change for a five pound note; I saw it was a Southampton note; I had suspicion it was a forged note; I thought I had better give change for the one pound note.</p>
<p>COURT. Did not you think it would be better not to
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181007180005"/>give change for either of them if it was a forgery - A. Yes, but I saw the place in town, I thought the one pound note might be a good one, he said, they were all as good as the Bank, he took them all in Smithfield that morning; he had a pocket-book full. He said he had a friend in the lock-up-house. I was not to take for the bottle he would return it.</p>
<p>Mr. Knapp. Did you give him change for the note - A. Yes, I gave Carpenter the change, somewhere about ten shillings. When they went away, Carpenter said, if any body should enquire for Harding, to say they should he here and spend the evening; then they went away; they did not come in the evening; and then I suspected it was a bad note; this was on Friday. On Monday morning I presented the note to No. 31, Addle-street where it specified on the note to be payable; the landlord of the house informed me, there had been a party there that came to swindle people.</p>

<p>Q. Do you know what business they were carrying on there - A. I understood they had to do with the Billericay bank; they left my house towards the latter end of February 1809; they came in the morning with a cart and horse to remove the desks and the fitting up of the accompting-house; I prevented that and stopped the desk. I saw Mr. Butler afterwards; he sent his broker to value the articles; and I gave him the difference.</p>

The prisoner tapped the other woman on the shoulder, and said, I had better go and tell your husband that we are waiting for change.

I had seen it between three and four in the afternoon; it stood in the window near against the prisoner and the other woman's back were they were standing. I went out of my shop; I saw the prisoner about ten yards from the door; I laid hold of her; the other woman was before, and immediately upon my laying hold of the prisoner I saw her drop the piece of stocking from under her apron; I saw it fall and unroll as she walked along; I picked it up and brought it in, together with the prisoner. It was my stocking piece, it is about six yards and a half, it had my mark upon it, and worth about thirty-seven shillings.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. He never saw me drop it. I never had it.

On the 11th of June the prisoner came into my shop, I was in the furthermost room, I saw the prisoner and two ladies in the shop, they were all in the shop before I saw them, I went up to the ladies, I served them with gloves.</p>
<p>Q. Were these two ladies in the shop a part of her company - A. Oh, no, they had a servant at the door. When the ladies went out of the shop, the prisoner asked me the price of some lace in the window.</p>
<p>Q. What lace was there in the window - A. A white laced veil, with a border round the bottom, and there were several veils hanging up in the window, but she pointed to that; I told the prisoner to go out of the shop, I was certain she did not want to buy any lace, according to the appearance of her, she immediately went away.</p>
<p>Q. How near was she to the lace when you first observed her - A. I suppose about two or three yards from the window.</p>
<p>Q. Was all the lace in the window - A. No, I had a box of lace on the counter, it was from there I lost the property; the moment she was gone, a carriage drove up to the door, two ladies came out and wanted some lace, I immediately went to the lace box which was upon the other counter, I took the lace box and found all the laced veils and handkerchiefs in the box were gone.</p>
<p>Q. Were was this lace box placed - A. At the bottom of the shop, on the counter, near the parlour door.</p>
<p>Q. Had you at any time seen the prisoner near that lace box - A. No</p>
<p>Q. Must she come past it to come into the shop - A. No, she must have gone the whole length of the shop to have gone up to it.</p>
<p>Q. Could you judge from any circumstance how long she had been in the shop - A. She might have been in the shop about five minutes without my observing her.</p>
<p>Q. Who was in the shop before you went in - A. Nobody, nor any body in the lower part of the house, I was in by myself.</p>
<p>Q. Was any body else in the parlour that might have observed her - A. No, nobody but myself.</p>
<p>Q. Had you left the shop door open - A. Always; winter and summer.</p>
<p>Q. Can you enumerate the particulars of what was gone from the lace box - A. A number of veils and laced handkerchiefs, and a pair of sleeves.</p>
<p>Q. Can you mention them in particular - A. Yes, about a dozen black laced veils.</p>
<p>Q. How many laced handkerchiefs - A. There might be eight or nine to a dozen, and white laced veils as well as black, a dozen of white and a dozen of black, I dare say, and a pair of laced sleeves. It was on Whit-monday they were missed.</p>
<p>Q. How soon did you see any of this property that was missing - A. Not till the Friday following. After I had missed them that afternoon, I went to Marlborough-street
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181007180007"/>office and gave information; on the Friday following, two officers and a pawnbroker brought some of them to my house.</p>
<p>Q. Did you know them when you saw them again - A. Yes, they shewed me a long veil which I was robbed of, I can speak to it in particular. I went with the officer to where the prisoner was at a public house in Marlborough-street; she then told us there were some of the other laced things at her lodgings, where we went immediately to.</p>
<p>Q. Was any found upon her - A. Yes, upon her head. She told me that she had seen me in the shop, and she had robbed me just before the two ladies came in the shop.</p>
<p>Q. Did you make her any promise or any threats - A. No, she fell a crying, and told us where some of the things were; she said she had sold some at Wandsworth; we went the next morning, on Saturday, and took her to Wandsworth, the officer and myself; she went out of the coach and walked to the shop where she had sold them, we found three veils there which we brought away with us; she likewise told us that she sold one in Cold Bath-fields, and some she sold to a young girl that was gone in the country, which was the reason she wanted to know the price of the lace, on account of her selling them to this young girl. We got the veil that she had sold at Cold Bath-fields, from a house just by the prison; she went with us and took us to the place.</p>

I went into the cellar accompanied by him, I saw the paper parcel tied up, Clark had opened some part of it, I saw eight ounces of twist and a pound of silk, I knew it was my property; this was between nine and ten in the morning; we left the silk there till we saw the house clear, and then Matthews and me fetched it up stairs and examined it. After we were fully convinced it was our own property, I tied it up and left it in the same place; I knew it to be our's, I am quite sure of it. After we had replaced it we waited to see if any of the servants moved it. Clark went down into the
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181007180009"/>cellar about three o'clock in the afternoon, and I went down and saw the parcel was missing. In the course of that time Cripps had been out with the cart, when he went out the parcel was in the cellar, and when he returned at two o'clock the parcel was in the cellar; and about three o'clock we missed it. The prisoner was gone out with the cart, when we took it up stairs and examined it.</p>
<p>Q. Had the prisoner access to this cellar - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. You found the parcel was gone at three o'clock, what steps did you take to find who had taken it - A. My partner wanted the horse in the afternoon, and the prisoner had to go to the west end of the town with some goods; we asked him for the key of the stable, he was the person that kept the key, he left the key behind him and soon after he went out with other goods. The stable is in Grub-street; Matthews and Clark went there and brought back the same silk and twist that I had seen in the cellar in the morning; Matthews tied some knots in the silk and put some pins with the heads off in the twist. I am sure it is the same silk that I had seen in the cellar. The prisoner returned about eight o'clock in the evening, he put by his knot, then I desired him to walk into the accompting-house. I shewed him the parcel, and asked him if he had seen it in the course of the day in the cellar or the stable; he said, he had not; I was provided with a constable, I desired the constable to take charge of him.</p>
<p>Mr. Alley. Q. Did you promise him any favour - A. I threatened him then, if he did not tell the truth, I certainly would prosecute him as far as the law would let me.</p>
<p>Q. Has not the other partner a share in the house - A. The rent and taxes are paid out of the trade.</p>
<p>Q. Have you any other place in which your family reside - A. My family chiefly reside at Camberwell. I always had a good opinion of Cripps before this time, he lived with me about a twelvemonth; I know nothing of Barnaby.</p>
<p>- CLARK. I am warehouseman to Mr. Scarratt. On the 22nd of June, between eight and nine o'clock in the morning, I went into the cellar to draw beer, I observed a paper parcel lying under the stairs, curiosity led me to take it up, I examined it, I found it contained silk and twist.</p>
<p>Q. It is of the same quality as is in your masters' warehouse - A. It is. I informed the other warehouseman, my master was not up; after breakfast I saw Mr. Scarratt, I informed him, he went down and saw the parcel, it was not weighed in my presence. About three o'clock I went into the cellar, it was gone.</p>
<p>Q. Who had the care of your masters' stable - A. The prisoner. I and Matthews went to the stable about six o'clock, Matthews found the same parcel of silk and twist in the stable, concealed behind a board; we took it back to Mr. Scarratt.</p>
<p>- MATTHEWS. I am a fellow servant to the last witness. I first saw the silk in the cellar, I afterwards saw it when it was taken up in the warehouse. I opened it and marked it, I could swear to the articles without any mark, it was packed up and put in the same place as before. I got the key of the stable of the prisoner. About six o'clock, in the stable, between the weather-board and the lining I found the parcel, I knew it to be my master's silk and twist. After the prisoner was taken in custody, I went with the Constable, Clark, and two others, to the Green Dragon public house, in Fore-street; Cripps had then the stolen property in his pocket, Cripps and the constable went in first; when I went in, Cripps and Barnaby were drinking together.</p>

I took charge of him, and took him to the Green Dragon public-house, in Fore-street.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see the other prisoner Barnaby there - A. I did. Cripps went in with the parcel in his hand, I stood about six yards behind him; I could not hear a word they said, Cripps gave
<persName id="t18100718-12-person151">Barnaby</persName> the parcel, and he put it behind his coat on the settle; I watched, and when I saw Barnaby put it in his pocket.

<p>Q. Do you know either of the prisoners - A. I know Piper. On the 7th of November, in the evening, he brought some handkerchiefs to sell; he said, they would suit my sailors, he had a quantity of handkerchiefs, I think I bought eight, he asked five shillings and sixpence for them; I said, I did not think they were worth the money; he said, he could pawn them for three shillings and sixpence; he took one to pledge, and returned with this duplicate - pawned by

<p>Q. Did you see any thing of the other prisoner, Davis - A. There was another man in the court where I live, it was very dark, I had every reason to believe it was Davis, but I am not sure. I am positive to the person of Piper. Here is one of the silk handkerchiefs I kept for myself.</p>
<p>Q. How soon did you hear that the prosecutor had been robbed - A. The next morning.</p>
<p>Mr. Arabin. What are you a lighterman - A. I am an officer in the impress service.</p>
<p>Q. You are a crimp are not you - A. I was at that time.</p>
<p>Q. Have you been accused wrongfully more than once, both in London and in the country - A. Not in London, in the country, but I never was tried. In June, I was going over Blackfriars-road, a carman asked me to lend him a hand with some cotton, I gave him a lift up in the cart, and they came and took me to Guildford; the thieves run away. I did not undergo a trial there was no ground for the accusation.</p>
<p>Prosecutor. I cannot swear to the handkerchief; it is exactly the same pattern, they cost me six shillings and threepence a piece.</p>
<p>Piper's Defence. I know nothing of the robbery, I never saw Mr. Lill before in my life.</p>
<p>Davis was not put on his defence.</p>

Coffee was four or five yards before me, he stopped him and took the load from him; the prisoner made no resistance; we found it to be cloth, about three quarters of a hundred weight. I asked the prisoner where he was going; he said he was carrying it to a man in Crown-court; I named the names of the men that lived in each house; he said, to Elliott. We took him to the Dolphin public house; I asked him if Mr. Pollard was up; he said, no. From his coming out of that part I supposed Mr. Pollard was his master; he did not deny it. I left the property at the Dolphin and went back to the house, and took the prisoner with me, and found the house left open; I let him go up stairs and I followed; I thought myself not safe, having no stick; I returned to the front door, I called him and he came down; when he came down his fellow servant came with him; the prisoner said, my fellow servant is innocent, I am guilty.</p>

<p>Q. Did you look at your pockets - A. Not at that moment; it was half after five when I missed the pocket. There were two pockets upon one string; the string was cut, and one of the pockets was entirely gone.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know what was in that pocket that was gone - A. There were thirty-six pounds; three ten-pound notes and four one-pound notes, in a red pocket book; the leather purse was in a canvas purse, in that canvas purse there were four crown pieces, two half crowns, and the rest in small change to the amount of two pounds two shillings in silver; and a good many things in the pocket that I cannot give an account of.</p>

<p>Q. Had you been with your husband when he received this money - A. I was not present when he took it; he had left the money in the landlord's hands at the Artichoke public house; he received it in Bartholomew-lane, at the bankers. It was prize money; my husband has been to sea a great many years.</p>

<p>Q. Did you see the prisoner again after you missed your money - A. I never saw the prisoner from the morning that I missed my money until I catched him in the Borough last Friday week; I saw him at the door of the house where he was quartered at; he was standing picking his teeth; he turned into the house and shut the door after him, he jumped over the paling of the yard and went into the next house and went under the stairs; I went into the next house with a constable, and saw him coming out from under the stairs of the next house.</p>
<p>Q. Did he come out of the stairs of himself - A. No; the constable bid him come out, and he said he would; I asked the prisoner how he could do such a trick with me; he said why did not I take it a little quieter.</p>
<p>Q. Was he searched at that time - A. He was searched when he was taken into prison; I did not see it. I had never seen him before I saw him at Uxbridge; I do not know what business he is.</p>

Yes; and through his persuasion, and telling me that soldiers and sailors suffered by putting their money in landlord's hands, I took it out; that is the way that I lost it, by taking it out of my friend's hands.</p>

<p>COURT. What do you call blanks - A. They are blank pieces of metal, apparently for sixpences, they are not coloured; they are a metal which has a colouring in it, but not compleat.</p>
<p>Mr. Reynolds. When your talk of blanks you mean unfinished pieces, do not you - A. Yes. The table having in part fallen many of the blanks fell about the feet of the prisoners, and about the bottom of the table, which I picked up, most of them, in number, I think, sixty, many of them are bent, and many of them bear the punch mark of the letter P; upon looking round the floor, close to where the prisoners were, I found upon the blanket, and upon the floor this fine sand paper, most of it having been used. On the floor also, close to the prisoners feet, this punch, bearing the letter P, a pair of pincers which Jackson picked up and gave to me, a small bag also upon the floor close to the table, having in it two counterfeit shillings. In some part of the room this pair of scissars, a paper of cream of tartar I found in one of the cupboards, which I gave to Hawkins, with, I think, nineteen pence halfpenny in copper, which I also gave to him; I then searched the pockets of the prisoner Stinson, and found
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181007180018"/>six good shillings, two good sixpences, two counterfeited sixpences, and a counterfeit shilling the shilling bearing the punch-mark of the letter P, tied up in a bit of rag, the good and the bad shilling and sixpence that I have described. On the fire side, there being a fire in the grate, I found one blank of the small size, bearing the punch-mark of the P, which was red hot. On the mantle shelf of the same room this small ball of blacking. After having secured the prisoners I went again with Craig and Hawkins, and in the same room we found this pocket, which from some liquid appears to have been burnt, bearing some green stained marks, and now very tender; this a blanket also found at the same time, with the pocket, which has in many parts of it, principally in the middle, the stained marks of green. I have the table here which I brought from the same room, it has the same marks of green.</p>
<p>Q. When you went in first did you make any observations on the hands of the prisoners - A. I did, that ther fingers were very dirty, as if they had been at work at some metal.</p>
<p>Q. It was different from ordinary persons having dirty hands - A. They were discoloured as if they had been using and rubbing of metals; I made an observation to the prisoner Stinson that it was a bad job, her answer was, that they were making button tops.</p>
<p>Q. Was there a curtain in the room - A. There was, which was down when we went into the room, it was a dirty red check curtain; when we went into the room we put it up. The back premises were so situated, I think, that it was impossible to see into the room with the curtain quite down. I have a vial, but what it contained I do not know.</p>

I tried the punches to one of the sixpences, it fitted exactly to the letter; I picked up the punch and gave it to Hamilton. I secured Stinson while they were searching the room, and while I had hold of her hands she said they were making button tops.

<p>Q. Do you know the two prisoners - A. Yes, I know them perfectly well. On the 25th of June I unfortunately went to their house, that was the first time, I went there about eleven o'clock in the morning; the first time I went there was the 3rd of June.</p>
<p>COURT. I thought you said the 25th of June - A. The first time was the 3rd of June, then I went to the front room, one pair of stairs, to a young woman that I was acquainted with, she lived in the front room; Stinson came into that room to me, and this young woman that I was with expressed her surprise of her coming into the company of a stranger. At that time the prisoner Stinson had a bag in her hand, and she was rubbing in this way. I am come here to speak the truth, and you may depend upon it I will.</p>
<p>COURT. Do not chatter so - A. Then afterwards she pulled some sixpences out of the bag.</p>
<p>Mr. Knapp. Had she done any thing before that - A. Yes; I saw her file some of the sixpences at the edges, then afterwards we had a little conversation; she asked me whether I wished to have any of them; I had three of her sixpences.</p>
<p>Q. Before she had filed the edges and put them into the bag, where did she take them from - A. I cannot tell; after she had filed them she put them into a bag and rubbed them, before she put them in the bag they appeared brassy, and afterwards, when they came out, they were quite while. I went several times afterwards to see my friend, and I saw Stinson most times, I saw them both, they were making sixpences; once I saw them cutting out the oval sixpences with scissars, she had a flat iron without a handle, she struck a punch marked with the letter P, upon the sixpences with a pair of pincers; they were such pincers as them are; then she bent both ends with a pair of pliers; that was Stinson; Jones was rubbing some of the blanks with sand paper upon the table, with a cloth upon it, that was to get the rough marks out of the blanks, then they put them in a leather bag, and rubbed them with the bag and brought them out quite white.</p>
<p>COURT. What was in the bag - A. Some kind of white dust.</p>
<p>Mr. Knapp. Do you know aquifortis - A. I saw some there at the same time, but I did not see it used.</p>
<p>Q. What is aquafortis to do to them - A. To prepare them. I know what it does to buttons; when we solder them it takes out the rough marks, and prepares them for silvering or gilding, it clears them.</p>
<p>Q. When was the last time that you were there - A. I think on the 24th of June; it was Sunday, and I had a shilling, which I took to Mr. Sewell, who is an assistant to Mr. Powell; I gave it to him, I purchased it of the prisoner, I was to give fourpence for it, I did not; I gave that shilling to Mr. Sewell; I told Mr. Powell what I had seen. The last time I went to the house Stinson told me that they should be ready in about an hour, what I went for, some shillings and sixpences, I
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181007180019"/>was to have three or four dozen, she was going to get some blanks; Stinson went out and Jones stopped at home, and when I came back Jones told me to wait, she would not be long; I stopped, Stinson came back soon after; when she came back they both set to work at the table in another room; Jones began first to rub the blanks with sand paper, the blanks were ready cut out; at that time Stinson was striking the punch on a coblers last; she then bent them with a pair of pliers, and after they were bent I left the room and went to tell Mr. Powell what I saw.</p>
<p>Q. You say you saw some aquafortis in the room, where was that - A. It was standing in the lid of a window with a feather in it. Stinson told me they were very good things, she and Jones had done three or four dozen in the morning, and they had both been out, they had got a great sale for them; as many as they could do they could part with them.</p>
<p>Q. In consequence of what you had seen did you communicate every thing to Mr. Powell - A. I did. I have told the truth and no more.</p>
<p>COURT. Did you ever learn what powder it was - A. No; it was white. Before they were put in the bag the edges looked brassy, and when they came out of the bag the edges looked white.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know what cream of tartar is - A. Yes, I know it perfectly well; this is the cream of tartar; they use cream of tartar and tin shavings to hardware buttons; I do not know what that other paper is.</p>
<p>Mr. Alley. You are a button maker - A. I am a button chaser.</p>
<p>Q. You unlucky enough got acquainted with the prisoner on the 3d of June, I think that was your expression - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. That was owing to your going to a girl that lodged in the same house - A. Yes; I got acquainted with these two by knowing the girl in the front room, she was a very slight acquaintance.</p>
<p>Q. Pray where did you carry on the trade of button chasing - A. When I am at home at Birmingham; there is very little button chasing in London.</p>
<p>Q. I suppose you were a housekeeper at Birmingham - A. My father is.</p>
<p>Q. Your grandfather may - When did you carry on the button chasing at Birmingham - A. Three years ago.</p>
<p>Q. What have you been doing in London for three years past - A. I have worked in two places and can have a good character from them.</p>
<p>Q I am sure you are a man of good character because you are doing good service to the public - when was it you came to London the last time to settle here - A. It is now twelve months.</p>
<p>Q. About ten months I suppose you worked at button making in London - A. No, I have not; I worked at Allen's and Butler's in Nevills-court, they carry on the spectacle trade; a person that comes to London must change his hand; I worked with them five months.</p>
<p>Q How have you got your livehood the last five months - A. I have got very good friends; my father is very well to do, he has sent me up money, and I have received money from my friends.</p>
<p>Q Have you ever travelled the country much - A. Very little.</p>

<p>Q. I ask you upon your oath whether you do or do not expect to get any thing for this prosecution - A. I do not.</p>
<p>Q. Are you the person that gave bail for some offence - A I am. I am on bail now for uttering a bad seven shilling piece; I was taken up about a month ago and bailed for that. If it was not for money makers I should not have been in that situation.</p>
<p>Q. You have charged the two prisoners with money making on the 25th of June - you were taken up about a month ago, that was some time before the 25th of June - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. I dare say you did not think it was a convenient thing by serving the mint in this prosecution and saving yourself - A. A man has always an opportunity to gain his character in this country.</p>
<p>Q. It is about a month ago you were taken up charged with uttering a bail seven shilling piece - this was after his Majesty offered you a free pardon - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. You have been taken up after that for uttering a bad seven shilling piece - Do not you expect to be absolved from your sin by accusing them - A. I think repentance is never too late.</p>
<p>JURY. Did you teach these women their business - A. No, never.</p>
<p>Q. Did they ask you any questions as to the process of making buttons - A. No, never; they seemed very shy of me, but this woman told them it was all right with me. I never instructed them in the art of making bad money.</p>

<p>Q You are perfectly well acquainted with the apparatus, and things necessary to be used in coming - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Take these sixpences, look at them - these are the sixpence found by Hamilton dropping from the women, and tell me what is the appearance of these sixpences - A. They appear to be finished ready for circulation; they are now a little rough, they are a little different from what they were the day when I first saw them, they were quite fresh, new coloured, I should suppose first of all they were cut out of the plate with a pair of scissars; there is another sixpence exactly of the same appearance cut out of the plate with the scissars, and that is complete for circulation, it would deceive now, at the time when I first saw it it was new coloured. These are the blanks. Here is a file which
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181007180020"/>would be useful in filing the edge, after it has been cut out of the plate in order to give it a smooth and circular form; here is a sand paper for rubbing the surface to prepare it for colouring; it is a particular sand paper that is applicable for this purpose particularly, so a great deal of it appears to have been used in the rubbing of metal: the blanks, after having been so prepared would be coloured with aquafortis and cream of tartar only.</p>
<p>Q. Would not the effect of aquafortis bring the silver there was to the surface - A Certainly; I am satisfied of that particular circumstance by taking one of the blanks which were unfinished which I coloured with aquafortis and cream of tartar only; that is the one that I coloured. The colour of silver would be produced by aquafortis, it would be then black and be put into water, and the cream of tartar would take the black off, and produce the whiteness. Here is a number of blanks, of the size of sixpences in an unfinished state.</p>
<p>Q. What would the act of shaking them in the bag do to them - A. The powder in the bag I believe to be nothing but chalk, which would be a quick way of drying them by shaking them in the bag instead of drying them with chalk. The blacking would be the last thing to take off the new appearance of silver, so as to deceive and make them appear as if they had been in circulation. I have looked at the rags, the blanket, and the table, produced by the officers, they appear very much stained in a way which would be the case if aquafortis had been used; I have no doubt that these stains came from aquafortis being used with metal. One of these papers that have been produced is cream of tartar, which has been spoken to. Here is a paper which I believe to be fine chalk. There is a tin pan, I have seen such kind of things frequently before, I have known them to be used in putting the blanks in to heat them over the fire; it makes them take the aquafortis sooner, it makes them take the colour better and easier, and the colour would be much better in the metal, and wear longer; it appears very black, as if it had been over the fire. I have compared the marks upon the blanks before, and I found the mark of the punch to correspond.</p>
<p>Q. Take these two sixpences, are they counterfeit - A. They are counterfeit. A number of people make use of punches in good money, and a number of people will not take them without it, and the bending of the edges make them appear more like an old sixpence.</p>
<p>Mr. Alley. I do not see that any aquafortis has been produced to day - A. No liquid aquafortis has been produced to day.</p>
<p>Q. Do not you think that aquafortis is necessary in making counterfeit money - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. You have heard a witness swear that he found a pen in aquafortis in the bottle, would not the aquafortis burn it up - A. Yes, it would by being constanty in the bottle.</p>
<p>Q. How many are there that you suppose to have been cut with a pair of scissars - A. I confine myself to two in particular.</p>
<p>Q. I see here are thirty or forty that appear to have been cut with a punch - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. How long have you known Morris - A. Since January.</p>
<p>Q. Upon your oath, from what you know of him, do you not believe he is as big a rogue as is unhanged - A I know nothing of his character but what come within my own observations; I certainly believe him to be a man of bad character.</p>

From information, on the 4th of July, about twenty minutes past five in the morning, I concealed myself in my neighbour's back kitchen, so that I had a view of my back premises; I saw the prisoner Robinson come into Mr. Couchman's yard and go into mine, the prisoner Salmon opened the back door and let him in. Robinson then followed Salmon into the kitchen, they were in about three minutes, and then Robinson came out with part of a sack of flour upon his back; I let him come off my premises and then I stopped him; he said it was the first time that ever he did it. I apprehended Robinson upon Mr. Couchman's premises.</p>
<p>Q. Did you examine to see what was in the sack at the time - A. I did, there is about ninety pounds odd. I had seen the sack in the bakehouse about an hour before Robinson came. I dare say it is worth two pounds and upwards. I apprehended Salmon in my parlor where he had no business to be.</p>

<p>Q. At what time on the 25th did you give Quelch his directions - A. About seven or eight o'clock in the evening.</p>
<p>Q. Do you remember M'Bride coming to you when you were giving directions to Quelch - A. I was not at home when M'Bride came. He came to my house between eight and nine o'clock I did not see him.</p>
<p>Q. How soon in the morning did you learn that any of your logwood had been stopped - A. About eleven or twelve o'clock the next day. Upon that I went to the Thames Police office, and there I found M'Bride in custody.</p>
<p>Q. Did you find a lug-boat with any logwood there - A. I did.</p>
<p>Q. Was that the same description of logwood as you had on board the Abingdon - A. It was, the Abingdon had about eighteen hundred weight of logwood. On the same day I caused Quelch to be taken up, and Brown in two or three days afterwards. From the appearance of that logwood in the lug-boat and the cargo, I belive it to be my logwood.</p>

M'Bride was rowing the boat up, and the tide was running up. I went along-side of the boat and boarded her; I found the boat to contain logwood. I took M'Bride and the logwood into my custody, and brought M'Bride to the Thames Police. The logwood and tarpaulin were shewn to Mr. Thompson the next day.

<p>Q. On the evening of Monday the 25th of June did you go to your master to receive orders - A. I did. Mr. Thompson's servant told me there was no message for me I met Quelch in Seething-lane close by the house. Quelch said, I can put a pound or two in your way if you like, because I know you are poor and got very little work. I said, I would be very willing, provided it was without any danger. He told me that he had been to a man of the name of Cuff, that lived in Thames-street, Bank-side. Cuff told him he had a punt at Stoney-stairs, and we were to put the logwood into it; his boy would take it away the next morning. He told me to go to Cuff to tell him that he sent me to him, to be sure to send the punt up to him the next morning, and if Cuff would not do it I was to go to
<persName id="t18100718-30-person327">Brown</persName> the prisoner, and tell him Quelch wanted to see him.</p>
<p>Q. Had you known Brown before - A. I had seen him before, he lived in a court in Tooley-street. I went to Cuff's house, there was nobody at home; then I went to Brown. I saw Brown that same evening. I told Brown that Quelch wanted to see him. He asked me what it was about, I told him it was some logwood. He said he wanted a job; he came with me to Sabs-passage near the Custom-house, for the purpose of consulting with Quelch at Sabs-passage. Quelch met us the same night; it was dark; I cannot say the time. We all went into a public house and had a pot of beer. Brown said, he must go
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181007180022"/>into Upper Thames-street to get a key of a friend of his to get a lug-boat. When he got me there he left me in the street, and when he came back he told me he could not get the boat he wished to have, but he could get another boat, there was nothing wanted but a tarpaulin. I told him there was a tarpaulin in the Abingdon barge, on board which Quelch was going down. We went on board the lug-boat at Trig-wharf. We went through the bridge; then Brown said he must get a wherry to go on shore. He told me to put the boat into the Custom-house lower road, and that Quelch was waiting for me at the stern vessel of that teer. I took the lug-boat there; I found Quelch there with a barge; Brown came to us in a wherry. There were some people walking on a vessel that was moored there, we did not think proper to do business there. We went to the South side of the river, Brown in a wherry, I in the lug-boat, and Quelch in the barge; we crossed the river and there it would not do; we had fastened the lug-boat to the barge, and Quelch and I were in the barge together, and Brown in the wherry; we found the coast not clear; we did not do it there; we hauled the lug-boat to the side of the barge; we drove down the tide towards Blackwall, putting the logwood into the boat.</p>
<p>Q. Did Brown come on board the barge - A. No, he never was on board the barge, I and Quelch handed the logwood from the barge into the lug-boat.</p>
<p>Q. How near did Brown keep to you - A. He was rowing about in case any thing came to alarm us.</p>
<p>Q. How much logwood did you and Quelch hand out - A. We meaned to take a ton and no more.</p>
<p>Q. And while this took place you were floating down the river - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. How far had you got when you compleated your point - A. Very near to what they call the fifth mill, near Blackwall.</p>
<p>Q. Now in your going down where you sometimes on one side and sometimes of the other - A. It is necessary to go sometimes on one side and sometimes of the other to be clear of the teers; we were sometimes of the North side while we were handing out the logwood. When we had taken a ton, Quelch took the tarpaulin out, and covered the logwood over; Quelch told me to make her fast to the first teer that I could get hold of, and stay till flood tide; I made her fast to a teer by the fifth mill, on the North side of the river.</p>
<p>Q. At the time that you parted with Quelch where was Brown - A. Brown parted with us a little time before Quelch told me to go to Cuckold's Point, and Brown would meet me there, then I was to go where I pleased.</p>
<p>Q. Had Brown parted with you before the tarpaulin was put over - A. About half an hour before.</p>
<p>Court. Did you see him while the logwood was handing out - A. Yes, he was after us, before us, and about us, he knew what we were doing; he was about us on the North side, and on the South side.</p>
<p>Mr. Gurney. When you had parted and made fast to a vessel, what became of Quelch - A. He proceeded towards Blackwall; I made fast to a vessel at the teer, and when the flood tide came I floated up the river, and between four and five o'clock, I was met with by Mr. Rye, he took me, and the lug-boat, with the logwood, altogether into custody.</p>
<p>Mr. Alley. We are to understand from you, that Quelch proposed to you, that you might get a little money by assisting him in robbing your master - A. He did.</p>
<p>Q. Then you went to carry a message to Brown in Surry - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. You say that when you crossed over from the Custom-house Brown was in his wherry, and Quelch was in the barge with the lug-boat attached to it. Now, Sir, I ask you, and is not the fact so, that Brown rowed directly across the river, and went away - Did not you at any other time say, that he went away and separated from you altogether when you left the Custom-house - A. No, I said he was sometimes before and sometimes behind.</p>
<p>Q. You were apprehended by the Thames Police officer on the Tuesday morning, at that time you were in possession of the stolen property - A. Yes, I was.</p>
<p>Q. You was apprehended on the Tuesday; when was Brown apprehended. - A. I did not see Brown till I saw him at the Police office. I believe it was on the Monday following.</p>
<p>Q. Did you give any information about Brown until you saw your master at the prison - A. I did not. I sent to my master before, but he did not come.</p>
<p>Q. Was it not for the purpose of saving yourself that you accused Brown - A. I could not stand such an untruth.</p>
<p>Mr. Andrews. You are a watchman employed occasionally by Mr. Thompson - A. Yes, my business is to take care that nothing is lost when I am employed.</p>
<p>Q. When Brown got this lug-boat then, he wanted nothing but a tarpaulin; upon which you told him there were plenty on board the Abingdon - A. Yes, I knew there were two or three in her. I was at work for Mr.
<persName id="t18100718-30-person328">Thompson</persName> that day; I knew they were marked with Mr. Thompson's name.</p>
<p>Q. And upon being taken by Mr. Rye, you turned tail upon your companions to save yourself. - A. My own conscience was one thing, I was not happy.</p>
<p>Q. You intended to take a ton, what share were you to have of it. - A. I suppose I was to have the third or fourth part of it.</p>

<p>Q. On the morning that M'Bride was taken, did you go down to Blackwall. - A. I did, I found 927 pieces of logwood in the vessel, and the Abingdon was lying along-side of her. On the evening of the 26th I apprehended Quelch in the city at Mr. Thompson's house. I told him it was necessary that he should go with me to the Thames Police office to give some account of the transaction.</p>

<p>Q. On the morning of Tuesday the 26th of last month, did either of the prisoners call at your house - A. Quelch did soon after I was up, a little after eight o'clock. He asked me if my husband was at home. I told him he was not. I asked him if he had any message to leave; he said nothing material; he went away. Soon after nine o'clock Quelch's wife came to tell me that my husband was in custody.</p>
<p>Q. On the Monday morning after were you with your husband. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. In consequence of any thing your husband said to you, did you go with the officer and Mr. Thomson to Brown's house - A. I did.</p>
<p>Q. Had you while your husband was in custody, gone to Brown's house before that - A. I had, twice, I went the
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181007180023"/>first time, as soon as I heard my husband was in custody, I went to the police office, and I think it was that same day I went to Brown, I did not see him then.</p>
<p>Q. Then you went with Mr. Thompson and the officer on the Monday; did you go first leaving them behind - A. I did. I saw Brown on the Monday, I had never seen him before; his wife told him who I was, he asked me how my husband did; I told him he was very indifferent indeed; he told me to make myself easy, on the next day he would send me a pound or two; nothing more past, I came out, and Mr. Thompson and the officer came in.</p
