On the 4th of December, in the morning, about seven o'clock, I saw my master's barn had been broken open; there was a large mark of iron in several places; the rest of the iron had been left on the door.</p>
<p>Q. Was any wheat gone - A. Yes, about five bushels, or five bushels and a half. It had been thrashed; it was lying in a range at the further end of the barn. It was not light then, but when it was light I traced a footstep, and likewise a track of chaff across Mr. Vaughan's meadow to the premiseses of

I said, before the sacks were opened, if it was Vaughan's wheat it was red wheat, mixed with white; the long chaff was gone, but the small chaff dust and seeds remained. I had no doubt of it being Mr. Vaughan's wheat.</p>
<p>Mr. Knapp. Red wheat is not peculiar to Mr. Vaughan, other people might have wheat like it - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. This red wheat was mixed with white, and there was dust with it, and seeds - A. Yes, but I have no doubt of its being Mr. Vaughan's property.</p>

On the 4th of December I went down with Mr. Vaughan to his barn door, it appeared to have been broken open by an iron instrument, by some rust being on the door. I went to Old Hayden's house, he was at home sitting by the fire; I went to search his house; I had no warrant; I asked him for the candle that was on the table, he said he would be d - d if I should have it; he said he had killed many men in his time, and he would not mind killing me.</p>
<p>Mr. Gurney. Hayden the elder has been a soldier.</p>
<p>Cook. I sent to the next door and got a candle, I then went up stairs, I found a bushel of flour; I found the wheat in the back kitchen, or washhouse, it was in sacks, and covered over with two or three trusses of straw. I asked his wife in his presence how it came there, she said she did not know, she was sure it was not there at six o'clock the night before. He said nothing to it. I told Old Haydon he must go to town with me; he said he would not go; I then went to Young Hayden's house, there I found this crow, it is an implement of husbandry, and a sack of Mr. Vaughan's.

I was walking my horse, it was about three o'clock, it was a light morning; I asked them what o'clock it was; they gave me no answer. They had a sack each. One was a short man, he had a lighter load than the tall man. I think I have seen one of them since, I think it to be young Hayden.

She and her husband came the following day.</p>
<p>Q. When did you see the prisoner Williams - A. On the following day. The prisoner Williams lived there all the time to my knowledge.</p>
<p>Q. How soon did you observe any thing - A. Some weeks elapsed before I made any observation. From the difference of the hammering I knew it was not our business; I had a suspicion, I took the opportunity to make myself certain that it was what I expected; I made a crevise in the partition, so that I could see well into the room. I saw him rubbing as it were with his thumbs shillings or sixpences.</p>
<p>COURT. Some pieces - A. Yes; and I saw him use also a brush. The three prisoners were all there to my knowledge then. I saw Mrs. Deacon standing between her husband and the fire place, handing different articles from the fire to him.</p>
<p>Mr. Knapp. What articles - A. They seemed to be something out of a tin pot that was going backwards and forwards I cannot describe them, but they were something. This was about a fortnight before they were taken; I gave information at the office. At one time I saw Deacon give some silver to Williams; she wrapped it up in paper, and put it in her pocket.

In consequence of a warrant granted by Mr. Read, I went with Clark, Donaldson, and Vickrey, to the prisoners lodgings, No. 4, Change-court, Drury-lane, on Wednesday, January the 16th, between twelve and one in the day. When I got there Vickrey shoved open the door; I went in and seized Williams. Deacon and his wife were on each side of the fire; Williams was sitting under the window; I laid hold of Williams by the pocket, and held her till some conversation took place between Deacon and Vickrey. I found in her pocket two sixpences and a piece of blacking. I then searched Mrs. Deacon, I found two good shillings and a piece of blacking; I found no counterfeit money upon her. Then I proceeded to search the room; behind a box in the room I found a paper of whitening, and several pieces of leather, they appeared to be damp; they are dirty, and appeared to have been used in polishing something with whiteness. I found this brush behind the same box. The bed was on the ground. Under the head of the bed I found an old pair of women's pockets, they seemed to be stained with aquafortis. On a board in the room I found a rag, stone, and a pair of scissars. In a rack under the window I found a brush sticking up, and another pair of scissars; there was some leather nailed against the wall; the scissars and brush were put in. Under a board under the window I found a piece of leather stained very much with aquafortis, and two fingerstalls, which were quite wet, in a pocket that was quite wet, it is not dry now, stained in the same manner as the leather. I found a small mixture in this paper which I cannot describe. I took the prisoners into custody.</p>
<p>Mr. Alley. You met with no resistance, though you forced the door open - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. You found none of the parties doing wrong, and you found upon Williams two sixpences; they are not fit for circulation - A. They were fit for circulation at the time I found them; I should have taken them if I had gone for change.</p>
<p>JOHN CLARK. Q. You are an officer of Bow-street - A. I was at the time; I was with Vickrey and Lack; I searched the two Deacons; I found upon the man Deacon fourteen shillings, nine sixpences, and three half crowns, in his waistcoat pockets, all bad. I searched the mantle piece, I found six bad sixpences; I searched his breeches pockets, I found a bad sixpence, and a blank of the size of a shilling. I searched further, I found a bad dollar, and two blanks, one the size of a shilling, and the other a sixpence. I found some cuttings of silver in a paper, and some blacking in a tin cannister, and a little whitening.</p>

<p>Q. You have been in the habit of apprehending persons in the same case of the prisoners before - A. Many; I was in company with Donaldson and the others; I was the first in the room, they followed me; Deacon (the man) was sitting on the right hand of the fire-place, the woman on the left, and Williams was sitting nearer the window, she was working at her needle, I told them we had a warrant to search that
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181102200005"/>room for counterfeit money, they made no reply, nor offered any resistance. Deacon offered to get off his seat, I desired him to sit still. I saw the officers find the things, they shewed them to me on the table. The two sixpences and the blacking was the first thing that was shewed me. Blacking is a thing that is used after the money is coloured. They rub the piece with blacking when it is coloured and bright, it takes off the polish and brightness.</p>
<p>Q. Is it common blacking. - A. It is a mixture of wax, tallow, and lamp black. It is not a sort of blacking that we should use for our shoes. I saw the whole that Lack found. I directed him to take care of them. Aquafortis with other things found in the house, would produce the colour of silver undoubtedly. After the silver is embibed in the mettle, aquafortis would bring it on the surface. Cream of tarter is an ingredient that is used for the purpose of putting a silver on the metal. I never knew whitening to be used. Scouring paper I have always found in these houses. The finger stalls, I have seen them, I have no doubt they were used for the purpose of colouring money. I do believe the cloths have been used for the purpose of wiping the money after having aquafortis on it. A bird cage was handed to me by Donaldson; in that bird cage, I found this aquafortis bottle. This is a bag of blanks.</p>
<p>Q. How many blanks are there. - A. There is above an hundred. Here are shillings, sixpences, half crowns, and a dollar or two. After I had been searching some time, Mrs. Deacon got from her seat, and under her chair where she sat, I found a counterfeit sixpence, it then appeared to have directly come from the hand of the finisher. In the same bag with the blanks, I found some pieces of silver, I have no doubt they were intended for making colour to put on the blanks. Here are some counterfeit half guineas, I found nothing to colour them. Here are four sixpences in the same place, that had been scoured ready for the process of colouring, they are complete to be coloured now, there was some cream of tartar in the same cage, and some sand paper. Some of these have been used for the purpose of rubbing metal, and this has not been used. These cloths were found in an old tea chest, they were then wet. I have no doubt but they had been washed out, there was a sufficient smell of aquafortis on them.</p>
<p>Q. Look at that found by Clerk in the man Deacon's pocket, is that a counterfeit. - A. It is, it has been coloured. These are the two sixpences found in Williams's pocket, these are very much changed coloured now, to what they were when found; and when produced to the magistrate, they were handed to me, they were then fit for circulation.</p>
<p>Q. Was there any appearance of any shoemaking in the apartment. - A. There was part of a shoemaker's kit, it did not appear that there was any carried on at that time. There were a great many old shoes about, but none appearing in a state of mending at that time.</p>

<p>Q. Do you know Withers. - A. Yes, I have known him eight or ten years or more. On the day before Christmas day, he called at my house in Circuit Street, New Road, Paddington, he asked me whether I was at work, I told him it was such a wet morning I could not go to work, he said he wanted to speak to me about a little job, he was going to a public-house the corner of the street, would I have any beer. We went together to the public-house, there he said if I would come in the morning to the Brazen Head, he would meet me there about nine or ten o'clock. I went there at ten o'clock at night, he was not there, I had two pints of beer and a pipe of tobacco. I staid there till past eleven, came out, and went past his house, I saw a light, I went in, he was sitting by the fire, he said</p>
<p>"Quelch, you are almost drunk," I said,</p>
<p>"I am not much better," he asked me to sit down, I did, and fell asleep.</p>
<p>Q. How far is his house from the Brazen Head. -
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181102200006"/>A. About two hundred yards. I sat there I do not know how long. He awoke me; then we went up the hill to the Brazen Head up Bell Street, he turned down Frost's Gardens, there is a chapel behind that, there he brought a ladder. As we made up the hill, we met a person, Withers told me it was Thorpe, Withers, said to Thorpe,</p>
<p>"holloa master, do not run over me," that was just before we got the ladder. I said,</p>
<p>"if that is Thorp, it is not his way home," he said</p>
<p>"he has come this way because the water is up." I knew Thorp very well, but I did not know him then. Thorp lives down Bates's Row, he could not go along the gravel pits, the water was flooded there after a fall of rain. Withers and I went behind the chapels, and he brought a ladder out.</p>
<p>Court. Then you did not go with him. - A. I stopped in Frost's passage, he went round the chapel and got the ladder. When we had got the ladder, we went down Bell Street the way we came up, we made a stop in Bell Street, there was a man and his wife next door to the Brazen Head quarrelling, a woman of the opposite side of the way came out with a light. After they were all gone, and all was quiet; we came up to the Brazen Head, he pointed up to the window, and said he was going to take these watches out, he laid the ladder down under a window on the opposite side of the way, we stopped there. Holmes and his wife were making a noise, when they were quiet, three men came down Bell Street, they knocked at the Brazen Head door, the door was not opened to them, they were in liquor; and stopped twenty minutes. After they were gone, Withers then took the ladder, and put it up against the window, he went up the ladder, and raised up the window at the bottom with a small pick axe, he took the watches out, which hung on a frame, he took the frame and all, and handed it down to me One of the watches fell of the frame on the ground, I took it up and put it in my pocket, that is the watch that I offered to pawn at Mr. Dobree's. Withers came off the ladder, we left it just as it was, under the window, and away we went. At Lisson Green he took the watches off the frame, and put them into his hat, I asked him what he meaned to do with them, he said, to take them to Freeland, I knew him, he is a broker, at the bottom of Quebeck Street, in York Street, I said,</p>
<p>"suppose Freeland will not take them," he said,</p>
<p>"he will take any thing, if he will not take them, you must take them to your house," I told him I would not have them in my house for any consideration, he said, he knew if he took them home. they would search his house immediately, I must take them to my house, nobody would have any suspicion of me. We both went to Freeland's house as the watch went four o'clock. We went to Freeland's back door, he went round before me; when I went round he was got in just as I got to the window, there was a light, I saw Withers and Freeland in the room, I saw where they put the watches, down on the table, Freeland was standing at the table, I went from the window, Withers came to me, he said, it was all right, I did not go into the house, Withers said, he had got a one pound note, and Freeland would settle the remainder another day, I went home then. I met him the next morning in Circuit Street, he gave me five shillings worth of half-pence, said, he should get the remainder of it the next day. On the evening of the next day, I saw him at the Royal Oak, Circuit Street. We went into Paddington Street. there he gave me four pounds four shillings more, he told me he got it off Freeland, that was my share. On the 5th of January, I pawned the watch I had at Dobree's, I was stopped, and I told this story directly, I have been in custody ever since.</p>
<p>Mr. Knapp. So you kept all this snug until you thought you should be prosecuted, and then you told it. You do not understand this, you are a lucky fellow. - A. I think I am very unlucky.</p>
<p>Q. Four pound nine shillings you received, you are lucky that you are not punished. - A. I do not know but I may be punished, I deserve to be punished.</p>
<p>Q. When was it you told this story first. - A. That very night, at Marlborough Street office, I told the officer of it.</p>
<p>Q. Have you ever been in custody before, honesty. - A. Never before for any misdemeanor for thieving.</p>
<p>Q. Have you never been taken up by any constable before. - A. Yes, I was before the justice at Marlborough Street, a man charged me with thieving his tools.</p>
<p>Q. How many times have you been at Marlborough Street. - A. Never before, or at any other office.</p>
<p>Q. Where were you charged about a wheelbarrow. - A. At Marlborough Street office, I bought some potatoes of a man, he lent me a barrow.</p>
<p>Q. Did not he charge you with stealing the barrow. - A. He did, that was nine or ten years ago, it slipped my memory.</p>
<p>THOMAS SMEED. Q. You are the landlord of the Brazen Head public house, are you not. - A. Yes, Mr. Seabrook informed me of the robbery in the morning.</p>
<p>Q. In the course of the night had you heard any knocking at the door. - A. Yes, I did not get up, I think it was about three o'clock.</p>
<p>JOHN THORP. Q. You live at Lisson Green. - A. I do.</p>
<p>Q. On the night of Christmas eve had you been out your benefit club. - A I had, I was going up Oxford Street as the watchmen were going two. When I came to Lisson Green, I should suppose it was near half after two, I went down Bell Street by the Brazen Head. Going down the hill about thirty yards from the Brazen Head, it was a dark night, one of the men spoke, or else I should have run against him, I cannot recollect the words. As soon as ever he spoke to me, I passed by and went on, I believe it to be Withers's voice, I have no other proof than the voice, I have known him ten or twelve years.</p>
<p>Q. And from that knowledge of him you believe it to be his voice. - A. I do, I passed on my way, and they their way.</p>

<p>Q. In consequence of any communication that he made, did you that night apprehend the prisoners at the bar. - A. I apprehended Freeland, and my brother apprehended Withers, they were both brought to the watch-house that night, they were examined on the Monday,
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181102200007"/>the 7th. Withers was detained for a further examination Freeland was discharged upon bail to appear on a future day.</p>
<p>Q. After Freeland had been discharged, did he come to you. - A. He did. On Monday, the 9th, he shewed me an anonymous letter which he said he had just received. That is the letter. - The letter read; directed, W. Freeland Broker, John Street, New Road, Paddington. To be left at the Duke of York, York Street. Post mark, January 9.</p>
<p>"SIR - I can give you information that Mr. Quelch has told me this day, that a part of the property he stole, he has planted them in a coal vault, in the carcase of an unfinished house, Lisson Green, Paddington, that he meant to part with them one at a time. I give you this information, I do not like to see innocent men hunted for as thieves for other men's guilt.</p>
<p>Q. Did you and your brother go with Freeland to Lisson Green. - A. We did, we went to a carcase of an unfinished house. We found the watches in a pickle jar, the ground had been turned up, the mussle of the pickle jar was put in the ground, the sides of the jar and top were covered with bricks. This was in January, a very hard frost. The ground where the jar was buried was soft, it appeared that it had been turned up shortly before.</p>
<p>Q.Could it have been in that state two days. - A I should think not, every other part of the vault was quite hard, and whatever water had flooded in was ice; the other bricks were frozen by the ice, these were loose I think it could not have been there many hours, if it had, it would have been frozen, the frost had been for several days, and it was a frost then. This is the watch I received at Mr. Dobree's, and here is, I think, sixteen watches and a watch case, Freeland went with me to that vault.</p>

<p>Q. to Quelch. Did you ever see the watches after they were left at Freeland's. - A. Yes, I saw them at Marlborough Street.</p>
<p>Q. Did you put them in the carcase of an unfinished house on Lisson Green. - A. No, I never did; nor did I ever tell any body of it. I had a few words with Freeland about fifteen shillings he owed me, I never wished him any ill.</p>
<p>Wither's Defence. There is some part of Quelch's evidence that I cannot deny, and there is a great part of it false. As to his coming to my house, he did, in a drunken state indeed; he came into my house, I was in bed, he set himself down and snored till about four o'clock in the morning, my wife said,</p>
<p>"Withers, get up and turn that man out, he has watered the house I believe;" and, I then got up and said</p>
<p>"go," he said he wanted me to go along with him, I said,</p>
<p>"I shall not go along with you, recollect my family, I will not do any thing that I ought not to do, my misfortunes has taught me better," I had the misfortune to stand at this bar fourteen years ago, I was capitally convicted, I received his Majesty's pardon, God restored him, from that day I never eat of ill begotten bread, I have worked hard for my living, God has blessed me with health and strength to work for my family, and from whence he must rest his infernal evidence I cannot say, except from my former misfortunes. He has said, he would do for Freeland, he was sorry for me, but he could not do any thing with Freeland without me.</p>
<p>Freeland left his defence to his counsel.</p>
<p>SIMON. I am independant, I live in Mitcham Street, Paddington.</p>
<p>Q. Look at that letter. - A. These are the initials of my name that I put to it. Freeland brought it into a public-house, I was setting reading the paper, he read this letter by my side, he seemed much agitated.</p>
<p>Mr. Gurney. He asked you to put your name upon it. - A. Yes, that I should know it again</p>
<p>Q. You were not present when it was put in the post-office were you. - A. No.</p>
<p>- RICHEY. I am a taylor, 17, Newnham Street, Edgeware Road. About the beginning of November, I heard Quelch say he would be a match for Freeland.</p>
<p>MR. PIERCE. I am a bricklayer, York Street, New Road. I have heard Quelch say two or three times, he would do for Freeland in a very short time.</p>
<p>Freeland called six witnesses who gave him a good character.</p>

On the night of the 13th of February, about a quarter before 12 o'clock at night, I went to bed, I was the last person up, the house was fast as usual, the doors and windows, I fastened them myself. About half past three o'clock in the morning, I was alarmed by the corporal and serjeant on guard I got up, there is a guard at the Canteen to protect my property. When I looked out of the window, they told me to come down. When I came down, they asked me if I had lost any thing out of my bar, I told them I could not tell, if they would lend me a light, I would examine it. I examined my bar, I found the bar-door open, it is a half hatch door, I had bolted it inside, I found it unbolted and left open. In one of the drawers that we always put copper in, I found five pound fifteen shillings had been taken away out of six pound fifteen shillings. We found ten shillings in the drawer, five shillings on the dresser, and five shillings on the floor, all the halfpence I had tied up in five shillings in paper the evening before. The serjeant of the guards told me, that he had got two pounds fifteen shillings, and the prisoner was in the custody of the corporal and the serjeant in the guardroom.</p>
<p>Q. How far is the guard-room from your house. - A, About thirty-five or thirty-six yards. I went to the guard-room, I saw some of my halfpence in his foraging cap on the guard-room table. The prisoner was in custody in the guard-room. The whole the we found of my property was two pounds fifteen shillings, they were part loose, and part tied up. They
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181102200008"/>were all tied up when taken away, I knew them in particular by the tie, and they are folded particularly, they are not tied up as others are. I lost about two quarts of rum, and some return tobacco.</p>
<p>Q. Did you examine your house afterwards. - A. I did, the person that got in, got in by the tap-room window, we could see the footsteps by the sawdust on the window-bench and on the window-ledge.</p>
<p>Q. Do you, of your own knowledge, know that that tap-room window was fast when you went to bed. - A. Yes, I fastened it the last thing myself before I went to bed. There were three parts of a pint pot of gin and peppermint that was not there when I went to bed.</p>
<p>Mr. Knapp. Is any person concerned with you in keeping the Canteen. - A. No person whatever.</p>

<p>JAMES WATSON. I am a drum-major. On the morning of the 14th of February, I heard a noise on the landing of the room where I sleep. I sleep in the barracks, it is about sixty yards from the Canteens, I got up, and heard some one run down the stairs of the landing, into the barrack yard.

<p>Q. Were the stairs from which he came near the Canteen. - A. No, I heard the drum-major talking from his window, I asked him what was the matter, he said he did not know, I soon after seized the prisoner about two minutes after I heard the noise.

I caught this man on the other side of Hampstead, with his load of hay, I passed him, I thought I saw a sack of corn on the load of hay, covered over with a cloth. I then came down to the middle of Hampstead town, enquired for a constable, and soon procured him. We came up to Burgers, I saw him speak to a man of the name of Giles, I asked him where the corn was that was on the hay, he said he had none, I said I was sure he had, I had seen it on the load of hay, I asked Giles if he saw the man unload a sack of corn, he said he knew nothing about it, I went into the house and Giles followed me, I said to Giles you may as well tell me where this corn is, I am determined to find it, he denied having it, I went into the yard, I could not find it, I saw a door which led to the cellar, I went down the cellar, there I found a sack of corn nearly full, and the sack that was not full was shot into a tub. I said to Giles,</p>
<p>"this is my corn, I could swear to it almost," Giles said,</p>
<p>"I am very sorry, I bought it of this man, and gave him a pound note for it," I said,</p>
<p>"why did not you tell me of this at first, I shall be obliged to send for another constable for you." I sent for another constable, and gave Giles in charge. I got in the load of hay, and found an empty sack, then the constables and myself set off with these men to a magistrate at Edgware, where the prisoner said, he was very sorry. I can swear to the sack so far, they are sacks that belong to the man that I hired to bring this corn for me.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. The man came to me at my stable, and desired me to take two sacks of corn, I was to sell them for what I could get, I did not steal the corn.</p>

In consequence of a pair of shoes being stopped at a pawnbrokers she had sold these shoes to a woman of the name of Greenfield; she then said that a young man whom she had never seen before had given her these shoes to sleep with her. On the 24th I had further information, I searched her apartment; I saw her hand in her pocket, she was endeavouring to give something to Greenfield. I took possession of that pocket which contained a little red pocket book; in that pocket book I found two duplicates for two pair of shoes, pawned on the 3d of January.</p>

On the 5th of February I lost some bacon, the bacon was put on some tubs at the further end of the shop; the bacon was sixty pound weight. On the 5th of February, at eleven at night, I saw the bacon there; I fastened the shop door, and saw every thing was secure; nobody could go into the shop without breaking the pannel, which was done. I have a private entrance in the passage for the lodgers, they have no business with the shop. On the 6th, about the middle of the day, I missed the bacon, and about six in the evening the pannel in the passage, at the further end of the shop, I observed had been broken open.</p>
<p>Q. What time did you go into the shop in the morning - A. About seven o'clock. I was the first person that went into the shop, I did not perceive the pannel broken then, not till the candles were lighted; the boy went out in the yard in the evening, he told me that the pannel in the passage had been broken; I took the candle and examined it, and found the bacon had gone through that pannel; the marks of the bacon was upon it. The pannel had been broken open by an axe; the axe is here, the pannel had been split and then pushed in its place again, and my knocking about the tubs in the course of the day, had moved it out of its place. It had been put in its place, and that prevented me from seeing it.</p>
<p>Q. How do you know that it had been broken open by that instrument - A. Mr. Baxter matched this instrument with the place, it matched with it. The patrol found the axe in the bag, with the bacon in his possession in the street. I went to the watchhouse and saw it, I knew it to be my property.</p>
<p>Q. Was the prisoner in your house that night - A. I do not know that he was out; he told me the next night that he was out at his club.</p>

I asked him what the bag contained, he said, meat; Bott, the watchman, asked him what meat; he replied, bacon, he had it out of the country, and had been to the Angel, St. Giles's for it, and the reason he had been out so late was, he had stopped with a friend.

<p>Q. Had you ever seen the men before - A. Never, to my knowledge.</p>
<p>Q. Was it dark - A. It was very moonlight.</p>
<p>Q. Were the men disguised - A. They were; they were in light smock frocks.</p>
<p>Q. Had they any thing over their faces - A. I perceived one had something under his hat.</p>
<p>Q. Had they crape over their faces - A. No, they had not. They were on foot.</p>
<p>Q. Had you an opportunity of observing their faces - A. I had, of one more particularly than the other.</p>
<p>Q. What passed when they came up to you - A. A something was uttered, but what I do not know. They took from me a silver hunting watch; they stopped me as I was passing on the road; they were going the same way that I was; they separated, and as I came up they both took hold of the bridle of the poney.</p>
<p>Q. Do you remember what they said - A. No, I cannot positively say what they said.</p>
<p>Q. Did they demand your property - A. They said a something, and immediately a pistol was presented to me by the prisoner Pickmore, if he be the man, but I am not positive.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure of the other - A. I am positive that Oldham is the other.</p>
<p>Q. One of them presented a pistol - A. They did.</p>
<p>Q. And demanded your money - A. They uttered something, I do not know what. I immediately begged that they would not ill use me, and told them that they should have every thing that I had; I put my hand into my pocket, and gave them three one pound notes, and some silver; I cannot positively say how much silver it was, from ten to fifteen shillings. I will not say what, but some silver I am positive; I believe there were some shillings, a half crown, and a crown piece, but I am not positive whether there was a dollar or not.</p>
<p>Q. Did you give them any thing else - A. There was a bill that I had taken up at Masterman's, White Hart Court. I gave them nothing else. The prisoner Oldham drew my watch from my fob.</p>
<p>Q. Was the chair out or not - A. The chain was out, and the seal and key.</p>
<p>Q. Did they take any thing else from you - A. No, excepting a pocket handkerchief, but I am not positive, probably I might have lost it that afternoon; whether it was taken by the prisoners I cannot say; I have not seen it again since.</p>
<p>Q. When they had taken that did they leave you - A. They did.</p>
<p>Q. They did not use you ill - A. No, they did not.</p>
<p>Q. How long were they with you in the whole - A. I cannot positively say, but a very short time; I think not scarce a minute; a very short time indeed.</p>
<p>Q. Were you frightened - A. A little alarmed, not so much as I was afterwards.</p>
<p>Q. How soon afterwards did you see them again - A. I saw them at Bow-street office on the Saturday following, as they stopped me on the Monday.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know of your own knowledge whether any of your property was found upon them - A. None I believe whatever.</p>
<p>Q. When you saw them on the Saturday at Bow-street did you know either of them - A. Yes, I knew the prisoner Oldham the moment I saw him.</p>
<p>Mr. Reynolds. I think you tell us it was about seven o'clock - A. No, about six.</p>
<p>Q. Two men were going the same way as you - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Their faces then were not towards you, you had therefore no opportunity, though it was moon-light, of observing their features untill you came up - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. When you came up to them they separated, and each seized both sides of your bridle - A. They did.</p>
<p>Q. Which very much surprised you - A. Not so much at first. It did surprise me. I at first thought it was some of my friends.</p>
<p>Q. They had their hats on - A. They had.</p>
<p>Q. You sitting upon your horse, I take it you were above them - A. Very little.</p>
<p>Q. The sight that you had of their faces must be a downward sight - A. No, I had a straight forward view, they were close when my watch was drawn.</p>
<p>Q. It was scarcely a minute - A. I cannot say what time.</p>
<p>Q. You were somewhat alarmed, though not much - A. Somewhat.</p>
<p>Q. One of the men had something under his hat - which was that - A. The prisoner Oldham.</p>
<p>Q. Whatever that was contributed to shade the face - A. Very little.</p>
<p>Q. Now, sir, having asked you these questions, I put this to you, can you venture to swear positively to any man that you had never seen before in your
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181102200015"/>life can you swear positively to this man - A. I have sworn positively, my conscience will not allow me to say otherwise.</p>
<p>Q.When you went to Bow-street I believe you went there for the purpose of seeing some persons that were apprehended for robbing, were you not - A. It was.</p>
<p>Q. You went there expecting to see them - A.I went there with an idea of seeing some prisoners.</p>
<p>Q. That had robbed you - A. I could not tell.</p>
<p>Q. That was the object that you went for - A It was.</p>
<p>Q. You said it was quite moon-light, were there no clouds intervening at all - A There were some clouds I believe. I can venture to swear that I could see a man one hundred and fifty yards before me at least.</p>
<p>Q. What day of the week was this - A. Monday January the 7th.</p>
<p>Q. A fortnight afterwards you saw them - A. No, on Saturday.</p>
<p>COURT. When you saw them do you remember whether the moon was shining in their faces - A. It was; the moon was behind me; it shone into their faces.</p>
<p>JOHN UPTON. I am one of the Bow-street patrols. I was in company with Cross, Avery, and Lloyd, on Tuesday the 8th of January, passing by the Shepherd and Shepherdess public-house, going to the Shepherd and Shepherdess Fields, I met the prisoners Oldham and Pickmore coming before me. I saw Oldham pull his hat over his eyes. I seized Oldham, I asked him whether he had any pistols about him, he replied he had not; Cross said that Pickmore had thrown it over the sence.</p>
<p>Q. How far from Old Ford were they - A. This was near the City road, it might be two miles from Old Ford, I cannot exactly speak to that distance, Cross told Avery to go over, he did not find it then. We took the prisoner to the Shepherd and Shepherdess public-house, they got a light and went to look for the pistol; after they came back I saw the pistol in Cross's hands; I searched Oldham, I found a silver watch on him, a dollar, a few halfpence, and a box like a tobacco box, containing some gunpowder, and four pieces of lead, a flannel night cap, and an old silk handkerchief; I asked Oldham where he spent his afternoon, he informed me that he had been at the Angel, smoking his pipe along with Pickmore; I took them up to the Angel, I asked the waiter, I found they had. We took them to the public-office, where they were examined, and committed for further hearing.</p>

On Tuesday the 8th of January I was with Upton and Avery, I saw the two prisoners coming towards us, Upton took hold of Oldham, and I took hold of Pickmore. As soon as I took hold of him, to the best of my belief, he put his hand into his breeches, and throwed something over the fence; I called to Avery, he went over, he did not find it then; then I said I should take them to the Shepherd and Shepherdess. Upon my searching of Pickmore I took from him a silver hunting-watch, and this pocket-book, containing some shop bills, memorandums, and duplicates.</p>
<p>Q. You do not know whose watch it is - A. No.</p>

<p>Q. Did you search her - A. Yes; we took her up stairs in the back room, she was searched.</p>
<p>Q. What did you find upon her - A. I cannot say that any thing was found upon her, she contrived to get into the corner of the room, and in the corner of the room was a chair; I desired the young man to call up a female servant to search her, on his return I desired her to walk into the room. While he was absent I had strong suspicion that she was endeavouring put down the goods that she had about her; as the servant came up stairs I desired her to walk into the middle of the room; I looked down underneath her chair, I there saw a pocket lay.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know whether that pocket was there when she first came in the room - A. I am not certain, as I did not look. When I saw the pocket lay I took it up, I said, this is sufficient proof, this pocket contains our property. I did not examine the pocket untill
<persName id="t18110220-23-person249">Burton</persName> the constable came, then I took up the pocket in my hand, and turned the ribbons out. I recognized the principal part to be our property, the contents were seven half pieces of ribbon, amounting to one hundred and twenty-six yards. She disowned the pocket as being hers.</p>
<p>Q. Had any of these pieces your shop mark - A. One or two my own mark, and the other the mark of the young man we employ, his name is

<p>Q. What is the prime cost of these ribbons - A. About three pound ten shillings; we estimated them at three guineas, the lowest value.</p>
<p>HENRY MAGG. I was in the shop when the prisoner came in, she asked me if I sold night caps; I told her, yes; she looked at ribbons, and bought ribbons to the value of nine shillings and ten-pence; she clapped a silk handkerchief over the ribbon drawer, which was quite open, that made me suspect her; she gave me two five shilling pieces, I gave her twopence change. I was half over the counter, going to take her to Mr. Steven's; she asked me if I sold narrow ribbon, I told her, yes; she looked out as much as came to one shilling and tenpence, and I gave her the change; then I took her into the back shop. On her going up stairs she had her hand behind her, endeavouring to break the string of her pocket. Mr. Stevens told me to go for a constable, the pocket was found while I was gone.</p>
<p>Q. Did you find there was any ribbon missing out of the drawer - A. I thought there was.</p>
<p>- BURTON. I produce the property, it has been in my possession ever since.</p>
<p>Q. to prosecutor. Was there any woman of your family in the room before the search - A. No, only myself. There are one or two pieces not marked, these three that are marked that I swear to are worth thirty shillings.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. He put private marks upon them ribbons when the constable was in the place.</p>
<p>Q. to prosecutor. Is that true - A. Yes; but these three that I swear to had marks before.</p>

<p>GEORGE CLERKE. I am a watchmaker. On Monday the 11th of February the prisoner Atkins came to my house and informed me he was going to purchase some foreign silver; a friend of his, a one legged lieutenant, was to introduce him to the person that had it to sell, it was to be sold at a public-house near Berkley-square; I cautioned him not to have any thing to do with it; I told him if the people had come honestly by it, they would go to a refiners, or to a silversmiths shop, where they could get more by it than he could afford. He borrowed my scales and weights, I lent them to him having known him about two years.</p>
<p>Q. What is he - A. An hawker, or pedlar, during which time I have trusted him at several periods to the amount of forty or fifty pounds, he has been frequently in my shop, where valuable articles lay about, both of gold and silver; I had not the least doubt of his honesty. I also told him, after he had borrowed the scales, that he had better go to a silversmith's shop, and have it weighed, and valued, by which means he would not be wronged; he told me he could depend upon his friend the lieutenant. He returned the scales the next morning, I was not at home; I saw him in the afternoon, he told me he had made a purchase of the silver, and gave five shillings the ounce.</p>
<p>Mr. Gleed. Did you know where Atkins lodged - A. He told me in London-street, Fitzroy-square. I was present at the time of his apprehension, he was apprehended in my shop, he then acknowledged every thing.</p>

<p>Q. On the morning of Sunday the 5th of February were you in St. Paul's Church-yard - A. I was, about seven in the morning, I was going into Cheapside, I there saw the two prisoners at the bar, they were a little separate they were talking to each other, and walking in one direction. I was in Cheapside, I saw them going towards Foster Lane, whether they came out of the Old Change or St. Paul's Church-yard I cannot say, Potter had a bundle under his arm in a cotton handkerchief, Potter stopped and looked up Foster-lane as if for a direction, Aaron went a little before making a sign to him to follow him; Potter followed him and I followed him, and I followed them both to watch them: they came to Gutter-lane, Potter made another stop as if to go down there, and immediately Aaron beckoned him on again, he followed him again to Wood-street. They went down Wood-street, Aaron taking the right-hand side, and Potter the left. The Jew went into Lad-lane, Potter stepped forward and over shot Aaron, he looked back and turned down Lad-lane after Aaron; when they both took down Lad-lane, I stopped at the corner, I heard Aaron say, there is somebody watching us, give me the bundle; Potter give him the bundle, and Aaron put it under his coat. Aaron said to Potter leave me, Potter did not leave him but kept a little behind, he separated and went on the opposite side behind, I kept close to Aaron - they took to King-street, along Cateaton-street, and then to the Old Jewry; they both then kept of the left hand side of the way, and went into the Poultry, they went through the Poultry up to Goodluck's in Cornhill, there they separated at the corner of the Bank buildings, Aaron took Cornhill and Potter the Bank-buildings, I kept close to
<persName id="t18110220-27-person294">Aaron</persName> all the way, he might have heard my steps if he was not deaf, his eyes were upon me all the way, when Aaron got to the Royal Exchange door he dropped the bundle, and I picked it up.</p>
<p>COURT. Was Potter in sight then - A. I saw him looking at the corner, and when I picked up the bundle he decamped. When Aaron saw that I picked up the bundle he went away quick down one of the alleys by the Exchange. I looked over my shoulder, and saw Potter at the corner of the Bank buildings, he saw me pick up the bundle, and I saw no more of him, he saw me pick it up. I found the bundle heavy, opened it and saw it was metal, which I afterwards found was silver. This is the handkerchief it contains the silver. On the next day I went to Rundle and Bridge, Ludgate-hill, and there I found the owner of the property I delivered it to Mr. Fox, their clerk. On Wednesday I went to their manufactory in Dean-street, I saw the prisoner Potter, I am sure he is the man.</p>
<p>Q. Did you describe the person of Potter before you saw him - A. I did, Potter was sent into a yard where there were other persons; as soon as ever he made his appearance, I said, that is the man, I am positive he is the man I saw with this bundle. Aaron was taken up on the Monday following, I was present when he was apprehended in Crown-court, Wardour-street. Aaron perceived me looking at him he held his head down, when I saw his face, I was sure he was the man I saw with Potter.</p>

<p>Q. For some time before this transaction was discovered had you missed silver from your manufactory - A. Yes, we had, I had no suspicion of Potter, he was our porter.</p>
<p>Q. Upon this being brought to you by Mr. Smith, this that is produced here to day, were you confident it is your property - A. Yes, I am. The silver was in the possession of Mr. Smith, at Ludgate Hill; I went there and saw it, they are our patterns, we had some patterns peculiar to ourselves, the weight of it is one hundred and twenty seven ounces, the value is upwards of thirty pounds.</p>
<p>Q. These pieces that you have there are they
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181102200020"/>called silver cuttings - A. Yes, they are, in the trade; they are our patterns. We never sell them in that state; we melt them down. I have no doubt of all of them being mine.</p>
<p>Q. When Mr. Smith came to you did he describe to you the person that he saw - A. He did, and upon that I sent Potter into the yard; Mr. Smith selected Potter immediately. Potter was taken into custody. When we walked out to his lodgings Foy the officer accompanied us; he confessed that he had stolen a few ounces of silver, which we should find at his lodgings; he denied the silver he was charged with. Afterwards, in consequence of something Potter said, I sent to Mr. Smith, and we had Aaron taken in custody.</p>
<p>- FOX. I am clerk to Rundle and Bridge. I received them cuttings of Mr. Smith.</p>
<p>Potter said nothing in his defence; called two witnesses, who gave him a good character.</p>
<p>Aaron said nothing in his defence; called eight witnesses, who gave him a good character.</p>

<p>Q. Were you in the habit of going to the deceased Joshua Crickett's house - A. Yes, I have been in the habit of going to him at the Weavers alms-houses about two years and a half, to carry him weekly payments, sometimes twelve shillings, sometimes eight shillings, and latterly four, from Mr.

<p>Q. On Saturday night the 9th of February last did you go to the alms houses - A. In the evening I did, with four shillings as usual. When I knocked at the door the prisoner called who is there? I answered, it is me; the door was not opened at first; after I had been there sometime she opened the door about one third; she stood behind the street door, put her hand out and asked me if it was silver; I told her it was copper, she told me I could not come in, her uncle was unwell and dozing; I walked in, I approached the table; she then went on the other side of the table and endeavoured to conceal somewhat from me, she prevented me from coming round the foot of the bed; she treated me in that manner three times, as I moved she moved, to cover somewhat as I suppose. I then said, if it is unpleasant to you for me to bring the money, Miss Woodthorpe, you must come to my house for it. She had been to my house on the Thursday before, but did not inform my family; I asked her what was the matter with her uncle on the Thursday, she said no matter now. On the next morning my wife received this letter from her, I immediately came home and received this letter; I went there on the Sunday about one o'clock, I took an officer with me; when I entered the room I said to her, you have sent me a letter; she said, here is a copy of it.</p>
<p>(The letter read, signed R. Woodthorpe.)</p>
<p>"MR. HOLLOWAY.</p>
<p>I am sore distressed; I gave my uncle a piece of cake and wine the last thing before I went to bed, I left the knife and piece of cake upon the night stool. In my first sleep he reached the knife, and cut his throat; it was unknown to me; I was awoke by a strong smell, and when I turned myself I found I was all in blood; it was about half past two in the morning, and I all alone. I am much distressed; my mind is hurt in doing for him, and now to have a painful end. I shall thank you come and advise me what to do.</p>
<p>Yours, in great trouble,
<persName id="t18110220-28-person304">R. </persName> WOODTHORPE.</p>
<p>Mr Holloway; Here is the identical bit of cake that was put on the night stool to cut. I told the prisoner. I believed she had cut her uncle's throat; she said to her friends,</p>
<p>"do you hear what Mr. Holloway says, his words were always like swords and daggers to me." After this I went to the deceased, I found he could not articulate.</p>
<p>Q. What aged man was the deceased - A. Eighty-three, a very infirm man; he was feeble all over his system; he could not walk about for the last two or three months, he was bed ridden. When I went to his bed side his wound had been dressed; I found he was unable to articulate; I asked him if he did this act to signify it by holding up his hand. I am sure he knew me, his eyes were open, he shook hands with me, he did not hold up his hand; I then asked him if his niece did it to signify it by holding up his hand. He did not.</p>
<p>Q. Did you observe the linen on the bed whether there was much blood - A. There was a deal of blood where he laid, but none where Miss Woodthorpe laid.</p>
<p>Q. Was she in the habit of sleeping with her uncle - A. So she informed me, on account of his infirmity. I returned the next day between four and five, before day light, then I examined the bed particularly, I found no blood on the side that Miss Woodthorpe slept; I found a small pen-knife in the bed; I then said to him, Mr. Crickett, did you do this act; he said, no. He could then articulate with sufficient clearness. I asked him if his niece did it; he said, yes: I was astonished when I heard him say so. There was no one present but the nurse that I placed there, her name is Johnson. I let him rest. It was much labour to say yes, he could say no; there was much wind issued from the wound.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see the throat at that time - A. I did not before I went to the magistrate; I asked him again, Mr. Crickett did you do this? he said, no. Did your niece do this? he said, yes. After that I went to the magistrate, the magistrate came there, I was present, the examination took place about two o'clock. On the evening of the same day, between eight and nine o'clock, I went there again, my daughter Boosey and her husband was present. When I entered the room I went to his bedside, I found he was more capable of articulating than I had seen him before; I then said to him, Mr. Crickett, did you cut your own throat; he said, with a peculiar emphasis, no; I then said, did your niece do it, he replied plainer than I had heard him before, yes.</p>
<p>Q.At any of these conversations was the niece
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181102200021"/>present - A. When the magistrate was there she was present, but no other time.</p>
<p>Q Do you recollect at any period of his life whether he had been insane - A. In the middle part of his life he had been insane, I understand, and about seventeen years ago I thought I saw a little wildness in consequence of some little misfortunes, it soon went away; from that time to his decease I did not observe the least return of it. I saw the wound almost a day before he died; the windpipe was nearly cut through; some tapinda that he took came through it. I fetched Mr. Fox to dress the wound. The last conversation that I had with him was a few minutes before his death. Mr.

On the Saturday night, about nine o'clock, I saw her, I believe she did not stop with me ten minutes. I saw her the next morning about eight o'clock, she came to me in great distress; she said, my uncle has cut his throat, about two o'clock in the morning, as nigh as she could guess; she was awoke with a great smell; she went round to her uncle, and said, uncle, what have you been doing; she received no answer, nor had not received any answer up to the time that she was speaking to me; I asked her why she did not call for assistance; her reply was, as her uncle was not dead she did not wish to disturb any body. I called my husband to go for assistance. He did. I went in on the Monday morning, and kneeled down by his bed side, I believe he saw me, I told him my name was Sarah Saunders; I said, Mr. Crickett, I am going to ask you a question, I hope you will resolve it; I said, Mr. Crickett, did you do this act yourself; his reply was, no, quite distinct; I asked him the second time, Mr. Crickett, are you sure that you did not do it yourself; he answered no; I then said, did your niece do it; after resting some time he replied, yes, distinctly. I asked the two persons in the room to give attention, they said the heard it; they are not here.</p>

<p>Q. Did you see whether the windpipe was cut - A. Mr. Fox put his finger in as he was laying on his right side; that side of the bed was very bloody, the other side was not.</p>
<p>Q. When you saw him in the morning state what past - A. The prisoner met me at the door and said, I am glad to see you. I then went and uncovered the bed, he seemed to me to be done bleeding. I asked the prisoner how long it had been done; she said she awoke at about half past two in the morning and found herself all in blood; she said to him, uncle, what have you done; he made no reply; she got up and walked about the room till she was very cold, then she lit the fire; I said, why did not you send for assistance before now; she said, she wanted somebody to administer that advice. I asked her what he did it with; she said a table-knife; I said, let me look at it; she gave it me out of the closet; I said, you have wiped it; she said, she had on a flannel waistcoat that he had tied round his body; she had taken the waistcoat off his arms, and wiped the knife on that flannel waistcoat. She then produced me a copy of a letter that she had sent my father telling me that she writ that copy in case any thing should happen. I asked her where she found the knife, because she said her uncle did it, and she supposed he had flung it out of bed; she said she found it afterwards at the foot of the bed, by his side.</p>

At one o'clock I went to the house again; I saw him then, and conversed with him; I sat down by his bed-side. I said Mr. Crickett, I am Mr. Lemaire's son, your old acquaintance; he looked up, and put out his hand; I said, Mr. Crickett, did you do it yourself, he drawed his hands together, and said, no; he then put his hands together, his lips muttered; what he said I could not understand; he appeared to me to be in devotion, he appeared then rather saint; I suppose it was two minutes before I put another question to him, I then said, who did do it Mr. Crickett; he made no reply; I said, did your niece do it, Mr. Crickett; at that time his hands laid upon the sheet, he raised his hand and put it to his throat, but did not speak; I put the same question to him three times, every time he repeated the same motion by putting his hand to his throat, but did not speak. I know the prisoner was at Worship-street Office, I went there, and the magistrate came with me to the dying man's apartment. At seven o'clock in the evening, on the same day, I went to Mr. Crickett's house, I kneeled down by the bedside, he appeared to me to be more revived than when I had seen him in the middle of the day; I put my hand on his shoulder, he looked at me, I said my name is Lemaire. Did you do this rash act yourself, Mr. Crickett; he said, no, and that strong. Did you do it yourself, Mr. Crickett - no. At that time the air issued through the aperture of the windpipe, and he appeared saint, I gave him some wine, it issued out of his windpipe. I said as your dissolution is issuing, I hope you are prepared for where you are going; he turned his head upon the pillow and said, no; Mr. Crickett are you sure that your niece did it; he said, yes. Mr. Crickett are you sure that you did not do it yourself? no. Are you sure that your niece did it? Yes. They are the last words I heard him utter.</p>
<p>Mr. Alley. During the time that you have known Mr. Crickett do you know of your own knowledge of his being deranged - A. Yes; I know of his being confined in Bedlam, the first time 1777 or 78. I was then but young. I cannot say how long he was confined; he afterwards came out, he was restored to his faculties; in 1785 or 86 he was deranged again; after that I have heard that he was deranged a third time.</p>
<p>Q. Have you ever observed any appearance of derangement about him lately - A. No, but a great dissatisfaction about him, his salary being so small.</p>
<p>SAMUEL FOX. I am a surgeon, I live in Bishopgate-street. On Sunday the 10th I went to the deceased about ten o'clock in the morning, I found a wound across the throat, from two to three inches in length, and about one in depth; the windpipe was partly divided. I asked the deceased if he cut his throat himself; he said no. I asked him if his ce cut it, he made no reply to that. I afterwards dressed it; he appeared to have last a vast deal of blood. I have known him about eighteen months and frequently attended him; I have seen a mental variance in his understanding I never saw him of his bed for the time I knew him; I should suppose he was bed ridden.</p>
<p>Q. From the infirm state he was in, he being bed ridden, was he capable of inflicting that wound himself - A. I should think not. In insanity I should; think he might possess more energy at that time; that wound was the cause of his death.</p>
<p>Mr. Alley A momentary fit of insanity produces momentary strength - A. No doubt of it.</p>
<p>Q. And a man more advanced in life is more liable to it at that time - A. Certainly The large arteries were not cut, if they had been cut he would have bled to death; the smaller ones might stop The wound might be inflicted on the Saturday before; what time it is impossible for me to state.</p>

<p>Q. to Mr. Holloway. Did you hear her state what expectation she had - A. I did, on Saturday the 25th of January. She asked me to go to ask Mr. Holloway of the bank to let her have twenty pounds; she said she was very much embarrassed, she wished to go into the country and leave her uncle; I asked Mr. Holloway if he would let her have twenty pound; he said no; I returned the same evening and acquainted her with Mr. Holloway's decision. She said she did not know what she should do; I told her if she was distressed it was a pity but what she should go in the country, and leave her uncle at once, we would take care of him. In our conversation I proposed his going into St. Bride's workhouse. I told her as he had fifteen shillings and nine-pence coming in he would be very comfortable there; Miss Woodthorpe seemed much pleased, and said that exactly met her idea. I then said to her, remember Miss Woodthorpe you will not have the goods; your uncle told me twenty years ago that he had willed them to Mr. Holloway of Hampton-court, and Mr. Holloway of the Bank. She then said, I do not know what I am to do now, Mr. Holloway will not let me have twenty pound, and I am not to have the goods; what am I to do, I cannot

The prisoner first came to our shop in December, he said, do you buy waste paper. I answered yes, if it was clean, I would give him four pence a pound for it, he said he was clearing out an old warehouse, where a large quantity of waste paper lay which was consigned to be burnt, he came the next day with four or five books, which we purchased at four pence per pound at different times he sold to me from a hundred weight to an hundred weight and a quarter. I delivered up the whole that I purchased.</p>
<p>Smith. I have looked the books over, they are the property of Messrs. Colson and company, and those from the year 1790 to 1800 were deposited in a chest. I told the prisoner those in the chest, were not to be destroyed.</p>
