The humble petition of Elizabeth Green, sheweth, that she is an unfortunate woman, and rented a room of the prosecutrix, for the weekly sum of four shillings and sixpence; that your petitioner always most punctually paid her rent, until this time, when she was driven by distress to commit the act which has brought her before this bar. She fully intended, and told the prosecutrix that she would, leave every thing as she found it. I was about to go and get these things out, when the officer took me into custody, and I surrendered up the tickets freely, and without hesitation. By receiving the mercy of the honourable judge and jury, your petitioner will for ever feel bound to pray.</p>

I was returning home from Edmonton, on the evening of the 23rd of May; Mrs. Chaplain was with me; at about a quarter before ten, we were in Kingsland-road. The reason I was so late was that I was in expectation of a friend accompaning us home. I had a bundle in my hand, which contained two pair of shoes, two handkerchiefs, and some other little things; the shoes belonged to me, and the rest of the things to Mrs. Chaplin. Nothing
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181506210005"/>happened to us until we came opposite to the Duchess of York public-house, at the same side of the way, a man came up to the side of me from the fields, by the side of the public-house, and laid hold of my bundle; he did not say a word.</p>
<p>Q. Did he snatch it - A. No; he took hold of it, and tried to take it away; I resisted. He threw me down; by which means, he got the bundle, and ran away with it across the fields. I screamed out, murder, and two men came out of the Duchess of York, who followed him across the fields. I know the man; he was the prisoner at the bar; I looked at him while we were struggling for the bundle.</p>
<p>Q. Were you frightened - A. I was.</p>
<p>Q. Did you notice the man sufficiently to know that it was the prisoner at the bar? don't speak if you have any doubt - A. I am sure he is the man; he had on a light great coat, with white trowsers.</p>
<p>Q. Had he a hat on - A. He had a hat when he first came up to me; which he lost in the scuffle, and it was picked up by Mrs. Chaplin. When he ran away, he went without his hat. The next time I saw him was on the Sunday following, at Worship-street office; I could swear to him at that time. I had been to Edmonton, to see my mother; it was close to the door of the Duchess of York public-house that I was robbed; there were no persons near.</p>
<p>Cross-examined. I was very much terrified; I resisted much; I was very much alarmed; but from the view I had of the person who robbed me, I am certain it was the prisoner.</p>

The man was pulling the bundle out of her hand; she resisted very much, and he threw her down, and got the bundle. By her screaming murder, two young men came out of the Duchess of York. When he got the bundle, he ran across the fields.</p>
<p>Q. Was it before the two young men came out of the public-house, that the man who robbed Mrs. Palmer, ran across the fields - A. He was in the fields when they came out.

<p>Q. Did you observe the man so as to know him again if you should see him - A. No, I did not, I only knew his dress; he had on a light great coat, and a pair of white trowsers.</p>

On the 15th of May, I was at the house of a person named Cleveland, between the hours of eleven and twelve in the forenoon; there was a soldier of the same regiment, who had some claim upon his agent, and came up to me, and asked me to make it out for him, as he could not write himself. Knowing that it was a just claim, I went to make it out. I put my cap beside me with my pocket-book containing the notes, and a handkerchief in it. While I was writing, the prisoner sit on my left, where the cap was; I knew him before. I was going to return to my friends in Ireland by the coach that night, and the prisoner engaged to carry my trunk for me to the coach office. He said to me while I was writing, Serjeant, I am just going out, I will return in two minutes. I replied very well, and told him to make haste. I shortly afterwards missed my pocket-book, and the handkerchief in which my arm had been slung. The prisoner did not come back, so I immediately went to the Royal College, and asked the Serjeant of his ward, if he was in, he was a Chelsea pensioner. The serjeant told me he was not. In returning, I overtook him. I took him into custody immediately, I and an officer accompanied him to Sloane-square. I there insisted on his being searched, and on him were found some three shilling bank-tokens, a five and sixpenny piece, a shilling, and eleven pence in halfpence, together with the handkerchief, in which my arm was slung, and which he took out of my cap. I found neither pocket-book nor notes; he said, that he had changed one, and that the pocket-book and the remainder were stolen from him by a woman.</p>

I and my son were going to market on the morning of Friday the 2nd of June, and when we had got upon the Common, we perceived the young donkey making a great noise, it was three weeks and some days old. We could not see the mother, and my son remarked that she would not have left the foal of her own accord, and he thought somebody must have taken her. When we got to Notting-gate, we enquired of the gate-keeper if such a thing had gone through the gate, and he told us that two gypsies, one a tall man, and the other a short one, had gone towards London, with two asses. We went on to Tyburn, and there we made the same enquiries, and received similar answers; I directly came home, and sent my son to market, and told young master Atlee when I got down what was become of my ass, and told him his was gone also; he immediately set out for London.</p>

I immediately fetched two brother officers, who went with me where the boy directed us to. I asked the gypsies if the donkies were their property; they told me they were.

I was in my apron, and I was not suspected to be an officer. I asked the tallest man, who the donkies belonged to; he said, that they were his. I asked him if he would sell one; he replied, he would: would I buy one? With that I caught hold of him by the collar. The other gypseyman struck at Grey, but missed him, and hit another man, who fell on his face. A scuffle immediately ensued, and at length, after considerable resistance, both the prisoners were secured.</p>
<p>Smith's Defence. I was coming from Edgeware that morning, and I met a man with the two donkies; he asked me if I wanted to buy them, and I told him I did. I bought the donkies and I got my little couzen here to help me to get them to London. If I had known that they were stolen, I would not have bought them.</p>

I replied, you must have some, for you know you have just picked up my box, in Bond-street; he then said, is it your box? I told him it was; and he asked me to describe it; I did, and he then gave it me. I called an officer, and immediately gave him in custody.</p>

After turning over a considerable quantity, at last there appeared to be one which they liked, and they asked the price of it. The price was three pounds ten shillings; she did not approve of the price. I mean Thompson did not. They were going out, I stood chattering to them at the door, and at length I got them in again, I then lowered the price to two pounds fifteen shillings, and she bid me two pounds ten shillings, and which I agreed to take. I put it into a paper, and Joscelyn took out three one-pound notes and gave them to me. I went into the adjoining shop to get change, and when I returned into this shop again, I perceived Joscelyn with her right hand upon a shawl, which she was going to steal. I kept my eye upon her. She requested me to reach her a shawl, which she pointed out to try whether the one she had bought, was as long as it, she measured and was satisfied. While I was reaching, she pulled some shawls with her left hand, over her right hand, to avoid being seen, and she then took a shawl with her right hand, and put it into her pocket. She then expressed herself satisfied with the shawl she had bought. I wrapped it up in paper. She said, good afternoon, I have stolen that piece. I directly jumped over the counter, took hold of her by the arm, and I was putting her up four pair of stairs, into a passage to take her into a room to search her, she threw the shawl from her into the passage. I saw it fall from her about a yard. I called to Mr. Simmons, who came to my assistance. I did not see Thompson do any thing. She did not try to run away, if she choosed she might have escaped.</p>

<p>MRS. HERBRETCHER. I am wife to the last witness. The prisoner lived with me, we expected her to stay longer with us; but she left. There was no quarrel. She went away on the Saturday to see her friends, and we expected her to return on the Monday, but she never came; and that raised our suspicion. In consequence we searched, and found missing, a silk gown, value four pounds, a cotton gown, value ten shillings, two pair of stockings, value four shillings, three neckcloths, value two shillings, a dimity pocket, value one shilling, and one cotton apron, value one shilling and sixpence. I saw part of these things, on the Sunday before the prisoner came. The next time I saw the prisoner was accidently, last Sunday in Brick-lane. When we went to her lodgings, we did not find her, when we met her, we charged her with stealing the property, she told us, it was deposited at two pawnbrokers; and gave us their names, and places of abode. She told us the duplicates were destroyed. We found the silk gown, the dimity pocket, and one or two other things.</p>

We missed a counterpane, one shirt, one sheet, two table-cloths, one silk shawl, one child's jacket, one neckcloth, one black frock, a child's pincloth, a coat, a quantity of cheese and butter, and a quantity of lamb, for which I paid twelve shillings and sixpence.

<p>Q. To Mrs. Ireton. Could the prisoner have carried off all these things at once - A. No; she could not.</p>
<p>(The humble petition of Elizabeth Hetherell.)</p>
<p>Sheweth that your prisoner, was tried at this place last April three years. She was found guilty, and was sentenced to be transported to New South Wales. She was proceeding on her voyage thither, when She was taken by the French, and your petitioner and the rest of the convicts, were landed on the Island of St. Antonio. We were taken up by another British vessel, and were brought to Portsmouth. In consequence of my good behaviour on that voyage homeward, the captain and his lady, were interested in my behalf, and got me my free pardon. When I returned to London, I went to the Reffuge, and there I remained until I got the situation, in the family of the prosecutrix. The prosecutrix is a great drunkard herself, and used to make me drink gin, and other spirits. Her husband is a very sober man, and used to tell me not to encourage her in that practice. On the day stated in the indictment, I was intoxicated with the liquor which my mistress had given me, and I went out, leaving the door open. When I came to myself, I was afraid the house would have been robbed, and therefore I did not return. In consideration of my good character and behaviour, which induced the captain and his lady, to procure me a free pardon. I hope the honourable judge and the jury, will be induced to pity the case of an unfortunate culprit, for which your prisoner will for ever be in duty bound to pray.</p>

<p>COURT. Q. Had you any doubt about this man before the magistrate - A. I believe he was the man according to the look of his face.</p>

<p>COURT. You know all honest men do so.</p>
<p>Cross-examined. I have been a horse-dealer thirty years, and it is not the custom to give receipts; they are very seldom given.</p>
<p>Q. Is it at all extraordinary for you to buy a horse one day, and to sell him the next at a very considerable profit - A. Not at all in our business.</p>

When he entered our service, I informed him, that his two predeciatars had robbed me of considerable property, and I must always have the priviledge of searching his pockets. This he agreed to. On Wednesday the 17th of this month I went into the warehouse between two and three. When I opened the door I saw him recovering himself from stumbling, and he made rapid haste up to me. I asked him what was the master. He said he was only coming up to see who was at the door; I asked him what made him stumble, he said something on the floor; I asked him what he had in his hand, he said nothing. I then laid hold of his arms, and insisted on knowing what his hand contained; I opened it, and there were two nutmegs in it. I had some nutmegs in the warehouse, I said, it was very strange, after what I had told him He said, he did not rob me for a profit; he acknowledged that the nutmegs were my property, and that he had taken them for a pain it his stomach. Conceiving that me might have more about his person, I went for a constable, and insisted on searching him; I searched him, and found in his trowsers, a hask of twine; I asked him if that was for a pair in his stomach, and he said no, it was to make a fishing net. I felt on the outside of his trowsers, and two more pieces of twine were taken out. He said they were all to make a fishing net.</p>

I met the prisoner by appointment, for the purpose of purchasing some counterfeit three shilling pieces. I was employed by the Bank. I had but few words with Phillips. I met him by appointment at ten o'clock; and he appointed the same hour on Sunday morning, Saturday being their sabbath. I met him accordingly at that hour, the next morning, we did not say a word. We walked up the lane, and he gave me two dozen three shilling pieces, and I gave him two one pound notes. He sold the counterfeit pieces at half price; and he gave me four shillings change. I was parting with him, when I heard somebody cry out,</p>
<p>"a nose" meaning an informer. Immediately Phillips turned round and knocked me down, beat me most violently and a whole mob of jews gathered round; every one of whom had a knock at me. The prisoner ransacked my pockets, and took out the four shillings, and some of the others took from me a tobacco box, a knife, and a pocket handkerchief. There was a general cry of</p>
<p>"a mad dog, kill him, kill him." I received a severe injury in my inside, from the various kicks and bruises which I received.</p>
<p>The witness on his cross-examination could give no particular account how he got his living. He had been in service; he had been before a magistrate about stealing a handkerchief and fighting. At length he so much prevaricated and contradicted himself, that Mr. Serjeant Bosanquet, who was counsel for the prosecution, was oblidged to forego any further proceeding.</p>
