In order to show your lordship that your threats cannot intimidate me, whatever effect they may have bad upon the weak parties whose agencies I had employed to dispose of my pamphlets, I beg to inform your lordship that I shall shortly open a shop, where I sahll in person superintend the sale of my pamphlets; when the spot is decided upon, your lordship shall have the earliest intimation of it; when the world shall see who has the most courage—your lordship in attempting to carry your threats into execution, or I in resisting them. But should your lordship-thirst for immediate revenge, your wishes can be gratified. If your lordship will send a line to the above address, appointing a place and hour where and when, I shall be happy to attend your lordship's com

The enclosed handbills will convey to your lordship something of my intention, the completion of which has only been delayed by the difficulty I have experienced in finding an eligible public situation for vending the pamphlets. In conclusion, I reiterate what, upon every occasion I have alluded to in my communication with your father, viz. that I seek but for justice; and until I have it I will pursue every legal means within the compass of my ability to attain it.</p>

<hi rend="italic">one of these was headed "Sketch High Life," &c., and the other, a smaller edition of the same</hi>.)—Reitterhoffer was present when both those placards were printed—he brought a copy in the first instance, and when he first brought it, Teuten objected to print it—Reitterhoffer then altered it to its present form—it was then printed by Teuten's workmen—I do not recollect what the alteration was—at the latter end of May this year, Teuten and myself were, walking toge
<lb/>ther—asked me if I could get him some men to carry boards—I told him I could, and I got him four—he asked me to get him six—I heard Teuton, tell the men they were to exhibit the placards in Belgrave-square, to and from the Horse Guards, Hanover-square, and in Regent-street, and May Fair—Teuten appointed the men to meet at his house on the Monday morning, to meet Reitterhoffer—Teuten afterwards told me that Reitter
<lb/>hoffer had met the men at ten o'clock in the morning—he told me they were to be paid half-a-crown a day each—Reitterhoffer was to advance the money to Teuten to pay them—the defendant Bryan was one of the men—he was taken into custody the first day he went out—Teuten told me that Reitterhoffer watched the board men—he said Reitterhoffer was in Hanover-square watching them—Teuten told me the man was taken into custody on account of carrying the board, and that the board was to be detained at the office, and they were to apply by counsel to the Magistrate to get the board—Teuten told me so—there was general conversation in Teuten's office amongst the men about the placards—in Teuten's pre
<lb/>sence and in his absence—he was present at times—Teuten told me that Reitterhoffer expected 5000
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. by these placards, the property that the Mar
<lb/>quis of Downshire robbed him of by a will—I have frequently seen Teuten and Reitterhoffer together—I have heard Reitterhoffer say he expected the 5000
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. and he would not let the family rest until he obtained it—I am sure I heard Reitterhoffer say that—I have heard him say it several times—Teuten was present when I have heard him say so—I will swear that—he was present several times when Reitterhoffer said that—it was the general conversation—several other persons were present in the office—the work
<lb/>men—it was the common talk among them—I remember hearing that the boards were taken and broken—after that I heard Reitterhoffer say he felt quite indignant at the boards being broken, and said the Downshire family were a set of d—d thieves, and he would not mind pistolling of them.</p>

I was accused by one of your noble family, at the office, of being concerned in the atrocious libel one your noble family, which I am sorry to say that I have been the dupe of Reitterhoffer and his gang too long. If your lordship would consent to ray discharge from Tothill-fields, (as I have a wife and one child depending entirely upon support from me,) I would be the means of suppressing the libel immediately. My lord, he has further got second and third editions immediately coming out, with several additional letters by the Lady Mary Hill and himself, and the correspondence between him and your lordship's family regarding the marriage and your approval of the same: Now, my lord, all I want is to get an honest and upright living; if you lordship will consent to the above, I will give you every, information which Will destroy his vile works. My lord, it lies in my power to appre

I was on duty in Hanover square on the 10th of June, about one o'clock in the morning, attending at the concerts—I saw the defendant Daly there, carrying a board on his shoulder, with a placard similar to this produced—he was walking to and fro opposite the Marquis of Downshire's house—there were two of them—he came all round the square, by the houses, and was delivering small bills out as well—there were a great number of persons assembled at the concert on that occasion—I dare say nearly eight hundred—a gentleman came across, and wished me to take him into custody—I did so, and said, "Who employed you?"—he said, "I don't know"—he did not know their names, nor where they lived—he said they were in the neighbourhood, and de
<lb/>scribed their persons—I saw two men coming up George-street, and he directed my attention to them—they turned out to be the defendants Fagnoit and Teuten—I kept Daly behind me, that they should not see him—when I was about thirty yards from them they could see me, accompanied by Daly, and they took to their heels, and ran down Brook-street—at the corner of Bond-street I found they began to separate, and I hallooed out, "Stop them"—they turned short round when they found people going to stop them, and Teuten turned round, and said, "What do you want with me? you hare no business with me, and I will make you pay for it"—I said, "Nevermind, you will go with me"—there were nearly three hundred people round, and they tried to rescue him from us—I took all three of them to Marl borough-street, with assistance—when we got there Teuten gave the name of Jones, I think—I cannot say what name Fagnoit gave, but the Magistrate said he had been in custody before—he denied it at first, but afterwards the Magistrate told him it was for publishing-obsence prints, and he did not deny it then—I found a bag on Fagnoit, containing paste and bills—these are the bills—(
<hi rend="italic">these were smaller edition of, the large placard</hi>)—Daly said they went to their lodging in the morning and told them they would give them 1

<p>
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Was anybody else mentioned as having employed them?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> He did mention some one—whether it was Reitterhoffer or who, I do not know—on the 20th of June, after all this had passed, I was on duty at the same place, the Hanover-square concert-rooms, and between two and three o'clock a man named John Smith, who is also indicted, came up, and began talking to me about the men being taken into custody, and if I did not take them—I said I did—he said, "If you will make a bit of a flaw in the in
<lb/>dictment, or won't attend, I will give you a score or two pounds"—he said "There is plenty of money flying," and they wanted me to make a flaw in the indictment, as I was the principal one, so that they might keep on about a twelvemonth—I was coming down here next day to go before the Grand Jury, and he wanted to know when he should meet me—I told him to meet me on the Friday, because I did not know whether I was justified in taking him into custody, and I thought I would see the solicitor or same of the family, to know whether I was justified in taking him—about half-past</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="183807090021"/>

<lb/>cerning some transaction with the Downshire family, by Reitterhoffer—I told him I considered it a scandalous publication—I mean the placard—he said they were willing to abide the result of it, and, in fact, they wished to have a prosecution against them—I was not satisfied, and gave Fagnoit notice to quit my premises at the earliest opportunity—he went before his time—I only had him as a monthly tenant—he talked about following it up by other works, and mentioned the Secret History of the Court of England—he said it was a publication that would take well, and he wanted to continue the sale of the work—he did not pay the month's rent because I had given him notice to quit—he said' he had gone to the expense of ad

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Did he tell you who he wanted the shop for?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> At the last is terview I understood him to say he was applying for Reitterhoffer—he mentioned him, but very slightly—he mentioned the name, and I under stood be wanted it for him; and as an inducement for me to let it, he offered to pay a month's rent in advance, and afterwards two months', or the whole twelvemonth—I think he told me who Reitterhoffer was—he said he had been in the service of the Downshire family, and had written this work, "The Faux-pas of the Downshire Family"—he did not tell me how long he had known Reitterhoffer, or why he interested himself about him—he did not say he was a friend of his—he applied several times about taking the shop, and said he applied for a friend—he afterwards named that friend as Reitterhoffer—I think I have seen Reitterhoffer—it is some years since.</p>

<lb/>body, to come to me at Tothill-fields-prison—a Mr. Thompson, I believe, came—he asked me how I could suppress it—I said by his assistance in apprehending Reitterhoffer, and that is all.</p>
