<lb/>ting down without her gown before them—she said I was too particular,' the did not mind the boys.</p>

<hi rend="italic">s</hi>. in it—I was rather under the influence of drink, but I knew what I was about—about eleven o'clock the prisoner and I went out together, and the other woman left us—I went into the fields with the prisoner, and laid down and went to sleep—I do not know whether I paid her any thing—I had a watch, fastened to a guard round my neck—the purse was in my right-hand pocket—I awoke between four and five o'clock in the morning, and she was gone—I missed my watch directly I awoke—the guard-chain was broken—I went into a public-house immediately, and then missed my purse—the prisoner was taken next evening—this is my watch—(
<hi rend="italic">looking at it</hi>)—I did not give either the watch or purse to her.</p>
