<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes—the foreman also received money—he and the prisoner had different rounds—a party has collected since, and stated that the prisoner wished to pay the money, if I liked to take so much a week—I did not say I would give him four months to pay it—I would not take it in that way—I said, if he brought the whole money, I would take it—I said I would not compromise it; I was determined to make an example, for within four years I have had twenty men, and sixteen of them have robbed me.</p>

About eighteen months ago, in Dec. or Jan., Sharp came to my lodging, in Hartshorn-court—he had a parcel with him—he asked me to be so kind as to let him leave it—it was a little crockery-ware, and a few things he brought from his lodging—he left it, and came again in half an hour and took it away—I went to put a little water in the kettle, and my foot kicked against the parcel—I did not open it, but I could tell by the handling that it was shoes or boots.</p>

<lb/>ter of Margaret Glynn—About Christmas, eighteen months ago, Sharp came to my house—he had nothing when he first came—he left, and went out—he came back in a few minutes with a bundle, with a cloth on it—I saw they were boots—I went out with a supper to the man I live with, and while I was gone Sharp offered to sell a pair—an elderly man and two policemen came and took Sharp and my sister—I followed them to the station; and Sharp said what a lucky job it was he was not taken before, as he would have been
<hi rend="italic">catched</hi> with what he had—I knew he meant the boots—I asked him where he got them—he said not five minutes' walk from my house.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> When were you first spoken to about it since that time?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> When I first got the summons—I think it was within the last three weeks—I had never spoken to anybody about the boots up to that time, nor anybody to me—the gentleman that served me with the summons told me Mr. Cowan's shop had been robbed eighteen months ago—I should have known the time if he had not told me—it was a week or a few days before Christmas—I had not thought anything about it from Christmas 1844 till now—I never heard that Mr. Cowan's shop had been robbed before—I never said it was six or seven months since that he brought the boots—when the gentleman first brought the summons he asked me how long it was ago, and I did not recollect what he meant—he said, "Do not you remember the boots and shoes?" and then I recollected it was about eighteen months ago—it was in consequeuce of what be told me I said it was eighteen months ago.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Who first spoke to you about this lately?
