JOHN ROBERTS. I was employed to take down the shopfront, and set Burn about it; Kennedy had worked for me the week before, and was waiting to be put on again - there was some lead to be taken down, they were to take it to Mr. Gildaurie's, in Mount-street, St. Giles'; I saw it taken down, but do not know where it was taken - I cannot tell what day it was.
WILLIAM CORNER. I work for the prosecutor in Mount-row. Kennedy brought about 50lbs. of lead there, and Burn came about the same time - they afterwards came back together, and Burn said to Kennedy, "You have made a mistake about this lead;" he put it on Burn's shoulder, and they went away.
