Rent, due to Mr. Huggins, October 23d, 1 Bedstead with Sacking Bottom, &c. I gave Mr. Bambridge a particular Account of the Value, in order for his disposing of them, the 2d Inventory consisted of the Plate, China, Rings, &c. with precious Stones and wearing Apparel, which was all made up, Mr. Bambridge being told by me, that it was not usual to Distrain necessary wearing Apparel, he said, set down such and such things sufficient to do so: I brought them in at first 30 l. Mr. Bambridge thought that too much, alledging there was Charges attending the Appraisement, and so I brought it in at 27 l. 16 s. 9 d. It is customary to have two Appraisors, but there was none but my self - after the Appraisement, I saw Mr. Bambridge put some of the things in his Pocket, as the Silver Tea Spoons, Rings, and small things, the rest, wearing Apparel, &c. into a Portmantua; there was a Brush found which is used for cleaning of Diamonds, upon which Mr. Bambridge said he believ'd there must be Diamonds, after that, looking every where, found the Rings, Mrs. Barkley look'd very Chagrin during this Rifling, and was turn'd on the Common-Side, without a Bed to lie on, and had not a Bed all the time of my Imprisonment, she was afterwards very much out of Order, talked wildly, would assert that the Lord Harcourt was not Dead, but would punish such Rogues as robb'd her.
Mr. Bambridge, desir'd this Evidence to tell the Court if he did not order him to put every thing down, who answer'd, he did, but added, that if he had had Money, he would have given 30 l. for the Goods himself, because he knew them to be worth so much, that he lower'd the price to 27 l. at Bambridges's desire; being ask'd what Conversation he heard at that time, he answer'd, Mr. Bambridge told Mrs. Berkley, that it was a Shame she should have there and not pay her Rent, for she had good comings In, Mrs. Berkley said, the House was the King's, and if the King sent her there she would pay no Rent; Turner said, that he had made several Distresses before, with Pindar, the Chamberlain, who Mr. Bambridge said was indicted that he might not be an Evidence for him, but was told that he was a Principal concern'd.

Mr. Rogers depos'd, That the Note was brought to him by the Prisoner for a good Note, and he took it; that Mr. G - drew it, and it was Indors'd (as he thought) by Mr. Gardner; the Prisoner did shew him the Note. without Indorsement, and he sent Young along with him, to see if Mr. Gardner would Indorse it, but he refused it, and the Prisoner said Mr. Gardner, was out of Humour, but he would get him to do it presently. - About 2 o'Clock the Prisoner brought the Note again Indors'd, saying, that the first time Mr. Gardner was vex'd because he sent the Porter with him, so he let him have his Goods, being 3 Pieces of Black Cloth.

Kents Landlord thus depos'd, The Sunday after the Robbery, the Prisoner came, and would have had her agreed, and took up my Wife for keeping a disorderly House, because he thought it was in her power to have prevail'd with Kent to make it up; and the Prisoner propos'd to have Releases, said, he had such things by him, and 'twas but Scratching out one Name and putting in another, all which Kent refus'd.
The Prisoner said there were 6 Bawdy-Houses in the Court, and that they were all Whores and Bawds that were Evidences against him, and that this was, on Account of his disturbing them sometimes.
Hall added, that about 8 or 9 Weeks after her Husband was Dead, the Prisoner wanted to come and live with her whether she would or not; and once brought a Pistol, and threatned to shoot her if the refus'd.
The Prisoner said he was innocent, not knew nothing of what they charg'd him with, adding, that he had an Estate to come to him, in Houses, in that Neighbourhood; then had his own Witnesses call'd.
Joseph Dawson (Constable) depos'd, That he serv'd a Warrant on five of the Women, carry'd them before a Justice, and had them all bound over, but upon producing his Warrant in Court, it appear'd to be taken out some Days after the Robbery was committed, and was thought might be done to disable or frighten the Persons from carrying on the Prosecution.
Martha Pew depos'd, That another young Woman and herself, were with the Prisoner from 8 to 11 that Night, and no such thing happen'd, the other depos'd the same - but one of them bring order'd out of Court; Pew being ask'd if she saw the Prosecutor that Night, said she did, and that she was on the same side of the Way, very near them, but the
Dowler depos'd, That Kent was a vile Woman, and a Pick-pocket, and that the Prisoner sold Cloth.
A Watchman that beats in that Court depos'd, That he was call'd by a Man who charged Kent with robbing of him, and that Kent charg'd him with the Life-guardman, and he carry'd them to the Constable, that this Deponent liv'd in one of his Mothers Houses, and that his Mother supply'd him with Money very well, accept when he kept Company with lewd Women, or when he got Drunk, for then he was Mad.
Another depos'd, He had known him 8 or 9 Years, and never heard he wrong'd any Body,
Another (who the Prisoner seem'd to have seen in the Court by Chance) and desir'd might be call'd, to prove he had some Houses, thus depos'd, The Houses the Prisoner talks of, are his Mothers, but for himself, he is the vilest Fellow on Earth.
An Officer in Court being call'd by the Prosecutor, depos'd, That he knew nothing of the Prisoner himself, but when he has been towards Covent-Garden, where the Prisoner was known, he had heard People say, as the Prisoner passed along, there goes Jervis Rhodes , the greatest Rogue in England, the Jury found him guilty of the Indictment.

Fresh HOLT, BATH, and BRISTOL WATERS.
For the better supplying London with the above Waters, I keep three Teams of Horses, purposely to bring them fresh every Week; and tho' I am at so grate an Expence, I doubt for to sufficient Encouragement, and that the Publick will distinguish between Waters brought up by Sea (which sometimes are Months before they arrive, and many Months before all are sold) and Waters brought up by Land Carriage, especially as the Prices are the same. Every Person may send to my Shop,
At the Golden-Tea-Canister, in Fleet-Street, near Temple-Bar;
Where my Waggon stands, every Wednesday, from 6, and receive the Waters fresh out of it. I not only sell them at the same Prices as such as bring them up by See, but will also make a proper Allowance on Hath and Bristal Waters to such as sell them again.
What has gained the Holt Waters such a great Reputation, is chiefly the wonderful Success they have had in all Scrophulous and Scorbutick Cases, in the King's Evil, Running Sores, Inward Ulcers, Incident and even Bleeding Cancers, Inward and Outward Piles.
They have one extraordinary Virtue, which I have hither-to designedly for bore mentioning. viz. in strengthening and heating Weaknesses in the Seminal Vessels; but I am desir'd to mention it by several Persons who have been cured by them or old Gleets of long standing.
I fell the following Commodities at the most reasonable Rates, viz. Hott Waters 10 s. Bath Waters 7 s. 6 d. Bristol Waters 6 s. Spaw Waters 14 s. Piermont Waters 14 s. per dozen; Boavia Attack 14 s. Goa Attack 12 s. Jamaica Rum and French Brandy 8 s. per Ganon; Coffee, Tea, and Chocolate, at Prices in Proportion to their Goodness.
Master of the Holt Wells.

Roberts at the Oxford Arms in Warwick-Lane, in which Paper may be send full account of the Virtues of the Holt Waters , and P.P.Y. I refer the Reader.
