Another considerable piece of Evidence, was that of one Briggs, a Boy of eleven Years Old, at the Green Man near Billingsgate, who depos'd, That six Men came to his Father's House, about four a Clock in the Morning, and being near, had the opportunity to see and hear what pass'd, which was after this manner, (Viz.)

That he heard Bunch say, We have made a pretty good Hand on't too Night; and Hall reply'd, that he hop'd they should make a better Hand on't to Morrow Night. Being ask'd, how he could distinguish one from another? reply'd, that when they spoke aloud, they call'd one another Brother Stitch, but when they spoke softly, they call'd one another by their proper Names. That before they went away, they made an Appointment to meet at the Three Fighting-Cocks in Bun-hill Fields, between Five and Six a Clock that Night; and this Evidence acquainting his Father with it, he suspecting them to be ill Persons, acquainting some stout Men with it, they engag'd to go to the place to take them, but not finding them in the House, as they came away they met them going thither; in their pursuit, the Prisoners fir'd several Pistols at them, but at last they apprehended them.
