James Phillips was tried for stealing a Gelding, price 10 l. and a Saddle and Bridle, value 3 s. 6 d. from one Thomas Cox on the 22d. of December last; Mr. Cox was riding into Bedfordshire, and the Horse was taken from him in the High-way, near Dunstable, but he could not charge the Prisoner to be the man, it being dark; but other Evidence swore that the Prisoner brought the Horse to an Inn at Westminster, where he was taken; the Prisoner denied it but the Fact was further corroborated by a Witness that was in company with Phillips when the Robbery was done. So he was found guilty of the Robbery.
