Mary Sutton of St. Dunstan at Stepney , was indicted for privately stealing 3 yards and half of Callicoe value 7 s.out of the Shop of Adam Walker , the 9th of March last. Mr.Walker deposed the Prisoner came to buy a Quilted Petticoat, but none pleased her, that she came a second and a third time but none were large enough for her; that coming a fourth time she was apprehended and dropt the Callicoe. Mrs. Walker confirm'd the same, and farther deposed, that the Prisoner desir'd her not to be in a Passion, and put 3 Half Crowns in her Hand, and bid her say that she bought it and did not steal it. Sarah Hopkins deposed; that she was in the Shop and saw the Prisoner take the Callicoe out of the Window, and ask'd Mrs. Walker whether she had paid her for it; and when she came back again saw her drop it. The Prisoner denied the Fact, but the Evidence being very full and positive, the Jury found her Guilty to the value of 10 d. Transportation .
