Henry Udall. The 27th of May about 10 o' Clock at Night, I had the Tankard. The Prisoner and the Evidence was with him then in the House, I had been walking with my Child to give him a little Air, and when I came Home I told over my Tankards; this was about 9. A quarter before 10, I told them over again, and they were all right; the Prisoner and the Witness were then in the House. I missed one immediately after they were gone, but I can't say they took it.
John Cornhill . The Prisoner and I run away with the Tankard the 27th of May between 10 and 11 at Night: We kept it till next Day, then we carry'd it to Robert Whitney 's in Brick-lane, and we sold it for 4 l. 16 s. and divided the Money between us.
Udall. I value it at 6 l at least.
Prisoner. He swears against me only for the sake of the Reward: I was ill that very Night this happen'd.
Udall. Upon my Oath the Prisoner was there: I had been out, and when I came home, I took particular Notice what Company was in the House.
David Barclay . The Prisoner I know has been out of Business; on the 11th of May he work'd for me: I am a Philosophical Instrument Maker; he went then away from me; and I saw him when he was ill, and paid him 3 s. which was due to him when he went away. He has work'd with me since; the 27th of October was the last Time. As the 27th of May, I can't Swear where he was then.
A Woman. He was very ill, the beginning of July, and came into the Country for the Air; but I can't speak to the 27th of May. Guilty . Death .
