Thomas Jaques . There were two boxes brought to me, about the beginning of January, to the George-Inn, Snow-hill ; they were to go down into Oxfordshire. I am the book-keeper ; I took them into my custody; they were taken away and I did not miss them till they were inquired after; I know nothing who took them.

Thomas Lloyd . I took the box of books out of the George-Inn yard, Snow-hill; Fosset and the two prisoners were with me; Richard Swift gave Fosset and me twelve shillings for them.

Both Acquitted .

See Swift an evidence against his accomplice, Joseph Golding , for a highway robbery, (No. 22, in April sessions, in Sir John Barnard 's mayoralty) who was capitally convicted and executed.
