Abraham Marlow . I live at the White Horse in Little Britain , a public house. The prisoner came into my house on the 30th of October, for a halfpennyworth of aniseed, or gin. She took this quart mug, and put it under her cloak; as she was going out, I stopped her, and said what have you got there. She said nothing, I turned aside her cloake, and sawit under her arm, (produced in court, ) here is my mark upon it.

Prisoner's defence.

I thought to get a little small beer, so I took it to take it home in.

Guilty 10 d. W .
