I lost a black silk cloak, last Sunday was a fortnight, from No. 1, Red-lion Court ; I was at a wedding, making merry; I was in the house at this time; I left it in the room, where I was sitting, in the kitchen, that was some time in the afternoon, but just to the time I cannot speak.


I live in Long-alley, I had a warrant against the prisoner, for stealing this cloak; I took her in Shoreditch last Monday fortnight; I took it out of her hand, and told her I had a warrant against her; she said it was her cloak; I kept the cloak ever since.

(Produced and deposed to.)

There was no change of cloaks, the prisoner had a red one on when she came.

Prisoner. This was my mother's cloak.

take a black cloak off a nail, and go out of doors, and come back with it.
