I am a waggoner , and a married man ,

The prisoners picked my pocket; on the 30th of August, I went to a public house, and was returning home about a quarter past ten at night; I was as sober as I am this instant; we had only three pints between two of us; the prisoners followed me into the gateway of the King's Arms; Holborn Bridge , which is an inn for waggons, where I come to; they kept inviting me home to their lodgings: they both were together; they kept pulling up my frock, and feeling about my pockets and trying to get my purse; this was under the first gateway, and Taylor took my purse out of my pocket, I felt her take it; there were four guineas and a half and several shillings; I saw my money at the public house, and counted it; then the prisoners ran away; there was a lamp close by; I never saw them before; I laid hold of Taylor before they were out of my sight; I never got my purse again; they both continued pulling me about; Carter was stopped about a minute afterwards; I am sure it was Carter; I am sure I refused to go home with them; I could not get rid of them.

Prisoner. We know nothing of it.

The prisoner Carter called one witness to her character.
