I am a coachman to Mr. Atkins; it is a great livery coat that was lost, I hung it up in the horstry last Thursday week at ten o'clock at night, I missed it Friday evening about half after eight; I wanted the coat again and it was gone from the place where I left it; I found it again on Monday, with the prisoner at his mother's lodgings, the prisoner had it, but not on, he begged my pardon for it, he owned it was the coat that he took from the stable; he told me that he had had it on, that he took it off again to bring it back, he told me he was just going to bring it back; he was a coachman , his horses stood in the same stable as mine did.
