WILLIAM KAYE. I am a shopkeeper to Mr. Lamming, a linen-draper , 30, Ludgate Hill . On Monday the 5th of August, about four in the afternoon, I was returning from the door, I observed the prisoner watching the young man, who had been attending to her who had occasion to go into the back shop, and before he could return, she drew a piece of print off the counter, and secreted it under her clothes, I believe that she was not at all aware of my being at the door, and before the young man returned from the back shop, I placed myself at the back of her, so as she could not meet the young man without seeing me, she was desirous of getting to the counter, she could not because of me, I saw
