JAMES CHUBB . I am a harness-maker , and live at Holloway. On the 15th of March, about eleven o'clock, I was at the Lord Nelson, public-house, Shoreditch , the prisoner and two others were there - they asked me to give them a glass of gin. I offered the landlady a 5 l. note to pay for it - the prisoner snatched it out of my hand, put it down towards her pocket-hole, and would not deliver it up. The watchman took her - it was not found. She said if I would go to her house she would give me the note.

MARGARET HOARE . I keep the Lord Nelson. I was in the bar, and saw the prisoner snatch the note out of the prosecutor's hand.
