1015. EDWARD COOPER was indicted for a misdemeanor .

WILLIAM BENJAMIN SMITH . I am a cutler , and live in Lombard-street - I know Mr. Smith, a cutler, of Cheapside. On the 25th of March, the prisoner came to the shop and requested half-a-dozen of scissar-knives for Mr. Smith of Cheapside, and said that he lived with him. I did not know him, and, as he brought no note, I packed them up, and delivered them to him, but sent my porter to see if he delivered them safe. I have not seen the prisoner since - my porter is now seriously ill.

MR. JOHN SMITH . I am a cutler, and reside in Cheapside. I never sent the prisoner to the prosecutor for anything. I do not know him.

GUILTY .

Confined Six Months .
