101. JOSEPH BRATHWAITE , stealing 1 coat and 2 books; the goods of Samuel Ward.

SAMUEL WARD . I am a builder, and live at Lee, in Kent. I was doing some work six weeks ago, at a house in Bangor-place; I left a coat on the door of that house, and I missed it in the evening—it was about 12th Oct.—there were two books in the pocket of my coat—a Bible and a time book—these are them.

MARIAN SMEE . I live at Lee; the prisoner lodged in my house. I recollect his bringing these books to the house; he said they were given to him by his employer, who lived at Bermondsey—it is about six weeks ago.

JOSEPH GREEN (policeman, R 313). I apprehended the prisoner on 20th Oct.; I found in his bed room these two books.

Prisoner. I had the Bible given me; the time book I found.
