Then we went to the Garden-house Door, and broke it open with an Iron Crow, and there we found a China Decanister, and a Pewter Cover. Then we broke open all the other Doors that stood in our Way, and rumaged the House from Top to Bottom. We took the Bedding and Pewter, and Brass, and what else we could come at, and carried them all to Dick's House, and most of them were sold from thence. The Bed and Bolster, and one of the Blankets were sold to Mr. Worth.</p>

<p>Mr. Worth. I am a Broker. Eliz. Green came and told me, that a Man and his Wife at Mr. Marshall's, were sell out, and that the Man was resolved to sell the Bed. I had known Mr. Marshall 10 or 12 Years. He kept a House at Cow-cross, and paid Scot and Lot, and lived in Credit, and no Body would have disputed to have bought any thing of him. So I went and bought the Bed for 35 s. and I could not afford to give more; for I had a Sale at Islington not long after, and I sent this Bed thither, and allow'd it at 40 s. but no body would give so much, and so I was forced to bring it home again.</p>
<p>R. Marshall. This Griffin has been reckon'd a Thief for these 5 and 20 Years, and he has brought so many People into Trouble only to save himself. Eliz. Green told me, that he and his Wife had sell out, and upon that Pretence he brought these Goods to my House, and told me that he had them from Holloway, and was resolved to sell them, and so I sent Eliz. Green to Mr. Worth's and he came and bought the Bed. The Jury
