The 11th of May in the Morning I was at Tom Smith's Cellar, and Bailey was there; Charles, come along with me, says he, I have been at a Place this Morning, and have got six Iron Bars, and I have sold them; but there's a Piece of Lead, I have not brought off, take the Sack, and we'll go and fetch it. I took the Sack, and with Tom Smith's Keys we went in; we had not been there half a Quarter of an Hour, before two Men came to the Door; we bolted it, and they went round and took us.
