Jeffs and Martin came to me, and we agreed to go out to get what we could come at, we tried at several houses, and could not do any thing; then we came to a house in Dove Court, by Leather Lane. The Prisoner had a hanger under his coat, and he bid Jeffs not be afraid, and swore the first man that came to oppose them he would cut his head off: there was a latch to the door, and Jeffs turned the latch, opened the door, and went into the house about ten o'Clock at night, and brought something out in his apron, and began to run; Martin said, what do you run for? or something to that effect. He brought out a pair of sheets, and a pair of ribbed stockings.</p>
<p>Q. How far was Martin off at that time?</p>
<p>Bye . He might be half the length of the Court off. We went to Mrs. Lucas's to sell them and she did not buy them; then we went to the Prisoner Macklaughlin, otherwise Mason, otherwise Thomas, otherwise Little Moll , and asked her five shillings for them, she bid us eighteen pence, and at last gave us half a crown for them.</p>
