<p>Q. What is Davis?</p>
<p>Goodwin. Davis has worked for us many years. He did at this time. He was a lost-man, to look after the white goods that came in and fort them. I took him up, and in consequence of this, I found goods at several pawnbrokers. I found a remnant of shaloon at Mr. Marshalls's; and at Mr. Andrews's I found two remnants of scarlet hair shag, two remnants of Pompadour cloth, and a remnant of orange coloured shaloon; at

<interp inst="t17690405-9-person99" type="gender" value="female"/> </persName> 's, in Paul's Alley, I found a remnant of Pompadour cloth; and at Mrs. Day's, in Play-House-Yard, Whitecross-street, I found two remnants of orange coloured shaloon, two remnants of black amen, and a remnant of scarlet hair shag; at Mrs. Dyson's I found a remnant of orange coloured shaloon; and at Mr. Alefounder's in Petticoat-lane, who had advertised things stopped, I found a remnant. These were our property. I suppose Davis stole them, because his wife, through the assistance of the girl, had disposed of them. I have inquired Andrews's character, and find it a very good one. The girl took me to his house, and asked for the things which she had pawned. He delivered them very readily without asking for any money.</p>
<persName id="t17690405-9-person100"> Elizabeth Taylor

<interp inst="t17690405-9-person100" type="gender" value="female"/> </persName> . I received the things of Davis's wife, and pawned them by her order, and gave her the money.</p>
<p>Q. Did Davis ever send you with any?</p>
<p>E. Taylor. Davis was never by but once. She gave me the piece to pawn, and he was by when I came back with the money, and I gave it to him.</p>
<p>Q. Did he know what the money was for?</p>
<p>E. Taylor. Yes. His wife told him what it was for she told him she got me to carry that piece or shaloon. It was orange coloured shaloon, and I pawned it for half a crown.</p>
<p>Q. Is that here?</p>
<p>E. Taylor. No it is not. (The things found at Andrews's produced in court and deposed to.)</p>
<p>Q. to Goodwin. Had Davis's wife been used to come to your house?</p>
<p>Goodwin. I do not remember I ever saw her at our house. I do not know that I know her. After these things were found, Mr. Andrews brought some black amen and green amen to our house, when I talked with Davis about it; he said it was not that, but it was a darker cloth that he had taken.</p>

<interp inst="t17690405-9-person101" type="gender" value="male"/> </persName> . I am a beadle. I took the things found at the pawnbrokers mentioned in the indictment.</p>
<p>Q. Did you meet with any difficulty at Andrews's when you went for the things?</p>
<p>Ellis. No, none at all. He produced them readily. He has a very good character.</p>

<interp inst="t17690405-9-person104" type="gender" value="female"/> </persName> worked for me. Davis's wife sent for her. She returned to me, with some cloth in her lap, very fuddled. I insisted upon knowing what she had in her lap. She would not let me see till I got her into the kitchen. Then she pulled it out, and I stopt it; there were about two yards of it.</p>

<interp inst="t17690405-9-person105" type="gender" value="male"/> </persName> . I am a pawnbroker. There were four parcels of goods pawned with me by three different women. E. Taylor brought one piece, and wanted 16 s. upon it. I said it would not do for me, and made her take it back again. I cannot swear to any of the women that brought the four parcels. I turned several parcels back that Davis's wife brought.</p>
<p>Davis's Defence.</p>
<p>I know nothing of them. If they were pawned by my wife, I was no ways privy to it.</p>
<p>Andrews's Defence.</p>
<p>That girl came to me under fictitious names. Two pieces were pawned in one day; one in the
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176904050008"/> daytime, the other at candlelight, so that I did not discern the colour; if I had discovered that, I should have stopt her.</p>
