<p>Jones. The prisoner lived in the house with me, in the next room; she was taken the Saturday following; the morning after I brought this coat from the taylor's, the prisoner came in, and saw the coat, and said she liked it, because it was not made in a flashy manner; my window was broke, and three panes of glass broke, and the frame broke so as to let any person through.</p>

<p>I am an officer; I had a search warrant, and went to the house of Mr. Madden, an old clothes man in Rosemary-lane, and there I found this coat; it has been in my possession ever since.</p>
<p>The man that brought me the coat is an acquaintance of Mrs. Jones, the prosecutor's wife, she sent him in one night when I was very busy, for fear I should see him, with five pair of silk stockings; on the 14th of March, after Mrs. Jones went out, they were drinking all day, on the Wednesday, he asked me to go and make him a little money on that coat; he went to the Magpye, and bid me ask twelve shillings, and that he lent half guinea; and I gave him the half-guinea and the duplicate;
