On the 27th or 28th of January, I missed the plate, spoons and different articles. I sent to the Mansion House, to Mr. Nalder, for him or one of his men to come and look after my property. Mr. Cartwright came. I told him what I had lost. I gave him a spoon, the same make as the others, with my name upon them.</p>
<p>Q. How many spoons did you lose - A. Five, and three silver punch-ladles, breeches, and all the different articles in the indictment. The breeches and waistcoat I lost on the 27th.</p>

Mr. Nalder being poorly, I went to Mr. Jasper's. He took me into his bed-room; he shewed me the cupboard from where he had lost the plate; he told me five spoons and three silver punch-ladles. He gave me this. I went to Mr. Baxter's, Snow-hill, and there I found five spoons and three punch-ladles, pledged.</p>
<p>Q. Did you find any thing else there - A. Not

The prisoner pawned those five spoons on the 23d of January. I asked him who he brought them from. He said, a Mr. Jones, a housekeeper in Fleet-lane; he was not his father; he lived in the same house with him, and Mr. Jones gave him these things to pledge. On the 27th, he pawned a punch-ladle for eight shillings.</p>
