I was going for some milk, between six and seven o'clock in the afternoon, it was nearly dark. I saw Chatfield get on a step, and take the pillow - Allen stood waiting at the corner of Mitchell-street, two doors off; they both went down there together. I told Mrs. Lamb of it, and at night Mr. Lamb took one of them. I saw them at Worship-street next morning, and am sure of them.</p>
