<p>Cross-examined by MR. PHILLIPS. Q. Catherine Roach made no hesitation at producing the key of the parlour? A. No, she opened the door herself - these glasses were found in a deal-box, like a servant's box - whether Catherine Roach had ever opened it I don't know - I recollect during the time Mary Roach lived with me, that a party of gentlemen were at my house one night, who got tipsy, and broke the glasses; but they were mostly ale glasses; there might be some like these; I did not hear Mary say, that as the gentlemen had paid for all the glasses, she was entitled to those which were left whole as her perquisite - she might have taken more valuable things than these - I don't wish to hurt her, but I was forced to prosecute.</p>
