John Hiron . On the 27th of this Month I lost some Leaden Pipe from my Shop in New-Ormond-Street ; this is the Lead.

John Goslick . I am a Watchman at the Conduit at Snow-Hill (they call it Lamb's Conduit:) the Prisoner was coming along with some Lead, I examined him, and he said he had the Lead from Mr Hiron's, and that he was going over the Bridge with it; I suspected it was stole; said I, instead of going over the Bridge you shall go to the Watch-House. The Prisoner passed by me twice, and that made me suspect him. Guilty .

[Transportation. See summary.]
