1122. MARGARET WALL was indicted for stealing, on the 10th of August , one watch, value 3 l., and one handkerchief, value 1 s., the goods of Joseph Drury , from his person .

JOSEPH DRURY . I am a copper-plate printer , and live in Whalebone-court, Coleman-street. On the 10th of August,

about ten o'clock at night, I met the prisoner, she asked me to go home with her, I said I had no money. She said she could pawn my watch in the morning. I went, she put out the light, took my watch from under my head, and went away. A man and woman came up, and said if I did not leave the house he would give me in charge. I went out, saw her running, and told the watchman, who took her. I was sober.

RICHARD PLUNKET . The prisoner was brought to the watch-house. I found nothing on her. I think the prosecutor was intoxicated, he had been brought to the watch-house two nights before drunk, and charged me with robbing him of a 1 l. note.
