1266. ELIZABETH ANDREWS was indicted for stealing, on the 28th of August , a seal, value 15 s., and a veil, value 5 s. , the goods of John Marsden .

MARY MARSDEN . I am the wife of John Marsden ; we live in Great Warner-street ; I hired the prisoner to nurse for a few days. On the 28th of August I missed the property. The seal was affixed to a watch which hung over the fire-place; the veil was in the drawer not locked. I found it in pawn next day; I told her she had taken them she said if I would allow her to go, she would get them for me. I have not found the seal.

GEORGE HARVEY . I am servant to a pawnbroker, and live in Cross Turnmill-street; I have a veil, which I saw the prisoner pawn. Another girl was with her.

(Property produced and sworn to.)

THOMAS MARKHAM . I took her in charge; she said she had pawned the veil, and given the seal to George Mumford , who has absconded.

GUILTY. Aged 16.
