ELIZA BRADBURY . I am the wife of John Bradbury. We live in Gough-street, Gray's-inn-lane . The prisoner came to lodge with us on the 26th of January, and left on the 2d of February; a man lived with her as her husband all the time; she said he was clerk to an engraver; they left without paying their rent, and I have not seen the man since; I had my suspicions as she took the key - I opened the door with another key, in three or four hours, and the sheets, pillows, bolster, and blanket were gone; I found the pillow in pawn, last week, and am certain it is mine.
JOHN MARTIN HAIGH . I am servant to Mr. Brown, a pawnbroker, of Fetter-lane. On the 29th of January the prisoner pawned this pillow, in the name of Ann Clark - I have frequently seen her before.(Property produced and sworn to.)
The prisoner pleaded distress.
GUILTY . Aged 22.
Confined One Week .
