722. MARY ANN HARRIS was indicted for stealing, on the 23rd of March , 3 sovereigns, the monies of John Hodge , from his person .

JOHN HODGE . I am a stone-mason . I fell in with the prisoner between ten and eleven o'clock at night, on the 23rd of March, in Buckeridge-street, St. Giles' - I think I spoke to her first; I was not tipsy - I went with her to a house opposite, to a public-house in which I had been - we were shown into a room; I was not with her more than half an hour - I had nothing to do with her; I had not given her any thing, nor promised her any thing - I had treated her with some ale about an hour before; I then missed three sovereigns and some silver, which I had felt safe when I was going up the stairs to the room; she had been sitting close to me on my right-hand side - I can swear to one of the sovereigns; I had had it some time - I went to the station, and gave information.

JAMES WILLIAM ALLUM (Police-constable F 81). The prisoner was brought to the station - I found two sovereigns on her.

JOHN HODGE . I know one of my sovereigns by a bruise on the edge of it; this is not it - it is not the one I saw.
