SUMMERS’S Defence. I was at home going to supper, I heard a bustle came out, and in five minutes Reynolds took me. Two of the men who did the robbery are in Clerkenwell now, and another is at the office to day.

EMANUEL’S Defence. I was coming down the street, about eleven o’clock at night, Lickfold said he wanted me for a watch in Brick-lane. I said I knew nothing about it. He knows very well, that I was not able to put one foot before the other, having been under the doctor’s hands for a fortnight, with the venereal disease.
