Q. Can you say from your own knowledge that there was a table cloth missing - A. Yes. In consequence of which I went to Donaldson the officer; he found a duplicate on her person; we took her up on Sunday morning; the officer has got the duplicate. It directed me to Mr. Turner in Brydges street.

On Sunday the 2nd of October, I took her in custody and searched her; in her right hand pocket I found this duplicate of a table cloth, pawned on the 1st of October, for three shillings; I went to Mr. Turner’s on that Sunday morning; he shewed me the table cloth. The prisoner said she had the duplicate of a woman of the name of Turner, at the King’s Arms in Oxford road; she told me the woman had gone down to Chatham.
