I live with Mr.Gibson,No.35,in Oxford road,a linen draper,I was in the shop,about five in the evening of the 9th of July alone,when the two prisoners came in,between five and six in the evening,I am certain to them,I never saw them before,Marshall had bought a gown before,and left some money on it,and she came to take it away,and she said she had lost a gown of Ryan’s,and she must buy another,they they asked to look at some more prints,and I took down a great many,they were very difficult,I watched them,and at last they asked for six yards of one of the prints which I cut,and it came to 15s,and they had only 18d.to pay in part,then they asked me to look at some very elegant muslins,which I thought odd,as they had no money,I shewed her one,and asked her 34s,she offered me a guinea,I rolled up the muslins,and put them away,they went out of the shop,and were gone about one hundred and twenty yards,I followed them and desired them to come back,which they did,and coming back I found the piece of linen under Marshall’s foot,they were going,I detained them,there was no customers in the shop when they came in or when they went out.(Deposed to by the private mark.)
