JOHN BARNEY DAY . I am agent to Mr. Thomas Wade- he has three houses in Fox-court, St. Sepulchre . On the 20th of March I met the prisoner carrying these eight sashes and two doors, which had been fixed in Mr. Wade’s houses; I asked what he was going to do with them - he said to take them to Barbican, and two persons had employed him to carry them there, but he did not know who - I said I should detain the sashes; I found on him a chisel, which the officer compared with the marks on the frame, and it fitted them exactly; these are the articles.

STEPHEN LLOYD . I am an officer. I took the prisoner- I fitted this chisel to the marks on the frame and door posts.

Prisoner’s Defence. I was employed to carry them.

GUILTY . Aged 39. - Transported for Seven Years .
