[Elizabeth Sturgess and Margaret Jones were found guilty on 18 October 1775 of grand larceny] 

 

Thomas Watkins: I am a watchman in St. Dunstan's parish; at half an hour past twelve at night, I saw the prosecutor with the prisoner about three yards out of the city, in Little Shire-lane; the prosecutor charged the prisoner with robbing him.

[…]

 

[Elizabeth Sturgess] I am not guilty at all; I was going through Temple Bar with the other prisoner, Jones; she asked me to drink with her; we met the prosecutor with two women in white cloaks, who were singing to him; he came up to us, and unbuttoned his breeches, and the money fell out of his pocket; he said, we should not stoop to pick it up; the watchman came by, and they picked up three guineas; then he said, he had lost half a guinea more, and he stooped, and picked that up.
