[Jer. Main, a tailor, was found not guilty of violet theft on 11 September 1754]

 

Mary Foster: On the 17th of August last, between 6 and 7 o'clock in the morning, I was on the marsh wall, by the mill, at Poplar, walking along I was alone.

[…]

 

There are no houses, it is an open field. I had two calicoe curtains in my hand belonging to Mr. Crush; the prisoner [Jer. Main] met me and stopped me.[…]  He took me in his arms, and carried me into the rushes, betwixt the river Thames and the bank, without saying another word to me; there he used me in a very indecent manner [and stole my belongings]. 

[…]

 

Q. from the prisoner: Did I not ask you to go in at the first publick house to drink? [after the alleged attack]

 

Foster. He asked me to go in at several alehouses, but I would not. I said, I would go to the farthest end of the street before I would drink.

 

Q. How long is the street?

 

Foster. It is a pretty long street. He came singing and whistling along the street.
