[The prisoner John Bailey was found guilty of murder on 6 July 1737 and sentenced to death]

 

John Bailey, of the Tower of London, was indicted for assaulting  William Burton , with a drawn Sword made of Iron and Steel[…] by Reason of which, he languished, and languishingly lived, from the said 20th to the 21st of the said Month and then died.

 […] 

 John Waterman: The Night this happen'd I was in Bed in the Barracks, and after the Tattoo was gone by, the Deceased [Burton] as Serjeant of the Night, came in his Office, to call over the Rolls, in order to see who was absent […]

 

Richard Toombes . The Deceased and I had been out that Afternoon, drinking at a Friend's House: We came in about 10 o'Clock, and he did his Business and call'd over the Roll One Darby was absent, and the Prisoner said, he had leave to be absent. The Deceased said, he would return him, and the Quarrel began, as the first Witness has mention'd. After many Words, the Deceased put the Candle out, and went to call over the Roll in the other Barrack: When he had done, he returned to his own Barrack, and undrest himself and went to Bed. The Prisoner in his Room, still abused him, and the Deceased said, he would get up and lick him for abusing him: And accordingly, our Candle being out, he got up and fetch'd one from the next Barrack, and coming to the Prisoner's Door, he took hold of it and shook it; the Door was open'd, I know not how, nor by who; but when 'twas about a Foot and a half open, the Prisoner thrust out his Hand, with his drawn Sword, and stabb'd him immediately.[...]

 

Prisoner. When I was taken, that Man [Toombes] went dancing and singing all the Way before me, and said, he had an Opportunity now to be revenged: And he would swear his Soul to the Devil but I should be hanged.
