Mr. Wintle: I bought these things of Mr. Yowell. Mr. Field does business for me in this way. I took them to be of his work. I carried them to him, and he owned them directly.
William Cadwallider: I took 15 spung boxes in the shape of eggs, barrels, and the like, of the prisoner at the bar, in pawn. I kept them the time we agreed. Then I sold them to Samuel Yowell a Jew.
