John Holtam, or Holtham , and John Bennet , Indicted for stealing a grey Mare, price 5 l. of the Goods of one W. Saunders . Holtam is a Person suspected for a High-way man, having been in some Country-Goal before, and upon Removal by a Habeas Corpus, made his Escape: he pretends himself to have lived last at the City of Warwick, and that he was a Gentleman bred, (being indeed a likely Man to see to.) The Proof as to the Mare was so very plain, that both Holtam and Bennet were found Guilty .
