1429. JOHN TRAPP was again indicted for that he, being employed by and under the Post Office in sorting letters and packets brought to the said Post Office in London , a certain letter sent from Halifax, to be delivered to Thomas Fuller , containing one 50 l. and one 40 l. Bank notes, came to his custody and possession whilst so employed, and that he feloniously did secrete and steal the said letter, containing the said notes , the property of Fenton Thomas Lambert .

EIGHT OTHER COUNTS, the same, only varying the manner of laying the charge.

MR. GURNEY (on behalf of the prosecution). My Lords, in this case, with your permission, I shall offer no evidence, the prisoner having pleaded guilty to the minor charge, and on account of particular circumstances we think ourselves justified in abandoning this capital charge.

NOT GUILTY .

London Jury, before Mr. Justice Park.
