334. MARY VILLERS was indicted for stealing, on the 17th of December , two blankets, value 4 s., the goods of Mary May , in a lodging-room .

MARY MAY . I live in Dog-row, Bethnal-green . On the 17th of December, the prisoner hired a furnished apartment of me, on the second floor, at 4 s. a-week. A man who she called her husband was with her. She said she came from the country; they stopped in the room about three hours, then both came down and went out; my niece ran up to the room. I ran out and overtook the prisoner - she had a large cloak on which covered her. I followed her some distance, and saw her drop the blankets. I picked them up and gave her in charge; I went into the room and missed the blankets, which had been given her to make the bed herself. There is no mark on them, but I have no doubt of their being mine.

M. A. SPENCER. I am Mrs. May's niece. I went into the room, and missed the blankets, and ran out, the prisoner appeared bulky when she went out.

GEORGE SAVERY . I am an officer. I took her in charge with the blankets.

(Property produced and sworn to.)

GUILTY . Aged 49.

Confined Three Months .
