1011. THOMAS RICHARD POPPY was indicted for embezzlement .

MR. GEORGE BALLARD . I am in partnership with Messrs. Samuel Dawes and Charles Yorke - the prisoner was in our employ. I sent a Bill of Exchange for 2 l. 5 s., from Scotland, to our house in King-street, Cheapside, in a parcel directed to the firm.

Mr. CHARLES YORK . This bill was remitted to us from Scotland; but I cannot be certain that I ever saw it. I remember it on account of it being for so trifling an amount.

JAMES GILBERT . I am a clerk in the Bank. I find by our books that this bill was presented on the 5th of April, and paid by a cash order upon Messrs. Fuller's - it has the receipt of T. R. Poppy, No. 1, King-street, on it.

COURT. There is no proof of his receiving this on account of his employers.
