PRISCILLA DYER . I am servant to Mr. Jupp, who lives in Glass-house-street, Regent-circus. On Saturday, the 20th of Feb., I paid the prisoner 3s. for bread for Mr. Lackington.

ELIZABETH WINSLADE . I am servant to Mr. Lloyd, of Regent-street; Mr. Townley lives in the same house. On the 20th of Feb. I saw the prisoner bring three quarterns of bread—Mr. Townley paid him 2s. 6d. for it—he gave some halfpence in change.

SAMUEL STEER . My wife paid the prisoner 1s. on the 20th of Feb., for biscuits supplied by the prosecutor.

HENRY LACKINGTON . I am a baker. The prisoner was in my employ—he never accounted to me for either of these sums of money—he was employed to receive bills for me, and had been for a forthnight—he had 5s. a week, his butter, bread, and sugar, and his lodging.

Prisoner. I told him what I had done with it—I was badly off for shoes, and while I was round with the bread, my shoes came to pieces—I was obliged to buy some before I could go round to the customes. Witness. On the Sunday morning he said he had received this money, but had not got it to pay me—he had spent it—he said he bought his shoes—but a day or two before that he was 6s. short in his money—there was 5s. due to him for his week's wages that day, and he took 7s. 3d.
