Aged 18.—Recommended to mercy.— Confined Six Months.

GAYNOR OWEN. I am a milliner, in partnership with my sister, and live in the house of William Read, in the parish of St. James' Westminster—Trower was errand-boy there. On Friday night, 21st April, I missed my cash-book with a bill of exchange for 76l., nine sovereigns, some half-sovereigns, some silver, and two old crowns in it—it was safe on the drawing-room table the night before—this is it(Produced)—the money has been found, expect a shilling or so.

ROBERT CHIGLEY (policeman.) I spoke to Tower, and then went into a value at Mr. Read's, and found a bill of exchange, a pocket-book, and two crowns—I took Powis, and told him that I wanted that money—he said "What money?"—I said, "The money Trower gave you"—he said, "He gave it to me to mind," and gave me 9l. 14s. 6d.


Before Mr. Baron Alderson.
