Other Events in Swallow Gardens

Post by Karen on Tue 6 Sep 2011 - 23:22


On Wednesday, Silus Brooks was re-examined on a charge of robbing his employer, Mr. Colbatch, of the Minories, of about forty pounds weight of amber. The prisoner was in the employ of Mr. Colbatch, as a porter; the amber in question was missed from a cask, and it was at length traced to a Mr. Nathanson, of Mansel-street, Goodman's-fields, and in consequence of some suspicions, the prisoner was apprehended. After he was committed to gaol, he voluntarily sent a written paper to the prosecutor, wherein he admitted that he had, from time to time, robbed his master of this amber, which he had disposed of to a man named Barney, in Swallow-gardens, some for two shillings, and some for one shilling and three half-pence per pound, and that Barney knew he had stolen it from his master. Nathanson admitted purchasing the amber of Barney at seven shillings per pound, which he considered a fair price for it. It was stated that the amber was worth fifteen shillings per pound. Barney had absconded. The prisoner was committed for trial.
