Offence: Theft > simple larceny
HENRY KING was indicted for stealing, on the 29th of January, 1 ham, value 6s., the goods of John James Strother and another.
GEORGE MORRIS. On the 29th of January, I saw the prisoner at the prosecutor’s shop, in Tabernacle-walk - a man took a ham off a nail, and gave it to the prisoner, who was at his side; the prisoner put it in his apron and went off - I ran after him, and, just as I overtook him, he dropped it - I had not lost sight of him.
JOHN JAMES STROTHER. I have one partner - this ham is ours; but I was out when it was taken.
Prisoner’s Defence. A young man took it down, and gave it to me.
GUILTY. Aged 14. - Transported for Seven Years.
1/9/1839: Unclaimed letter at the Sydney General Post Office.
