This is a shortened version of the trial:

HENRIETTA LETHULIER was indicted for stealing, on the 20th of August , 22 sovereigns, the monies of Robert Tomlinson , from his person ; and JAMES BRYAN was indicted for that he, well knowing the said felony was committed, did receive, harbour, conceal, and maintain her .

GEORGE PHILLIPS . I am an officer. I received information - I searched Lethulier’s sister, and found six sovereigns on her.
SELINA LETHULIER . I am the prisoner’s sister. She was in the watch-house on Sunday for something, and when she came out on Monday, she gave me the six sovereigns to take care of for her - Bryan was there at the time, getting his dinner.
FREDERICK SMITH . I am a shoemaker. The prisoners each ordered a pair of shoes of me on the Monday - I was to get them done that night; they paid me 10s. 6d. on them.
MICHAEL WHEELER . I am a cabinet-maker. The prisoners were indebted to me; on Sunday, the 21st, Lithulier paid me a sovereign.
Lethulier’s Defence. A man told Easterbrook, if he would come and make the most of this case he would give him a new suit of clothes a pair of boots, and stockings - my sister heard it.
