Taken from the Old Bailey Records

640 James Henry Pascoe was indicted for stealing on the 30th March. 1 Handkerchief value 3s, the goods of William Harris.

WILLIAM HARRIS I am a journeyman baker and live in Henry Street,Cumberland Market. I was going along the New Road, about half-past eight o’clock-I lost a handkerchief-it had my initials on it.

FRANCIS KEYS. I am ab officer of Marylebone-on the following Monday I saw the prisoner -I followed him to a house at Short’s-Gardens-I put my hand to his pocket and said.“What have you got there” he said ,“A dirty shirt,and I will show it to you-he put his hand in his pocket,and pulled out these four handkerchief’s and threw them through the window into the yard in a moment -I seized him by the collar, and asked some men who were at work in the yard to give me the handkerchiefs, but they took no notice of it-the prisoner then began to make some resistance)I took out my staff and said I was an officer,and if he made any resistance.I would make a hols in him- I then called to the men again to give me the handkerchiefs, but one of them took them up and threw them into a hole which they were digging-I said “Is there not one honest man among you ?- mind I know you all, and if you do not give them to me- I will have you up”- at last one man took them out,and another man gave them to me-I then brought the prisoner out-he made great resistance in the street and some women pulled my arm and some men ill used me-one of them bit my thumb,and I was very ill used-if a policeman had not come up, I must have lost the prisoner.
