Details: Edward Finn, per ship Norfolk, assigned to Gregory Blaxland, charged with absenting himself from his master s service and neglect of work. Mr. George Blaxland states - This morning at nine, I was at my father s salt works at which time the prisoner was absent. I had cautioned him as well as the other persons employed there not on any pretence to leave the works without the leave of the overseer or myself. I consider Finn upon this occasion to have been absent about an hour. I was at the works more than 3/4 of an hour, all of which time he was absent. The general conduct of the prisoner is bad, he has stated to me that he would take 50 lashes to fight with a fellow prisoner who had been complaining of him. Richard Brown, overseer at Mr. Blaxland s salt works states - Last night when the prisoner came home to the works it was after 9 o clock, soon after which one of the labourers came to me to complain of ill-usage from him, and that he was afraid to remain in the same hut with him. The prisoner upon this occasion had been away without either the leave of Mr. G. Blaxland or myself, since three o clock in the afternoon. Exclusive of this morning it is the first time of his absenting himself without leave with one exception, but on that occasion he went home instantly on my following him into the town and pointing out to him the impropriety of his conduct. He has been at the salt works three months. I have no fault to find with his general conduct. The prisoner states - I had no intention to neglect my duty; I met a friend in the town who treated me to some liquor which was the cause of my remaining so late; I had leave once. Edward Finn sentenced to 25 lashes
