William Holdsworth, cook at the General Hospital charged with purloining sugar from the general hospital. John Davenport states - I am night watch man at the general hospital. About a fortnight ago I was informed that the prisoner was in the habit of purloining sugar from the hospital, in consequence of which I watched him. Last Thursday night I saw him take away about two pounds and a half. I reported it to the overseer. Robert Cussan, states - I am overseer at the general hospital. A few days since the last witness informed me he suspected that the prisoner was in the habit of purloining the sugar entrusted to his care. I had a watch upon him. This morning the watch man informed me if I would examine the shelf in the kitchen, I should find sugar there. I did so and found the two parcels of sugar now before the Court. The prisoner is the hospital cook. The sugar for breakfast had not been delivered to him at the time. The prisoner receives sugar for the patients twice a day. I have been told by the watchman that the prisoner had taken away sugar twice during this week. The prisoner in his defence states that he got the sugar found on the shelf from Barbara Beckett but on a comparison of it with some produced from her house it appeared of a different quality. William Holdsworth sentenced to 50 lashes

Joseph Donnolly, per ship Larkins, in government service, charged with stealing a sheet, the property of the Crown. Henry Kenny, Overseer at the General Hospital states - On the 1st September, I missed a sheet belonging to the hospital. Donnolly is a wardsman and I suspected him of taking it, as only he and I have anything to do with those articles at the Hospital. I acquainted Doctor Brooks of the suspicion I entertained, and he directed the Chief constable to cause a search to b made. I accompanied two constables on that duty and at the house of Mrs. Beckett, the sheet now before the court was found on her bed. I cannot swear positively to the sheet but to the best of my belief it is the sheet that was stolen from the hospital. It is of the same description n as those there. Constable William Turvey, states - I was directed this morning by the chief constable to search for a sheet stolen from the General Hospital. On a bed in the house of Mrs. Beckett I found the sheet now before the court. She stated it to be her property. Barbara Beckett called states - I bought the linen with other of a similar description from Mr. Thew between two and three years ago, some I made into sheets and part for the cover of a sofa. Mr. Jacob Newton knows I purchased a quantity of linen from Mr. Thew. Mr. Jacob Newton states - I remember my uncle Mr Thew having several pieces of linen of the same description as the sheet now before the court, and I know that about two years ago he sold some of it to Mrs. Styles (Now Beckett) my impression is that the sheet now before the court if part of it. Joseph Donnolly acquitted of the charge
