Details: William Eastwood assigned to Alexander Walker Scott, charged with neglect of duty and absenting himself. Also with possessing and making away with a letter. Mr. John Brunker testified......About a fortnight since I sent the prisoner to relieve John Carter who was in charge of a quantity of sawed timber at the opposite side of the water. On Saturday week last the timber having been removed, I ordered the prisoner to return to the Island and bring the things that were in his charge with him. On his landing at the Island I Observed that he had not brought the iron pot. I enquired what he had done with it. He replied that it had been stolen and last Friday I started him from the Island giving him a pass to remain in force until ten oclock that morning and no longer. Also a letter directed to A.W. Scott Esq., at Newcastle, the letter was never delivered. He did not arrive in Newcastle until brought in by James Rendell, assigned servant to A.W. Scott on the following morning....John Carter assigned to A.W. Scott testified...Says when the prisoner came to take charge of the timber in my place I delivered over to him all the things I had belonging to my master amongst which was an iron pot and a keg with the timber. I have never seen the pot since.....A.W. Scott testified....I have heard my overseer s evidence in which he states he delivered to the prisoner a sealed letter which letter I never received which letter he states was addressed to me. Nor do I remember Mr. Brunker mentioning to me that he had delivered such a letter to the prisoner for me until this morning I have examined the pass now produced with which he was to have proceeded to my residence with the letter in question and consider that it has been defaced for the purpose of misleading constables and others. William Eastwood found Guilty of pilfering and making away with a letter. Sentenced to twelve months in irons
