Details: 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
