Letitia Pickers, in service of Mr. John Smith charged with purloining two loaves of bread from her masters bake house. George Furby, adopted son of Mr. Smith states - As I was going across my father s yard on Thursday morning last, I saw the prisoner going towards the kitchen with two loaves in her apron. I could just see the corners of them; I thought at first that she had got them from the baker, but I afterwards ascertained that he had left the bake house some time before I saw her with the bread. Thomas Williams states - I am Mr. Smith s baker. I did not gie the prisoner any loaves on Thursday morning last, nor did I desire any persons to give her any. She asked me for a loaf to take to the hospital. I made her no answer. The loaves before the court are Mr. Smiths. They are of my baking. They are of the value of 10d. To a question from the prisoner - I did not say she might have two loaves if she liked. Mr. John Smith states - The prisoner has lived in my family three months during which time her conduct has been very irregular. She is frequently insolent to my wife and this morning as she passed my door in the custody of a constable, she said she hoped to see all my children begging their bread in the streets before this day twelve months. The prisoner states - I wanted some bread for a person in the hospital and the baker told me to take it. Sentenced to 3rd Class Factory for three months
