Details: James Spencer per ship Dunvegan Castle, assigned to Mr. Dangar, charged with improper conduct....Mr. John Button states - I am overseer to Mr. Dangar and about ten days ago I lent James Spencer a large blanket I believe belonging to Mr. Cann. Yesterday morning I gave him a blanket which I intended him to keep and took the former one from him and hung it on the cheese press and when I returned in the evening the blanket was gone. I asked the cook if he had taken it, he said he had not. I asked if he knew who had taken it and he said he believed Spencer had taken it. I asked the prisoner if he had taken it, he said he had. I told him to bring it to me, he said he would not. I went to his hut but could not find it. He gave me a great deal of abuse and said he would not have that blanket after I had been lending it about and said he would bring me to court today about it. And he refused to do light work about the place in consequence of having a slight rupture. He has been examined by Dr. Macredie who says he is quite able to do light work about the house. He never asked to do any hard work. The prisoner states in his defence that Mr. Button gave him the blanket which he considered as his own andYesterday morning I missed my blanket and went to look for it and found it hanging on the cheese press and took it away. I asked the cook if he knew who took it and he said no. Denies ever telling Mr. Button that he would not give him the blanket. Said that he never refused to do light work. The Bench find the prisoner guilty and sentence him to receive twenty five lashes.
