James Plowman was charged with stealing a short from Private Edward Odgers. Convicts Amelia Levy and Elizabeth Fowles gave evidence that they had been offered a shirt to spend the night with Plowman and Corporal John Wixstead. Wixstead rejected the accusation, but even so was reduced in rank and Private William Goodall was promoted corporal in his stead.
