Three boys were committed to the House of Correction 
to take their trials at the Sessions, on two charges of
felony. The prisoners were in the habit of begging, and 
had gone into the house of Edward Fowler, the 'Horse
and Farrier', and called for a glass of ale, for which one
of them immediately paid. Mrs. Fowler received the money, 
dropped it into the drawer, and went down the cellar steps 
to draw the ale. During her absence they carried off the
drawer and its contents.
