J. THOMPSON, Moulders' Arms
Turk's Head Yard.
The licence was objected to for allowing prostitutes in 
his house. P.S. Keefe said he had visited the house and
found prostitutes along with soldiers there. He did not 
summon them. P.C. Williams said he had been there
several times previous and had found prostitutes, but
they were perfectly quiet.
The licence was granted.
