REFUSING TO BILLET SOLDIERS
At the Borough Police Court on Saturday, Thomas Mason,
landlord of the Windsor Castle, Egan-street, was summoned
for refusing to billet two men and horses belonging to the
12th Battery of the Royal Artillery, when ordered to do so
by Major Little - Chief Constable.

The Battery came into town on the 22nd August, and two
 men were sent to the defendant's house, but his wife refused
to accommodate them. As that was the first offence of its kind
in Preston he did not press for a heavy penalty.

The defendant was not in the house at the time or the soldiers 
would have been billeted The case was withdrawn on the 
defendant promising to pay the costs of the case.
