Evidence:
'The following particulars relating to a poor woman named Amelia Roberts, who has hanged for robbing her master's house, are so instructive both to masters and servants... The facts stated were communicated by her to two of the ladies of the Newgate Association who visited her ... the death of Lady E.K. obliged her to seek a new service. At that time she said she enjoyed nothing so much as reading her Bible and attending the worship of God'
