Evidence:
Witness statement in trial for theft: Thomas James Francis: 'On the morning of the 17th of April, 1834, I saw three man in conversation several times, as I passed, getting my work in from the binders, nearly facing Boston-street—when I returned the second time the three men divided—the one who was convicted was leaning over the pales—he had a parcel in his hand—the other two were in a public-house, next door to Bell's—I saw one of them looking through the window, and the other reading a newspaper—that was the prisoner—I passed him about four times, as I was going to different binders with my work—I first saw him about half-past nine o'clock—I was backwards and forwards, passing and re-passing, for about an hour and a quarter, he was looking through the glass, the last time I saw him he was standing with his back to the table'
