Witness statement in trial for theft: Mary Ann Hatton: 'On Saturday, the 30th of June, between one and two o'clock in the afternoon, the prisoner Austin brought some things to my mistress's stall, and asked her to buy them—she said she did not want them—he brought them to me, and I bought two petticoats, four aprons, and four pairs of stockings of him for 95 ... I afterwards read something in the newspaper about the robbery, and went to the office, and gave up the things.'
