Witness statement in trial for stealing: John Jackson: "I came up by coach, I got down at the White Horse Cellar in Piccadilly, I was very much benumbed with cold. I drank several glasses of rum on the road to keep out the cold, then I went and had a pint of beer, and read the newspaper, then I had another."
