Samuel Johnson

Newspaper Articles
“At the Police Court, yesterday, Herbert Mann, carter, of Brockmoor, was charged with embezzling, 15s,, the property of his employer, William Foley, mineral-water manufacturer, of the Round of Beef Inn, Cradley Heath, on the 25th ult.—Mr. Waldron appeared to prosecute. It appeared that on the day named prisoner took thirty dozen bottles of mineral waters out in the morning, and sold twenty dozen, but failed to account for the same. Joseph Dunn, of the Colliers' Arms, was called, and stated that on the day named the prisoner charged him for two dozen beers, and only left one dozen. Prisoner was committed to gaol for one month, with hard labour.”
