"Edward Cosnett [23], gardener, was charged with having stolen 1s. 0½d., on July 18th, at Pershore, the money of Samuel Cosnett. Mr. P. Evans prosecuted. On the day mentioned the prisoner was drinking with some other men in the back yard of the Gardeners' Arms, Pershore. The landlady's daughter, who had been supplying them with drink, put 1s. 0½d. in the kitchen window. When she came back, after a short absence, it was gone. She went into the yard, when the prisoner denied having seen the money. He offered to lend another man a shilling. When accused by a person named Baylis, he struck him in the face. There had been several previous convictions, and the prisoner was under police supervision at the time the offence was committed. He was sentenced to two years' imprisonment, with seven years' subsequent police supervision."
