      Tuesday, September 18, 1781

      Monday evening three decent looking women went into the shop of Mrs.
      Martin, linen draper, Abbey-street, and while two kept the people of the
      shop employed, the other found means to carry off one piece of cambrick and
      two of muslin. - One piece of the latter in handkerchiefs. It is to wished
      that some of those pests of society were detected, and not suffered to
      escape through mistaken lenity, but punished with the utmost rigor to be an
      example to others.
