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

escape through mistaken lenity, but punished with the utmost rigor to be an
example to others.
