  He gave evidence at the Central Criminal Court on 10 June 1850, when William Holmes was found not guilty of "stealing 1 lamb, value 1l. 5s.; the goods of Abraham Leahair"

I am a butcher of Enfield — on 20th May there were thirty-five sheep and lambs in a field belonging to my father — they were all safe at half-past seven — about a quarter-past eleven I received information, went to the field, and found the prisoner in custody of Bellamy and Goddard — he said, "Do forgive me; poverty caused me to do it; I am starving" — there was nobody else to have done it.
