, slave of Col. Sizer
, was arrested for being without a pass at night, and on suspicion of stealing a looking-glass

Albert, slave of Cosby
, was sent down under similar sentence for stealing a sword and a carpet-bag
, and committed to jail for going at large.
John, slave of John Baker
, stole $4.50 from a fellow-servant named CÆsar, and was punished accordingly.
