“It is recorded that Brown’s lawyer call fifteen witnesses, who all gave him a good character and Brown was found not guilty. On the same day, Thomas Sutherland was indicted for feloniously stealing one hundred and fifty-two books that were the property of Rudolph Ackerman. ‘To this indictment the prisoner pleaded guilty, was fined 1 s. and discharged.’
