Robbery and reward.
Whereas on Friday the 26th instant between the hours of 10 and 11 o'clock at night, the house of Martha Coulter of Cavanamore, in the County of Louth, was broken open and robbed of 15 guineas, and several articles of plate, viz. 6 tablespoons, 5 teaspoons, a tray, a pair of salts, parish of sugar tongs, a punch ladle, and a pair of shoe buckles, most of them marked J. M. B.
Now we whose names are here unto subscribed to promise to pay the several sums to our names annexed to any person or persons who shall in the space of six months from the date hereof, discover on and prosecute to conviction, the person or persons concerned in said robbery; and if any of the persons concerned shall make a discovery so that his or their accomplices may be prosecuted to conviction, they will not only be entitled to the reward, but application shall be made for his Majesty's most gracious pardon. – 20th August, 1791.
