And, on Wednesday last, Mr James Stables, a wealthy Cloth maker of Horsforth, having been at Bradford to receive some Money, was in his Way home from thence, stopped in the Hollow a little about Farsley Lane End upon Bradford Moor, between Six & Seven in the Evening, by a single Footpad, who with a Hedge Stake threatened to knock his Brains out if he did not deliver his Money: but not being ready in complying with his Demand, the Villain slipped his Hand in Mr Stables’ Pocket, & took out thence all the Money he found which was Fourteenpence Half-penny; & at the same time letting go the Reins of the Bridle, Mr Stables rode off, & thereby saved the rest of his Money, which luckily was in the contrary Breeches Pocket.
