"On Monday last, it being Plough Monday as well as our fair, the inhabitants were not a little annoyed by a more than ordainary number of drunken and worthless characters, under the guise of ploughboys from the neighbouring villages. Two of the fellows went into the house of a poor old woman named Tindale (whose mother was lying in a helpless, if not hopeless state), in Northgate, and whilst one held the distressed creature in conversation, a second stole a bible (a sort of heirloom in the family), and marched off with it: the thieves have not been discovered."
