Alexander Bower, Fordyce

Upon Saturday the 8th curt. a vagrant calling himself Alex. Bower, a native of the parish of Fordyce, was apprehended at Huntly by the constables, and brought before the Justices there, charged with theft; and the same being clearly proven, they sentenced him to be confined in Bridewell (which seems to him to be a place of amusement, he having been there twice before) for the space of twelve months, therein to be kept at hard labour.
