Reward for apprehension of John Stewart

On the evening of Wednesday the 16th instant, a drawer in the house of Peter Small, weaver at Nether Candacraig, in the parish of Crathie, was forced open, while he and his wife were from home, and a Pocket Book stolen therefrom, containing Bank Notes and Bills to the amount of between £50 and £60 sterling.  It is suspected that the theft has been perpetrated by a man of the name of John Stewart, who has been in Small's employment, as a weaver, since Martinmas last, and who left his house that evening, and has not since been heard of.  A reward of 10L has been offered for his apprehension.
