About this Item

188 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.4in.Owing to the peculiar character of its passengers, the coach was found to be carrying practically nothing in the way of luggage, except my own trunk and the one large hamper already mentioned, which had been pushed into the boot for conveyance to Castlefield, probably to relieve the mail, which was sure to be heavily laden at this time of the year. From the gruff remarks of the would-be plunderers, it was evident that they were disappointed. It was probably within the knowledge of most of them that a stage coach sometimes carried a valuable cargo; in fact, not more than two years after the date of my story a bank parcel containing notes and gold to the value of 5, 700 was stolen from a coach running between Glasgow and Edinburgh, the thieves in this instance travelling as inside passengers, and cutting a hole with brace bit and saw through the body of the coach into the boot, from which the plunder was then extracted. However, a basket of provisions was, in a way, a valuable find; for the question of food was likely to become a serious problem before the members of the gang regained their full freedom. Rodwood therefore told off two of his followers to carry the basket, refused to allow the men to drink the other bottle of wine, and bade one of the party unhang the game from the lamp iron and carry it slung over his shoulder.
