REV. JAMES SINCLAIR MOORE. I am a clerk in Holy Orders residing at St. John's Vicarage, Oxford Road, Kilburn—on December 4th I went to Bath leaving my house in charge of Edith Slater, a nurse in our service—on the 5th I received information by telegram and came home—I found a panel had been cut out from my scullery door at the back of the house opening on to a back-yard—an arm could be put through the hole so made, and the key turned and the lower bolt pulled back—I missed £40 worth of property, silver salver and spoons, and plated goods, a bag, some money and a cheque—the salver was presented to me by the St. George's Church, Great Yarmouth, two years ago; it had my family crett, an inscription with my name, and the Yarmouth Arms—it has not been recovered—this silver-plated coffee pot, inkstand, paper-knife, and candle-sticks are my property.
