stopped by two footpads

On Saturday morning last, betwixt one and two in the morning, the Leeds coach was stopped a little beyond the Turnpike on the London road from hence, by two footpads, who took from the passengers about 30s. — One of the passengers (a reduced Serjeant, recommended to the Board) who gave ’em 5s. which they genteelly returned, gave the coachman half a crown, and wished ’em a good journey. They are suspected to be two young fellows of Nottingham, who lately robbed a gentlemen’s servant upon the forest, and are supposed to be gone forward for London.
