On Friday morning Samuel Creedy and William Harriman were publicly whipped a distance of 150 yards, tied to a cart's tail, in the Waterloo-road, Lambeth, pursuant to their sentence at the last Surrey sessions. The delinquents were convicted of stealing a coat out of a gentleman's chaise, and were well known as part of a gang called the Forty Thieves. Harriman bore his punishment with great firmness, but Creedy shouted most vociferously. They were afterwards taken into the Duke of Sussex public-house, where their backs were rubbed with brandy, and they were conveyed back to Brixton.
