Kentish Gazette - Wednesday 01 December 1773
Extract of a Letter from Chatham, Nov. 29.
"Friday Mr. Whiting, a Master Baker, of Brompton near this town, was going on horseback to Milton to pay a sum of money to his Miller; when he was attacked by four highwaymen genteelly dressed and well mounted, a little beyond Newington, who robbed him of thirty-seven guineas and a thirty-six-shilling-piece. The villains got clear off with their booty."
