These are all parts of the same paper,
which reads -
"And we adjudge
the said Charles Hamer for his said Offence to forfeit and pay the Sum
of Two shillings and six pence...
to be paid and applied according to
Law, and also to pay to Thomas Flye who prosecuteth the Sum of Thirteen
shillings and six pence for his Costs in this behalf, and if the said
several Sums be not paid forthwith...
we adjudge the said Charles Hamer
to be imprisoned in the House of Correction at Brecon in the said County
for the space of Fourteen days unless the said several Sums and the Costs
and Charges of conveying the said Charles Hamer to the said House of Correction
shall be sooner paid".
man who tried to sell rotten meat was fined
two shillings and sixpence with thirteen shillings and sixpence costs
for Thomas Flye, who was the local Police Sergeant.
If he didn't pay up straight away he was to be sent to prison
for fourteen days - but he probably did ! He might have been
worried about how fresh the meat was in prison.
