      The following comes from the online version of proceedings at the Old Bailey on Monday 25 April 1887:
      525. ELLEN KNIGHT (22) , Unlawfully uttering counterfeit coin.

      MESSRS. WILKINSON and BIRON Prosecuted; MR. FRITH Defended.

      CLARA MINTER . My father keeps a newspaper and tobacconist's shop at Church Street, Kensington - on a Tuesday evening towards the end of March, between 8 and 9 o'clock, the prisoner came in and asked for a Princess Novelette, price 1d., and gave me a half-crown - I gave her 2s. 5d. change, and took it to my father in the parlour, who tried it in the tester and gave it back to me, and I went after the prisoner and said "This is a bad half-crown you gave me" - she said "I am very sorry," and gave me back the change and the book - on 13th April I picked her out from a number of persons at Hammersmith Police-court.

      Cross-examined. I was not told by the police that the person who was suspected was tall, but my father read her description - five other women were placed with her - she was not the tallest of the five - the gaoler was there - she wore a black coat when she came to the shop, but when I picked her out she wore the dress she has on now - she wore a dark hat on both occasions.

      Re-examined. I say that it was on a Tuesday because she asked me if the Novelette was for that week, and I said "Yes, to-day."

      GEORGE EDWARD MINTER . I am the father of the last witness - about the end of March, on a Tuesday I think, she brought me a bad halfcrown - I bent it in the tester easily - it was a George III., and similar to this (produced) - directly I took it in my hand I found it was too light."

      More evidence followed; at the end of the trial the accused was found not guilty.
