"Whereas Mr Herbert Jones, attorney-at-law, in the town of Monmouth, well known by being several years together Under-sheriff of the same county, hath of late divers times robbed the mail coming from that town to London, and taken out divers letters and writs, and is now fled from justice, and supposed to have sheltered himself in some of the new-raised troops.

"There are to give notice, that whosoever shall secure the said Herbert Jones, so as to be committed, in order to answer these said crimes, may give notice thereof to Sir Thomas Fowles, goldsmith, Temple Bar, London, or to Mr Michael Bohune, mercer, in Monmouth, and shall have a guinea's reward." --Quoted from the London Gazette of the period by Andrew Wynter, M D, in his "Curiosities of Civilization," 1861.
