1882 - Thief

John Timmerman, the Bel Air clerk who absconded recently with about $300, has written from Chicago to his wife and Mr. Kernochan declined to intercept the letter. It comes to light that Timmerman, worse than the unjust steward, in some cases gave company receipts to his friends for their debts without receiving a cent. Timmerman's wife, a daughter of Mr. Feige, once a partner with Johnson in the bottling business, is greatly saddened and says she cannot understand the affair. Several gentlemen who have reason to know the case regard it as profound mystery. Mannock, the Bel Air merchant, loses more heavily than it was at first supposed.
