HISTORICAL BOXFORD PRESS



Flash in the pan

The Suffolk Chronicle
09 March 1810

Last Saturday morning, about 3 o'clock, as Mr. Howe, draper and tailor, was returning from Stoke to Boxford, near the Green Lane, Polsted, a man rushed from the hedge, and attempted to seize the bridle of his horse; but failing in the attempt, (by the motion of the spirited animal,) he presented a gun, which fortunately flashed in the pan, and Mr. H. escaped without injury.
