Gran­tham Jour­nal Satur­day 22 Septem­ber 1888 AMUS­ING IN­CI­DENT

An amus­ing in­ci­dent oc­curred in a Leices­ter church on Sun­day morn­ing. When the time came, to­wards the close of the ser­vice, for mak­ing the of­fer­tory, the plates could not be found, though they had been brought out of the vestry and put in the usual place ear­lier in the morn­ing. It was be­lieved they had been stolen, and in­for­ma­tion was sent to the po­lice. When the con­gre­ga­tion left the miss­ing plates were found in the pew and it was then re­mem­bered that a lady had oc­cu­pied the seat. She had ev­i­dently sat upon them through­out the ser­vice with­out know­ing it. Need­less to say the mes­sen­ger sent to the po­lice was re­called as soon as pos­si­ble.
