MR. WELCH RESENTS AN IMPUTATION ON HIS CHARACTER
Mr. James CASEY, a pawnbroker, of Myrtle Avenue, near Bridge Street, owns a gold watch, the associations connected with which make it peculiarly valuable to his eyes. About April 1 he found his timekeeper stopped and that somehow some of the works had become disarranged or broken. He left it at Messrs. SPOONER & WELCH's, Myrtle Avenue, to be repaired, and called for it on April 7. Mr. William H. WELCH was behind the counter, and handed Mr. CASEY the watch. He opened it, started, and said to Mr. WELCH:
"My works have been taken out of this watch, and you've put in bogus ones. The works that were in this watch when I bought it are not here now."
Mr. WELCH was startled, and examined the watch critically, after which he replied: "These are the same works you left here, and the watch has been properly repaired."
Mr. CASEY used some rash language in reply, and Mr. WELCH hurried around the counter and hit his dissatisfied customer on the left cheek, with a force which knocked him down and cut his face. Two persons outside who were flattening their noses against the window panes, and Mr. SPOONER and some clerks inside, witnessed the fracas, and will give their version of the affair in the City Court shortly. Counselor Richard C. CURRAN a few days ago had a summons and complaint in a $2,000 damage suit served upon Mr. WELCH, to which no answer has yet been made.
Charles married Amanda Rose on 16 Jan 1832 in Brooklyn NY. (Amanda Rose was born on 16 Jun 1813 in Brooklyn NY.)
