The paragraph inserted in this Paper of Saturday last, stating that an action had been commenced against me by Mr William Candler, of Stowmarket, for an assault is not true.  In consequence of a summons from a Magistrate, I appeared to answer a charge of having used abusive language towards the said William Candler; and upon my denying his statement, he said , in the presence of the Magistrate, “D- you Cutchey, it is a d- lye.”  This language from a person whose charge against me amounted to no more than abuse, shew that I could be under no necessity of making “proper acknowledgement,” as that paragraph states.  At the suggestion of my friend who thought that the less I had to do with such a man the better I paid a £1 note.  The ostentatious purchase of bread with this money, and the publicity given so falsely of the transaction, tend to the disgrace of William Candler and not of BARTHOLOMEW CUTCHEY.
