|+||====== Capping a Man ======|
|+||Wrapping one of the [[b:blankets|blankets]] with which the [[p:pelts|pelt]] [[b:balls|balls]] are capped about a man's head, and tying it round his neck. This most filthy and disgusting punishment is very rarely inflicted in a press room; yet I have read an account of a trial at the Old Bailey for an assault, in which this act was the ground of offence. |
