Oxford Journal 23 November 1793.

The apprehension of Lyon was as follows:- On Tuesday evening, a person of shabby appearance came on foot to the "New Inn," at Deal, Kent, and ordered some fish and beef- steaks for his supper, which were accordingly got him; and, after drinking a pint of wine, he told the waiter that he was going to take a walk, but should return to sleep there. Between 10 and 11 o'clock he came back, drank some punch, and went to bed, but feeling very unwilling to be noticed, together with the extraordinary figure he made, having an old wig on, which did not fit him, caused the waiter to suspect he had been guilty of some bad act, and had come in this disguise for the purpose of getting on board an outward bound vessel. The matter however, remained till the morning, when the same waiter going up to town, observed the bills, offering a reward of 200 for the apprehending of James Lyon for forgery, when it immediately struck him that this must be the person; on which he applied to the mayor of Deal for a warrant, and took him into custody just as he was getting out of bed.
