There pobably is to Mr. Lyte. Johnny tries to sell the silver cup for cash, but the local silversmiths will only offer him four pounds for it because the design is so old-fashioned. He knows it is worth more to Mr. Lyte because it is part of a set, so he goes back to the Lyte house and offers to sell it. However, Mr. Lyte takes it forcibly and threatens to report Johnny for theft (again) if he complains.
