Evidence Type: Newspaper Report
3 March 1834
MARY WARD, an amazonized visage, who understood the use of her mauleys to a nicety, was charged with trying the strength of a charley’s ribs, who had taken her into custody, which she pummelled most heartily, until he was obliged to call in further assistance, to his aid, and after a desperate struggle she was secured. MARY now looked unutterable things, and almost seemed inclined to pitch into the constable, who knowing her prowess kept at a respectable distance. She was sent to GORDON’s taming cage for six weeks.
