Police Report of UNIDENTIFIED COUPLE, 20 May 1826

A hapless couple, who had only been tied a few days before “in the silken bands of Hymen,” were charged with stopping out after hours, and tippling in a public-house without any of the “ready rino” to compensate for such tippling. The male prisoner was adjudged 14 days to the tread-mill—the damsel was ordered to do penance for some tedious days in the Factory.
