Police Report of MARGARET O’BRIEN, 19 July 1826

MARGARET O’BRIEN, an assigned servant to Mr. CONNOR, Superintendent of the Prisoners’ Barrack, was next brought up on the complaint of her master, for impropriety of conduct. The nature of this alleged impropriety, the female exhibited in her proper person. She appeared in such a state “as ladies wish to be, who love their lords,” but as this interesting object could not fix on any one to whom she might apply the term of husband, and order for admitting her within the Factory was without loss of time, signed and delivered.
