At Hertford County Sessions, Louisa Seymour, of Little Berkhamstead, pleaded guilty to using bad language on July 3rd.
PC Wells said that at 10 p.m., he was passing the defendant’s house, when he heard her using filthy language.
Mr Brown, a neighbour, and his son complained to PC Wells about the defendant’s conduct. She continued to use bad language until midnight. Mr Brown said that unfortunately for him he was a neighbour of the defendant’s and was nightly awakened by her drunken and riotous conduct; the whole of his household was being disturbed.
Louisa Seymour said she never used filthy language except when she got drunk.
The Chairman said she had repeatedly been before the bench and she would be fined 25 shillings, or in default, one month’s imprisonment.
