"A tottering old woman, dressed in workhouse clothing, was charged with being drunk and incapable in Great Hampton Street. In answer to the
Bench she said she and another old woman had a pint of beer. It was given to her. Inspector Hall: Yes, sir, she had a day's holiday, and some one treated her. People
often give this kind of people drink. She was discharged with a caution."
