William Jackson alias "Daisy" was summoned for being found drunk in Oakeywell Street. A long list of convictions were recorded against him, but the last dated as far back as July last year.

The ale that made him drunk on that occasion was given to him for work he had done. Defendant promised not to offend again and the case was adjourned for three months to put him on his good behaviour.
