MARTHA WORDEN, landlady of the GREEN DRAGON INN,
Lancaster Road, was summoned for using indecent language at
the house of Elizabeth Worthington.
Mrs Worthington was the owner of the Green Dragon, and the
defendant's husband was the tenant. It appeared that about six
months ago, Mrs. Worthington gave Mr. Worden notice to leave
the house, and that transaction had been a source of some
grievance to both parties.
On Tuesday night, shortly before 10 o'clock, the defendant
went to the complainant's house and used most indecent and
abusive language in the street. Mrs. Worthington opened the
door and Worden continued the disturbance by shouting and
calling the complainant foul names.
The row had been about the value of the annual rental.
A witness was called who said that both Worthington and
Worden entered rather warmly into the conversation in the
The case was dismissed.
