Fancy doing this to your Mother !!!

Found this in The Times digital archives  ;D

1824 Glasgow chronicles
A singular instance of imprisonment was brought to light by the society for relieving small debtors. A well behaved woman had been imprisoned for some trifling sum.
When the creditor was spoken with on the subject, he expressed his astonishment at her being in prison, as he had given his consent to her liberation on the day after she was taken into custody.
On further inquiry, it appeared that the daughter of the poor woman had intercepted the order for getting her out and had for 8 months paid the gaol aliment.
This unnatural conduct proceeded from the girl's desire to be freed from the restraint which her mothers presence would have laid on her vices

Naughty girl !!!! ;D
