"A Christian Doesn't Take Out a Summons"

A plea that "the Lord put the whip into her hand" was made by Mrs. Sophia Williams, of Livingstone-road, Thornton Heath, when she was summoned at Croydon Borough Police Court, on Tuesday, for assaulting a boy of thirteen.

THE summons was issued by Mrs. Elizabeth Ely, of Livingstone-road, on behalf of her son.


The boy said he was playing with a ball on Monday of last week, kicking it from the kerb to the fence of his house, when defendant came out of her house opposite with a whip in her hand, and started to hit him with it, leaving weals on his left arm. He picked up a stick to defend himself. Mrs. Williams told him it was the law that he must not play in the street, and told him to go away.

Mrs. F.M. Davy and Mrs. Clark, also of Livingstone-road, said they saw Mrs. Williams assault the boy. Mrs. Clark adding that it was she who told him to use the stick.

P.s. Ilott gave evidence as to the weals on the boy's arm.


Mrs. Williams, who refused on religious grounds either to take the oath or to affirm, said she had been troubled for months by boys playing in the streets, and only the day before the boy's brother had played football on the Sabbath. A few minutes before, the boy had been insolent to her, and she went back into her house and took up a length of electrical flex. When the boy came back he called out to her. She went over to him and "the Lord took the whip." Mrs. Williams said that she was only an agent.

Corroborative evidence of the boy's behaviour was given by another witness.


The Bench decided to impose a fine of 10s., telling defendant that if she was annoyed again she should take out a summons.

"A Christian," replied Mrs. Williams, "doesn't take out a summons."

Defendant refused at first to pay the fine, and was therefore given the option of seven days' imprisonment.
