Vincent):- Gc" itien-ieii,I wa-s brought up by my grand- Mother until I was 14 years of age; when she died I went to service as a nurse to [I place where ?y mother was a cook, at Cardiff-road, PwH- eh. Mother left the phK? at P'.vUheM. and went ,Its a housekeeper to a widower to Penrhyndeu- raoUl. Aftor she liad been there some time she iftarried him, then I left mv place and went to livo with them. After I had been home a few -eeks my etep-father turned very unkind to me •s^^d also to my mother. Then I got lodging in In,,ume and got sent to prison for a month. j hell I came out of prison I went home. But ,tber was no home for me; I wa.s turned out ?° I had nothing to do So I got lodging again In my step-father's name. I wa3 tried at Port- JtoUioc Police Court and got out on bail until th L, sessions. While I was waiting to be tried my stop-father died. At the Carnarvon Sessions, yt1 tolier 14th, 1912, I was sentenced to three years In a. Borstal Institution. While I was at Bor- -tal my mother married again, a widower with ) three little children. I served two years and six tnOÜhs at Borstal, then I came home to wait on toy mother who was ill with cancer. She died .August 17th, 1816, and left me with no one to j Pftd on. My home was broken up. I had how ho re to go, so I came to Carnarvon to a friend at the Land Valuation Office, Carnarvon. Worked there for my food. She got tired of Ine, so I went to her friend's house and she asked tne to go, there to her for a few days until I .ould get work. While I was there she pawned *11 my clothes out of my box, because she had j*° food. I was only there two days, and I paid ? 6d for my place. Then I came to Conway to -Y last step-father's sister's .house. She had no foom. So I got lodging again on false protenoea Iond was sentenced to three months h.l., Car- narvon. I was discharged from prison on Janu- 4eY 15th, 1917, on a cold snowy morning with- Out a penny in my pocket. I walked to my Mother's uncle's house to Bethel, and e refused to take me in. I had no one else to go to, so I mme to Bangor bnd got lodging on false pretences, and also Oot-s. I am quite willing to go to a home or Cautlitioii works, or anywhere, if only for my food for a while to keep straight. I have had very hard life all these years, and nothing but Prison. I can't get on in my own strength with- out somebody's help. I am willing to do any- th,ng to keep straight, so I beg of you, as gen- tlemen, to give me one more chance, and do *<Miiething with me instead of sending me to Prison every time. Trusting, gentlemen, you take a lenient view of my case thia time.- (Signed) Kate Griffiths." The defendant was committed to the next Quarter Sessions, no application being made for ¡ ail.
