Sutton In The News - 157 Years Ago This Week:
A LADY’S DISCLAIMER - To the Editor of the “Reporter”
Sir, - Can I secure a little space in your valuable paper for the insertion of this disclaimer? Last Friday evening, somewhere in the vicinity of Junction-lane, Sutton, a certain lady sought to pass-away an idle half-hour by indulging in a little gossip of which I was the subject. She claimed that I wrote letters to soldiers on active service, and said that, should their wives become acquainted with the fact, I should find myself in very serious trouble…But it is not so. Certainly I will not deny that I write to a soldier who is “somewhere in France”. However, he is not a benedict, and, in my opinion, would have not thought of becoming one for some time yet, for just now he is only a young lad. The lady made her remarks to a friend of mine, but asked her, if she did mention the conversation to me, not to “let on” who had said it. Well, now, may I state here that I do not reckon much of any person who says something and then does not want anyone to know she did say it! Also, that I am quite insulted by the remarks made by this person, whoever she may be. I can honestly say that I never do anything without the full knowledge and approval of my parents, and, further, that should this catch the eye of the lady concerned, I will be pleased to accept her apology at my home address with which she is acquainted. I must admit that in my opinion she would have been better employed on the afore-mentioned occasion had she been in her own home, knitting socks for the soldiers, or at any rate in keeping a still tongue. I am neither vindictive nor narrow-minded; but I must and will protect my own good name. - ALICE DIXON
