Chivalry Justice & the Female Acid Attack Stalker – Chicago 1901


FULL TEXT: “If you don’t intend to marry the girl don’t waste her father’s gas and coal by courting her.” That was the substance of the remarks made by Justice Prindiville, of Chicago, and there was a sensation in court when the Justice discharged a young woman who threw acid on the young man who had won her tender heart in Detroit a few months ago, and then came to Chicago and began to take another young women, who had more money, to the theatres and dances.
