She was imprisoned again and again, and became an inmate, at one time and another, of some thirty-two different jails. She had trial after trial—in which it was discovered that her tongue was as sharp as her hatchet- she often addressing even the judge presiding as “Your Dishonor,” while prosecuting attorneys she treated with supreme scorn. Not much mercy was shown her in the county bastilles- she was often bestowed in cells next to insane people—in the hope, she thinks, that she might become really crazy, as well as reputedly so.About the author:William Allen White (1868–1944) was an author, newspaper editor, and politician. Other works include biographies of Woodrow Wilson and Calvin Coolidge, and an autobiography.
