Eliza Crittenden's

business > bawdy house

On the same night that the police raided Till Wade's house, they raided "the notorius den of Eliza Crittenden in Prather's Alley." Both "black and white" girls were arrested: Mary Eaton, Mary Jane Holley, Sarah Bonds, Annie Eaton and Elizabeth McManus. Justice Walter fined the women $1.00 each; he fined the keeper $11. "Two negro men, found in the same hosue, were also arrested, but as nothing could be proved against them they were dismissed."
