Mrs. Weldon's

business > bawdy house

This bawdy house was located at No. 437 10th St. between G and H. The Provost Marshal's list notes that it had 2 inmates and was a Class 1.

The police raided Lizzie Weldon's house on Tenth St, near G. They arrested Annie Douke, Mary Brown, Jennie Smith, and Julia West. Justice Clayton charged Julia West with "keeping a bawdy house." There was not enough evidence, however, so the case was dismissed.
