Shame on Robert Harshaw

From an archived Australian newspaper, Sydney, Dec. 17, 1857.
"Robert Harshaw, for having made use of obscene language in a public place, was sentenced to pay 20s, or to be imprisoned seven days."
 At least, if he didn't have the money to pay the fine, he'd be out of jail by Christmas.
