05Aug1872, Interview with a Drunken Woman

LONDON, Monday, August 5th, 1872.
—My last E. End journey. I had an interview with a drunken woman (wife of a respectable old man in the Workhouse) who has been in prison for a fortnight and come out with a wish to reform. There is a laundry just opened on purpose to reclaim drunkards, and I have told her of it.
