As is well known, here and in those countries judges are required to punish wrong-doers according to the letter of the law rather than according to their ineffable acuity as superior gentlemen.
This story involves a judge who made a judgement based not on the relevant sections of law but on his trusty common sense. So, as you will see, it has to do with England or, to be more precise, London, or, to be even more precise, Kensington; or perhaps Brompton or Bayswater — anyway, somewhere thereabouts.
I should explain that this otherwise respectable lady had aroused the suspicions of Police Inspector McCleary. And so it came to pass that, the very next day, that good lady went to visit Mrs Myers in Bayswater or Marylebone or wherever. And she pretended to be appropriately nervous as, having rung the bell, she waited to be shown in to Mrs Myers. Oh look! That means money. And the jack of hearts! That means travel. Very very grateful.
But may I ask, Mrs Myers, what it would cost without the adversity? She pulled three cards out from the pack. He should come to see me to find out more. A lot of Scotland Yard people come and ask me to read the cards for them. So, send him to see me. Mr Jones? Goodbye, my dear Miss Jones… Next please! That woman was far too interested in your late father.
A damn German! Somewhat surprisingly the high-ups took it all seriously, and thus it was that Mrs Myers was eventually summoned to appear before His Honour Judge Kelly. And that, my dear Mrs Myers, is just the same as if you were selling bars of clay instead of chocolate. And the pleasure they get from that is surely worth a few shillings. And sometimes I even get it right. Please tell us about it, Mrs McCleary.
So how do you explain this nonsense, Mrs Myers? This person came to me all dolled up like a silly girl. But I noticed that her left glove was torn. So I foresaw a wedding for her and a rich bridegroom. Fortune tellers have to understand the cards. You will pay a fine of fifty pounds, just like tradespeople who wrongly describe their wares. Fraudulent fortune telling is cynical and dishonest behaviour, Mrs Myers.
