Nice find, Gary.
Poll was admitted to the SGE Infirmary in April 1895 and was discharged in late May. She had already been in there Jan to April 1895 so perhaps Fogarty was looking for someone to take take care of him while she was away this time?
Like Robert, I think the hard labour sounds harsh for a blind man.

Thanks, Debs. I did wonder about Poll's whereabouts at the time.

Both this report and the one concerning the attack on Millicent Fox mentions his form for malicious damage. Perhaps it was a technique he employed to get himself off the streets occasionally.

From memory, the blind man who repeatedly stabbed his guide got only three month's hard labour. What strange values those old Victorians had.
