Unrequited love and a kick to the leg
Expensive Kiss – The Montreal Gazette, Feb. 12 1878
Leander Bourgoin, 17, was brought before the Recorder yesterday and fined $20 or two months’ imprisonment for attempting to kiss and afterwards kicking a little girl named Armenie Falardeau. He met her on the street, and said he would have a kiss no matter what happened to him, whereupon the young lady ran away and he followed. Finding he was foiled in his efforts to kiss her, he kicked her on the right leg.
