Brought up in houses of ill repute

Incorrigible – The Montreal Gazette Jan. 6, 1880

Frederick Hartly, a youth of ten summers, was brought up yesterday at a Special Sessions of the Peace, charged with being a habitual frequenter of disreputable houses. Owing to the questionable character of the lad’s mother, and to save him from the baneful society of which he moves, the youth was sent for five years to the Reformatory.
