By Judith Kelleher Schafer
Whilst a clergyman urged to at least one of the 1st governors of Louisiana that he banish all disreputable girls to elevate the colony's ethical tone, the governor answered, "If I ship away all of the unfastened adult females, there'll be no girls left right here at all." Primitive, mosquito infested, and disorder ridden, early French colonial New Orleans provided few sights to attract good girls as citizens. King Louis XIV of France solved the inhabitants challenge in 1721 through emptying Paris's los angeles Salpêtrière criminal of a lot of its so much infamous prostitutes and convicts and sending them to Louisiana. lots of those ladies persisted to ply their alternate in New Orleans.
In Brothels, Depravity, and deserted Women, Judith Kelleher Schafer examines case histories from the 1st District courtroom of recent Orleans and tells the engrossing tale of prostitution within the urban ahead of the Civil warfare. Louisiana legislations didn't criminalize the promoting of intercourse until eventually the revolutionary period, even though the legislation forbade holding a brothel. Police arrested person public girls on obscure fees, for being "lewd and abandoned" or vagrants. The city's prosperous and influential landlords, a few of whom made large earnings through renting their estate as brothels, sought after their tenants again at the streets once attainable, they usually usually employed the easiest felony lawyers to aid free up the ladies from penal complex. The courts, in flip, frequently taken care of those "public women" leniently, exacting small fines or sending them to the city's workhouse for a couple of months. hence, prosecutors dropped just about all prostitution circumstances ahead of trial.
Relying on formerly unexamined court docket documents and newly on hand newspaper articles, Schafer ably information the brutal and sometimes harrowing lives of the ladies and younger ladies who engaged in prostitution. a few watched as gangs of rowdy males smashed their furnishings; a few continued beatings through their shoppers or different public girls enraged through suits of jealousy; others have been murdered. Schafer discusses the sexual exploitation of kids, intercourse around the colour line, violence between and opposed to public girls, and the city's feeble makes an attempt to suppress the exchange. She additionally profiles a number of notorious New Orleans intercourse staff, together with Delia fast, alias Bridget Fury, a flaming redhead with a keenness for stabbing males, and Emily Eubanks and her daughter Elisabeth, unfastened ladies of colour identified for assaulting white girls.
Although students have written a lot approximately prostitution in New Orleans' Storyville period, few historic experiences on prostitution in antebellum New Orleans exist. Schafer's wealthy research fills this hole and gives perception into an exciting interval within the background of the "oldest profession" within the Crescent urban.

The Picayune reported that one “miserable old wretch,” Mary Miller, alias Mother Miller, and two other women, Mary Banks, alias the One-Eyed Dragon, and Ellen O’Keefe, alias the Pet of the Workhouse, decoyed Mary O’Donnell into an “infamous den” on the corner of Girod and St. Mary streets. The newspaper noted that Mary O’Donnell had only recently immigrated to New Orleans before being decoyed by the “fiend” Mary Miller. The court discharged O’Donnell, sent the other three women to the workhouse, and in addition fined Miller twenty-five dollars.
The recorder fined her fifty dollars and required her to post a peace bond of five hundred dollars. ” The two Bridgets went to the parish prison, and the other two posted peace bonds. ” Eliza Sickles, “a frail specimen of humanity,” when charged with being drunk and using obscene language, went to the workhouse for sixty days. Police arrested a few men for obscene language, but the authorities used these charges mostly against public women as a way of getting them off the streets, at least temporarily.
Louisiana law defined a vagrant as an idle person who had no visible means of support and whom police found wandering about in public places such as groceries, beer houses, sheds, barns, uninhabited buildings, or in the streets. The definition also included habitual drunkards whose families complained about them. Most public women had residences, if only a rented room in a boardinghouse, and they did have a means of support, although not one considered honest or acceptable. Nevertheless, the New Orleans police picked up a steady stream of women whom they accused of vagrancy and brought them before the city’s recorders.
