This is the debt I pay Just for one riotous day, Years of regret and grief. Sorrow without relief.

Blackmailing





There are in London and every large city scores of men and women who
live by blackmailing or chantage. There are many different forms of this
industry. There is the man who knows something about your past life,
which he threatens to reveal to your friends or colleagues unless you
buy him off. There is the breach-of-promise blackmailer, and there is
the female patient, who threatens to charge you with improper conduct or
indecent assault. Medical men from their position are often selected as
victims. The introduction of corridor carriages on many of our railways
has done much to stamp out one particular form of blackmailing, but
public urinals are still a source of danger.

It is the worst possible policy to temporize with a blackmailer. If you
give him a single penny, you are his for life. It is as well to remember
that it is just as criminal to attempt to extract money from a guilty as
from an innocent person. It is of no use attempting to deal with these
cases single-handed. You must not only deny the allegation, but 'spurn
the allegator.' Put the matter into the hands of a good sharp criminal
solicitor, and instruct him to rid you of the nuisance by taking
criminal proceedings.
