She slept with loaded pistols by her bedside
If you think that your situation is dreadful, you might be interested to read about Jane Welsh in 1852. She wrote a letter to a close one telling them that since she started having repairs done on her house four months previously, she had had to sleep with loaded pistols at her bedside. It had all started when the smell of paint meant that she had to sleep with her windows open. Word soon got about in the underworld and Jane was robbed of six pounds worth of items before the thieves were frightened off by the sound of a candlestick falling.
Another time, the criminals climbed up the drawing room windows but found them fastened. Later, Jane was alarmed by the sound of glass being cut. She leaped out of bed, struck alight and listened, she heard it again and then it was followed by a great bang. She took her loaded pistols and went downstairs. She heard another bang and realised that it was at the front door. She shouted through asking the person who they were and what they wanted. The reply which came back was that of a policeman who wanted to know if she knew that both her parlour windows were open. Jane had a giggle when she wondered what he would have thought if he’d have known that he was so close to her cocked pistol.
