Details: Mary Smith per Mary, in the service of James Mudie charged with refusing to return to her service and for general misconduct....Miss Emily Mudie states...At the request of my father I this morning directed Mary Smith to hold herself in readiness to proceed with us to our farm at Patrick Plains. She positively refused to go and added that if she did go she would go dead. I have frequently had occasion to complain of her improper language and behaviour towards me and her repeated disobedience of my orders....Mary Smith states in her defence as follows. My reasons for refusing to return to Mr. Mudies farm are 1st. That Mr. Mudie came to the skilling where I slept and without any provocation knocked me down on my bed. 2nd. That frequently for three weeks out of a month I have been obliged to drink siftings coffee instead of tea; 3rd. I have been obliged to eat bread baked in the ashes. 4th. That when I have bread at breakfast, I had not any butter allowed me. 5th. That the only tea I ever got was that which was left from the Parlour breakfast table. Mary Smith admits that anything coming from the Parlour dinner table was allowed to be eaten in the kitchen but adds that so little was in general left that it was but a trifling addition to the dinner of her and the overseer who always partook with her. Mr. Mudie denies most solemnly ever having struck Mary Smith States that upon the occasion alluded to the prisoner called him an old rascal and using other insolent expressions very much irritated him and he laid hold of her to push her away and she fell on her bed ....Miss Emily Mudie corroborated Mr. Mudies statement and stated Mary Smith lived in every respect like ourselves. On one occasion when our stock of tea was extinguished and none was to be procured at Patrick Plains, the family for a short time had to drunk siftings coffee. Mary Smith had always as much sugar as she chose to ask for but was desired not to waste it in making lolly pops. I always put fresh tea in the pot for the servants in the kitchen and the prisoner has always till now expressed herself satisfied with the treatment she receives from me but her conduct has upon various occasions been most insulting. She has shook her fist and spit at me. She has called me and my sisters pigs and hogs....I have detected her taking wine and spirits from the decanter clandestinely and yesterday she left the house without leave and returned in a state of intoxication. Mary Smith being found guilty of the charges preferred against her is sentenced to three weeks solitary confinement in the cells of the Factory at Parramatta and then to be employed at government labour.
