FORGOT FINE, APOLOGIZES.
The New York Times
December 31, 1922
Van Ness Richards of 428 Lafayette Street, New York City, was brought to Yonkers City Court yesterday on a warrant after he had failed for several weeks to pay a fine and then sent a postal order with a note apologizing and wishing the Judge a happy New Year. His excuse for failing to pay the fine was that he forgot about it.
He was fined $10 for speeding by Judge Morris Rosenwasser two months ago. The Judge paroled him on his promise to send the money to pay the fine. Lieutenant Andrew Thompson of the Traffic Bureau told the Judge that Richards also ignored a letter sent him asking him to pay the money. When he was arraigned in court Judge Rosenwasser warned him to heed a fine hereafter or risk improsonment. He was released.\
