Rochester Daily Republican, March 2, 1886

Mrs. Henrietta Hudtwalcker is a sprightly, petite, and pretty little German widow, though it is generally conceded that she is possessed, as the China-man says, of “too muchee talkee.”

Some time last season she horsewhipped a hired man by the name of Adolph Cahoes. for which she was yanked into court, but because of her ability to present her case under oath she went out Scott free. Recently the same little charmer held a chin music matinee with one of her step-sons, who is perhaps about her age, and the only possible show the dutiful could have against his stepmother’ was to shut off her wind until he could have his say, and for this offense a suit was brought against him for assault and for surety of the peace. The assailing party was bound over in the sum of one hundred dollars.
