    The truth of the matter is that Mother did, at one time, sew for a young woman of the streets. When this unfortunate woman later died of tuberculosis, the Catholic Church refused to bury her. Mother was outrage by this, and wrote a letter to the newspaper to protest the this lack of compassion of the part of the Church. When the Pinkertons got hold of this story, they changed Mother's role from seamstress to Madame, and a scandal was born and spread by the Polly Pry.
