Lent arrested on complaint from Bertha Juratreke who rented 74 Mercer Street from Lent. She said he rented the property to her for 2 years--however D. H. Haight was the actual owner of the property and Lent did not have his authority to rent it.
The source uses a play on the word "bear" throughout. Lent registered a complaint to the Mobile News in an "insolent" manner. Lent fled the season but was picked up by the Deputy Marshall and imprisoned. Must appear before the mayor on the next day.
