Guest fishing without a licence

Defence in Writing. DEAF AND DUMB ANGLER'S VISIT TO THE TEIFY. An unexpected difficulty arose at Tregaron Petty Sessions, when it was found that Albert G. Lee, South Marine-terrace, Aberystwyth, charged with having fished for trout in the River Teify without a license, was deaf and dumb. It was eventually arranged to explain the offence to the defendant in writing, and to allow him to make his defence in the same way. Defendant handed in a written statement, in which he said that he asked the proprietress of the Deva Anns, Pont Llamio, for a permit to fish in the River Teify, and after some hesitation she gave him the name of a place where he could fish. He then thought he was safe, and went on fishing. When the bailiff gave him to understand that a license was necessary he went the same day to Tregaron and got one. It having been explained that Lee was a visitor to the district, the case was dismissed on payment of costs.
Notes:Although this refers to the Deva Arms, Pont Llanio, it is almost certainly the Derry Arms, Pont Llanio. The place is too small for more than one pub!
