There is a reference in the Brisbane Courier Mail 29 December 1892 to an event at the Petty Debts Court. Annabella summoned George Manley Smith and W Lane who traded as Smith and Lane for 30 pounds damages. The defendants kept a fruit shop in Stanley Street and had encouraged Annabella to purchase the fixtures, stock in trade and goodwill for 50 pounds when net returns were said to be 1.10pounds to 2 pounds per week. She felt that this representation was false so claimed 30 pounds damages for loss sustained. The defendants denied indebtedness. Annabella stated that she made nothing out of the business, the grown takings in the shop for six weeks being about 10 pounds.
