Twenty-five years later, aged 68, Osborne continued to seek relief from his financial problems by breaking the law. On the 10th of January 1911 at the Town Hall Court in Cheshire he pleaded guilty that, “being an undischarged bankrupt on the 2nd of May 1907 he unlawfully obtained credit to the extent of £20 and upwards, to wit, credit to the extent of £61.11.10 from Brown and Co. Chester.”

Court Record

His sentence on this occasion was 3 months’ imprisonment without hard labour. Osborne’s public examination in bankruptcy had been adjourned, as reported in the Gloucester Citizen for the 27th of June 1907.
