woman between 20 and 22 years of age,
who introduced herself io him as Miss
Madeline Breckmridgo Pollard, saying
that her father was such an admirer of
John O. Breckinridge that ho named her
after said Breckinridge: that subsequently
the defendant received a letter from the
plaintiff saving that she was in great
distress and desired his legal advico, and
asking him to see her ot Wesloyan Col
lege, in Cincinnati, which tho dofondant
answered was inconvenient, upon which
she notified him that tho matter about
which she was distressed was an engage
ment to marry, which had assumeu a
condition worse than a divorce suit, and
reitterating her request to Bee him per
sonally: that tho defendant did see tho
plaintiff at said college and she gave him
a full recital of her relations with one
James C. Rodes, and thereupon the
defendant advised her to consummate
the contract between her and said Rodes
by marriage, and subsequently, after a
full conversation with the said Rodes,
tho defendant renewed his advico, and
the defendant denies that he then, or at
any other time or place, by wiles or
artifices and protestations of affection, or
by any other means, attempted to take
advantage of tho youth and inexperience
of the plaintiff.
Ho denies that he then, or at anvother
time, seduced the said plaintiff; and he
denies that tho plaintiff was at any time
pregnant by the defendant, or that ho at
any timo prevented her from going
abroad or from entering upon any career
that the plaintiff desired to enter upon.
or that it was through any protestations,
influence or request of tno defendant
that the plaintiff failed cither to go
abroad or to enter upon any career she
desired, and he denies that there was at
any time any agreement, contract or"
understanding of marriage between tho
plaintiff and the defendant, and tho
plaintiff knew during her entire ac
quaintance with tho defendant that a
marriage between the plaintiff and
defendant was impossible.
