Wronged Wife Shelters the
'Other Woman' and Babies
And Live Happy Together
MRS. MORGAN AND HER TWO
AKRON, 0., Oct. 10.—"I have
nuule this n home of affection,"
said* William C. Morgan, hospital
"Bill Morgan's harem!" ex
clttlm certain of the neighbors,
who often saw Morgan kissing
two women, one young, fair
haired and pretty; the other gray
haired and worn by household
drudgery. Each morning they
saw him kiss the two K<>o<ll>y, and
every evening saw him kiss them
again us lie returned from work.
"A polygamous union," ex
plain officers of the law who are
waiting for the grand jury to act
before further attempts are made
to take from the tlvree parents
the eight children who have lived
in this "home of affection."
The little, worn woman is Mrs.
Morgan, the mother of six chil
dren, ranging from 5 to 1 7 years;
the younger and prettier woman
is Mary Thomas, the mother of
two, Buster, aged 3, and Thomas,
"They're all mine and I love
every one of them," says Morgan.
Years ago the Morgans had
known Mary Thomas in a little
Pennsylvania village. Morgan
and his family moved to Akron
and later Mary Thomas came
seeking work. Mrs. Morgan
gave her shelter and together they
did the household work. About
three years ago Mary Thomas dis
appeared from the Morgan home.
Mrs. Morgan was at a loss to
guess the cause for her departure
"I told her,' says Morgan, a
stronig man of 42, "where Mary
was; that she was in a hospital
at Pitttsburg; that she was about
to become a mother and that I
was responsible for her condiion.
My guilt lay heavy on my soul,
and I made a clean breast of it
to my wife, the best little woman
who ever lived."
"My husband had Binned," de
clared Mrs. Morgan, adding,
"when one sins one must atone
for his sin And I was his wife
so why shouldn't I do what I
could to aid"
That was why she took Mary
Thomas and her baby In—be
cause her husband was responsi
ble for the young woman's shame
and sorrow and she would do her
utmost to right the wrong.
Nearly three years went by,
and again Mary Thomas went
away, and again the big, brawny
husband confessed his Bin to the
little, sorrowing wife, who again
forgave him —and not only that,
but sent for the young mother
and the new baby.
"I never would have gone
back," Mary Thomas said, "nev
er, never in the world, if Mrs.
Morgan hadn't asked me to."
The eight children were reared
together as one big family, the
two mothers did the household
work, and Morgan divided his
affections among them, much as
the old Mormon prophets were
supposed to have done—until the
neighbors interfered and notified
the authorities. Now it is possi
ble that Morgan will be Indicted
by the grand jury and the small
er children placed in institutions.
