Carlton was in comparatively humble

he was financially able to support his

three months ago she insisted that the
time was ripe for the final reunion, but
he had become very much attached to
a young woman of Colorado Springs,

publicly announced the marriage. She
is said to have retained the best di

will apparently file a cross bill claim
