Miss Belle Morehoiise Laurence Thaws
Hurry old teacher was
ailed to the stand to testify in his behalf today
In childhood the boy was morose nervous
subject to frequent at
I tacks of Wind rage When he cime to her school and long thereafter his
language was unintelligible in fact
act one entirely his own
Thaw seldom associated with other children she testified and often
without reason created violent scenes in the class room
Miss Lawrence followed Airs William Thaw the
aged mother of
Mary Thaw who rounded out the plea of the defense that parental in
fluences and hereditary weaknesses caused Harry Thaw to become insane
The prisoners mother although pale and ill took the witness stand
and in a quiet faltering voice told of the illness that beset her before his
birth and the perils of his early childhood j
To do this she bared to the public the secrets of her home and J
family it developing that two of her brothers were atllicted one dying
weakminded and the other recovering after an attack of insanity J
Anthony Comstock the vIce crusader was the most interesting wit f
ness in the morning refsiwi M till Thaw trial today He testified to 5
receiving a call from any Thaw early in 1901 and that he thought j
Thaws mind was unbalanced j
Comstock identified copies of letters he had received from Thaw I
in which charges were mad i ainst Stanford White The tone of the f
letters showed hat linn was at that time greatly wrought up over I
what he believed was Whiles systematic warfare upon young women Ii
