Before leaving for the French capital he was
hoard to swear that be wouldnt pay one
farthing of the 10000 damage > which be had
been fined for trifling with the feelings of the

assigned to Mrs Duncan and it is very prob
able that In consequence of the unenviable
repute which it has now achieved she will ills

than probable that Miss Knuwless solicitors
