lias licen an intimate friend of my hus'.mnd
and myself and nothing more. My hu»
band has forced me to defend myself, and
much as 1 regret it 1 will make revelations
that will cover him with shame. The money
represented by the judgment I foreclosed
was all loaned by me to keep Inn company
afloat, and this I can prove by my own per

my support. His attention to other women
bus Wen a matter of notoriety."
