ful to Her.
MINEOLA. N. Y., Nov. 27. Mrs.
Errazuriz, mother of Mrs. Bianca de
Saullos, was expected to take the wit
ness stand to testify on behalf of hor
daughter today, who is on trial
charged with tho murder of hof
divorced husband, John L. de Saulles.
Mrs. Errazuriz, with her other
daughter, Amelia and her son Wil
liam, came to New York from Chile on
the first ship available upon hearing of
the tragedy at De Saulles' home near
Wcstbury, Long Island, on the night of
August 3. In the event of Mrs. de
Saulles' acquittal, tho mother and her
three children intend to return to their
Chilean home, accompanied by John
L. do Saulles, Jr.
Contrary to predictions yesterday,
Mrs. Bianca de Saulles, on trial for
the murder of her husband, was re
turned to the witness stand this morn
ing for crossexamination by District
Attorney Charles R. Weeks, who is
conducting tho prosecution.
Prosecution's First Question.
Weeks' first question was in relation
to her closing statement yesterday,
that she remembered nothing from the
time she feared her former husband
would refuse to give her custody of
their son until she awakened in the
Nassau county jail. Ho asked whether
she testified to that effect. The wit
ness answered in the affirmative.
Other questions brought a state
ment from Mrs. de Saulles that she
had suffered considerably from her
head during her three months' Impris
onment. The defendant said she had
not suffered any lapses of memory
while in jail, but that her finger nails
had been very brittle and that her hair
had fallen out to an appreciable
Thyroid Gland System.
The defense nlaintains these symp
toms indiacte the disease of the thy
roid gland, hypothyerosis from which
it is claimed she was suffering at the
time of the tragedy.
After drawing from Mrs. de Saulles
that it was "just before the war that
she first believed her husband was
not faithful to her," the prosecutor
read a letter which the witness iden
tified as having been written by her
in which she told her husband he had
been "such a perfect, loving husband"
and "a sweet father."
"I said that because he had stayed
with me during the birth of our baby,"
Mrs. die Saulles said after the letter
had been read.
Other letters, purporting to show
she was living In a state of domestic
tranquility prior to the time she
secured a divorce were read. In one
of these Mrs. de Saulles asked her
husband "to get an appointment as
minister to London."
In the midst of Weeks' questioning,
Mrs. de Saulles interrupted to say:
"I never wrote a letter or said any
thing to anyone letting them know
anything but that I was extremely
"You were not?" asked Judge Man
ning. "Yes, your honor," answered Mrs.
de Saulles. I
Mrs. de Saulles' Letters.
In one letter to her husband, Mrs.
de Saulles said:
"If you don't trust me at least give
me credit for having a good head r
am very careful with the invitations I
accept and know when I can go out
with a man."
"Have you found anyone prettier
than your baby girl," Mrs. de Saulles
asked her husband in another letter.

Saw Husband on Yacht
Mrs. de Saulles' story of seeing her
husband aboard a yacht with the Duke
of Manchester surrounded with a
"bevy of Broadway' choicest beauties"
came into the examination at this
"Did you not know that Mr. de
Saulles was then associated with the
duke in a deal to furnish horses to
the Allied governments and in which
your husband cleaned up $50,000?" ask
"I never knew that," replied Mrs. de
Another letter was read In which
Mrs. de Saulles begged her husband's
forgiveness for "spending so absurdlv
on clothes." "I'll not do it again," she
"You have worked so hard and 'de
serve success," another part of the let
"Did you mean that?"
."I thought then that he was work

Mrs. de Saulles Very Unhappy
Mrs. de Saulles testified that she was
"very unhappy" and "very hurt'' over
an Incident in London when de Saulles
would not permit her to stay at the
same hotel where he was stopping.
"But you said nothing of that in
this letter, did you?" asked Weeks. He
had just read another letter written to
her husband in which words of affec
tion were repeated.
"My heart was broken when I wrote
that letter, but I would not tell him
so," replied the witness.
A portion of this letter told of a
dance Mrs. de Saulles had attended.
Sho said she had danced until "she bad
no feet left to stand on."
"You had a good time at that
dance?" asked Weeks.
"You can dance with your feet, even
though your heart is broken," answer
ed Mrs. do Saulles.
In another part of the letter the de
fendant wrote that at the dancing par
