.+- A MERIONETHSHIRE DIVORCE CASE. On Thursday, in the Divorce Division of the High Court of Justice, the President (Sir Francis Jeune) had before him the undefended case of Williams v. Williams and Roberts. This was a husband's petition for a dissolution of his marriage on the ground of the adultery of his wife \yith the co-respondent. Mr J C Priestley, who appeared for the husband, said the petitioner, Evan Williams, was a farmer, living at a place called Cefnereuan- isaf, Brithdir, near Dolgelley. He was married to Mary Lewis on Dec. 13, 1889, at the New Indepen- dent Chapel, Dolgelley, and there had been no issue of the marriage. The petitioner, who was a small farmer, had in 1398 in his employment a man called Ellis Roberts, the co-respondent in the case. The evidence of a female servant at the farm of the petitioner would be to the effect that on several occasions when Mr Williams had been absent from home the respondent and co-respondent had been seen together in the bedroom of the former, and it was quite clear that Mrs Williams had forgotten herself to the extent of having relations wiLh a servant, who, according to the custom at these small places in Wales, live as one of the family. The petitioner, however, was not aware of what was going on until May last year, when his servant girl, Maggie Edwarde, gave some information to him with regard to what she had observed going on between her mistress and the co-respondent. The petitioner at the time was away at a neighbour- ing farmer's. The respondent apparently knew that her husband would be informed, and she had left the house before his return, and had never been seen since. But a letter written by her in Welsh and addressed to the oo-respondent, had been picked up, and in it she used terms of great affec- tion for Roberts. After the institution of proceed- ings the matter was defended, and particulars were asked for, but none had been furnished, and the case came on now as undefended. The petitioner and Maggie Williams, domestic servant having given evidence, His Lordship granted the petitioner a decree nisi. with an order for coats against the respondent and Roberts.
