Lewis Phillips, solicitor, LIaaelly) appeared for Mrs Chamber- lain, and Mr W. Llewelyn Williams and Dr. Davies (instructed by Mr D. R. Edmunds, solicitor, Llanelly) appeared for Mrs Stephens. The case was partly heard on Tuesday. Mrs Elizabeth Davies, wife of the vicar of Blaenpenal, said the deceased, who was her uncle, when he came to her to live, complained of being ill, and said that he had fallen down in the night when getting out of bed. He said that he wished to alter his will. She remem- bered him saying there was nothing between him and his grandchildren, although he did not know them. She wes very fond of her uncle. Mr B. Francis Williams Of course you were. People are generally fond of their uncles, especially if they have.property to leave. Witness denied saying it would be a wise thing if the deceased left one or two cottages in Llanelly to either her son Johnny or Jacky. Rev. T. R. Davies, vicar "af Llanddewi Vel- frey, said that the deceased, who was his uncle, was not on good terms with his grand- children. The deceased wanted him to man- age his affairs, but witness would not do so without authority in writings The deceased went to Mr Watkins, solicitor,' Lampeter, who executed a deed of attorney in witness's favoos, Mr David Philips, contractor, Llanelly, took proceedings to recover deceased's furniture, but Mr Edmunds, solicitor, Llanelly, advised him not to go on with the case. They did not like to see the name of the deceased in the papers. The deceased, who wanted a new will made, was very much annoyed about a deed of gifttWhich they had prepared." He >was also aniioved over the County Court actiom Alt Williams tlfen read letters, in whfch wit- ness said ""He did' not know he had any grandchildren. > There is no doubt whatever about Ms mind. The old man does not know what he is- talking about. I have allowed Mrs Stephens a'good many things, but any further interference with an Imbecile like untie is in- tolerable." Witness now- said he did not think jfcus uncle was an imbecile, and in writing that he had overstepped the mark. Deceased was 91 years of age. Rev. D. Worthington, vicar of Llangeitho, said that deceased's memory was very active. He remembered in his youth a man named John Williams, who was a servant to John Rowlands, of Llangeithp. This John Williams, the deceased said, was very good in extempore prayer. There were several other witnesses, and the jary found that (1) the will was not properly executed (2) the deceased was not capable of making a will and (3) that deceased was subject to undue influence. Judgment was given against thcexecutors with costs, and the will of 1906 duly proved. The Assizes were adjourned until to-day (Thursday).
