ACTION AGAINST A CHESTER LADY. 0 A DISPUTED NURSING CLAIM. At the Rhyl County Court on Friday, before his Honour Sir Horatio Lloyd, Miss Sarah Emma Parry, 9, Alexandra-terrace, Chester, was sued (as the executrix of the will of the late Mrs. Jane Jones) by Mrs. Elizabeth Jane Brookes, Victoria-avenue, Prestatyn, for X22 lis. 6d. for attendance, nursing, washing, rent, coal, &c., due by the deceased (Mrs. Jones). The case for the plaintiff was that she rented rooms to the deceased and attended her for many months, as the old lady was suffering from cancer and heart disease. When Mrs. Jones died, the defendant sued plaintiff (her cousin) for 912 due to the deceased on a pro- missory note for furniture plaintiff had bought at her sale, but plaintiff replied that she had a much larger claim against the deceased's estate. Plaintiff eventually paid the £ 12 into court, and then entered a separate action against defendant, who had settled the case as far as everything was concerned except for nursing and attendance, in respect of which E2 was paid into court, leaving the claim at E17. Defendant declined to pay more than 22 for the cursing of the deceased. Plaintiff with the defendant benetited under Mrs. Jones's will, receiving the deceased's furniture. Defendant was called and said that the plaintiff did not let her know that deceased was very ill until a short time before she died. She did not con- sider that plaintiff had been required to nurse the deceased, and she swore that Mrs. Jones before her death said that she would have been better looked after in the workhouse. His Honour allowed the plaintiff 95, less the £2 paid into court.
