Lieutenant Greaves, replying to Mr. Isaacs, said he first became acquainted with Miss Amy Webster about August, 1905. She was then on the stage. On March 15, 1906, they were married the Fulham Registry Office. For some time Mrs. Greaves occupied a flat at Twyford mansions, which was provided by witness. The marriage was kept secret, because witness was in difficulty about announcing it, having regard to the position he occupied in his regiment.

During the time he was away they corresponded regularly, and in affectionate terms.

Mr. Percy Hill, assistant manager of the Hotel Metropole, Brighton, said knew Mr. Wood and also the respondent. They had been guests at the hotel on several occasions.

The President: Very well, there must be a decree.

Sir Edward Canon asked that there should be no order as to costs against the co-respondents; there was no allegation that it was known that respondent was married woman.

The President made no order as to costs.

Mr. Isaacs: I think your lordship ought to know that some provision had been made for the wife, and also with reference the furniture of the flat she occupies.
