Notes / Description: 

2 folders. The wife filed for divorce claiming: willful & malicious desertion; abandonment & failure to provide; and cruel & inhuman treatment. The wife reported that, even on their honeymoon to Florida and Cuba, her husband was cruel and irritable. "Your petitioner on one occasion waved her handkerchief at a group of Cuban soldiers, whereupon the defendant in a very rude and angry manner told her that she ought not to pay any attention to men in that manner." It's unclear if the couple had any children.
