Notes / Description: 

M. E. Berry sued through her mother, Ruth A. Solly, as next friend. R.A. Solly and E.L. Berry married in 1896 and M.E. Berry was their daughter. They divorced in 1905 on the grounds of infidelity. Solly filed to gain the means and station in life that M.E. Berry is entitled to from her father due to Solly being unable to properly provide for her and support her education on her own.
