Taylor v. Gwyn


To the Editor of The Times

In the report of this case and in the articles thereon in The Times respectively on the 6th and 7th inst. there is a slight error which I should be glad to correct. The article states, "After the murder of Mr Jermy and his son, the heir of the Jermy estates, was a girl, age 13, the daughter of the younger victim. After growing to womanhood and marrying, that owner of the estate died also, 'leaving a daughter', who is still under age." The words should be, 'leaving a son.' The present infant heir of the Jermy estates is a boy.

I am your obedient servant,
One of the trustees of the Jermy estates
