She says that during their married life he became very familiar with other women and she names one of them. She says that as a result he is suffering from a loathesome disease. She alleges that he failed to support her and their child and that he cursed her and called her vile names. She says that she was forced to work to support them. She asks custody of their two year old child. The parties were married the 26th of April, 1920, and separated the first of January, 1924.
