From the Danville Gazette (Danville, Indiana) - issue of Thursday, January 14, 1915 - page 1, column 6:
Amanda Bryant is asking a jury to tax James Gipson $5,000 for remarks he is alleged to have made about her. The parties to the suit, which began yesterday afternoon, are from Washington Township. Amanda Bryant and her husband lived on the Gipson farm. She is attempting to show that her reputation suffered from stories which were circulated as to her character by Gipson. She alleges that he told her she was not fit to live with her husband and intimated that her character was bad. The case is a spicy one and there is a full attendance of spectators.
