GILLETTE MURDER TRIAL
Fathetlc Love Letters of Dead Woman
Read in Court.
Herkimer, N. Y., Nov. 21. In the
trial of Chester Gillette for tho mur
der of Graco Brown, his sweetheart,
District Attorney Ward took up the
thread of his story at tho homo of
tho Brown family In South Otsellc,
whore the girl spent tho three weeks
preceding her clandestine departure
with Gillette -for the Adlrondacks.
Tho district attorney had Just fin
ished the letters that passed between
Graco Brown and Chester Glllctto dur
ing the past year and a more pathetic
recital wob never given in a court
room. Tho letters were love letters,
but they were more than that. In
them Grace Brown set down aTl her
fears, dread and anguish, and there
was scarcely a dry eye In the court
room when tho womanly, simple, but
eloquent letters, that seemed to como
from tho grave, had been finished by
tho prosecutor. Day after day tho
pretty, but plain, little country girl
pleaded in her letters for Gillette to
stand by her in her trouble and when
his replies seemed cold and unassur
ing she would appeal to his manhood,
chiding him, only to ask his pardon in
the next sentence.
Tho reading of tho letters appeared
to arouse tho crowd In court and when
the prisoner was led out after ad
journment thero was a great crowd
blocking tho way to the jail. Six po
licemen surrounded the prisoner to
ward off possible attempts to injure
him by oxcited bystanders.
