Readers of the Daily News will remember the Martin divorce case, which agitated west side circles not long ago. Anson V. Martin filed a bill for divorce in the Circuit court, charging his wife, Annie L., with undue intimacy with Dr. Lyndall Lewellyn Davis, a well-known west side dentist.

To-day there was filed in the Superior court a bill for divorce by Annie L. Martin, charging her husband with deserting her November 20, 1890.

The story is that Mr. Martin still thinks a great deal of his wife and not wishing to air in courts the unpretty charges which he made against her in his bill will let her obtain a divorce on the grounds of desertion. Mrs. Martin asks the custody of their 4-year-old-girl. By a peculiar coincidence, the child’s first name is the same as the first name of Dr. Davis – Lyndall.”
