Description: Confessed Adultery. COLLINS, PERCY, TRAVIS

Date: November 21 1875

Newspaper published in: Cairo, Illinois

Rev. COLLINS, a Methodist clergyman of Princerville, Peoria county, Ill., asks the Peoria Circuit Court for a divorce from Mrs. COLLINS, accusing her of adultery with a man named E. D. PERCY. Last summer Collins was tried by the church on a charge of adultery with a Miss Mary TRAVIS, PERCY being his chief accuser and most persistent persecutor. The investigations led to the acquittal of COLLINS. His wife having confessed to a violation of the marriage vows, it is reasonable to suppose that the divorce will be granted, and that Mrs. COLLINS will, as is usual in such cases, be considered a "bad crowd" and forced to run down rapidly in the moral scale unless rescued and whitewashed by a marriage with PERCY.
