J. E. Caldwell & Co., Have a Suit Against a Countess
Philadelphia, Pa., July 27.—Counsel for J. E. Caldwell & Co., have issued a foreign attachment from Common Pleas Court against the Countess Folchi-Vici, formerly Lily Macalester, and summoned the Fidelity Insurance and Safe Deposit Co. as trustee. Bail was placed at $849.50, and the action is brought to recover for a bill of jewelry, etc., aggregating half of that amount. The Countess Folchi-Vici is a granddaughter of the late Charles Macalester, who died shortly after the war, leaving a large fortune. His granddaughter, the Countess, lives in Italy and contracted the bill for jewelry while in this country about four years ago. Part of her income arises from a marriage contract trust of which the Fidelity Co. are trustee, and as the Countess but rarely visits this country, the only method possible to collect the bill is by making a claim for its payment out of this trust estate.
