The display head under which the communication appeared, made plain the impression left upon this famous newspaper man by the woman whom heirs-at-law and interested lawyers are trying to have it appear is unable to look after her private affairs and incompetent to manage her own estate, and are asking a court to appoint them, or some one or ones of their choosing, to take charge of her money and other property and manage it for her.
