"The following are notices of MARITAL DESERTIONS in newspaper publications
From Geneva Gazette 4 January 1815
My Wife Elizabeth Witter, having for some time past refused to live with me, I hereby caution all persons having any dealings with her, or trusting her on my account.
Seneca Jan. 3, 1815
From Geneva Gazette 25 January 1815
TO THE PUBLIC
As EZRA WITTER saw fit to post his Wife, I think it my duty to let the public know what for. He took other women home, who talked very unbecoming, besides using very hard threats towards me. He likewise denied he had any wife, said he had women enough without me, and would not part with them but by reason of the disease which afterwards appeared to his shame. I thought it best to stay at my own place.
