Illinois In the Superior Court Cook County
To the Honorable Francis Wright, Judge, holding a branch of said Court:
The undersigned Salome Wiedemann respectfully represents unto your Honor that she is a resident of said
and is the complainant in the above entitled Cause. That on the 28th day of June 1892 there was entered in the above entitled cause by you honor, a final decree granting the complainant divorce from the defendant and enjoining the defendant from entering being or remaining in any house or upon any premises in which the complainant might thereafter be in lawful possession, or in any manner interfering with the complainant. But not withstanding said injunction said defendant did on the 29th day of June 1892 return to the defendant’s house in a drunken condition, and demand admittance. When refused, he threatened the life of the complainant and finally went to sleep in complainants room, and that he still remains around the complainants house in violation of said injunction. Cook County
Wherefore complainant prays that the defendant may be ruled to have cause why he should not be attached for contempt of court.
[signature] Salomé WiedemannA contempt of court injunction was filed on July 1, 1892 and it appears Gottfried finally got the message as we don't hear about or from him from that day forward.
