It appears that, tbe husband bad aa
adopted daughter who was married, and
gradually be absented bisaself from bin '
own house until, at last, be resided per

other two for damages for tbe loss of hia
company and society. Upon demurrer
the Court ruled that tbe action would not
lie as against her husband, but her right
of action against those who drew away ;
and harbored her husband was indispu

tice that if they harbor husbands they
are liable to the wives for damages. : ,
