From The Zucker Story:

"On the 23rd August 1892 Ellen Zucker submitted a petition for divorce, citing her husband's desertion on the 1st July 1888 "without giving me any explanation whatever and I had not the slightest reason for his leaving me and the said Respondent has not returned to me." She further stated that she had not seen or heard of her husband since that date "with the exception of a letter dated on the day of his desertion in the Respondent's handwriting which was I believe sent through the post to the Thomas Tollis my sister's husband which letter appears to have been posted at Waverley according to the postmark on the envelope. ..."

Dear Thomas

By the time you read these few lines I will be no more I am disgraced and I cannot face it out Oh if I had only told Nell when she asked me what was the matter with me I might have been spared this but no the gambling had to strong a hold upon me and I woud have another try on Monday morning well I went with a full pocket and had not been there more than three hours before I was ruined and then I was driven to do this because I could not face it out.

In deep distress Charlie

Goodbye to all I am ruiined think not of me as I am not worthy rell my dear Nell not to fret over me as I am not worthy a thought but to look and then there is poor Herb - poor boy Thomas look after Herb and Nell.

Distressed and ruined Charlie

It was noted that "no evidence ever came to light to prove that the said respondent did make away with himself as he had so stated his intention of doing". Nell stated that she had made numerous enquiries amongst her husband's relations, namely his mother, brothers and sisters and amongst his friends, she and his mother had advertised for him in the newspapers, but there had been no response. The divorce papers were then served on Carl's mother, Charlotte, on the 23rd September 1892, and advertisements placed in the newspapers notifying the action that was taken, giving Carl 21 days to appear. On the 18th October a date was set for the hearing on the 16th November, at which time a decree nisi was granted for dissolution of the marriage. The decree absolute was granted on 22nd February 1893, giving Ellen full custody of their son.
