Another in our series of new transcriptions of contemporary articles on the Leo Frank case.
August 7th, 1913
Mrs. J. W. Coleman, mother of Mary Phagan, followed Dr. Harris to the stand. She told of cooking an amount of cabbage at the chemists request for his experiments with the four men.
She stated that it had been ground finely as she had prepared it on the day of Mary’s last meal and had boiled it for an hour. She remained on the stand but for a few minutes and was asked but a few questions by either the state or defense.
She was asked to describe Mary’s pocketbook answering that she had already given a description when she first went upon the stand at the opening of the trial.
