HEART BALM: From the Walton Reporter, July 1, 1922: The case of Irene Lent versus Lawrence Budine to recover damages for alleged breach of promise, formerly slated for trial at this term of Delhi court, has been settled by mutual agreement without further litigation. The case grew out of an affair between Lawrence Budine of Walton, and Irene Lent of Cornwall-on Hudson. Lawrence, it is said, was bestowing, freely, his affections upon the receptive Miss Lent, with the ultimate result that a future marriage was arranged for by the two. At a later time and before the carrying out of former plans, Mr. Budine decided upon a change of affections and was accordingly married to Mrs. Hazel Lakin of Walton. Miss Lent, at hearing of this, at once arrived at the decision that nothing short of the payment of a few hundred dollars to her by Budine would possibly heal the heart wound caused by the alleged falsity of Budine. Suit was accordingly instituted and the case came to trial in Delhi court, where the jury decided that the proper heart balm was $1700.50. The case was appealed and was coming into court on the present calendar, for the third time. But now the case is settled and Walton rejoices that her native son and prominent businessman is again free. Besides, four hundred dollars is somewhat different than $1700.50.
Cigar smoking Lawrence "Uncle Butch" owned businesses in Walton, was a guard at Scintilla in Sidney and ran Budine's Taxi service in Walton with his wife Hazel for several years.
