He was fickle minded – The Montreal Gazette Jul. 17, 1891

Messrs. Geurin & Feron, as lawyers for Miss Julia Shea, have taken action in the Superior court against Mr. Daniel Phelan for ten thousand dollars for alleged breach of promise of marriage. When the case comes up for trial some interesting developments are expected, as the plaintiff states in her declaration that she has been engaged to defendant for two years under promise of marriage, and that he, moreover, made all arrangements for the wedding, which was to have taken place at St. Patrick’s church on Tuesday last; but on Sunday he changed his mind, for what reason she does not say.
