large extent their lawful claims against the State of Vir-
ginia. A compromise was reached in 1892, when Mr.
Guigon resumed general practice and has devoted him-
self chiefly to corporation law. He assisted in the organ-
ization of the Richmond Telephone Co., and was general
counsel for that company for several years. Most of his
time for the last ten or fifteen years has been occupied in
the performance of his duties as general attorney of the
Virginia Railway & Power Co., although he has to some
extent kept up his general professional connection.

For many years he was counsel for the Richmond So-
ciety for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, having
prepared and procured the passage of the existing laws
in Virginia on that subject. As counsel for the Board of
Pharmacy for Virginia he procured the passage by the
Legislature of the general statute, which until 1907, con-
stituted the entire pharmacy law of Virginia. In a very
important murder case in one of the counties, where the
prisoners had been sent to Richmond jail for safe keeping,
he succeeded for the first time in the history of English
jurisprudence in procuring from the Supreme Court of
Appeals an order enlarging the writ of error and directing
that the prisoners should remain in the city of Richmond
until the further order of the Court, This action of the
Court was taken in order to prevent lynching. All three
of the accused were ultimately acquitted.

Mr. Guigon was several times elected to the council of
the city of Richmond. From 1891 to 1894 he was captain
on the staff of the First Regiment of Cavalry, Virginia
Volunteers. He has served as president of the Richmond
Bar Association and of the Richmond Chapter of the

Children :

523. ALICE STANDISH TABEB S (Emily H. Allen,* Fred-
erick 8. Allen, 3 Sarah 2 Hoidand, Gideon 1 ), daughter of
Edward S. and Emily H. (Allen) Taber, was born in New
Bedford, Nov. 23, 1862. She married Oct. 10, 1883, An-
drew Gray Weeks of Boston. Children :

581. i. ALLEN TABER, b. Dec. 13, 1884.

582. ii. ROSAMOND PIERCE, b. Oct. 9, 1887.

583. iii. KENNETH, b. Dec. 30, 1889; killed in battle, June 17,

1915, near Givenchy, France, while fighting for the
Allies.

The Foreign Legion of France has officially voted Mrs.
Alice S. Weeks of New Bedford as "Mother of the Regi-
ment," said a newspaper account in 1918. This signal
honor from this great fighting organization came to her
after two years of untiring devotion to American boys in
the Foreign Legion. During that time she has given them
a mother's care. They have lived in her Paris home when
on leave, and while in the trenches have received under-
wear, candy, tobacco, gas masks and other comforts.

It was the death of her idolized son, Kenneth Weeks,
who early joined the Legion, that decided his mother to
carry out her plan. She had followed him to France in
1915, had taken a house in Paris; but before her boy could
secure a furlough to come to Paris he was killed; she
never saw him again. To Mrs. Weeks, as "having lost a
splendid son in the French army, and who is now giving
to a great number of us other Americans in the war the
tender sympathy and help of a mother," James R. Mc-
Connell has dedicated his war book "Flying in France."

Friends of her son in the Foreign Legion aviation corps
and ambulance work came to Mrs. Weeks when on leave

in Paris. Her home and its influence expanded into a sort
of a club, and her extraordinary understanding of young
men found a large field without losing its personal char-
acter. She wrote to them at the front and sent them
necessary comforts. They got depending on her as if she
were their mother. The folks back home also depend upon
her to keep them informed as far as possible.

As the number increased she was obliged to form a lit-
tle society under the name of "The Home Service for
American Soldiers Abroad." Among its directors were
Theodore Roosevelt, Bishop William Lawrence, Dr. Mor-
ton Prince, Major Henry L. Higginson, John J. Chapman
of New York and Ralph Adams Cram, the noted archi-
tect. American headquarters were opened in Boston and
the executive committee included some of Boston's best
known persons. When the Americans went to France,
Mrs. Weeks secured a villa at Aix-le-Bains, thus main-
taining two units of home service for American soldiers.
For many months the entire expense was defrayed by
Mrs. Weeks.

In the summer of 1918 the work was absorbed by the
Red Cross.
