"There simply are no old unsettled estates In England of any size and there Is not the slightest possibility of successfully questioning tho settlement of any that was effected a number of years ago. "Therefore tho prlma facie presumption with regard to any persoi who solicits funds with which to prosecute such cases Is that that person Is a swindler engaged In operating a confidence game."
