    Ex-congressman William A. Sackett died suddenly yesterday noon at his residence on Franklin Square, Saratoga. Despite his age he has enjoyed robust health. He was a member of the Thirtieth and Thirty-first Congresses, and his ability as a lawyer and public speaker was recognized throughout the State of New-York. He was born near Auburn, Cayuga County, Nov. 18, 1811, and was a son of William and Parthena Sackett, who were natives of Connecticut. William A. Sackett was reared near Auburn, receiving his education in select schools and Aurora Academy, and then he read law with Judge Luther F. Stephens of Seneca Falls. In 1831 he was admitted to the bar at Utica. He practiced his profession at Seneca Falls until 1848. In this year Mr. Sackett was elected to Congress to represent the Seneca and Wayne district. At the close of his Congressional term, Mr. Sackett moved to Saratoga Springs, which place had been his residence up to the time of his death. Since living in Saratoga he had never engaged in general practice, although he continued for several years to act as counsel in the celebrated Spike suit, which was brought by the Burdens of Troy, and which occupied the attention of the courts for a great many years. He was Register in Bankruptcy several years. He had been married three times, and has three living children. His third marriage was in 1876, when he wedded Mary Louise Marvin, the daughter of the late Judge Thomas J. Marvin of this village, who survives."

    Copyright, 1925, by The New York Times Company.
    By Wireless to The New York Times.
    London, Sept. 1.—Colonel Holland S. Duell of New York, formerly a State Senator, was married here today to Miss Emilie Brown of New York, a member of a prominent St. Louis family. Colonel Duell served in the World War as major of the Thirtieth Field Artillery, Seventy-seventh Division, succeeding to the command of his regiment in reserve. He won the Distinguished Service Cross for gallantry in action.
    His father was the late Charles Holland Duell of New York, Commissioner of Patents under President McKinley, and Justice of the Court of Appeals during Roosevelt's Administration.
    The bride served in France during 1915 as a volunteer nurse in the American Hospital for French wounded at St. Valery en Caux and the French officers' hospital St. Jean de Dieu, Paris. In 1918 she assisted in the active management of the Duryea War Relief Fund, and received a decoration from the French Government.
    Colonel and Mrs. Duell will reside in New York, where he is engaged in the practice of patent law.
    Announcement of the wedding marks the first public announcement of the divorce of Mr. Duell and his first wife. The former Mrs. Duell, who was Miss Mabel Halliwell, obtained a divorce from her husband in Westchester County, the first decree being handed down on Aug. 25. Their four children, the Misses Helen and Harriet Anne Duell and Charles H. and Holland S. Duell Jr., are with their mother at their country place, Ardenwold, Yonkers, N.Y. Their New York residence is at 167 East Sixty-fourth Street.
    Mr. Duell is a brother of Charles S. Duell, who sued Lillian Gish, the motion picture actress, to restrain her from breaking a contract he held with her. His other brother is William Sackett Duell, who brought suit against him on Aug. 7 after a dispute over the control of the Klauber-Weldon Company. As Holland Duell left the court on this occasion he was served with a summons in a suit for $400,000 damages brought by his brother.
    In 1922 when he was a State Senator, Mr. Duell was rated as the "ablest, most constructive and most independent" member of the Legislature in the annual review of the session for that year."
