Letters From Stan - November 1947

lettersfromstan.com [cached]

Benjamin W. Shipman
Attorney and Counselor at Law FOURTH: I do hereby name and appoint BENJAMIN W. SHIPMAN to serve as executor of this, my Last Will and Testament, for the purpose of carrying out the terms and provisions hereof. BENJAMIN W. SHIPMAN, Executor BENJAMIN W, SHIPMAN, etc., et al. In that action I am seeking to recover my share of the earnings of STAN LAUREL, hereinafter referred to as STAN, in accordance with a support agreement made by STAN and me when we were first divorced in 1936. BENJAMIN W, SHIPMAN, hereinafter called BEN, was bitterly opposed to STAN'S remarriage to me. He kept harassing me by telephone at least thrice weekly. BEN took all of STAN's money and gave me virtually nothing, completely disregarding my rights as STAN's wife. BEN promised to pay me five percent of STAN's actual earnings without regard to the existence of a closed corporation which BEN had formed and in which he held a twenty percent interest, the remainder being equally divided between OLIVER HARDY and STAN. BEN paid my transportation to and from Las Vegas, Nevada, and one hotel room for me and my father. This was well known to BEN, who acted both as his attorney and his business manager. lONE SHIPMAN was BEN's secretary, both before and after her marriage to BEN, and was intimately involved in all his affairs. The great disparity between STAN's activities and consequent subsidiary rights and the small estate revealed by the inventory and appraisement filed by BEN confirmed my suspicions that BEN, probably over a long period of time, and more than likely with the connivance of lONE SHIPMAN, has been diverting or concealing STAN's earnings. Subsequently, this court made its order admitting his Will to probate and Letters Testamentary were issued on April 13, 1965, to Benjamin W. Shipman as Executor. From April 11, 1965 until his final discharge as Executor on account of illness so ordered on July 8, 1969, Benjamin W. Shipman administered said estate. The statutory fees of said attorney calculated upon amounts in the Inventory and Account of Benjamin W. Shipman as Executor, and in the Account included herein, amount to $2,015.39. Benjamin W. Shipman as Executor and your Petitioner as Administratrix-With-Will-Annexed, waived commissions as such. FINAL ACCOUNTING Your Petitioner as Administratrix-With-Will-Annexed is chargeable with amount received from Benjamin W. Shipman as Executor in the sum of: $45,095.02 Your Petitioner has received since her appointment as Administratrix-With-Will-Annexed the following: As shown by Final Accounting of Benjamin W. Shipman as Executor in his Petition to resign on account of illness, the settlement and appointment and payment of attorney fees was to be fixed, appointed and paid out at the time of the final Accounting and distribution of the estate.

Stan Laurel Letters | 1963

I never expected to make any great amount of revenue from it, so am not disappointed - the small percentage we do get is split three ways, Mrs Hardy, our attorney Ben Shipman & myself, the Author & Doubleday take the balance which does'nt amount to very much - I had hoped that Doubleday would have issued it in Paperback type at cheaper price, I think it would have done much better in the sales dept. it would have been in the reach of the L&H Fans - (The masses).

Mr Ben Shipman, my attorney, was kind enough to send me a copy of your recent letter to him in which you requested I drop you a note - hence these few lines.

I checked with my attorney Ben Shipman re the tape I made for the Academy Award radio coverage.
He advises me that he wrote to Vanessa Brown sometime ago in effort to get a copy of the tape, but to date has never heard from her. However, he gave me her address in case you would like to try & contact her: Vanessa Brown, 14340, Mulholland Drive, Los Angeles. 24. CALIF. I just had a card from Ben [Chadwell] - he had recd. the photo enlargement & was having a copy made from it for you, he tells me it will [be] in 'Pastels' !! finally L&H made the 'cheesecake' dept.!!. Again - regards & best to you all from us both here.
