Genl. Drain, Dave Wilson &
J. M. Frink in town.
Wrote letter to Clarke, Ch. Judicary
Com. today - defence against Lena
Walton - Marshal Richards charge.
After writing letter showed it to
Piles who suggested a change - made
the change & gave the letter to Clarke.
Did this so that the case could be
heard on Monday without delay.
I am now in real doubt
about the outcome of my case.
If Spooner goes against me
I will have a slim show &
will lose courage because he
is - or ought to be an unprejudiced
juror and Nelson would be
so encouraged with his being
against me that he could easily
get enough more to do me up -
Gave Walter Clarke letters
of Nelson & he will see Knox &
try & get him to show Spooner
the truth. Piles is to see him too.
