[Wed. May 7, 1902]
Notified U.S. Marshal that I did
not longer want Adam Johnson
to act as crier - see letter Book.
- one more of the gang gone.
Marshal demands name of the
party who told me that Adam
Johnson said things in contempt
of court & for which I required
him to remove him to other employ
=ment. My informant was
S. T. Jeffrys, one of the most
reputable lawyers at the bar, but
I shall not disclose it, for the
Marshal himself is even worse
than Johnson & does not deserve
my confidence in any respect.
