[Sun. June 8, 1902]
Steamer "Sadie" in from St
Micheal - no news or mail. Wrote
letters to Darrell & Mother.
Marshal Richards & friends furious about
my decision & threatening - Sullivan is
also - He does not know that I asked
McGinn to leave him out of prosecution!
Am sending Atty General full statement
of the case - Percy Parkinson goes
out with it - also to look after Assoc.
Press dispatches - I am going to
defend myself against blackmail!
Called Richards & Jourden for sentence
today - but upon application the matter
goes over till Wednesday - they to
file their motion for a new trial today
& affidavits by that time. They are
preparing to attack me, so I am
told, upon the old trouble of 1888.
Well, I must meet it with fortitude
and courage for it must come sooner
or later - if I shrink from duty on
account of that threat it proves
that I am unworthy to be a judge
