The Splkln? Party at Island So. 10.
To the ISflitor National Tbibtok:
In your-issuo of October IS, I read, in com
mon with jay conrrudes, an article with tho
above heading and elpnod by L. Steele, claim
ing to le a member of the Thirtieth Illinois.
In it ho placed the credit of tliat dashing ac
tion t the Twouty-taslh Illinois inmntry,and
mentioned one Jacob tiraee as having assisted
in spiking tke guns. I was justly indignant
at tbo nuetake or misstatement, whichever it
was, and for that rasm, together with the
fact that the "little affitir " has never received
proper tremtniont at the lianas of war writers,
I am inclined to ask space in Thb Teixczoj
for a reliable and truthful statement of that
night's work. For coolness and daring in exe
cution, the spiking of the guns of tho upper
battery of fefctnd No. 10 was not excelled by
anv sinete act of Hie war, naloss it be the de
struction ot the ram Albemarle, by Lioutonaut
W. B. Gushing, of the navy, and I feel that
justfee should at length be done to all those
concerned in it.
In the spring of 1802, daring the latter part
of the month of March, Commodore Fooic, with
liis float of punbeate and mortars, was lying on
the Jfuashvsippi Siver some dibtauce above Isl
and No. 3tf. Ke basied himselt in shelling the
ibland and thcsliere batteries on the Kentucky
side. Jost above the island itself tho river
makes a hharp turn, and at theolbow the reb
els had planted tiieir mot formidable battery,
bo situUl s to rake jhe snnboatB from ihe
stern their most vulnerable point thus ren
dering " naming by " almost an impossibility.
Tliis battery mounted six guns, one being of
very large caliber, some ten or twelve feet
loHg,and was Commodore Foote's most dreaded
obg&icte i his passage down stream. Know
ing this fact, Colonel Roberts and Major Wal
wor ii. of the Forty-second Illinois infantry,
6Bggied that a roeonnAiSBfcnce be made to dis
covt i soe snode f silencing the gans.
Tne:- v ere sent forward upon this duty. At
lite tiii" tlte river was quite fcijrli. mnning
over ilH .make in many places, and the two
offii- jn ..cwaiied by two or throe sharp
sh..t Tb u 1 a small baai and made their
waj tLroak the brush, under the shore, close
in U Uii battery being in direct range of the
gaia aid "cbore succeeded in gaining a rough
plan of the situation. They ioand that the
fort was at night guarded by only a few senti
nels, the main body of troops nearly a bri
gade being on a flat-boat, wwue two or three
htra&red yayds back of the battery. On return
ing frm& his snout, Colonel Boberts proposed
to7 Oojunwdore Footeand General N. B. Buford,
wai wnnmaudod the troojis npon the trans
port to capture this battery, and, after great
reluctance on tiBeir part, Mieeeeded in gaining
xher consent t what was then considered al
most an impossibity.
Oa the night of the 30th, I, as second lien
tenant, was in command of company A, Forty
eoond Illinois, and was on picket all night
upn the Missouri side of Hie river. When,
the next morning, we came in, Colonel Roberts
catnc to roe and ordered that the company be
given &H the rest jwssibl e that day, as he wish ed
them for special service that night, and told me
to report, with tliem, at his headquarters at 6
p.m. We understood that something was up,
thou, for wernow him to be of reckless bravery
and very ambitious, and company A was always
picked oat for every desperate service. On tho
evening of she 31st, therefore, we were on baud
and were immediately taken on board the Sob
2JoyT a miserable old tub of a steamboat, which
all the boys wiJI remember, and were Eteatned
dowa to the gunboat Benton, then the Com
modore's Hagship. Here the colonel was in
formed that he coald have only five yawls for
use on the expedition ; these being furnished
(one caahjfrom the gunboats Benton, St. Louis,
CarondeJet, Mound City, and one other, whose
name I have forgotten. These boats would
carry but eight soldiers and ten oarsmen each,
and, open learning this fact, Colonel Boberts
ordered, me to select from tbecoinpauy foity
of tho best taon for the purpose. 1 found the
only way to de was to lake the largest, so I be-

Having &usgot in shape for the start, one
man .ftp each boat was furnished with some
xat-tafl files and a hammer, with special in
fctruetious that, so soon as the bow of the boat
liewa in touched the breastwcrk3,liis duty
was to jump for the shore, hunt a gun, jam in
the fiks, hummer them down, and then break
t&'ein off m the vent. They were not to pay
zmty attention to any fighting going on about
them. Then, with the Beaton yawl, com
manded by CoL Eoberts, in. the lead, and the
SuXonfe, commanded by Lieut. Davis, follow
ing, we dropped down the stream. The sky
was dark and threatening and the wind came
against us in gusts. Heavy thunder douds
wore pushing up in the west, and the low mut-,
teringsf thunder propheaed a storm. It was
bo Irfack that the glimmer of the water was
scarcely vwible. Keeping close in toward the
haftt, auder the bashes, with muflled oars,
we drifted down with the cuireut. No one

IN FRONT OF ATLANTA.
Tbc Fightins Xot all Lone by the 12th nail lGth
To the Editor Katioxal TniurrxE:
With your permission I would like to correct
some errors in Comrade Walker's communica
tion in regard to the 21ot and 22d of July in
front of Atlanta, which appeared in The Tkib
rxE of October 11th, and also criticise some of
his statements. His description of the charge
of the First brigade on the 21st is nearly cor
rect, except that one brsgado commander, Gen.
Force, was not wounded that day. I will give
full particulars further on.
Comrade Walker's claim that the Twelfth
and Sixteenth Wisconsin regiments Eaved tho
day on the 22d is an exaggeration. The day
would have been saved just the same if those
two regiments had not been on the fidd. It is
a slur on the Army of the Tennessee to set up
sudi a claim. Your two regiments, Comrade
Walker, for which, you claim so .much, did not
man the works on Bald Hill, as I will be able
to bbow. Bald Hill was on. a ridge, extending
nortii and south the bald psrfc a cleared fidd,
only about 200 yards wide from north and
south. After the charge on tho Twenty-first,
when tho brigade deployed into line, the
Twelfth and Sixteenth regiments went north
into the woods, the Twentieth and ThirLy
iirst Illinois regiments occupying the works on
Bald Hill, and reaching from the woods on the
north to the woods on the south. The Thir
tictii Illinois mo-ed into the woods south of
llu , to ascertain its exact locality, and then a
3r "g.ic way" pad from boat to boat, and we

Kw. a few wordB regarding tlie result. This
was tSie key which unlocked the whole situa
tion, for on different ntghth after this the St.

up&n one side and a tag on the other, Bucceoded
in ruttNiag the battenos which remained. The
first night the boats received a saluteof thirty
ix shot, and on Ue-socoid seventy-two, none
of which touched thorn. As a result of this,
Gan. Poe at Kow iladrid succeeded in flank
ing the nrijolfi, cutting off their escape aud tak
ing some seven or oight thousand prisoners
and over Italf a million dollars worth, of war
2So w, what I wisn to establish is, Who spiked
the guns at IsUnd No. 10. Your writer of
twe wocks ago says men of the Twenty-sixth
Hlino'is did, and I say that the spikes were
driven, to the best of my recollection, by Fred
A.Atwater, WiH FolJoit, Sain Pratt, John Tole,
and Champ Lester or Geo. Cook, all of com
ony A, Forty-second Illinois infantry, 3nd
every man present, except the sailors, belonged
to that regiment. To sustain my position, I
refer to our regimental reports nosv on file at
Washington, D. C; to Lieut-Gen. Sheridan, who
We -acqHainied with the facts; to CoL N. H.
the fidd, the right of company A resting just
at the edge of the fidd aud joining the Thirty
first regiment. These three regiments fronted
nearly w:st; the works occupied by the
Thirty-first deflected to the southwest.
On the right of the Twentieth regiment, ad
joining the woods, a small fort was constructed,
with three embrasures on the north and one
west, and battery D, Second Biinois artillery,
(McABiiter's battery of four 24-pounder how
itzers,) placed iu it This fort was in the shape
of a horse shoe, with the tos to the west aud
was not xnore than thirty or forty feet wide ia
the widest place. In rear of the fort was a
short piece of work thrown up to protect a
company of infantry supporting the guns.
Soon after General ilePkerson passed us, go
lug south, the Thirtieth was ordered to move
back to the fort, and formed on the north side
of it, fronting" south. We could see rebel in
fantry crossing the open fields a few hundreds
yards east of ns, and. some hard fighting was
being done there. Oar regiment was losing a
good many men by bills coming from that di
rection, and General Force called for the flag of
our regiment to be placed ou the fort, so that our
forces would know we were still there. Ju3fe
at this time bis adjutant-general, Capt Walker,
had his thigh broken, near the kin. Gen. Force
got a handkerchief from one of my company
anumaue a ugauiru mr iuu muu iu prevent
fatal hemorrhage. Just as he straightened up
he was shot through the face. He was picked
up by members of my company, and the first
words he sjioke were: "Teli the colonel of the
Twelfth Wisconsin to take commaud of the
brigade." The Thirtieth regiment was now
ordered to occupy the works vacated by Hie
Thirty-first, that regiment having been sent to
some other part of the field. We just had time
to get into position, when the rebels came
charging across the same ground over which
we had charged the previous day. e brought
them to a haltbefore they reached us, and back
they went into the woods to reform and gather
frith courage. Twice more they charged in

what became of thcin.

was one more of the boys left. Ho says he

answer to that name. I am always ready to
accommodate a comrade when I can, and I
think 1 know Comrade Waifce, from tho posi
tion he was in at Bottom's Bridge (in the rear
of Colonel Onderdonk and Major Wheclen).
Thai certainly was a nasty place, comrade, for
a few minutes. Ono of tho boys of my company
had his head shot oft there, and I think he
rode from fifty to seventy-five yards before ho
fell from his horse.
I am glad to know Comrade Waite is a reader
of The Tsibuste ; hone ho will continue to bo.

General Brady and General Jones.
To the Editor National Teibune :
I see, iu your issue of October 18th, Comrado
Tillford Dagger, of the One Hundred and Six
teenth Indiana, tells how General Sam Jones
gobbled up a wagon train.
Comrade Dagger says ho is willing to bo
corrected. Now, I was present on that occa
sion, and I think I know more about that
oiiair than one who was not there.
In tho first place, Lougstreet's whole army
was driving theXJnion forcesback toward Knox
ville. At Bean Station and ali along the re
treating line our forces were contending for
every inch of ground. The One Hundred and
Seventeenth Indiana regiment wus stationed
in Clinch Mountain Gap and on the top of the
mountain. Kow.it is'not likely that Long
street would send General Sam Jones across
Clinch Mountain with a corporal's guard to
capture a wagon train in the face of two or
three regiments. If they knew the wagou
train was there, they must have known of the"
presence of the One Hundred aud Sixteenth,
as well as the One Hundred and Seventeenth
regiment. This attack was made very late iu
tho evening. He says they were in support
ing distance, but they failed to support He
says they were aroused at midnight. I don't
know what disturbed them at that hour of
night, for everything was very quiet then.
Colonel Brady did the most that could have
been done at that time. It soon grew so dark
that we could not see how to fire, except at the
blaze of each other's guns, and in a short time
firing ceased altogether. As we were on the
top of the mountain, we could see the armies on
both sides of the mountain. Jone3' brigade, or
division, built fires, and that gave us the advan
tage of seeing their numbers and position, and
we knew if we did not get out of there that
night we would not have any show in the
morning. When everything became quiet,
Colonel Brady undertook to take his regimeut
out of the perilous situation it was in. Tho
Johnnies had no idea we could get out the way
we did. With orders that no command bo givon
except in low breath, we climbed, crawled,
and slid all night on the very top of the moun
tain, and at daj'ligbt we went down ou the
east side of the mountain, just in front of the
enemy. Brady reported, I think, to Colond
Gilbert, commanding a brigade or division in
theTwenty-third Army Corps, and we went in
the skirraibh-line all dav without a bife to eat.
That night our army fell back, but afterwards
were re-enforced, and drove the Johnnies back.
Now, I want to say that I don't think Gen
eral Brady was ever censured by anyone ex
cept the boys of the One Hundred and Six
teenth, who smdled tho bacon and crackers as
that train passed along. People may think
they are privileged to talk about General
Brady now, or intimate that he was nolr'brave,
but a cooler and braver man thau he never
drew a sword. The One Hundred and Six
teenth regiment could not help being a good
one, because it was commanded by that glorious
old warrior, Kise. Kise was my colonel when
we were in the glorious old Tenth.

where there was enough water to have a glori

without whoe will nothing happens, however
stranRe ami incomprehensible it may seem to uic
that the all-knowing- God who knows my inno
cence should -let me suffer. Still, I bow my head
submissively and say, with Christ: "Thy will be
done." The second is, that God, hi Hid own
time and pleasmo, will establish my innocence
and deal with those who have perjured themselves
as they deserve. The third is, thnfc I consider my
self a victim to satisfy just such as you who cry

WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
the same way, but with no better succcss,-
they were repulsed with heavy loss.
THE last ditch.
The battery at the fort changed front, and
did some Hpieadid work with shell and canis
ter, at short range. After the third charge it
was- compasativdy quiet on our part of tho
line for nearly an hour. During this time the
rebels had got a battery ia position on our lelt,
which enfiladed the line of the Twentieth, and
Thirtieth regiments, aud opened with canister.
A few rounds was fcuiheient to convince every
one that we could not remain, there longer.
The left of our regiment, whfdh vas sufieriug
terribly, was already in some j5pnfUiion, and
the men wore commencing to nidVenorth to the
fort, not in a panic, but sullen and determined,
and ready to reform at the first available place,
which they did on the north side of the furt
Just as tho Thirtieth regiment began leaving
their works the rebels made their fourth charge,
and, of course, got the works of the Twentieth
and Thirtieth, and reached the fort as soon as
we did, aud formed iu hordes on the south side.
They planted three flags on the fort and two
on the short piece f work in the rear. Only
ono rebel came inside of the fort, and he was
killed within ten feot of the north side. TKe
battery had been withdrawn befoio the last
charge was made.
Now, I want it distinctly understood that
theTwentieth and Thirtieth Illinois regiments
occupied the works on Bald Hill that day, and
wore the last troops to be driven in, as we held
our position till 5 o'clock p. m., or later. Every
thing on our left had been driven back as
much as two hours before, and it was by some
one's blunder that we were left there. Wo
should have been moved back to tho fort and
formed fronting south, and extended east, as
was done later in tho day.
Comrade Walker says: "Every eye was
turned on the Wisconsin regiments, the last
obstacle iu tho way of that immense column,"
&c Not quite so fast, comrade; the Twentieth
and Thirtieth regiments had to bo driven back
or annihilated before tlie Wisconsin regiments
were reached, and when wo were driven back
we reformed at the fort, which was still be
tween your position and the advancing rebels.
The Thirtieth Illinois lost their colors in the
the last charge, but no regiment in tho division
did better work, even after that, as our heavi
est loss in killed aud wounded was sustained at
the fort. We lost one half our regiment in
kilied, wounded, and missing. I do not know
the percentage of loss in the Twentieth Illinois,
but there were only twenty men of that regi
ment to bo found tho next morning.
No charge was made on the Twentieth and
and Thirtieth regiments from our front, but a
heavy skirmish line advanced after the battle
commenced and aunoyed us some, but we inado
it hot for them between charges. We were
shelled all the afternoon by two of their bat
teries west of us, but they did their own men
more damage than ours. One of their shells
that fell among their men on tho south side of
the fort did fearful execution, and almost cre
ated a panic. I would like to know why our
battery (battery D) was withdrawn before the
last charge was made. I would- also liko to

Escaped With Him.
To the Editor National Teebune:
I wa3 one of the Andersonville prisoners,
and seeing a number of letters in your valu
able paper in regard to prison experience, has
awakened old recollections, and I would like
to know if there is any way to reach, through
these letters, either or both prisoners that es
caped with me oa December 5, 1S51, by jump
ing from the cars on tho Gulf Railroad, near a
station called Naylor, in Georgia. Ono of the
men's name is J. C. Bird. He belonged to the
Eighth Michigan cavalry, if I remember right,
and was taken prisoner at Jonesboro', Ga.
The other was named Turner, and belonged to
a Michigan or a Wisconsin infantry regiment
His first name I have forgotten. If, after these
long years, I could hear of either, it would, in
deed, be a pleasure, and I hope that thi3 letter
will reach their eyes.
I bdonged myself to the Seventy-fifth Ohio
mounted infantry, and was captured at Gains
ville, Fia., while on a raid, iu jx fight which
lasted from daylight till afternoon, and, with
a number of others, was taken up through
Tallahassee to the State arsenal, on the banks
of the Chattahoochee, where we had no place
to sleep except on tho bare brick pavement
While there 1 paid $7 in greenbacks for a piece
of cornbread three inches wide, six inches
long, and about one inch thick, and divided it
between three of us.
Seven dollars of Confederate money was then
worth $1 in greenbacks, making $49 in their
money which I paid for tho cornbread. From
the arsenal we were taken up to Andersonville,
and before we were put into the stockade were
stripped by order of Wirz and searched for
money, as thoy told us it was the custom.
Most of tho men had plenty of money, having
been paid for six months' service tho night be
fore starting on tho raid. Would it not bo jus
tice to those men to give them a small pension
for their losses and suffering in Andersonville
aud other prisons? All those stolen greenbacks
have been redeemed in gold. I was too sharp for
them myself, having hid my money while they
were searching my clothes, so I don't speak for

others, sent back to Andersonville, by way of
Thomasville.and fell in with Bird and Turner.
I told Bird my plans to escape, and asked his
company, which was very readily granted. We
were overheard by Turner, who was all crippled
up with scurvy, aud he said ho would like to
go with us, but feariug ho could not stand such,
a trip we objected. Wo were so crowded to
gether iu cattlo cars that there was ouly sUnd
Mjsterioas Search to which Wilson's
mand IVas Subjected.
To the Editor National Tribune:
I notice inyour issue of October 18 an inquiry
from Samuel Shafer, company D, Fiist Ohio
cavalry, about "A Mysterious Search" that
took place in April, 16G3, throughout General
Wilson's command at Macon, Ga. I remember
that search very well, and I will give him the
story of that affair, as wo of tho Second division
saw it, and as it is told in tho history of tho Seventy-second
regiment, Indiana volunteers (p.
597), which is as follows :
April 28. Kcveille this morning at 2:30 o'clock,
and ordered to get ready to march immediately.
A little strange we had heard nothing of it before.
Nobody 1? new where wc were going; but rumor
said back to Montgomery. "We hud breakfast at
daylight, and at sun up the bugle blew strike tents.
We had just got our bunks well up aud our quar
ters cleaned nicely, and it worried us much to leave
them. After the usual amount of fussing-and cuss
ing, we moved out about 1) a. m., went back on tho
Columbus road, three miles west of the eity'to the
Tobesofkce Creek, and found all our trains parked
in a small field awaiting us. "We turned off tho
road and mussed in the little field in column by
companies, and the first thing we knew there was
a chain-guard clear around the field, and we heard
the command "Stand to your horses," and were
forbidden to stir. The teamsters were all placed
under guard. This made the stragglers and pil
lagers open their eyes, and therogue3and thieves
to swear. It was the sharpest thing we ever saw
done. To think that an urmy of 13,000 men could be
taken so completely by surprise, and not a single
private soldier know a thing of it. Thus far every
thing had worked to a "T," and we give our offi
cers credit fordoing the sharpest thing ever under
taken. It now turned out that during tho recent fires
in the city some rogues had taken advantage of
them and had broken open the bank of Macon and
stolen a vast amount of specie nud other valuables,
and this method was taken to find the treasure. It
further transpired that the whole army had moved
on different roads just as avo hud, und all were
thoroughly searched. We understand the idea of
the search was originated by General Upton, and
some of the stolen property recovered from tho
men of his division. But we are glad to announce
that nothing valuable was found on any member
of the Seventy -second. After the search was all
over, we moved rgbt back to our old camp, where
we arrived at 2 p. m., hungry as wolves, nnu in
various moods as to our march to Montgomery and
The Second division of General Wilson's Cav
alry Corps was commanded by General Eli
Long, until he was wounded at Selma, Ala.,
when the command fell to R. G.Minty, colonel
of the Fourth Michigan cavalry.
I also notice in theisame issue of your noble
paper that Comrade E. McDonald, Union City,
Mich., is afraid that Wilder's brigade wants to
claim all the credit -of the affair at Hoover's
Gap on the 24th of Juno, 1S63. No, no, Com
rade McDonald, we don't want it all, but we
must have credit for capturing that strong
position and holding it for four hours at least,
when other troops relieved us and took our
place. Private Yilliain R. Clark, company H,
Seventy-second regiment Indiana volunteers,
who was shot on tho picket-line, was the firs
man wounded when that action -began. I
kuow, for I was there.

To the Editor National Teutons:
In regard to that "Mysterious Search " at
Lacon, Ga., I would say tfiat it was mad he
cause an old (Union) citizen lost some property
which was supposed to have been taken by the
soldiere, among the articles stolen being a
fine gold watch. He complained at headquar
ters, and Brigadier-General Winslow, com
manding the Fourth brigade, ordered the
search. AH their valuable souvenirs were
taken from the boys. Some got them back
and some did not Were we mad? That is no
name for it! It was reported at the time that
a high-flown popinjay of a lieutenaut on Gen.
Wrinslow,s staff had tlie man's watch in his
pocket all the time, yet looked quietly on
while the boys' private property was being
tiken from them. This was not the first time
that Winslow had a general search made for
some old rebel's property, aud he will not for

A Lucky Indiana Battery.
To the Editor National Tribune:
I am not after tho hash with a long list of
casualties, but I do believe I am safe in saying
that our battery the Fifteenth Indiana for
the length ot its service can show the lea3t
number of casualties of any company in the
service. Wo had bnt one man killed John G.
Parkinson, at Rocky Face, Ga. and two
wounded. The length of our service was
throe-and-a-half years first at Harper's Ferry,
while afterwards we participated in the chase
and capture of John Morgan, and in tho East
Tennessee and Knoxvillo campaigns, all the
battles incident to Atlanta, aud then in tho
retreat of Thomas to Franklin and Nashville.
We wore never on garrison duty, but always at
the front. Yours, &c, J. B. Mattack;,

ing room. The guards sat on top, with their
logs hanging over the sides, and their guns on
or across their knees, so that if any Yankee
tried to jump off they could get a good shot.
However, I pried open the door and jumped
off, Bird foUowing, and Turner coming next,
when the guards began to shoot, and fired in
all eight shots at us. Tho train wa3 going so
fast, however, that they could not take good
aim. As I crawled up close to the track one
ball struck the road, filling my eyes with sand.
I was somewhat bruised and shaken up, but
thatwasnothing wewcre free mcu onco more,
never to bo taken alive again! Our tunnels
aud all other plans of escape had been failures,
but this was a grand success. Wo were 180
miles from armed friends, but what did that
amount to inour minds? Turner was bare
footed and we not much bettor ofT, but wo
started off on our long tramp for the sea coast,
and after twenty-one days and nights of trav
eling reached Jacksonville, Fia., at about 2
o'clock in the morning, and found tho place
occupied by friends. When wo reached the
outpost we heard tho sound of tho night bells
on a guuboat on St. Johns River, and wo sat
down on a log aud cried with joy till the tears
ran off our faces aud trickled down among the
leaves. It was the only time oither of us had
ever cried for joy. We found the Fifty-fifth

An UupuMIshed letter from Wirz.
To tho Editor National Teibune :
The treatment of prisoners at Andorsonyillo
during the rebellion will never cease to b9 re
membered as tho most atrocious crime in the
history of this country, aud associated with it
will be the name of Henry Wirz, who expiated
his fiendish outrages upon the gallow3. The
following letter, written by him a short time
before his execution, came into tho possession of
Captain,S. C. Wright, of Boston, who, thinking it
of interest to all soldiers, and more especially
to those who were confined in the rebel hell
of which Wirz was commander, sends this
copy of the original 'now in his possession to
tho readers of The National Teibune :
Old Capitol Pmsosr, "Washes gton, D. O.,
October 20, 1865.
Sir: Your letter of tho 26th Inst, was handed to
moon yesterday, nnd I .roust confess its contents
are such that 1 must answer to it. I do not for a
moment think that you wrote that letter with
the intention of insulting me, taking advantage of
my unfortunate position, butl do think that for
impudence and presumption it has not its equal.
You say that I am oue of the greatest criminals
that ever lived, nnd, therefore, worthy of capital
punishment; you exhort mo to give up all hope of
escape from a murderer's doom, and not try any
longer to hide or extenuate my guilt, but to confess
the samo openly like a man. You season your
address with quotations from the Bible, etc., etc.
Now, let mo tell you, my dear sir, plainly and
openly, that you are greatly mistaken; that,
strange as it may seem to you, I mu3t say that I
am not a criminal; that my hands were never
stained with tho blood of my follow-man: that I
have no guilt to hide or extenuate, and, above all
things, have nothing to confess ; in other words, that
I am innocent. Yes, I say it again, and, oh, that I
could write it in letters of lire and proclaim
it with the voice of thunder. I am innocent, and
Hhall never, not even at the gallows, buy I am
anything else. And now let me ask you what
right you have toay what you say; to judge as
you judge? I answer you with passages from the
book you have been using for my condemnation,
from the book which has been, in theso dark
hours, my only guide, ray only hope, my eolc
comfort, and ask yon to read St. Luke, vi, 27;
Exodus, ai, 14; Judges, xi, 27 ; St. John, (obscure),
7; Psalms, zxxi.
You seem to be anxious about my spiritual wel
fare, and, if you are sincere, let me thank you, and
allow mo to say that I am not unmindful of my
soul's salvation. I do not fear death ; if it is so
ordained that I shall sufler death, I hopo to die like
anion. There aro three things which have kept
me from despair, whloh give me strength to endure,
and will not forsake me iu my lost hours. The first
and most important is the firm belief that there is
a God, a Supreme Ruler of Heaven and earth,
