"I didn't see what a mutt I was
until I got out of his office. Here
I had one lawyer, and was getting
another, and one who would cost
me $25. Also he had the receipt
for my bail.
"I went back to Barrett and
asked him for the receipt. He
asked me what the h 1 sort of
place I thought I was in. He did
not give me the receipt."
Barrett says : ' "Fossee is my
client. He told me about Cobbs
and about his getting $50 from his
father. He suggested I defend
Cobbs.
"I was to meet Cobbs Monday
morning. I did not do it, and so
telephoned to get the case con
was in the state's attorney's of

"Fossee brdught Cobbs to my
office, I told Cobbs I would de

him I would get him discharged."
Barrett did not either defend
or get Cobbs discharged today,
Just before the case was called by
Judge Wells, Barrett sent the $40
cash bail receipt to Cobbs at the
station.
Cobbs was not fined. He, was
put on probation for three months
and allowed to go. ::
Cobbs attorney asked Wells to
make an investigation of the pe
culiar activities of Barrett. Wells
tinued. It just happened that I j refused to do so.
