changed their minds after learning the
cost. With this fact before them the
council did not feel like taking upon

On the 1st (lay of September, 1877,
Pom Keitt, colored, formerly a slave of
Jol. Ellison S. Keitt, was arrestedl for
igamy. On the 6th of the same month
he following article appeared in the
ew York Times: "A p)rivate letter
eceived from South Carolina states that
ol. Keitt, of Newberry, was arrested
~t that place on Saturday last on the
barge of bigamy, and, ip (ifa of
>a'l, was hei to await the action of
he Grand Jury. This apose has ca
ed a sensation in South Carolina, as
he aceused is a near relative of the
ate Lawregee M. h.eitt, whp ggured so
>romineptly in Congress priwr to the
-ebellion, and is connected with somie
f the best families of the State."
Col. Keitt wrote privately to the
Vimes stating the facts of the ease; but
nsteadl of apologizing it replied wvith
mother article more outrageons than
he first. This satisfied Col. Keitt that
lhe first article had not been the result
f any mistake, but a deliberate at
empt to vilify and smirch lis name;
Lnd he immediatgy 'bepai gn action
or~ libel in the U. S. Court for the Dis
riot of Newy York against George
ones, the proprietor of the Thas, fixing
uis damages at $50,000. The sec.ond
Lrticle is really too indecent to repro
luco here. Col. Kcitt's lawvyers are
imith & Leavitt, and George Jones'
sverett, Southmnade & Choate.

s generally reputed to be related (ille
