In reply .Miss l'roctor says : "I should
have been glad If you could have had op
portunity to deny publicly under oath
this atrocious story. At the same time I
attached little Importance to such denial,
for it has always seemed to me that the ab
surdity and iuiH)4iibllity of your ever
having uttered a syllable of this slander
must be apparent to all the world, as It Is
to myself; and now that the lie has been
retracted In open court by thoo who
proclaimed It, with the abhorrence and
scorn it merits, dismiss forever."
