Donoola, Illinois, Dec. 22, IS" I.
Kiutoii Hui.i.KTi.N Sin ; An Item iu
your columns not many days ago, stated
that one Glhnore wa-. robbed iu Cairo.
To explain this is the object of this letter.
Tho candid facts are as follows:
On Wcdne-day, the lillh Int., I went
to Cairo on tho train which esmies the
dally mall South. Just after my arrival,
while walking up thu levee, T met Mr.
Gilniore, a man whom I have known, and
who has known me, from my cnrly boy
hood. Ho wasnt that time in company
with another fi lend of mine, Mr. James
Seav. Wu nil went up the Ohio
leveo to the Dehnonleo Hou-e
nnd went Into tho bar-room,
where .Mr. Glhnore treated to the drinks.
We then left Seay and went down on
Commercial nvenue. 1 bought n trunk
nnd we carried It to the passenger depot
of the Illinois Central railroad. Then
.Mr. Glhnore wanted more of tho "com
mon disturbance." 1 attempted to de
cline but found I could not do so without
causing hard feelings, therefore I accepted
but drank very lightly. I lining no fur
ther business to attend to wo went to vnrl
ous parts of the city, Glhnore drinking
"going througn tne motion" to
make belief. I would not drink much
becauso I never expect to get drunk
The consequences Yvere, by ubte o'clock,
