But I am charitable enough to excuse
him for this delny upon the ground thai
he did not come to the conclusion that he
had been Insulted, nnd that his blood?
thirsty angor did not arise until after 1
It 1b a long rldo nnrl I am very busy
now, but Btlll I would return Immediately
If I did not feel assured that his anger
would keep, certainly for a month or two,
during which timo I expect to be In Win?

which he Is defendant and of which he
will have due and proper notice, and I
will be delighted on this occasion to give
him the opportunity of seeing me, but I
would prefer that ho would not wait again
for nearly twenty-four hours to do so, as
It might be very inconvenient for mo to

bo glad to see him in Brls-tol, and I know
that Mrs. Thurman's friends would give
him a very warm reception. If It is not
convenient for him to be at either Win?

later on I expect to be in Berryvllle, per?
haps on several occasions, and on any

and make up his mind earlier than ho

before I am gone. On each occasion I
have been In Borryvllle I tried very hard

WANTS GOVERNMENT TU BUI.
Mr. Mauck will remain In possession o
the plantation for some time, as the nev
owner has arrangod with him to keep I
up, As Wlllorbeo merely bought th<
place as an Investment, not intending tc
use It for private purposes, it Is hardly
probable that ho will spend any time In
the section himself.
For ycmrs It has been understood that
the government would eventually buy
the plantation and convert It into a na?
tional park, and It Is, generally believed
that the new owner bought It for the
purpose of pushing this Idea and to sell
the property to the government.
