something for 'him in a "perfectly
proper way," so he sold him this
stock and the company alfterward
Mr. Felder says it is true that ?e
sold Lyon thestock,butthoughtit s
sold Lyon the stock, but thought it
a good investment and himself lost
several thousand dollars when the
concern went to the wall.
Thomas B. Felder, represented toe
State of South Carolina as attorney
in the days of the winding-up of the
