engaged in the service of God, and that God
was, therefore, responsible for bis board
bills." Tn regard to the shooting of the
President he said: Suddenly on, Wcdncs
day evening after Conkling'g resignation, I
thought if President Garfield was out of the
? way all would go well. I tried to shake it
off, but It grew. In a fortnight's time it had
become a fixed resolve. I never doubted
since that time, about the first of June, that

moved to get rid of him in some other way.

ihe nation from ruin. I know the
Lord employed me, because he always
employs' the best material; 1 folt the
Lord wanted mo to do it to advertise my
book.'' Upon cross-examination witness
said: "1 want it distinctly understood I
did not do that of my own personal volition,
but on the Inspiration of the Deity. I never
would have shot the President on my own
" personal account. The Deily inspired the
act, and the Deity would take care of it.
