it whs not the paper he had mailed to
Matthews. Witness was cross-examined
minutely as to the circumstance' attendine;
the B'lfnuture of the Anderson-YVeltcr con
tract, At one time he testified to his recol
lection of ittt taking place ill the office uf
Seymour, a notury puldic. and ut another
time he expressed a douht whether one sit
of signatures (there were two sets to the
same paper) limy not have lieen at the custom-house,
llu could not fix definitely
where the first set had lieen made, hut lie
inclined to the belief that lioth were signed
at Seymour's office.
In reference to one of these variations,
Mr. Head said : You stated distinctly Hint
the first set of signatures were executed ut
SeMiioiir's office. Witness Then I am
williiiir to correct it.
Mr. I'ceil, Now I want to know whether
tipit is the truth or whether you said that
with the intention of deceiving this cuni
mittee; Witness Allow mo to say that I
have no interest in deceiving this coininit
tee. Mr. liend. Of that perhaps we want

miitlcr of inditl'crcnce to me whether you
want liettcr ass urn nee or not.
O,. Did you see'WclM-r .iyn the first
one, wherever it wits signed; A. I say I
do not recollect iinythiiiif as to the first

that we signed Ix t 1 1 of them in Seymour's

Q Did you ever see that paper liefore:
A. I have no recollection of ever seeing
that paper liefore.
il. Is not this the paper that vou mailed
to Senator Matthews: A. It is not. I
know by the fact that the sheet of paper on
which I wrote the tigreenient had two spots
of red ink on it, one on the top right hand
corner, and one just below therenter, whirh
sjtots I erased. I remember it very distinctly,
and this paper has no mark of any such
erasures. Then too, it was n double sheet

Dkau Mit. Anukiison As I was writing
to the captain to-night, I thought I would
do myself the pleasure of writing to you
also. I came here three days ago to see my
elder brother on some family business.
Altout a month Itcfore I left home I got n
letter from you addressed to the captain.
I kept it a good while ere I opened it be
cause the captniu was over at Bayou Hon
foucu at work, so I did not get to give it to
him at nil. So you must not thiuk hard of
him for his seeming neglect in answering
your kind letter. The captain has not as
yet got anything from the party nor ever
will, we are altogether left out in the .cold.
I presume we should Ih; for ever runait
any risk for it. I can't help laughftigwhen
I think what fools we wen to lie sure you
as well as us. In your letter you did not
mention what document it was you wished
to get. Is it S 's letter to 1) and you : If
so, why did you not say so! Almost all our
old friends are gone. Senator Jenks went
out West. Postlcthwnite is in United
States employ watching government logs.
I am at the St. James. I always stay here,
will remain a few day. Would be glad to
hear from you if you can make it conven
ient to w rite. Hoping you are well, I am,
as ever, Your triend,

Excuse paper; excuse chirograph)-. I
am quite tired out with my long journey."
The witness explained thut the captain
meant Mrs. Jenk's husband, and that cap
ital S w ith a dash meant Sherman, and
that the whole phrase meant Sherman s
letter to Don and him.
Mr. McMalion asked Mr. Cox whether
Senator Matthews had given to him all
papers and letters thut he had relating to
Mr. Cox I did not so understand it. I
only understood him to state that these
were the originals of the Nash and Weber
agreements, which I specially inquired for.
I only asked for those two papers. The
letter accompanying the one (referring to
that given hIkivc) he thought- had bettor
come with it ns part of that particular
The ('hairnian Anderson says he wrote
a number of letters to Senator Matthews.
Witness Oh yes; I wrote a doen or
The Chairman! to Butler, sarcastically)
You would like to have nil of them:
McMalion (to witness) What was this
Pitkin agreement, referred to in your letter
to Matthews us having been destroyed:
Witness It was not really an agreement.
I went in one day to Pitkin and told hiui
that on account of my refusal to make the
protest I had made enemies of all the I'c
publicans, and that us the Democrats
thought 1 had made a protest I had made
enemies of all the Democrats, and I asked
him what assurance I would have that I
would not be left entirely out in the cold.
In answer to that he sent me a note one
day. simply stating that he would assure
me that if I would stand by the party, they
would provide for me,
(J. What do you mean by this state
ment in your letter, as to the ehrtors not
signing the certificates? A. The state
ment was made to me that three of the
presidential electors, Ilurcli, Marks and
I.evisse, had voted iii blank, and that their
names had been forged to the electoral
count, and I found out afterwards, that there
was a good deal of truth iii that claim. Dr.

friends, remarked to me one day that ho
would be damned if they attempted to
