My father, AIvh Honeycutt, enlisted a soldier in the U. S. Anny, and I never raw him since. When my father went ar.av to join tlie army. 1 was then about ten yen is old. I was the oldest child and the only hoy, except a little infant brother, then about two years old. I had four sisters younger than myself. I whs then left in charge of a family, aud it was expected that my mother aud mjself should "iipport tneiii until my father returned home out of the army, But, to my sorrow. I was in formed by the soldiersof his enmpsny, that he died in tlie laller part of the year lbt2, at Cumberland, Kentucky, and his body now tills a soldier's grave. I was then left, as I thought, alone. I had no lather t" advise me it look over me. liut I remained with my mother in Union county, until about the year 1815, when we moved to Clai borne county, where I lived and work ed for my mother, and assisted her in raising her children until I married. I was raised a poor boy and had to work, though I was raised holiest liut iike other bovs I have been guilty of dbotiedn-nce to my parents, h.ive often fished and bunted upon the ban hath, ami to avoid punishment have told falsehoods, mid have been twice in in y life intoxicated by linuor.

I love my wife am! little child, mid I forgie my fu( her in-law for the past, liut if 1 had.nev er seen him or his sons, I would not have been here i.i the condition lam now In. Movent watt always abusing me, and that for no cause liut, to except my father-in-law, I never hud a fuss, aud never was accused or ctiarg ed with crime, until (tie death of Thos Asmus. This shameful aud brutal murder is alleged to have been done ou the day of , Is," aud on the day of January, 1874, I was arrested and charged, aud have since been con victed of the murder of Asmus, aud for which I must soon be executed. I am innocent of the murder. never did it, or knew anything about it until after it was done, iiut my ig tiorauce of the law aud the false swear ing of witnesses, together with the money and intlueuce of the Ausuius family, have heaped upon me the highest crime known to the law. At the time the murder is said to have been committed, I was living near Ausmus, and upon the lands of my father-in-law, Henry W. Movers, with whom I could not get along, and seeing that Moyers was always abus ing me, I went to Ausinusou the day previom to the murder ami was try ing to negotiate for a piece of land lying in tlie wugon hollow, wln-ro he was mid to have btiju killed. J also went back to the house of Aiisiiius on the morning of tlie day hu was killed. He anil I started oil' alone to the wat;on hollow; we finished our negotia tion and maikeil 11' the line, but bad no paper aud ink to draw the inces sury writings letwecn us. Ausmus then said wo could get paier ut Henry Hunter's, a distance of about, half a mile. I t Id Ausmus I would not go to Hunter's but I would go to moth er's, a distance of about one and a half miles, and get paper and Ink, and meet him at the mouth of the hollow. Ausmus Agreed, and I started oil" across the ridge in the direction of my mother's. Ausmus started down the hollow towards the point at which we were to meet. Ausmus said as he started down the hollow that he would look down about the forks of the hol low for some hogs or sheep, I do not remember which he said. After I lint I ntversaw him any more. When I got to the point at which we were to meet, Ausmus was not there, and after waiting a short time I started up the hollow in the direction of tlie place I left him. I soon met Wesley Moy ers, my brother-in-law (who was ar rested before I was and was released without a trial). He told me he had just killed Ausmus a short distance up the hollow, pointing to some trees up on thesideof the hill, saying they were shout opposite where the murder was (lone and where his body then lay. Moyers then made me promiie I would not tell it. Tills was the first 1 knew of hisdcalli, mid what Moyers then told me, is all I know about it in any way. Meyer pointed a short distance up on the side of the ridge aud said Ausmus'papers w er hid there, and said if I desired to see them, they could be found there. I disputed with Moyers and told him it was not so, and he again pointed to tiie place where he mid his papers were concealed, and pledged bis word that he hail committed the c. ime. and chaiged me not to tell it. Moyeis said lie bad been there in the hollow looking for timber to raft, ami killed Ausmus as he passed where he (Meyers) was con cealed. Moyers then left nie and went away down tlie hoilow, in the direc tion of wlieie he lived. I remained at the same place until after Moyers got out of my sight. I once thought I would go up the hollow to the place where Moyers said he bad left Aus mus dead. Hut as I was atone I did not go. I started to go to Ausinti-' house, thinking perhaps he was not dead, and would beat home Mguiiist 1 could get, there. When I arrival at the house of Ausmus, I asked his folks if he had come home, they said he had uot. It was then about 12 M, Aus mus' wife and some work hands were about the house when I got there. 1 told them to tell Ausmus. wheu h.- came.thatl would be thereon Tuesdav logo into writings about the land I had bought. I then started home distance of about one mile, believiiiu that Meyers had told nie (lie tnith.and that Ausuius was dead. I then thought as 1 had been seen that morn ing going wit h Ain-inu-int.. tlie watr- on hollow, and had been seen alone with him down in the hollow by Campbell Williums (a Mule ,ev who testified against me on tlie tiial), that I would be chaiged with tlie minder, and would have to pr. , mv inno cence. '1 til-, I knew I cool. I i.iil il. for no one whs pie.-.ni ? ile time Moy. rs told tile he itld, the murder. I had also told Moyers that 1 would nev er tell it lo any one. I will also say that the red race of nu n, from win in I descended, have given up their liven lather than divulge 1 he secrets of i hi ii fellow men, after promising they never would, liut I knew I must tell it or leave the coun try, ami for this reason I lel'i the coun try aud (Vint away, liut when Aus mils and myself weie alone in tlie wagon hollow, -itting upon a log talk ing, at the nine spoken el be vnung Williams in his evidence against me. we saw the little boy coining, and Aus mus proposed to hide and scare the little boy, I then drooped back behind the log we were sitting upon and hurt my lortnead against a limb, and when 1 got Home my wife saw it and asked me ir I had been lighting. I told her all I had done was in self-defense ; I then beliett-d I would have to tell all about it or leave the couutrv. aud I had promised Moyeis that I never would tell it. And lor this reason I sent for my mother, borrowed some money, and started in a canoe to rela tives of my wife in Hliea county, Ten nessee, liy the name of llratchen. As I was going down the river in a canoe I passed my father-in-law, Henry W. Moyers, going in the direction of the lace .where Ausmus was said to have been killed. He a.-ked me where that fray took place. I told lilm in the wagon hollow. He then asked nie, as though I had done the killing myself, it l dm it in st ir defense." 1 then told him I would tell him all about it at a convenient time. This conversa tion was given in evidence against me by Henry W. Moyers himself, also hy 1. 1). . smith, Who said lie was con cealed close to the river and heard it. I did net know he was there at the time. When I got to my relations in 1'hea county, I made different and false stute- nienU about what 1 had come there for. 1 told mine of my relations there that there had been a tutu in Claiborne county ana that 1 expected TIiouihs Aumiii wa dead. I reuiHined there until the dtiy of Jan uary, 1S74, expecting to Unrt home the next morning, but wmk i.rrei-teil thai night l y U. 11. linger unu vt m. 11. tiiwuod, and some fix or eight other men. I did not know who they were. Kogets and Cawood tied rue and started to convey me bHck to Clui- borno county, charging mu with the inur der ot Ausmus, and tried tu get inu to own it, or tell who did it. I told ihem ut first 1 had nothing to do with tho murder. and refused to make any further bUteiiienU about it in any way. They afterwards gave me liquor, and told me it would he the best tor mo to tell anything I knew about it. J again told them I did not do the killing. They then told mo they would release me if 1 could tell them 'w here the tmncrt of Ausmus were hid. I told them thut I did nut know anything about the killing, but 1 thought I could tind the place where I was told something belonging to Auvmus wa hid. Ihcythcn asked roe who hid it. told them Greenlee hid it. 1 did not know they would arrest Greenlee, but as soon as they got to UlHiborne county they arrested bim. 1 then told them ho was innocent, and to turn him luoee. I was taken to ihn phi' o a hero I thought the pocket-book and paper- of AubIiius had been pointed out to me. by Wesley Moyers. The crowd that was along looked in several places, and I think I). itogurs fuunJ it. They said it was Au-inus' pocket-book and papers. They threatened me, and attempted to get me to own that 1 hud dono the murder. 1 was afraid of them, and I run not now lay what 1 then told them. While they bad mo in their cu-tudy at tho blacksmith shop of Win. Ausinii", there were fifty men gathered around me, sumo of them rela tives of Au.-nius. They were ail tulking about inc. home of them tulked of mash ing my head with a rock; others said 1 should be shot, and others i-aid 1 ought to be burned. Jureii Hussell, a brother-in-law of Ausmus, attempted to take my shirt olf, and was prevented by C. II. ling ers who had me under guard. Roger- drew a pistol and nindniim stand back. Under these threats of violence 1 ninde any sort of statements that I thought they wanted me to make. Lafayette Auimut, tho son of the murdered man. askod ine if Henry Moyers had anything to do with tho murder. I told him if ho did I did not know anything about it. Ausmus then said if I did not implicate Henry Moyers with tlio murder of his father, he would fill mo with pino splinters and set mo on lire. 1 then told them that Henry Moyers w as connected with tho murder. They st at that time had Mayors io jail for tho mur der of Ausmus, but I did not know it. They robbed mo of six dollars and sixty livo cents, which was all 1 had, nnd they claimed that it was Ausmus' money. I can not tell whether Ausmus lo-a any money or not; but l Know tao money they taken from mo was not his. and 1 thin k they ought to givo it back to my wife and little child, "l was then carried to Taze well, socurely bound and chained by the leg, w here I havo been ever since, except when I was taken to Knoxvillo to attend my trial in the Supremo Court, is'mce I havo been lodged in tho jail of this county, I have often been visited by tho relations nnd friends of tho Ausmus 1'amilv, trying to extort a confession from nie. 1. on one occasion, told them they had threatened and scared mo to mako false statements, and that they could now go awny, for 1 was out of their hands. Tho proceedings of tho Circuit Court of Claibnrno county, and tire evidence heard agiin-t mo, I desire to append to this state ment. I have now given a full and true statement of my connection with the mur der, but being, as 1 then believed, in tho custody of an infurisled mub, I niadethi,,Je false statutnonts, thinking, at tho time, it was tho only way to save my life. When 1 was put upon my trial, before Judge Ran dolph, in Claiborne county, under tho rul ing of his Honor these extorted and fal-e confessions were held a admissible evi dence against me, and allow-ed to go to the iurv. fo the only defense I could make in thnface of them was that of self defense. 1 desire to now speak of some of the wit nesses who testiliud against me, nnd who swore a lie, knowing at tho same timo that I knew it. Jascn Russell, a brother-in-law of the deceased Ausmus, whose evidence I append to this statement, sworo a positive lie against me, and he knows it. There are other parties now living who were w ith mo all the time I was about William Ausnius's, when I was carried back from Rhea coun ty, and they must know, and do know, af ter looking at the evidence, of Russell, that he sworo a positive lie in regard to the state ment he sworo I made to him in the leather house. Ho begins by telling that I said I would tell a friend about it, and then said I told him under this plea of friendship that Ausmus was walking before, and I said I killed him with a rock. Russell know s, and tho parties who were there w ill bear witness with me, thHt the whole of his evidence is a lie. They know, and Russell knows, that he never spoko kindly to me that day, and that I could not have taken him lor a friend. Russell knows, and the pirties who were there know, that Russell was one of the party who said 1 should be burned, and that he attempted to take my shirt orl', and was prevented alono by C. 11. Rogers, who drew a pistol and told llussell ho should not abuse me. After this you know, and all who read this know, that I could nut have taken him for a friend, liut I forgive him all thai he said or done, an I sincerely hopu llnil his thirst for the blood of his fellow-man may never prompt him to do so again. llenjitmin Chcatliaui, another witness for the State, knows that a part of his evidence is fal-e. He swore upon tho trial that he was pHrticularly well acquainted with me, sutliciently so that I t knMV I had a crip pled foot, and could sweur to my truck made in the mud, and did upon his oatb shv thai he tracked me and Ausmus down the boil, w to tho place where Ausmus was kill'd, mi, d then tracked me buck up the ridge tloil hu could not bo mistaken about the track that Iliad a crippled foot, and made a shorter track than tho other foot, lien. Cheatham knows that the w holo of tii is narrative is false. He knows ho never saw me. excepting live nr siv times, in his life. Ho also knows that I never had a conversation with liim in my life, anJ as to my foot, lienCheatbam knows nettling apout it. liut parties w ho do know, know that the only infirmity about my foot is, one of my toes on one foot turns a little higher than the others, liut I always wear tho same numbered shoconthit foot that I doon the other, and the morning I went into the wagon hollow with Ausmus 1 had on anew pair of shoes which were not broke to mv feet, and my shoes were both the same number. Cheatham further sworo that ho saw my track at the very spot where Ausmus was killed, and that ho saw the sumo track at a ccrtam place set out in Ins evidence, com ing out of the hollow. Thero were other parties thero ut tho same timo Cheatham was there, and nono of them could sco the trrck. lien. Chenlhutn sworo he fsw it. Ho knows nothing about my track. He further knows that if ho can tell my truck, that he never saw it about the place w here Ausmus was killed. He also knows that bo never saw my track on the ridge at tho place he swore no mo. 1 no parlies who wo.ro thero the hollow at tho timo lien. Cheatham was there, know that he never pointed out my track, and told them it was mine, and showed them tho difference in tho length. N hut caused Cheatham to swear us ho did I leave as a question for him and his God to settle Whether ho was hind or dono it voluntarily I am unablo to say. lie cer tuinly could havo no ill feeling toward me. tor 1 never uone turn any harm, and never had a conversation with him in my lile, J. J. .Sharp, a witness against mo, tos. tilled to a conversation ho had with mo while 1 was in his custody coming on to tlie jail, in which he said I told him we ex pected to get a right smart of money when o kille.i Ausmus. Thin cunversution 1 have no recollection of in any way. I was guard d li jail by tSliarp and some throe or tourotiho Ausmus to.nn 1 y and JcssoC, Uogio-s. If I said it they heard it, but none of th' m testified to such conversation, If I said it. and ho was called upon and sworn to tell the whole truth, I am proud no ii.n it, ior no uono ins duty, liut wheth er 1 said it or not, 1 forgive liim, and if I did not it is tho worse for himself, and may God forgive him. 1 havo nothing further to say about tho witnesses except! think Win. II. Canrod knew and talked ot burring ma for the purpose of extorting confessions from mo at tho blacksmith shop of William Ausmus. and think lie ought to havo told it when he was asked, upon the trial. 11 o also knewthev promised me my release if I would go as near the place as I could, whic h hud been pointed out to rno, where Ausmus' papers wore hid. John Graham heard it, and knows it to bo so, and I could not get him to the trial. John Harrison also swore that ho saw Ausmus and myself, tho morning Ausmus was killed, going down in tho wagon hollow, and that when ha first saw mu 1 was hid behind a tree. Hy uUo swore that I said we would ho gone an hour and a half. Harrison knows that ho never saw me hid behind a true, and he further knows that I never said anything to him about how long wo would begone. Iiut all that I said to Harrison any way was. I uski him to come and go w ith us, and he said his lect were soro and he could not walk. uul 1 lorgivu them ail, u their conscience is clear, and they feel satishel fir mo to hang upon their evidence. He here gives the names of witnesses whom he charges with false swearing and adds : I have now given niy wholo connection with the crime for which 1 must soon be executed. In this 1 havo tried to assert and thuw my innocence My conscience clear of tho murder of Thomas Ausmus. I never did It. I had no connection with it in any way, moro than I have told you. I feel that it is hard to dio tho shameful death of being hung by tho neck for crimo when 1 am innocent, God knows my in nocence, and I am proud ho givos mo health, strength and timo to proclaim it. Hut tho officers of tho law -ay, although I urn innocent, yet tho judgment of tho Court must oo carried out, and 1 must die, and my body consigned to a folon's grave. Hut 1 havo a living evidence glowing within mo, that fo soon as tho struggles of death are over, all Is well with mo that I am going to a place whore there aro no trials or troubles, but where peace and happiness never onus, una will take caro ot my ifo and little child.
