paper I could hardly believe my
eyes. Being here in Bainbridge
for the last three years and
knowing things as I do, I think
that the public will agree with
me that among her several
brothers I should be the brother
that should get her out of this
publicity that false friends have
lead her into. This day Feb.,
22nd I have from her own lipsj
that she wants "me to let
public know what she did and
knows. Lots of men that know
when they see the truth and if
I have left any doubts on your
minds I can be seen and will
give the public any information
as to the matter.
