Respectfully returned I have written to this man to come here and state his case again but he does not appear. I have investigated it once and the facts proven showed a desire on the part of [[?]] to back out of his agreement, without any reason whatever, his statement (inclosed) was not proven tho he attempted to do so, as regards my refusing to hear his story it is simply false.
