I have the honor to report that Ned Wingate Jr, the man who murdered March the 3rd C.S. in open daylight in the street of Crockett, Henry Driskoll a good citizen, was tried before the District Court in Crockett on April the 2nd. C.S. and acquitted by the jury.  - to go forth and do likewise.
So much for civil authority in this country.
By the next mail, I shall report this case in full.

I am Sir
Very Respectfully
Your Obedient Servant
