Melvyna was lying her Back the floor near her sister with her Skull fractured from the left Temple around the Back the head to a Point just above the right ear and her Throat was Cut from ear to car. A bloody Case knife Lay by her evidently the weapon which had made the fatal Gash.

Then breaking the spell that held him he bounded away toward his employer s residence. Is. Hudson the employer while sitting at dinner. Looked through an open door and saw Charles Miller running toward the House at full Speed. As be Drew nearer he could be heard crying out a run to meet me run to meet me a .

By this time a Large number negroes had collected around and among them Jack Thomason a boy about thirteen years old. Jacks fathers Cabin was not More than one Hundred and fifty Yards off and having reason to believe that tacit had been loitering about there that morning. Or.

They informed him a belief prevalent among them that if a murderer could be brought to touch the murdered person the latter would bleed at the place touched and they wanted Jack Thomason s guilt innocence established by that test. Or Hudson endeavoured to prove to them that this was Mere superstition but he soon saw that to satisfy some the test must he made albeit others declared that they would not be satisfied with that lest no matter which Way it was decided. Or. Hudson found Jack to Hoinesn in the crowd outside the House and summoned him to the critical test. With almost breathless anxiety the negroes crowded around the two Little rude Pine coffins which held the remains the hapless Ehtyl Dren. As the Youthful murderer was led up to his victims for the first time his nerve and self Possession forsook him and he trembled like an Aspen Leaf. By .

An altercation followed in which he says she cursed blk and then struck him the head with an Iron poker turning from her. He took up her fathers a hot gun which was standing near in a Corner and lodged tii contents in her head.
