During the past few weeks much has been written concerning the Duncan Case and to me it seems that in almost every instance the main Point at issues has said Duncan has been legally Aud properly convicted by a fair Aud impartial jury of Bon att de citizens of the great state of Texas has been lost sight of by the various writers that a foul crime was committed one that the perpetrator should Sutler the full penalty of the Law is not to he Gai Sayed by anyone but the fixing that crime upon the actual party who committed it is one of the questions at Issue now Aud if tune were allowed it is sincerely believed by Many that parties other than Dick Duncan would be found guilty of the iut Amous crime he now stands convicted ? of. But the great Point at Issue is eau the authorities of the state of Texas sit quietly Down and look complacently upon his execution when there Are grave doubts and not groundless ones in the minds of May of the most prominent jurists of the state As to whether he was legally convicted. The Laws of our country Are specific and Plain As to How and when a Man can become a citizen of this country and if by some mistake or error of some acting officials a Man in improperly naturalized As can be shown to the satisfaction of the most sceptical in at least one instance in number of jurors in the Duncan Case the a said Duncan was illegally convicted. Now the question can and will the authorities let Dick Duncan be executed with this Patent doubt Hung Lull in their face and As plainly to be seen As the famous Quot baud writing on the Wall and not half so hard to interpret. It Dick a Tucau committed the awful crime with which he now stand charged Aud possibly convicted let him Haug hut lot it be done in a Legal Maimer and by the verdict of twelve citizens of this great state Aud not by a collection of men part of whom Are citizens some aliens and others Tough aliens cannot under existing Laws become citizens of this great Republic. It is an old just Rule at Law that it is better for ninety and nine guilty Neu to f o free than that one innocent person should perish by its mandates. Some say that our Hon. Governor cannot afford to have his time taken up nor his clemency asked in a Case of this stud.

S. Army was condemned by his Superior to die or being found asleep at his Post of duty president Lincoln Folind time to investigate his Case and Grant him a Pardon he so richly deserved. Our governor has much better Call an extra session of the state legislature and set to right at once Aud forever the doubts concerning the Validity of our present so called revised statutes a than to Chaveau extra session of said legislature fur the purpose of asking Pardon of the Alieu tor the past acts of our legislators who passed Laws to Benefit the actual citizen and actual resident of the state. Hoping that the actual perpetrator of the crime Laid at Dick Duncan a door May have his neck broken that the extra session or some other session of the legislature will med our broken statutes Aud the Alieu die Happy i am no More so help me a Bob a shooting at fort Worth.
