My sum Mons was answered by n Light Quick step on the Hall floor and when was opened i recognized the fair fond features my dearly remembered Cousin.

At first 6be did not know jut when i called her Hattie As i used to a the Oklyn times she snug pfc me by the mod and in n moment More her soft White arms were around my neck. She was a sister to me in heart and and with n sister s love she greeted me. We went into the parlor where an Astral Srap was already burning upon the Centre Able and where a fire was reflecting a genial warmth from n polished it was autumn and the evenings were quite owl. Upon a chair near by the table set Little boy some three years playing it the richly ornamented bridle a Locking horse while upon the carpet eras glee some child not Jet Abaft to walk with safety engaged in tumbling it Large Martin Muff.

When had i been what bad i Tarn doing How had i been was i mar did i Erer intend to and n Hundred More questions like character were showered upon me before i hid time to ask any in return. By and by Fred came in. There was a Cloud upon his face when he entered the room. 1 saw it very plainly but his wife hurried to his Side kissed him and whispered in his ear and in n moment he Brierl tend up incl when he greeted me and he d my band and patted me upon the Sli Puljer he nope Ltd the same warm and genial paint is the Ojen time. At the Tea table he asked after my for tune in the Distant Home i bad sought 1 o find when i told him i and succeeded beyond my most sanguine expectations and that material wealth was fist o for to be was nut Only pleasant but inti in Ted that such Lussac is and such prospects would suit lira.

You know that my father and Uncle Tim Othy once Hadi n serious falling i told him i have some recollection it but that was a great Many years ago. We were boys then 1 was near Twenty years Fred but i remember it very Well for i recollect How badly it made Mother feel. The estrangement lasted for some years and luring that time the bitterness was very Strong. My Uncle declared tent be would have nothing More to do with his brother rim under the influence this fee Ling he made n will convey ing the great bulk his properly to son his sister s husband. You remember that Don t you i said. But for my wife and children Ohil is hard he buried his face in Bis hands and wept aloud but in a Little while he became Calm again and i questioned him As i saw fit. Another witness to the will besides Stephen Akers was living and be bad testified that to believed the instrument now produced was the one to which he put his name. In Short the Case looked dark enough and i dared not give my Friend much Hope. Yet t promised to think the matter and be present with lira at Thoj trial. To the stand again. The wretch saw that i was Cici Ted and he trembled a Little when be started to answer to the Call though be was firm enough when he bad gained the stand. Or. Said to controlling myself As i possibly could you made this will Timothy Elliott made he. I merely wrote it Down for Bim a he dictated this will is said i looking at its sign and Seal october third eighteen years age this very month replied Akers that is when it was ma3e. And you swear that this u the identical i do and you swear that Timothy Elliott set his hand and Seal upon this paper at Tho herein mentioned i do.1 i looked the witness in the Eye. He and i did it very Well for it made considerable talk at the time and More so because staffer who do very i told him for n poor ran tried Tinothy Elliott s sister find with Only Bis two hands to help him to got into the Western wilds but for one like Bim with in Independent Fortune it his command to think such a thing was ridiculous. He smiled As i spoke and urm a tie Suji it conversation. Item an hour after we adjourned to the pm or i was sure something bad gon wrong with my i ind. He tried to by Lic Erful to talk our old pranks and to nigh and joke is in the Days our youth is n last resort endeavoured to arouse Lim self by caressing b s it would not bad seen too Nuch. Hattie succeeded much bettor than did yet is the evening wore on i Coull we there was a heavy Load upon her heart is Well. At length the. Chi urn were a Becj nil he Mother soon followed them. I Phi in y heard her sob As she left the room and a smothered groan which could notes ape me burst from her husband s bosom red poked up the coals and took two or Sirce turns across the floor after which he turned and Down near me. He said Lis face nil wrapped in loom perhaps you think i act strangely. I think something is the matter with i returned something must have one wrong 3 o i you no right. Something has gone wrong. In fact he continued is a shudder crept Over his Frame a storm has burs upon me which is to ruin me he spoke this so solemnly and so Stead idly knew their must be some deep meaning in it and i asked him be could Tell me his trouble. course he would Tell me. He was in Uknis to Tell me for 1 was not Only one his Dearest friends but i was a lawyer and might possibly assist him. Said i went into business with my Uncle Timothy. When i a feb married lie made me come and live in this Bouse be put the Tribole establish ment into our bands and he then boarded with us. I bad no a Dollar but when i served him one year As Book keeper he give Roe a Good share in the business. Three years ago to died Leav ing me an estate about sixty thousand dollars. Was no will left or at least soc was supposed to be the Case and it All came to me As i was Tho Only blood relative living. Uncle Timothy Bud one brother and one. Sister.

Continued Fred you probably recollect when my father was very sick Uncle Timothy to him and the Junr re l was thrown away and from that Lime while my father lived their brotherly love was warm and generous yrs i know All that at that time my Uncle Polce the will be had made and said he woulds Des Troy it and-1 believe he did. I know it us Well As i know anything which 1 did not see with my own Eye. my Uncle died he me that he should make no Wili for there was no need it. He said i was the Only lawful heir and that was enough. My Uncle did and i came info Possession the property and i have enjoyed it and have tried to do Good with it and have added something to the orig Inal Fortune for i have been careful and prudent. In a dark hour however a storm burst upon Roe. It seemed Only a Cloud it first but it proved a fearful one. John staffer has returned. He went away about ten years away because my Uncle would not give him a Home any has now come and has Laid claim my properly. He claims the whole but i asked As try Friend Stop Ped to take la nth. Remember Stephen Akers the said Fred. Replied i know Bim very Well he has been out and done some bus iness there but be can t do More where he is known for he proved himself Vil Lian on the following morning t got away a soon As possible for i could not Bear to hear grief but i promised to come Back again and As t held her hand at the door tool her to keep up a Good heart. An Uncle mine named Ansel Forbes a brother my Mother was in town on must have read in that look something my thoughts for Hia changed and his Knets actually Shook beneath him. I told him i had done with him. Then i esked that Forbes might be called to the a tend. What did i want with him and my Uncle was also anxious to know Why he was called upon for he was Well known and and i went to Seo Biro. He was 8tood is is Tolfe judge himself. A paper manufacturer and Worth a hand some property. I found him at the hotel and passed a Happy hour with him for 1 bad been Bis pet in boyhood and it was by Bis generous Bounty tent through j be l College. I told him about the trial which i Ien Anid you Are a manufacturer paper 1 he said he wag. Long have you been engaged in he thought a moment and replied entered the in was coming off and he said be meant to be 1831 so i have been in it just ten present he could. He had been Well a said him the in quainter with Timothy and he was St raiment which i you Tell me firmly convinced that tie Only will which j Wilk the jury when that paper was Elliott h and Ever made bad been destroyed 1 when the hour trial arrived it was he took it and the moment his Eye announced thai i should assist in the Case rested upon it he started. He gazed upon 1 took my seat with the counsel already the Corner and Hen in a engaged. As. The trial went on it certainly did look dark enough for my Friend. Ste phen dark browned foxy looking Roan with a hair a grizzled red which stood like a hedgehog s quills upon his Small that this will was the will which he is Timothy Elliott s attorney had made eighteen years before and that tone be i made it t demanded. It could not have been Over nine years Ngo for Here is my upon it As i alone have Ata Ped paper in this he then showed to the court and to the he had been in Possession it Ever since the Mark which be had detected. It until be had lodged it in the probate office. I was Plain enough Litte Oval in and to also sword to the receipt letters i pression with the name a. Forbes in from Elliott bidding him keep the bossed in it it was defaced and boiled Safe. The arc was no getting around his Tes was Plain and direct and we could not break through it. An old Man named Jackson who had do you know but what has that to do with you Tell you. I n the first place he used to do business Here and my Uncle employed him some rpt Nimbar that and it was he who made that will for my untie yes i recollect it now continued old villain a lawyer came Back Here about Sis months ago and Ere. Long he and staffer bad their Heads together. In a Little while staffer came and Laid claim to my Uncle s property and when asked what he meant be produced a paper which appeared to be the last will and testament or Timothy Elliott. And Stephen Akers swears that this is the same with which my Ancle made Many years ago and Toht i Lihs been in his charge Ever since. He says that when he went away the Western country he Over looked it among his papers and took it along with him. He furthermore de clares that he received Many letters from or Elliott in which he requested him to be careful the will and keep it so that it could be brought to Light in Case said i this ?31 most be a fraudulent one most certainly it is returned Fred. And yet it has been admitted to pro and the Jago has accepted it. I appealed and it goes to the Superior court and moreover die aria Cornea off to Morrow. For myself 1 Weine alone m the i would care lit for i could pot Forth my energies anew been one the witnesses the old will testified that to believed the inst Umen now before him was the one to which i had put his inn h he could Sav that this was his own signature. He was an Hon Cost old admitted that he had Al ways supposed the will had been de 5troycd. For our client we had not Liing Plain fuels to a cup us. Had any amount impressions and opinions in our favor. It Lind been the impression Al Timothy Elliott s intimate friends that the will which he had made had been destroyed. He bad talked to them in that Way. And yet not one them could swear that they had Ever heard him Sny directly that such was the fact. In Short though the belief in the destruction that will was so general and so firm yet we could not present to the jury a single fact to sustain us in the decision. Had the counsel for the App Elleni any More testimony to produce Fred placed his hand trembling like an Aspen no Only Arm and my soul i am he was pole As death and his suffering intense. As the Case now stood i could have no Hope. Whatever May have been the opinion the court and the jury up on the right and Justice the thing there could have been Bat one opinion upon the Law and fact. My heart Sank within me. Where the counsel for the Appellant ready to rest their Case i held the will in my hated. I believed it to be n forgery. I believed the Only will which Timothy Elliott Ever made bad been destroyed and that a hers in consideration a share in the spoils had from the old draft in his hands forged this instrument counterfeiting even Jackson s signature to nicely that Tho simple old Man could Nob disown it i was about to give the instrument up and my last feint Hope with it when a dim Mark in one Comer the Sheet caught my Eye. It was a impression on the to targe As the Point a Finger s end. But i Bent my Bead for a moment to Call to mind some thing the past. What is up naked Fred who had noticed my emotion. 1 told Biro to wait and then Erose and looked around the court room. Was my Ancle there Yea i saw 4im by me. I asked might be called1 but not obliterated. Stephen Akers was trying to make bin Way from the court room but the Deputy brought him a fuck. Two wholesale dealers were summoned and when they examined the paper at once recognized it As Ansel Forbes s manufacture. Knew could be no question. And thus almost , was the whole current w Case in and in a very we had the verdict. That enc Tjing Hottie Hung about my neck and blessed and thanked Roe until i fairly cried. And Fred when he tried to speak what had passed at once broke Down under the weight Joy and gratitude that was upon Bim. He was Safe Hia Fortune was Safe his wife and Little ones were still blessed. Some asked me Bow i happened to detect that silent witness away up in the Cor Ner that paper. T answered that my Uncle gave me half a dozen reams that paper when he commenced making it and i had been using it Ever since.
