Donovan was with Howard when the dynamite exploded and the two made a Rush for the shattered window but found their scheme had fallen through. Howard said Quot the Day i came Here Donovan approached me and wanted to know if i could not get some dynamite. Donovan said he had nearly three Sticks but he was afraid he had not enough to blow the Walls 1 told him i could not get any As i had no friends in Jackson. Donovan said we were to release Latimer if we blew up the Wall As he was the Man who concocted the plan. I tried to get dynamite but could to and told Donovan i had failed. He said he would see Latimer the next sunday and we would consult again. Donovan met Latimer in the prison Chapel and got him to write a letter to a Friend for some dynamite but Latimer blundered and the letter was found and that scheme headed off. Then Donovan wanted me to go in with him and we a would try the Walls with what we had. When the convicts were in the schoolroom we left our cells. Donovan dug a Hole with the chisel in the masonry Laid the dynamite placed the Caps lit the fuse and then we stood Back and waited but the window did no to come Down and so we were caught. We threw away our revolvers and ran to our cells. We hated to go Back on Latimer but he could not help us and so we thought we would Toueh off what dynamite we had and take the chances. I suppose i la get punished for my part in the Job. But i can t help it now. We did t have enough of the stuff or we would be free men clerk Avery related How he had obtained Howard a confession. Quot i found said Captain Avery a four culminating Caps done up in a piece of Calico among the debris after the explosion and one revolver. I then searched Donovan s cell and found the piece of Calico from we hich the one enclosing the Caps had been torn. I found a chisel with a padded head in Howard s cell. Then i had Howard brought in from the solitary and showed him what i had found and he weakened and told me the last Winter a plot similar to the one that failed on monday was discovered by the prison authorities who Learned that dynamite had been smuggled through the Gates and thrown Over Tho Walls by friends of Latimer and enough of the terrible explosive was found in his cell to destroy a Large building. How closely he has been watched since is shown by the fact that he was Able while associating with other desperate criminals to Engineer a fresh plot. Rising at the rate of a foot an hour.
