Ho showed me documents connecting Parnell and Dillon with himself. If you want me to take him over, you must amend your evidence in court after reading my report as to his refusing any sum to go over to make his life more safe here. If I am to carry it through, place the net amount named to my credit Montreal Bank, Chicago, 50(M. more for contingencies, and I will have it transferred on notice. If you don't accept ho will leave at once for fresh clime, to save his life, it ho can. Ho will on the stand and otherwise prove the Parnell letter, and IHH and others' complicity.
