     I received a letter from Mrs. Clary,
she is at Circleville and has a class
in music. she seems to know nothing
of recent developments but it may
be, that she has written me simply to
ascertain at any rate it looks sus=
picious, and I shall for the present
lay her letters on the table.
I       do not know what steps Pa.
has determined to take. there seems
to be a little too much sympathy to
suit me. an unconditonal surren=
der should be demanded full res=
titution cash price of jewelry should
be paid and the settlement of your
claim reconsidered and paid or
undoubted security given for its
early payment. This thing of
his memroy failing him and he
cannot recollect et&c. is entirely
too thin. I do not think we should
allow ourselves to be bamboozled
by him any longer. It is my
opinion that they are now begging
for mercy. I am willing to be
merciful only after they do the
square thing by us. Pa. and S.A. Nash
