What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Your uncle Frank advised me to tell you of it tonight,' said he. \I went upstairs to my work, leaving him below. Soon afterward I went down again to get the paper, feeling that I might as well read it before go- ing to bed. He was reading in the back parlor. I got the envelope out of the drawer in the front room and went back upstairs without disturbing hint. A minute afterward I heard the shot. My own gun was standing In the cor- ner. I grabbed it up and crawled through a window on to the gallery, running down the back steps. As I reached the bottom I saw a man climb- ing over the fence to the right. Not dreaming that a tro.gedy had occurred I rushed after him. He easily got away in the darkness. Then I return- ed to the house. As I came near I saw Isaac Perry -unmistakably Isaac Perry- at the corner. lie turned and ran the instant he saw me. When lie crossed in front of the lighted parlor windows I distinctly saw that he did f .E / It e \My grandfather was lying on the floor.\ giving everything to my uncle Frank, excepting a small bequest in money and a house and lot in Richmond. which, however, were to go to Uncle Frank in case of my death. The will looked genuine -everybody said so, even Judge Gainsborough. It had been drawn three weeks before and had been witnessed by George Whitman, who died tea days after signing. and :Mortimer Simms, who, strangely enough, died three days later.\ \It was a forgery -a false will:\ she cried, trembling violently in her excite- ment. \I know it was --I know It. My grandfather had told me of the deed. This was the envelope and the paper. There was leo such deed to be found. That makes me half believe that he did sign the will, thinking it was some- thing else. My story about the deed was not believed. As for Isaac Perry, my uncle said that he left for New York soon after my grandfather's visit to Richmond, doubtless when the will was drawn and signed. Ile could not have been near Jenison hall at the time of the shooting. Uncle Frank produced a letter from Isaac. received that very day from New York, in whieh he said that he was going to Europe as the body servant of a New York gentle- , man who had helped him to secure an education. \They locked me In the cellar and put a guard over ice until the sheriff could come up in the morning. Chris- tine, there wasn't a single chance for me to prove my hmocenee. I knew that Uncle Frank and Isaac Perry had arranged the whole devilish plot. How nicely they arranged it tool it snorked even better than they expect- ed. for I unwittingly damned myself. I ran never tell you of my feelings when the whole thing became clear to me.
