Wednesday, April 25th, 1860

Still in Sumpter. To day the jury in my case came into Court with a verdict of "not guilty" thus setting me free again. on the occasion I treated ? to all the champagne wine that the town of Sumpter did afford. And for the balance of the day and night myself & friends got into as comfortable a little "tight" as it ever befell man's lot to encounter with every thing passing off to the entire satisfaction of all concerned. The remains of Madison Hall Bracken started for Crockett in the control of his father, to be interred in the grave yard at Crockett. at home hands still in the cotton. weather clear & rather cool.
