Dear Paul

The jury started in 6 & 6 & wound up 4 to 8 against me[.] No one in town expected any such thing[.] It was a fluke all around. There really was no evidence. I am quite sure it could not happen again. I am not sure whether I will be tried again but would not be surprised surprised if I was made more trouble— still somehow I don dont care. I think I will get the Unions to help me in the next if there is a xxx next so dont worry about me about me. I am in good fighting shape & they will never get me. Will write tomorrow — D
