E. J. Andrews sworn say: INDENTIFIES DFT IN OPEN COURT.

Have known them about 4 or 5 years am on good terms with Defts Fulfer and Driggers. Had a talk with Deft Driggers and Fulfer 3 or 4 weeks before the difficulty on my  place. Deft Fulfer said that we had run one man off the widow Lynchs place and that no man would cultivate it by God if we can help it-his was in the presence and hearing of Dft Driggers. Not a word was said about Mr Suddereth at that time. I live 11 miles south of Bonham. Expect to live in this county the rest of this year. I passed by this new piece of ground shot over taken in the day after the fight. I think there was about half acre. The fence had been  moved.  ______  ______ to take in the bar leading into Mrs Lynchs farm.
