And declares his most lasting gratitude for what thus been done for him. All this too is written when the complainant had nearly completed his 24th year-- had for some years been residing in the immediate vicinity of his fathers property & amongst those enabled to give him the most correct information of all his rights. and it is to this correspondence that the complainant now refers as affording the strongest evidence in his possession of the correctness of his allegations against the character & fair dealing if his acknowledged benefactor & friend. The sd Richard M Scott survived the period of this correspondence for about two years, & up to the time of his decease, not one word of charge, claim or dissatisfaction was ever heard from the complainant. How long the complainants proferred & wanted gratitude out lived his benefactor may be seen by the gross & unfounded calumnies now attended to be heaped upon his memory.
