Payne to make any effort to hire Lewy out or control him in any way previous to the year 1842? Answer. No-I have no knowledge of his making any effort to hire him out out at any time & as to control, all I know is that previous to that time, James M. Payne, several times requested me to tell Lewy to come to him, which messages I delivered & whether he went to him or not I cannot say. And further this deponent saith not. Benj.
