Staunton July 24th 1862 Gentlemen: I presented the petition to Judge Thompson this day - Sheffey not having seen Lilly.. The judge makes this endorsment [endorsement] which I think will justify you in proceeding to sell “July 24th 1862 - I have no power to make the [illegible] [illegible] for by the within petition in vacation. If it were term time I would do so without hesitation. I would advise all concerned to do by consent, before the Term, what I would direct to be done if the court were in session“ Signed Lucas P Thompson He then said to me, it might be well enough to get Lillys consent- but whether he gave it or not, the sale had better be made- Very Respectfully, Thos J Michie
