It is also evident from an instruction of the said endorsement that an effort has been made by some one to erase the said words by scratching them out but the effort was not successful and the endorsement is now plain. Your orator also states that in the face of the Bill of [illegible] the word 'redeemable' has been inserted in the hand-writing of said Stevens doubtedly at the same time the endorsement aforesaid was made. All of which facts go to sustain the allegations of the original Bill & your orator prays that the said [illegible] Stevens be made [illegible] to this & all the allegations hereof Bill and [illegible] the same as well as the original Bill on oath & that your Honor would decree as prayed for in the original Bill & g't such other & further relief as to equity may deem meet etc. H.H.
