for them. But we most respectfully ask that such qualified divorce be granted only in the event the [court?] should hold the other two impossible from the law and facts which we however do not apprehend can be the case from the [illegible] which we have and have shown to your honor. It is [illegible] which be granted the decree of nullity or of absolute divorce as we believe the court fully warranted in granting either and submits a decree of both having the court to decide which to sign. Respectfully submitted . Sydney Smith p.q.
