Depot of James J. Mayers contd. 13 Answ. I consider this last question equally improper but as general Blackburn insists on it, I will answer it likewise - I do not know whether I understand what you mean by an incidental or eventual fee If it is meant a fee that depends on the event of the suit or what is generally called a contingent fee - I answer that I have no reason to expect any such or no contract or agreement has been made between myself & the dept respecting such a fee nor has he ever promised me such a fee I have received no fee in this case as yet, but I expect the sum of $20 but this by no means depends on the event of the suit - nor is any time stipulated when that is to be paid

No other questions being asked this deponent further sayeth not- James J. Mayers
