Andrew Rabb

Big Bernard June 11—1825


Agreeably to Your summon I have proceded thus far but on account of the complaint with which I am afflicted, I am unable to ride any further: If however my evidence should be material, I shall perhaps be able in a day or two to come to Town—All I know in this case is what almost every other person knows, with, perhaps, this exception—A few days ago, when in company with Mr. Buckner, he observed, that If you prosecuted Jackson, it would only be thro' malice, and that he (Buckner) would fight for Jackson " as long as he had a drop of blood in his veins "
