He is such a crafty schemer that his
purpose even in this proposal of arbitration was not made that he might be rid
of his disputes with me, but that, as he had for eleven years previously carried
on his knavery, so now, by rendering invalid the decisions given in my favor by
the arbitrator, he might afresh institute his malicious proceedings against me,
and elude the present suit.
