I wish now, men of the
jury, to tell you of the most a outrageous thing which has been done to
me,—a thing which more than anything else overwhelmed me with dismay
in the course of the trial; for you will thus see even more clearly the fellow's
baseness, and I, by venting before you my grief for what has happened, shall
find, as it were, a sort of relief. The deposition, which I thought was there,
and which afforded the strongest evidence in support of my case, I did not find
in the box.
