The above has been read to me, and is correct.
Attested to and written by Henry Page, Clerk.
George H. Richardson, a witness produced on behalf of
claimant, being duly sworn, answers and says to special in-
terrogatories filed herewith:
To the first interrogatory:
A. inside in Snow Hill, Worcester county. Mary land.
2d: .
A. I was so examined; I stated to the register that I 'be-
lieved the statement which had been previously made to said
registers respecting a speech of Mr. Frank! in, made in Snow
Hill in February 1861, by Mr Lecompte was correct; I
stated further that I. did hear a conversation or argument
between Mr. Franklin and E. K Wilson. Esq., vvhich con-
versation I thought occurred early in 1861, in which Mr.
Franklin argued that there was a constitutional right of se-
cession; Mr. Wilson differed with him declaring that no
such right existed, and remarked to Mr. Franklin that if one
go into this matter we do it. with halters around our necks ;
I said further, that during that conversation I did not re-
member to have heard Mr. Franklin say that he was a seces-
sionist or in favor of secession; I stated further that since
that time within twelve months I had heard Mr. Franklin
state, that he had never been in favor of secession.
Q. Were there of your knowledge any other witnesses be-
fore the said registers touching the disqualification of Mr.
Franklin ?
Answer. There was one other, Mr. James S. Lecompte, of
whom I spoke before.
Ques. Do you or not know that W. 11. W. Farrow was a
witness before the registers ?
Ans. I do not.
Ques. You have lived in the sain town with Mr. Franklin
have you not frequently yees and conversed with him since
the early part of 1861, to the 1st January 1865?
