between Lawyer Robinson’s son Jimmie
and H Hynes I suppose John knew
Mr Hynes he was a military student

or rather expelled the difficulty arose abrod
Ellen Finell Robbinson shot

[torn] but did not kill him
[torn] longer & they have not

I do not know whether it is true or not
Hynes was taken up to Mrs Finells
the next morning after she was shot. Mr Clark
