From the observations of the few preceding days, the feelings of mind can well be imagined. Yet, I continue to have as much business as ever, notwithstanding that Mr. Transue has called several from the street and endeavored to induce them not to call on me for assistance. I do not envy the happiness such a mind produces. As for myself I feel no disposition to inflict even a wound on his feelings, much less on his interest. My only hope is that he may see that he has unjustly done me wrong and feel that compunction which is calculated to produce reformation.
