I have seen more injustice perpetrated in the course of the last two years than I had any idea of existing. When I see a man take undue advantages of the necessities of others, I immediately think he would do the same to me if he has ever the opportunity. I must advise you never to place yourself in the power of any man, but particularly in the power of one whom you know to have acted unjustly or to have taken and used undue advantages to others.
