This is a letter of introduction for Dr. J.F. Hibberd, who has gone to Columbus partly for a Medical Convention but more important, to obtain a pardon for two friends confined to the State Prison for robbing a widow. The Doctor and many others, among them a Judge Twain, believe them to be innocent, and the writer asks Finley to use his influence -- saying he can rely on the opinion of the Judge implicitly.
