In his letter he claims it cost him thirty dollars to send his household goods from New York out here. Now this may' be true and we suppose that it is, but when he adds that it cost him a hundred and thirty dollars to send them back again, we object and we must call this, a most willful lie, for the gentleman must certainly be aware that Ids goods were seized under the absconding debtor act and they were' sold, so it cost him nothing to send them back.
