I'm so excited to tell you this good news! Roy and J.W. were found not guilty, just like I knew they would be! I'm so thankful that the jury knew these two men were innocent and only did what they had to do to protect me. I'm so proud to say that Roy is my husband, because he's the best husband I could ever ask for. This trial though, has been long and tiring.
We had to drive an hour down to Sumner for the first day of the trail, which was about three hours long. Roy and J.W. were called to the stand right away to testify, that's when I was most nervous to find out what happened that night. Finding out what happened made me sick to my stomach, but the worst part was seeing that nigger's mother sobbing.. it killed me. It isn't my families fault that her son was a nigger with no respect, she should've taught him better. We decided to stay the night in Sumner because the next day was the trail. The next day was a blob, and I don't recall what happened. The day after though, the nigger's uncle Mose Wrights took the stand and testified against my family. I pity that nigger, he sounded so dumb on that stand talking. He was just a nigger, no one cared what he had to say. Finally, it was the day were we founded out if they were guilty or not. THEY WERE FOUND NOT GUILTY! We all basically knew they weren't guilty, but I still was nervous. Those men on the jury are my heros, they saved my family.I have to go now and unpack, goodbye for now.
After my husband and J.W. were found not guilty, we received a lot of hate mail. We constantly received letters threatening our lives, but we ignored them. Our story eventually went out of business because many niggers stopped shopping there, so we had to close it down. We moved out of Money and spent the rest of our lives happily married.
