Abstract: Suicide note of James P. Hendison, copied by Julius A. Harris for Jesse Garth. Letter explains reasons for action, her reaction to his confession of lying about buying paintings prevented him from relating details of lie about buying furniture; never had the money and unable to borrow it from friends or relatives; apologizes for the anguish has caused; her love, generosity, and affection are not enough to balance his deception; asks for forgiveness; explains his lies were never intended to be painful or deceptive; he only wanted her to be happy and has sincerely loved her; advises her to ask Mr. Cock to take her and children to Nelson, Kentucky immediately. From Mss. 65 G19, item 14, folder 1, box 1, Garth Family Papers, Special Collections Research Center, Swem Library, College of William and Mary.
