to face ,h """- NcUher the bonding
company nor the Acme company know that
l am here. When I left Omaha to Novem
ber, my only Idea was to get as far away
as possible.. I had no definite plans, but In
the state of mind I was In at that time
most anything might Jiave happened. 1
did not really come to'myself until V had
been In Galveston two or three days. 1
have a faint recollection of stopping In
Kansas City a part of a day.. I stayed In
Galveston until I got over my nervousness
and then, for the! first time, realised my
sluntlnn For n week before the crisis
came I was on the verge of a physical and
mentnt collapse, not so much from fear of
punishment as from shame. I hava been
In the south ever since I went away, and
have now come back to make what amends
I can. I am here to take my medicine, no
matter how bitter It Is.
"I am on my way to see my wife now,
ahd then will telephone Mr. Olson, man
nger of the Acme company, and do what
ever he- says. All the money I had" an -J
that which belonged to fhe company Went
to feed the frenzied financiers and now. Its
up to the people I wronged to say what
shall be done with me."
A wnrrnnt foK Cook's arrest was Issued
from the court of Justice Cockrell In
Omaha on the complaint filed by the local
representative of the bonding company
which was surety for Cook.
