"I am pleased to know that my old father will receive my remains and have me put away in the clay of this earth, as has been done by others. I wanted to confess this two or three weeks before I did and the more I thought of it the more anxious I was
to confess. I first made known my guilt to Bates and Turner, who were preachers. They came to see me when in jail in Nashville. On last Thursday night was when I think my sins were forgiven."
