He has been very much distressed by the discovery of Bedell's forgeries and was doubtless more or less worked up at the idea that he bad been evea innocently an aid to him in his nefarious work. We have found Mr. Dodge's books perfectly straight in every item, and not the slightest suspicion. has ever been attached to him."
