Colyar Tells Where

Another in our series of new transcriptions of contemporary articles on the Leo Frank case.

Atlanta Journal

Sunday, May 25th, 1913

Editor The Journal:

I herewith hand you a telegram in answer to one that I got Chief of Police Beavers to send, which explains one of Thomas B. Felder’s visions, which appeared in the Morning Eye-Opener of Saturday, and from my relations and connections with this astute and would-be bribe giver, my conscience tells me that society at large would be better off if T. B. Felder and myself were both in Sing Sing.

(Signed) A. S. COLYAR.

The telegram referred to follows:

Ossining, N. Y., May 24, 1914.

J. L. Beavers.

Chief of Police, Atlanta, Ga.

No record of A. S. Colyar can be found in Sing Sing prison.

JOHN S. KENNEDY, Warden.
