Eldridge said he was returning from the post office & passed Carter's Mill when Fritts rode up & then Frnak Waddell came by riding a mule branded "U.S. & J.C." After some conversation (including a look at the mule's papers), Fritt traded with Waddell for the mule. Mule later taken. Fritts' dad John Fritts also testified.
