In 1891, Charlie Culver who by then was a veteran member of the Detroit Police Department having entered it in an ex-officio capacity as aid to his father, the town's first truant officer, was making plans to forego police work and enter law. 
   His early choice of schools had been the University of Michigan, but the Detroit College of Law had recently been organized and this gave an ambitious urban student an opportunity to work and study at the same time. So he remained in Detroit, attending night calsses at law school, reading his Blackstone between telphone calls at Police Headquarters. 
   In 1983, he left the department and went into the law office of Walter Denton Smith, who was the first secretary of Detroit College of Law. Mr. Smiths office was on the top floor of the Hammond Building, a."

The other deponent Wait WRIGHT saith that the said James STEVENS house was a place of resort for scouts? and persons on secret service in time of the war; that he has known the said James to have ......led them through dangers and once in particular saved a packet, carried by a British Officer, from being taken by the Enemy by concealing it within his own jacket? ...... ... that time and many others on the Party relieved and comforted by the said James STEVENS.  Sworn before me Alex'r FISHER, J.P.  [Signed by] Zenus ROSS Wait WRIGHT" 
  

 `````````````````````````  (I have a copy of the letter somewhere in my boxes of paper but I am doing this from memory so I might not have the names/places correct.)  Filmed with this petition, there is a copy of a letter which had been written from one Stevens to his brother who lived somewhere around Bastard? Wolford? Burritts? in Leeds/Grenville or Carleton.   The writer was telling his brother about how another brother [William?] was ridden out of town on a rail for doing __ ??? ___ with Daniel or David Crippen's wife.  Unfortunately the word of exactly what he did 
was illegible!  The writer also was writing to his brother to let him know that their father had died a couple of months before and telling him how their mother was doing.   If I remember correctly, the letter also made reference to Pittsford.
