T. J. Irwin his spiritual advisor.
"Hamon died repentant" said the minister.
"We prayed together to Cod
The preacher's testimony came as a "shock" to the defense.
Rev. Mr. Irwin told of Mr. Hamon reviewing his past life
when the oil king lay in tho Ardmorc sanitarium. Hamon
"sought salvation" when he knew death was near and called
Jus spiritual advisor to his bed "to make his peace with God."
"You know my heart as the
dying man said Rev. Mr. Irwin
no man. 1 have deceived no man. Clara and I have been
living in adultery. We both did wrong. I being the stronger
of the two should not have done it and she should not have
done it" the minister declared Hamon told him.
The preacher also declared Ihimon had said he (the oil
king) had "paid Clara for the third lime" to go out of his life.
