Please believe I was not in that house!!!
I really and truly dont (sic) know anything about the whole mess. I am sorry I had to leave but I couldn't listen to them lie anymore especially with you there. I'm only begging you to believe me. I'm telling the truth. Thank you for the meal. I'm sorry I let you down. Don't let them arrest me Jim - please.
Thanks and love,
