A man ... wants to give his wife ... the interest in a little homestead where her sister lives. How wicked to have found fault with it. How petty to have found fault with it. (Hosea Knowlton in his closing argument.)
Yes I understood that part- but these people seem to be arranging a sting and probably hand-picked agents to look like a certain ethnicity- like people they were after- in order to fool someone into giving themselves away as a traitor.
Since it is out of context, it seems so simple, yet I don't think it is that simple, is my point.
