I do now confess it; ye do now bear witness.

I was wrong.

Hope A. Lewis was right.

There is no middle ground, no give and take, no “we were both right.” There is but her pure, unadulterated rightness, and my vile, filthy wrong assertions.

I did not state the facts correctly. Worse than that, I stated facts that simply were not in any way able to be twisted into that which might be considered by even some to be truth. No truth could be found in them, and had I said the same thing with my current knowledge, I would be a liar of the worst sort.

Hope, however, stated perfectly and succinctly what is, what was, and what always has been. Her honesty is surpassed only by her knowledge of the situation.

Here it is, for all of you to see, acknowledge, bear witness to, and rub my face in:

THERE IS A DOOR BETWEEN SUTHERLAND AND FIVE POINTS.

It is there now. It has been there, according to one who certainly knows (Thomas Prettyman) as long as Five Points has existed as a residence hall.

Hope A. Lewis was right.

I was wrong.

That is all.

the wound is deep, and I suspect my ego shall not soon recover.

We'll see in a few months how the scar looks

Just a slight consolation: I was also unaware of this fact.

Your humility is completely disarming. I am both blown away and a little nervous about this. I'm not quite sure what to do, honestly, and I feel confused.

Don't worry about the wound, I'll doctor it :)

Yes, Hope, as I told you, if you admit to me being right about something, this could be the start of a very healthy relationship.

And that REALLY scares me.

Yeah, well, maybe I'll try really hard to find something that you're right about.

But I'm not sure, because whether or not it's healthy, our friendship is quite functional, and I'd hate to scare you.
