      And this defendant denies all and all manner of unlawful
combination and confederacy, wherewith he is by the said
Bill charged, without this, that there is any other matter,
cause or thing in said complainant's said bill of complaint,
contained or material, necessary for this defendant, to make
answer unto, and not herein, and hereby well and sufficiently
answered, confessed, traversed and avoided or denied, is
true to the knowledge or belief of this defendant; all which
matters and things' this defendant is ready and willing to
aver, maintain and prove as this Honorable Court shall direct,
and humbly prays, to be hence dismissed with his reasonable
costs and charges in this behalf most wrongfully sustained.
