: [reading J.R.'s final letter to him aloud
] John Ross, if you're reading this, it means I'm dead. And if I'm dead, that means Barnes is coming after you. You must crush him before he can win. I promised your Uncle Bobby that taking down Harris Ryland would be my masterpiece. I bet my last nickel Barnes'll join forces with Ryland to destroy us. Use what I've given you to take from them what they want to take from us. When you've done that, Bobby will know what to do.
