    Pat Garrett: Signed Court Document Partially printed DS "P. F. Garrett", 2 pages, 8" x 14", Uvalde County, January 2, 1892. Garrett was working as a customs collector in El Paso when he signed this court document, which attached him in the sum of $500 to appear as a witness in the case of The State of Texas versus F. H. Mendenhall, to be heard at the Reeves County Courthouse on March 1, 1892. The document is in fine condition with original folds.

    Sheriff Pat Garrett (1850-1908) is best known for gunning down Henry McCarthy, aka "Billy the Kid," in cold blood in Fort Sumner, New Mexico. In turn, Garrett himself was gunned down during a livestock dispute near Las Cruces, New Mexico.
