John King Fisher: Signed Arrest Warrant, 1884 Partially printed document signed "King Fisher" as Deputy of Uvalde County, 2pp., 6.75" x 8.5", dated February 23, 1884, an arrest warrant for one B.F. Wilson. Sheriff J.B . Boatright has engrossed the Sheriff's Return portion of the document giving an account of the arrest. Warmly toned, with a blind embossed seal of Uvalde County. In near fine condition, this document boasts the most desirable variant signature by Fisher. A notorious gunslinger John King Fisher (1854-1884) was a cowboy, horse thief, cattle rustler, dandy, Mexican border raider, and a cold-blooded killer. He would meet his grisly end less than three weeks later, after being shot an unlucky 13 times in a gunfight. Apparently, he was unable to fire off a single shot in his defense.
