    San Francisco's Morning Call Reports on the "Gunfight at the OK Corral". October 27, 1881 issue of The Morning Call, published in San Francisco, 20" x 26", bifolium 4 pp., neatly encapsulated in Mylar for ease of handling. Page 3, Column 6 has a news item titled "A Lively Fight. Four Cow-boys and the Trouble They Caused in Tombstone." In part: "A sanguinary shooting affray occurred on Fremont street this afternoon. Four cow-boys had been in town for a few days past... About three o'clock P.M., the Earp brothers and J. H. Halliday met the four, who drew upon them at once, when a lively fire commenced from the cow-boys against the three citizens. About thirty shots were fired, rapidly, when the smoke of battle cleared away, it was found that Jim and Frank McLoury were gasping in the agonies of death. Bill Clanton was mortally wounded and died shortly after. Morgan Earp was wounded in the shoulder, the wounds being thought serious; and V. W. Earp had a flesh wound in the calf of the leg. Halliday escaped unhurt, with several bullet holes to his clothing... Ike Clanton, one of the cow-boys, escaped with a slight wound, and is now in jail... Morgan Earp, after being wounded and fallen, struggled to his feet and continued to fight until he emptied his revolver..." Some minor edge chipping, but very good overall.
