    Graham County, Arizona: Grand Jury Subpoena for Trial of "Kid" Dobbs. A subpoena commanding Henry Fowler to appear before the Grand Jury of Graham County, Arizona Territory, on November 14, 1883 as witness in a criminal action against "Kidd Dobbs et. al." The subpoena, 8" x 6.25", was issued on a blank subpoena form and filled in with ink and signed by the district attorney on November 6, 1883. The backside of the form is filled in in ink by the sheriff of Graham County, indicating that the subpoena was served to Fowler on November 8, 1883. Garrett Hunt "Kid" Dobbs (1857-?) was born in Texas and was involved in the cattle business most of his life. He was a friend of both Billy the Kid and Pat Garrett. Dobbs was in trouble with the law on several occasions, though the reason behind his criminal prosecution referred to in this document is not known. There is a horizontal fold in the middle of the subpoena along with chips along the edges of the document. Overall, the document is in good condition.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
