    The Principal Chief of the Creek Indian Nation Writes from Indian Territory to Warn of Activity by the Notorious Dalton Gang. In this February 2, 1891 letter L. C. Perryman, distinguished Chief of the Creek Nation, writes to N. B. Moore, a government official, to warn that "two desperate characters have been seen around here by the name of Daulton [sic]." He continues, "I have been having Marshals and other officers watch their movements. Today I am informed that one Six Shooter Jack a train robber and one Red who lately broke jail and the 2 Daultons were seen together some days ago about Turkey foot ranch and started this way.... Capt. Tackey Grayson knows the Daulton boys-I do not know if they are preparing to do any thing but they are bad and their business is robbing, etc. and it will be well to have a good watch for such people. They are all whites (emphasizes Perryman)." He marks the report "Confidential. Two 6.5" x 8.75" pages in excellent condition, with original envelope.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
