    Description

    AUTOGRAPH BY FAMOUS LAWMAN/OUTLAW HENRY BROWN 1881 - Henry Newton Brown (1857-1884) was a lawman and also an outlaw in his very short life. Henry Brown was raised in Rolla, Missouri, by relatives until the age of seventeen, when he left home and headed west. He drifted through various cowboy jobs in Colorado and Texas, supposedly killing a man in a gunfight in the Texas Panhandle.

    This is a very nice historical document for an arrest warrant for Mr. McDean for shooting his pistol in public, commonly know as a "six shooter" at Tascosa, Texas Oct. 13, 1881. Signed H. N. Brown. Very fine condition.
