    Stage Line Transportation of Twelve Indians "Due me $78.00 Transportation and Meals" Fort Thomas, Arizona Territory, 1896. Two page letter 8.5" x 11" from Fort Thomas and Globe Stage Line, Fort Thomas, Ariz. July 10, 1896, (addressed to) W. K. Meade Esq, (U. S. Marshall) "Dear Sir, At the commencement of U. S. Marshall court in Solomonville, I received a telegram from Globe from Sheriff Thompson or me of his deputies to have transportation for about 12 Indians from San Carlos, I done so, I carried 13 Indians and one white man (Indian Farmer). I have not yet received anything for it. Mr. Thompson told me you had paid part to Capt. Myers and part to Andy Alexander, and thought it best for me to write you, and get orders from you on these parties for the money, there where 14 - $70.00 and cash I paid for meals $8.00 total $78.00. I believe before Mr. Thompson will have me loose it he will pay it out of his pocket, as he ordered the Transportation, but as long as you have already paid the money and no one in tilled to it but myself it should not be necessary for any one to be out it. I wish you would please send me orders to collect the amount you have paid for transportation & Meals, there is due me $78.00 Transportation & Meals. I done the work, and no one but Mr. Thompson ordered the Transportation, please let me hear form you & oblige, yours Respty. M. A. Leahy". Very good content.
