Santa In A Stetson â€” Rebecca Winters
The young outlaw known as Billy the Kid spent the winter of 1880-1881 in Santa Fe-trying desperately to get out of its jail. He hired lawyers. He wrote the governor. He even tried digging his way out! Nothing worked. Billy only "escaped" the "safest jail in the Territory" in March 1881, when deputies finally escorted him to the railroad station for a trip to southern New Mexico-where a jury of his peers waited to convict him of murder. But just where was this invincible Santa Fe jail? Today, in Santa Fe, two plaques mark the spot, or rather, two competing spots . . . Lynn Michelsohn tracks down historical sources to identify the long-disputed location of Billy the Kid's Santa Fe jail and to provide this brief glimpse of life in the Wild West on the Southwestern Frontier. (10,000 words; 16 photographs, drawings, and maps) Recommended for Western history buffs, Billy the Kid aficionados, and anyone who loves Santa Fe.
With a reverent belief that the Heavenly Father is well pleased when his children not only appreciate His gracious dealings with them, but with loving gratitude let it be known to the world, this brief history of his leadings for twenty-seven years is given to the public. Should the reader detect errors in data here contained, kindly indulgence is begged and a charitable thought to the diverse and often meager sources from which information has been gleaned with untiring patience. Time and space have been allowed for allusion to only a very few of the choice spirits, whose deeds of sacrifice for this enterprise might justly fill the pages of its history. Many of these women are seldom seen or heard in public and their names are comparatively unknown outside their own circ le of friends, but their adherence to convictions of duty merits the highest commendation. In the schoolroom, in the shop, at the desk, in the solitude of the bereaved home, amid the cares of large households, with the ringing prattle of (childhood about them, their busy brains have planned, their hands have executed, and their hearts have prayed. Their counsels, interest, and labors have been unflagging and unfailing. For the speedy forgiveness of mistakes and for signal blessings that have contributed to make the record of this organization one of uninterrupted growth and progress, We thank thee, O Lord. Mary A. Lewis Ocean Park, Maine, Jan. 1, 1900
