Lincoln County’s famous lawman
Description                           Estimate: $2,500 - $3,000          

Third-person ADS signed within the text, one page, 8 x 5.5, May 14, 1881. Garrett writes out an invoice, in full: “Estate of Paul Dowlin here. to Pat F. Garrett for serving citation & order of Probate Court and makeing returns on the same, having served the same on Will Dowlin. Service fees $2.00, Return .50, Mileage 1.00, $3.50.” Endorsed on the reverse by James Tomlinson as probate judge and Ben Ellis as court clerk. In fine condition, with paper loss to upper margin. Accompanied by a beautiful custom-made leatherbound presentation folder. Provenance: Warren Anderson, 1996. Captain Paul Dowlin and his brother Will built Dowlin’s Mill in Lincoln County, New Mexico, in 1868, which operated as a grist and saw mill, blacksmith shop, general store, and post office; Paul Dowlin was shot dead by a disgruntled employee in 1877. Nevertheless, it remained a neutral site during the Lincoln County War and enjoyed visits from the colorful characters on both sides—both Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid were known to frequent the mill. This autograph document dates to just two months before Garrett tracked down and killed Billy the Kid. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
