Partly-printed DS, one page, 8.25 x 14, September 6, 1893. Voucher for a payment to Isaac A. Steel for his six-day employment "by Jno. W. Hixon…as one of his posse comitatus, to assist in executing the following Capias Writs, to-wit: Bill Dalton Bill Doolin Slaughter Kid Ed Nibbs alias Arkansaw Tom alias Jones." Signed at the conclusion by Steel, "I. A. Steel," as well as Deputy US Marshal John Hixon, "Jno. W. Hixon," and Marshal Evett Dumas Nix, "E. D. Nix." Blindstamped in the lower left with an official Oklahoma Territory seal. In very good to fine condition, with tears and paper loss to top edge.

This document comes from the aftermath of the Battle of Ingalls, one of the final epic gunfights of the Old West outlaw era. Following their trail of train robberies and bank holdups, the Doolin-Dalton Gang, or 'Wild Bunch,' had holed up in the town of Ingalls, Oklahoma. Marshal Nix organized a posse to capture the gang, hiring Steel as one of his men. Hixon led the charge into the town and took fire form 'Arkansas Tom' Jones, who shot and mortally wounded one the posse's marshals. Bill Doolin shot and killed Special Deputy Marshal Richard Speed, while Bill Dalton fatally wounded Deputy Marshal Lafayette Shadley. Ultimately, the posse only managed to wound two of the outlaws but did capture 'Arkansaw Tom,' who was sentenced to fifty years in prison.
