#206 - Frank James Estimate: $1,500+

An American outlaw, the older brother of Jesse James

ALS in pencil, one page both sides, 7.75 x 10.5, July 25, 1911. Written from Kearey, Missouri, a letter to "Johns," in full (spelling and grammar retained): "Your favor of the 20th received yesterday. You state that you would not have written me if you had not believed I would have gotten fair play yet you stated that, for me to be sure to have a distict understanding about my salary etc, reading between the lines it occurred to me, that unless I did this you were under the impression I might not get a square deal. Again had I gone with the expectation, that what you had written in regard to transportation, & really they might of turned it down and attempted to dictate their own terms, this would ruffeled me up and probably I would have come instantly home. These were my reasons for not going. What I hear from your friend or Mr. Openhimer and this proportion seems to be fair will go instantly to St. Louis if they desire my presence there. We will certainly bring his matter to a successful termination if they meet us half way." In fine condition, with a small edge stain.
