Item # 646884

August 11, 1879

NEW YORK TIMES, Aug. 11, 1879 

* Doc Middleton described
* James M. Riley - David C.
* Outlaw & horse thief

The top of page 2 has an interesting & lengthy article headed: "MIDDLETON, THE OUTLAW" "Something About The Bandit of the Niobrara" "How He Became A Robber & A Murderer--Incidents In His Career". The article takes three-quarters of a column with much on his notorious life and "career". He also went by many aliases including James Riley, David Middleton, Texas Jack, Jack Lyons, Gold-Tooth Jack, and Gold-Tooth Charley. Doc Middleton was an outlaw and horse thief whose exploits of stealing perhaps 2,000 horses over a two-year period earned a spot in the Wild West Show.
Eight pages, very nice, clean condition.
