Beschreibung

Original typed short story manuscript by the author of Pioneer Adventures (Privately printed, 1948), Pioneering in Southwest Texas: True Stories of Early Day Experiences in Edwards and Adjoining Counties (Austin: Steck, 1949), and The Gray School and the Cherokee College at Cherokee, San Saba County, Texas (Bandera, Texas: Hunter Publishing Co., 1950). Gray was born in 1861 and died in 1960, buried in San Saba Texas. This particular story appears to have been written in 1956 as the included receipt is dated July 10, 1956. This is the story of a rancher in Edwards County named Jim. Jim was not popular with the young ladies of the county, yet he wanted to find a wife. Unable to attract a local girl, Jim "ordered" himself a bride from Arkansas. In a borrowed hack, Jim headed to the railroad station to pick up the young lady. Traveling back to his ranch with his new bride, Jim soon discovered that finally, he had all that he need in life. Manuscript is 16 pages (page 25 - 40) and includes a carbon copy, both signed by the author. Both copies are connected using brads. At the front of the manuscript is a typed receipt from The Court of Llano Texas for the receipt of $3.50 from Frank Gray for two copies each of: A Romance in Edwards County in Open Range Days, and A Pioneer Tragedy at the Hanshy Store on Cherokee. Receipt is attached to the manuscript using cellophane tape Light soiling throughout manuscript along with creasing to top corners of first 2 pages. Receipt soiled and with old tape residue where attached to document. Very good. Receipt, manuscript and carbon copy housed in worn manila envelope with title and author hand-written by Gray. We are unable to locate any information about this story ever being published; however, Adams' Herd and Six Guns have mention of his earlier works. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 37532
