Books [Dr. J. R. Carver]
“There are three, reasons why so many people think that he was not killed, one is that his sister came out to see him and then did not go to his grave, but went direclly east. That his horse was never seen again, is another reason. Third , isthat Pete Maxwell and Pat Garrett were his friends, and that a Mexican was buried instead of Billy the Kid, and that he Billy tho' Kid went down in Texas on the Rio grande.”
I should have had another interview with Dr. Carver, but I did not get to fill the appointment.
