the archive on Texas Jack's board. In February 2010, Butch Badon and I had a lengthy discussion there of the Hayhurst and comparisons to the various versions of the Spicer from Turner, the EPITAPH, and the NUGGET. I tried to provide a history (based on my experience) of the use of the various sources. I also discussed the importance of having all of this sources in order to get a clearer understanding of what happened. Once you figure out the order of things, it is easier to understand the strategies of the prosecution and the defense, why witnesses were called when they were, etc. It is a starting point at least. I haven't had a chance to review the Williams' testimony to be able to respond directly to your questions there. Best! Gary

            I think the Hayhurst exists, perhaps at ASU in Tempe. There is another book length manuscript by Hayhurst there only indirectly related. I think anything can be done online if you know the magic. I... more
