I am fully award of Chandler and his writings, and realize that not every thing will be factual. That said 1920s is far closer to 1881 then 2018. Many people of that era were still alive including Earp. It will be interesting to read, see what is and do some research it on a deeper level. History is fluid.

As a side note I visit used book stores in search of older material, i.e. I have a copy of a biography of Robert E. Lee published in 1915. Wow, that book lays out things I have never heard of in the way Lee fought his battles an the controls over him.
Thank you for your help and advice.
