Friends, this is probably the one time I ever heard of John Wesley Hardin ever backing down. Here, however, the author says that he saw Wes Harding back down and this old timer give us an unusual incident in the hectic life of the most notorious outlaws of the old west. Over the years, I’ve covered a lot of poker stories but, if this is true as claimed, the story deserves to be in the Poker Hall of Fame. Until now, the incident is known only to a few. Here is the story entitled:

I SAW WES HARDIN BACK DOWN

By: John M. Lane

as told to James Hines

Please read this. This is an overlooked story I found in an unusual and different magazine. There were many a western story published – the common ones about Cowboys and Indians are listed on Ebay every day but the rarer ones about the outlaws of the Old West are seldom found. Collectors treasure them and their price guide value rises every day. They are hard to find. I hunt them out because really the better, untold and rarer stories were published in the rest.

Here’s one of ‘em.

FOLLOWING PURCHASE AND PAYMENT, IF YOU WILL WRITE ME OF YOUR SPECIAL NAME OR INTEREST, I WILL DO A FREE SEARCH OF MY COLLECTION AND UNINDEXED STORIES AND NAMES. TOM RUSSELL COLLECTION

IF I FIND SOMETHING THAT I THINK MERITS YOUR INTEREST, I WILL WRITE A REVIEW AND PLACE IT ON EBAY AND GIVE YOU NOTICE AND A HEAD START TO BUYITNOW!

Following my retirement, I have dedicated my remaining hours to indexing the Genealogy of our western heroes. During my research, I discovered that thousands of our kinfolk lay unfound and unrecognized on some book dealer’s shelf gathering dust. Because Old Western History and Memorabilia was printed before computer indexing, I index every item I sell.

This complete index will be bound and included in this offering at no additional cost.

Humbly, I am trying to keep our history alive.

I hope you appreciate the effort.

Folks, sooner or later – Genealogists are going to realize that their family kinfolks are laying on some dealer’s dusty shelves. If I can contribute to finding one little name or photo of that long lost ancestor you have been waiting to find, it’s worth all the time I spend. As a tribute to the honor of our American Ancestors, Forefathers, and even our Outlaws, my indexed listings will include all names mentioned in the story from this time on.

I SAW WES HARDIN BACK DOWN

By: John M. Lane as told to James Hines

OLD OUTLAW LEGENDS AND

MEMORABILIA IS RAPIDLY DISAPPEARING

While others clip ads from magazines, I save history. It’s a shame that our past is being lost. It’s as simple as that.

My wife kids me that after I find a piece I like, buy it, read it, research it, take a picture, scan it, write the blurb, pay the Ebay entry fee and commission, that I end up making about 50 cents an hour. But, OH HOW I LOVE THIS OLD WESTERN HISTORY. What a story, Rare Story!!! Great Pictures. You will love it as it was published in this old complete western magazine of many years ago. The issue is in good condition, the cover is in vibrant color.

As clearly stated in my description, this is featured story in a rarely found and seldom read unusual and complete western magazine. I don't give out name of publication or date because I have caught competitors copying my index and work and trying to sell it as theirs. I hope you understand.

Buyer pays postage of $3.50 First Class Mail to U. S. ; $5.00 Priority; $13.25 for International Mail. Texans must pay 8-¼ % sales tax. Thanks,

Tom
