T.D. Kingsberry, Arkadelphia, Arkansas, to Governor Harris Flanagin, Little Rock, Arkansas

Kingsberry complains that Mr. Neeley, who is facing charges, called on him in anger, blamed him for his trouble, and threatened to bring charges against him. Kingsberry writes that he thinks "rather low for an officer to expect to cover his own charges & faults by charging others." In Kingsberry's opinion, Neeley is facing charges because he failed to do his duty. In closing his letter, Kingsberry invites Flanagin to send Neeley a copy of the letter. Kie Oldham collection
