It's Monday morning, April 3, 1882. If I am not mistaken the time of day was between 9 and 9 in the morning. Jesse said, "It's an awful hot day," He takes off his coat, unbuttons his vest. Making a statement out loud "I guess I will take off my pistols for fear someone will see them if I walk in the yard. Then unbuckles his belt and tossed aside his holstered revolvers. Why was he not telling Bob and Charley Ford to do the same. If Jesse feared people would see him in the yard armed seems the same would have applied to his friends. When was the bank robbed in St. Jo, before, the day of or after the shooting of Jesse Woodson James?
