Re: LETTERS TO ROSCOE JAMES
I wonder if this letter or copies of it has been in circulation before. My reason for asking this is there are people who say they have many of Howk's letters.
Could this be where Phil and others got their info leading to the conclusion that Jesse was the leader of the KGC?
I think that this is where the story started and Howk used this to lead people to believe that there was a lot of money in order to get them to support him. Kind of like todays scam where people try to get money from people telling them they have inherited a bunch of money and get them to give money in order to get it or their bank account number. Glynda could tell you a story or two on this kind of scam.
Thanks again for sharing. The Cook family may be connected to the James family from Zanesville.
