Thanks Ben. That's the text. Some pictures and drawings are

are not shown and a couple of quotes also.
The first is a full page picture of Tom McLaury with this quote from journalist and letter writer Clara S. Brown.
""At the Inquest yesterday; the damaging fact was ascertained that only two of the cowboys were armed, it thus being a most unequal fight."
Then a very interesting drawing from above the fight site showing the eight men and two horses.
Then a drawing of the fight in the wrong place, the Fremont entrance to the OK Corral. It was west of there at Fly's.
Then a large picture looking west on Allen Street from near the Oriental with this quote in it, "I did not see Tom McLaury with a pistol. My mind is a little confused about that part of it."--Ruben C. Coleman" [If he can be confused being a partial eye witness, we are allowed to be confused also]
Then pictures of Wyatt and Frank.
Then a drawing Wyatt and John Flood made of the gunfight area in the 1920s that took them 6 hours. It is very faint, magnifying glass needed.
Lee Silva makes his point clearly and it needs to be considered by anyone interested in this subject.
He doesn't mention Keefe at all but seems to say Fuller took the gun from the little house, meaning Keefes identifying it later in court won't fly well.
I won't hate you. LOL The whole idea is for those interested to read and reach their own conclusion or decide a sure conclusion is not possible. The discussion is intended to be fun and hopefully interesting. The conclusions are for each person to make to satisfy themselves.
Who knows if Tom was armed or not?
Hi Tom, I actually had this bookmarked and thought I'd post it up here in case it can save some stamp and envelope fees. Assuming this is the same article, that is, but I'm pretty sure everything Kenn... more
I have the original issue, but the "tab" with the heading Article 2 in fainter ink certainly fooled me ... that's easy enough, Tom will say ... is there a link to Doctor Roberts'[s] revolutionary* art... more
I did a bit of perusing, but only within the website, and couldn't turn up anything resembling the article you mentioned. Of course, it's entirely possible it's there and I was simply outsmarted by th... more
Ben ... looked on the archive pages and noticed that my October 2006 issue had a special cover, different from that online ... looks like if you cough up four or five dollars you're able to read every... more
I'm thinking those other links might be the images you're talking about, but unfortunately, they're not loading. At least not on my phone or PC. Would you mind if I get a physical copy from you so I c... more

Tom, thanks so much for thinking to do that!! You're doing better than I am, I d already forgotten to email you. I would've shown up kicking myself because I'd totally spaced it. I greatly appreciate ... more
Glad to be able to share. Back when I started down this Earp/Tombstone road I couldn't buy all the books I wanted and needed so I found and saved just about every article I could find. So fortunately ... more
I think Felehey may have seen both McLaurys with pistols, but I think it very doubtful Mrs. Collier saw Tom. I think she is referring to Frank. Frank was bent over from the slug in his gut and from he... more
someone should have asked him to restate his words with an emphasis on clarity and what exactly he was trying to say, in my opinion. Too bad there were no lawyers from some other part of the ... more
