RE: The Legend Of John Wilkes Booth
Dr. Blaine Houmes was kind enough to send me a series of documents that he had obtained in the past from the Dr. Richard Mudd files (now at Georgetown University) and Fred Black's files (Oakland University). Thank you, Blaine!

Over time I shall post several of these papers. The first is a newspaper correspondent's account of a visit to the Garrett home in 1867. I thought it was quite interesting. For example, regarding the loss of his barn, Richard Garrett states, "Nobody ever paid us for it." I believe this is in agreement with what researchers such as Dave Taylor have found. Some authors, Eleanor Ruggles being one, claimed Edwin Booth reimbursed the Garrett family for their lost barn.
