Part Third: The Stockmen's Invasion Preparations

Sticking to Mercer's Banditti of the Plains, Martin lays out the planning involved in the Invasion. Compare to William C. Irvine's letters to Charles B. Penrose in this collection (see ah09626_106-126 and ah09626_138-149). Martin also mentions John Clay's involvement (more here), along with Clay's book My Life on the Range (1924).
