Telegram from Boies Penrose to Dr. R. A. F. Penrose, April 15, 1892, 10:54 PM

Boies informs his father that it's best to in Washington, D.C., but he'll will return home the next day. Boies explains that he has "things at good shape at the "War Department," meaning he is helping to keep the Invaders and Charles in federal hands rather than local or state authorities. The fear was that the Invaders and Charles would be lynched if not for federal custody. Boies also informs his father that Charles is expected in Cheyenne at midnight.
