Colorado State Penitentiary.
Hon. N. C. Crews, Dear Sir: I ain
enclosing herewith a copy of a decis
ion banded down by the eupreme court
of Colorado In regard to my case.
which Tvas hastily tried in district
court of Otero county at La Junta,
Colo., in July, 1911, where I was In
stantly convicted and sentenced to
death and my aged father, a man of
near 83 years, was also convicted ao
an accomplice and sentenced Irom 30
to 50 years at hard labor in state pen
itentiary. I was sentenced to death
tjfr. protecting my aged father and
mrither, in their own home, and my
llfo at the cost of the lives of the two
torutal, inhuman, prejudiced, Negro-
hating, lawless policemen who were
assaulting my mother and father, and
seeking to murder mo.
But after being denied a new trial
by the1 Judge trying my case, my at
torney, Ex-Judge Lyman I. Henry of
Pueblo, Colo., assisted by W. B. Town-
send, attorney-at-law of Denver, Colo.,
aided at creat expense by good citi
zens of both races and members of
my lodge, the It. T. Coles lodge. No.
86, A. F. and A. M., Kansas City, Mo.,
and my father's. Prudent lodge, No. 6,
A. F. and A. M., Kansas City, Kas.,
I succeeded in getting our case to the
supreme court, which readily reversed
the Judgment of the lower court, and
granted mo a new trial which will
Now, dear sir, the fight has Just
commenced as the prejudiced class In
that community are determined that
the sentence imposed on my father
' and myself be carried out, and they
will use every means in their power
to gain their hellish ends, and to
thwart all In their desire to see me
get Justice. I appeal to you for finan
cial aid, if you can assist mo In any
way through the columns of your pa
per, or otherwise, to meet the finan
cial demands involved, it will be great
ly appreciated. My reason for sending
you a copy ot the supreme court s de
cision and comments, is for you- to see
clearly it was not an act trying or at
tempting to defy the law in any -way,
but one of protecting nly parents and
tny life. I again beg to state that
am a worthy member of E. T. Coles
lodge, No. 8G, Kansas City, Mo., and
any father, Joseph Harris, of Prudent
lodge, No. 6, Kansas City, Kas., being
a 32 degree man and a 33 degree gen
tleman. So I appeal to you most ear
nestly, that you may do for us what
you can. You may refer to your re
spective lodges as to our standing.
Should you ifeel disposed to aid ub,
forward eaane to my mother, Mrs.
Clara Harris, No. 1319 River street,
Canon City, Colo., as she is striving
to gain us Justice and every one looks
to her to bo paid fur any expense in
currcd in helping father and me.
Please" acknowledge receipt to me,
Hoping for your assistance, I am.
