Public Papers of Governor A.B. Fleming of West Virginia, February 6, 1890 to March 4, 1893 (Charleston, WV: Moses W. Donnally, Public Printer, 1893).

“Isaiah Mullins, convicted in the circuit court of Lincoln county, August term, 1891, of unlawful cutting and sentenced to one year’s confinement in the penitentiary. Pardoned December 8, 1891, for reasons entered in the pardon record as follows: The application for pardon is supported by the recommendation of the Hon. Thos. H. Harvey, the judge who presided at the trial, and who says: ‘This man Mullins, when sober, is represented as quiet and peaceable and tries to provide for his family, which, I understand is quite large, and who are now in very needy circumstances, depending largely on the assistance of neighbors and friends. I am inclined to believe it would now be a mercy to his little children to exercise the Executive clemency, and pardon him, which I respectfully recommend.’ The prosecuting attorney, clerk of circuit court, and nine of the jurors, also ask for the prisoner’s release.” (p. 96-97)

“John Brumfield, convicted in the circuit court of Lincoln county, February term, 1892, of unlawful shooting, and sentenced to confinement in the penitentiary for two years. Pardon granted November 21, 1892, for reasons entered in the pardon record as follows: It appears that the prisoner was but fifteen years of age at the time of the commission of the offense. The petition for pardon is supported by the recommendation of the Hon. Thos. H. Harvey, the judge who sentenced the prisoner; by Rome Lambert, the person who was shot; by Wade Lambert, the father of the injured party; by most of the persons who witnessed the difficulty; by the prosecuting attorney; and a large number of citizens.” (p. 103)

An unknown local correspondent from Leet in Lincoln County, West Virginia, offered the following items, which the Logan Banner printed on July 25, 1924:

Dear Banner: Our news has been very scarce for quite awhile, but am glad to say the weather is improving nicely.

Miss Thelma Huffman entertained Mr. W.C. Brumfield Sunday with good music.

Mr. and Mrs. Lonnie Lambert are visiting friends and relatives in Leet this past week.

Mr. and Mrs. Bruce Hatfield spent a few days the guests of Mrs. Samuel Lambert.

Mr. Ossie Dial seemed to have been broken hearted Sunday. The reason was he lost his sweetheart Saturday night.

Mr. L. Hoffman is spending a few days at home with his wife and children.

Miss Nellie Lucas went to Sunday school Sunday and reported a nice time.

Mr. Jim Brumfield and his son were seen going through here late Monday evening.

Miss Pearl Brumfield stayed home all day Sunday. Wonder why?

There will be a pie supper at the Laurel Fork Saturday night. Hope there will be a large gathering.

Mrs. W.M. Payne made a flying trip to Sunday school Sunday.

Most everybody seems to be busy now-a-days picking berries.

Misses Drury and Edith Frye were at Sunday school.

Mr. and Mrs. H.M. Hill are vacationing now in Huntington, W.Va.
