A letter stuck in a glove

    A US Marshall turned a letter over to the BOI Agent.  The letter was found by an unnamed man who stated he found the letter stuck in a glove in the middle of the street at West Temple & 1st North Street.

    “I am in the hands of German Spie.  God let me write this before I forget.  They are going to send me west and bury me in salt so I will keep they said.  I met them at the Army Club.  Thought I was their spie.  They shot me when I wouldn’t tell them, they shoot me.  I wish it had been a bullet so it would have finished me then.  O God, how I hurt.”

    Read the rest of this letter and decided for yourself if Riley Wood was telling the truth.
