A nice early Buffalo imprint: the three brothers were in debt to John Love, so they shot him in the head, finished him off with an axe, and buried him in a shallow grave. The brothers were all hanged, and the account of their execution includes a lengthy set of admonitory verses. McDade 972 (with a single coffin; “There is another ed. of 16 p. with three coffins on the tp.”); American Imprints 21219.
