Scope and content

Item consists of a photograph of a small house with a family standing in the doorway. Cameron's caption on the verso reads: "Shack at Lesser Slave Lake, where the American, [Charles] King, was arrested by the Mounted Police, and subsequently convicted of the murder of his companion, Hayward, an Englishman. The case took 11 months to work up and cost the Canadian government $30,000 - 40 Indian witnesses were brought 250 miles to testify. Murderer was finally hanged."

The photograph is accompanied by a textual document (also assigned HP024554), which expands on what was written in the caption.
