Allan Pinkerton and Benjamin Franklin to F. B. Gowen, 1875-10-20
Communication encloses the report of operative Linden, who is assigned to the charge of the special guard in the coal regions of Pennsylvania. The report covers the dates 1875-07-24 to 1875-10-20. On 20 October, the operative reports that he has contacted prominent citizens in the coal regions concerning the recent assassinations but has found both the citizens and the authorities to be apathetic and, consequently, 'no definite steps have been taken to make examples of the well known assassins.'
