Saturday 15th February 1851. Last evening Charles Shumway and M. D. Hambleton came in from San-Pete[.] They bring news that M. D. Hambleton on last Sunday killed Dr. J. M. Vaughan for similar conduct with Mrs. H. as took place with Dr & Foots wife last summer.
Hamilton will have a trial on the case befor the Supreme Court soon I suppose, when more will be heard about the matter. I spent the day about the City and at home not however doing much business.
