Description: A Valuable Sister.

Date: December 20 1860

Newspaper published in: Boston, MA

Bill THREAD, a noted mail robber in the West, was arrested at his sister's house at Olney, Ill., a few nights since, but not without a desperate fight, in which his Amazonian sister had single handed and alone nearly beaten off the three officers. THREAD had been handcuffed in his sleep and before the house was alarmed, or the seizure would not have been effected.
