San Francisco History

Duel



DUEL.óWe learn that an "affair of honor" came off yesterday, near the Yerba Buena Cemetery, between two citizens whose names we understand to be Tillotson and Kenney. The weapons used were pistols, and at the first fire T. received his adversary's ball in the leg just above the knee. We are unable to give the particulars of the affray.
