Description Brennen was a surly chap and was very quarrelsome when drinking. He was the nephew of a large cow rancher in that country, was educated in college and was quite an athlete. He was a bully and most men did not like him. He had taken a dislike to Butch Cassidy and had started a quarrel with Butch. It would end up a fight, with Pete drawing a gun on Butch. Butch was quicker on the draw and [he] ordered Pete to lay the gun down and he did likewise. They ended the fight bare-handed -- and Butch won out. They shook hands afterwards and Butch bought drinks for the bunch. Butch and some of the boys stayed in Green River and enjoyed the sale of the shipment of cattle. As it got close to winter, the boys scattered out for winter quarters. Butch had some friends along the Sweetwater River and near Split Rock; also in Lander. A friend from Elk Basin, Al Hinton*, was somewhat of Butch1s type of a fellow and he had known Cassidy by the name of Parker. So Butch had to explain why he had changed the name by saying he wanted to lose himself by going into a new country. Butch and Hinton went to Lander together by way of the South Pass. CHAPTER TWO: LANDER Lander was a happy, friendly little town, and it was very beautiful. Every- one knew everyone around the country. There wasn't very many killings in Lander or very many marriages as there were not many women and if either happened the Dr. Bishop Talbot** of the Episcopal Church was welcomed. There were plenty of hard men in Lander but very few bad ones. There was no public dance hall in Lander. Dances were all private and if any trouble arose, the women were invited out and the fight went to the finish. It was stock-raising and grain farm country and Lander was the center location. Ft. Washakie was 15 miles from Lander and the soldiers spent most of their money there. Lander was the county seat of Fremont County and its sheriffs took second place to none in that state. Court was held once a year and then it was only one or two civil cases which often took a few days in Lander. Cassidy and Hinton decided to winter there. Butch soon became very popular there with those he met, especially the children. He always had a smile and a kind word for them. He always bought candy for them and he always had a lot of them around. He was always a gentleman. He never attended dances or associated with women or seldom attended parties. He felt very much out of place at dances but he was a lover of music. He worked around Wyoming a lot. CHAPTER THREE: TOM O'DAY Butch and Hinton started to Powder River from Lander. They stayed the first night at a substation with John Burnett. They then started down the Wind River Quien Sabe Ranch. Tom Osborne owned the ranch. Tom was a friend of the two boys.*** *A1 Hainer, about whom little is known, was Butch1s companion at this time. **Bishop Ethelbert Talbot who became bishop of Wyoming and Idaho Episcopal Church in 1887 with headquarters in Laramie. ***That Tom Osborne was Butch1s friend was confirmed by research.
