Description They all started out in different directions not knowing that some of them was recognized. Cassidy decided to ride through the Pryor Gap and take the train for Laurel, Montana. Cassidy went to Seattle from Laurel by Northern Pacific train. He bought new clothes in Laurel; different styled hat -- a fedora. From Seattle he went as a crewman on the Eleanor. He decided on the Straights of Juan de Fuca and was in open sea. He soon became a real seaman. Little did his mates realize who they had made friends with. The Eleanor finally made harbor at San Pedro [California] after a hard but pleasant trip for Cassidy. He was glad for the new ideas and [that he] had gotten away from cowpunching lingo and even his walk was different. And, if he found himself in a tight pinch he could use this experience to a good advantage. After the ship had been put in shape some of the crew went ashore and Cassidy was with them. They visited the different saloons and dance halls and at 11 o'clock they found themselves in a notorious dive know as Bentley's. Cassidy still keep- ing his style of never getting too intoxicated,, started for the ship and came in contact with a couple of strong-arm men. They claimed they had just come from a voyage from the Orient but Butch knew better as he had seen one of them in Seattle. Cassidy hated a sneak thief or a strong-arm man. So he sidled right [up] with them and let them know the location of the ship. As Butch and the mates were leaving the two bullies left the place by a side door and a dark alley where the boat was docked. Here, they waited til Cassidy and mates came along. Cassidy was on the outside of the walk by force of habit. One fellow jumped the mate, the other, Butch. Butch knocked the gun from the tough's hand and hit him over the head with his own six-shooter and layed him out. He then turned his attention to the other one who was wrestling the mate and layed him out. He left the two lying in the alley out cold and went to the ship. He then bade his shipmates good-bye and decided to stay ashore for a while. It was with regret that he left the ship and his new friends as his trip down the coast had been a pleasant one and had he not promised to meet the [Wild Bunch] gang on a certain date, he probably would have made a certain voyage. He went to a sailor's hotel trying to decide the safest way. So [he] decided to go to Los Angeles and get a modern room in a modern hotel where there would be less chance of meeting very many people. Before he left San Pedro, he bought clothes, a color that he had never worn before, with hat to match. His clothes that he was wearing he put in a suitcase and purposely lost them in the outskirts of Los Angeles. He purchapsed another one and [thus had] nothing to identify him by. This would give him the appearance of an ordinary traveler. He didn't go about much, realizing that every officer in the U. S. was looking for him as a reward of $8,000 was on him. CHAPTER SEVEN: CASSIDY HELPS WIDOW AND CHILDREN OF A FRIEND It was definitely known that Cassidy was the leader of the Utah bank robbery. Someone remembered that he had one time made the remark that he would some day make a certain man regret the foreclosure of a mortgage on a friend of his. The friend [was] in the location of the place where the bank was robbed [and was] forced to put a complete mortgage on stock and ranch owing to sickness. The ranch and stock [were] worth $8,000. A prominent citizen, Kenney by name, was controlling owner as well as the president of the bank. He was big in church work and when he was not busy working someone out of their hard-earned money he was doing work for God. -13-
