Description "God knows, Mr. Parker, I need the money all right. I can make scarcely- enough to keep my babies from going hungry and I don't know what I'll do when winter comes and food and fuel to buy, to say nothing of house rent. "I know your arguments are sound. Kenney has always been a tyrant but it hardly seems right to rob him as you did." "That's the way you've been taught to see things. I suppose if you and your children had been turned out to freeze it would have been all right 'cause the law said so. That's where the law and I disagree. "There is one right. That is charity toward your fellow man when he needs your help. I want you to take this money and use it as you think best. Keep it out of sight and no one will ever guess you have it and forget where it came from. Try and make it do a little more cheerful work than Kenney would have done had I not pursuaded him to turn it over to me." Cassidy's argument finally won and she accepted the money. And as it was settled and he had turned the money over to her with her promise to use it, he bade her good-bye and good luck and was off never to see her again. He felt he had done a good deed and was certain the sun would shine much brighter on the little family next winter. This trip was made before the first train holdup at Wilcox while Cassidy was learning the various train movements, where it stopped for water and how many men were usually employed in the main and express cars; also the regular routine along the line which was necessary to know. CHAPTER EIGHT: CASSIDY VISITS LOS ANGELES Los Angeles was a revelation to Cassidy in many ways. Up to this time, it was the largest city he had visited. For the first few days, he spent the greawtest part of the time in his room and contented himself with reading. Upon his arrival he bought a good supply of magazines and every morning he bought the morning paper. It was with much amusement he read of two bank robberies he had committed while on his way from Seattle to San Pedro aboard the Eleanor E. It seemed every crime committed was laid to him and his Wild Bunch, as they were called, regardless of where it was done. One robbery he was accused of was in Central Colorado and another in Montana and the most amusing part was they were committed only two days apart. Where the rest of the gang was he, of course, did not know. He was reasonably sure, however, they, like himself, were sticking pretty close to some comparatively safe hideout until they were ready to start for the rendezvous at Albuquerque which would not be for nearly a month. One thing [was] plain: The gang would have little time free form pursuit with every crime committed being 'laid at their door. The hotel where Cassidy stopped was more of a rooming house than a hotel. The office was on the second floor and the space called a lobby was nothing more than a large hall with a couch and a few chairs. Very few guests used the lobby to sit and read was the lighting was bad and as the office was not exactly in the lobby he saw few of the guests. The place was ideal for his purpose and for a short stroll in the morning away from the center of town and when he returned, the maid whould have his room made up and in that way no one knew when he was in or out and those he did meet paid no attention to him whatever. -15-
