Title GRL_BANDIT_PAGE25
Description [The] message [was] sent. She met Butch. He called a cab [and] took her to her cousin's place. She got her clothes and trunks. They drove to the station [and he] got her ticket, checked her trunks for Seattle [and] went to his room at the hotel to wait for the time that the train should leave. He then called another cab [and] gave her $500 to tide her over until she could get work. "I don't know who you are but I think this is the kindest act I have ever known a man to do. And I should bless you as I did my own mother. I will know you anywhere I should see you and I will never forget you and bless you to my dying day." They bade each other farewell and she was on the train bound for Seattle. He told her that he knew she landed in that joint by some kind of a trap. He could tell by looking at her and could tell her by her actions [he told her], that she was not hard-boiled like the others and [he] felt that she would be the kind who would appreciate a break for the good in life. "So it makes me very happy to be able to do this for you. You are young, about 13, I think, and I know kind-hearted. And I hope you get work and meet up with someone who will make you happy." "You have not told me yet who I am so indebted to for all this kindness and I can't understand why you, a total stranger, should take such an interest in me." "Never mind who I am. My only reason for helping you is that I believe in you and want to help you undo a foolish start. The Almighty has endowed you with good looks and I know a good disposition." Her name was never mentioned due [to] his respect for good people. "And if this little act of mine but proves to be the means of helping you back to the place you are entitled to in life, I am only too happy to have been able and the one to perform it." "I am going to Seattle and try to make myself the woman you have pictured me to be and I hope some day to prove to you the gratitude I feel for this wonderful kindness you have shown me. And I promise now by the love of my dear mother that you will never have cause to regreat this kindness to me." Butch purchased magazines and sweets for her and saw her comfortable in her compartment and bade her good-bye and good luck. Feeling he had accomplished one good deed in Chicago, he returned to his hotel room for the night to think of the dear sweet face in far off Wyoming, and wondered if she was thinking of him also. CHAPTER FOURTEEN: AN UNEXPECTED MEETING Two days after Butch had started his new friend, the girl of the beer garden, on her way to Seattle, he met an old acquaintance of his by the federal building on Clark Street'1', Buck Williams from Wyoming. He [Buck] had come to Chicago with a carload of stock. [He] told Butch of some of the things that had happened. [He] also told him that he -- Butch -- and Bill Hays were reported to have been killed down in Elk Basin. As soon as the news reached Rock Springs, Preston"'-, "your old friend the lawyer went down to claim your body. As soon as he saw the body he knew it was not you and was he happy. "'"The federal building was at the southwest corner of Clark and West Adams streets. -"''"Douglas A. Preston, Cassidy's attorney on several occasions. -25-
