Title GRL_BANDIT_PAGE42
Description "Well, well, Butch, my old friend. I might have known you wouldn't be afraid to trust me. We three are here alone and no one will ever know that we have met so now Butch tell me what I can do for you." "Nothing, my friend. I just wanted to see you once more and explain a few things that I wanted you to know. I knew you were my friend and I was not taking chances in sending for you. After I leave, I expect you to take up my trail but if you will give me a few hours start I know you won't overtake me this time at least." After they had talked for a while, Orson asked him if he wouldn't like to see his old deputy, Jim Baldwin*. "I would give a lot to see Jim if you think it would be alright to let so many know of your seeing me." "Oh, yes, Butch. Jim, you know him, you couldn't pull a secret out of him with a ball team and [he] would love to see you just as well as I was." So he asked Joe to go to the Fremont Bar and hunt Jim up "and bring a bottle of the best liquor with you." In a short while, Joe was back with Jim Baldwin. Baldwin was so very much surprised to see Butch waiting for him. "Well, I'll be damned if it isn't Butch. Where in the hell did you come from? We all thought you were in Mexico." * After having a drink around, Butch explained in full what he had done and what he hadn't done and why he had done what he did. "I didn't want to kill the man who swore out that last warrant for me, but I did want to let him know I wasn't afriad of him. I wanted to hurt him so I went and stole fifty head of his best horses [and] drove them out in the hills and turned them loose for anyone that wanted them. "I didn't want them and I gave him something to swear out a warrant for and I'll always continue to worry him at every opportunity." "Well, Butch, I don't blame you and it would serve that cuss right if he lost every horse he had. I heard you had threatened to kill him because he sat on the jury** that convicted you." "He is a damn liar, Orson. I have never threatened to kill any man yet. If I had I would have made good [on it]. What I did say to Judge Brent before my pardon [was] that I would square accounts with him some day if it was the last thing I ever did. And afterwards, [I] told him I was sorry I had said it and for him to forget it. There is no use shooting a rat like that. The best way to hurt them is through their pocket book. "They will holler louder than if you cut off both legs. I steal their money just to hear them holler. Then I pass it out among those who really need it." "Well, Butch, I am sorry you really feel that way, but I guess you are partly right at that." It was two o'clock before Grimmet and Baldwin left. CHAPTER TWENTY: BUTCH SAVES THE LIFE OF A NEPHEW OF HIS OLD ENEMY After Jim and Orson left, Butch prepared to leave also. Handing his friend, Joe, a roll of bills, he was in his saddle and on his way back to Sweetwater. His horse being fresh, he was back to his friend O'Neil's ranch at break of day. [He] *The Fremont Clipper, Lander newspaper, reported activities of Deputy Jim Baldwin. **otto Franc, the Big Horn Basin rancher, was behind the warrants against Butch. But Franc did not serve on the jury which convicted Cassidy. However, men in his pay or under his influence probably did. -42-
