Certainly Part Of Junot's Story Had Been Carried Out - The Horse Thief Came To The Tent And Came With Us To Maginnis, And It Was Not Because He Wanted The Protection Of The Troops.

Faye insists that an attack was never thought of, but as he was responsible for government property, including the animals, he had to make preparation to protect them.

Of course those men wanted only the animals. We passed many places on the divide that were ideal for an ambush - bluffs, huge boulders, and precipices - everything perfect for a successful hold up.

The men came on to the post with us, and were in camp two nights with the soldiers. The second day from the Judith, we stopped for luncheon near a small stream where there were a great many choke-cherry bushes, and "Buckskin Joe"* - that was his name - brought large bunches of the cherries to me. His manner showed refinement, and I saw that his wonderful eyes could be tender as well as steely. Perhaps he had sisters at the old home, and perhaps, too, I was the first woman he had seen in months to remind him of them. I shall always believe that he is from good people some place East, that his "dare-devil" nature got him into some kind of trouble there, and that he came to this wild country to hide from Justice. The very morning after we got here, not long after our breakfast, he appeared at our tent with a fine young deer slung across the back of his horse, which he presented to us.
