I find an abandoned house with a porch and stop to rest for a few days.  No sooner am I sitting on it than Jeb walks up from the road.

Say you found that ole gal at the turnaround?  Jeb says.

He always talks like he has a mouthful of hot oatmeal.

What gal?  I say.

That un was left up yander.  Had on a nightgown.

I saw her, I say anxiously.  Tried to help her but she wouldn’t have any help and I left her there.

She’s went to the sheriff, Jeb says.

She has?

They’s done arrested Holmes.

That’s his problem.  I had nothing to do with it.

She says you did.

Then she’s a lying tub of yellow shit.

I just thought I’d tell ye, he says, moving off.
