The only two who know the story are massacred by Indians
20 February 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This story has the freshness of an actual record; yet the only two who know the story are massacred by Indians. It is, however, convincing as a supposititious explanation when perhaps the bodies of the two friends were found with clasped hands and the letters of Jack's wife, dated week by week, and only one opened, beside them. Jack seems foolish; he keeps his marriage a secret for fear of hurting Ned's feelings, but none can deny that there are fools in the world. The two hold the cabin for a while against a dozen Indians. Jack is the first to be shot, and then Ned brings him the letters which he had been holding back from jealousy. When Ned, too, is wounded, Jack forgives him and they die together. - The Moving Picture World, July 1, 1911
