On a cold rainy night Ben Jesse drives his pregnant and critically ill mother into Laramie in the back of a wagon. He pulls into the livery stable. Troop and Johnny find her while on rounds as Ben returns with the doctor. Ben refuses to move her to a more comfortable place as he has only one dollar that is to pay the doctor.
