Etta Jackson and artist Hurley Abbott have fallen in love and wish to marry. However, Etta's southern family believe all artists are womanizers and evil men. They decide to run Hurley out of town so Hurley turns to Earp. Hurley was given a note by Ned Buntline to ask Earp for help if needed. He asks Earp to teach him how to fight but Earp refuses although he likes Hurley. He advises the couple to elope and go west before the family can catch them. Doc Holliday has returned to Dodge City alone and takes an interest in Hurley's paintings believing the young man has a future. He doesn't think it is feasible to teach Hurley to fight as he would likely be hurt but he is willing to help back down the Jackson family. Earp with Doc behind him stop the three Jacksons but the Jacksons vow to return with more men. Doc is forced to leave leaving Earp to handle what is now the Jackson "mob" outside his jail and a couple wanting to marry in his jail. Written by Anonymous
