A vain, wealthy widow has a legitimate claim against Favor: the man she entrusted with 750 of her cattle decided to steal the cattle, and he turned them over to Favor to bring to market along with the other 2250 cattle in Favor's care. She initiates a lawsuit to claim her 750 cattle, but spitefully for her own amusement she is also demanding other damages that the local kangaroo court will accede to -- damages like forcing Favor to return the 750 cattle to San Antone. Upon the suggestion of her friendly lawyer, Favor dresses up and romances the woman, hoping to soften her up, with some success. Rather than lose everything (damages issue), Favor agrees to sell her the 2250 cattle (at a fair price) and have her jealous-lovesick-gunfighter-foreman and her brother take the herd to market at Sedalia while Favor keeps her company at her ranch. This results in a deadly confrontation. Written by chipe
