Wishbone makes a short detour from the drive to meet an old friend, who has a small ranch with 500 head of cattle and 3 drovers. They planned to merge the cattle with Favor's larger cattle drive, but the friend soon dies of natural causes, and the three drovers turn bad and decide to steal the 500 cattle. However, they need the ownership papers which Wishbone has secreted. Wishbone refuses to hand over the papers so two of them (not including Jerry, who has moral doubts) start torturing Wishbone, who resists. To keep Favor and his drovers away, the knaves have Wishbone write a letter explaining his extended absence, which one of them delivers to Favor's camp. However, Wishbone wisely uncharacteristically began the letter "Dear Gil," a tip-off to Rowdy who comes to the rescue. Written by chipe
