Flint is sent to mail letters for the train and buy the Major gum drops. On his return trip a massive rain storm forces him to stop at a home to see if he can take shelter there. Jeb Drummond and his expectant wife Sarah agree to feed him and let him sleep in the barn for which he gives Sarah the Major's gum drops. The next morning when Sarah realizes the baby is coming, Jeb refuses her the services of a midwife. However, Flint goes after the midwife at Sarah's urging. The midwife is the wife of Walt Archer who leads the community in hating Indians due to the death of his father at their hand and the catatonic state it put his mother in. When the baby is born, it reveals that Sarah was raped by an Indian and that Jeb wants Sarah to give the baby to the Indians. Walt makes it worse by saying Sarah should have killed herself. Flint decides to intervene with Archer but what he uncovers accidentally is a life changing event for everyone. Written by Anonymous
