At Laramie the sheriff tries to persuade Caulder to leave town but he has to wait for the 4:00 pm stage for his letter. Jess has heard Caulder is in Laramie. Since he knew Caulder, he thought he might be the target so he decides to meet Caulder head on in Laramie. When Caulder receives his letter, he tells Jess he is glad he isn't the target so Jess leaves. At the ranch Slim suggests Jess take a trip which he does. On the way out of town Caulder asks how to reach the Sherman Ranch. His target is someone at Sherman Ranch but when Slim and Andy Sherman save Caulder's life he eventually ends up rethinking his contract.

Assignment by Post Office
13 April 2017 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Rod Cameron guest stars in this Laramie story, the first of six episodes he appeared in. In this one Cameron plays a fast gun and a contract killer who gets assignments via General Delivery at the US Post Office. He's in Laramie for a letter explaining who his next assignment will be.

John Smith has good reason to suspect that Robert Fuller is the target given Jess Harper's outlaw past and some history with Cameron. So he's sent on a convenient cattle buying trip to Cheyenne. But Cameron shows up and gets into an animal trap. He gets nursed back to health and more happens on the Sherman ranch to get Cameron reassess the life he leads.

You'll have to watch the episode to see why Cameron changes his mind and who his target is and why. But it will be worth it I assure you.
