Thomas continues dating Grace, barmaid at the Garrison pub, unaware that she has been planted by Campbell to spy on his activities. At a country fair outside the city Thomas gets into a fight with the Lees, a violent family of travellers, who later send him a bullet with his name on, giving him another adversary to rank alongside Billy Kimber. Campbell sends a message to Thomas via Aunt Polly and they meet on neutral ground at a hotel. Thomas proposes to Campbell that if he leaves him alone he will return the guns. If he is arrested the guns will be sent to the IRA in Ireland. If not the weapons will be given to Campbell to make him appear a hero. Campbell is unhappy but reluctantly agrees. Ada falls pregnant by Freddie Thorne and Thomas sends a message to Freddie demanding he leaves Birmingham. Freddie, however, decides to stay and face him. Written by
