The Pioneer edition featuring Bullock's letter is published, raising concerns about Hearst's response. Erstwhile lawman Wyatt Earp and his brother Morgan ride into town, ostensibly having defended an incoming stagecoach against sabotage. Some town folks question their supposed heroics. Langrishe grants Chesterton a curtain call, and offers to perform long-term therapy on Hearst's chronic aching back. Fields' departure is delayed by an injury at the livery to Steve the Drunk.
Did You Know?
When Langrishe is sitting in the theater with the dying Chesterton, their dialogue is taken from King Lear, Act 4, Scenes 1 and 6. It is a conversation between Gloucester, who has been blinded, and his son Edgar, who leads his father to the edge of a tall cliff. Langrishe and Chesterton take a few liberties with the text. They skip some lines, and swap roles partway through. See more
