The widow of Custer is worried about what may be said at an up coming hearing on Major Reno's actions at the Battle of the Little Big Horn. A civilian scout Chris Hendon for Reno has contacted her to meet him at Dodge City to pay him for not saying anything that might hurt her husband. Col. Benteen tells her to burn the letter. Two enlisted men Turner and Mills use their leave to go to Dodge City to confront Hendon. Benteen wires Earp to arrest the two men who he catches threatening Hendon. Earp tries to convince Mrs. Custer to let him help her but she is more afraid of rumors and pays off Hendon. Earp stops Hendon and tells Mrs. Custer he would like her to speak with an Indian friend of his who can quiet her fears. Written by Anonymous
