Letter From The Grave
IN BRIEF: Jack Bannock's letter from Gold Run, Montana Territory, asking for Hopalong's help is dated 10 October 1873 -- 15 years ago! Hoppy, who knew Bannock while growing up in Dodge City, is still curious enough to look into what happened to his old friend. (Ranch hand Johnny is mentioned in passing.) In Montana, Postmaster Riley says he recovered a sack of mail hidden by the old Creed Gang in the wall of a house. The Creeds had quite a tight hold on the area until cleaned up by vigilantes, the postmaster says. He urges Hoppy to talk to old Charlie Borden, who works for Hutchinson. Meanwhile, a young woman with a letter is asking about Bannock, too. She's his niece, Sarah Newcomb. Her letter describes a stash of gold dust. Lawyer Matt Gillis and his partner Jeff Larkin claim to know nothing. Gillis, though, was one of the old Creeds. Borden tells Hoppy the Creeds were blamed for alot of killings years ago. Hutchinson tells Hoppy he made his fortune not from mining but from selling "Little Wonder" pushbutton knives. He says he suspects Gillis of being behind Bannock's death -- even though no body was ever found. Hoppy meets Sarah Newcomb. Her letter offers a clue that the key is in the "green gallows." Sheriff Riley describes an old hanging tree. Gillis and Larkin, who have stolen the letter from Miss Newcomb, have already dug there. Hoppy looks up in the tree, however, and sees an old pistol nailed there. He sights along it and sees a boulder -- and someone digging. It turns out to be Hutchinson -- who was Bannock's partner and killed Bannock for the gold. He's now digging up the body to recover a prototype knife, which could give away his guilt. (Swanton)
