The man that'd stay 'round here, scratchin' these clay knobs, when there's no law agin him goin' to Injianny or Illinoy, hain't gumption enough to be anything but a rebel. That's my private opinion publicly expressed."Si sprang as if he had received a galvanic shock, cramming the letter into his pocket. Of course, there wasn't any fight.
