In the Bull's Head Painter shares a bottle with Molly. He has her address an envelope to Miss Betsy Burgess Pretty Prairie Kansas. Painter shoots Matt twice in the leg. Matt shoots Painter off his horse. Then he is run over by a wagon. He dies in Doc's office. Doc finds the envelope. Cleed tells Lucas isn't about your time. Lucas says he'll kill Matt tomorrow. Matt rides out and gives Betsy the money. Painter sent it so Betsy could have her leg fixed. Matt asks Molly about Painter. While making rounds Cleed calls out "why can't you die". He draws on Matt and is killed. Cleed tells Matt to find Old Lucas and tell him I was right. I guess a lot of men want me dead, one of them is named Lucas.
