The Deposit


Excellent, these fellas were just leaving, our business has been completed. Come on in and we’ll set you up.”

Binkley, Wilson, Cairns and Sledge exchanged glances before mounting up and riding away, “Now, what are we gonna tell Missus Simpson?”

We might try the truth, Mr. Sledge,” Binkley said as he spurred his horse to a trot.

Well, Mrs. Miller, it’s now official, meet your new step-sons!” Judge Fauntleroy beamed—but his beam was nothing compared to that of the two “young men.”

Season VI, Chapter 1, Episode 19:

Howard & Timothy Miller now had a last name, and an actual mother. Only Howard had any memories of their birth mother, but for so many years he’d been called only by his first name at the series of rather brutal orphanages he’d cycled through, he didn’t remember his surname.

You didn’t ask him, did you.”

Bart Nathaniel and Adelbert Simpson went inside the bank and Nathaniel looked around a bit; he took in the sturdy thick log walls, the barred access to the windowless vault room and the windowless sidewalls of the building—and smiled. If not robbery and burglary proof, it was close, “I’d like to open an account, Mr. Simpson and this appears to be a bank that can handle it.”
