"Howdy, parts! Today Marshal Carson learns something that I had to learn myself once. He found out that a person isn't bad just because he looks different or speaks another language. And I reckon he knows that it's a big wonderful universe, with lots of room in it for all kind of peoples and animals."


"Glad you feel that way, Marshal. I wouldn't want you to feel bad just cause you... don't look like me."

Story Notes[]

  • Near the end, when Marshal Carson is about to depart, in the long establishing shot he is wearing the white cowboy hat that he gave away earlier in the story. When it cuts to a close up, the hat is gone.
