Right, Christopher. And thanks for reviving this -- I guess I didn't notice it the first time through.

Until Skinny proved that the whores were his legal property and had a monetary value, Lil Bill didn't feel any crime had been committed - the whores had no value, less value than a horse, as Strawberry Alice would mention later.  He'd rather just let the young cowboys move on without punishment and sweep it under the rug. Skinny was the victim, as the women weren't people with rights. Skinny had rights, and Lil Bill was asked to punish the loss of value Delilah would bring to Skinny as her property. I would imagine this is a realistic view of how women prostitutes would be valued back in that era.

was he doing it for the 500 $ reward that was mentioned by the kid?

Munny had tried to provide for his children as an honest farmer, but he was failing at that.  His pig farm was doing poorly -- the pigs were coming down with "the fever" and dying off.  It wasn't an easy decision for him to make, and he hated having to do it, but he wanted to provide for his family. So of course it was for the $500.

Yes, it's very nice.  One of these visits I think I'll place a chair in the yard, have some coffee, do some reading and enjoy the sounds of nature.

Taken in Maine yesterday and today.   Dealing with my dad's cabin.   Back home now, in New Hampshire.

I think you answered your second question. And I don't agree with your response to your first question. How is it out of Little Bill's character to not want to punish the cowboys?

(I realize this thread is three months old and it's the only post from this poster :D)

My condolences, Gant! It's hard to lose your mother. I still miss mine dearly, even after so many years.

R.I.P Roger Moore..



As a kid going to the cinema in the 70's Roger was always my James Bond.. Also loved him in The Saint and The Persuaders..

Sadly my dear Mum passed away a day earlier.. I like to think they're both up there sharing a joke and a vodka martini..
..tho she's probably telling him she prefered Connery..  ;) xx
