The time had finally arrived it was do or die time in the Wild West. On account of being insulted on more than one occasion by a drunken soldier, who even when sober still had the same account on his same old tongue I must recall to you in my sole defence.
It was three o ` clock in the afternoon and I am awaiting the time to come when I can put several bullets in my insulters body. He was having his last drink in the saloon and I think he knew as well as I that it would be his last moonshine. I was at least giving him a few minutes to enjoy his last drink and this gave me the opportunity to conserve myself for the dual of death.
My two guns on each holster were packed with bullets and I even had a gun strapped inside my waistcoat, I also kept a good blade in case I needed it. I had checked my guns over and over and I was now getting nervous and was pacing up and down all over the place.
A small crowd of people were now gathering around and within the next few minutes it would be quite a big crowd. Hangings were usually a good crowd puller but duals were far more exiting as any of the two people or both people could die. I asked one of the crowd members to go to the saloon to see if he was ready to dual as I was now getting impatient.
After a few minutes the crowd member arrived back with my insulter, but on this occasion he said nothing and just started checking his guns and consoling himself. I gave him a minute then we went into the middle of the floor back to back. We walked back from each other with our backs to each other counting to ten. On the count of ten we drew our weapons and I was caught with a bullet in my right arm and my left leg. My insulter was caught with a bullet in his stomach and his forehead and he was on the floor dead.
It was over, the crowd were stood still with their mouths wide open for a few minutes and then started to disperse. The Doctor went to check my insulter was dead and got some men to remove the body and take it to the mortuary. I made my way home and hoped this would be the last dual I would ever be involved in and thanked the Lord above for keeping me alive.
