Storyboard Text

  • Snake-Eye is in the tree waiting for Dorset to come put money in the box.
  • I had a scheme for collecting that ransom without danger of being caught.
  • The tree under which answers was to be left-and the money later on- was close to the road fence with big, bare fields on all sides.
  • Exactly on time, a half-grown boy rides up the road on a bicycle, locates the pasteboard box at the foot of the fence post, slips a folded piece of paper into it.
  • Snake-Eye sees a half-grown boy put a piece of paper in the box.
  • I slid down the tree, got the note, slipped along the fence till I struck the woods, and was at the cave in another half an hour.
  • Snake-Eye grabs the not and goes back to the cave where Bill is.
  • Just at the moment when I should have been abstracting the fifteen hundred dollars from the box under the tree, Bill was counting out two hundred and fifty dollars into Dorset's hand.
  • I opended the note, got near the lantern, and read it to Bill. Two Desperate Men. Gentlemen: I received your letter today by post, in regard to the ransom you ask for the return of my son. You bring Johnny home and pay me two hundred and fifty dollars in cash, and I agree to take him off your hands. You have better come at night, for the neighbors believe he is lost.
  • Snake-Eye reads the letter out-loud to him and Bill.
  • We took him home that night. We got him to go by telling him that his father had bought a silver-mounted rifle and a pair of moccasins for him, and we were going to hunt bears the next day.
  • Snake-Eye and Bill came to the conclusion to pay Dorset two hundred and fifty dollars to take red chief back.
  • When the kid found out we were going to leave him at home he started up a howl like a calliope amd fastened himself as tight as a leech to Bill's leg. His father peeled him away gradually. And as dark as it was he was a good mile and a half out of summit before I could catch up with him.
  • They payed the money to Dorset and Bill ended up running like the wind away from red chief.
