Setting: New York City at 10 pm in 1905 Tone: mysterious Characters: Patrolman Jimmy Wells, Silky Bob, Undercover policeman
Patrolman Jimmy Wells must decide whether or not to arrest his friend or to let him go.
This note is from Patrolman Wells.
Silky Bob talks to a cop about waiting for a friend to meet him after 20 years. He assures the policeman that his friend will show up, and that he'll wait 30 minutes past the arrival time for him.
A man, believed by Bob to be Jimmy, greets him and take a walk. They then stop under a street light where both of them can see each other's faces clearly. Bob realizes that the man isn't Jimmy and the undercover policeman tells Bob that he's been under arrest for 10 minutes.
The undercover policeman gives Bob a note, explaining to him that it is from Patrolman Wells.
Bob reads the note from Jimmy which says that he recognized him as the "wanted" man from Chicago, so he sent someone else to arrest him because he couldn't do it himself.
