boss got drunk and failed to send me the help promised, so he volunteered to

While on our way back to Texas, and not far south of Caldwell, Kansas, Frank
Jureczki and I, while driving our loose horses, saw two men running a buffalo
cow, and I roped her for them. They hauled her home in a wagon, and said they
were going to raise buffalo.
