Little Tree, Texas
April 5, 1889
While waiting for the train from Abilene to arrive, the
Young Bucks take their sisters and their new friends to
the Little Tree Hotel.
As they sip their refreshing sodas, talk among friends
comes easy and as always with the Young Bucks,
the subject of horses is brought up.
When telling about their trip to Fort Worth
and the horse races, their conversation is
overheard by others in the dining hall.
A challenge is made-A challenge is countered.
Late night at the Little Tree Hotel has doors
opening and closing up and down the hallways.
Confessions are made in one room while concessions are made in another.
