Jim Hardie makes a trip to Rock point but not on company business for a change. His close friend Josh Wilkins, a Wells Fargo agent, has asked Jim to stop by. When Jim enters the office, he is greeted by the clerk Ann Rawlins. Jim and Josh move to Josh's private office to talk. Josh asks Jim if he recognizes the name Rawlins which Jim does not. When Josh mentions Wilt Rawlins, Jim recognizes the name. Josh informs him that Wilt escaped jail a couple of weeks ago and he is Ann's husband. They have a boy Jody. Josh trusts Ann but feels he should inform Wells Fargo. Jim's initial response is that Josh should fire Ann but Josh refuses to.

The office handles gold shipments each week of around $40,000 so Jim is worried.Written by
