The cheap J. Frank Dalton
My point was that anything worth seeing is worth paying for.
The Houk that I knew was not pull a cheap prank like that.
I can almost guarantee you that it was Dalton's idea to charge the quarter.
Now he was a known cheap skate.
Probably figured it was easy tobacco change.
Probably stashed it away in some depository for the second civil war he was planning.
Houk mentioned once that they had over $50,000 with them in a brief case and Dalton tried to squeeze out of paying a food tab because the restaurant announced that the real Jesse James was in the restaurant.
I don't think that there was any intent to deceit.
This man believed who he was and wanted to prove it.
But unfortunately he waited to long and "death waits for no man".
