Finally finished the "Manos Arriba!" set piece this morning:
Three Mexican bandidos are holding up the Anton Chico stage near Glorieta Pass. As I worked on this scene I realized the preacher—from Maine, by the way—asked to ride on the box with the driver because the two strangers in the coach were getting "randy." And when the stage climbs the final hill, just prior to the robbery, the vixen asks her rider his name, and he replies, "Antrim." She calls him Antrim from then on, as if it's his first name. Young William is amused by this.
"Some of us are timid. We think we have something to lose so we don't try for the next hill."
