used to the light they handed me your message.

You still had eyes.

Did you read it?

It's a good rifle.

You didn't bring me 300 miles

to talk about your rifle.

I've got a herd for you to move.

A herd? I'm John Cord, remember?

I remember.

Nobody would ask John Cord

to move a herd now.

Nobody but John Cord could move

a herd this size - 5,000 head.

It doesn't look

like you're desperate...

...or that moving 5,000 head

of cattle is life or death.

Rooms don't change, bank accounts do

But a man with 5,000 head...

They're not all mine. Almost

everybody in Hamilton owns a share.

That herd could make

a dying town live again.

That makes my heart bleed!

I've hated you a long time, too.

But can't we let it be?

Because no-one else would move

a herd for you at this time of year?

If you get them to Fort Clemson

you'll be a top trail boss again.

I'll pay you $15,000 in advance.

$15,000? Your conscience

bothers you that much?

I need you that much.

What's the matter with Garth?

Hes dealt from the bottom

since this happened.

By the time I realised, he had

half my cattle and his own ranch.

He'd like the town

renamed "Garthville".

Well, there's always

little brother Douglas.

He's a green kid.

He'd bring 100 head to Fort

Clemson, if he got there at all.

No, you're the man, if you'll do it.

The army needs beef for the troops

and the Indian reservations.

They're paying good -

I'll pay you good.

I'd be in a position to ruin you

without half trying.

Yes, you would.

Well, I won't do that to you, Ralph.

So Ill take my torn shirt

and my reputation...

Forget the past, Cord!

Nobody else has forgotten it!

- Nobody helped them forget it.

You've got to ride trail for me.

Youve got Janice. The scores even.

You can make it. You try.

Mr Cord? Where do you think
