Well, now, this gun isn't just

worth the gold and silver on it.

It's what they call the Victory Gun, Jess.

It fired the last shot against Maximilian.

AII Mexico was freed.

It's a shrine, Jess.

Highest bidder.

You see what you gave me up for?

Maybe your share of over $100,000.

How far are the Federales behind you?

Not me, Jess. You.

They're after you.

I just wanted to make sure you'd be

in the neighborhood.

Don't you want to know why

they're after you?

You remember Norm, Jess?

He got shot in the neck while

we was gettin' away.

Norm never made it.

We buried him out there somewhere.

I let it get out that that wasn't Norm at all.


Look at this, Jess.

Look at the posters they got out

on both sides of the border.

"Wanted. $10,000 reward. Jess Wade. "

"American. 6'2". Dark hair.

Fair complexion. "

That fits, doesn't it, old friend?

"The Mexican government is prepared

to pay 10,000 American dollars

"for the apprehension of Jess Wade,

"who was the only identifiable member

of the fouI perpetrators

"who stole the Victory Gun

from the Chapultepec Palace,

"July 8, last. "

Now listen to this. This is the best part.

"Wade sustained a neck wound

"as a result of the gunfire

from the guards on duty.

"This man can be identified

by the severe wound on his neck. "

So, that's it.

All right, boys.

A severe wound across his neck.

You see who they're lookin' for, Jess? You.

All right, let him up.

That's one man who's not gonna make

it to his feet, let alone go anywhere.

- All right, bring his saddle.


How do you suppose he did that?

Who says he could keep on

managing that?

One thing, Jess, you haven't lost

any of your sand.

All right, that's enough.

Make him comfortable.

Is that better, Jess?

All right, let's get ready to move out.
