I'll surely see

her before I leave.

There's the

Peensie Bell whistling now.

Ooh, look at the crowd.

Oh, look.

Okay. I guess it is

important to have everything ready.

I have everything ready.

Well, Miss Cameron, we be

landin' in a few minutes.

Got all your

outfit together?

Most everything's ready,

Captain Hollister.

Listen, why don't you give up

this plan and turn back?

Why, there's no place

to turn back to.

Why, there isn't a home in all the South

that wouldn't welcome the daughter

of Colonel Cameron.

True. But we can hardly

become perpetual visitors.

It's a tough

proposition, girl,

this pioneer life in

a savage wilderness.

We realize that,

Captain Hollister,

but we must keep

the family together.

Honey Girl wants to stay with

her sister Ruth, doesn't she?

Yes, I do.

And our brother Dave's

almost a man grown.

Ruth is right, Captain. The Cameron

tribe must stick together.

Say, you're

just the fella I want to see.

I want to play some more

of that shell game.

Have you got

any more money?

Oh, sure I got some money.

Where'd you get that?

From my mother-in-law.

She lend it to me,

but she don't know it.

Here, I'll meet you below deck.

Get along.

Don't forget.

I wait there for you.

Are you still determined

to be a sturdy pioneer?

Quite determined,

Mr. Thorpe.

I've told you about

my plantation in Louisiana.

It must be wonderful.

Miss Cameron, those lands

and servants are yours,

if you'll take me with them.

Why, I do thank you. But as I've

said before, it's quite impossible.

Good-bye, Mr. Thorpe.

Now, if I win,

I'm going to keep it.

But if I lose, I give

my mother-in-law half.

Good afternoon, gentlemen.

Here we are again.

Hello, Thorpe.

Well, Gussie, you want to see the

elusive little ball under the shells.
