HENRY SEED:

Silence in the face of

HENRY SEED:

Good afternoon Sheriff.

My name is Henry Seed.

Nice to meet ya.

SHERIFF CHAPMAN:

Nice to meet you.

Have a seat.

HENRY SEED:

Thank you.

SHERIFF CHAPMAN:

Now,what can I help you with?

HENRY SEED:

Well Aahh..I've got

a question to ask...

and a favor to ask

of you as well.

SHERIFF CHAPMAN:

I'll do my best to

answer your questions.

HENRY SEED:

Do you know Jonathan Brown?

SHERIFF CHAPMAN:

Jonathan Brown...

I've known him for going on now

about 20 years...

he's the proprietor of our

blacksmith.

HENRY SEED:

Is he the same Jonathan

Brown that was awarded the

Congressional Medal of Honor

at the Massacre

of Wounded Knee?

SHERIFF CHAPMAN:

I believe he was

awarded that medal for

the Battle of Wounded Knee.

If you wish to talk to

Jonathan he's probably having

dinner..he lives about

two miles south of town.

HENRY SEED:

No, no that's all I need to

know...I appreciate your

time sheriff...thank you.

SHERIFF CHAPMAN:

Uh..What about your favor?

HENRY SEED:

Would you be able to

console Mrs. Jonathan Brown..?

SHERIFF CHAPMAN:

Why...has something

happened to Jonathan?

HENRY SEED:

Not yet...

SHERIFF CHAPMAN:

Are you planning on

harming Jonathon?

HENRY SEED:

No no no...but I

have a strong suspicion

that in exactly ...

seven minutes

he will be putting his gun to

his head and taking his own

life.

SHERIFF CHAPMAN:

Stay right there!

Don't move!

JONATHAN BROWN:

Charlie just....

HENRY SEED:

Hello Jonathon...

how was your dinner?

JONATHAN BROWN:

It was good my

wife's a helluva cook.

Do I know you?

HENRY SEED:

No... no you don't but

my name is Henry Henry Seed.

JONATHAN BROWN:

Alright Mr. Seed what

can I do for ya?

HENRY SEED:

Actually this gentleman

was here first.

JONATHAN BROWN:

Hmm mm but you're

here now....what do you need?

HENRY SEED:

I don't need anything

but I would very much

enjoy seeing your old pistol.

JONATHAN BROWN :

Oh!...yes, this is my old

sidearm from my cavalry days...

it's a standard issue Colt 45..

HENRY SEED:

I bet you this has seen

a lot of action.

JONATHAN BROWN:

A helluva lot actually, I rode

with Col. John Forsyth in the

7th.....

Whoa! I don't have loaded

weapons in the shop.

HENRY SEED:

I'm sorry...but why don't

you put that bullet to good

use this time.

JONATHAN BROWN:

You need to leave now.

HENRY SEED:

I'll go... I will go but,

you need to leave first.

Put the gun to your head

and you leave..........

HENRY SEED:

Sir your timing is impeccable...

We are in need

of a credible witness.

GUNSHOT IS HEARD

LITTLE THUNDER:

(in Lakota)

PASTOR CALMES DOYLE (OS):

I walked in and saw Jonathon

with his gun to his head. I

immediately tried to grab

it from him but I was too late.

SHERIFF CHAPMAN:

Did he say anything?

Was he in anguish?

PASTOR DOYLE:

Actually he looked like hell.

He was shaken up a bit and

muttered something right

before he pulled the trigger.

SHERIFF CHAPMAN:

Was it anything discernible?

PASTOR CALMES DOYLE:

Barely.

I think it was something to

the effect of walking young

or walk kenya...I'm not

sure. But sheriff I need to

get to Emily's house for

some counseling so if you'll

please excuse me....
