When Hardie captures the notorious Johnny Ringo, the outlaw requests that he be able to visit his sister, who is dying, for three days and to keep from the young woman Ringo's criminal background but another man may mess things up.
Wells Fargo has a $5,000 reward out for Johnny Ringo. He is playing in a poker game with several other men including Lou Dancher. Ringo is having a good night and when he cashes out after beating Dancher with a full house over three kings, Dancher is ready to draw on him but the dealer stops him. Ringo stops by the telegraph office where he picks up a message and then leaves town. Shortly afterwards, Jim Hardie rides into town looking for Johnny although he wants no part of a gunfight with him. The clerk at the telegraph office shows Jim a copy of the message Johnny picked up which was from a Ruth at Prescott City. Jim finds Johnny camped on the trail and arrests him. Johnny asks for one favor. He wants to go see his sister Ruth who is dying for three days. She was sent west for her health but it isn't helping. She knows nothing of Johnny's past. Jim agrees to the request but Lou Dancher follows them and may spoil the agreement.Written by

Oh, your information's all right. You just misinterpreted the word.
Yeah? What word?
