Most people are blind. Yes they are blind to the shortcomings of someone close to them someone sometimes to their own. That was the way with the three women who lived in the old Hopkins house on the hill, three very different women but all of them blind to the characters of the others. There was Lola Hopkins mistress of the house, warm sincere Lola happy in her coming marriage to Gregory. There was Patsy Hopkins Lolas cousin whose only happiness is in herself her youth, her loveliness and old Fraulein the German housekeeper who has been Patsys governess and who had found happiness with serving her with years of devotion. None of them really knew the others; all of them were a little blind that is until it happened.

Killing a simple farmer for self defence is nothing to make him proud but if he could kill a man as fast on the draw as Marshall Matt Dillon that would increase his reputation. Creed spends his time in Dodge antagonising Matt to draw against him but Matt has never seen anyone draw as fast as Creed and is not interested in making Creed feel like a bigger man.

It was a quiet night for San Francisco, almost too quiet the fog drifting in from the Pacific had hung lazily over the city streets at first then settled down heavily thicker and thicker blotting out everything. There was something ominous about it even to an old San Franciscan like Hilary Gain and although he wouldnt admit it even to himself he was wavering. Mildreds nervousness when he stopped by to pick her up made it worse. Here it was he kept telling himself, the moment they had both been waiting for, planning for, anticipating for so many months, the moment when she had make the break with her husband once and for all, pack her bags and go away with Hilary.

There are many kinds of jealousy and none of them are any good. The jealous one in love is most frequent but there is another more terrible jealousy that of a man for his coworker. Tom Reddick was jealous of Charles Freemonts cleverness, his ability to succeed. Always when there was applause for a job well done Charles Freemont was patted on the back and when he was given the position of General Manager of the plant, the job that had been Tom Reddicks, that is when the jealousy reached a sickening height.
