"Drop that glass and take the other one,"he whispered.He gave the remaining glass of Whisky to Hernry just as the color began to strike midnight.

Henry emptied the glass.His face grew whiter and whiter."Boys,"he said."I'm feeling sick.I want to lie down."

Henry was asleep almost before the words were out of his mouth.In a moment,his two friends has picked him up and carried him into the bedroom.They closed the door and came back.They seemed to be getting ready to leave.So,I said"Please don't go gentleman.She will not know me,I am a stranger to her."

They looked at each other."His wife has been dead for 19 years,"Tom said.

"Dead?"I whispered."That is the words,"he said.“She went to see her parents about 6 months after she got married.On way back,on the Saturday evening in June,when she was almost here,the Indians captured her.No one ever saw her again. Henry lost his mind.He thinks she is still alive.When June comes,he thinks she has gone on her trip to see her parents,then he begins to wait for her to come back.He gets out that old letter,and we come around to visit,so he can read it to us.On the Saturday night,she is supposed to come home,we come here to be with him.We put a sleeping drug in his drink,so he will sleep through the night.Then he is alright for another year."

Joe picked up his hat and his guitar."We have done this every June for 19 years,"he said."The first year there were 27 of us.Now just two of us are left."He opened the door of the pretty little house.And the two old men disappeared into the darkness of the Stanislaus.
