"Hank Langdon is a danged good lawman and a gentleman. He ain't prone to salty language. Come to think of it, I'll be danged if I ever heard him say more'n five words strung in a row. He ain't much for drinking, neither. Until Hank came to town, I hadn't never seen a man run into a burning saloon to save a lady's chair so she might sit more comfortably outside."
- Farley Applewood, Cougar Gulch, NV

"That man saved my hide from the depraved torments of Pancho Caligula. When he brought me back to town unharmed, I offered him the comforts of my womanhood, but he tipped his hat and told me that his trail is a lonesome one. Hank Langdon is a fine man."
- Mary Copperneck, Burning Tree, MO

"I expect to be shot dead by Hank Langdon within the week, and I ain't sorry about it. He got me fair and square. I visited bad upon this world and I welcome the justice of a worthy man."

- Genghis Calhoun, Hell's Porch, AZ

Personal Statement:

"I ain't much. I done what I done. The good works of a man follow him to the hereafter, they say, but God willing, mine'll rest here on earth a spell whilst I enjoy His kingdom without the company of hanged men and sundry lonesome sorrows."

– Dr. David Thorpe (@Arr)
