"I have never heard that the North-American Indian played at chess, but he can play at 'pitch and toss' with the best of us. So can the Guacho, and the Mexican, and the Cowboy, and the Cossack, and the Britisher. . . .We all did it, but we did it unbeknown to the authorities, who, from Colonel Cody to Black Heart, would have lynched us if they had caught us."
