Pure luck saves him from imminent death and dozens of enemies, but, alas, it is not able to keep Rawlins forever.

The locals became so angry that they sent Rawlins to dig his own grave. But the man guarding him did not notice and missed the exact blow with a shovel. So Hoyt got rid of another trouble.
