Negroes in general, and runaways in particular, Cain knew, had a sixth sense when it came to spotting a slave catcher. It was as if they carried a peculiar and strong scent about them that only Negroes could detect. Cain had experienced that before.

Wildly swinging his blackjack with one hand and his Colt with the other, he fought his way out of the crowd and made for his horse, tied at the end of the alley. He managed to mount and ride away as they threw stones and curses at him.
