Too bad the man she wrote to never responded. Annoyed with her potential husband’s disregard, and after being warned that part of Wyoming was outlaw country, Carrie decided against her and Dolly going there, even after the rancher writing to Dolly sent tickets for then both.
Much to Carrie’s distress, Dolly, the little traitor, left a letter stating she fell in love with Jesse Hardin. She left a note saying she decided to marry him, and hoped Carrie would join her.
