Blair had hardly reached the ground with his trusty Shotgun we Hen he was greeted with a double discharge of a shot gun one from the rear of the stage and the other from the Corner of the stable both passing so near his head that the powder of one warmed his face.

The report of his gun had not died away before the cold muzzle of a gun was placed against his breast one of the robbers with the intention no doubt of making sure work of the Brave messenger.
