Jim rides into the town of Sedgewick and meets with a government official, A.T. Redmond, to have the man sign some appropriation papers. Richmond is eager to go to the famed Sedgewick Spa and checks in at the hotel. The clerk gets him the key for his usual room, #12, and Jim accompanies him upstairs. Redmond signs the papers and Jim leaves. As he goes out the front, he hears the bell ring but sees no sign of the clerk. When he checks the board, Jim discovers that the bell in #12 is ringing and goes back to Richmond’s room. Two men stop him, saying that #12 belongs to their mother.
