Thursday, September 27, 1888. The Central News Agency receives a mysterious letter that reads,“Dear Boss, I keep hearing the police have caught me, but they won’t fix me just yet.

Those mercenary polices have contrasted strongly with the righteous
The Horseman Arrives Tonight... right? What is the real legend of Sleepy Hollow? Is it an undead assassin in search of the skull taken from him in the revolutionary war, or a man trying to scare away the competition for his woman? Both stories convey a sense confrontation between Ichabod and Brom Bones, in which Brom acts like the horseman to scare Ichabod. The biggest controversy, one that completely changes the story, is the fact that in one story the undead horseman is real, and in the other he is just a man.

The justice looks like the major issue of the plot, as Abner’s actions are explained by himself and his family as a response to an insult. But it is clear the man’s logic is twisted; Abner Snopes provoked all incidents by himself to create a reason to excuse his desire for fires. The final scenes of the story suggest the justice was served, as the man was caught during his final crime. But this is also a complex situation, as other family members, who did not support Abner’s position directly, did not experience the improvement in their living conditions and even could be hurt or killed. The story starts with the description of a trial, where Abner Snopes was accused in burning of his neighbor’s barn.
However, the inexplicable amount of “dragons” that Chandler presents in the novel hinder Marlowe from being able to accomplish his goals without obstacles. Chandler produces the classic detective novel through his use of conniving criminals, corrupt police, and characters that are slighted by the actions of those in their lives. The novels chief detective, Philip Marlowe, is unable to eliminate every criminal that crosses his path, much to his dismay. Although most of the offenders are apparent from the beginning of the novel, some are not revealed until towards the end. Consider mob boss Eddie Mars; well known by the police officers, along with his hitman Canino, yet no one seems to do anything about it.

In Mattie’s world the meaning of true grit is to have a lot of courage. I feel everybody except Tom Chaney has some form of true grit. For example Rooster Cogburn showed true grit because he charged against seven armed riders with two pistols on a horse by himself. However Mama has true grit because she is battling death back at home. The reason Tom Chaney has no true grit is because he is a coward.
