Here is Mad Dog Morgan who is holding the hotel manager’s wife Mrs MacPherson at gun point. Morgan threatened the woman that if she didn’t play him a song on the piano, he’d shoot her. Poor mrs MacPherson wasn’t playing the piano well enough for him and once again threatened to shoot her.
Morgan is cuddling up to his bottle of rum that he forced the manager to give him (at gun point) earlier.
