Latour receives correspondence from the Bishop of Leavenworth, Kansas, that the Gold Rush of  Colorado has created a need for a priest to serve the makeshift towns of tents and shacks that have  cropped up near Pikes Peak. Informing Latour that the Colorado territory is under his domain, it is  incumbent upon him to assign the priest. Latour tells Vaillant that he will fill the position. Although  Vaillant is prepared to leave immediately, Latour orders him to stay until a custom wagon can be built  and adequate provisions acquired. Vaillant reflects on a murderer he visited in Chimayo. The criminal  was making a pair of boots for the patron saint of the Chimayo church. His parents would come for  his execution and return home with the boots. Vaillant is certain the men to whom he'll administer in  Colorado will be less devout.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
