Epilogue – based on the script by Dan Ullman

 

(JESS comes out of the Sherman ranch house with his gunbelt in his hand and hangs the gunbelt over the hitching rail. He pulls a piece of paper out of his shirt pocket, leans against the tree in front of the ranch house and begins to read. DAISY is cutting red climbing roses.)

 

DAISY: (Shows a rose to JESS) Isn’t that beautiful?

 

(JESS shakes his head affirmatively, perhaps more about the letter than the rose.)

 

DAISY: Someone must have written you something awfully nice. You’ve been smiling all morning.

 

JESS: Somebody did, Daisy. Ginny Hawks. She says: “Dear Jess, I can see. Not very much yet. The doctor thinks by the end of the year my vision may be close to normal, with the help of eye glasses. Anyway, I can see well enough to write this letter and it’s the first one I’ve written to anybody. Mother sends her love along with mine. Bless you. Ginny. P. S. I saw a rose today.” (JESS takes the rose from DAISY.)
