When Charles Portis sees a great line, he grabs it

by Mr. Sheehy

And Benaiah the son of Jehoiada was a valiant man of Kabzeel, a doer of great deeds. He struck down two ariels of Moab. He also went down and struck down a lion in a pit on a day when snow had fallen. (2 Samuel 23:20)

This ends my true account of how I avenged Frank Ross’s blood over in the Choctaw Nation when snow was on the ground. (from Charles Portis’s True Grit)
