Crittenden (accompanied by his wife and two of his seven children) was crossing San Franciso Bay on the ferryboat, El Capitan, when suddenly a lady wearing a black veil stepped up to him, said You have ruined me and my child, drew a pistol, and shot him dead." "Laura Fair was instantly attracted to the tall handsome lawyer and before long they spent all their nights together in Laura’s bedroom. But this was no idle dalliance; soon they were declaring undying love for each other and when Laura suggested marriage, Crittenden agreed. Laura, of course, did not know that Crittenden was already married."
