The Way West (1955)

Damn gullies, streams, trees. Keep going. Three cheers for Oregon.
Fall into bed at night and feel your wife's warmth and know her back is turned. Know it and not care, except deep in you where you keep your hates. Let the knotted muscles melt. Let your mind drift. Let women come into it, like the girl, Mercy McBee. As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he. All right, so is he. Let sleep flow over you, if you can.

Curtis Mack didn't talk to Amanda, not as man to wife, or encourage her to talk to him. Not these days. Not, he hoped, ever again. They said what had to be said. And sometimes she tried the idle things, weather or mud or dust, and he answered shortly and saw the hurt in her face and was glad of it, and that was all.
It would be all, he told himself as the train rolled on toward the Little Blue and the tension built up in him. He wouldn't bemean himself again. Let her save it, and to hell with itl He wouldn't beg as he had begged that night after they had crossed the Kaw.
Spring had been in the air, and a night bird cried outside the tent, and a breeze played along the canvas, and he wanted her, as so many times before.
" No, Curt," she said. "Pleasel"
" It's been a long time."
She pushed his seeking hand away. "Please."
" Why not?"
" I'm afraid."
" Afraid?"
" Yes."
" Of what?"
" You know."
