Settling in room 24 of the Dodge House, Doc mostly drank and gambled, but occasionally, he provided professional services to the townspeople. Holliday, Dentist, very respectfully offers his professional services to the citizens of Dodge City and surrounding country during the summer. But mostly he was gambling at the Alhambra and dealing cards at the Long Branch Saloon. During those first years, the population varied according to the season, swelling during the summer with the influx of cowboys, cattle buyers, gamblers and prostitutes. Business houses, dance halls, and saloons catered to the Texas trade. They sang and danced, and fought and bit, and cut and had a good time generally, making music for the entire settlement.
