Dallas Winston's appearance at the abandoned church on Jay Mountain was unexpected, and in Ponyboy's mind it "meant one thing: contact with the outside world." Dally's arrival meant a friendly face for the homesick boys to see, but he also provided news (about Darry and Soda as well as the upcoming rumble with the Socs), encouragement, transportation and money for some real food at the local Dairy Queen. But Dally also brought a letter from Sodapop for Pony. Dally had loyally maintained that he knew nothing about the boys' disappearance, but Soda didn't believe him, so he left a letter and some money for Pony just in case Dally saw him again.
