George instructs Candy to tell Curley about his wife, stating that he doesn't want the guys to think he was responsible for the murder.
However, George has an ulterior motive.
What is it?
He wants the men to go to the barn so he can steal Carlson's gun.
He's afraid Curley will beat him up.
He wants to get a head start finding Lennie.
He wants Candy to prove himself before they invest in the farm together.
He is too upset to talk about it and doesn't want the other men to see him cry.
