What am I doing wrong here? I'm trying to work with something from a remote.

keybounceMBP:Finite-Fluids michael$ git fetch origin Readme-File
>From https://github.com/keybounce/Finite-Fluids
 * branch            Readme-File -> FETCH_HEAD
keybounceMBP:Finite-Fluids michael$ git status
On branch develop
nothing to commit, working tree clean
keybounceMBP:Finite-Fluids michael$ git merge Readme-File
merge: Readme-File - not something we can merge
keybounceMBP:Finite-Fluids michael$ git merge origin/Readme-File
merge: origin/Readme-File - not something we can merge
keybounceMBP:Finite-Fluids michael$ git checkout origin/Readme-File
error: pathspec 'origin/Readme-File' did not match any file(s) known to git.
keybounceMBP:Finite-Fluids michael$ git checkout origin Readme-File
error: pathspec 'origin' did not match any file(s) known to git.
error: pathspec 'Readme-File' did not match any file(s) known to git.

I'm trying to avoid "git pull" -- my understanding is that merges whatever was 
contributed whereever the contributor said to put it (typically master), rather 
than where I want it (typically develop or a fresh branch off develop).
