OK, Mike...lest you berate me again, I'm Posting, already! ;o)
I just finished reading the Albany Part 1 section of the partial script, and I definitely have a comment to make. I know that this is an actual quote from the script in Rich's possession, but I also believe that someone made either a typo or a spelling mistake of some note! The reference to the "poltroon's" house is almost certainly in error. The word "poltroon" was an insult of dueling proportions, meaning "a wretch, coward or craven." I believe the term was supposed to be "patroon," meaning "one who held an estate in land with certain manorial privileges granted under the old Dutch Governments of New York and New Jersey." This certainly makes more sense, especially when you think about the beautiful estate where Cora and Alice were being housed when Duncan found them.
Any comments, you Mohican fans out there??
