: Mes amis,
: It is true that I have been away for some time and a meeting was held with the Dutch trader and E. Lane for many thing have come to pass. I do have most of what I arrived with but have an awful head ache.
: My native spies told me of a small Spanish force coming up from the Floridas in search of their missing trade goods. (I must say that I "liberated" all the Spanish goods in my possesion and DID NOT steal them) After my "friends" and I had a brief parley with them, they saw that I was an honest man and gave me the rest of their goods and quickly turned back for Florida.
: So, when next you see me, I will have for sale the finest castile soap, muscavado sugar and rare Spanish chocolate all from the tropical islands. They have even promised to send me a shipment of trade silver. We shall see.

I see you've made it back safely from Cameron's Cabin. Bien! The deal was a good one. Dutchie sends her regards.
As we spoke about during our clandestine meeting, I wish to bargain with you for the goods d'espagnol. Very, very interested!
Ah! Le chocolat d'espagnol ... the 1 800 Mohican-Mama will be forced to buy from moi when she wishes to whip up her chocolat fu-u-udge!
C'est bien, cher commercant!
Next week then? Another negotiation ...
