: E. Lane, old friend!
: Yes, that was a close shave there in Old Amsterdam, but I managed to make the passage north just in time. It is good to hear there are so many possibilities to make myself useful here. We must meet as soon as possible, so you can give me the green light to start bullying, harassing, molesting and plainly murdering people around here. You know I need something to keep me busy, otherwise I will become really annoying. On that account, do you know where this little pest, called the Go-Between is hiding? There are rumours that this irritating, nosy rat of a spy informed the Courier of my curriculum vitae.
: See you soon,
: PS: Can you do something about the Dutch Trader calling me Tulip-Bulb-Brain all the time? It is starting to get to me.
Yes, we'll meet with the Dutch Trader and the French Trader in two nights and a bit. Maybe we can grab a quick, home cooked, *hot* meal at JFC's Fast Food Eatery some time?
There is much to tell you and even more to show you about Mohicanland. You're going to love it! Bumppo's Tavern is a hopping place, especially when the Frontier Females Freedom Fighters hold their meetings there. The Trade Wars (or so the populace thinks) are working out nicely. We have the finest criminal defense attorney (Can-Tuc-kee Victoria) wampum, shillings, silver, guilders, or Rum can buy ... just in case. Let's see ... they don't shoot horses here. They just shoo them and beat them when they're already dead.
Oh! You know that Mohicanized Dutch extraction scout I was telling you about? Hawkeye ... Well! He got himself in some serious female trouble and is now in hiding. We managed to get hold of his Wampum Sash for a good price, too.
That stuffy singing master Gamut is back in the colony. Murder rates are up; so is thieving. Yes, Marinus, you're going to fit right in at Mohicanland.
As for Go-Between; what a ratelwacht! Always acting as the gossip police for that scourge of the black market merchants, "The Courier"!!! It was definitely Go-Between who ratted us out. Let's track Go-Between and sell the pest to the Huron.
And the Dutch Trader is still calling you Tulip-Bulb-Brain?! Ha ha! I will deal with it, but you must admit, it's a d*mn sight better sounding than Petronella!
See you at Camerons'!
