: : I send member of my swarm, Can This Bee , to bring you this news.
: : I have beeheld a large group of Iroquois camped on the shores of Schroon Lake. I have sent one of my swarm to investigate. Quilting Bee flew to the camp and nestled in the blankets of the Chief. When she returned I asked her "What’s the buzz, Quilting Bee?" She told me that the Iroquois hold many prisoners, among them the Courier reporter She-Who-Tracks-La Longue Carabine. Many of Goat Clan wish war against Mohicanland. Others wish to trade scalps for the goods brought by the traders. Many warriors talk. Much argue. Much fight.
: : Evil is in the eye of The Bee Holder. War is not good. Scalps are not good. My swarm is at your disposal.
: : The Bee Holder
: Dear Bee Holder,
: Your Figure 8 dance has been received and understood. We now must ponder; To BEE or not to BEE? That is the question. Our sense of it is is that we should take seriously your message. She-Who-Tracks-La Longue Carabine; Is She Beeing treated as a hostile or is She Beeholden to none (other than beeing held captive)? Has 'Can This Bee' beeheld an escape route? Should we risk an extermination, we mean, rescue mission?
: The Iroquois village is buzzing with war talk? Please Bee advised that we wish your swarm to Bee on the alert and ready for a sting operation.
: Thank you very much for this news. We are Beeholden to you, Bee Holder.
