: Yep, I have to agree with Dana. This is truly, by far, the coolest place I have ever found on the Internet. I was a "lurker" for only about two days before I decided to jump in and post, and within about five days I felt right at home. Not only was I learning everything about the 18th-century I could ask for, but I had great wacky characters to enjoy, DDL discussions galore, and a bunch of folks even came cheerfully to my aid when I was feeling bad one night. I've been to so many other sites and boards where people made me feel unwelcome or just plain ignored the newbies, so Mohicanland definitely holds a dear place in my heart! Thank you Rich and Elaine, and thanks everybody! One question, somebody HAS to help me find the Red-Haired Lass a job in Mohicanland. She's been bakin' shortbread for Miss Marcia till her arms ache, but she needs to start gettin' out of the cottage sometime...
Dear Christina -
We might have been busy for a bit but do not think we hadn't been giving due consideration to your application for gainful employment in MohicanLand. We have thought about it ... your prior employment at the Coffee House establishment, your fondness for wearing wench blouses, & your willingness (eagerness, even) to eavesdrop, snoop, & gossip - all under the reputable cover of journalist commends you agreeably to the establishment run by one Peg O'Reilly. Overworked & undercompensated as Mrs. O'Reilly is, she has agreed to take you on at her modest tavern, known as Bumppo's. Perhaps you've heard of it? She has standards, however - you must be ready & willing to left hook, spit on, cuss at, & kick unruly patrons out the door & you must be well trained in the Art of Bawdy Tunes. If so, consider yourself a hired tavern wench at Bumppo's.
One note of caution ... we have your word not one word of words spoken or uttered at Bumppo's, nor tidbits of scandalous activities, whether illicit, humdrum, or mundane, shall find their way in to periodicals from the colony of South Carolina? All the news that's fit to print ... & then some, is the property of The Courier & no other!
