: : Dear Brother Girty,
: : Not all mischief in Mohicanland can be laid at the foot of the redman. Not by a long shot! The pale faces (especially the females) can be as vicious, evil and wicked an enemy as you could imagine as witnessed by the recent conflict known as "Queen Lizzie's War."
: : A. Moravian
: Esteemed Brother Girty,
: I must, on account of my consistent policy of accuracy and correctness, agree with A. Moravian that the vast majority of the recent political activity has been waged by that Pretender to the Throne, would-be "Queen Lizzie". Our history is frought with ill-begotten plans to usurp rightful leaders and great thinkers by those with weak minds, and thus have we seen another such example, which has seriously disrupted the peace of Fair MohicanLand. Why, the grumblings between me and my brethren Traders were nothing compared to it. And as for any disruption of the Wyandots, why I couldn't even notice!
: Kindest regards,

returned from guiding Caldwell's Coy on a raid against some hapless Colonials intruding upon my "brothers" hunting grounds. We took many scalps & much plunder, but one scalp that escaped me upon my return journey was that of "Queen Lizzie", the creator of much recent havoc here! I did have her dizzy & hapless head under my knife, when some co-horts of hers sprang forth from the brush and neatly [& almost permanently] parted my own scalp with a few well placed shots of their muskets!
In the confusion & the smoke she made her escape to a waiting canoe, that ferried her to a small schooner and safely out of my longrifle's range.....
Upon returning I have found out that, indeed, my Wyandot brothers had been responsible for the destruction & havoc caused at the Couriers shoppe, but, that it was "Queen Lizzie" herself who bought their services for a small chest of useless trade goods.... for visiting such destruction upon the Couriers shoppe, for such useless trinkets as these, I seriously chastised my Wyandot brothers....
They will not repeat this mistake, but if we must visit destruction upon the Couriers shoppe, know it will be for good cause ;-)
Regards from the Wilderness,
