Dear Mr. Girty,
Due to some technical problems with the carrier pigeon, I did not receive your message until today. I am so sorry that I was not there to greet you with warm compresses for your boo-boos when you arrived at my corn crib last night. I DO hope you found the emergency First Aid Kit I keep near the blankets I have left for your pallet. There are always remedies inside this kit for most of what might ail ye...a big ol' bottle of Snake Oil guaranteed to soothe your troubled liver & calm digestive disorders, a plaster of toadflax & bacon grease for troublesome warts or blisters from wet moccasins, some sassyfras to ease anxiety and work-related stress (bein' a renegade ain't easy, I know), some clean lint & flannel fer bandagin' up hatchet wounds an' the like, a fairly sharp needle & some strong thread fer stitchin' up lacerations caused by knives and such, and a wee bit o' rum to splash about for disinfectin' or to drink for other medicinal purposes. Mayhap you were able to doctor your own self up a bit with these provisions and are feeling a tad better tonight?
Yours Most Graciously,
Post a Followup
