: Dear Peg,
: Not likely to see that Girty fella again soon. He's huntin' agin, and I better not see him til he comes back with that eagle feather he promised me for my scalpin' tuft.
: Howsever, if YOU want to tell Girty and the Shawnees they have to wear shirts at Bumppo's, have at it - I'm not likely to put my dainty self in danger passin' an order like that. Like to start a riot at Bumppo's, that's what I think! Besides, where else can we Femin-nine types get a gander at them shinin' pecs? We aren't often invited to attend Dr. Mary's Ladies' Night at Fort Wm. Henry, ye know.
: She, etc.
>>Dear She Who Tracks,
I must thank ye fer' not losin' your 'ead when I gotta cuttin' mad with me skelpin' knife on yar' dress t'other night. I a'feerd it was jes' a tad too much ale & the excitment at being so near ye', a child of the wilderness like me'self [and the thought of seein' yar' legs ;-) ]... I'm jes' glad ye' did not scream, for that would have got me blood real hot, and brought the Sheriff and those Colonials runnin' after me!
Yar' skelp tuft did indeed look mighty fine, miss, , and I have found a prized eagle feather fer' it [you will find it in the holler' of that lil' willow tree near the creek where we's sat fer' a spell, if ye' recall?]...
As fer' Mistress O'Reilly wishin' fer' me Shawnee brothers to put shirts on before enterin' her establishment, I will pass yar' message along, but I cannot enforce it, this up to you, miss.
She Who Tracks, I look forward to our next rendezvous, and the site of the eagle feather in yar' skelp tuft ....
